Wait...I thought Mass Effect was a shooter?

I just picked up the Trilogy a few days ago, popped the first game in expecting a TPS...
Find out it's a turn-based AD&D battle system with a manual attack button?

Must admit...kinda disappointed...
Guess I should have done some research before purchasing.
I mean, I'm still going to play the games but my view of what they are has changed completely.
Playing - Far Cry 3, Vanquish, Retro City Rampage, Valkyria Chronicles, Monster Hunter FU, Chrono Cross, Quantum Conundrum, Catherine

You thought wrong lol. Even in its third iteration, its an RPG that just happens to use TPS as its combat system.

They're all RPGs/TPS, they just moved the camera in the 2nd and third ones.

Whats going on in this topic im so confused i cant stop dancing

Its a TPS, you can just pull the power wheel down anytime to pause the game and select powers. If you don't want to do that just hotkey the powers.

ME1 is still more of an RPG and has an awkward combat system. 2 and 3 are much more standard TPS fare.
What is faith then but persistent hope in the face of relentless doubt.
Now Playing: Far Cry 3, NFS Most Wanted, Final Fantasy 9.

Paying the game is the worse part of the game......

Who actually likes to pay for games? I love me a free game every so often.
