This is a compilation of three action role-playing games in which players assume the role of Commander Shepard as he/she leads a mission to save the galaxy from a race of powerful mechanical beings known as the Reapers. From a third-person perspective, players traverse the galaxy exploring planets, interact with characters, and engage in combat against enemy forces. Players use futuristic machine guns, shotguns, assault rifles, and bionics abilities (e.g., lift, statis, warp) to defeat human enemies and alien creatures in frenetic combat. Enemies sometimes emit splashes of blood when hit, resulting in bloodstains on characters and the environment. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a close-up of an alien shooting himself in the head; a character executed at close range. As players progress through the game, they can engage in romantic relationships with others; cutscenes depict characters embracing, kissing, and caressing each other on a bed—sexual activity is implied. Characters are sometimes seen nude, with exposed buttocks and partially exposed breasts. The game contains story elements that reference drugs (e.g., “Narcotics flooded my veins when I attacked,” “the Cartel are a bunch of dirty drug pushers,” and “This deal is too important to have a drug addict negotiating it.”). One sequence depicts players' character engaging in a drinking contest; another scene shows the central character repeatedly drinking alcohol at bar, then passing out. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.
