Actiontrip reviews Mass Effect

Highs: Unbelievable emotional depth given to the appearance of characters, story, combat system, interesting moral dilemmas which finally transcend the most obvious choices between our notions of good and evil;

Lows: Side quests and their locales too generic, some bad voice acting, occasional bugs, Bioware's proprietary world doesn't appear imaginative and compelling enough, needed more cool "spells" later in the game.

Stability: A few odd bugs

Learning curve: Moderate

Final Score: 91 out of 100.
Editor's Choice Award (Mass Effect, Xbox 360) 9.1/10

developing concensus
suggests that texture pop-in and frame rate during action are the 2 biggest bugs so far, but outweighed by the positives. Hope that's the case... I have to wait for Christmas to find out. boo-hoo

If it already occurs in a system with 512MB unified memory, imagine what a console with 512MB split memory with workarounds would have...

Those things are just minor in total experience as far as I've read into it. Furthermore: some stuff might get patched along the way and get ironed out in no time.

hmm I am wondering if Unreal Engine 3 is the cause of a lot of the trouble. But then even KOTOR had technical problems(which did nothing against its awesomeness btw)
