Unbeleivable

This game is unbeleivable. From the graphics to the gameplay to the conversations. This game should win game of the year.When you start playing you will notice the camera angle is almost exactly like Gears Of War.I personally like that better because you can see the graphic body structure. The gameply is very good and you can fully custimize the weapons. The storyline is good but it could be so much better. The biotic powers you have really help you in gameplay. After playing this game I give it a 10

Game of the Year Material Despite some Flaws.

I have been thoroughly impressed with this game, but I had been expecting to. Gameplay, Control, Story, Graphics, Sound. All are exceptionally impressive. However, due to the limitations of solely utilizing the game disc, there are some graphical hiccups, in terms of popup textures and somewhat long load times.

From what I know this is due to making sure all 360 users, those with and without a HD, would be able to play. Honestly I would prefer an option to utilize the hard drive so those of us who have a hard drive can be saved some of these problems. Otherwise, the AI can sometimes be a bit flakey, and the Thresher Maw bits just seem a bit tedious and annoying for comfort, due to the relative cheapness of the creature and encounters with it.

But all in all, I recommend any gamer pick this up. The story and universe alone are worth the price. Just know that if you dont like alot of text and story, then your not gonna like this game...and yeah.

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.
