Eurogamer: Mass Effect Review


Embargo-a-go-go! My review of Bioware's Mass Effect goes live over at Eurogamer. I start like this...

Given that Kristan wrote a three-page review of the Xbox 360 version back in November, and the PC version is basically identical, I'm left with a whole review to dwell on the important questions about Mass Effect. For instance, why did BioWare model its adorably rubbish Mako ground-attack truck on early-eighties toy Big Trak: the Fully Programmable Electronic Vehicle?

And then go on to actually talk about the game, like some kind of proper games writer guy. Well, a bit, anyway. By page 2 I'm well into crazed theorising about its resemblance to Total War and the fundamental flaws of free-exploration in plot-based RPGs and similar. Go readeth, Verily and stuff.
