'Mass Effect' delivers an immersive, story-driven gameplay experience with stunning visual fidelity. As the first humans on the galactic stage, players must uncover the greatest threat to civilization. Their job is complicated by the fact that no one will believe the truth, but the world must be convinced of the grave threat at hand.

Players travel across an expansive universe to piece the mystery together. As they discover and explore the uncharted edges of the galaxy, they come closer to an overwhelming truth - learning that the placid and serene universe they know is about to come to a violent end and that they may be the only people who can stop it!

Key Features

# Incredible science-fiction RPG with a rich, engaging story line. On a distant planet an amazing discovery is made. Players must determine the fate of humanity as they lead an elite tactical strike force in an effort to stop an entity so malevolent that it threatens to tear apart the very fibre of galactic civilization. 'Mass Effect' takes players to new depths for an action-RPG, where, unlike in most RPGs, they will be faced with morally complex decisions that have significant impact on the fate of all life in the galaxy. Players must succeed in their quest - no matter what the cost.

# Exploring uncharted worlds and uncovering a mystery that defies imagination. In addition to the main story arc of the game, players are able to visit a large number of uncharted, unexplored planets that are side quests independent from the main story. At any time during the campaign, a player can choose to explore one of these planets and have an opportunity to discover new alien life, resources, ruined civilizations and powerful technologies.

# Real-time, squad-based combat. 'Mass Effect' features a real-time, squad-based tactical combat system. Players enjoy intense, challenging and exciting third-person action and squad-based combat. Players and their squad-mates are able to engage the enemy with ranged weapons and covering fire, biotic powers and science-based magic, and technological powers - all of which will be accompanied by amazing visual and physics effects that will add tremendous excitement and drama to the battlefield. Whether they use powerful biotic powers or the latest in military hardware, players will be well-equipped to take on whatever comes their way

# Credible digital actors. 'Mass Effect' features a huge cast of incredibly realistic non-player characters, enemies and party members. Each of the characters encountered have realistic facial and body movements. A revolutionary advanced dialogue and AI system gives them engaging personalities, creating individuals so realistic they will seem like the first true digital actors ever seen in a video game. The resulting experience is one in which players will feel as if they are part of a rich, living world.

# Character customization and deep role-playing systems. Players will be able to choose from and customize a variety of stunning, photo-realistic character appearances at the start of the game, and can increase various statistics that will affect their performance during gameplay. The reward system in 'Mass Effect' is deep, well-integrated and extremely engaging. New equipment, weapons and armour that are acquired during the course of the story will change the appearance of the characters. 'Mass Effect' gives players a huge breadth of additional customization options for their characters, weapons and vehicles. Talents and abilities will be upgradeable, and advanced talent options will become available at higher levels. Weapons and vehicles will be customizable to include various effects, abilities and upgrades. Each character class will have unique talents and abilities that will increase in power as players progress through the game.

# Next-generation gaming defined. 'Mass Effect' takes full advantage of the hardware of Xbox 360, providing players with exciting new experiences, including photo-realistic, high-definition graphics on an epic scale, and amazingly realistic characters who bring the world alive. Players will be immersed in a massive universe of unbelievable scale, meet characters who feel real and, most important, interact with them in ways that have never been possible before. As the future of gaming goes online, premium downloadable content and recognition of achievements will be available via the Xbox Live online game service.

Great game, looking forward to the sequel later this year......
Now there's no excuse. Everyone, buy this game.
I have yet to complete it myself.

Any good?

Agreed. This is amazing value considering the length of time it takes to complete. Great fun too. When is the sequel out exactly? They put a date on it yet?
31st Oct as far as I know. Around the same time as Bioshock 2 & Modern Warfare 2. Decisions decisions.........
one of the best games i have ever played.

all 3!
I was really bored with this game, just me then?
Heat added. Remember, if you like the look of the second game and havent played this, get it now! Your save (and hence your story) carries on over to Mass Effect 2. (Also meaning if youve traded this in and want different scenarios at the start of the 2nd one, i'd suggest buying it back again :) )
Started playing this on Wednesday.

Its brilliant

Must buy at this price
Great game for that price, doing all the side missions gets a bit repetitive though - the inside of 'bunkers' on the side-mission planets all look the same :p
grex9101 - it's a slow burner to begin with. Read all the dialogue, do all optional stuff as far as you can on the space station. You really need to complete the first few hours thoroughly as this paves the way for the rest of the game.

Then, all of a sudden it opens up and you realise just how excellent this game really is. It's immersive, deep, logical and very exciting.

I tried playing it the first time and almost traded it in until a friend insisted that I take another look.

This game, along with bioshock, were my two favorite games of last year and I would rank them up there in my all time top twenty.

Excellent price and can't wait for ME2

Doesn't take that long to complete between 20-40 hours if you do all the side missions, Good price @ £7.99 but not as ground breaking as all the hype would lead you to believe, Great story but the action gets boring very quick and the locations are almost all the same either a space ship, research centre or cave and the planets all look the same just different colours, Glad I borrowed my brothers copy when it was released, If you've not played it then it's worth getting at this price.
Brilliant price! Heat added. I bought this not too long ago and paid £10 which I thought was the best I'd see!

Really good RPG game, best I've played on the Xbox other than maybe Fallout 3
A glitchy masterpiece

Brilliant game ruined by the fact its glitchy..really. Its still amazing I hope the followup is jsut as good
I got this for £7.50 in Asda (Sutton, Surrey)...last I saw there was one left and they had Dead Space for the same price! :thumbsup:
good price for an ok game
awesome game especially for 7.99,took me a while to get into but once i did i was hooked and bought the extra campaign,which probably cost about 7 quid any way,essential purchase people!
Amazing game, done it 3 times now, twice on the box and once on pc (far better graphics) Took 40hrs to complete the first time round then 30 the last few times on hard.. well worth 4 times the asking price! :thumbsup:
Seems to be a lot of renewed interest in this game of late, so I dug out my copy tonight which was buried at the bottom of the 'Games I No Longer Play And Really Should Flog On eBay' pile.

I was gobsmacked to see that my last save was from January 2008!! Anyways, I tried in vain to remember the story & controls before quickly giving up - just seemed like a chore, which is probably why I stopped playing it in the first place. I'd probably have to start from scratch to get the most out of it but really can't be arsed. My loss maybe.

I do remember enjoying it for a while though and for this price you can't fail really. Good spot OP :thumbsup:
Brilliant game, get in there and build up your character for before the sequel, unless you are unlucky enough to own a ps3 !
Managed to pick this up today in ASDA for £5 :)
I wish this was coming out for ps3 sometime soon.

Sorry to detract but is this instore too?

Looks like it.

I wish this was coming out for ps3 sometime soon.

Probably not gonna happen - i don't think Microsoft are going to allow Mass Effect or sequels to come to the PS3; money will probably exchange hands to make sure of it.
Either invest in some PC hardware or just get an XBOX 360 :thumbsup:

Excellent Price - Brilliant Game, one of my all time favorites :)
Ordered with quidco. Thanks :)
Top game top price, I'm gonna start it again soon as I lost my original save. :(
awesome game. awesome price. just need about a year to finish it.
17.99 now :o(

Will expire this
Expired ... **** ... :(

Knew i shoulda bought it this morning .. :(
probably a misprice then? I wonder if the people who ordered it will actually get it ?
