9.5Classic!

The first and best of the three Mass Effect games, it introduces us to the universe and culture of the Citadel controlled galaxy in a way that I have never experienced with any game. The scale is huge, game play fun and allows for free movement, and the amount of extra stuff that is lying around is amazing. The way you create the story adds for huge amount of interest into what will happen with your character and makes it so you never can truly know how things will end up... 9.5/10

8.0Great

Mass Effect is the zenith of storytelling in video games, innovating so much with it's dialogue system and deep cast of characters, yet also manages to introduce biotic powers into the gameplay. The gameplay does have nasty glitches, some poorly thought out vehicle sections, a complicated item management system and questionable way of balancing weapons. As a result, it often feels like a chore to play but most of the time it's impressive. Above all, its sense of mystery, urgency, camaraderie, thrill and discovery all coalesce together into an unforgettable game.

9.0Fantastic

This series was a blast to play, but the ending gave it all away. It's still fun to start a new character from time to time.

10Classic!

It is science-fiction role-playing perfected. You lead your squad in intense, real-time combat but have ample of opportunity to lose yourself in a living galaxy before the vastness of space beckons. It is victorious in every department of narrative, aesthetic and interactive excellence. From the moment the intro theme hits, through every following emotional peak and valley, all the way to the intense showdown at the end, this larger than life space voyage exudes only wondrous brilliance and instills goose bumps at every turn!

7.0Good

Mass Effect is one of the biggest success story's of it's generation, being one of the most talked about games when it came out. And on the whole there is a lot to like. The sci-fi setting, while not anything terribly original, is well detailed and inhabited by well designed alien races that have interesting relationships, and the plot is decent. However, the shooting gameplay is frankly not very good, especially at the beginning which can be overwhelming, and exploring planets in the Mako is dull too. Even the dialog decisions feel limiting for a game that claims to be all about role-playing. That said, I do like how big the game feels exploring the galaxy. Greater than the sum of it's parts, despite some serious flaws.

8.5Fantastic

Another great Mass Effect game, I just preferred the last two. This one just had too much tedious exploring for me.

8.5Fantastic

What is to be said about Mass Effect has been written before. The most amazing and compelling story arch in a game. They blast of the series with a timeless classic, introducing you to all of the main players of the galaxy at just the right times. Combat in my opinion is a little stiff in this Epic space saga (overused term) but it makes up for that with...just being awesome. I can't even write a competent review without me falling short of what it deserves. A true masterpiece in gaming.

Despite the terrible combat the game could just be talking. The best decision making game of all time
