Mass Effect - Impressions @ Shacknews

by Dhruin, 2008-05-14 09:36:13

Shacknews has some brief impressions of Mass Effect PC:

Sure, Mass Effect certainly looks great on the PC, but veterans and newcomers alike ought to be most interested in how it plays. Utilizing familiar FPS controls, the game allows you to pull up the tactical HUD by holding the space bar at any time, giving you access to every ability at your disposal—including those of your squadmates.

It may sound like a meager addition to an otherwise decent game, but for those of us who've spent more time with PC first-person shooters and RPGs than elsewhere, it's a massive change of pace to gameplay. Combat feels more immediate and closely connected to the game's flow, and—as you might expect—everything moves smoother with a mouse and keyboard on deck.

...plus VoodooExtreme has another huge video, with the 318Mb video running to 12 minutes this time (135Mb standard def).
