Did You Know?


If Urdnot Wrex is in Shepard's team and Shepard speaks to General Septimus in Chora's Den, Wrex makes the comment:"How did your kind ever defeat us?" to which Septimus replies "I may be drunk, Krogan, but you're ugly. And tomorrow I'll be sober." This is a reference to a phrase allegedly spoken by Sir Winston Churchill to Bessie Braddock when she accused him of being drunk. See more »

Not like Elder Scrolls IV, but better.
31 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I disagree with the previous post about this game being similar to Elder Scrolls IV. There was no glitchy combat system, no repetitive storyline of 'run in this thing and destroy it', and much unlike Oblivion Mass Effect has actual character development.

The voice acting in Mass Effect has one of the best casts I've seen in a game. Nothing is over exaggerated or monotone, and the character's movement goes along with that. Bioware has introduced another great game with a fantastic storyline as they did with KOTOR. The combat system takes some getting used to if you want to play on the hardest difficulty, but you can play the game like a 3rd person shooter if you have it on easy.

The only reasons I give this game a 9 out of 10 is because sometimes you can get stuck in the geometry of the game whether you are walking or more often when you are in the MAKO vehicle, and need to finagle your way out. Also while the character classes were varied the character customization left something to be desired in my opinion. All in all i found Mass Effect t be a very enjoyable game to play and found myself becoming immersed in the beautiful graphics and intense storyline. A definite must have for an role player who has Xbox 360.
