    Oh-ho-ho, Mass Effect. What a delectible tidbit of intellectual property you turned out to be.

    Oh-ho-ho, Mass Effect. What a delectible tidbit of intellectual property you turned out to be. You may be much-rebuked by the gaming press for the simplicity of your combat system. You may present a w...

    Bioware does not dissapoint!!! Pick this up if you haven't already!!!

    Rated on April 08, 2008 by WikitClown

    This game is superb!!! I love how they've combined sci-fi with the rpg genre. Usually in an rpg you'd find a soilder, mage, dwarf, etc. but with this it's a whole new ball game. The character customiz...

    An incredible, addictive, dramatic, action-packed marvel!

    Rated on August 28, 2009 by SymonDezyn

    Mass Effect is one of those rare games that is difficult to place one genre label on. The character customization and dialogue wheel, leveling and plot twists based on your decisions make it an RPG......

    Well, okay, not entirely a piece of Gosa.

    Rated on August 30, 2009 by majestictypo

    Mass Effect is a very bland game. What sets it apart from others is its story. It has one of the BEST STORIES I've come across. That's about it though, the rest of Mass Effect is pretty weak. Co...

    One of the hardest games to get into!

    Rated on August 30, 2009 by devilgonnatempt

    I was told by a friend that Mass Effect had similarities to Halo. So I was pretty excited to play this. To be brutally honest, I was totally put-off and disinterested in the game as soon as I gained c...

    With appealing graphics and accessible gameplay, Mass Effect is like a thriving planet amidst a sea of barren worlds.

    Rated on August 31, 2009 by Allicrombie

    The sky's the limit in Mass Effect, literally, as you command the finest crew in the alliance fleet, on a mission to take down a deadly officer who's suddenly gone rogue. Entire star systems are a...

    Great storytelling and enjoyable characters make this game excellent. Bland side-quest can get tedious.

    In Mass Effect, you take the role of Commander Shepard and both Shepard himself, or herself, and the events that take place, are customizable to the players' tastes. The game is set in an incredibly w...
