Mass Effect User Reviews
If my calender serves me right, it is currently October 2012. BioWare's Mass Effect was released in 2007 - so you're probably asking yourself right now, why has it taken me this long to play a game that's approaching its 5th birthday in November? Honestly? Checking out videos of this game when it originally came out and its post-success, I felt it drifted too far away from my comfort zone. As broad as the game is, I thought it was too alien (pardon the pun) for me, and didn't think I'd grasp the back history of it all well enough. However, after speaking with friends and being edged on by t...
Control over the main characters actions
Repetitive side quests

What would you say if someone told you that they could pluck you from your mundane existence and plant you in the centre of a fantasy filled world where many of the rules of reality do not apply? Well, unless you find Jumanji buried under the earth’s surface then your chances are slim. On the bright side, at least game developers are doing what they can to give you this experience by pumping out Western RPGs. Here, the concept is simple: give the player as much control over their actions as possible. Most WRPGs released in the past few years do this well, but at the expense of an engaging, ...
Rich backhistory; simple learning curve for new players; Simple, good fun.The bad:
Barren landscapes; superficial charactersSummary:
This game is an RPG (role-playing game) at heart with TPS (Third-Person Shooter) gameplay. Shooter fans will be right at home with this game, while RPG enthusiasts will enjoy the role-playing that this game has to offer.
Mass Effect has a deep, rich storyline set several hundred years in the future. It is sci-fi, and can be labeled as a Space-Opera. Mankind has benefited from the discovery of "Mass Effect Relays," which allow exploration into deep space at faster-than-light (FTL) speeds. There are encounters with several alien species, each of which has its own backhistory.
Turians are a ...
Amazing depth in missions and different options in general like Oblivion, but even more.
Gameplay is one of the best I've ever played, if not the best.
3D renders and models are very impressive.
Has some minor flaws but nothing big.
Needs work (leveling up) to make the fighting mode easier to manage.
Character moves slow.
I liked this game from the moment I first played it. It's the best game I have for the 360. Before I bought it I wondered if I should because i thought the gameplay was like Gears of War, which I hate but, although it does resemble something like that, it was a far, far better surprise.
What makes the gameplay so great is that every character's EXP are synchronized so that means that the others not used in your party gain levels. When you gain levels you gain points to distribute to skills. You can use biotic powers (magic) and electronics and decryption to interact with objects (op...
