ME2 builds on everything that was great about the first game and improves on everything that wasn't. I can't think of anything that has not had some extra special attention given it in this game, but the two main improvements that stand out to me are the tedious exploring and loot management systems. Both have been revamped and are perfectly executed.
As far the story, it doesn't get better than this. Though not the most original storyline ever, it is told with the skill of an academy award winning writing and production staff. Voice acting is spot on and you'll find quite a few familiar voices in there, such as Martin Sheen, Michael Dorn, and Carrie Ann Moss. It's an emotionally driven story that keeps you playing and actually gets you caring about the characters and their struggles.
A++. But be warned...you HAVE to play through the first game if you want the full experience. Trust me, it's worth it. Don't rush!
As someone who was a fan of the first Mass Effect, I was looking forward to 2's release. Nothing could have prepared me for what Mass Effect 2 had in store. Simply put, this is one of the best games I have played, ever. Every flaw that its predecessor had has been removed or fixed. I was unfortunate to have lost my save data from the first game, but it did not take away from the experience.
With graphics rivaling the best the 360 has to offer, fantastic combat, and a voice cast that performs wonderfully, this game captured me till the end and left me wanting more.
I have nothing bad to say about this game, I can only hope that the next installment can stay on par, Bioware has really outdone themselves with this one.
This is one of the best science fiction game ive ever played. Normally i dont play RPGs but i made an exception for this one. It doesnt play like a RPG but more of a shooter. The gameplay is simple, the music is OUT OF THIS WORLD, the graphics are really good it brings out the sci-fi of the characters, the story is good, this game just has everything a hardcore gamer wants. A RPG/SHOOTER, GREAT STORY, GRAPHICS, MUSIC, AND GAMEPLAY. I would HIGHLY recomend this game to anyone. ;P
