Mass Effect must be the most perfect Sci-fi series ever made in history, i dare to said that's even greater than Star Wars. The history it's brilliant, it's a bit complicated but once you get it, you are in the Mass Effect galaxy and you probably want come out of there till you finish the trilogy.

I wasn't sure what to expect about Mass Effect at first. But all i heard about was that it's a great game. I didn't buy the game until last year, i bought the trilogy pack. The first of the three, Mass Effect 1, was incredibly, besides the old graphics and the 10000 bugs the game have, the story, the music, the characters, makes a really good game.

The genius behind this game, make perfectly done at first, they knew it was gonna be a trilogy, so when you finish the first game you could export your character to Mass Effect 2, and when you finish Mass Effect 2 you do the same for Mass Effect 3. This is perfect, cause every action you make, makes repercussions in the other games as well. So if you make a decision in the first Mass Effect, it will affect Mass Effect 2 and 3, this make you doubt at every moment while you play.

Mass Effect 2 (My favorite), it's more powerful than Mass Effect 1 in every aspect, the graphics are better, the story, the characters, the Normandy, it's definitely a "Must have" in your collection. I don't want to say anything more of, just, you are gonna be surprise. Play this game, you want regret at all.
