""I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favourite online store""
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

While not the most original title to grace the gaming world, ME2 delivers brilliantly on all fronts. What impressed me most was the impeccable detail given to this vast universe. The combat is near perfect and graphics faultless.

ME2 gives the player considerable control over their character, the plot progression and more importantly… the romance. With too many choices to make in a single play through, you'll definitely be back for more!

"GOTY for sure!!"
5 stars"

All I have to say is OMG if you loved the first one or are just a fan of RPG's in general then this is a must have. The presentation is fantastic 10/10. Game play is much smoother(less technical issues) and you get into the action a lot quicker. The best part is you can import your character from the first Mass Effect and you get bonuses + the decisions you made reflect on the story. The game is never the same each time you play.

Can not wait for the third game!!

"Gripping story, believable characters and real cause and effect"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

ME2 is a detailed role playing game. It also happens to be the best plot driven over-the-shoulder shooter I've ever played. Imagine the combat gameplay of the old Dark Forces games from Lucasarts combined with the plot of Joss Wheedon's Firefly TV series (yes, it's that good – though not quite as funny), voice acting from the cast of Battlestar Galactica (and half of Hollywood), and the atmosphere of X3 Reunion and you have an idea of how this game will impress you.

This game is deeeep. Your crew members have believable back stories, relationships progress and your game choices actually matter. One wrong decision and the lives of people hang in the balance – people who you really come to know over the course of the game. At one point I realised that I'd made a terrible error of judgement, but the consequences were only made apparent several days later when I discovered that time actually passes in this game and it was far too late to do anything. I paid the price for the rest of the game and this will likely affect the story of ME3 also – but life goes on and there is often no “right” choice in ME2. It is also refreshingly long, with time to explore and build relationships with all and sundry along the way. The level designers managed to keep the player (and team) pointed in the right direction most of the time without giving you the feeling of being “walled in”. This is a lot more than can be said about most action games these days.

The best example of the over-the-shoulder RPG genre I've seen to date. Five stars.

"A must have.." Purchased on Mighty Ape

An absolute gem of a game not to be missed. Immersive story-line with well developed characters and while a bit old now, stunning visuals that can be customised to suit most modern machines. Players are sure to develop a favourite character. This game is a must play if you are considering purchasing ME3 when it is released in November. Don't be fooled by the “Classic” tag on the game, nothing is left out, it just means the manual is on the disc rather than in hardcopy. Go for it.

"Amazing in every aspect"
5 stars"

This is one of those few games that gives you adrenaline rushes. Especially if a huge mech is slowly approaching while you hide behind cover with a shotgun with increnary ammo at the ready. The HUD is easy to use, the graphics are amazing, and it is so much smoother than ME1, not to mention the great plot. What gave it the final star was, (to those who were annoyed in ME1) There are no ELEVATORS!

"Third-person shooter with RPG bits tossed in."
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is the second copy of Mass Effect 2 I bought – the first was a Collectors Edition, and this second purchase shows just how much I enjoyed the game. Bioware has done a great job with Mass Effect 2, and I'm glad for their success in the third-person shooter genre. Note that I said third-person shooter (which I shall abbreviate to TPS for convienience) rather than role-playing game.

Onto the good things, now. The graphics look great, and run well on a reasonable system. I'm using a 1080p monitor, and I notice no choppiness with my HD5770 (roughly on par with the HD4870, if that helps). A small criticism: I noticed that tears look like blood. Atmosphere is amazing – the whole game is a whole lot darker and edgier than the last. This feel can get tiresome when you realise you can't see the corners of the room you're in because it's so atmospheric, though.

Sound is generally stellar, with the soundtrack being superb, and the voice acting being amazing, with the exception of the male Shepard, who talks in an incredibly deep monotone. I still stand in the lower level of Afterlife listening to the music, I enjoy it so much.

At it's core, Mass Effect 2 is a shooter, not an RPG. It has no inventory system, few side-quests, a poor main quest, and its level design leaves much to be desired. In terms of the main quest, the main objective is to collect squad members in order to attempt a ‘suicide mission’. That's pretty much what the box says. What it doesn't say is why the hell you're going after these particular people. You don't stumble across squad members, like in the original Mass Effect, or Dragon Age: Origins; you do missions to recruit them, which generally involve fighting lots of mercenaries for almost no reason whatsoever, while having nothing to do with the main plot at all. I wouldn't mind the missions so much if they actually varied in anything other than scenery, though. Level design is poor, predictable to the extreme, to the extent that when you see cover ahead, you know you're about to be attacked. Unlike the ‘main plot rule’, this applies to every single mission you do. No exceptions.

The scientist's mission is the only exception to this ‘main plot rule’, which has a small mention of the main antagonists, who have apparently instigated the trouble you need to trouble-shoot. Even this is not followed up, leaving you to continue with your ‘cookie-cutter’ missions. I know there was the recession and all, but the lack of good side missions really get on my nerves.

What all my complaints come down to is this: there is no continuity. There is no reason why Shepard needed to be brought back from the dead. Anyone could have done what she did in Mass Effect 2. Shepard isn't so uber that she's the most powerful fighter in the universe. Missions don't lead onto each other, and there are no deviations from the plot layed out ingame after the compusory tutorial mission. We see brief cameos from people in the original – enough for Bioware to claim that it's a sequel, but no more.

I seem to have a love-hate relationship with Mass Effect 2 – on one hand, I truly enjoy the universe Bioware has created, and the few RPG elements left, but the shortcomings are major: Incredibly linear level design, poor plot, and most importantly: no continuity, both in terms of the series and the game itself. Because of all these, I cannot give this more than a 7/10 rating.

I get a bad taste in my mouth every time I play. What truly saddens me is that it could've been so much better. Instead, it is a game of missed opportunities.

Two years after Commander Shepard repelled invading Reapers bent on the destruction of organic life, a mysterious new enemy has emerged. On the fringes of known space, something is silently abducting entire human colonies. Now Shepard must work with Cerberus, a ruthless organization devoted to human survival at any cost, to stop the most terrifying threat mankind has ever faced.

To even attempt this perilous mission, Shepard must assemble the galaxy’s most elite team and command the most powerful ship ever built. Even then, they say it would be suicide. Commander Shepard intends to prove them wrong.
