Mass effect is a beautiful combination of game play, story, and everything else that a game should have. The story is so immersive if you let it settle in, and not to mention it is so deep that you have to make sure you don't fall to far in to it. The characters are also amazing. They just make you feel like you are right there talking to them.
Here is the story so far. You are commander Sheppard. You have been made an elite unit known as a specter. You are the first human to do so, and the galaxy has mixed emotions about it. You find out this plan of this alien named Saren. Long story short you go all over the galaxy finding information and chasing him.
My favorite parts of the game were: Joker- your pilot to your ship. He is pretty funny but very brave. Vehicle-this part is amazing! I love watching the suspension on the vehicle roll as you land on uncharted worlds.
Gripes- The only thing that i did not like about Mass Effect was that the RPG system was kind of confusing at first, but then you get the hang of it. Also, at the very beginning there is no tutorial to help you get a hang on the ropes, and since it is using the UT3 engine the texture pop in was pretty bad.
Ending- I don’t want to spoil it, but I can say that it is a fucking awesome ending.
Wish list for sequel- Pretty much fix the gripes. And please Bioware, make your own in-house engine for it. I hate texture pop in during an awesome cinematic. And make the frame rate a bit more stable.
I hope that after considering this review you will buy or at least rent this game, and find out the ending for yourself!
