Geek.com reviews Mass Effect on December 3, 2007:
"I initially had my reservations about Mass Effect, because while I thought the videos looked pretty, everything felt like it was ripped off from Star Wars... Bioware's effort, however, completely blew me away; this action RPG is in a league of its own and has squeaked past Bioshock (see our review) as my choice for Game of the Year."
"All told, Mass Effect is simply stunning. I had initially thought that any of Bioshock, Halo 3, Call of Duty 4, Assassin's Creed, or The Orange Box (see our previous review for each) would be far superior to Mass Effect. I'm so glad I was wrong. Adult gamers, this is a must-have, and it's beating a crowded field as the best game this year. I award it my third ever Geek Pick and suggest that any adult with an Xbox 360 go out and immediately purchase it."
