"Mass Effect certainly has a few flaws, but it's easily the most enthralling space adventure that's ever been created for a video game platform. It honestly makes the Halo narrative look like amateur hour! Much of the credit goes to the writing staff that has created this stunning game world with nothing more than pure imagination. While Mass Effect isn't a revolutionary step for Bioware, it's certainly evolutionary. Combining the elements that made KOTOR so entertaining with a combat system that's much more accessible for the teeming masses of shooter fans, the end result is a highly successful experience that almost every type of gamer should absolutely love - it's already become one of my favorite games of all time! Mass Effect really does deserve to hit the top of the bestsellers list this holiday season and every Xbox 360 owner needs to check it out now, or they'll be missing out on one of the most amazing gaming experiences currently available on any system."
