I got this game a while ago but didn't really play it until recently. And I can now see why this game was rated so highly. The story is amazingly gripping once you lean about Saren and the reasons why he gets corrupted. On top of that the graphics are stunning! Not far from Crysis (which I own for the PC)
The combat system for an RPG is absolutely amazing, never expected it, cover system could have been better but works. The special attack system is well put together and works a treat. Brilliant game and really looking forward to ME2
My only bad points are when loading new zones, sometimes it doesn't load textures up that fast but after 10 seconds they're fine. Also it drops in FPS for brief moments in intense combat.
5/5, 4 of those are purely for the story. I've not completed it yet so the part I'm upto still has me gripped :)
The last star is for the good combat system.
