Just got through Mass Effect 1. Great game overall.
I wish I was able to play this before I played 2. It probably would have been a much better experience.
The story was great.
I liked being able to equip party members with different gear (but the customization of 2 for Shepard was better).
2 had much better combat, and better party members and more interactions with them.
The side missions were boring and a bit tedious, but the main missions and story were great. All the side missions were the same and involved trying to get that car up mountains, then going into the same exact bases/mines. They did such a great job making all the planet surfaces look different and cool, it was very disappointing to go into the same bass over and over again. Still, I think the Mako was more fun then the Hammer head. at least the Mako did not explode every time a Geth breathed on it. (and Geth don't even breathe!)
Now to import and go through 2 again!
