No xBox controller support

Bob Newhart "Bob Newhart", Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: This is probably a good game,but I just hate using the keyboard for games. I want to play my games sitting on the sofa watching the game on my HDTV. There is some 3rd party support, where you have to replace a file to get it to work, but most folks seem to say it doesn't work for everything.

Boring

1943mb, Ebay
2 July 2013
  • Summary: Not much to it. You go in blasting anything that looks like the bad guys , which is nearly everybody other than you. Do what you need to do and leave. The things you shoot are all humanoid except for their faces. The places you go are all basically the same as far as the background.

Boring

  • Summary: This game has nice graphics, but it is just so boring. Same things over and over. And it is not multiplayer capable. Do not recommend.

problems

William D., Newegg
17 July 2012
  • Summary: like most "games" this one is frustrating and full of blocks and obstacles that prevent a newcomer and nonprofessional from playing past the 15 minute mark...I don't see the point of this obstructionistic plan of gaming when all many of us want is the pleasure of being in a foreign or alien world...
  • Pros: I don't do many games. I liked the reputation and the price so I tried this one.
  • Cons: You are restricted to your keyboard only...you can't hook a microsoft standard game controller up to this version thru the USB port...the game is too complex...the menus are all over the screen, the keyboard keys used aren't convenient or logical, to get beyond the first 15 minutes is a true myst...

Cheap

Gary K., Newegg
29 May 2011
  • Summary: Now I just started playing this game and find myself stuck on the ship. Why? I didn't get this lost playing Crysis 2. One word to describe this would be boring. Crysis 2 was a console port. So is this. It is only $15. If you have nothing but time on your hands. Try it.
  • Pros: The cut scenes make the game more immersive. You can choose your character. Mass Effect 3 coming out soon so it was worth a look at this game. Only $15.00.
  • Cons: Graphics seem abit outdated. Looks like a console port. Faces are not too bad. Hair looks pasted on. The poor graphics are a direct result of game console companies waiting till the graphics chips are better and cheap. When the ps4 comes out graphics will suddenly improve. We need to see Nvidia, ...

revised review

Anonymous, Newegg
27 June 2010
  • Summary: My first review, my vision was clouded by excitement. What really upsets me is that one of the most trusted sources for reviews (IGN) made it look amazing....they knew it wasn't good! lol...but...hey...it's something to do right?
  • Pros: better graphics, not million of the same weapon in inventory as in me1
  • Cons: new mechanics are not good at all. using the same button to open doors, crouch, jump over walls, etc is not cool at all. story is not bad, but if you have played me1 (most of us have) if you don't let how much you liked the 1st one cloud your vision...you will quickly see that the story is not ve...

Really EA?

Anonymous, Newegg
25 June 2010
  • Summary: I'm not sure that any of the other reviewers here have played Mass Effect 1. They all seem astounded by Mass Effect 2. Look, I played this game for 7 hours. After that I realized I was replaying Mass Effect 1 and quit. Mass Effect 1 was the best game I have ever played.
  • Pros: The same PROs that Mass effect 1 had: - Graphics - Fighting Mechanics - Voices - World
  • Cons: This is the SAME EXACT game as Mass Effect 1. They didn't change ANYTHING! I mean come on, let's be real. Oh wait, the inventory is better. WHO CARES? The only thing that really changed was the plot, and it got WORSE. Oh, and they ditched the mako. I actually really liked the mako in ME1. EVEN TH...

Better Than Most

Peter D., Newegg
5 April 2010
  • Summary: would love to see a downloadable mod that scans the whole planet and taps the 6 best resources every time you scan in exchange for that number of probes. thats what i call modifying the ships scanners!! Who wants multiplayer?
  • Pros: Well it is pretty and if your lucky enough to find a copy of the collectors edition the extra downloads DVD extras and metal DVD case etc... are worth the $60. The story line feels like your not being ripped off. My favorite part of the game is the simple fact that on completion it allows you to ...
  • Cons: someone posted it wont matter if you dont scan planets BUT.. If you dont take the time to scan planets you miss out on a bunch of cool stuff and extra battles.. although scanning is tedious and repetative even with the upgraded scan... If you like action dont get this game it does play more like ...

too much hacking required

Bob PenName, Amazon
29 April 2013
  • Summary: Interesting game - I only bought it because Mass Effect 3 was outstanding. In Mass effect 2 we have to continually hack doors etc to continue in the game ... there's no escape from this hacking nonsense. It just so happens I'm no good at hacking doors. So I gave it to the charity shop.

Mass Effect 2 and Windows 7/64 bit

Ozzie, Amazon
18 September 2010
  • Summary: This game is fine, but on Windows 7 64 bit, the bypass puzzle using the mouse is sped up so much that it is impossible to play, so that parts of the game become unplayable due to the fact that you are stalled at certain stages. You need to use the bypass to progress in the game.
