Looks like this one's going to be rather good. Winner of Best RPG for E3 2006:

The gameplay, in regards to action, looks much more fun and polished here:

What an amazing game. Jack Shepard is a forceful badass and the character development is amazing. If you've ever liked an RPG you will LOVE this game.

So yeah, this game is the tits. Anyone else pick it up yet?

I've got a lvl 43 Soldier that I beat the game with on Normal and I'm currently working on a lvl 38 Adept and a lvl 8 Engineer, both on Hardcore. Adept is definitely the most baller class I've played with so far.

I'm only a couple hours in, but this definately looks like it has potential. The combat system seems difficult to handle; going to take a while to get used to.

Do the different dialog options ever actually affect the storyline? So far it seems like they all lead to the same thing, it's just a choice of whether or not I want to be an asshole about it.

Yeah, it'll probably be a solid 5 hours before you have an understanding of what everything does. I probably spent about 7 hours worth of time on Mako missions before I realized that I could hold the L trigger in and click the right thumbstick to zoom in like a sniper rifle with the Mako. What class are you using?

There's a lot of instances where it doesn't matter what you say and the only difference your conversation choices make are whether you get paragon or renegade points, but it has its fair share of twists. For example, the final boss fight can be completely bypassed if you play the conversation right (and your charm/intimidate abilities are leveled appropriately).

Infiltrator, or whatever it's called. The sniper class.

Yeah, I had to actually open the instruction book just to figure out how to switch weapons.

I may start playing this sometime this week, my roommate has it and I was looking for a good game to play.

The second time I played it (and beat everything) it took me 36 hours. And that is while knowing what I'm doing.

just got it and played as a vanguard by the time I got to the last lvl I was already lvl 50 so fully maxed vanguard/shock trooper. the end is defiantly epic, one of the most ever but in general game left me feeling a bit less than. I think its cause really the scripted story is minimal, 80% of the game is explore planets at random that have nothing really to do with anything. I would have liked to have seen more worlds that weren't just drop in your mako salvage, raid a structure that is from one of the 5 designs in the game, rinse then repeat for 30's or so hours. A good game and I was entertained not sure if I will ever reply it, oh wait by playing it I pretty much did just reply it a hundred times. There were some amazing parts and the depth of information was the most i have ever scene, and the 5 worlds that were scripted were great unfortunately that's like maybe 15% of the game. If you want a game based on repetitive level grind punctuated with points of brilliance this is the game for you

Hopefully in the next one, the side quest planets will be more elaborate other than just roll up in the Mako, collect some rocks and shoot a few bad guys. It would be pretty sweet to have a Mos Eisley type place where you can mingle with criminals and what not, stir shit up and gain side quests that way. Just something different than the Citadel where you had to deal with all the political bullshit.

Jellis-have you played the Bring Down the Sky DLC yet?
