Very Good

Great Game

I'm not a huge fan of RPGs but the more and more I play this game I really enjoy it. The level of detail in the story is amazing. For me it's like playing a movie except you get to interact with the dialog.

The graphics are very impressive but the frame rate can dip pretty low at times. Not unplayable but still annoying enough to notice. If you do decide to rent this game be prepared to face a lot of cut scenes and dialog, patience is a must!

The gameplay is pretty solid but the team AI can be pretty dumb at times. It's a bit difficult fighting the enemies at times but I imagine that the more you level up the easier it is because you'll have more weapons at your disposal. I would recommend this game to anyone. It's a nice break from the FPS and is a beautiful game.

I loved this game. It had great character customization and a decent amount of exploration. My only problem was that the main storyline was really short. Maybe it had to do with the fact that I played it on easy, but only three planets on the main story seemed a a little disappointing. I really hope when ME2 comes out you'll be able to pick up where you left off with your character.

Deep and engaging story. A great hybrid of shooter and RPG. Best Xbox title, probably since KOTOR. Surprise both were developed by Bioware. They simply "Get" how RPGs should be made.

There are minor "texture popping" issues. Know issue with Unreal Engine. Gameplay is awesome. I would recommend taking a couple vacation days from work for this one!
