As a fan of both bioware's Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire, I had extremely high expectations for Mass Effect, their latest RPG for the console. Although skeptical at first, I found that it surpassed either of the latter two games, and achieved something no other RPG had on the console.

Mass Effect revamps every aspect of bioware's typical games, improving it vastly, without changing their unique gameplay style. Rather then duplicating Knights of the Old Republic again, bioware has decided to branch off in a unique and interesting direction. The result of this is a game that will surely stand the test of time through the ages, being for the Xbox 360 what Morrowind was for the Xbox or Zelda for the Nintendo.

The combat system is probably the greatest change, taking away any codified system, and allowing it to become a third person shooter. This allows a lot more skill to develop over the course of the game; the AI is quite good, and you'll have to think about tactics. On any difficulty aside from easy you will probably die a lot getting the hang of it, but once you are accustomed, it is much more rewarding than any of the previous games systems. The weapon variation is a bit lacking, but this is balanced out by the biotics system, similar to force powers in KoTOR. However, rather than having good and evil powers, a character specializing in them has access to all of them. I found that the leveling system in relation to these powers was very well thought out, and improvements made were very obvious upon combat.

The class you choose, whether it be exclusively weapons, powers or mechanics, or a mix of two is very important in deciding the balance between weapons and powers you will be using.

BioWare is no stranger to success. They have successfully tackled Star Wars, one of the biggest franchises in existence, and turned it into an overnight sensation with their Knights Of The Old Republic series. After a string of hits, it was time to depart into new territory. The result is Mass Effect, a groundbreaking new adventure series.

BioWare missteps many pitfalls with Mass Effect, aiming it squarely at a mature audience with a taste for open ended storytelling and sprawling adventure. The game is vast in scale, encompassing a galaxy filled with multiple star systems and many exotic locales. The game's tale centers around Commander Shepard, an elite soldier with an impressive track record who is groomed from the start to become a SPECTRE, essentially the galaxy's version of a Black Operative. The player assumes the role of Shepard and immediately encounters a principle villain in the game: Saren, who has amassed a deadly army of cybernetic creatures called the Geth to attack the galaxy's seat of government. But there is a sinister force behind Saren's actions which has awoken from untold millennium to rake a path of destruction against all life in the galaxy. As Shepard, the player must take command of an elite Alliance ship called the Normandy, and track down a short list of individuals with special skills to combat the threat.

On PC, Mass Effect is obviously gorgeous, easily outshining its X-Box counterpart thanks to higher resolutions. The art style is very distinct and always manages to avoid the trap of mimicking past pop culture designs. Locales are brilliantly thought out and very detailed, but not all are perfect.

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 the final'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.

this was the first rpg i played on the xbox 360. i chose it primarily because of the low pricing (since it's been out for a while now) and because of the very high ratings that virtually all the critics have awarded it. this game is a throwback to the old "choose your own adventure" books that i used to read in elementary school. the storyline is interesting and the dialogue can get pretty entertaining. these days you can buy this game for less than $20 and the replay value is fairly high, in my opinion. i've replayed the game a few times on different difficulty levels using different classes and exploring different dialogue and mission choices each time. in terms of a bang-for-your-buck value, this game is fantastic. i would recommend it for every xbox 360 gamer's collection.
