+ A very narrative centered game filled with decisions which impact the way your character is perceived and how the world develops around you.
+ Lots of dialogue explaining the background and plot of the title, so you become immersed in the story.
+ Interesting array of weapons, with modifications which can increase weapon stability, damage, heat absorption and more.
+ Mass Effect combines RPG and shooter elements to make an interesting action packed game. Level up your party by gaining experience from quests, killing enemies or decrypting locked cases. You can spend talent points to upgrade your skills in firearms, combat armour, health, electronics and more.
- For an RPG it isn't the longest game, taking around 45-60 hours to finish. I explored a lot of the galaxies and the main questline is sort of short. I didn't see everything the game had to offer but for the most part I did.
- Graphics are really dated for a game released in 2008. In comparison, the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion which hit the market in 2006, looks far superior. Nevertheless, you'll get used to it the more you play.
- Inventory system isn't streamlined and a bit clunky, room for improvement here.
Overall Score: 8/10
There's something about Mass Effect that makes it a really intriguing RPG. It's approach is fresh, it stands out from the standard medieval style RPG's due to its futurisitc sci-fi outlook. Well worth picking this one up on sale.
