However, revisiting Bioware's space epic Mass Effect for its PC debut was a must; this is the way the game was meant to be played. Every stumble that the original Xbox 360 version of the title made has been rectified in this port, which is not what we're used to saying when 360 games make the jump to the PC. Quite simply, all of the most significant complaints with the original have been addressed. With only a few slight issues, Mass Effect for the PC is a stellar game."
