Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time playing Mass Effect... pretty cool game I have seeing this game and just looked over it i finally decided to go buy it and after playing it for 8 hours I have come to the conclusion that this game is truly on its own league in other words is a hybrid. This game is like Star Wars mixed with a FPS... the story line pulls you right in from the beginning... the gameplay is nice a lot of options and customizable items... graphics are very good... overall i would recommend this game to any one

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow, surprisingly good! First off, I don't write reviews because most of what is written has been paid for, not in this case. I bought this game from a friends recommendation so if you are on the fence about it maybe this will help. The interface is easy to deal with, I liked the conversation options, game crashed once and I just adjusted down my video options to get past it, fortunately it was a very small amount of gameplay and then readjusted my video back to the max it was at originally. Got through to the end and now on my second run. Make sure you go to every galaxy and explore every planet, might get a little tideous but worth it for the salvage, upgrades and credits, and the creators spent a lot of time designing the star systems, etc. so worth the time just for that. Make sure you have the minimum recommendations for you PC before you buy, I do and other than the small glitch I stated above I had no problems. Save before you do a bypass or a hack in case it only gives you the one chance to interact with terminal during gameplay and make sure you get the extra time upgrades for both so you don't have make so many save points. Not a hardcore gamer, this game will make you lose track of time, don't stress if you die alot, it is fun experience and there are plenty of walkthrough sites to help. Good luck.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very difficult unless...you know "1" I bought this game with no experience with either game (Mass Effect 1 and 2). Big mistake! The creators seem to have assumed that everyone would be familiar with the original game. Been playing for 25+ hours and I've only managed to recruit one character. It is on the basic/easy level but keep on dying. Everyone says how great it is and the wonderful ending and all. Yeah right!!! How are you supposed to see all those great things if you cant get anywhere? Guess I could check You Tube videos. WHAT A COLOSSAL WASTE OF MONEY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good game! Bioware really did it this time! Very good game, downloaded the demo, tried it, worked like a charm! Even though it wasn't for Windows 7 operating system, it ran smoothly with barely noticeable lag. Although it wasn't the full version, I was still really satisfied with the performance, it features 2 action-packed levels and a basiclly unlimeted amount of customization options and choice making. If you have played the first game, it would be easier to understand the plot, even though it is still very easy to pick up and play. As I am very satisfied with the demo, I can only imagine what the full game is like! BioWare, you never disappoint me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the game and almost made out with the endin The game was absolutely wonderful. I loved how it made you think with twists and turns that all can condemn our save your mission. BioWare really doesn't let on that if you kill some random Krogan your ship will have a heart attack(not really but you get the idea). I also loved how you could choose to use your save from ME1 which was wonderful. I would recommend this to everyone who likes a good game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wicked Sick! After the completion of the first game in this trilogy, I found that the default keys for game-play were better positioned than the first. The graphics were pretty cool, too! The ability to import your ME1 character was an added bonus. The fact that the outcome of this and the first Mass Effect games could have a drastic effect on the third make it seem like I'm a kid reading a "Choose-your-own-adventure" book again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most complete story telling I've seen in a game Aside from a punk choosing to rate this game as a one everyone I have seen or talked to considers this among the best pure stories in game form. It took me a bit to adjust to the new interface but minor complaints aside, this game is so immersive that I find myself playing it over and over to explore all the possible permutations of the story arc. The DLC add ons expand and enrich the playing experience.
