Seeing the games demoed back to back, one previewer takes a look at the similarities between the two games after private showings at this year's X07 event in Toronto.
out-Halo Halo 3? the term itself shows the winner
Nice find and nice read. Both games are gonna be big and great but I love Mass Effect more because of it's character design and the fact that it's from BioWare the creators of KOTOR.
The comparisons are really mute bc they are 2 totally different genres. I think they are similar just bc they are both in a sci-fi universe. Either way Bioware is the master if the RPG genre. As is Bungie for the FPS genre. So I guess this is more of a compliment to both studios if anything.
is "moot", buddy. "Moot".
so your claim that the comparisons are mute comes off as a mystery
They are both 2 great games that are most wanted on the 360 and all, but Halo 3 will be way better because its less limited, and Mass Effect is more limited. I, Myself would go for Halo 3 first for the Multiplayer and 4 player co-op, and map editor instead of buying a single player game that will last a couple weeks or a month.
bt both equally as wanted for me and I will own both on day 1!!
i think halo 3 will be better
halo 3 will smash mass effect mass effect will this year biggest disappointing game
im also a sony fan but not a fanboy . besides that i heard it was a disappointment but i think by the time the game comes out it should be fun to watch and play
Mass Effects like a Halo+StarWars.... How can the combination Lose? hahahaha... Getting ME 1st day ^_^ also...Turians look alittle more Humanoid than Elites.....
well i have not read all of it, but i think in terms of sales halo 3. as for game play, well as everyone keeps saying, they are two different games. People will look for different things in both games. the biggest difference i can really say between them is this; i know lots of people who are just waiting to get a 360 when halo 3 comes out, then i ask them about masseffect and they say they have not heard of it. i show them some trailers and they go it looks awsome, i will prob get it when i get the 360. halo 3 will sell the 360, masseffect will be just another great game to buy for it. maybe once it has been played it's status will go beyond that, but halo is what people will buy the 360 for.
No game will beat Halo 3. Not this year. It is stupid to try (Bioshock will be the closest)
I'm really looking forward to Mass Effect - more so than Halo 3. But I don't think there's any way it's going to match Halo in sales.
I'll just say that both are stories that span a galaxy, but there is only one that lets you explore it.
I don't really see a reason for comparison. They are very different, the only similarity I see is that they'll both be AAA titles & they both have Sci Fi elements. I'm looking forward to Halo 3 for it's 4player co-op with my XBL friends, but Mass Effect is my favorite game hands down for 2007... with Bioshock & Halo 3 fighting for 2nd & 3rd place. Halo 3 will outsell everything, but Mass Effect is going to be incredible. Bioware Rulez. =)
maybe mass effect will out halo halo 3 but what if halo turns around and out mass effects mass effect?
article is bogus speculation mass effect is no more like halo than eternal sonata is to heavenly sword.
Who cares? Why not just play both games and shut up?
I dont know about this comparison. But at times like this, I know it pays to be a 360 owner. When two great games like these are being compared over a single platform.
