      If you like RPG's, it's kick ass.

      There's some FPS action in there too.


      The only think I don't like is you can't blip through the dialog. I've restarted several times going through just the first "section" deciding I want to do somethign different, and it gets old in that sense, but now that I'm in new territory, it's pretty kick ass.

      I'd say it's better than oblivion. Not sure on Oblivion's expansion pack, but in terms of the original game, it's better...

        I heard that game was just completely filled with bugs to the point where it was nearly unplayable. i know Biowares forums were going ****************ing nuts there for a while about it.

        Whats the latest?

          I think it's pretty good, playability-wise. Some frame rate issues, but nothing during combat that I've seen.

          Plus you can turn off the motion blur and some other effect and eliminate it quite a bit. I've not bothered, but that's what I've read.

              I have it. Only played a little bit of it so far though. definitely awesome visuals. was a little slow and tedious at first, but I wasn't really in the mood for sitting down and getting into it at the time. I'm sure it'll be awesome when I've got some more time to play it

                Seriously, just go and get it. It's worth it, if it's your kind of game.

                  The thing that bugs me about the slow/tedious part, is the time for transports, elevators, and dialog.

                  That said, the dialog is well done. if you move the stick (and just not hit anything) you can start making your next choice before the other person is done speaking. Makes the dialog more movie-like.

                  This game is more like an interactive movie, to be honest. Visuals are closer to the Final Fantasy Movie than most games.


                  The past two nights I've been going to bed at 2:30AM and 1:30AM, only to get up at 6:30AM...normally I go to bed around 10:30PM - but there's enough of a hook of "what that?" that I keep playing

                      I've really enjoyed it so far.
                      Just don't buy it expecting an action game, I think you'll find it way too slow.

                        i love RPGs, and i love dialog

                        i was pissed at how much plot they TOOK OUT of Gears to make it a straight action title

                          Given that, you'll love it.


                          That being said, the action parts are pretty crazy. I beat GRAW-II on medium difficulty, and have this on normal, and my ass was getting handed to me by some pirates on one planet - gith too on another planet.

                          Granted, it was like 10 of them to 3 of me, and our weapons weren't as good...

                          I beat that area only to find out that a skill wasnt high enough to get some of the goods... =/

                              I need to try out Mass Effect still.

                              If you love RPG's, check out The Witcher. Personally I think it's the best RPG to come out in a long time.
