Average User Score: 8.2Mar 6, 2012This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Overall this game was great, it's only real flaw was the graphics and that little stump of lag you'd get every now and then for no reason. The graphics weren't great, but they weren't bad either. The visuals were not trying to be the best they could be but still try to look decent. My major peeve is the game felt small despite all the sub quests and such, there's only one respectable town and it's a village and it gets destroyed halfway through the game. I feel if they added some more towns, locations, and a more open world, this game could of easily been a classic GOTY material game that could of even toppled Fable. It's writing was unbeatable, it's music was fabulous, and you'll never forget a single character you meet.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.2Mar 6, 2012This really saddens me. I enjoyed the first Mass Effect greatly, it was one of the top games and one my personal GOTYs. But this is a travesty, it is nothing short of a joke, the punchline written by Hepler. SPOILER : The ending reveals it was all just a grandpa telling his grandson a story. How lazy do you have to be that you have to end a story with "It was all just a story."? I don't even understand how being hired through nepotism has helped Hepler maintain her position as a writer for bioware, this is the third game in a row that they have released with just horrid writing. You can disagree all you want, but why don't you go back and play Baldur's Gate and compare the writing of then to now. Admittely most of the reviews are probably trolls, the positive ones at least. Fans in denial that their perfect company could ever have a flaw, who likely haven't even played the game. The plot makes no sense, they go out of there way to make sure every past action of the player doesn't matter whatsoever, they sexualize characters for no reason and the ones they have no way of sexualizing they completely ignore.
Picking a heterosexual option is a renegade choice, how? Overall I'm not disappointed, I was disappointed when they ruined Dragon Age. Now I'm just waiting for them to release their ultimate garbage ball which will either kill the company and put it out of it's mercy or get them to reconsider their writing staff a little more carefully.… Expand
Average User Score: 3.3Nov 8, 2011They literally LITERALLY did not change a thing from MW2. Same weapons. Same streaks. Same perks. Same graphics (not even joking) Same **** cluttered maps with random fire on the streets. Autoaim is SO strong even on multiplayer that you can aim 10 inches away from someone and it'll still hit them. Same audio down to the rank up music. Even the same **** tags and loading screens.
Blackops wasn't this **** rehashed even. It is seriously just MW2 with a new story, and honestly did you even play for the story?… Expand
