Indeed its fricking awesome
Warping time and space for fun and profit can be very rewarding. Like taking down a Colossus with a handgun. Fifth playthrough so far and still learning new techniques and experiencing new dialogue. Your choices make a really big impact in what you experience. Anybody who hasn't played this is missing out on a classic. Expect a whole new wave of Mass Effect clones from second tier developers.
Mass Effect does have some deep game play, when you think you got it down a new strategy comes to mind. I will finaly get through my first playthrough when I get back from Florida. I had a power outage do to a storm and it corrupted my HD and some of my saved games so I had to start over and I was about 70% complete. Look a phantom disagree'r, I wonder what camp they are from?
My personal GOTY as well, it replaced Baldur's Gate II as my favorite RPG of all time.
While XBOX Slaves continue to marvel and overlook the many deficiencies of Mass Defect, Dark Sniper will continue to enjoy the superior lineup of AAA exclusives only on PLAYSTATION® 3. Good luck, Mass Defect is just as defective as your console. $niper
hahaha, that was actually funny. Sorry it really was.
"While XBOX fans continue to marvel at the beauty and the many gameplay features of Mass Effect, Dark Sniper (3rd place Lo$er) will continue to "wait" for the inferior lineup of AA 2nd rate exclusives only on PLAYSTATION® 3, and continue to buy the movies while the games get delayed over and over. Good luck, PS3 owners with your "movie player" console." LO$ER
You're the saddest Excuse I've seen for a gamer in a long time. pull that PS3 controller from your @ss and go play some games instead of trollin
*snif sniff* I smell fanboy.
GOTY ? i dont think so. that went to Bioshock
ME is not that great. bad framerate (usually in combat which is not good), bad texture pop in, very sparse environments with hardly any people to talk to, poor combat. this game was seriously over rated. its not even a open game, there are lots of planets in the systems but usually you can only land on one, but you can read information about the others (boring) and you can't even land on earth imo, oblivion is way better ME = yawn EDIT: the guy above who says he is on his 5th play through needs a job and a social life
I think ME is a great game (minus the few problems) but I agree that BioShock was Xbox 360 GOTY for 2007, I actually think Bioshock is the best Xbox 360 game up to now.
DarkSniper is the nemesis of Zhuk. Zhuk and DarkSniper: The fantastic twins. lol
Despite its flaws, Mass Effect is one of the finest I played all year. The fact that it adds in bits and pieces from different genres so well is amazing, as usually hybrid games like this usually fall short. Good Job Bioware. Still finishing up ME 1, but I can't wait until ME 2 is released.
Mass Effect is the kind of game that should be made into a movie.If done properly and,with a story as deep and compelling as that it cant fail. One of the best games i have played this generation.And my game of the year 2007 on the 360.
Great game but not GOTY, its not the game they origionaly planned & could have done with an extra year in development.
ME is indeed essential for any 360 owner and any gamer in general. I love it and believe it's 2nd GOTY after BioShock.
Great game i love it but i do have a small problem with it though and that is the story its not exactly new if you know what i mean as some of it was taken from different sci-fi shows. I really hope they can come up with something original in the second installment. Its defiantly one of the best games I've played this year but I'll probably get a lot of disagrees for saying this but its not GOTY that should go Bio-shock or Uncharted IMO.
LOL Mass Effect=Mass Defect seriously the framerate problems in Mass Effect are undescribable...LMFAO!XD
You know for all this whining and screaming about "Fox News Misrepresenting" something, people should probably stop Misrepresenting the story. One person on one show that does not work for Fox News says something stupid and all of a sudden it's as if there's some active daily campaign of death and destruction perpetuated by Fox against Mass Effect. It was ONE person on ONE show who DOESN'T work for Fox News and Fox has said EA is more than welcome to come and clear up the record at any point in time. One stupid lady makes a comment on air and people react for weeks about it and talking smack about Fox is "What the Cool Kids Do". This is nothing but an excuse to bash Fox for something it's not even responsible for.
And then they made with the BS panel saying waaah video games are bad for kids. And the title they ran with for the segment? "Se"xbox? Fair and balanced my ass.
Yes Mass Effect is a amazing game and all 360 owners hopefully get it. Sure it's a RPG but it's also a 3rd person shooter, adventure game, and even has a great story in it. It's pretty much the only game I've been playing on my 360 for some time now ^^ (and that's a good thing)
So THIS is where the 1000 hits one of my editors told me about came from!
