If you started playing Mass Effect 1 as part of the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition you may have noticed that there are two modes available for you to play through. The two modes that you are given a choice for is Classic Mode and Legendary Mode. Each mode is different in their own ways and will give you a different experience for playing the game. The story will stay the same, but leveling up will be a bit different.
What is Classic Mode?
Classic mode will allow you to level up through a total of 60 levels. What this means is that you will level up as normal and go through a total of 60 levels with a less distribution of talent points over those 60 levels. This mode is similar to the original way you would play Mass Effect as if you were playing the original game not a part of the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition.
What is Legendary Mode?

Legendary Mode is a lot different than Classic Mode. In Legendary Mode there are only a total of 30 levels that you can level up through and it takes a little bit longer to level up. However, since there are only 30 levels and it takes a little bit longer to level up, you will have a much bigger distribution of talent points over those 30 levels. Basically, you get twice as many talent points and twice as many slots to spend your points on. This is so that you won’t fall behind compared to the Classic Mode.
Is there any major difference in modes that will affect the gameplay as a whole?
No matter which mode you decide to choose, it all comes down to what you prefer to see visually. In all reality, there is no difference. Sheppard level 60 in Classic mode is the same Sheppard that is level 30 in Legendary Mode. Same game, just different amount of levels in each. If you rather there be 30 levels to level up through then choose Legendary Mode. If you rather there be 60 levels to level up through then choose Classic Mode. Just don’t forget, no matter which game mode you choose, the only difference is how quickly you are going to level up through those particular sets of levels. The overall game and story will always be the same.
Now that you know the differences between Classic Mode and Legendary Mode, the choice is purely up to you. Regardless of what game mode you choose, you are going to have a really fun experience that will leave you entertained for hours.
