Summary: I love the game, story, mechanics, and all, however there is a hiccup that is pretty hindering and that is that you can't backup your save game, you can only move it. So basically you can only have 1 save file, which is pretty scary in case of file corruption, some odd console glitch, etc. As long as you are careful with your save file such as having it on a flash drive, you should be fine. Other than that the game is pretty damn good.
Summary: If you haven't played Mass effect then you are in for great deal, don't worry about how long this game is because you will be playing for days! Note: All dlc is not included in this package, the only dlc included is Cerberus (Mass Effect 2) you will still get around 60 hours of content all together in this trilogy package, depending on how you play.
Summary: in the ME series as well as obviously being the first in the series. This is a very solid little game though it's much more of a grinder than the others. Newcomers are probably best served by jumping straight to ME2 though purists and completists will benefit from this one as well.
Summary: The mass effect series, is a sensation. These games have so much depth, its hard to describe the level of detail, from gear to the rivetting story. I truly enjoyed every minute of it. The first game introduces you to a story that challenges your morality and decision making. Throughout all three games your choices carry over, as well as your character. I can't stress enough how much of a difference it makes to play all three games in order.
Summary: Mass Effect is a game that you drawn into, the voice acting is perfectly executed, the characters are beautifully rendered, and there's real science in this fiction, and you feel like your a part of this world too.
