I didn't like it. Maybe you did? Tell me what I'm missing here.
Besides graphics or alien sex.
Made it about 8 hours in ... I'm not sure why this game isn't catching my attention. The combat system is decent. The conversation system and dialogue are generally interesting. The soundtrack and graphics are fantastic.
Maybe part of it is KOTOR deja vu -- where I feel like I've already played this game, just now it has new names and graphics. The universe lore is fairly complex and well-developed, but it also feels like a transparent substitution of Star-Wars-into-Mass-Effect.
Maybe it's the characters? I don't feel personally invested in the main character at all. The flat delivery of lines doesn't help -- maybe the female lead is more impassioned than the male reading-the-phone-book voice? The NPCs are a little stiff and the conversations are stilted book passages.
I don't know. So far I stopped playing a few weeks ago, went on vacation, and don't have any desire to really finish the game now. I'll keep plugging away, bit by bit. I just thought I'd be a lot more addicted to this.
Greg needs to come home. Forget about Electronic Arts and those meh Command & Conquer games. Old-school GS must reunite under the banner of good. Get Kasavin back on the saddle! HE MUST REVIEW AGAIN.
But yeah. Congratulations to the Giant Bomb folks for upstaging Gamespot and for giving CNET a giant middle finger. (In a productive way.) Site is looking great on Day One.
