Can't you just bring up the console (I read you modify an ini file to give it a keyboard binding) then say "stat fps"? It works in almost every other unreal based game.

Eh..on the verge of uninstalling this game.

Runs like a charm, looks phenominal, good story..just not my type of game at all. I don't have the patience for all the talk and the very weak firefights.

Yea the firefights are remotely reminiscent of GoW but way way worse. I enjoyed KOTOR much more.

Kotor is a much better game. Mass Effect is just weak, short game.

You can finish each planet in Mass Effect in about hour or two. In kotor it took much longer and there was more of it.

ME just feels rushed; it lacks that special thing that made a Bioware game a Bioware game.

After finishing Mass Effect, I won’t play it again.

Other Bioware games or related someway to Bioware

Number of play through:
BG: 2
BG2: 3 (i think)
NWN: 3
NWN expansion 1: 2
NWN expansion 2: 3
NWN2: Twice
NWN2 expansion 1: 0 (can't stand the recent camera change in patch 1.10+)
Kotor: 2
Kotor2: 1
Jade Empire: 2
Witcher: 2 (still in progress on the second go, two more planned after enhancement patch)

Bit sad to hear that its not as long as KOTR ...KOTR took some time and they really did a great job of connecting the quests/story...which made it surprisingly....long and draws you in...

No suprise its short since it was developed for the 360 in the first place, im sure this game would have been different if pc would have been first and console versions afterwards.

Because console games are always short, can't have a long console game!

That's right. Didn't you hear? MGS4 has 30 minutes of gampley and then a 90 minute cutscene. That's the whole game. On PC we would have had 60 minutes of gameplay and 180 minute cutscene. In your face console fanboy!
