biowareBesides Command & Conquer: Red Alert, EA was also showing off an early version of BioWare's Mass Effect at E3 today.

Mass Effect is a critically acclaimed action role-playing game that first appeared on the Xbox 360 in 2007. The iPhone version of the game is called Mass Effect Galaxy and offers fans of the game some additional story connecting Mass Effect and the unreleased Mass Effect 2.

The iPhone game offers similar dialog story telling as the original game, but is a top-down shooter for the combat sequences.

An EA representative walked us through the game at this early stage:

  • Anthony

    Hmm , nice to have some additional Mass Effect content but this game is a bit underwhelming. I hate games where I have to tap on a target to shoot at it, thats just me. I would rather the onscreen control buttons and have to aim at least a little bit myself. I will still buy it as it will be cheap but I was hoping for something a little more satisfying. Again just my opinion.

    It sucks, how can they throw dirt at the mass effect name with something like that.

    Ehhhh, looks like a crappy version of Dark Raider.

    Legion of Amon would have been a better template.

    I am really looking forward to this, but I must say that I am almost 100% positive that the accelerometer controls are going to be a massive bust. I hope they give options with changing controlling configurations or I might not even try it. :/ Its a shame because its Mass Effect too...

    Story might be interesting, but that gameplay looks pretty terrible.

    This is going to be sweet. With games like this (Peggle, Assasins's Creed) the Iphone is finally getting games that I can sit back and play for multiple hours on end. It's taken awhile... but nice
