Mass Effect 3 Kinect voice-control cheat sheet

2 min read


Those core gamers witch Kinect units perched above (or below!) your TVs are likely terribly excited for Mass Effect 3 – as it’s probably the first real gamer’s game to utilise the technology. With Kinect, you can command your squad using nothing but the magical power of your voice – making them change weapons, tactics, employ biotic powers and all sorts of other really neat stuff that’s generally easier to use a controller for.

You’ll also be able to speak your in-game dialogue options, adding to the immersion, and making you look like a crazy person.

It might well be a gimmick, but it’s a heck of a fun one – and my neighbours keep  wondering just what the dickens is going on when I command Liara to touch my shotgun. To help you prep, EA’s released a Kinect voice-command cheat-sheet listing all the commands you’ll be able to shout at your TV when you’re taking Earth back from the Reapers.

[Warning: There might be a very slight spoiler in the commands]


The uh..list of squad members seems a little short, doesn’t it? Where the hell is Wrex?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
