Has Anyone Tried Mass Effect Galaxy?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Has Anyone Tried Mass Effect Galaxy?

Watedo!!!

I got an iPhone 3GS today and right when I logged into the apple store I noticed the game. I never even heard of this before but it is only 2.99 at it doesn't look that bad. Has anyone tried it? What type of game is it? Would you recommend?

Never played it, but I remembered seeing the review on IGN, it got a 5.0:

Thanks man. I'm liking it alot. I wanted to get the Palm Pre but it's not available in Canada :(

I have one too. Palm pre is the best phone...but only after the Iphone 3gs. I've compared them extensively. It is very slight though, palm has built a real winner. What makes the Iphone just beat it to a bloddy pulp is it's immensely well supported app store.

If you're a gamer and are looking to game you have no buisness with a palm pre. 3gs is the way to go in terms of phones. I remember seeing it talked about at e3 but they didn't talk about it during the segment but they said it's not a 3d graphic game. It's like 2d animation. Mass effect galaxy that is.

I'm also waiting for the Palm Pre in Canada. They just recently announced a GSM version for O2 in Europe so it should be (hopefully) less than a year before we get it here on Rogers (sigh...). But after a year of waiting for the Pre competition has opened up sooooo friggen much that it's hard for me to decide on a phone anymore.

Check out the new SE Xperia (still no firm model number) running Android with their new Rachael UI. The model is going to have a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor... on a cell phone! That's crazy! Do want!

Alas, I digress. Enjoy the phone man! With today's smart phone market you really can't go wrong with any choice. As for Mass Effect Galaxy - according to reviews it's quite mediocre but the name definitely caught my attention. lol

That looks pretty freaking sweet too!!! but like you said, and this is the biggest reason I bought the iPhone, it`s got soooo many applications that currently no other phone can compete with its amount of software. But from a hardware standpoint, the Pre is wayyyy better, I tested one out not too long ago, but  they are exclusive to Sprint. I`m surprised Europe is already getting it and we have not yet.



So noone's played it? I have an Iphone 3GS on route to me and I want to know whether to pick this up?

Does it adequately contribute to the story of the titles?



starcraft - Playing Games = FUN, Talking about Games = SERIOUS

It is quite possibly the worst game that I have ever played, do not buy it.

Yes, the presentation is quite good, the story hasn't done much so far, and I am just going to give up on the game and read it on wikipedia. The fundamental problem with it is that it is just a shooter, with 3 special moves, and it is not a fun shooter. You control where you character moves by tilting, and he automatically shoots at the person you lock on to, but it is entirely unresponsive. I was playing yesterday, and holding the iPod at vertically, and it took about 5 seconds to respond. It is just plain awful
