Follow TV Tropes
Finally got around to picking up the Mass Effect trilogy and am playing through all three games. Just finished the first one and thought I'd leave my thoughts.
Basically, what it comes down to is that there are a lot of brilliant concepts at work here, and the world building and characterization are both extremely strong, but the technical implementation of those ideas is... I guess you could call it clunky. It's not bad, but it feels like the game makers put all the effort into the story and setting, but only made the gameplay adequate. Here's a breakdown of the merits and flaws:
Overall, it's a good game and worth playing. There's tons of potential for awesomeness, but the practical execution is a bit lackluster. It's fun, but the mechanics needed a bit more polish. Hopefully Mass Effect 2 will clear up some of those issues.
