Videogamer Give Mass Effect: 10/10 "Mass Effect is my game of the year."

Mass Effect is the most beautiful dice roll you never saw. It is an illusion, a picture perfect disguise, one that makes the foundations upon which role playing games are built - statistics, levelling up, character development - dissolve in an HD gust of wind.

Because of this Mass Effect transcends its genre - a genre that began with a notepad, pen and dice all those years ago - and fully deserves its rightful place in the pantheon of science-fiction entertainment. (Mass Effect, Xbox 360)

another perfect score for this amazing game, where is MK, he would love all these reviews
MK_Red  +   2707d ago
I'm with you my friend :)
Indeed a great score.
10/10 = a superb score that ME deserves. A game doesn't have to be perfect to be a 10/10 and super awesome.

Bioware has always been the pinnacle when comes to Western RPGs. So it's not a big surprise to see Mass Effect score this well.

It's going to be hard to wait an extra month so I can play this gem without having to worry about work.
the worst  +   2707d ago
yeah right
yeah right

Why come they do not talk about the bugs and issues in the game?
I know this game is still good...but it does not deserve a perfect score of 10.0...
bumnut  +   2707d ago
no game is perfect, but maybe there are not many bugs and with the size of the game, the reviewers missed them.

remember, a review is just an opinion
BIoodmask  +   2707d ago
to hear that the game is living up to the hype. It has been a long time since an innovative RPG like Mass Effect has come out.

Props to Bioware for taking risks and trying to create something totally new.
predator  +   2707d ago
agree, just like naughty dog, gone with soming new, and created somthing amazing.
TheMART  +   2707d ago
They'll just keep coming those 90% + reviews. A few dropped out only below. The average score will go up though from 92% to where will it end...
Douchebaggery  +   2707d ago
quick question
does the fact that a game meta score is in the 90s make more enjoyable than if it was in the 80s?
wolfehound22  +   2707d ago
Not sure but I'm thinking old marty works for metacritic or one of these other sites, because thats practically all he talks about. I feel as long as a game score 70 to 75 and above at the very least rent the damn thing first. I guess marty has only played a few games in his life and he must pray day and night for the 360 games to be ranked 90 or above so he can come in here and say so. Just like he was praying that ratchet was belowe 90 the day it happened he posted that it was no longer AAA that it dropped to 89.7 on gamerankings. Talk about childish. Get a life little man play the games you like wether they are 9+ or not.

Like I said
Mass Effect has a high chance of getting Game Of The Year.
remix  +   2707d ago
does anybody know how to delete a dang account ????????????
god i hate this site sometimes with all these stupid ass fanboys.
OOG FunK  +   2707d ago
meh I say the 10 is justified if the person says its their game of the year...hell what else would it be to them a 8....if the reviewer thinks its his goty then game deserve a 10 in his eyes
x440Magnumx  +   2707d ago
Agreed, there were so many good games so far this year that the best one undoubtably earns a 10. None of the games that earned a lot of 10s were perfect, but if this is better than those, it really deserves one.

So it just varies from person to person. Which is how reviews work. :-P
mighty_douche  +   2707d ago
with a horde of glitches and issues.....?

imagine they bothered with QA, 11/10.

good news for RPG fans!
goodganja44  +   2707d ago
I imagine these glitches will be fixed once the PS3 port comes out.

13-15h an RPG
where 1/3 of time you have to talk.. yeah, indeed the game of the year.
Maybe BOOK of the year?
i mean, 13h for an RPG is a nonsense.
ONLY on x360.

Though, as far as i can see, Mass effect should be a good "game", but definetely not the GOTY.
13h for an RPG, come on people, since when it`s ok?
mesh1  +   2707d ago
as i said there a lot of next gen kids on thsi site parading liek they have a clue even some senior members u know who u are that started playing games when the ps3 and 360 was released hahah thsi guys comment comfirms it +) its s 50hr game btw
MK_Red  +   2707d ago
Did you know that game is non-linear in many parts and takes different time depending on each of ending? And oh yeah, it has multiple endings.

As for dialogue, did you know that BioWare made the dialogue heavy Baldur's Gate which is considered by many as the best RPG of all time? Dialogue is part of classic RPGs that were forgetten. Just check the list of top 5 RPGs of all time and games like Fallout 1&2, Planescape Torment and Baldur's Gate 2 all have same or more lines of dialogue. Seriously, most people on this site have never played RPG's outside the realm of Diablo and Oblivion and while they're great, they're far from the classics that Black Isle, BioWare and others made back in 90s.

What about MMORPG's?
What about MMORPG's? Thats not 13hours those are Years of RPG gaming losing and changing jobs, forgetting about your family and friends. But no thats ok for you... oh sorry you are a Neewbi.
fredy  +   2707d ago
Well they don't know
They don't care to know

Fanboys too busy begging for PS3 games to get 9+ scored,and comping up with Conspiracy theories with MS and Peter Moore in the center of it all.

You know bioware deserves a lot of credit. Looking at there past history, I can't see how you hate on this game.
Double-Edged  +   2707d ago
PS3 fanboys have grown bitter about 360 exclusives.
Maybe because they have no real official exclusive AAA+ games themselves.

Mass Effect: the scores just keep tea baggin
krazee  +   2707d ago
another FPS.... very unique...
RadientFlux  +   2707d ago
Mass Effect is as much an FPS as Uncharted is.
MK_Red  +   2707d ago
Did you know that ME is a classic RPG? I think you haven't even seen a single screen from the game and yet bash it.

Good one RadientFlux :)
I think ME is much an FPS as The Eye of Judgement and Super Mario Galaxy are...
XLiveGamer  +   2707d ago
ITS the "Game of the Year" like it or not you Halo3 or COD4 Fans. I like Halo3, i like COD4 & i like Bioshock but this game its too much. If you never played a RPG game start with this one, its the best RPG experience so far. Its like... NO WORDS just try it.
MK_Red  +   2707d ago
Well, it's definitly GOTY worthy IMO but I have to disagree with ME being THE GOTY.
I absolutly believe BioShock deserves to be GOTY.
M1am1U  +   2707d ago
I hear you MK_Red...
but I'm going to have to reserve judgement until I really get to play ME for a bit. They're so different. BioShock was a masterpiece, but if there is a game that can match it, I think ME can. I can't wait until tomorrow so I can start saving the universe. 8)
Contra26  +   2707d ago
sucks to be a PS3fanboy right now
wolfehound22  +   2707d ago
No i'm pretty happy I enjoy my system and do not feel the need to come on here and have to justify my purchase to myself every five seconds and diminish someone elses choice. Good for you you guys have some wonderful games I hope to get a 360 for bioshock and ME. But there is not one day a regret my purchase. Fanboys of all systems grow up and just have fun.
joydestroy  +   2707d ago
i dunno about a perfect score, but i think it deserves at least a 9.
this one's gonna be an xmas present.
