Mass Effect - Interview @ Team Xbox
Dr Greg Zeschuk talks to Team Xbox as the release of Mass Effect nears:
Okay, be as modest as you want…where does Mass Effect fit in amid the Halo 3s and the Call of Dutys…?
Greg Zeschuk: I think we compete extremely well with everything this fall. We know what we’ve got…we’re very proud of it. I think the biggest thing about Mass Effect that’s really going to shine through is it’s very different from anything that anybody has ever played. There’s never been a game made like this. This is the first time this has actually been achieved—the breadth of the universe and the galaxy, and the detail of interaction between characters. I think the market tends to reward uniqueness, the newness, the “differentness”—particularly when it’s done well.
I think that’s the other side of the coin. We’ve finished the game a couple of times—Ray [Muzyka, BioWare co-founder/CEO] and I both played—and we know it’s good. I think that the trick to it is, let’s get it done and get it done right, polish it off and go from there.
