i expected a lot with all of the good reviews, and it was good, but it didnt quite have enough of the RPG or the shooter genre. it is glitchy, and cannot hold a solid framerate to save its life. its a good game non-the-less, but it could have been better. compelling story.

So i got this game and seeing it with many high expectations i found it to meet them all. This game is not comparable to Oblviion, not even close to two worlds, and is great. What i loved was fighting, it was gears of war style 3rd person, and had the RPG type gaining levels, skills, weapons, and armors. The idea of exploration of new planets was fun for a real long time, and the game keeps coming up with new quests for me to complete. Right from the start your character customization is superb, and flawless. Some people may complain about the talking, but in my opinion all the talking is great to understand the phenomenal storyline, and it produces a sense of realism with your character and your fighting squad. It does make the game slower, but RPG's are meant to take awhile and no rushing allowed, and this game follows those principles. the only cons i encountered was some long loading times, and some of the planets were frustratingly small and uninhabitable. besides that i strongly recomend it and hope this review helped you get this product ASAP! Peace out
MASS EFFECT in one word "AMAZING". Right now this game is the pinnacle of design, art and storytelling. Bioware has done a brilliant job of evolving the RPG genre. This game is truly everything that a next generation console game should be.
