If you're into sci-fi games this is an absolute must have! The Mass Effect games are the best I've played! Even with Destiny out I still go back to Mass Effect just for the amazing story and great game play! Not to mention these games have a high replayability, I've played the trilogy more times then I can count and I still love it every time!

One of my favorites, this game is very different from others games that are sinular to it. Well amusing i beat it more than 2 times. When it comes to deciding decisions with people/crew members it reflects the game.Do something bad with Jack would be insane but i dont care for her even she dies in the suicide mission. I really like the way how we (us) can be in a relationship with a alien, human... "Hmm i wonder how Tali and Shep kids will come out". Best game i played.

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.
