Weekend Game Review

It’s a little late, and this is going to be, admittedly, a tad rushed, but I figured that, since I beat the game within a week of buying it, I should review it.

Mass Effect is one of those games where once you start playing it, you’re not going to stop until it’s over. It was the first RPG in years that I have finished. In fact, I think it might be the ONLY one I have finished.

There are over 30 hours of gameplay, if you do all of the side missions and whatnot. I didn’t. It really only took me about 10 hours to finish the game.

The game itself wasn’t bad at all. The story was compelling, original (to my knowledge), and the gameplay was fun. The controls for PC were a tad wonky, but I suspect it was built for consoles, thus the PC gets the short end, as always.

The game took a lot of heat for having controversial sex scenes, which, having seen them, aren’t really controversial.

That’s about the extent of the first one.

The scene with the human one is a little more graphic, but then again, I can get more porn from a childrens website.

Overall, I thought the game was good, it was fairly long, had some great battles and kept me guessing.

I thought it was kind of cool that you could talk your way out of battles if you wished.

I did, however, find it odd that you could talk your way out of a boss battle.

When the scene was over, I said, “Easiest boss battle ever, I talked him into killing himself!”

So, if you’re a fan of RPG’s, go out and get Mass Effect. Worth every penny. Even if you’re not a fan of RPG’s, get it. It’s a fun game.

Also theres a characted with the moniker Ashley Williams. That’s right.
