I won't get into specifics but I will say that the game is freaking awesome. Serious, serious depth and scope to the game, good graphics and sound, cool story, it has it all. If you are an rpg fan you won't go wrong with it.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Sounds great. I have been following this game for a bit and I thought it would make a perfect reward for when I finish my essays. Glad to see it is good.

I'm pretty much going to echo what Wraithlord said, but yeah, the game is huge. Multiple races, classes, specializations, and several story arcs. Graphics can be a little choppy at times (I'm on the 360), but due to the massive scope of the game, it's not only forgivable, but mild graphic inconsitancies are down right forgettable.

If I had to give it a rating, I'd go with a 9/10. Probably *the* most in-depth story/world since the original Neverwinter Nights, or perhaps even the Baldur's Gate series.

It goes on my, "most recommended," list.

Level me up! I, too, wish to storm the lands of mortals reaping what is truly mine...but for now, I am but a wee spot of energy...

Clicky!

I heartily agree, excellent game. I have a feeling its gonna take me several play-throughs before I am done with it.

One downside to the game that I have found is that it is insanely hard. There are times that you get swarmed by enemies that can kill your party outright on their own and you just get to watch your party die in seconds over and over. It does get frustrating at times.

I'm going to wait for my new pc before I buy this, but I've been looking forward to it for a while now. Glad to hear good news about it, hopefully Mass Effect 2 will be just as awesome.
