IGN writes: "My disappointment with Mass Effect Galaxy mirrors my disappointment with Metal Gear Solid Touch. Unrelated gameplay mechanics with a popular console game license strapped on top of it do not fool anybody. The simple shooting scenes could have belonged to any game. That the Mass Effect universe is bolted on to them is puzzling -- and, as mentioned, very disappointing to a real Mass Effect fan like me. The technical issues like slowdown and clumsy controls are just further twists of the knife. Avoid this uninspired, un-fun game".
