Welcome to We Are Error’s newest audio series, Retro Reviews! Listen to Christopher Herman and Jon Romo review classic video games and discuss their impact on the entire industry since their original release.

This week Chris and Jon review BioWare’s 2007 sci-fi RPG, Mass Effect.

Taking place in a fictional version of the Milky Way Galaxy in the year 2183, Mass Effect follows Human Alliance Officer Commander Shepard and his/her crew’s mission to stop the rogue Spectre Saren Arterius from conquering the galaxy with an army of sentient machines known as the Geth. During his pursuit of Saren, Shepard learns of a far greater threat that could potentially wipeout all sentient life in the galaxy.
