When I started playing Mass Effect for the PC I wasnt so sure of how it would be. Really, there are games that you just know are good, others that you dont know or care and just give them a try. With ME since Sterling´s "mass of shit" i wasnt so sure what to expect, on the othter hand a friend with a 360 told me it was one of the best RPG games he had ever played.
So i was left in the middle of nowhere, anyway... now Im playing it and it feels sort like home. Of course the game has its points where you just say "screw with this, too much to read", that happens with all the information in the log book, too much information, but on the other hand its necesary, it helps any nerd to become connected with the "universe" of the game. And I have to admit they did a pretty good job with the universe, the set up, the species, the background history of each species, worlds and characters.
Any science fiction fan fall in love with everything.
The controls for the PC handle pretty good, but I cant say anything about its console part because I havent played. As I allready said this is the main cause of why I havent played nothing online (FNF or TNF, TF2 or COD4), the MP experience of a game is fun for me, but I just stick with a good old single player.
The tedious part maybe is all the driving part of the game. The terrain, made on purpose, is terrible and they could have made something less frustrating since some places are crap to drive. Maybe thats the idea, but still, trying to get to a destination somethimes... well, crap.
Combat, I like it, feels like an action+RPG, you know you are playing an RPG game, but still lots of action and the combination works great. You can stop the fight, activate a couple of special actions of your squad and change tactics with different squad members without having to think on nanoseconds. I like to blow stuff and then get to talk to the characters, slow down for a bit and get the bigger picture after each mission.
So yeah, the game for me is like sex but I havent had sex yet, yes, Iam a virgin in the game, I want to, maybe with the alien... lets see what happens, she is very open minded and all, very experimental... Wish me luck with the alien slut.
