This game rightly deserves its top reviews and as usual Bioware havent dissapointed its fans.
Ive been a fan of Bioware since their early games when they were signed with Interplay(who are nomore).
Few people ask how this game merit's full marks but they do and as a true gamer like many that have already reviewed this game i would like to point out to the ones that are saying its just a straight forward thrid person shooter.
Gears Of War(3-5 hours to complete).
Mass Effect games(30+ hours to complete).
To be fair my first playthrough took me 60hrs and 37mns to complete but thats only because i wasnt rushing it and i was uncovering every part of Biowares beautiful game and taking in everything it has to offer and appreciating the effort that the developers put into their game,really admiring the graphics and also searching for abnomalies on planets and investigating.
Imagine if Epic and other developers took notes from Bioware,our games like Gears Of War and other straight forward shooters could be mixed up a little,give players choice in the universe and generally mix up the game a little,making our experiences more fruitful would be a huge step in the right direction.
Giving the player choice is where game experiences should be going and thankfully its adirection Bioware have never strayed from.If it wasnt for their D&D games and Baldurs Gate,and especially KOTOR where choice became a major factor in their games i wouldnt be a fan today.
Now we just gotta wait for Mass Effect 3,please dont rush it Bioware,take your time and please keep working on dlc for ME2.
And maybe in the future sometime we could have the new KOTOR released on 360 and hopefully a Jade Empire sequel.
Amazing game and no other game out their except the original comes close to being as good.No other games on 360 compare to the experience you'll have on the Mass Effect games.
