1PStart Review: Mass Effect

1PStart's JW finally got his hands on Mass Effect for the Xbox 360. After playing through it, to say he was slightly pleased would be a massive understatement.

"Not only is this the best product BioWare has released, but this ranks up there among the best role playing games ever. If you own an Xbox 360, then you have no excuse to not own Mass Effect. It's the best RPG on the market. It's one of the best shooters on the market. It's one of the best GAMES on the market. It's my pick for Game of the Year. It's just a hair short of absolute perfection, and I'm going to play some more right now."

Forget the [email protected]'s review, read the mothaf***ing comments at the bottom. Sums up the game nicely.

This game is great. You are off-topic and a troll..

367 To Your Ass3083d ago (Edited 3083d ago )

the graphics in this game are some of the best i've seen on the 360 besides gears and bioshock.

i started two new save files, one with the default male character (john shepard), and one with a female custom character.

there both given an extreme amount of detail for custom and default characters.

although i still like the default character (john shepard).
but in terms of default female character (jane shepard) i like yours better.

however it's a great thing they added custom characters, you can start the game over as many times you like with different looks, different futures, different choices, and different personal states in combat.

i am somewhat of a bioware fanboy, having loved all their rpgs, but, and forgive me if I am wrong, because I dont yet own a 360, how does a game that suffers MASSIVE framerate drops and texture loading get a 5/5? I am not hating on the game, because this might be the one that makes me get a 360. I have seen numerous ps3 reviews where points get deducted because of framerate issues, so why is it not the issue here? A legitimate question, please dont flame me, because I will openly admit this game looks AWESOME.

razer3083d ago

do not out-weigh the fun and epic qualities of this game. The only thing I can relate it to is Oblivion, which suffered some of the same issues but still had such engaging gameplay that it really didn't bother anyone. I'm about 15 hours into it and I am loving it.

Hmm because people exaggerate. Having played the game I can tell you that yes there are frame rates drops from time to times. Is it massive or game impeding? No not really.

As for why the PS3 gets it bad for frame rates. *shrug*
I assume that most people think it gets a 4/5 or whatever solely because of the frame rate and would refuse to admit that the gameplay itself is not worthy of a higher score. This in turn just makes other problems stand out more. Kind of like when a hot girl has a less than great personality you may be willing to overlook it for a while where as if she was only good looking, as opposed to hot, then that little personality flaw comes glaring out. But thats just an assumption.

Genuine3083d ago

Those "issues" aren't that big of a deal, they are more like minor annoyances. The game plays just fine.

@ mesh

I don't think I'm asking for much. Just a period now and then. Pretty please. For me. :)

razer3083d ago

The fact that you say ME, Gears and Halo are all the same games makes you look foolish. Is this really the intelligent level of the average PS3 owner?? I'm starting to think it is..

Did you run out of Blu-ray movies to watch?

Method3083d ago

The insecurity of PS3 fanboys on N4G is hilarious, eventually they will realize what a mistake it was spending $500 on a machine that only plays DVD's and an 8 hour tomb raider clone.
