They must think so considering they gave it a 40/40

of games to get when I get a 360. Fable 2 is supposedly awesome so I'll be picking that up as well. Hopefully EA considers some sort of collectors edition when/if they release Mass Effect 2 on the PS3 that includes the fist game. Every time I have money for a 360, Sony releases more games!

Same score as Haze? Much lower than The Last Remnant? Famitsu reviews are meaningless? Hmm...

ZuperAmazingCooKie3815d ago

I wonder what this means to them considering it is as good as Haze and worse than The Last Remnant.

I don't know what it means, perhaps that despite the limitations in both Mass Effect and The Last Remnant that they're good games? With The Last Remnant being rated higher because it's a Japanese game, much like ME got higher rated in the west because it's a WRPG?

I could certainly see that. I enjoyed both ME and TLR despite their shared flaws.

EDIT: Although ME is certainly better than TLR.

Yea.. Mass Effect is great, in my opinion.
Fable 2 is a good game, as well.

Darn you Sony! >.< Haha.

I'm guessing it was the combat that hurt the overall game a bit. Japan doesn't cream over shooters like we do.

great game overall, some serious flaws that detracted from the overall experience - elevator points, pop-in of pretty much every texture and also a kind of non-emotional, robotic feel to all of the characters, sex scenes were a gimmick too.

cant wait for mass effect 2 ONLY ON 360

"...and also a kind of non-emotional, robotic feel to all of the characters..."

The game is really good from what I've played so far but it does have a lot of technical problems. Unfortunately, I installed it onto my drive yesterday and it didn't really seem to fix anything. That was a bummer. I hope the next one fixes the issues.

I know this is probably really picky, but the facial animations made it that way for me. I mean even in the sex scenes, where was the pleasure in the woman aliens eyes? ;)

No Way3815d ago (Edited 3815d ago )

I would agree to most of that..
Although, I don't really think they detracted from the game. o.O
Not for me, at least..

But, I don't agree with the "non-emotional, robotic feel to all of the characters."

I guess it matters who you played through the game with? Wrex just had the "whatever" kind of attitude. But, the characters all react differently to certain points and events in the game. Garrus and Ashley are prolly the ones with the biggest emotional pull on the game, from what I've seen and experienced.

Iuno, I guess we just saw things differently.
