Mass Effect -- Platinum Hits (Microsoft Xbox 360, 2009)
About this product
|The heroism of one brave human being could have a massive effect on the entire galaxy, in this original sci-fi RPG from BioWare. Players take the customizable role of a celebrated starship captain, who is exploring the fringes of known space when the story begins. Mass Effect is set soon after human beings have discovered the secrets to interstellar travel, and the people of Earth were both surprised and challenged to find that the universe is full of intelligent races that are far more advanced than they. However, it may very well be those human ties to a more primal nature that ultimately save all the space-faring species from destruction.|
Built on a third-generation version of the Unreal game engine, Mass Effect features real-time combat, in which players take limited command of a three-soldier squad. Decisions made by the hero, both in the heat of battle and in sophisticated role-playing sequences, will affect many details and may even influence the final outcome of the plot. Mass Effect is intended as the first of a trilogy of Xbox 360 games from BioWare. The two-disc Platinum Hits edition bundles BioWare's award-winning game with its "Bring Down the Sky" expansion, and includes a "making of" documentary, musical selections, artwork, and original trailers.

Great storyline and awesome game! Can't stop thinking about it!
This was the game that introduced me to the XBOX 360 world. Before, I was using XBOX 360 for Netflix. I never played shooting and fighting games and was never interested in them. This all changed with this game. I recommend putting in the time and effort to really get into the game as this will help you with Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 as you can take your Shepard character with you.<br><br>Pros: Great game to start, awesome storyline, one of the best game series I have ever played.<br><br>Cons: It's very rare to find a game like this and having it be the game that introduced me into the XBOX 360 world, I can't find one that is exactly like it. It's like having a $200 Japanese Kobe beef as your first meat experience then trying to find that same experience in a regular store bought Ribeye. I still have not been able to find another game that I have truly enjoyed like Mass Effect but I'm working on it.<br><br>Once you start, you may play this several days straight!Read full review

The begining of one of the best game series ever! I bought because it was hard to find here where i live.<br>If you want to know all of mass effect experience, you need to play the whole story from the begining.

A must play game before trying the sequels!
One of my favorite games from a couple years ago. Great story, good graphics considering it's age, and a boatload of fun. You can't truly enjoy Mass Effects 2 & 3 without this game!

i JUST bought an xbox kinect for my daughter , but she's still a little young to get into it. so I went to gamestop and them to recommend a good rpg, cuz im not into all the blood and violence in most games, but i like a good story and I love sci-fi. mass effect is the game! im 14 hours in and it looks like there is a LOT more to this game. This is a grown up game, just because there is some explicit content, but because its extensive.
