The Milky Way galaxy came into being following the Big Bang billions of years ago. Mass Effect Galaxy came yesterday with a whimper.
Despite the star power of its name, this uninspired spin off fails to capture the spirit of series with gameplay devoid of fun.
While functional, Mass Effect Galaxy extends the series in such a way that shuns much of what has defined this award-winning franchise. Rather than latching onto the rich role-playing elements established by its console cousins, the game veers off into uncharted territory with tilt-based action that feels woefully out of place.
