My love-hate relationship with Mass Effect 1
The moment where I meet the love of my life, Ashley Williams. London Philharmonic soundtrack. Most loving story in the entire gaming scene (for me)
So I just keep reminding myself that this is my favorite game of all time.
It's just that this 2007-year-old game has not aged well. This is NOT a remastered version. They just added some textures.
This does not feel like the work of a big gaming company. More like the work of modders from nexusMods.
Everything about this is soo old! I got killed in this game more than I can imagine. It's because of how the weapons to shoot, the cover system that does not work, and the character movements.
The worst part: companions. They are useless, and if you give them cover commands etc it's even worst.
The game keeps telling you to add points to skills as you see fit to better suit the job. NO. They are the dumbest I.A. ever....they don't shoot, they can't run. can't fallow me, the cover is useless. So after getting killed over and over and over I decided to add first all the points into armor and Fitness, basically turning all m,y guys into tanks. At least this way they stay alive.
Overall, I am so disappointed with what Bioware did with this remastered.
Weird, I had the opposite experience with the Remaster and I think its decently made. 'did not regret buying it and spent a good ~240+ hours with it till I finished the whole serie'
As in, I had no issues with the game whatsoever and this was my third time playing the entire serie.
1x full original/vanilla, 1x Nexus Modded with visual mods and such and 1x Remaster and imo Remaster is the best way to play them.
Remaster is more than just texture mods and some fixes here and there, might not that noticeable but if you go from original to Remaster its a pretty big difference imo.
If you think it did not age well, try the original ME 1 with no mods and check that aged gameplay out.
I did play 'only' on Veteran difficulty and there I did not notice my team mates being useless either, sure they can die here and there but nothing too bad or annoying.
Most of the times I died due to my careless gameplay since I went with a Vanguard this time and sometimes just charged into too many enemies.
