Amazon.co.uk Review

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.

Key Features
  • Episode Two: Commander Shepard returns as the award-winning action role-player offers up even more intense storytelling and a whole new threat to humanity.
  • All action: All-new combat options make the game even more action-packed, with more versatile controls, more weapons and better management of allies.
  • Age of discovery: Even more exploration options than before, with more detailed side quests and many more developed planets to visit.
  • Good talker: Revamped conversation system is more dynamic than ever, with faster, more realistic dialogue and a new cinematic camera.
  • Ongoing story: If you have a save file from the first Mass Effect then the decisions you made will have an effect on the new game and old characters will remember you.
About the Developer: BioWare Corp.
This Canadian developer has become one of the most renowned makers of Western style role-playing games, with titles such as Baldur's Gate, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire and Mass Effect. Star Wars: The Old Republic will be their first massively multiplayer online game.

Product Description

Like all modern combat hard-suits, Terminus Assault Armour is environmentally sealed with an independent air supply for use in space and extreme planetary conditions, with an onboard "micro-frame" computer capable of running a suite of battle management software. To prevent detection by passive thermal sensors, body heat is channeled to the base of the feet, where it can be dispersed into the ground. The Terminus Assault Armour increases storm speed +10%. all weapons have +1 magazines of reserve ammo and increases shields +15%.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm converted 9 July 2011
By zoo keeper TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Most reviews, quite naturally, are from fans of ME1 and RPG experts. I thought I would add my two-pennyworth, as a player who had never experienced the original and who normally avoided RPG games and 3rd person shooters.

I was tempted to buy it after a surprisingly good experience with Avatar. I knew ME2 was going to be good from the moment the first load screens appeared. It had quality written all over it.

Fans of FPS are rather limited to Call of Duty and its clones these days. I love them but miss the depth offered by tactical shooters like Hidden & Dangerous and Raven Shield. This is a superb alternative.

It plays more like an interactive epic film than a game. I found myself absorbed in the conversations. Gone are the stilted text conversations of old RPGs. These are cinematic affairs and your choices of questions and answers blend seamlessly into the "script". You have an abbreviated choice of what your character will say, which makes it even more interesting and sometimes quite surprising! Funnily enough, I became so wrapped up in the story, the combat became almost secondary!

The combat is good, if not revolutionary. It's not on the epic scale of CoD but it's none the less challenging. Choosing your class of warrior makes a big difference to the experience. As a soldier, you rely totally on weapons. However, other classes offer the chance to use "Biotic" powers where you can blast opponents of their feet or lift them in the air and slam them against walls. It sounds daft but it saved my bacon a few times!

The voice acting is very good indeed. Some well known actors and actresses are behind the characters. Funnily enough, I thought the weakest actor was the male voice of Shepard (the main character). He sounded a bit monotone.

4.0 out of 5 stars A better story, but a better game? 4 Feb 2010
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a great fan of Mass Effect 1 and have played it through a number of times with different characters. However, even though I thoroughly enjoyed the game, it was never really an RPG. It was always a tactical shooter with an excellent story, great grpahics and a few RPG elements. I'd even go as far to say how bad some of the RPG aspects were (poor levelling system, awful inventory, limited character creation etc...).

Mass Effect 2 seems to have taken out all of the bits that irritated me (including those dull dull dull Mako missions) and created a much tighter playing experience. Every mission feels important to the main story and there were very few times I felt I was playing the same mission with a different background. Some of the missions were truly exciting and left me guessing what was going to happen next. The story is even better then the first. It introduces new twists to the story and I like the idea of seeing the galaxy's darker side. Even the characters seem more engaging this time round. I'll always miss Wrex, but most of the game's first charcaters left me cold.

It's not perfect however, but the faults are few and far between. I can imagine the planet scanning side game/quest for resources getting tedious, especially on a second playthrough. The inventory system, although much easier to use, could have made the player feel more involved. I just wasn't happy being told exactly what gun I could or couldn't use. Finally, I'm still undecided on whether DLC is a good thing or not. Time will tell.

Overall, I feel that some of the customer reviews on this page have been unfair. I think EA gets a great deal of unfair stick, but it is one of the companies that I think seems to take the risks (unlike Bioshock 2 or CODMW2).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good. Very good, even. But... 1 Feb 2010
By Lloobee
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
... But not truly great. ME1 Was truly awesome, but this is just good.

Apart from an annoying bug (sometimes the environment lets you walk where you shouldn't, but doesn't let you back, so you have to reload - this doesn't happen often but), it's hard to put my finger on why it is. The graphics are gorgeous. The characters seem well thought out, although *everyone* has a bit of a checkered past. Thinking about it, Jack is probably the most dysfunctional supporting character in any game since that burning mage in "planescape Torment" (showing my age there). The "paragon / renegade" actions halfway through conversations work well. There are some awesome locations - so far (being vague to avoid spoiling the plot) I thought the wreckage, the "ship's graveyard" and omega station are all brilliantly designed - even the nightclub was better done than in most (any?) game's I've seen recently. The citadel has also had a major overhaul too.

They've got rid of the really annoying inventory system, with all that shuffling around of weapons, upgrades and ammo. Now different ammo is a character ability, which actually works better than I expected.

The cutscenes are also brilliantly done; seen quite a few but my favourite so far is still very near the start of the game, as the lights get turned on in the Normandy hangar.

Oh, I haven't had to drive a six-wheeled thing that maneuvrers like a Volvo on black ice (with a layer of diesel on top) across vertical fractal landscapes either. That's a plus.

One other thing to like - the subtle (or in some cases less so) way that your old ME1 save games interact. Depending on what you did last time around all sorts of people show up. Or don't.

So why only four stars ? I don't know.
