Mass Defect: Why Mass Effect falls short of its hype

By Dean Takahashi of the San Jose Mercury News
Friday, December 28th, 2007

"I've been a been anticipating Mass Effect ever since I saw the first demo of the game in Amsterdam at the X05 unveiling of the Xbox 360's first slate of games. This was the first next-generation game that I saw with the highest of ambitions: crossing the uncanny valley. The valley is the familiar problem of computer-generated images. The closer they approach reality, the more disturbing the images are, particularly human faces. By trying to do good human facial animation, the developers at BioWare endeavoured to make games as emotionally interesting and visually appealing as movies. As such, this game promised a big leap forward in cinematic storytelling and game play.

It delivered on the first, but not on the second. While the conversational system and facial animation is perhaps the best I've ever seen in a video game, the game play is maddeningly flawed. Call it Mass Defect." (Mass Effect, Xbox 360)

He doesn't like the combat
It is a role playing game. You level up your skill and weapons in RPGs. If you have ever played a RPG you know better than to fight a big boss when you are at a low level. Bioware has made almost every level available to explore, but that doesn't mean you will succeed on those levels.

I agree, the combat isn't a real shooter its still an RPG, they just make it look and feel like a shooter, which frankly i think makes it a lot more fun, theres nothing cooler then doing a massive throw, tossing 4 enemies back then you and your squad charging forward and turning them to green dust with your chemically induced shotgun!
killax3563  +   2969d ago
Not True....
In RPG's, the combat system is the glue that holds the game together. If the combat system sucks then the RPG sucks. Simple as that.

Because in an average-length RPG (15-20 hrs) a player is likely to fight well over 100 battles (very conservative estimate) thus the combat system (which will be used during all 100+ battles) better be good.

killax3563 Wrong
imo, in RPG's it's the story that keeps the game together. The gameplay and combat system with other elements just Tie in.

I've played RPGs with weak combat system butt he games still rocked because the STORY kept me going. Not how many different way to kill a monster. You level up anyways and you get stronger as you go.

Look at Final Fantasy 7, some didn't like the "materia combat sytem" but they still loved the game. none the less the Story was the sh$t.

If you look at RPG's the combat system is what most devs try to differentiate themselves from others. some are Ok, some takes time getting used to, but not everyone is gonna like a certain combat system. you will find gamers debating over combat systems, with so many different rpgs that do it differently.

If your an RPG gamer then you know what they are talking about.

I hated the combat at first too, then I started to actually think about what I was doing and realized it was actually quite good. Some people have issues with the thinking and just want to mindlessly shoot, thats not going to work. It is also critical to level up and set your team up with the correct equipment...this is not uncommon in RPGs.

@ killax3563
You are completely wrong. An action or shooter type of game is dependant on gameplay. For massive Role Playing Games, story & dialogue, i.e. interaction with other characters, is THE most important element in an RPG. Second would be the leveling up system or tree provided to track your experience & reward your choices in all those dialogues & story driven elements. Gameplay would be 3rd at best for an RPG, in fact, graphics could be as important as gameplay for this particular genre.


It also is easily a 30+ hour experience PER playthrough, with tons of replayability, excellent graphics & GOOD gameplay FOR AN RPG.

As an action RPG, Mass Effect is EXCEPTIONAL. An RPG will not have gameplay equivalent to the tight controls you would find in Bioshock. 35 hour games usually have a glitch or two, & Mass Effect is no exception.
Legion  +   2968d ago
The combat elements of Mass Effect are great. The reviewer has no idea what he is talking about.

He obviously has never played through the game properly. You can't treat it like a straight up shooter. You got team memebrs that you control. I have had little problem dealing with the fights that he was spending 3hrs on???? Holy crap he sucks...!!! He complains because he can't play worth crap, that is funny.

He gives himself away when he mentions the scene with the emotional choice that needs to be made between friends. If he has not even gotten there yet then he is at a very low level. And he wonders why he is having issues defeating guys (other than his lame... use the shotgun theory), that's like trying to attack a Balrog with a butter knife. He needs to find a new job.
GIJeff  +   2968d ago
FF7 was the best and is the best because:

1) Graphics were the best ever
2) Combat was perfect for the game
3) Emotion was in the game
4) The main badass wasnt too cheesy
5) And the story wasnt afraid to do things that upset people.

So yea, the story was great, but seriously, if the combat was too bad, i couldnt have sat through all 80 hours of my first play through.
Hatchetforce  +   2968d ago
Best story this generation? What is this, the only game you ever played? HALO3 tops it storywise. So does Heavenly Sword. Too many games beat the pants of this game's generic and predictable narrative.

He is harsh - I really enjoyed this and didn't find it too difficult.

