PC Zone writes: "The excitement in the air was thick as toothpaste. Mass Effect has already established itself on the 360 as a classic RPG and one that corrects many of the complaints directed at BioWare's previous epics. Having twice played through the console version, the true source of my nervous excitement was to see this great game arrive on my platform of choice.
Porting a console game to PC is a process that can go very wrong - but thankfully Mass Effect reaches its apex on the PC. BioWare have made a game that flatters the PC's controls so perfectly that the 360 version feels, in comparison, as effective as a papier-mâché hammer. Gone without trace are the clunky UI and irksome combat of the 360 - with the mouse and keyboard, players can look forward to a smoother, more enjoyable and better-looking escapade than their sofa-bound siblings."
