We went through the many, many showcases and presentations that made up this year’s E3 season and put together our list of the games that impressed us the most.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition Review in Progress - Mass Effect (2007)

With the release of Mass Effect Legendary Edition we’ll be revisiting the newly remastered sci-fi epic one entry at a time - beginning with the iconic original. And with that, read on to discover what it's like to revisit a beloved classic a decade or so after its debut.

A classic for a reason.
The more involved the character creation is in an RPG, the more we view our controllable protagonist as a “blank-sheet”. Something that harkens back to the pen-and-paper days of the genre’s roots. The idea of a set in stone character -- with their own pre-defined look and back-story -- is more in line with a cinematic and linear tale, where RPG then morphs into action-RPG and character choice and customisation becomes limited to combat styles and a few narrative branches to traverse.

Mass Effect’s Commander Shepard follows a somewhat just like this set-in-stone path, a military commander that becomes the first human to become a Spectre. A one-person intergalactic Timothy Olyphant, of sorts, acting autonomously on behalf of the Galactic Council of races. With ancient alien artefacts, the return of a warring race of AI called the Geth, a rogue Spectre to hunt down, and a mystery that spans the very existence of sentient life in the Milky Way, the story isn’t exactly malleable. But Shepard is.
