Mass Effect - PC Preview @ GameSpy

by Dhruin, 2008-02-21 21:22:01

A highly enthusiastic preview from GDC of the PC version of Mass Effect is up at GameSpy.  This opening paragraph sets the tone:

Though the studio is always pretty reticent about making announcements to the effect, we've come to learn that it's only a matter of time before BioWare's console games make their way to the PC. Taking this into account, it's borderline absurd how much Mass Effect seems to have improved by the simple platform transition. It's almost as if BioWare had designed the game for the PC first and retrofitted it to a joypad after the fact. The PC version really feels like it was built against a laundry list of the Xbox 360 game's interface-related shortcomings.

It might be worth noting that when they talk about "feel", they didn't actually play hands-on but watched a demo.  Still, sounds very positive.

Thanks, Prime Junta!
