Battle of Aspho Fields

How to write a great review. One of the aspects I found fascinating was not even the story of the main characters, Dom and Marcus.

As much as I love Mass Effectnothing ever feels really urgent in those game despite there being an intergalactic war against od almost unstoppable force going on.
