Mass Effect is this series of game everybody heard about. It has great story, great original universe, rich history, culture and a lot of stories to tell. It should be no surprise that after wonderful 1st game, Bioware did even better with the second one. The story is as compelling as the original game, gameplay is 200 times better (yeah, that was only factor that annoyed me a little in the first game), graphics are much improved, as well, it's just a perfect continuation of the series. The dialogues are really something that gets you immersed into this world! Some new races were added to the game, and favourite characters from Mass Effect 1 are back to help Shepard agains a new threat. Everyone sci-fi fan or not should try this amazing experience (of course only after finishing the first one, since you can import your decisions to the second and then third game!).

Less chore, more fun

andymanmessiah | Oct. 30, 2013 | See all andymanmessiah's reviews »

I hated Mass Effect 1. It was a slow, plodding third-person shooter with poorly implemented cover mechanics and a clumsy level-up system. Sidequests were largely boring and involved making drops on uninhabited planets that all look the same in your incredibly dubious space car (!) only to drive to point X and shoot person Y. The story was recycled from other BioWare games and had you go to four different areas in search for things that would eventually lead you to a fifth planet.

Enter Mass Effect 2. Refined shooting mechanics. No bull. This is a game that knows what it is. Sidequests are polished and all have their very own unique environments. Interaction with your party members have been greatly improved. Mass Effect 2 also makes a big point to let you explore the Mass Effect universe, something Mass Effect 1 completely failed other than a boring "encyclopedia" function. Also ME2 uses actual ammo instead of ME1's unlimited ammo schtick. That's another plus.

Complaints for this game from people who loved the first game is mostly of the "ME2 is not a RPG" nature. The Mass Effect games are not RPGs. They're shooters and the first game sucked.

Oh! And no goddamn elevators in this game either!

Mass Effect 2 Review

nibblemonkey | May 17, 2012 | See all nibblemonkey's reviews »

Mass Effect 2 is the Sequel to Mess Effect as is better than it by making improvements in very area if the game. One of the main differences is that the weapons in the game now use ammo rather than have a cooldown like they did in Mass Effect 1, at first this seems like a bad thing but as you play through the game you get used to it it will be better than Cooldown as it makes more sense. A lot of the customisation has been removed from the game but this is also a good thing as Mass Effect 1 had the problem of there being too much to change but everything is a lot simpler in Mass Effect 2. Overall Mass Effect 2 gives more of what made the original such a good game while changing small bits to make it better than the original.
