"Despite its wasted potential, Mass Effect really is an awesome game, with an extraordinary narrative and memorable characters, striking - if occasionally glitchy - visuals, and passable combat. It's only the brilliance of the game that makes its flaws so apparent, and nothing can change the fact that game developer BioWare has produced one of the finest sci-fi role-playing games of all time. If BioWare can fix the problems and keep the essence intact, Mass Effect 2 - a trilogy, at least, is planned - will be an instant classic."
