Excerpt: "Mass Effectin pc-versio on loistava esimerkki, kuinka käännöspeli voi tuntua jopa alkuperäisteosta paremmalta, kunhan siihen panostetaan riittävästi aikaa ja vaivaa. Vaikka kyse on pohjimmiltaan aivan samasta pelistä Xbox-version kanssa, ovat pienet ehostukset grafiikassa ja käyttöliittymän uudelleensovitus tehneet ihmeitä.
Excerpt: Mass Effect is the first RPG of the current generation to get a large amount of attention from the media and players.

Stunningly rendered with gorgeous characters and combat animations, Infiltrator does a great job of capturing the universe, but sadly flubs the combat controls in a big way.
Excerpt: With the third and final chapter in Commander Shepard's trilogy coming this fall, BioWare has been working on ways to get us excited for Mass Effect 3 . One of these ways is in delivering a new, and likely final, chapter in Mass Effect 2 's DLC-based adventures. That last one hit the internet yesterday. The "Arrival" DLC puts Shepard on a solo mission to rescue an engineer that has made a big, vital discovery about the coming Reaper invasion.

Excerpt: It took me two years, but I finished Mass Effect , Bioware's science fiction RPG and the company's follow-up to Knights of the Old Republic. I wasn’t far from the end – it only took a two-hour push to finally beat the main campaign – but finding those two hours had been a challenge when I was reviewing a new game every other week.
Excerpt: add-on was released a year ago on the PC and almost two years ago on the 360, and while Bioware did promise a regular schedule of new paid content, it really hasn't happened.
