Worth buying/playing
I have 176 hours of game time in ME2 and still love playing it !!
Will ME give me even more feeling with the story, or should i just leave it and go for ME3 ?

from the games you play yes i think you'll like/love the game, it's not for everyone tho because it's more of a RPG than a TPS,
i think it's the best part of the trilogy and the story is so much better than the sequals

Well if this game is better then ME2 , i will buy it.

Thanks

i think it is but i prefer RPG's over shooters, some people will even say that ME2 is the best part of the series,the gameplay in 2 is far superior but i felt there was more magic in the 1st game,
and like i said because of the games you play i think that you will really like ME1

I love RPG's , as you can see in the games i play, i play a lot of RPG's
Ever since i played fallout 1 and 2 back in the '90 i got hooked on the genre
After playing The Elder Scrolls Morrowind (IMO the best of the whole series) i tought i would never play any other game genre again, of course i did play other games and that is a good thing, but i keep comming back to the RPG's simply because of the feeling of freedom i have in the games

ME2 gives me a real good feeling , but as you say there is even more magic in 1, it will probably catch me.
As long as i played me2 i always had the feeling i missed something, especialy after the small DLC that makes it possible to make the important choices of me1, when i do that it gives me the feeling i make the choices without knowing the story and have no feeling with the choices i make in that small DLC.
Downloading me1 right now and i think i will enjoy it.
Thanks for your opinion on this :)

well i've been playing games now since the zx spectrum back in the early 80's, my 1st RPG was legend of zelda on the SNES and i've been hooked ever since, i'll play almost any genre, RPG's being my fave followed closely by shooters, but i can tell you that Mass Effect 1 is my all time favourite game, i have more hours in ME1 than i do in ME2 and ME3 combined

anyway i really hope you enjoy it

Zx spectrum, i would have never tought seeing that commented on the steam forums, when i think about that time , gaming was something different then hahahaha.
After my Zx spectrum i went over to MSX and Commandor 64.

Loved Zelfda on the SNES, but my first RPG must have been "Barbarian" on my dads PC a 80268 , the game was ported from the c64 i believe, loading the complete game from a 5.25 floppy disk those where times 1.44MB for a complete game with different lvls :D

Nice to meet another OLD school gamer here.

Cheers !

The good old speccy. Many a fun evening playing Chuckie Egg or upgrading my 16k machine to 48k so I could play Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy. I even had a ZX81 before that. Nothing to be ashamed of. They were what got me hooked with computers (going to a c-64 after that). Those were terrific days. Thank god for emulators (get Spectaculator (.com) .. a brilliant speccy emulator that even emulates currah speech etc) :)

You may like it, but i often cant get past its bad points.

Its substandard for a top shelf title.

I'd highly recomend buying it, I'm in the process of replaying ME 1 so I can carry the character over to ME 2 with the outcomes I'd prefer.
Sith Olus Aug 18 @ 8:28am 
LOL, i see i'm not the only one who got into computers that way, i even remember the god awful sound they made while they loaded the cassette tape, i'm not sure about the floppy disk's tho because after the ZX 128k i think my next system was a SEGA master system with Alex the kid lol,

anyway how are you finding Mass Effect.....? any regrets or are you happy you brought it ?

The casette , loading for half an hour for 10 minutes of playing, making a type error in the game name .... we get spoiled nowadays :D

I love ME, a lot makes sence now in the story of 2, even small jokes and remarks make more sence now :D, like i expected graphics and some minor gameplay are not es good as in 2 , but the story and side missions make more then up to that.

Cheers !

Glad you like it. It is my favorite from the series also and I started playing ME2 and went back and played ME1.

Here is what I hear most people complaining about in ME1:
1: Inventory cluster ****! / For the most part I don't even look at what I get until either my inventory is full or I am between missions. It is pretty unlikely to get anything much better on a drop than what you have, unless you know that you have some deficient. Just sell it or gel it.
2: Elevators/ I find them a convenient time to get out of my chair and grab some food/drink etc.
3. The Mako/ I really don't understand this one. It takes less than a minute to drive between points on the map. Use the map and set your target location and drive. Some people make it sound like driving an ox cart from New York to Oregon.
4. The hacking/encription mini-games. Set the arrow in the 3:00 position and wait about 2 seconds and 75% of the time a gap opens up and you jump straight through. On the hard ones it takes a little jostling around.

Keep on posting. If you have any questions or thoughts, would love to here them.

Also it is worth the time and money to download the Bring down the Sky dlc since it is free and most people consider it to be better than the Pinnacle Station dlc which EA is still charging $5 for. I kind of like the Pinnacle Station, but I am pretty sure that I am in the 2% minority.

Ok, I retract my statement. I spoke without consideration for my own motivations to expand on my subjective experiance.

I would suggest waiting until the Winter sale though. It's the best story part of the trilogy but if you already that deep into 2, I would say go on to 3. Then do a new playthrough after that. You'd be retracting things and if you wanted the same character through all 3 games, you'll have to redo 2 with your new ME1 character.

Or you could do it out of order and get the save editor to combine the choices from the two characters into the one you send on to ME3.
Sith Olus Aug 19 @ 9:41am 
glad you like it, i would've been gutted if you didn't like it being that you brought the game on my word alone ;)
do what C2H5SH has mentioned with downloading Bring down the Sky DLC, it's free and it also gets a mention in ME3
