2.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely dreadful game!, 9 Dec 2007
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mass Effect (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I bought this in great anticipation of a great sci-fi RPG/FPS, and boy was I dissapointed! - I really do wonder about the sort of people who have given this game positive reviews - have they never played Half-Life, Gears of War, Bioshock etc? I admire the attempt to try to bring a new dimension to this type of game, but the execution of it is very poor. The graphics here are clunky and jerky, the controls are irritating beyond belief, the shooting action is just woefully bad, and just as you are starting to get into it, along comes a cut-scene with a load of terible acting and stupid story lines which just get in the way. The scenery and environment are like something from a PS1 games in 1996.
I'd put this game in the same category as that rubbish Lost Planet thing. Avoid!

what game were you playing? No offence but it sounds as though you wouldnt know your arse from your elbow! Half-life, Gears of war and Bio-shock aren't RPG's in anysense of the word so to compare Mass Effect to them is a pretty dumb thing to do. Maybe you should stay away from RPGs as they all have " stupid story lines which just get in the way ". For everyone else, if you enjoyed games like knights of the old republic you wont go wrong with this game. All the so called faults soon pale once you start to get into the game and running this game on an Elite through a 42" 1080p TV looks amazing.
