Mass Effect

Introduction

Have you ever played a game that takes place in the Milky Way galaxy in the year 2183? Well, Mass Effect will take you there with the experience of being a Commander Shepard who stop an agent from bringing up Reapers' galactic invasion. BioWare develops Mass Effect and Microsoft Game Studios is in charge of publishing the game. The Xbox 360 version of the game originally released in 2007, and later, the game converted to the Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 3 respectively in 2008 and 2012. In general, Mass Effect 1 has witnessed a positive view. Therefore, I highly recommend you to play this game, and you won't regret.

How to enable console?

If you want to have an advantage in Mass Effect by using the console, then then follow these steps:

  1. Find and open Documents folder of the game.
  2. Click BioWare > Mass Effect > Config on your computer respectively.
  3. Open BIOInput file with Notepad.
  4. Find the line Engine.Console and under it add the line ConsoleKey=Tilde. Save it.
    (Set the BIOInput file to read-only to make sure the console is enable because Mass Effect boots may overwrite the file).
  5. Open the console by pressing the ~ key and typing the desired cheats.

NOTE: If ConsoleKey=Tilde doesn't work, you can change it with ConsoleKey=Tab or ConsoleKey=CapsLock as the console key. You can open the console by press Tab or CapsLock .

More about Mass effect

Gameplay

As I started earlier, Mass Effect is a single-player action role-playing game, and you play the game in a third-person. At the beginning of the game, you do a character creation such as gender, appearance, or military background. Moreover, the game has six different classes for you to select, and each of them also has different skills, talents, or efficiency in some weapons. At a certain point in the game, you can enhance your character into 1 of 2 specializations. In general, Mass Effects overworld is a galaxy map. Therefore, you have to go exploring and seeking to complete missions. There are many ways to get some experience points such as defeating enemies. Getting levels up is the only way to develop your Talent points which can be used for the development of your character.

About the combat, the game is based on two members squads, and the game's artificial intelligence controls other members in the squad. Moreover, you play Mass Effect 1 with a third-person shooter, and the game also features a cover system. The game gives you many kinds of weapons to use. Still, your character has a health bar, which you can use Medi-gel to heal, and shield (automatically restore). You can revive your teammates if they die, but if you die, you have to start the game again from the last saved point.

Conclusion

Mass Effect is an excellent way to entertain, go for exploration, and experience many amazing combats. If the console is what you need to use, then finding the BIOInput file, change it a bit, and you can enable the console as you like. Have fun with the game!
