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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best ever X-box game? 22 Nov. 2010
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a gamer for nearly 30 years, and during that time you remember fondly games that have moved you, enthralled you, and been just plain hard to put down and go to sleep. I won't list them all of course, but of recent games I would say you are talking games like the orginal Halo, World of Warcraft, and Modern Warfare 2 have been the types of games that fit the mold. Well Mass Effect 2 is for me another to add to that list of exceptional games, and I'll try and explain the reasons why here for you.

Bioware have been making RPG's for years now, and in their own words Mass Effect 2 is the first game they have thought they really got exactly what they wished they could do with an RPG, and I can see why. Everything from the graphics, sound, lighting, story, voice acting, world depth and history are all really and truely top class.

Bioware didn't quite get it right when they did Mass Effect 1, as while it was a good game it wasn't as polished in any area compared to Mass Effect 2. Certainly the flaws with terribly boring planet exploration for minerals using the nasty to control Mako got improved with Mass Effect 2, though even the new method of launching probes to scan planets from orbit can still get a little tedious. But its the one of the few tiny niggles you might have. Also they totally overhauled equipment/ammo and character skills, meaning you don't end up carrying a million weapons you need to sell, and you have less, but enough options of how you want to spec your character.

The next thing they did was to add more characters with Mass Effect 2, and gave you a lot of conversations to have with them if you choose, including options to interupt if your paragon/renegade skill is high enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars A near perfect game 29 Mar. 2010
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played Dragon Age earlier this year, I had heavy doubts that anything over the next year or even the next five to ten years could top it. Then comes along Mass Effect 2, the sequel to Bioware's epic Sci Fi RPG, which literally blew me away. Right from the shocking start, you know you're going in for an unforgettable ride.

The first thing that strikes you while you play Mass Effect 2 is how smooth the game plays. They've vastly improved the combat system from the first game, giving it a more flexible, action orientated experience. Another good thing Bioware's done here is scrapping the Mako completely. Remember the slightly tedious moments in the first Mass Effect where you had to explore different barren planets with a vehicle that controlled almost as bad as Bush's America? It's all gone now, giving the game a much more streamlined, straightforward experience. The conversation system's also been improved since the first game. At certain occasions, your character Shepard, will say things without your command, making his character someone you can bond with even better than the first game. And not to forget the interrupt system, which certainly makes the conversations you have a lot more interesting when the option to use it pops up on the screen. Something else worth mentioning is the slightly trimmed down RPG elements for the game. While in the first game, you had a full inventory window, numerous skills to be upgraded at your own choice and weapons and armour available to customize at your will, Mass Effect 2 rids this system completely. It may seem like a risky move at first, but the result of doing so really does make the game flow a lot faster (which is important when you consider the importance of combining the story with the gameplay).

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest game ever??? 2 Feb. 2010
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having not played the first game I had no idea what to expect from ME2. However after just a couple of hours playing time I could only come to one conclusion, this is the best game I have ever played. From the very first mission it draws you in and won't let go.

I spent the first half an hour or so just wandering round the Normandy (the ship on which you are based for the game), exploring the four decks which house your own living quarters/office, the armoury, the tech lab, flight deck & cargo hold among other things. The first things that struck me about the Normandy were the graphics and attention to detail, things which are carried on throughout the game making this one of the most visually beautiful games to date.

The game starts with you assembling a team of various different alien races to assist in the main mission of stopping the Collectors, which takes up a number of hours gameplay in itself. Within a couple of hours the missions are building up rapidly to ensure you always have a vast selection of missions to choose from. Some of these can be completed in a matter of 10 minutes where others can take well over an hour, meaning the game should be a very long affair, which trust me is no bad thing.

The only thing I found slightly confusing initially was navigating the various universes, but once you've worked it out it becomes second nature (and presumably if you have played the first game you already have an advantage). The combat controls are surprisingly easy to come to terms with considering how many different things there are to do.

Overall this is a fantastic game for which I can't find one bad thing to say. Since purchasing the game I've struggled to put it down. It has drawn me in like no other game has for as long as I can remember.
