Product Description

Platform: PlayStion3 | Edition: Standard | Format: Box

The sci-fi role-playing epic continues, as the Mass Effect story delves into darker territory and the fate of Commander Shepard, his crew and the entire galaxy.

The saga continues with even more action and intrigue
Enemies will keep on coming even with missing limbs
Mass Effect 2 will see the return of many familiar faces
Equip and upgrade many new weapon types and biotics

A streamlined combat system makes the game even more action-packed than before, with a new regenerating health system that means you spend less time fiddling with menus and more time shooting enemies. You can also direct teammates individually with a simple press of a button, giving you greater tactical control over every encounter.

The number of planets you can explore, and the complexity of the sub quests you find on them, has been greatly expanded from the first game - giving you a whole galaxy to explore at will. The original game was the most cohesive mix yet of action game and role-player and this sequel goes even further in combing both genres into one giant space opera.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Series of this Console Generation 21 Jan. 2011
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStion3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mass Effect on PS3...I never thought we'd see the day, but here we are. While I still dream that the first ME game would cross over to Sony's platform, the arrival of ME2 and the news ME3 will be on PS3 too makes up for it (as does a PS3 exclusive interactive short comic that helps you not only get to speed on the back story of the first game, but lets you make decisions to help shape your ME2 experience). You see, the beauty of ME is that your game plays out uniquely to you - if a character dies it ME1 he or she won't be there in ME2 and so forth (so for the uninitiated, keep your ME2 game saves!). It's not the same as playing the original (and if you get a chance to I fully recommend it), but it the interactive comic (created by Dark Horse no less) is the next best thing.

If you've played the original on the 360, you'll know what Mass Effect will offer you. If you haven't played Mass Effect, essentially the game is part shooter, part RPG, with plenty of ways of creating 'your' story around the main linear storyline - everything from Shepard's gender, how he/she looks (the character create is amazing) to how he/she chooses to talk to other characters (passive, aggressive, or not at all) is up to you. You can also choose your powers (you can be a soldier who relies on shooting to get them through, or vanguards or engineers, which enables you to have special biotic powers for example. The game is dialogue heavy, so if you're someone who skips cut scenes to get straight to the action, you're probably best off elsewhere. However, Bioware are masters at this kind of thing and ME2 excells in almost every way over its already incredible predecessor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 4 Jun. 2011
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStion3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is beyond what most games are these days. The graphics are incredible, the gameplay is incredible and the game time is beyond anything else. Along with Oblivion and Fallout 3, Mass Effect 2 is just a fantastic game with everything you could ever want.

I would recommend this game to anyone; though give up your social life for at least a couple of weeks because you just won't want to put the controller down.

So looking forward to Mass Effect 3; going to be ridiculously good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sci Fi Story In Decades 20 July 2011
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStion3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start off by saying that the gameplay for this is very good with maybe a little awkwardness to some bits of the combat; nothing that leaves an overly lasting impression.
But the majic of ME2 dosn't come from the combat, rather from the story and characters. Bioware are amazing at making this kind of game and it definitely shows, as just enough information is given out about your team mates through conversations over just the right amount of time to give a real sense of connection without it seeming phony and the result is that you will genuinely care about them.
The cahracter that you play as, Commander Shepard, is flwalessly cool and you can make them into whatever you want; not just by customisation at the start of the game but in the way that they act as well, as paragon and renegade speech options open up with increasing good or bad actions.
It is clear just by the first five minutes that alot of effort went into this game and the effect is a climax with a truly epic feel to it. I wont give anything away but if you have played through the whole game then the end of the last mission will not fail to put a smile on your face.
In summary i think that this game is a must have for fans of RPGs and Sci Fi and its solid combat system, character customisation and the deep immersive galaxy that has been created make this one of the best games on the market today.
Thanks for reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Class Effect 2: Class Harder 25 Jan. 2011
By John Clayton III VINE VOICE
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStion3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bioware continue to surprise. The single best game on Xbox last year makes the jump to PS3 and not only have Bioware done a fantastic job with the conversion, but they've actually delivered a far better product from what we saw last year in a number of ways... even though many of the game's shortcomings still remain.

I covered most of the game's finer details in my review of the Xbox version last year, but in brief: Mass Effect is a sci fi space opera that revolves around Commander Shepard(Either John or Jane, depending on your preference) and his/her efforts to uncover the secrets behind an ancient alien race known as the Reapers who are on the verge of returning to wipe out all life in the galaxy. So Shepard must recruit a team of sci fi archetypes to find a way to prevent the forthcoming invasion from happening. The story is pretty strong and well put together, with an impressively detailed universe to explore and a large cast of pretty distinct characters to interact with. This is easily the most polished game Bioware have ever produced.

The gameplay takes the primary form of a third person shooter clearly trying to follow to 'Gears of War' model of design: basically spending most of the fights hiding in cover waiting for an opening to take a shot. The implementation of "Biotic powers"(Basically space magic) adds a much needed additional level of depth to the combat, which is for the most part fairly linear in lay out and does little beyond funnelling you into endless shooting galleries for much of the game. Saying that, the combat IS fun and well put together, so it isn't really the chore I may be making it sound.
