Good Game But Not For PS3

Let me start of by saying that even though I was unable to play a lot of the game the parts I did play were amazing,I loved almost everything about the game from the big stuff like combat and the tense decisions they force you to make all the way to the small stuff like walking around and hearing the NPC's having some funny conversations, it's an amazing game that I would recommend playing....on another console.

Even though I loved the game itself,I had allot of problems trying to play it,the game froze so many times that I got hair pulling frustrated,there was even a side mission that was impossible to do cause it would always freeze at the beginning,I had to delete and re-install the game data that you have to install in order to play the game multiple times because it would keep being corrupted and every install took about an hour,so I probably spent about 5 hours installing overall because I was really stubborn and kept trying over and over again,there was also problems with some cut scenes like Shepard talking but his mouth not moving or a character talking but making no sound. That being said I want to stress that it's a really good game but unless you have the latest and greatest ps3 I wouldn't recommend getting it on ps3, try it on pc or xbox where it might work better but it's not worth it to get it on ps3.

Outstanding RPG/Shooter. Too bad Gamefly doesn't offer it for sale used, would have kept the game.

Mass Effect 2 PS3 is Great!

I am going to keep this review short and say that ME2 on PS3 is great. Anyone who hasn't play it on 360 or PC will have a blast playing one of the best games this generation of games has to offer.

Story is this. Shepard is killed in action after an assault on the Normandy space ship by the Collectors. 2 years later, Shepard is brought back to life by a human terrorist organization called Cerberus and with not much to go on or choices, Shepard allies him/herself with them to hunt down the Collectors to protect Humanity from the Reapers. This will keep any player entertained no matter what system.

Gameplay is the same as the 360 or PC versions except some of the hacking and opening minigames are a bit more simpler or complex depending on certain situations. Most of the DLC is included on the Disc and no more disc swapping since it is on a Blu-Ray Disc instead of a couple DVD discs.

Graphics quality is way better than 360 version since EA and Bioware ported the game and then optimized it so it is underneath the quality of Unreal 3 engine that ME3 uses. Other than that it is great for a ported game. Sound is by far great also.

Overall 9 out of 10.
