the review is so spot on. There's one thing the reviewer failed to mention as an obvious way to explain some similarities between Mass Effect and AP. Obsidian has very close ties with Bioware as the developer of Kotor2 and NWN2.
They are also the developer of Fallout: New Vegas. Let's hope they diverted resources from AP to work on F:NV
As a Wise man said if you think you can do better make your
own game.Also one has to remember there not bioware and made
the game on a smaller budget.I seem to recall it being
around 5 million compared to 100 million some company's spend.
yea..i have read the review and i have to say that Joe's dead on about the game(as always). matches my experience almost exactly.
Yeah, that's the weird thing though...I basically agree with all the bad reviews...it just didn't ruin the game for me...I still enjoyed it and I'm playing it through again, despite it's flaws...and I'll probably play it through AGAIN if/when they fix at least MOST of the bugs...
For example: Spoiler:
I thought this was amazing and it blew my mind. The best insight I can offer is, don't necessarily trust reviewers on games that sound interesting to you. Give it a rent if you can or wait for it to come down in price. My only disappointment is that now we probably won't see a fully fleshed out sequel to this game.
