Default Woot, mass effect on PC

DailyTech - EA to Deliver PC Version of Mass Effect

Hopefully it will have the extra content that they are selling the 360 people

Nothing to see here.

I really didn't like the game that much, but it's nice to see a game getting ported from 360 to PC.

Same, got bored at the stage. It lacks an exciteing pace and good leveling system. The spells take to long to cast, theres to little of them, and objects which previously wouldn't move on pre-gen systems (like boxes etc) don't move on powerfull next gen systems like these. Inapropiate.

And its difficult. The AI is unexciteing, and the framerate is something to be desired. The weapon combat is frustrateing, i find myself waiting for a minute just to fire a spell, and then miss because the enemy moved..

Devil May Cry 4 was the other game i got, everything i just said then is the opposite on this game. It's as close to perfect as a fantasy adventure arcade style fighting game could get. Gorgeous graphics, solid framerate, very exciteing fighting, engageing combat, addictive and rewarding style system. Good gradeing system for each level, interestingly fantastic character designs. And the moves that you can pull off make you go Woahh !
