Mass Effect: Gamespy Review, Perfect Score - 'outstanding'

Mass Effect's greatest strength is the quality of the narrative. BioWare has a track record of producing amazingly engrossing storylines, but never before have you been presented with this level of meaningful interaction. You'll experience difficult and thought-provoking situations, including moral and ethical questions without a clear right or wrong answer. The Commander Shepard character is thus defined by player involvement, sublimely capturing the essence of role-playing. (Mass Effect, Xbox 360) 5/5

There we go. Another great score, 100%

This year is insane for the 360
remix  +   2527d ago
okay its official. this game is overrated and 10's are being thrown around to easy now
first off, NO GAME DESERVES A 10.

but espicially with all the technical issues it has.
CONSTANT framerate issues
poor squad AI
POOR ENEMY AI (DONT DO ANYTHING SOMETIMES
TEXTURE POP UPS
AND SOMETIMES YOUR GUN WONT EVEN SHOOT.

REVIEWERS NOW DAYS ARE TRASH.

DONT GET ME WRONG, I THINK MASS EFFECT LOOKS GREAT BUT CLEARLY A 10 OUT OF 10 IS OVERRATING. EVEN THE 10 OUT OF 10'S UNCHARTED GOT IS OVERRATED BECAUSE OF SOME MINOR TEXURE POP INS.

@OOGFUNK. if no one cared, you wouldnt have replyed dumbass.

and clearly people do care since i got some agrees.
dumbasses these days

remix,
I remember last week you made a post about no longer being a fanboy and rabid hater of the 360. You said that your were hotshot127 (something like that) and said that those days were over. I was glad to hear it but did you have another change of heart again? Did you decide to go back to your old ways? This was like a week ago and you still have one bubble so I assume you have started making anti 360 comments again.

Come on brother, its time to come to Jesus. (ok sorry about the last sentence. I just thought that would be hillarious if I put that in there. I am definately not a Jesus Freak. Hate those f@ckers)

THE CONS
dont justify this games high marks, if a ps3 exclusive had the cons that were highlighted in this review it would have got a 7 maybe an 8, theres alot of fishy smells around reviews at the moment! which i think all gamers no matter what console you own are starting to realise.

the cons from a few reviews are terrible but regardless an high mark follows?

probably not
it would have probably also have gotten a 10, the game is great and those small glitches do not take from the game. Some game's the problems are far more foreboding and glaring.
kenjix  +   2527d ago
Yeah I posted the same issue after hearing about the cons over at 1up and you're right if this game were on any other console it would an 8 at best. Look at how some sites gave assasins creed for the PS3 a lower score because they said it had framerate issues, but this game can side step that and AI and loading issues?

Yeah it's becoming more apparent how these reviewers work, but I guess I can't complain, been playing Uncharted all weekend and that game doesn't suffer from anything except erasing the line between Cutscene and Gameplay and creating amazing A.I..
Capt CHAOS  +   2527d ago
Yes but..
The framerate issue would have been much, much worse on the PS3

@ Xi

They clearly stated on the last page tht there were some significant bugs, obviously you only look at the headline, or else you would have spotted that.

It would help if you actually read the review you troll since its out of 5 in the first place as in 5 stars...and in the end its the reviewers point of view hell if you wanna make your own reviews go make a site and post your comments and realize no one cares what you say as well

Agreed. Great reviews. Hope other reviewers understand the meaning of a great RPG that "Redefines the role-playing game" (From review), unlike idiot attention seekers... cough* Eurogamer* cough...

I can barely
wait until tomorrow.
Wii60_FTW  +   2526d ago
it's a shame they had to use UE3. that engine is crap nowadays. every game which uses it has shader pop-in and general framerate issues... bring on ID Tech 5...
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   2526d ago
Frequent loading delays; AI squad members could be smarter; side quests lack impact of main story.

umm I know for a fact that the AI and Loading times are more then enough to lower score , more like at most 9.8 or 9.5 but definitely not 10.

"While there aren't a very great many different alien species inhabiting..." -- amazing grammar there.

"It's not always a utopian future, however, as some SIGNIFICANT bugs found their way into the final release of Mass Effect. We were able to reproduce a glitch during one boss fight that completely impeded our progress, making it impossible to proceed unless we reloaded and tried a completely different approach."

It also seems like glitches and bugs are not cons either now.

Great game but definitely not 10 worthy.
