Product Description

A Spectacular New Vision of the Future

The galaxy is trapped in an endless cycle of extinction. Every 50,000 years, an ancient machine race invades the galaxy. With ruthless efficiency, the machines wipe out all advanced organic civilization. They leave behind only the scattered ruins of technology, destroying all evidence of their own existence.

Few believe this ancient legend. You, however, know it to be true. The fight to stop this extinction event has become the most important mission in the galaxy.

"You must act without remorse, without hesitation, and outside the limits of the law."

It is your mission. As Commander Shepard of the SS Normandy, you will take your elite recon squad across a galaxy in turmoil, in a desperate race to stop the return of an enemy without mercy. To stop this enemy, you must act without remorse, without hesitation, and outside the limits of the law. Your only imperative is to preserve the safety of civilized life in the galaxy - at any cost. You must become the tip of the spear of humanity, for you alone know the full extent of what is at stake if you should fail.

Science-fiction Role-playing: Perfected

Mass Effect allows you to create your own customizable version of Commander Shepard (or jump in and use the pre-created character) and plunge yourself into the center of an epic science-fiction story. Choose your squad-mates, your weapons, skills and abilities, and customize your vehicles, armor and appearance - you are in complete control over your experience.

In the course of your mission to stop the machine invasion, you may choose to follow the path of the soldier, the tech-specialist, or the biotics-specialist…each of which brings an arsenal of unique yet equally powerful abilities to use against the enemy. Wield a multitude of weapon types with precision accuracy…utilize your technical skill to turn enemy war ma

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing 27 Aug 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a new 360 owner at the beggining of this year my games library was very limited. After browsing this game caught my attention and after seeing the low price, I decided to pick up the game not fully aware of what to expect.

My initial impressions were bad. The enviroment of the starting level was bland and the RPG elements were limited (at first). The game does not have a full tutorial and it took a while to grasp the controls (though you can avoid this by reading the manual). Also, the game does not autosave enough! Save before and after any challenging fights unless you want to repeat them over and over again.

After finding *the object*, the player is then taken to a galactic station known as the citadel. This is when the game starts to show merit, freedom to tackle things your way and a non-linear approach to missions. After I had completed the *task* given to me, the universe opened up and Mass Effect truly began.

My advice to new players is to stick with it. Initially the game is bland, but after about an hour (depending on player skill)the player is given their freedom to explore the galaxy and shape their character the way they see fit.

This game posseses an epic sci-fi story, memorable characters and plenty of moral choices. The main quest is around 8-12 hours long so full exploration and tackling the side quests is adviced to enhance your experience. The game has an excellent re-play appeal as choices made sometimes differ drastically and shape the world(s) around the player differently. I highly recommend this game to everyone, especially people interested in the sequel as choices made in this game affect the world in the sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like RPGs, don't miss Mass Effect 14 Jun 2010
By Philipp
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, what can I say? This game just has it all.
The story is dense and incredibly exciting and if you're a fan of hard Sci-Fi, you won't be able to put it down.
The sceneries can only be described as stunning. I probably spent almost as much time just exploring as I spent playing the actual story.
Finally, there's the voice acting and thankfully, it's done right for once. The voice actors are perfectly cast and capture the atmosphere perfectly.
As for the interface, it's surprisingly smooth. Even though the combat system is complex, mixing a lot of weapons and abilities, after a while you won't even notice the buttons you are pressing to make things happen.

The only gripe I can find with this game is the auto-save feature. At times, you will run past auto-save checkpoints every five minutes, at others, there won't be one for an hour's worth of gameplay. So save often...

A quick word about the bonus material: The Special Edition contains background information like developer interviews and concept art plus the complete soundtrack which is positively awesome. Also included is the extra chapter "Bring Down the Sky" which is also available as DLC. All in all well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Start 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
The start of a truly epic trilogy that every gamer should play at least once (though I advise you don't stop at once what with all the possibilities).

Many more RPG elements that were questionably removed for it's sequels that never the less polished other features. There has been a lot of shouting about the ending of the third game in the series but don't let that put you off if you've never experienced this game. You won't regret picking it up, trust me.

This Classics Edition also has an extra disk which has quite a large number of extras including one of the game's 2 single player story DLC's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic space opera that's well worth the price tag 10 April 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the first game of a now finished trilogy - if you've never played a Mass Effect game before, then here's where the story begins. You are Commander Shepard, a human war veteran who is called upon by the Alliance military to step forward as their candidate for the Spectres, an elite group of intergalactic speical forces who answer to the Council. I'll stop there with the story, because there's a huge amount of back-story and lore that I can't include here.

What I can say is that it's a sci-fi that has some of the feel of Star Wars and Star Trek without feeling like it borrows from either - it stands alone, and feels unique enough to be a new experience without being too mind-blowing. Although the whole story-arc isn't anything too surprising (hero saves the universe), the journey is what matters here, with the planets you visit and the alien species you encounter.

As a game, it's a tactical 3rd person shooter. It's not Gears of War, though its similar in its shooting style, but you have a variety of powers to use based on the class you pick at the beginning of the game. It's not as overtly violent but there's no shortage of combat. When you reach a new planet that you can explore you land in your tank-like vehicle and get to roam an alien world. These are generally barren worlds, with few landmarks, but it's worth exploring to find resources and long-lost artifacts. While these discoveries don't generally add anything new to your game, though they do give you experience and credits which in turn allow you to level-up and buy new equipment.

The few set pieces of the story often force you along linear paths, but its the parts of the game outside of those that I enjoy most - following various side-quests and exploring the sci-fi universe.
