Mass Effect 2
The best game of this Generation!
While it differs greatly from ME1, Mass Effect 2 really stands out as a marvel and an example of what modern games should be. To those unfamiliar with the game, think a mixture of both star wars and star trek. The graphics are excellent and the fighting mechanics are excellent. The gameplay lasts for roughly 24 hours in a complete playthrough, but the real lasting appeal lies in the games DLC. Some of the best DLC ive played in any console game. A must play for any hardcore gamer or fan of linear RPG's. For twenty bucks theres no better deal on consoles!
a huge let down to what it was
this game is good BUT they changed WAY to much from the first one less weapons, less powers, less missions the one thing that is cool is the save importing.
The Dark Side of a Galaxy
The next instalment to Bioware's art "Mass Effect" series. The second instalment sees the player's Shepard gather a team to prepare for the Reapers. The player will immediately feel and see the improvements in the game from the first one. Graphics are better, gameplay is different, feels more like a shooter. Sound is still crafted beautifully. In Mass Effect 2 the player sees the dark side of bioware's universe. What I mean by that is that players dive into more complex social issues and see the cesspool of corruption, evil, and instability. It is up to you to choose whether to destroy it or join it.
this game series is by far my favorite not even for being the best game of all time but for the save game tranfer. The ability to make desicions in the game that will carry over and you can see how it evolved. This game gives me everything i look for expect for one thing. The mining is tedious but honestly it pays off soo much later when you need those resources so its worth it. I throughly enjoyed this game and will be beating it again once i beat Mass Effect the original again to see what else i can carry over.
All around great
Mass effect 2 is a great game. The invintory issue for me1 is fixed, and the mako is gone. Though firing prodes to mine resoucres may be tedious, this game is still a stellar rpg.
Worst Game This Year
The graphics for this game on both ps3 and xbox 360 were exactly the same pretty much as the games they made for original xbox. The game itself is extremly boring. The sound was probably the worst thing about this game. I bought this game and got about half way through and sold it back to futureshop 2 days later.
The closest thing to becoming a movie star!
Other than joining the ranks of celebrities who actual star in epic sci-fi adventure movies, Mass Effect 2 will immerse you so deep into the adventure you will feel as though the movie cameras are centered on you. The story and cinematography are top notch! The music, sound effects and graphical design set the atmosphere for a true diversion from your day-to-day reality, sending you on a space faring epic quest across a Universe as wide as many light years.
Mass Effect 2 looks great
This Game Looks Amazing with all of the great graphics
Best Game of 2010
I would have to say this is one of my favorite RPG's of all time, the graphics were insane, the gameplay is fun and realistic, they have really upgraded biotics in the game from Mass Effect 1, the game is long adn storyline is fantastic, in the first game the only class I enjoyed playing as were either Sentinel, Engineer, or Soldier, in Mass Effect 2, all of them were insane to play as, I highly recommend this game to any gamers who enjoy RPG's, graphics, storyline and characters. A MUST BUY!
One of the best games ever.
Now firstly I have to say that if you haven't played the first Mass Effect then the game will not be the same great experience it is for the die hard fans, don't get me wrong even if you are new to the series you will love it of that I have no doubt. From it's explosive, jaw dropping, and emotional beginning all the way to the shocking climax of the main story arc you will be enthralled (I honestly couldn't stop playing other than to eat and have bathroom breaks), the game feels like you're watching the best sci-fi epic of all time only instead of everything being on rails and you can only watch you make every decision; all the way from little comments to huge galaxy changing decisions. Mass Effect is all about choice, even getting the option in the beginning to make your characters gender and have the option to choose what they look like. The biggest thing that is amazing about this series is that it is the first game that I know of that allows you to import your previous character (what they look like, decisions they made...everything) to the next game in the series, to me that is groundbreaking for videogames. The main focus in the sequel is definitely on the crew members (the plot is to save the galaxy from a new threat, don't get me wrong) Mass Effect 2 has created the most diverse and interesting group of characters I've ever seen, the great thing is no one is similar to anyone else; all the way from a psychotic convict to a brilliant scientist, to a religious assassin...etc. I could go on and on and still I wouldn't be able to properly explain just how brilliant they are. Now I have to address the huge difference with this title from the first; combat. The new ammo/shooting system is amazing, while this is definitely still an RPG at heart Bioware (the developers) has beaten so many games that revolve around being a shooter at their own game. It's very hard to explain how it's different from other third person shooters, but just know that it is without a doubt one of the best Shooter/RPG's ever. If I still haven't convinced you to buy this game then look anywhere on the internet at other reviews of this game, it has a 10/10 across the board from every reviewer that I've seen. Just know that this is a game that any real gamer would want in their collection.
