Cons: Very low fps rate. Not playable. My pc has more than the minimum to run it. Waste of money and time. EA was no help. There appears to be a lot more players having the same problem but no solutions out there.
Summary: As with other reviewers, I get the "Failed to authenticate the disc" message and the game quits. This after a looooong, two disc, but successful (supposedly) installation. I, too, will never purchase another Electronic Arts game.
Summary: I got stuck on a level early on and just couldn't advance no matter what I tried...no doubt most of you will be more adept and dedicated than I am....I play to enjoy the game and it should flow easier and advance without having to pull teeth.
Pros: I really wanted to like this game...I'm s a scifi nut from way back. The graphics were adequate. The story was nothing special...just a warmed over first person shooter game that was mostly indistinguishable from 70 others after the first pass.
Cons: for the PC version - very bad keyboard controls....not possible to substitute a hand controller....you are stuck banging around on the w a s d keys and hunting for random odd keys and numbers at the most inconvenient times....very unsatisfactory controls
Summary: The game physics are not bad, but they are not realistic at all. I suggest playing the game at a friends house before buying.
Pros: there is somewhat of a interesting plot and the graphics are okay except for the scenes where they talk (sync/lips don't move). The HUD is pretty cool and easy to use.
Cons: The controls are bad. multiple keys for a single action, same key for multiple actions (cover/open), stuck in third person view, awkward views when behind an object, cannot turn while running, bumping into objects moves the character, cannot jump (only "vault" over certain objects), cannot duck o...
EA's Activation Process is self serving They do not care about the customer
7 April 2012
Summary: Just purchased the downloadable version of Mass Effect 2. Trying to activate the game wasted 45 minutes of my afternoon and it still does not work.. Amazon will not refund the purchase price and told me to contact EA. I cannot rate the game because I cannot activate the game.
Summary: Does not support Xbox 360 controller. Built myself a nice gaming PC but can't find any games to play because a lot of games don't seem to support a controller. Only keyboard and mouse, which is hard for me to get used to. Seems the only games I can play are racing games.
Pros: Graphics look good.
Cons: Read a lot of reviews about how great this game is so I decided to buy it. After installed, came to find out that it doesn't support XBox 360 controller. I don't like using the keyboard and mouse. Wish it would have stated it somewhere that it didn't support controllers. Wish someone would have s...
Summary: The game wouldn't boot. It showed the same fatal error on two powerful computers. I suspect that the vendor may have sold me a "grayware" product -- foreign software versions of dubious authenticity. The instructions were in Russian, with to bilingual options that I could find.
