"Expect big things from this one - very big things." This preview looks at the sheer amount of story and plot that has gone into Mass Effect.
Destroctoid thought it was disappointing. I haven't really seen anything that grabs my attention yet. I said the same thing about folklore but after playing the demo I'm definitely getting folklore.
In separate reports, IGN, GameSpy, and IGN all say it's great. I've never even heard of Destroctoid before or seen any reviews from them before.
Look this is a sci fi rpg. is it an rpg. well Sci Fi rpgs are for nerds and they aint gonna work. unless it had star wars in its name... Nothing compared to FFXIII
IGN and 1UP say Heavenly Sword sucks and rated it 6 and 7. So sssshhhhhhhh You name one unknown website, like Sony fandroids also like to believe NextGenIreland reviews for Warhawk 9.6 and Heavenly Sword 9.7. While trusted websites like IGN and 1UP totally trash the PS3 games. In the end: the 360 users will get the AAA games like Bioshock, Halo 3 and Mass Effect. PS3 owners will play BetaBluRay movies and that rubber duck game
this is coming from 360-gamer a website biased to X360 read destructoid they say " MASS EFFECT is one of the worst games ever made"
they didn't even play it so they couldn't judge the game play. Mass effect has for the most part got good press even non 360 gamer sites (though knowing you you would probably say they were bribed to say that) so there shouldn't be much to worry about. Bioware has a pretty good track record so there really isn't much to worry about.
It say you are the ultimate retard who should be put down at the nearest opportunity. You never have anything of value to say.
yeah and your comments are always unbiased
I thought Mass Effect would not come out until the end of November. What's the score Destroctoid gave Mass Effect? What other games have Destroctoid reviewed? What scores did Destroctoid give to BioShock, Heavenly Sword, and Lair?
Mass Effect is a November title, and it`s still a couple of months until we have reviews based on the final game code.
Destructoid does not review games. It's not a gaming mag or site. It's a blog. A gamers' blog. It's a place for the gamers to go blog, rant, shout, sing, and complain. One of the bloggers got to go the Penny Arcade Expo. He saw a live demo of Mass Effect in a crowd, and he was not impressed. He was more impressed by the pretty girl (booth babe?) who was playing the demo. Maybe he was distracted by the girl, or maybe the girl turned him down for a date.
bubble for you, i like your posts. just wanted you to know.
Bioware never fails to deliver and Mass Effect will be great :)
True, Bioware know how to use their potions to create great RPG`s, KOTOR and Jade Empire shows what care and detail Bioware puts into their development. And their reviews are quite telling.
Bioware. Nuff said!!
I am looking forward to this game actually coming out and seeing what kind of reviews it gets. I was a big fan of KOTOR and Jade Empire, so I am interested to see what Bioware does here.
if you love kotor, your probably gonna need to pick up mass effect, from the videos ive seen the two play pretty similarly. personally, im glad they're getting back to the space/sci-fi atmosphere, because tho jade empire was great, kotor had me cracked out playing through it at least 3 times
I can't wait for this game! I loved KOTOR!
amen. mass effect looks like KOTOR went and smoked a bunch of crack, injected a ton of steroids, and turned into a bigger, better game that will pass the crack addiction onto anyone who plays.
i loved kotor as well Overall it seems that its getting positive press aside from a few like destructiod. And they even admitted they didn't even play it. "Gameplay is kind of hard to judge without an actual controller in your hands, so I'm going to reserve judgment on that." So overall its looks like it could be pretty good.
its almost three years since kotor 2
Bio Wear knows what they are doing. I'm sold. F*** that haters. Nuff said
Jade Empire NwN KOTOR Baldur's Gate Bioware has a remarkable record... They... Never... Fail... they're some of the best studios out there... I havn't a single doubt about Mass Effect.. Just the fact that Bioware is developing it is enough for me...
the way things are set up for the dev financially, Bioware has all the money necessary to make their game when they started making it. they know what they set out to make, and they will delay the hell out of it until they get it right. they merged with pandemic studios under one investment firm not that long ago, tho both studios remain independent of another. this essentially means they can do whatever they want (creatively in their games), as they no longer have to "impress" investors to get a green light for their work. im never a person to suggest having blind faith in a company, but bioware is about as ace of a developer as you can get. this game will either be great this fall, or will be delayed until it becomes great. god i hope there's no delay
The only title that will challenge BIOSHOCK for Game of the Year.
counting single player only, id agree. factoring mulitplayer and additional features, i dont see how Halo 3 is going to be beat for goty
What puzzles me is that everyone complains about the 360's dvd9 drive and how limited it is. How the heck does this game pull it off as I heard this game is absolutely massive with tons of dialogue? I'd like to hear people's opinions as ppl always say that Blu Ray is needed for gaming yet still games like Heavenly Sword were only 6 hours to finish?? Maybe they're using compression techniques really well?
the people who say that also forget about PC, and how every pc game right now is on DVD 9 as well. and every wii game, on a dvd 9. ps3 games are the only ones on blu ray, and how much longer are they exactly? so far, it seems all that extra storage isnt providing that many benefits
