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%.

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 I'm converted 9 July 2011
By zoo keeper 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.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Every fifty thousand years a race of sentient alien starships, the Reapers, scour the Milky Way of organic life for unknown reasons. The time of their return is at hand and the races of the Galaxy are not ready. It took the combined firepower of several entire fleets to destroy the first Reaper scout, Sovereign. In the process the Citadel - seat of the Galactic Council - was so badly damaged that repairs will take five years to complete.

The Council believes the threat is over, and discounts reports that an entire fleet of hundreds of Reaper ships is lurking beyond the Galactic Rim. Their scepticism grows when Commander Shepard, the only human to know the true extent of the threat, is apparently KIA. But, two years later, Shepard resurfaces, now working for the Cerberus organisation outside the authority of Earth or the Council. Shepard now has the resources to carry the fight to the Reapers and starts by attacking one of their servant species, the Collectors, who have been raiding human colonies in the lawless Terminus Systems. But Shepard's allegiance with a borderline terrorist organisation threatens to alienate his former allies and undermines his attempts to expose the scale of the Reaper threat.

Mass Effect 2, released in 2010, is the middle volume of a computer roleplaying trilogy. Unlike a lot of such series, which are normally developed ad hoc based on the sales of the previous game, the Mass Effect series was always envisaged as a trilogy with events building from one game to the next and culminating in an epic finale (to be seen in Mass Effect 3, released next month) which pits the entire Galaxy against the invading Reapers on a massive scale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mass Effect 2 31 Oct. 2010
By Al
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played Mass Effect 1 completely through 7 times i was eagerly awaiting this installment and was not dissappointed.

The graphics are upgraded and the characters have much more depth. Although there are many more squad members to use this time around, each one feels important and useful and has unique dialogue on different planets and encounters.

Gameplay is a lot smoother and whilst missions are a little more linear there are none of the tedious Mako driving missions. There are however a few tedious areas of number 2 that you have to go through if you just want to get on and play. If you haven't played the first game then you have to stick with the set storyline (Wrex and Ashley are dead, the alliance loves you, the council hates you etc.) and in order to progress financially you have to go probe farming planets which can be a little dull.

One very important thing that must not be forgotten is that the standalone Mass Effect 2 you purchase is not the finished game. Bioware have stated very clearly on their forums that they wanted to bring out Mass Effect 2 to prevent the wait for their fanbase and then to add DLC packages to build the story up for Mass Effect 3. Whilst this may not be everyone's cup of tea i prefer things like this as i can play the game several times all the way through with different content each time.

This is 1 of only a handful of games that have kept me really fixated and can play over and over again (KoTOR, Final Fantasy and Dragon Age: Origins being the others).

Much improved graphics and game mechanics from the first. Slightly more linear in approach, perhaps, but it's improved in more ways than it's declined.

I enjoyed Mass Effect 1 but was only able to give it 3/5 due to some pretty annoying flaws. I’m glad to say that most of those flaws have been eradicated in ME2. Read more
