Mass Effect


Conceiving Commander Shepard

Mass Effect starts out with the usual character creation screen, leaving it up to you to pick main character Commander Shepard’s name, class, appearance and which may be one of my favorite features of the character creation, character background....

Mass Effect


Yep, I encountered some stuttering before conversations too, which skipped over that line of dialogue. I'm not sure what's causing it (hardware?), but I kept subtitles on too and it wasn't really a big deal. Post a Comment

There's no reason to miss out on a game as great as Mass Effect, and this PC port is a great example on why patience pays off for us PC-exclusive gamers.

Mass Effect


BioWare is undoubtedly one of the best developers that North America has to offer, having created such hits as NeverWinter Nights, Baldur's Gate, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Their first project on an original IP was their fantastic – if...

BioWare has created a top-shelf RPG with Mass Effect, though it's not without its flaws. Many of the issues present in the Xbox 360 version of the title are gone, and while there are new issues thrown into the PC version, they are minor in comparison....

Mass Effect (PC)


Games and gamers were once categorized into compact little genres with specialized fans. You played computer role-playing games -- stat-based dungeon hacking affairs where there was no time for talk, just turn-based action and numbers, lots and lots of...

Mass Effect PC Review


Legendary developers Bioware upset many PC gamers last year with the Xbox 360-only release of Mass Effect, their impressive action-RPG in an entirely new sci-fi universe. These are the guys that made the incredible Baldur's Gate series and brought many...

From beginning to end, Mass Effect is a powerful and highly entertaining game that mixes tactical action and a full-fledged RPG together in exciting ways. The universe that Bioware has created is intriguing, even if the level of storytelling isn't...

Mass Effect


BioWare's space opera comes to PC and is still one of the greatest role-playing games we've ever played.

Strong narrative; tons of galactic exploration; raises the bar for the role-playing genre

Mako handling is still wonky; questionable copy protection; side quests lack impact of main story

Mass Effect


Bioware crafts a sci-fi universe that's worth saving

Excellent story ; Energetic combat ; Huge galaxy to explore

Terrible inventory management ; Only one ending ; Mako controls are tricky

Mass Effect


One of the best Xbox 360 RPG titles we've played is Mass Effect from BioWare. Of course those who only play their RPG games on the PC have had to wait a fair bit longer to experience BioWare's latest offering but the wait has been worth it and the PC...

There can be no doubt that Mass Effect is an excellent game and a very promising start to what should be an excellent trilogy. Most of the technical issues that plagued the Xbox 360 version do seem to have been ironed out and thus the PC version is the...

Mass Effect


Often when a developer releases a game, they want the first thing you say when you start playing to be simple 'wow.' They want you to be wowed with the scope, with the music, with the graphics... they
