What's your take on the whole realism aspect of this game (assuming of course that the sci-fi bits are real)? Is Shepard too much like Jack Bauer.
It's more real than games like Uncharted because those are supposed to be in our world with some myths being real. He kills up to thousand people using mostly hand guns and being alone. Not even trained for that shit. He's also like spiderman without the ability to shoot web.
At least Shepard is the most badass dude in the universe. His reputation is huge. And he's more than human. But you do die in this game. I'm playing on hard core but I'd assume I'd die as well on normal. That's what makes up for all the super dangerous things he does. They wouldn't of course pan out. You do die. You're not James Bond which doesn't get a flesh wound if he's not played by Daniel Craig. I still think some of the missions are a bit too far fetched. I can't complain because the game isn't advertising itself to something that it's not. But I'm struggling a bit with the consistency within the game. Most cities on Earth have been wiped out. That happens already but you're not there so who cares. And I read the codex'. Something like 1,64m people are harvested per day in one of these factory thingies that harvest humans. If they have 100 of those things it will take them a little over a month. They probably don't have that many on Earth alone but how much time ingame does the story span?
