8.8 'Mass Effect' One of Best Sci-Fi Games Ever

Matt Slagle writes, "Video games like "Mass Effect" don't come around too often, and good thing: This new science fiction epic is so good it's basically sucking away all of my free time."

"There's a ton of dialogue here, and it's all well-done and relatively interesting by video-game standards."

"Mass Effect battles are what it would be like if you could play chess, Dungeons and Dragons and rock-paper-scissors at the same time."

"There are many role-playing elements, which is cool because you can really tweak Shepard and your computer-controlled companions for the many missions. Planning, strategy and skill-point allocation far outweigh fast reflexes, that's for sure."

"The graphics are superb on the Xbox 360, with some of the most realistic-looking aliens around, if that makes any sense."

"The dialogue sequences are shot like big-budget movies and feature some wondrous backdrops such as sprawling space stations and seedy, dimly lit bars."

"With games like this lasting for weeks and weeks, why even bother with commercial-filled televised space dramas you can't control?"
