Can anyone give me some general tips on ME 1. I gave up shortly after getting the freedom to travel around because I would get wrecked. The battle where you meet up with the psychic (forgot what called - the 'mage' alien female race) I reloaded so many times. In general I found it hard to maneuvre all my companions to cover in real time so in hard battles they would die fast. Their shield powers I never knew when to activate and lasted short time. I was a sniper forgot what they are called. I used that shield scrambler thing when off cooldown and used a gun when in between cool down. Of course I tried to snip everything I could, but sometimes couldn't. So anything you can think of. I was on easy difficulty too. The confidence builder battles I could handle it was just the tough ones I had trouble.
