Well, I finished the main story of it today and I must say...wow. Mass Effect is easily one of the greatest game series I've ever completed. Yep, it's that good. "But suprgamr232!" You say, "What about all those other cool game series like Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts or LOL CALL OF DUTY??" Nope, not even close. I must admit, the ending makes me suspicious. Why? Because WARNING. THE INFORMATION IN THE SPOILERS CONTAIN HEAVY, Y'KNOW, SPOILERS. READ ONLY IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT THE ENDING OR THE SERIES IN GENERAL. Warning: Spoilers inside! I'll try not to spoil the ending I had too much, but if I do oh well. Anyways, at the end when I integrated with the Catalyst and blew the shit out of all the Reapers and all of the Mass Relays, there's a cutscene involving the Normandy (which Joker is still piloting) trying to outrun the blast. Needless to say he doesn't make it, however, he does crash land on some planet (seems to be some sort of vacation planet, very lovely looking.) At first you think "OH NO THE NORMANDY CRASHED AND IS DEAD!" Nope, door starts to open but before you see anything the cutscene ends. I was thinking this could possibly start some kind of side-story involving Joker because Joker is damn cool. Another reason I have my suspicions is because at the end of the credits you get a cutscene of 2 people (human, an older gentlemen and a younger boy) on a planet with what seems to be multiple moons. It appears as if the entirety of the Mass Effect series was being told to this little boy by the man, about the "Shepard" and how he managed to save the galaxy. It appears, however, that the civilization seen in this cutscene hasn't yet achieved space travel again as the little boy asks the man "Will I ever be able to visit the stars?" who answers "Some day, I'm sure my sweet boy" (or something of the like). After this exchange, however, the little boy asks the old man to tell him another story about the "Shepard", possibly even more story opportunity. Anyways, those who have played it, what do you think? To me it seems this one is more action oriented, as there aren't very many missions where you run around for half an hour searching for something/doing errands. Instead it seems you're fighting the Reapers at every corner, every planet, every space station. It seems to have quite a few more cutscenes as well, at least to me it seemed that way. I also saw an option to turn dialogue options off which was...odd to me, at least in a Mass Effect game. Seems some people just wanted to play the game and didn't care what happened...which brings me to the Renegade/Paragon system. I must admit I didn't pay too much attention to it as it didn't seem to effect very many decisions. There were only a handful of times the dialogue options even came up, but you could still continue on if you hadn't reached that level yet so it seemed a little...unimportant. In a particular mission there are also opportunities t o find explanations on a few things some people might be a bit...unaware of. For instance, EDI's existence and various other things about Project Lazarus. I must say, my favorite line in the game had to be when Warning: Spoilers inside! I was watching a video log between the Illusive Man and a scientist about an attack they attempted on the Normandy, EDI being the one to stop it of course and continued to send "7 zettabytes of explicit materials" to Cerebus...If you ask her about it, she claims most of it "belongs to Joker!" which is just...great Also gotta say I love the new weapons system/upgrade system works. Basically, you find a weapon anywhere in the galaxy on any mission which is cool. After you find the weapon you can buy it's more powerful version on the Normandy, meaning you don't have to go around shops buying the guns/finding them. The upgrade system also works very well, although I wish you could perhaps use more than 2 for some weapon classes like the Sniper and Assault Rifle. Oh well though, can't have everything.
