    I never knew weak combat can screw a game over so badly.

    Long before this game announcement, I spent countless hours playing Bioware's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. That game was amazing. The story was perfect, the voice acting was unbelievably good, and the combat ... Read Full Review

    The sequel should be amazing

    There are definitely some key points that need to be improved upon. The combat, I think, would be greatly enhanced by using a 1st person perspective, this would make the game much more atmospheric whilst in combat, wh... Read Full Review

    Bioware and Rpg's have always seemed to go hand in hand. But what has resulted from this jump to action rpg's. Evolution

    Simply put, Mass Effect can be summarized by one word. Evolution. Everything in Mass Effect is of such high quality that anything that would seem remotely familiar is produced with a level of polish so high that you'll ... Read Full Review

    A ground breaking action RPG with fantastic replay value and enthralling setting.

    Christmas two years ago I lost a lot of trust in the gaming press. It seemed trendy to hype Super Mario Galaxy and Orange Box shining moments in gaming history, while being disappointed with Assassin's Creed and Mass Eff... Read Full Review

    Great game.

    This review is going to be fairly short as I've already reviewed this game for the pc. The 360 version of Mass Effect is virtually identical to it's pc counterpart with a few technical exceptions. The 360 version is just... Read Full Review

    Mass Effect is an Action RPG at It's finest.

    I only got my Xbox 360 in December 2008, so unfortunately I wasn't around to see the initial release of earlier games such as Mass Effect. Instead I came across a friend playing this game and I had heard great reviews. I... Read Full Review
