OXM UK: "Have Mass Effect's role-playing subsystems and tropes been crushed beneath the accumulated weight of guns and frag grenades? Let's discuss."
Imagine a turn-based Mass Effect... /shudder
both I hope, thats what makes it great its a hybrid RPG, much like Shenmue and Deus Ex, and for me they are better than traditional rpg's
I think Mass Effect has the potential of offering the perfect console MMO world. With interesting settings and character races it would pull a lot of people in. All it would need is balancing of the abilities and gun/player customization and I would be sold.
....they're aiming to beat Gears 3 and Uncharted 3....Shooter I say.
Mass Effect is a 3rd person cover based shooter with light role playing elements.
REDDead/CRZY I agree completely. Bio went from Mass 1 a wholly RPG game with some shooter in it that WASNT super bad and turned the IP into a Shooter first RPG second. I have no idea why they NEED to go after gears/UC/KZ/Halo/COD fanbase when they have a dedicated consumer base already with the first game. Ask any person any hardcore Mass Effect 1 fan what he thinks of Mass2 ....no doubt they will say its to much of a shooter now. Not to say thats bad and Mass2 still got good praises but Bio has lost sense of direction for this game.
I really like 1 and 2. 2 narrowly wins it for me BUT only because of the places you visit and the people you meet. I will say that ME2 is the best Action...............RPG I have ever played.
Its become too much of a shooter.
