Summary: A very "linear" game and definitely a FPS (First Person shooter). The game has truly stunning visuals but playing it relies too much, for my tastes, on twitch reflexes. I am playing the PC DVD version and suspect there are some problems with game play and screen resolution. The bypassing of locks and such is intuitively obvious but just doesn't "work". Clicking on the correct symbols will NOT necessarily activate the "button".
Summary: if you already have the regular version of the game this one does not add anything that's really worth it other than the soundtrack. i bought this when it was on sale just for that. the other add-ons are mostly cosmetic.
Summary: Mass effect 2 could be a good game but compared to the 1st one its limited. First of all they introduce ammo which one of the best things about the first game was not worrying about ammo, only your heat meter. You shouldn't have to worry about running out since its just about everywhere but its something I wish they didn't add.
Summary: The cats before you use the card and you end up paying about the price of the game for the ABILITY to BUY MORE content for the DLCs. Otherwise yeah, it's Mass Effect two, it's pretty and feels nice, if you're into that.
Summary: The game is awesome it can have 5 of 5 stars the reason why this review is with 3 stars, is because of the poor digital software/videogames downloader of amazon. Well in my case I can't download 10GB in one attempt since there are other ppl who use my Internet too, and the "pause" of the client not always work when I had like 8GB I needed to stop the downloader and then it restarted from the beginning.
Summary: Mass Effect 2 was not as great as the first one. Instead of sticking with the original keyboard settings, they altered them which made game play difficult initially, even knowing the keys. In addition, they removed the shortcut keys for the journal, codex and squad screens, making it take more time to access those screens. The combat in Mass Effect 2 was actually pretty cool, sort of.
Summary: I tripped across the original Mass Effect at EA's download site recently, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Using basically the same engine and game mechanics as KOTOR I and II, it plays pretty much like the third installment of that franchise, minus the licensing fees. I downloaded the deluxe edition of Mass Effect II, ready to continue the saga of Commander Shepard. The Good: - You pick up where you left off in ME.
Summary: I'd been eagerly anticipating Mass Effect II (from here forward ME2) for a long time, especially once I learned that EA was doing away with the invasive DRM that crippled ME1. I pre-ordered mine and started playing as soon as Steam unlocked it. I've played about 30 hours, and have developed some opinions based on that game play. First off, the excellent bits: 1) Graphics are great, and run smoothly even on mid range graphics cards.
Summary: I liken this game to winning a trip on the Titanic, Sure you're excited when you first see it but the closer you get to the end the quicker you just want it to all be over. First off, the story is well done, voice acting is ok (way too much cursing for the sake of cursing), graphics are incredible. The down side is everything else.
Summary: Being a fan of the first game and many of the products Bioware has put out over the years, Mass Effect 2 was high on my list to play. However it suffers from some of the same bad design decisions that Mass Effect 1 and Dragon Age had along with in some cases instead of fixing the problems from the previous game, just scrapping the idea all together. One of the first things I noticed was it was much less like an RPG than the previous game.
