So right off the bat you will start to see the amazing enhancements from the first Mass Effect. Taking my character from the first one was very smooth and everything I did in the first Mass Effect came back in this one, even the little things that I barely remembered on how I acted because it mattered that little came in at some point in the story in this one. The opening cut see is just straight up gripping. Once you actually get into combat the game enhances drastically. After that the game became hard to put down. I actually went to the midnight release and ended up not going to sleep just to beat the game it ended up taking me a little under 25 hours so 12:00am on the 26th to around 1:00am on the 27th just to beat the game. Its not that I suck but the game is 2 disks long.

I found out that the game had so many perfections and other parts that will just blow you away like how compelling the story is and the action is so amazing, that I found myself making small negatives and blowing them out of proportion a lot. That is granted that there were very few problems. Really all there is problem wise is there are a pretty good amount of loading screens, the character customizations are lacking a bit compared to the first one, and a friend of mine and myself have run into a problem of you can be standing behind something and if you aren't using it as cover the enemy bullets can pass right through it.

Over all this game is a absolute must buy and I challenge anyone to think that this game is stupid or something that was a bad idea this game has something for just about everyone.

This game is simply AMAZING...now ive played most of the top new games the 360 has to offer...with the exception of left4dead2(no comparison to this im sure)..and ill admit even some of the worst rated games i personally found astounding(at times) such as dark void, dark sector, etc...but this game is beyond anything released 2 date imo..

STORY- nothin short of great...thrilling..addicting...all that... it certainly doe'snt fail from this aspect.

GAMEPLAY- action is more intense... mechanics are much improved....more weapons than i recall in ME1...and commanding your squads many different abilities is some how even more awesome now..etc

GRAPHICS- Phoenominal...the best ive seen...nuff said

theres ALOT more to this game as if the above isnt enough...its worth a buy..and you would be missing out if you dont even try it out..seriously...10 outta 10

Mass Effect 1 was the most satisfying game I have ever played. Mass Effect 2, makes me feel like I never left the first game, and just continued that feeling of joy. The games new fighting mechanics made the journey that much more enjoyable. The story line is terrific. The voice acting is top notch, with well known actors. You could not spend a better 100+ hours on any game, and get the feeling of actually being a part of the story as it all roles out before you. Hands down, worth every penny.
