Man I hate it when developer's start talking as if they're reinventing the wheel. Choice has been the main theme of countless games for years now. The game looks ok but nothing groundbreaking.

blue dudes on a alien planet. A movie.

It's amazing how they can take such a cool Idea, with such a unique universe, and make a seemingly utterly generic game :(

Yes, I hate that too. But you have to admit that there is something wrong with James Cameron. The man is becoming more and more megalomaniacal.
So, what else can Ubisoft do than say the same as he is proclaiming?

The graphics look nice, but not 'wow'. The gameplay looks very generic especially playing as a soldier (Lost Planet copy paste). The story? Who knows?

    Sdarts But there's just no explanation for: "At some point soon, we better get busy making babies." This is simply just really terrible writing. (3 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @Sdarts: I know, it's too much. I think I'm starting to understand why some of key people at Bioware left. They saw a shitstorm comin and they jumped ship. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts ME:A is a disgrace and disrespect to the ME franchise and everyone that worked on the first 3 games, and everyone that was/is a ME fan. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But the really, truly worst part is the writing and dialogue. I'm no writer, not even an aspiring to be one, and I'm very confident I wouldn't write this badly. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @MikeManiac61: I watched it a 2nd time, Jesus Fuck! What happened to BioWare? And most important, what the fuck happened with QA in gaming? I swear QA is the least desirable job in the gaming industry (4 Hours ago)
