I was very skeptical about this title...I was never the biggest fan of Bioware previous console titles (KOTOR, Jade Empire) so I wasn't exactly sure if this game would live up to it's hype...thankfully my hype was practically non-existent and my opinions were left wide open. From the moment you start creating your character, to the open cinematics...to the final cut-scene...you're completely pulled into a world that looks and plays excellent. The visuals and cut-scenes are very impressive...and your choices actually reflect the way the council and people react to you. The combat might be complained about but works really well...the controls are dead-on and I never had a single issue commanding my team or myself. The game might dip a bit on the framerate...I chose to remove the motion blur effect...but I highly recommend keeping the film grain on because it provides ton of atmosphere to the whole presentation. The story is probably the most interesting and engaging i've ever experienced in playing a videogame...I actually cared for my teammates and the choices I made. I am currently on my 2nd playthrough just because I enjoyed it sooo much...this time I'm making different choices and can already see the difference in transition to the overall plot. My only complaint is it ended too soon...otherwise it would have been a perfect 10. Everyone MUST play this game.
