4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Space Epic April 26, 2011
By Isaac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've heard of this game from awhile back and I didn't think much of it until I had a sudden urge to expand out of the FPS genre for no good reason. This game is the perfect remedy as it has the action of a shooter and the customizability and the free roaming formula of a RPG and a heck of a story to go with it.

Pros:
-Great storytelling and very in-depth. Each alien race has its own unique characteristics and history, including humans and how each race intertwine with one another is intriguing. It is very easy to get immersed into this universe.
-Superb writing. The story is dramatic when it needs to be, and humorous when it wants to be, and the game convey these emotions very well. Instead of just reading and choosing text options, most everything is voiced, and that is an impressive feat considering the quality of the voice cast and all the dialogue options available.
-Great blend of RPG and shooting. Abilites, weapons, and armor is fully customizable according to the class, and this customizability gives you an edge against certain enemies and sometimes putting you at a disadvantage against other enemies. This can be offset by the teammates you pick. The dialogue wheel is superb. Choosing to let someone live or die, or to be friendly or hostile is a blast and has the potential for many different combination of how NPCs interact to the player which goes into my next point.
-The decisions you make will transfer to Mass Effect 2&3. While the transfer from ME1 to ME2 isn't significant (but still cool to see cameos), I bet it has a significantly bigger consequence in ME3.
-Great price! It's was only $10-$15 when I bought it and I believe it is still in that price range.

Cons:
-Occasional crash and a few bugs.

4.0 out of 5 stars A few glitches, but otherwise incredible. February 19, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My friends had been ranting about this game for a long time before I finally tried it out myself. I have to say that I was very, very impressed. Mass Effect isn't new (the sequel's been out for over a month, I think), but it is still worth playing. If you enjoy sci-fi, RPGS, or shooting aliens, this game is for you.

PROS: Incredible story in a massive universe. Superior voice-acting and genuinely lovable characters. Game experience is very engaging--combat is fairly smooth, and non-combat situations are still interesting. Player can customize character, team members, and even the story itself. Ties into the sequel perfectly.

CONS: A few minor glitches here and there--player can get stuck or frozen sometimes and will have to restart from the last save. Some parts are dull or repetitive. Controls take some getting used to, and non-linear plot can be confusing.

All in all, a great game with a few minor quirks and high replay value. I recommend it to anyone with a PC that meets the system requirements. Of course, you may not like it as much as I did. Also, please remember this game is rated "M," and therefore definitely not for kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game June 19, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I really like this type of game for the way you can change the story line by your actions and conversations. I was surprised to find the combat was awesome as well. In addition to traditional weapons, you also have the choice to get "biotic" abilities, similar to the force from Star Wars. The graphics are great to and the universe you find yourself in is almost more interesting than the story itself. The only problem I had with this game is that I wish it were longer. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoyed the Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Role Playing Game July 19, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I normally do not review games, but this one was so good. My husband and I have been playing computer games for years. We each have our own pc and play games at the same time. The storyline was great but there was still plenty of action, visual effects were super, had a good beginning, middle and wonderful ending. You felt like you were leaving good friends behind when the games ended. Hopefully BioWare will continue to make such outstanding games.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
i bought this game from, harleys international shipped from UK. The delivery time and product came extremely fast :D. but i cannot play the game unless i register the product. i am unable to register the product. the reason being is, according to EA, the product key is not a legitimate product key. so i cannot use this product at all. also the game didnt ask for a product key when installing. here is where the problem occurs. i cannot play the game on win7 unless i update it to v1.2 or something like that, now i can only download the update if i register my product, i also cant get any of the expansions EA has made for the game unless i register so in term i cannot play and EA says the serial key isn't legit. so my assumption/educated guess is that this vendor is possibly selling pirated copies. i say this because during the install it didnt ask for the product key, which is what allot of pirated mods will do so you dont hafto register your product. i have played the game before, i love this game why else would i go and purchase the game. i have contacted the seller and i am still awaiting reply...

2.0 out of 5 stars "Embrace Eternity" (at EAbioware's Discretion) August 26, 2012
By H. Le
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Having survived the terrible experience of Mass Effect 3's horrible ending - which, BTW, has been improved from horrible to underwhelming with the Extended Cut DLC - I decided to play ME1 again just to immerse in the fantastic Mass Effect phenomenon at least once more. Moreover, I want to prove to myself that ME3's ending, as disappointing as it is, cannot mar the eternal beauty of ME1 (and to a lesser effect, also ME2) - And I am happy to report that I was not disappointed.

To begin with, it is crucial to establish that ME1 is unique in the series because it is a RPG with shooter element, whereas ME2 and ME3 are shooters with RPG elements. The most important and simple distinction is this: In ME1, regardless of how well your aiming skill is, your weapons' accuracy is, by and large, dependent on the XP you invested in a particular weapon. On the other hand, in ME2 and 3, your aiming skill (along with reaction speed) determines your accuracy. In this regard, to me, ME1 is the best in the series as a RPG; with ME3 being the best as a shooter(in spite of its disappointing ending; and ME2 somewhere in between (for the overall games in disregard of the genres, I'd rate ME1 being the best game overall, followed by ME2, then ME3).

Also, ME1 leans heavily toward exploration. Granted, this is the least developed aspects of the game, especially in regard to driving around the planets in the M35 Mako infantry assault vehicle or running around the Citadel doing side quests, which can be uneventful for the most part - if not downright boring. On the other hand, running or driving around afford you some spectacular views such as the Earth rise from the moon or awe-inspiring vista from the Citadel docking bay.

The original, and very fun. Many of the features were well thought out and implemented very well. Lots of clipping, but that is the case with most games it seems.
