Mass Effect takes the player into a futuristic adventure with serious enemies, but meeting them head-on with matching firepower.
Once you’ve constructed your character as leader of a military alliance squad out to find valuable technology, you’re taken to the planet Eden Prime where you’ll face some explosive first person shooting, as well as tactical adventure (interacting with your squad).
Your enemy is not one to surrender.
What makes this more fun than usual is the fact that your character’s various configurations chosen at start-up (your gender, birth location, family history, temperament, and job description), as well as your choice of questions when conversing with other characters determine the directional drive of the story.
You’ll also notice character voices from actors like Lance Henriksen (Near Dark, Aliens), Keith David (Firestarter) and Seth Green (Austen Powers, Family Guy).
