Happiness and Excitement altered with Frustration and Misery
Welcome everyone to the Mass Effect 1 Review. Ok I overdosed the second part of the title just a bit but lets have a look on what is Mass Effect. Mass Effect was developed by the Canadian company BioWare and is a multi platform trilogy and one of the best sci-fi action RPGs (Role Playing Games) of ALL TIMES . With a breath taking story you will travel and explore a whole galaxy.
You will discover new planets some with hostile environments and some colonizable. Tou will commence mining operations on the newly discovered planets. You will discover new cities , outposts and bases . You will meet alien races some really good looking and attractive, some really weird and some really scary . Every and each one of them has its own unique appearance , history , culture , customs etc.
Also you will face enemies beyond your wildest dreams and beyond your imagination . You will make strong friendships and a lot of enemies. Your loyal friends will fight and die for you in their attempt to protect you from your enemies who will try to rip you apart literally. High tech weapons, armors, upgrades, biotic powers, high tech futuristic glove look like weapons and even vehicles will be available to you to take down your enemies or even persuade some non cooperative individuals 🙂 .
You will have to make decisions that will not only affect you and your squad mates and the rest of the crew ( the crew of your spaceship and yes you have one of those too ) but also trillions of lives or better said the lives of all the humanoids/creatures in the galaxy. You will have numerous conversations with dozens of other NPCs ( Non Player Characters ) and your answers will make them your allies or your enemies or they will just choose not to help you . If your answer is the right one ( actually there is not right and wrong , whatever decision you make you will get to your final goal but from a different path ) you will be rewarded if it is wrong you will be punished so choose wisely .
Military operations, politics , economy, bureaucracy and even romances ( yes yes romances) all are part of a game which will transform a casual player to a hardcore psychotic or better obsessed ( in a good way of course) dedicated player !!!! The graphics of the game are just exceptional and you need a really good game machine to reveal the glory of this game …. Believe me when I say ….YOU JUST CAN’T HAVE ENOUGH OF THIS….
What Is Mass Effect ?
To tell you the truth I ve read it in the codex of the game but I did not pay much attention or did not understand it…whatever !! A better explanation is the following:
Project Director Casey Hudson explained the term “Mass Effect” as follows:
Inside the game universe, mass effect is a newly discovered (for humans) physics phenomenon that has properties along the lines of other physics forces such as gravity and electromagnetism. It’s what physicists in real life are currently calling “dark energy”, as an explanation for the accelerating expansion of the universe – which has only recently been discovered and flies in the face of the previous notion that the universe’s expansion should be slowing down because of gravity.
Hudson explains that certain creatures are evolved to sense and manipulate mass effect much like some real-life creatures such as sharks and electric eels can sense and manipulate electromagnetism in peculiar ways. Some humans are preternaturally capable of these abilities, which can be enhanced via implants, and the trained manipulation of Mass Effect is referred to as biotics.
