Default Mass Effect - Review @ Game Over

June 12th, 2008, 10:26
85% is the score for Mass Effect at Game Over but despite the score, they certainly have some reservations:
Mass Effect is an interesting study in contrasts. Some parts of it strongly resemble some pretty darned terrific games, most notably KOTOR, in the way that it seamlessly blends a 3rd person shooter with a complex RPG model which gives characters real significant advancement paths without bogging down in dozens of fussy D&D-style stats. On the other hand there are some parts that just donít work at all, the cruddy driving portions being the most obvious standout. The results is at times great fun and somewhat annoying, because I think they had that rare videogame greatness within their grasp and it somehow just slipped away.
More information.

Yeah that sums it up quite well.
I do like Mass Effect, at least the main plot. But all those side 'quests' are annoying as is driving around in that stupid 'car' (it's more of an IFV, but it feels like a buggy).
