One thing that is being touted about an evolution for game play of Mass Effect is that in ME3 the use of the Kinect can allow a different type of play. EA released a breakdown of how you can use the Kinect Sensor to improve gameplay. They introduce the new gameplay as, “Kinect Puts You in Command! Be sure to check out why Mass Effect 3 is better with Kinect in this video. Try it for yourself when the demo becomes available February 14th!”
There is an entire ME3 cheat sheet that shows you all the Kinect commands that you can speak directly to your game. There is also a video that we’re including below that shows you how Mass Effect 3 is better with Kinect. One of the tips says that Voice Commands are particularly helpful when issuing commands that would ordinarily require you to bring up the on-screen display. In Mass Effect 3 you can use Kinect for Xbox 360 and your voice to issue commands. You can use this reference sheet for key words your Kinect will recognize. During conversations you can speak your response choice.