But it was flawed, and its only right that some people will point out the obvious problems with an otehrwise brilliant game. Most will choose to overlook the issues, but for some it will be a show stopper.
Pain70  +   2969d ago
frame rate, loading at times got a little old, and assignments being somewhat the same sure as hell didn't take away anything for me. to be honest, i'm really not a rpg guy, but i was kind of sad after i finished this game. this turned into a 25 hr. nightly routine for me. i'm waiting for ME2!!! maybe i'll give Oblivion a shot. Great Game!
MK_Red  +   2968d ago
Agreed but let's not forget that many of great games are seriously flawed. The important thing is how the good parts overshadow the bad ones.

I find it stupid how people believe Oblivion was the best RPG in years even though it had more bugs, flaws and problems than most of recent RPGs like Mass Effect. Oblivion was buggy with many AI and quest issues (Remember the stupid Vampire one!?) along with lots of combat and other problems. It was also really simplified and console friendly compared to previous TES games and was seriously shallow compared to classic RPGs.
Yes people praised and worshipped it anc considered Oblivion worthy of hype. Now we have a much better and deeper RPG with superb classic dialogue tree, a huge huge original world with many interesting characters and a non-linear story.
People call it Mass Defect. Why? Because they don't like the combat. I think most of them haven't played an RPG in their lives.

Any real RPG fan should instantly spot the brilliance and sheer quality of Mass Effect. It's flawed but what game isn't?

"It delivered on the first, but not on the second. While the conversational system and facial animation is perhaps the best I’ve ever seen in a video game, the game play is maddeningly flawed. Call it Mass Defect."

-I stopped reading after that statement, sure I agree it had flaws but its still managed to be one of the best games I ever played, so "Mass Defect" its not, but maybe he rather Bioware just made a simple turned based jrpg or your avg shooter, people always yapping about devs doing something new, and when they do the same people complain like hell when devs do go the extra mile and make a game that raises the bar in so many aspects, the game could be 95% greatness but they only want to talk about the 5% they didn't like about it, sure I wish the game wasn't flawed at all, but I appreciate what Bioware accomplished and in the end, the flaws are waaaay outdone by the greatness, aaahh well lifes a b!tch.

They did not deliver on the conversation tree. Most choices make little to no difference in the story. Your team is preset and they are going to be with you regardless.

Try saving the game and then changing your choices drastically. All rivers flow to the sea apparently. KOTOR had a conversation where the choices of what you said made more of an impact than Mass Effect. No, the did not deliver on the conversation tree at all.

i got the game yesterday
i was umin and ah ing to get this game due to some negative reports.. then i thought what the heck i want it in my collection... i have had no big framrate issues as yet. the game feels fresh which is good ... some say its slow paced... yes it is but its ment to be.. the graphics are good.. the dialogue is the best ive ever seen soz heard lol... i would recommend this to a few of my mates but not all.. if you want a deep rpg this is a must if you want action cod 4 halo3 and bioshock spring to mind
athlon770  +   2969d ago
Thank you, I am also on the fence with this game. When I first heard of it, I thought "sweet, a mmorpg that I could get into", then I found out it was only going to be single player and was crushed. After reading about the frame rate issues (amongst other things) I have pretty much written this off and concentrated on picking up games for my PS3. But everytime I watch one of the trailers I downloaded, I just want to play the game. Your comment was the first to shed a good light on the game without bashing anything else...I guess I will use some of the Christmas money I received and pick M.E. up.

Thanks for being honest and have a safe New Years!

allforcalisto  +   2969d ago
for me the combat varies.

Its weird for me how he mentions that bit on feros. thats the exact part that i'm up to.

the halo thing shows he can't really get into it. Halo is halo. expecting that from a third person rpg/actioner like mass is silly.

sometimes the combat is really fun and engaging, other times i feel like there's no real point in customizing anything as most enemies go down after a few shotgun rounds. (that dude must of really sucked if his teammates kept dying that much against those weird asari.

so far i'm seeing myself giving it a solid 8, but in fairness to the game i'm only 6 or so hours in and i've a few sidequest here n there. there have been some really cool moments.

my crits:

- the mako is an abomination

- the dialogue and interaction with characters is a bit cold.

- unlike bioshock or halo i'm not thrilled during combat and cutscenes(ingame cutscenes in the case of bioshock. or just the random wailing of the splicers.).
Kick The Ass  +   2969d ago
He says that he wants the actual gameplay to be more like Halo?

Halo is great, yeah, but FPS in a roleplay game?

This guy is ridiculous.
I've played the game, and my first impression is VRY GOOD YA!
InMyOpinion  +   2969d ago
All games have their flaws, this is what's called nit-picking.

