The galaxy is trapped in an endless cycle of extinction. Every 50,000 years, an ancient machine race invades the galaxy. With ruthless efficiency, the machines wipe out all advanced organic civilization. They leave behind only the scattered ruins of technology, destroying all evidence of their own existence; few believe this ancient legend. You, however, know it to be true. The fight to stop this extinction event has become the most important mission in the galaxy.

It is your mission. As Commander Shepard of the SS Normandy, you will take your elite recon squad across a galaxy in turmoil, in a desperate race to stop the return of an enemy without mercy. To stop this enemy, you must act without remorse, without hesitation, and outside the limits of the law. Your only imperative is to preserve the safety of civilized life in the galaxy - at any cost. You must become the tip of the spear of humanity, for you alone know the full extent of what is at stake if you should fail.

4 out of 5 eggshmmmmm

Pros: beautiful graphics, good quests, variety of weapons and skills,

Cons: it took some time to get used to the control of the game, they could of done better in explaining how things work with the character setup, you can get easily lost in cities, EA buying out Bioware, need to explain more on the "magic" system

Other Thoughts: not really a con but I really can't tell the difference in HD game play versus normal analog game play and I have a 60" 1080p TV.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat game

Pros: Sweet game, story. Everything that you'd expect from a bioware game.

Cons: Theres a lot of elevators in the game. A LOT. Meaning you'll be sitting around for about 30 seconds not doing anything frequently.

4 out of 5 eggsHad it once, will have it again!

Pros: This game rocked so hard, I can't believe I sold it! I'll be picking it up again in time for Christmas, a present for uh... myself. Anyways, graphics are awesome at 1080p, storyline is massive and draws you in. I actually didn't go to work one day, I'm not even the "fat nerd" who is expected to do that. Its epic in every single way. If you buy this you will be rocked. Make sure you can miss a day of school or work. Honestly!

Cons: Graphics were untextured for about 2 seconds on and off with the game, however it may have been my Xbox which has since been sent to Microsoft for repairs!

Other Thoughts: Ending is... ok I guess. Made me cry just as Halo's ending did. Guess I'm just a loser :'(

2 out of 5 eggsGood role playing bad gameplay

Pros: Can really get into the Role Playing elements, Good detail, excellent graphics, open environment

Cons: In order of annoyance:
1. Terrible inventory management system (or huge lack thereof)
2. Combat system is quirky and teammate AI is really bad and this limits options for character builds
3. Dialog system is annoying to use and wastes a lot of time
4. Quests and other planets quickly get repetitive
5. Game gets progressively easier instead of progressively harder and playing on the hardest difficulty doesn't make the game any more challenging, it just makes the enemies harder to kill.

1. The single most annoying thing about this game is the inventory system. Running around in the environment you collect mass quantities of stuff most of it junk and it's hard to manage what you want to keep vs. sell. No real categories to speak of and the equipment upgrade system almost takes more time then the value you get out of it.

Other Thoughts: If you enjoy the Role Playing element of RPS more then the gameplay you'll love this Game, the roleplaying is excellent. However if you If you want a better balance between gameplay and roleplaying Oblivion is a much better choice. Oblivion has good roleplaying but it just doesn't get to the level of Mass Effect.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Game

Pros: - Awesome graphics, sound and story line
- Great Gameplay

Cons: - The game is so good that it bogs the 360 up.
- Occasional frame skips and stuff like that.

Other Thoughts: - Buy it, well worth it now that it's 27.99 or something like that. I would of payed 56.99 when it came out if I knew about it earlier.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat game

Pros: Great storyline, gameplay, cinematics, great game overall

Cons: Framerates... this game stutters alot, if you get this problem, turn off motion blur, it helps ALOT. Also, weapon mods are a pain to do and squad AI is kinda wacky. My allies always get in my way.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this game was amazing, but could definately have used some polish. Framerates were all over the place

4 out of 5 eggsKotor 3

Pros: Great story, surprisingly good voice acting. Interesting RPG/FPS integration.

Cons: A lot of the planets you can land on were generic, and had no differences in gravity or atmosphere. The rover is hard to control and gets you killed if you're not careful. Exploring planets often involves trying to find ways up sheer cliffs or around mountains. Use a map (from the Mass Effect wiki) if you're trying to find something.

Other Thoughts: I finished my first game on veteran at just over 42 hours, but had completed most of the achievements possible in one save game. Be aware: if you want to play the highest difficulty and achieve everything, you're going to have to play this 3-4 times. This game is pretty much Kotor 3, minus Star Wars, plus Halo.

5 out of 5 eggsNext-Gen

Pros: This game has everything a RPG love could want...Awesome story line, memorable charters huge world(s)! It also has excellent graphics, its what you would expect from a next-gen game and console....at time it actually looks like a live action movie cinematic, thats how good the graphics are...if you like RPG's and you what nothing less that true next-gen graphics with wicked game play then Mass Effect is a MUST HAVE!!!!

Cons: sometimes you can actually watch the textures load while your playing the game, this is to shorten load times and also because Xbox has 512 or so mb of ram dedicated to the graphics...but this does not mean the xbox360 is weak....you will also notice on some npc's have low rez hair and clothing...also this is not because the xbox360 is weak, programmers will eventually learn how to write code that is less consuming of resources... having a console that is expected to last 6 or so years will encourage developers to write code that is less consuming of the resources and in return be able to make much more graphical games that are more efficient in code.

Other Thoughts: One game that is now more efficient is gears of war 2...in gow1, it could only place about 5 enemy npc's on the screen at one time, but now due to advances in the understanding of the xbox360 hardware they have been able to put more that 100 enemy npc's one the screen...which is a huge difference.
