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

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!

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.

I was quite late to the world of Mass Effect and wrongly wrote it off when I was presented an opportunity to play it back in 2008. I watched a mate play it and after an hour, it looked boring and soul destroying. Go here, talk to this person, run around aimless for a bit, shoot some robots and run around some more whilst driving around in a big tank every so often. However for that hour, I remember how my friend had not said a single word or even moved his gaze from the screen. He took in every detail that was happening, would listen to every possible piece of dialogue and took great pleasure in tweaking his characters appearance. It all seemed too long winded.

I finally got round to playing Mass Effect in September 2011 and have only just finished it in March 2012. It is such an absorbing game and addictive to play, you will find you are sucked in to this galactic community and won't want to leave. 6 months may seem a long time but hear me out...

Mankind has joined a galactic community of varying races after the discovery of alien artefacts on Mars. This lead to the discovery of Mass Relays, the galaxy's highway, that connected to different systems and planets. You play as Shepherd, and begin your first mission investigating a Human Colony that has been attacked by an unknown enemy. As the game progresses, you unlock clues to the purpose of this attack and those responsible for it. You build relationships and conversations with people you meet through your travels and unlock extra missions depending on your conversation choices. You choose to be good (Paragon) or bad (Renegade) depending on how you prefer to play, but your actions will have repercussions on Mass Effect 2 and will require you to make tough decisions so choose wisely.
