Steven Wong reports:
''Mass Effect, last year's immensely successful sci-fi role-playing game developed by Bioware (Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire) for the Xbox 360 makes a great impact on the PC . With improved graphical resolution, an added tutorial and an expertly designed interface, it's almost blasphemy to call this game a port. The controls are so good that it's virtually impossible to tell that the game was originally a console release. Although it comes with some heavy system requirements, particularly the required 12 GB chunk of hard drive space, it is well worth the experience.''
