*This is only my second review so some feedback would be nice so I know how to improve my reviews in the future!*

I'd say I'm quite a fan of the Mass Effect universe. It's huge and is filled with amazing planets, alien races and ancient evils just begging to be used on another medium. When I heard about a Mass Effect anime I was ecstatic! I really liked Halo legends when it came out so why shouldn't I have been excited? How brutally disappointed I was...

The story... like I said The Mass Effect universe has so much potentia,l it's great source material for an anime. read more

I'm more than just a mass effect fan. I'm a massive mass effect fan! I've probably played the trilogy through about 6 times by now. Time well spent.
I saw this quite a while ago, but I will do my best to give my impressions.

And I'm glad read more

Mass effect is one of the most in depth gaming universes out there, and paragon lost certainly honors that heritage. To understand this anime you must play the games first or you will be lost. The anime builds on the background of James Vega, one of your companions from mass effect 3, playing the game you build a sense of comradery with him and he tells you one of his war stories, and paragon lost builds upon hist tale. It's one thing to hear it told in the game, but now you can watch it all unfold and truly understand the difficulty of his decision.

Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, the Mass Effect franchise alone has a lot of creditably, good and bad, but for the most part a lot of people know of it. This would be the second movie that BioWare has released for their games and unlike Dragon Age this movie fairs a lot better.

Story 9/10: Here the story is a very believable scenario, it is a bunch of space marines fighting in a space colony against an unknown alien forces. Genre wise this would action and drama with a lot of action but very deep dramatic moments. What is interesting is that is read more
