People always seem to deal in extremes, best and worst. So it’s pretty much all the time that someone asks me what my favourite film, song, band, book, game, food, you name it is. It may be because I’m just so indecisive that I cannot decide and infact like a variety of things.
- Ask me for my favourite film and the list will include anything from Star Wars, Lord of the Rings to films like Ever After, About a boy, Human Traffic, Goodbye Lenin and anything in between.
- Ask me for my favourite music and I’ll tell you I listen to anything.
- Ask me for my favourite book and it’s books from Patricia Cornwell to Sophie Kinsella, old classics and Sci-Fi books.
- Ask me for my favourite game and things are similar with games spanning all sort of genres from Role-Playing to Action and shooters.
I have, however, never been able to specifically name a single favourite of either of those.
Mass Effect has all the potential of being an amazing game. Promising storyline, a big gameworld to explore, great graphics and innovative features. But most of all it promises to involve you directly and make you feel for your decisions.
Some of the reviewers say:
Mass Effect is a great science-fiction novel in videogame form. Meaning, it mixes the highest caliber of pure story with the decision-making and raw action of the best games.
Personally, it’s the best game I’ve ever played, but even if you’re not a hardcore sci-fi nerd like me, Mass Effect is a transcendent experience, the new standard-setter for what a game can be.
It’s a rare thing when a game comes along with the power to move a player emotionally… Mass Effect takes interactive entertainment to breathtaking new heights.
One of the most cinematic games of all-time, something that’s definitely helped by a fantastic story, great writing, movie-quality direction, and strong voiceover work.
I completed Mass Effect on Monday evening and had a total of 52 hours of total playtime. During that time I had to make decisions that not only involved in the death of one of my party members but also other people in the game. I went to places like the moon which was by far the hardest mission in the game, got promoted to Spectre and committed several crimes. Not to mention smuggling, selling drugs and scanning robots.
This is by far the best game I have ever played and I urged everyone to play it. I cannot wait for future downloadable content and the other two games.
