The bizarre collision of these elements creates an experience unlike any other, which at the end feels like the perfect Sci-fi RPG. However, minor flaws concerning the presentation and mostly unnecessary secondary nuances and details make this...

I've long since resigned myself to the fact that I'll probably never travel to another planet, never make friends with a cool alien being and never have my own robot servant. It used to keep my up at night, sweating my way through nightmares...

With Mass Effect, it is immediately apparent from the start of the game that Bioware, while very skilled developers, aren’t very original. Before Mass Effect, Bioware had worked on the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (Kotor) games, and had...

Epic plot and an intruiging mix of RPG and FPS make Mass Effect worth a look, though we cant help but see some similarity with Knights of the Old Republic....

Mass Effect is an addictive, original, sci-fi action RPG that really delivers a fantastic story that any sci-fi or RPG fan can appreciate. The PC version has fixed a few bumps and glitches that were present in the 360 version, and although it needs a...

Mass Effect is very much a Star Trek game under another guise. Its you, as the gruff-yet-heroic starship captain, and your mixed-species crew of companions, against an evil force that threatens the entire universe. Its an age-old formula, but it...

Fans of Star Wars and Star Trek finally have a role-playing game that’s worthy of their love. Mass Effect takes the most compelling themes and ideas of both franchises and mind-melds them into one of the best science fiction games we’ve ever...

Remember Mass Effect? You should – it only came out last year, and it was really bloody good. A sci-fi RPG from the talented chaps at BioWare, it was released on the 360 to critical acclaim, and went on to sell a boatload of copies. It...

Ever since games started to muscle in on cinemas territory there has been one omission that has reduced the emotional impact the player experiences once the credits begin to roll. All too often a game will exert itself trying to emulate the look,...

Thanks to the stepmotherly treatment PC gaming’s been receiving of late, PC gamers didn’t get a crack at BioWare’s sizzling hot RPG last year – it was exclusive to the Xbox360. If you’re one of them and...

Mass Effect is an action role-playing game (RPG) developed by the same team that created the highly acclaimed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. You play as Commander Shepherd, a bright young space marine upon whose shoulders rests a rather heavy...

BioWare has redefined the way we think and play role-playing games with titles including Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire. Mass Effect, however, is BioWare’s ultimate masterpiece with completely new universe that is at least at par...

Mass Effect illustrates just how much the BioWare crew loves '70s-era sci-fi. The clean, white color scheme adorning the walls of the curve/archway-heavy Citadel Presidium (a sort of intergalactic U.N. building) makes the place look like an...

EAIntroduction Theres been a lot of hype surrounding the release of Mass Effect; when it first saw release on XBOX360, it was hailed as redefining the role-playing game genre and one of the greatest role-playing games of our time. With that in mind,...

This review has been long, but I haven’t told all about Mass Effect. It’s just too vast to tell. I haven’t told about MediGel, Omni Tools, the Frogger-style mini game during a decryption, getting extra credits from finding mines on...

When Mass Effect was released gamers rejoiced, as the brilliant minds at BioWare had pushed out a title that satisfied almost every western-RPG lover in the industry. We were given a ship, a crew, and a mission that took place all within the vastness...

The game is just as gorgeous and highly detailed but higher end computers can squeeze a few more sparkling gems from the galactic nebula. The huge difference surrounds the texture popping issue; scenes of Mass Effect on the console would often...
