Mass Effect

Mass Effect is a role playing game (RPG) developed by Canada’s BioWare Corp. It was earlier developed for the Xbox 360 but, in May 2008, Electronic Arts published the PC edition.

This space opera action RPG takes place in the year 2183 within an epic universe. Its players assume the role of Commander Shepard, a human soldier who set out on a starship to explore a vast galactic community. The villain in the game is a renowned agent who has gone rogue. This rogue agent threatens to conquer the galaxy through alien armies. To keep that from happening, players must lead a squad of freedom fighters with the ultimate goal of restoring peace within the galaxy.

Mass Effect features a real-time tactical combat system. As the leader, players can easily control each and every member of the squad. It features a Tactical Heads-up Display (HUD) so players can access Individual Squad Command, Biotics Powers, and Abilities & Weapons command interfaces in one screen.

At the beginning of the game, players can choose from a range of character appearances. Throughout the game, players will have the chance to increase various statistics and acquire a number of equipment, artillery, and armor. Everything acquired throughout the game will have an effect on the appearance of characters. Apart from this, players are allowed to visit a number of unexplored planets. However, this is not directly related to the game’s main story line.

Other features of Mass Effect’s PC edition include optimized controls, higher resolution visuals, re-designed Mako controls, and an enhanced inventory system.

System Requirements

Mass Effect runs on both Windows XP and Windows Vista. It requires at least a 2.4 GHz Intel or 2.0 GHz AMD processor. It also requires at least an NVIDIA GeForce 6 series or an ATI 1300XT graphics card, DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card and drivers, and 12 gigabytes of hard drive space. It requires at least 1 gigabyte of RAM when running on XP and 2 gigabytes when on Vista.
