Mass Effect 2: Reviewed (360, PC)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Bioware’s release of Mass Effect in 2007 was something of a statement of intent from the producer in what it wanted to produce. Perhaps tired of the restraints given to them from producing Star Wars games, Bioware produced what was potentially a masterpiece which was unfortunately flawed.

  • Excerpt: One of Earth’s deep-cover operatives has been arrested on the edge of known space by the Batarians after apparently discovering a Reaper artifact. As ever, it's Commander Shepard to the rescue. Potential spoilers prevent me from saying much else but needless to say a lot more will unfold over the course of this new chapter.

Mass Effect 2 review (X360)

HonestGamers
24 February 2011
  • Excerpt: it’s because it excels on so many fronts and does so many things right that it’s hard to settle on just one thing. So I’ll ramble in a word document instead, talk about a few things that caught in my mind and then reveal that I’ve hardly scratched the surface.

Mass Effect 2

Thunderbolt Games
31 January 2011
  • Excerpt: The original Mass Effect was something of an enigma when it came out in 2007. Then an Xbox 360 exclusive, Bioware’s tried and true Knights of the Old Republic character development formula mixed with an action-oriented shooter setup. You could spend time grinding, and yet it still boiled down to aiming a gun and pulling the trigger. You could pump all the points in the world into increasing your health, but forget to take cover and it’d all be for naught.

Mass Effect 2 PS3 Review

AtomicGamer
24 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Despite a lot of uncertainty on the part of Sony’s security and a rather lukewarm reception to the PS Move, I still think the PS3’s best days are ahead of it. And one of the good signs is to see a previously exclusive franchise start making its way to a console for the first time. Maybe the biggest of these in the last while is Mass Effect 2 - while Microsoft is holding onto the publishing rights for that game, meaning we won’t likely ever see a PS3 port, BioWare did a...

Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker Review

GamerNode
14 September 2010
  • Excerpt: There’s nothing like more Mass Effect 2 to get the gaming blood flowing again. Lair of the Shadow Broker takes players back to Illium, where Shepards across the world will reunite with Liara T’Soni for one more battle. This time, it’s against the Shadow Broker, a shady character who tried to sell Shepard’s body to the Collectors in the Mass Effect: Redemption comics.

  • Excerpt: Bioware is no stranger to releasing add-on or expansion packs for their lineup of games. It comes to no surprise that they are continuing to support the success of Mass Effect 2 with extra content for space-hungry gamers to devour, hence the recent release of Lair of the Shadow Broker. The narrative around Shadow Broker explores the relationship of Shepard and the very blue Liara T�Soni as well as follow-up regarding her strained dealings with the Shadow Broker.

Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker Review

GameSpot
9 September 2010
  • Excerpt: The beautiful and regal Liara T'Soni was one of several memorable party members in the original Mass Effect , so it was disappointing to see her relegated to a decidedly minor role in that role-playing game's sequel. In Mass Effect 2 's newest downloadable content, Lair of the Shadow Broker, you finally get to reminisce with your old Asari friend--that is, when you aren't busy blasting attacking space meanies into smithereens.
  • Pros: Absolutely dripping with atmosphere, Lots of excellent combat, Exciting vehicle sequence, Two enjoyable boss fights
  • Cons: Mass Effect 2's usual quirks pop up
