Mass Effective Filled with Impressive Features and Innovations

Just as the novelty of Master Chief's exploits start to wane a bit, the Xbox 360 will receive its second must-have sci-fi epic of 2007 in the form of Mass Effect, the space-themed role-playing game from Edmonton-based BioWare Corp., due to hit stores Nov. 20.

Mass Effect allows you to play as either a male or female version of its spacefaring protagonist, the no-nonsense Commander Shepard. Up to this point, BioWare has only shown the default male version of Shepard, a buzzcut brute with a steely stare

At first, I was a bit unsure but lately I can safely say that it's another great game up for the Game Of The Year Award.

It's true that this game is looking quite good. Face it everybody. This game WILL be nominated for the award. If it doesn't win best game, it will most likely win best RPG. If you disagree, say an RPG that has been released this year thats better. There are none.

Edit: Disagree? NAME ONE.

And i bet my 360 that this game has some type of issue. Whether lag, disc scratching, skipping, etc. EVERY 360 game has atleast 1 issue.

In all honesty, I thought Lair was going to be the game that slaughters any games for two years the way it was hyped. All I could say to Factor 5 after that game is GTFO. That was a steaming peice of overhyped sh!t. Heavenly Sword? Very repetitive. Played the demo and pressed x the whole time. The only time I didn't was the for the times I was in active sequences so that people can't say all they needed for this game was one button. Thats all I needed. Killzone 2 better be good for the hype its getting thats all I'm saying.

this game is all talk no action
its a $60 movie
Heavenly Sword is better than bio shock
look at the colors it look so good
standard fps
lair is 5x better than two worlds

My opinion: I think that the reason this game has been pushed back so far is because of space constraints with the DVD. It doesn't look nearly as good as what they showed even a year ago, because of reduced textures and whatnot, which also screams space constraint to me. Because it's not a linear experience, you can't put it on multiple discs.

Also my opinion: The game looks great. There's been a lack of decent RPGs for a long while now, and I look forward to this game to fill the void. That said, I don't think it will be what the developers initially envisioned.

This game will be the best game on the 360 this year.

Alot of jealousy from the sony fanboys who just keep on pressing that lil disagree button. But the fact is that Bioware makes GREAT rpg's. And Mass Effect looks to be the best one yet. The graphics, the story, and the gameplay will make this my choice for game of the year.

"As one example of many, players will be faced with a situation that requires them to choose a crewmate to send on what's essentially a suicide mission.

As soon as we start to care about these characters -- and if BioWare does its job, we will -- these types of scenarios will give us pause, not just to strategize as game players but to feel as human beings."

MK_Red4133d ago

Agreed. I love games that require moral choices and so far, Mass Effect and The Witcher are the best 2007 RPGs with such elements.
Of course in 2008, all RPGs have to face of the big daddy of RPGs: Fallout 3.

ms knows halo3 was it, after that theer is almost nothing more.

so what does ms do? They overhype yet another game, expect them to overhype too human aswell.

fopums4133d ago

if anything its the other way around, M$ promotes Halo far too much and there other great titles suffer becuase of it.

ala Bioshock, I was with a friend helping him pick out a 360 *we settled on the H3 sku* and he asked me a game that he should pick out.

I said over and over BIOSHOCK, all he went on about was halo 3, and now he has Halo and world championship poker XP

he download's the demo and didnt get what it was about, tsk tsk tsk

Ahhhh4133d ago

I swear their are too many idiots on this damm site... M$ hasn't really hyped this game.. and if they are going to hype it like Halo 3.. well, itd be damm well worth being "over hyped." BioWare is amamzing at making RPGs and this will be by far the best.

Referring to 16.>And before you buy it green_ghost5,go buy yourself a brain cause you're seriously lacking.When it comes to the ps3,you have absolutely no clue what you are talking about.
