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: Mass Effect 2 is a game that combines exciting fast-paced missions with an excessive amount of dialogue and downtime. During the missions, the game play is fast-paced and the controls are easy to use. In fact, the controls are so easy to use that I have no problems playing this game on my laptop without a mouse. The graphics are not particularly impressive but, there nothing particularly bad about them either.
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: Asus P5B-E. Intel Q8400 CPU @ stock. 4GB Patriot DDR2 - 800 MHZ. Win 7 64 Bit Pro. DX11. Creative Labs X-FI Extreme Gamer. Sapphire Radeon HD5750 1GB card @stock. Should have had no problem running this game.
Pros: Fantastic graphics. Richly detailed world with many open quests and side areas to explore. Lots of fun!
Cons: ...when it works. Firstly, the install took SEVEN hours. It continually failed with no info on why. Went online, and tried to burn an ISO image and install from that...same problem. Expanded every RAR file manually and got it to run..but crashed at the end of the intro every time. About to throw it out the window when I tried the plain old install...and for some reason it went right through and finished. But no! Continuous BSODs and black screen crashes. Sometimes fiv...
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.
