This game started an amazing series and is one of my favorites. The story is good plus easy to understand, graphics were nice and voice acting was enjoyable. I liked the companion system it worked pretty well and the companions themselves were each awesome in their own way. Combat of the game is indeed duck and cover but it worked out nicely. There is plenty of customization when it comes to picking out which weapons/armor you want yourself or your companions to use, plus lots of mods (or addons) for those weapons and armor. I unfortunately found myself selling alot of the items I'd find as they were either duplicates or stuff that I already have better versions of. Bioware did good with Mass Effect and I really recommend this game.

Cool game, not as good as, say, System Shock 2. But still one of the greater games to come out recently.

Every few years a new IP will come along that shakes things up in the industry, and Mass Effect can hold its head high in that regard. Mass Effect boasts fluid combat, a beautiful thoughtfully-crafted world, and an immersive storyline. I'm a little ashamed to admit I spent many untold hours playing through this game. It's not often that you find a game that can fill the need of the fast-paced FPS gamer, as well as the meticulous RPG fan, but Bioware has filled the need. Whether it's riding around on the surface of any one of the numerous planets found throughout the galaxy, saving the universe one headshot at a time, or running around and investigating the lore of this virtual world, I found it all here. I found that the equipment management in Mass Effect 1 far surpassed its successors. Loot-driven gameplay and the ability to change the ammo type of your weapons added to the tactics and replayability that this game has to offer. If you're looking for a great game packed with excellent voice-acting, world design, hours of gameplay, and satisfying combat, you should pick this up. It's time to see what your friends have been talking about.
One of the Best Sci Fi RPG/Shooters in ExistenceROKET | June 22, 2012 | See all ROKET's reviews »
I played ME1 a little while after release and didnt really know what I was getting into when I bought it but was blown away by the end. I never expected for an RPG and Third Person Shooter to be integrated to well into one of the best Sci Fi settings I had ever seen. Gameplay wise you got a third person shooter that used a cover mechanic system and a variety of gunplay and what would come to be known as a biotic system that gave you something similar to magic force powers. Haha. It was both satisfying and challenging and fun. In addition to active gameplay you also got an awesome RPG system that let you allocate points as you leveled up. It allowed for a lot of customization and went well with the loot system and upgrades. The story for ME1 was also amazing and epic in scale. You traversed the entire galaxy trying to save the various races from an impending threat. I loved this game and highly recommend it.
