Mass Effect - 13 hours in

Guardian UnLtd writes:

"This is hardcore. Mass Effect is out this Friday and 13 hours in I feel like I've barely scratched the surface. In the time it took me to finish Call of Duty 4 all I'd done is finish the tutorial, and pottered round the hub area chatting to the excellently depicted inhabitants. Thrill seekers will find the early stages slow going but then this probably isn't for them. The combat is more tactical than reflex, but Mass Effect is as much about the story as shooting. Anyway, the embargo lifts today but I haven't seen enough to do a review yet - so consider this first impressions."

"Mass Effect is an adult game and not because of the sex scene. It demands more of you than just sharp reflexes and if you let it suck you in then you may just be glimpsing one strand of the future of gaming." (Mass Effect, Xbox 360) -

My Gamestop...
Is opening at 11:00 tonight to start selling it at Midnight. They're giving an extra 20% on trade-ins towards the game as well. I guess I won't be getting much sleep tonight. ;-)
The only problem is my inlaws are coming Wednesday for Thanksgiving and that will dramatically cut into my gaming time.

waldopepper  +   2687d ago
...and todays 'Didn't read the article and even totally misunderstood the title' award goes to: tholgar. It's not a 15 hour game. From the article, after 13 hours he's barely played most of the game:

"13 hours in I feel like I've barely scratched the surface. In the time it took me to finish Call of Duty 4 all I'd done is finish the tutorial, and pottered round the hub area chatting to the excellently depicted inhabitants."

it has written AAA killer app/system seller all over it. Mass Effect another big hit. Bioshock, Halo 3, Mass Effect all over 90%, and mostly to end over 95% in the end.

hmmm....
2 hours of fun....
11 hours of conversation....

i know alot of you guys cant wait for this and thats fair if its your sort of thing. me personally theres nothing more i hate from games than hour after hour of pre-determined conversations.

douche
nothing more I hate then haters hating on a game & genre, they donot have an inch of interest in. even if you let us know on every single mass effect thread. we get the point, not your type of game or your friends for that matter.

Of course everything you play is always better then what you don't like, makes sense don't it.

do you also know there are plenty of decisions you make throughout the game that will bring you to a different outcome & ending?

if you want a game without much of a deep story and decision making then stick to sports games. This game will appeal to a lot of PC gamers and with bioware track record, it will sell very well.

i get your point.
i wasnt trying to hate on it, simply voicing my opinion, maybe im wrong but isnt that the point of comments? am i only allowed to comment if its praise or simulating me licking the area between Bill's thigh's?
monkey602  +   2687d ago
I want to get M.E. when it released but because I'm rather poor at the moment it looks like i'll be getting this and Uncharted for Christmas. I didnt want to wait that long :(
CrazzyMan  +   2687d ago
so, 13-15h is enough for RPG now?
now i am really confused.

and uncharted, which has ~12h gameplay is not even RPG.
Mass effect ofcourse is a good game, but come on 13h for an RPG??? And just to think, that half a year ago, people were happy, that game will fit in 1 DVD.. yeah, it fitted, but at what cost.

HAHAHA. FF= 200 hours disgaea=400 hours

and this is not an rpg.

360 has to giv up graphics for length
Sam Fisher  +   2687d ago

waldopepper  +   2687d ago
Just stop, take a deep breath and actually read the snippet above.

Actually just read the title of the page you're looking at: "13 hours in". In does not mean finished.

"13 hours in I feel like I've barely scratched the surface. In the time it took me to finish Call of Duty 4 all I'd done is finish the tutorial, and pottered round the hub area chatting to the excellently depicted inhabitants."

So just to re-cap if there's anyone else that hasn't understood, the game isn't 13 hours long, this reviewer is 13 hours into it and he has barely played most of the game.
