I am maybe 25 hours deep into the game and it is truly amazing. A very deep RPG with tons of dialogue options and side quests that will have you going all over the place. There are tons of different "planets" to go to for certain missions or even uncharted ones full of crashed ships and such just waiting to be explored. Story: 10/10 The story is very deep and involving allowing you to choose many options which will chaneg the story completely. Sound: 10/10 Excellent voice acting and great talents such as Seth Green , Keith David and other recognizable voices can be heard throughout the game. Controls: 9/10 While I have no problems with the controls I can see how some people might have a problem with them but they are very smooth and easy to learn. Graphics: 10/10 A beautiful game all around with huge environments. Basically if you are looking for a long game to hold you over through the holiday season this is it. This game will last you a long time.

This game is awesome. It's short enough that you don't have to lose too many weeks of your life to it, and long enough to have a great storyline. The way your simple choices in dialogue determine the storyline is fantastic! And the characters are really believable. Controls were hard for me to get used to at first, but that's probably because it's the first game I've really gotten into on the 360. I've also never played any other games (the Star Wars ones) by this company, so I would have been utterly lost without the manual. So keep it close at hand! The graphics are pretty great! There's some slight slowdown at times, but never enough to impede gameplay. The only thing I took issue with is that in some cinematics, the textures wouldn't fully load until a few seconds into the scene, so you'd see blobby characters and blocky environments. Overall, one of the best games I've ever played. I bought it with a Christmas gift card and I'm so glad I did! I recommend Mass Effect highly!

I rarely play games more than once. I am on my second go at Mass Effect and plan on a couple more! I had high expectations for this game and was not disappointed in the least. Graphics are beautiful ( Although slow to load at first ) Gameplay is tight ( AI tends to be sketchy at times. ) Story is great! It gives you just the right amount of satisfaction yet leaves you wanting for more. There is even some love triangle bits to the story, which adds to the mix very nicely. Customization is vast and the open galaxy exploration is almost a second game to itself. Perplexed over the too realistic long elevator trips. (Elevator music included) Might be necessary for load times but aggravating nonetheless. Do yourself a favor and grab this game!!

Mass Effect is really a unique game in that it incorporates elements of a RPG and a Shooter- you will not find another game like it. You will feel as if your in some sort of sci-fi movie. Character models are stunning, and the story is 10/10 if you really get into it. Graphics wise, things up close look very good, but for some reason the back-ground scenery has this grainy-look all the time. You could easily spend 100’s of hours in this game if you chose to do all the side quests. Having said that, Mass Effect has its fair share of faults. One of the biggest of which is frame-rate: the game struggles at a few different frame rates. The main-mission planets are quite extensive and there is a lot to see, but all the side-quest planets are pretty much the same. My main complaint is that after about 50 hours of playing the game, you get bored with it because you are pretty much doing the same thing over and over. Though you do have the option to create a different class-character, which adds replay value. Over all, it’s a good game and you won’t be disappointed.

What's to like: -immersive and epic story -lifelike characters with detailed skin textures and facial animations -expansive explorable galaxy -multiple outcomes to a multitude of quests -fun, fast, and furious combat third-person shooter style -outstanding voice acting with several recognizable voices -detailed character customization: choose gender, appearance, and class -upgradable weapons, armor, and equipment -the choice to be naughty or nice What's not to like: -after loading an area, the textures take several seconds to appear -long, slow elevator rides -managing your inventory can be a headache -compatriots AI is sketchy, they like shooting walls What else: -dialogue heavy, a lot of conversation. this adds to the immersiveness of the game but if you have an itchy trigger finger, you may find this annoying

Excellent "action" RPG

Genre: Sci-Fi "Action" RPG From the start this game has been engrossing. The character customization was limited, but I enjoyed that aspect. I got to add a few interesting personal characteristics and created a character that I would enjoy playing. The game allows you to "choose your own path" when doing side quests but is fairly linear when following the main story line. I believe you could breeze through the main story in 10 to 15 hours, but you could double that time by doing side quests along the way. I've been trying to do every side quest available so that I can level up and get more details about the universe that I'm playing in. The game plays in a third-person perspective and the battles are fought in real-time versus turned based. You can guide two other characters (out of six or so in your party) when you go on quests. The achievments are tied in with the game cohesevily and also entice you to play more than one time through. Overall this is a high quality game that I look forward to playing so that I can continue the story, but also because it's just very entertaining.

Nobody, not even the geniuses behind Final Fantasy, can craft an RPG like Bioware. This game is one of the few in which you actually play a role, rather than watch cutscenes in which the role is played for you. In just about every interaction, you the player get to decide what your character thinks, says, and does. The universe of Mass Effect is totally original, and more fully fleshed out than just about any other RPG world. It's so well made that you're actually interested in side details that tend to be boring or tedious in other games. It's full of awesome characters that are almost never cookie-cutter archetypes. It does a very good job of engaging you with the characters in your party, and thus makes some of the decisions you have to make about them painfully difficult. Combat gameplay is not perfect but still entertaining. It blends third-person Gears of War shooting with its RPG special ability trees, but balance is tilted toward the latter because NPCs tend to shoot at walls. The quest and plot structure are classic Bioware, meaning you'll frequently find yourself surprised by plot twists and go through each story a different way each time. The game is appropriate for mature teens. It's not bloody or profane. The M rating mainly stems from one... ahem... love scene (that CAN be avoided) and the player's ability to make Machiavellian decisions with the characters in the game.

This game is easily one of the best on the 360. Great graphics, gameplay, an awesome storyline, and amazingly real charactors round out an awesome gaming experience. I do have to say that this game can be a little intense and mature at times in both story and gameplay, so buy it for someone older and not a young kid. If you are mature enough, it is worth the cash spent.

Major Let Down

Customer review by ZeGermans

3.0 stars 1/26/2008 by ZeGermans

I am one who reads video game magazines and looks foreward to the relase of up and coming, very anticipated videogames. Mass Effect had huge hype going for it months before its relase. I am convinced the developers studio, BioWare, makes excellent games, such as the Knights of the Old Republic franchise and Jade Empire. But when i got Mass Effect, I was a little underwhelmed at first. Thinking that i might get more into the game i played it for about a total of 15 hours. I made it about half way through the game and figured, I just truly didnt enjoy playing it. The battle system feels dry, leveling is kinda werid and i really cant get into the story. Dont get me wrong, the game looks amazing, but its not enought to keep me playing the mediocre monstrosity that is Mass Effect
