Mass Effect impressions

Ok. First, I love me some Bioware games. Bioware has made some of my all time favorites, so I'm a Mass Effect fanboy even though I've barely started the game. Here's my thoughts so far:
  • The 'tutorial' level could be better. Mass Effect throws you into the action, and unless you are being very careful, or are playing a soldier (more on this later), things can get a little frustrating.
  • Play a soldier if the combat is getting you down. I started with a Vanguard, and trying to take out hovering drones with a pistol or shotgun was not much fun. With a soldier, you've got every weapon group available to you. Setting up for some long range sniping can greatly reduce the difficulty of some encounters.
  • The game is fun! Bioware nailed the ScottyAttention formula with games like KOTOR, and Mass Effect continues this tradition.
I just got to the Citadel for the first time, so I have a long, long way to go, but I'm really enjoying things so far. I'm already tempted to play through the game a second time, as an Adept next time maybe. We'll see.
