Well I finally got this a little under 2 weeks ago for PC, then of course b/c I didn't realize my graphics card was under spec I had to go buy a new one, but once I did, I was glad I upgraded, this game was great, don't get me wrong, sometimes the conversations were a bit slow, but since you could skip the dialogue if you wanted to(as long as it's not an actual cut scene) it worked out great, and it was one of those games where they actually got the whole good/evil system right all the way up to the end of the game. I still kind of wish I had a 360 to play it on as I'm more a fan of playing console games rather than PC(I hate upgrading and learning new keymaps for every other game) but the PC version was wonderful, the keymap was easy, and intuitive, and other than some minor glitch with repeated sound stalling the game for a few seconds and making the spoken dialogue skip(only during the player's character portions and only for the current lines, not the whole conversation) and that was I think more b/c my sound card is old or some of the settings were wrong. It's fairly easy to get a little over half the achievements done in one run through the game, you can get even more done if you play one of the hybrid classes like Sentinel. And of course having it carry over your money, lvl, exp, stats, and gear when you do the New Game+ was cool, especially b/c it cloned the gear your character was currently wearing at the end of the game so you had a copy of each final weapon and piece of gear not only on your char but in your inventory as well, meaning I could immediately give a member of my squad the Spectre X gear as well as having the Spectre VII gear that my other characters were wearing as well for the squad members you pick up later, allowing much faster run throughs of the game when you try for the lvl 60(only available after 1 completed game, not sure if you can do it with a new file or if only available in New Game+) and the squad member achievements or the ones based around a specific number of kills with a specific weapon. I also liked how the majority of achievements gave benefits that carried over regardless while there were only a few that you actually had to pick and choose between. My biggest issue with this game right now is two-fold, part 1 is that they haven't added anymore downloadable content after the first new mission added although supposedly there is more coming, making a sort of Mass Effect 1.5(that was what they called it in interviews) to appease gamers until the sequel comes out. And the second part is that Mass Effect 2 isn't out yet, I can't wait for 2 and 3 to further the story, although I'm wary of what's going to happen to the franchise after that seeing as before the first game was released it was planned as a trilogy but after the record sales and rave reviews it was tentatively announced that they would go beyond the originally planned trilogy, that doesn't bother me as long as they complete the trilogy as planned, and don't try to stretch it out for a 4 and 5th game and so on. If the potential extra games want to start a completely new story arc that's fine with me. But I for one am definitely waiting for Mass Effect 2 to come out, I really loved this game, now I need to go back to it so I can finish unlocking achievements and then create a final save file that has everything done the way I want so I know which file I will be transferring to the sequel.
