Mass Effect Review by Video Game Talk

VGT's Mike Flacy reviews and scores Mass Effect. His conclusion:

"Mass Effect certainly has flaws, but it's easily the most enthralling space adventure that's ever been created for a video game platform. It honestly makes the Halo narrative look like amateur hour. Much of the credit goes to a writing staff that incredibly created this world with nothing more than pure imagination. While Mass Effect isn't a revolutionary step for Bioware, it's certainly evolutionary. Combining the elements that made KOTOR so entertaining with a combat system that's much more accessible to the teeming masses of shooter fans will make for a highly successful combination on the Xbox 360. I can't imagine anyone being without a copy of Mass Effect this holiday season."

Another game on the 360 that tops all your games. Man, regretting that purchase yet, well I guess there's no need to ask, of course you are.

TheMART3989d ago

Ah you silly sad PS3 fangirl... Let's view the console exclusive games of the PS3 and the 360 that released the last few months (on Gamerankins)


Uncharted - 87% (and dropping)

Ratchet & Clank - 89% (and dropping)

Heavenly Sword - 81%

Lair - 56%


Bioshock - 95%

Halo 3 - 93%

Mass Effect - 92% (and that one will only go up because of one review that was total off out of only 5 given yet)

And don't forget those other 360 exclusives on or over 90% that the PS3 has NONE of (only 2 multiplatforms like Oblivion and COD4)

Gears of War - 94%
GRAW - 91%
Forza 2 - 90%
PGR3 - 90%
COD 2 - 90%

Ah well a Sony fangirl can only dream about having EIGHT console exclusive games on or over 90% average when they have none, nada of it themselves.

Expect the PS3 fanboys to turn their attention on 360 games to comfort themselfs about their own games short commings.

I could care less about a review.
Mass effect= boring star track geek game
bioshock= good lighting but crap graphics
Halo= liner crap 640p BS
Gears=old and dark with nothing on screen
360= broken down crap that will go down in history as one of Microsofts last mistakes before they went out of biz.

This game looks boring.

STFU u tool.... I HAVE A 360 AND I THINK MASS EFFECT LOOKS LIKE A BORING PIECE OF SH!T. I don't troll either my friend, Mass effect really REALLY looks boring to me. If it doesn't to you that's awesome man... love it up! LOL You guys are MORONS... I'M NOT A FANBOY I DON'T EVEN HAVE MY PS3 YET... I'M JUST NOT A IDIOT. I beat Bioschok OVERRATEDAS HELL!!!! Gamertag: get shank d.... I don't give a DAMN what u think .... I hope u like it. I won't be giving it a try. UNCANNY VALLEY. UNCANNEY VALLEY. BORING AS HELL GAMEPLAY. Yea I'm getting a PS3 but I've only played my roomates and I do really like it... thats not really the reason I'm not getting Mass Effect I could. I don't want it. I will be trying out Uncharted though. XD

i'm not a fanboys fvcking idiots I JUST DON'T THINK MASS EFFECT LOOKS GOOD!!! God stop being so definsive not everyone wants to play shatty Sci Fi games!! I'm not 16 anymore! I don't like Halo either... and I used to be an AVID Halo fan. I get the feeling Halo has lost alot of fans beacuse of Halo 3 though. My firends think its really gay. I liked gears and Bioshock was cool for 3 days. 360 isn't that great fanboys. You can keep saying it is but I HAVE ONE FVCKING LOSERS. aND IT HAS GOT THE RED RINGS TWICE. i'M A MORON FOR LISTENING TO U LOSERS AND BUYING IT OVER A PS3.... IT CAN'T DO ANYTHING THE PS3 CAN... And next year this will become MUCH more obvious... and the next year and the next year. You will lose. I'm sorry Xbox just isnt a Playstation and never will be. Nintendo is better too.

JokesOnYou3989d ago

is that the best you can do, why not the usual long winded hate filled rant? oh, I guess you're getting tired of making a fool of yourself, ME is awesome, nothing you can say will change that=


bootsielon3989d ago

You also make plenty of hate filled rants against PS3. So you're just like Harry, except Harry at least admits he is a fanboy.


Awesome - another excellent review. The only real negative is some framerate problems experienced in large scale battles, the only real negative mentioned about gameplay. Funny, no other reviewer has mentioned this. Everything else was very positive - the story, the graphics... can't wait for Tuesday !!!



bootsielon3989d ago

Says the guy that had lame ps3 usernames. Supposedly.
