Mass Effect for PC was released in North America today. I was considering the purchase, since the game was pretty loud, and it seems to get good reviews pretty much everywhere I look. I do want to know what you console players thought about it though, is it a good game? (For some reason it kind of reminds me of kotor) Or is it just the media controversy that made it popular, kind of like Manhunt 2, now that was a bad game.

almost all of the layouts from in game inventory to over all controls, it will play like a PC RPG and not like a ported RPG, like KOTOR was, graphics are being upgraded to PC level, some other shit.

I've actually never played KOTOR on pc, I take it it was bad? But what with me not owning one of the current gen consoles, i guess it's nice that the pc experience will be better adjusted for the proper console.

controls of KOTOR, KOTOR 2 and Jade Empire which were all Xbox to PC ports by pretty much the same company except KOTOR 2 which was made by Obsidian but was pretty much a direct release sequel of KOTOR all had the crappy console controls, thankfully I think they learned from this mistake, and is actually putting effort into the redesign.

Its a game well worth buying. I don't know what the changes are like, but if it was worth buying on console, then it'll definatly be worth buying on PC.
