GameBanshee gives Mass Effect an 8.5

Here is yet another Mass Effect review this time from GameBanshee:
Combat is also fun. Despite the game taking place hundreds of years in the future, people still only use regular guns (pistols, shotguns, automatic rifles, and sniper rifles) for combat, and so all battles take place at range. In a nice touch, characters can use cover (such as doorways and crates) to hide from enemies, and only expose themselves when they fire their weapons. The interface even handles this effectively. For example, if you hide at the edge of a doorway, then the camera changes its focus to the doorway rather than your character, giving you a good view of your enemies. On the downside, since combat only involves guns firing bullets, it’s not especially fun to watch the battles, and sometimes it’s difficult to tell what’s going on. Also, the game uses level scaling to match enemies to your character, but the algorithm for this doesn’t work very well, and the game gets easier the further you get into it.
You mean there is no lasers plus it has level scaling?
