GameSpy: Mass Effect PC Review

GameSpy writes: "When we reviewed Mass Effect for the Xbox 360, we were so thoroughly entertained by BioWare's rich storytelling and the lovingly crafted sci-fi setting that we hailed it as one of the greatest role-playing games ever made. The highly anticipated PC version has arrived, and now a whole new crop of gamers will be able to sail the vast oceans of deepest space, encounter terrible villains and save the universe in an epic tale that shouldn't be missed.

Mass Effect transports you to a not-too-distant future where mankind has discovered technologies that have catapulted it into space. Aliens have been working together or waging bitter wars for many years, and humanity has been quick to begin colonizing different planets, visit distant star systems, and make a name for itself in the galaxy."

Pros:
-Strong narrative
-Tons of galactic exploration
-Raises the bar for the role-playing genre

Cons:
-Mako handling is still wonky
-Questionable copy protection
-Side quests lack impact of main story (Mass Effect, PC) 5/5