If you compare it to say Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, it's nowhere near as flawed. I don't get why people love to hate Mass Effect so much? Maybe because it's in fact really really good and they are jealous?

Mass EFFECT is one of the best games that I have ever played.
I will not get into detail here because this game does all the talking for it self. But I hated RPG's before MASS EFFECT. This game can be misunderstood as just an action shooter like FEAR or a tactical shooter like GRAW. I have found that less experienced gamers are the people who poorly misjudge this game.

This game is an RPG and a well crafted story that I enjoyed just as much as the BIO SHOCK story and had fun like I was playing Mega Man2 when I was 7 or 8. This article is proof that some people choose to take a negative approach to positive things to get attention.

I love you HaterZ!!!

Mass Effect is the most brilliant new title out on the market this year and Only on Xbox 360, already selling over a million copies, more than nearly every single PS3 game ever released.

Only Xbox 360 provides brilliant new IPs such as Mass Effect which truly get gamers excited, unlike Unwanted and Borehawk which both flopped critically and financially

As an RPG fan I found everything in this title to my liking, including the combat. My soldier is well over Level 50 now and the combat system works fantastic

Ah Zhuk. It's this type of blind fanboyism that makes it such a delight to read the comments on this site.

I love Mass Effect too, but to deny it's many flaws just makes you look a bit... well, silly really. It seems to me you are happy to paper over the flaws in any game which is 360 exclusive. How sad that you are missing out on some great gaming experiences on 'other' consoles because of your staunch (and vaguely worrying) love of a particular inanimate electrical device.

It's tragically impressive how you manage have a dig at the PS3 regardless of the original story.

Perhaps you have a future in politics.

This moron is the first person to decry long as it isn't a 360 game. This thread is full of dirtbag hypocrites that are just like him. They will attack games on other platforms for issues that, when they appear in Mass Effect suddenly do not affect the game whatsoever. Hypocrites the lot of them.

What is good for the goose is good for the gander so take your medicine and welcome to the world of not living up to the hype. Framerates, pop in issues that are worse than Halo 2, idiotic AI...I mean really stupid AI, a vehicle (the Mako) apparently meant as an industrial egg scrambler - Bioware deserves a special 'Worst vehicle physics ever' award for that abortion, a conversation tree that really isn't all that (try saving the game and making different choices when talking and see if it matters - no) and the game is an elevator simulator.

He shouldn't have reviewed this game.
And the reason why is because he missed the part where Mass Effect is an RPG not a FPS.

BioWare never inteded this game to play like Halo because Halo is a FPS with zero RPG elements whatsoever. Halo is a great game due to the fact that it was built from the ground up to be the best FPS that Bungie could create.

BioWare designed Mass Effect as an RPG from the ground up. People who buy this game thinking they are buying a Halo RPG, are going to be sadly mistaken.

If you ever played KOTOR, then you know what type of experience you are in store for. BioWare has done a great job of taking the old stale "turn-based" RPG gameplay element and created a more intense "on the fly" gameplay element for the RPG. Yes, at times it can be frustrating, but welcome to the world of RPG's. There is a ton of trial and error when it comes to RPG battle.

It's not uncommon in an RPG to have to re-do a battle numerous times before you figure out the right combinations or direction. And even when you finally defeat the boss or battle, most of your party has probably parrished and you are left on the brink of death. Again, welcome to the world of RPG's!

Another thing that I don't understand is that supposedly this guy has been "on top" of Mass Effect's development from the beginning. Yet, he seems to have no idea that Mass Effect was an RPG. You didn't need to play the game to see that IMO.

Obviously this guy has never played a BioWare game in his life. I think a required pre-requisite of reviewing this game should have been to play at least one other BioWare style RPG. And then make a judgement.

Instead he sounds like a moron because it's obvious that he was looking to play a FPS shooter. Not a RPG.

Your review fails!

The only thing I'll agree with is that the framerate is pretty bad. You do get used to it after a little while but it is very noticeable.

Oh, and the Mako is a nightmare to control at times. There was the part in Noveria (the snow planet) where you literally had to dodge multiple rockets while trying to shoot and control the mako a the same time. I died numerous times due to the Mako controls.

This no-name guy... Dean needs to learn how to grow up and play a game.

RPGs have been a long time favorite of mine since I started playing video games. Oblivion is still currently my favorite 360 game, but ME is looking to knock it to 2nd.

It's an RPG first and foremost; it requires making the right decisions, not only in battle, but in conversation, and more importantly where your characters (and your squads) level-up points go.

I've only been playing the game for 2 days, but I've enjoyed every minute it of it. There are some minor frame rate drops, but nothing significant. The Eden Prime (tutorial) was a steep learning curve for the combat system. You have to have a good team (requires thought), good upgrades (requires thought), and skill to battle in ME. Using your talents, and those of your squad make the combat so much easier. Having a tech, a soldier, and a biotic as a squad is a great way to take down the enemy in battle.

