Mass Effect was going so well for me when I first started playing it, but the game has come to a grinding halt for me on this planet where I have to do these driving sequences that lead to me going on foot to fight some boss. I've done this same sequence a total of 5 times unsuccessfully and it's really starting to piss me off.
I don't see why I can't save in the middle of these things, especially when I'm having to fight against floaty driving physics in terrain that has lava that insta kills you.
I finally managed to get to the last encounter on this planet the other night and the guys that spawned from the ship utterly destroyed my guys, so now it's back to the beginning again!!
I don't know if I have the heart to keep trying this over and over. This situation reminds of the older games that made you grind your characters for a while before you could go to a certain area. I can't help but think that I've found this sequence of events before my characters are ready to deal with it. When is a good time to go then? It's so frustrating.
