Mass Effect 2 is the best a sequel can get. It is way more better than the first when it comes to gameplay and story. Technical improvements such as little no texture pop ins and 30 Frames per second to stabilize performance are there. More DLC also great to.
Story wise is this. Shepard gets killed off by a surprise attack, later to be known to be attacked by Collectors. Two years later, 2185 to be exact, Shepard gets woken up in a Cerberus base. With not much to go on, Shepard is forced to work with Cerberus, a Pro-Human terrorist group, and to find a way to stop the Collectors from abducting the entire human race for a possible Reaper purposes by creating a kick-butt team. This story is even better with Loyalty missions that can determine the outcome of the so-called Suicide Mission. Same goes for Ship upgrades and the like to.
Graphics are way better than the original on 360. PS3 is a bit more better since it was released later as a enhanced port while PC is about in between. Overall little to no tech hiccups as the first game. Sound is always great since that is one of Bioware's great talent.
Gameplay is very greatly enhanced except with mining planets which is not that great. Also less customization options are present for weapons but not much of a let down since it does make it up. More love interests and even characters themselves are great additions.
The only bad thing about the 360 version is that is on 2 DVDs. Same goes for the third. 2nd one mainly needs switching once the player gets to Illium then again for the Suicide Mission unless the game needs to access content on the other disc.
Overall 10 out of 10.
Okay once again no complaints so far this game series has show promising results. The gameplay is awesome with the best story line ever. I loved the equipment set up from the first one better but hey couldn't complain because the game was good. Had to work with minimal resources since I wasn't working for the alliance much in that one. Hey awesome game, vast improvements but love the import system. Its a really good game.

a quick review...just completed my 2nd play through of ME2, and picked up all the DLC. This game is a powerhouse. It has aged very well and still feels pretty revolutionary. Huge story. Great writing. Awesome combat. The Mass Effect universe is a blast, and Mass Effect 2 is the real treasure of the series.
