Back from the rim and duly debriefed, Commander Kristan deemed his voyage on Bioware's hype-powered 360 battlecruiser Mass Effect an impressive eight out of ten experience for sci-fi action-adventurers. You can join in the 'healthy post-review debate' right here, if you dare.
An additional option is to join us in the stalls as Eurogamer TV presents more from Commander Shepard's planet-hopping antics deeper into the game. We've action across three worlds for you today, including vehicular combat, a monstrous stand-off and, crucially, light-fingered monkeys.
Eurogamer.fr steps out onto the dusty planes of Edolus, answering a distress call from a fallen vehicle. Arrival at the scene proves this distress wasn't missplaced: say hello to the giant sand beast and a mighty battle.
Eurogamer.de, meanwhile, goes offroad on Feros. The videos shows-off vehicular action in your tasty six-wheeler, with that top-mounted gun proving just the thing when it comes to blowing stuff up in a hurry. Add in a peek at custscenes, with the impressive chat system in play, plus some hand-to-hand combat and we're smokin'.
Finally, beaming at you direct from this fair isle, is a stop-off at the toxic world of Eletania. The video shows how you drop into hostile terrain strapped into your vehicle. The mission is to find a relay, which involves searching a monkey colony from top-to-bottom. And the thieving simian in question loves a game of hide and seek.
Mass Effect is out on Xbox 360 in Europe this Friday.