I'm guessing that... Dean... hasn't used his brain much. You can't just go mindless through hallways and corridors in ME like you can in a shooter. Shooters are designed to be quick on the trigger, use flanking maneuvers and raw firepower. ME is not a shooter, it's an RPG; a game requiring thought, tactical superiority, and diversity.

I'm a Halo freak through and through. Halo is an FPS though. That's what it's designed for, and that's how it plays. Saying that ME should have Halo 3 gameplay doesn't make sense. This guy really has to be a total idiot to think that you can toss FPS style gameplay mechanics in a full out RPG...

Fuk this guy. I've been loving every second of this game, and am glad that all the "terrible problems" with framerate and texture pop-in have been WAY overblown imo. Even the dreaded "elevator loads" at least usually offer up important character dialogue or news reports. (If you don't like the elevaor rides just use the Citadel Mass transit, duh).

As for the combat, once you figure out this is NOT GEARS or HALO you're fine. So far the story is great and very well developed.

If he has such a huge beef with the combat then he should go play Resistance, Gears, Crysis or any other FPS out there.

ME is a GREAT GAME, and it has at least 2 MORE INSTALLMENTS to iron out the remaining bugs. Can't wait to get home and play some more.

learn to play this genre of game dumby everyone else (that matters) has stated. It's not a shoot em up. Eden Prime was the hardest level for me cuz I had to break outta the shooter-mode. The combat system was strange at first but by about half way thru EP I was good to go... took me half way thru the game to find that cannon for the Maco on the bumper button though. Thresher Maws woulda been way easier if I wouldn't have machine gunned em to death forever.

... but this guy should start with some "RPG's" that are more like Orcs and Elves.


... the only criticism I really have is the repetition of the bases you infiltrate on the "assignments" Same layout, same furniture, same enemies. Would have liked to see a little more variety in the environments asside from the mind-numbing mountain crawling for minerals parts.

I def. think Mass Effect is flawed, but this reviewer seems pretty stupid. I mean, one of my complaints is that it's too darn easy! The Asari clones took me maybe three tries the first time, just because I had no biotics protection, but if you just tell your teammates not to rush in they don't die that much--and I did't even give them many upgrades. I haven't had any battle in Mass Effect that I would really consider a challenge. Most of the enemies die really easy, and when you get a little bit into the game it's easy to purcahse super weapons. The battle system sucks, but it sure isn't hard. I speak as a person who's very experienced with both American and Japanese RPGs, and I think Mass Effect is a bit overrated. In addition to the weak combat, the side missions lack the thrill and originality of Fallout, for example. But no one can argue that the main storyline dialogue isn't amazing.

well ive never played it but it is an rpg.
I saw a video and thought the shooting was kinda cool considering what I remember from knights of the old republic. am I correct when i say that it is a rpg that doesent completly revolve around turn based combat. If so it sounds like a cool idea to me. seems like this guy was expecting this game to be gears of war in space or something. Im still looking foward to playing this regardless of what some newspaper guy says. Oh yeah and you above are right if you think this reviewer is an idiot. Is this game ever in first person, besides mabe sniping. I mean ive never played it but all the shooting ive see has been from 3rd person. once again people who have no idea about video games are reviewing them.

I am happy that I am the only one that...thinks this game is................
OVERRATED..................... .................

Personally I guess I am a game snob...But a game that has been in development for so long can be so Blahhhhhhhhhhhhhh......

--I like sci-fi but Mass Effect did nothing for me but bore me to death...I felt to combat was totally lacking.....if you are going to implement shooting mechanics into your RPG please make it enjoyable...

--I believe that a good combat system does help or hinders a RPG..And after playing games like COD4,Folklore,Bioshock,and Uncharted..... My exceptions for this game was thru the roof..

--This game was as much as a let down to me as LAIR was for PS3........

--This game could of been so much better so much more engaging......

--I may be one of the few rebels that really do not like this game....

--I do not think it deserves game of the year at all......

--Game of the year should excel in Gameplay,graphics,sound,design and production value....ME does not reach or exceeds all of these categories.

--Game of the year should be:
or Mario Galaxy(I did not play this do not have a Wii but I will make an educated guess and insist that MG is a great game.)

--Uncharted, COD4 and Bioshock are all great polish games with very very limited flaws... Mario Galaxy(I have not played but I will presume its will be the same)

--P.S. bring on the disagrees..........I am ready.....its only my opinion %)

He compared it to Halo, what a douche. Mass Effect is the most replayable game out there and the best bioware has ever done, which is no small feat considering they made baldurs gate, jade empire and kotor.
