Mass Effect Review: Geek.com's Early Pick for "Game of the Year"

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."

He obviously has not played Super Mario Galaxy.

Dont get me wrong Mario probably deserves to be GOTY, just as much as any other contender, but maybe he's like me and he's not really into Mario or pretty much anything else on the wii, its not hate but maybe its just not his thing, which means he just finds ME alot more interesting than Mario Galaxy, and thus GOTY(in his opinion).

was an excellent game, and is definatly in my top 5 games of the year, but my personal favourite game of the year is....PORTAL.

Portal was original, refreshing and had a superb engaging story and humourous computer that babbled all sorts of crap whilst you play. Plus you get to meet your Companion Cube! Loved it!

Mario Galaxy is also in my top 5, superb game, but personally I prefered Mass Effect to Mario.

Mass Effect looks totally amazing, played great and has the best voice acting in any game I've played this year.

1. Portal
2. Mass Effect
3. Mario Galaxy

Biggest Disapointment of the year? Assassin's Creed for me!

I dont understand why Halo 3 should be game of the year... It's a good game and all, but it's not great except for it's online....

razer3102d ago (Edited 3102d ago )

but I will agree. It just didn't do enough for me to consider it a GOTY pick.

My list of contenders would be.

Bioshock
Call of Duty 4
Uncharted Drakes Fortune
Mass Effect
