I went out and bought this game, instead of waiting for all of you to finish it and send it back. I wish I had waited.
The first game was fantastic. Everyone's biggest complaint was the horrible interface of the inventory system. +
So what did they do? The eliminated the entire inventory system altogether. Now there's a big debate on IGN on whether this is an RPG or a shooter.
A lot of the aspects of the first game that I liked are missing in this second iteration. I still give it an 8, because it's still a very fine game. But had I researched it more before buying, I'd have waited.
+Oh, and the elevators, which are also gone. You still have loading screens, but now they are boring graphical displays instead of the opportunities for hilarious dialog.
Found myself sucked into this game, putting 27 hours in on 3 days, played once through and it was just amazing, now playing through second time to beef my guy up for me3 which was announced in me2. All I can really say is perfect action rpg.
now comes a game finally after all this time that was about due and with word of mass effect 3 in the works it`ll be a great way to start the journey with mass effect 2 cause anything you do will be taking into mass effect 3 can`t wait to see the next one in the series
