Summary: This is the second of the Mass Effect series of the game. I got totally engrossed in it and played for hours on end non-stop. The game play is exciting and challenging with new things to figure out and explore along the way as you work to get to the end. I was so impressed by it (and I am not a game player) that I went out afterward and bought the entire 3 game series! I have started playing the first game and will work my way through it on to the second game.
Summary: Mass Effect 2 is one of the greatest games I've ever played. The storyline is amazing, the characters well developed, the world is fully realized, and the game play is wonderful (and long). It's not just one of the best RPGs of all time, it's one of the greatest PC games ever. ME2 is one of the most complete and immersive gaming experiences I've had.
Summary: It's hard to top a great game with a sequel. I don't know if ME2 is better than ME1, but it's not worse. It's definitely different. Less epic story, more interesting character development. Love all the new characters, something for everyone. Bioware's game craftmanship is unparalleled. The story telling, graphics, voice acting and especially music create an incredibly powerful atmosphere.
Epic Sci Fi shooter/RPG and fascinating intergalactic encyclopedia in one.

Summary: Mass Effect 2 isn't the best RPG I've played but it's the best shooter I've played.Mass Effect 2 isn't just a game but it's an entertaining fictional intergalactic encyclopedia because it's codex provides detailed information about history/cultural aspects of all the different alien races and about wars that have happened between certain races and how certain races first encountered other races.It will also teach you about extinct races and about races that were around...
Summary: I played and purchased this on the 360 before getting it again for the PC. I got it at a discounted price, even better. I sank tens of hours into it, and many have put hundreds of hours into it. This is *the* best Mass Effect out of the three, in my opinion. Exploration, gameplay, and story were notches above Mass Effect 3 and 1. If you loved Mass Effect 1, get it. If you liked Mass Effect 3, get it.
An excellent introduction to modern video game story telling.

Summary: So the graphics probably look a little last gen at this point but the game still looks beautiful and was designed with aesthetics that complement its graphical limitations (Mass Effect 3 is not as consistent in this regard). This was one of the early games I played upon returning to gaming and it really opened my eyes as to what games were capable of in the story telling department.
