About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Mass Effect 2 is a better game than the original Mass Effect. Plain and simple. The combat is better, the side missions are much better, and this is arguably the most polished and relatively bug-free game that BioWare has ever produced. Little nitpicks and problems with the first game are long gone, and what you are left with is amazingly fun gameplay and a spectacular story with great characters and a complex and rich galaxy to explore.

Mass Effect 2: Reviewed (360, PC)

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.

Mass Effect 2 review (X360)

HonestGamers

  • Excerpt: I’m struggling to record my thoughts on Mass Effect 2 in a serviceable way. I could very easily talk about how the previous title’s engine has been overhauled almost completely. How firefights are vastly improved by a universal magazine system rather than waiting for your sci-fi weapon of choice to cool after an overheat, or how the scaling back of customisable powers and equipment means less fiddling and more immediate results.

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

The Gamers Temple
27 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Three little words had me worried over Mass Effect 2, the sequel to the extremely popular 2007 Xbox 360 RPG. Those words? Dragon. Age. Origins. BioWare's last major release (only a few short months ago) was an unmitigated disaster, with below average presentation and slow, severely boring and needlessly complicated combat.

Mass Effect 2

True achievements
30 April 2010
  • Conclusion: Although it lacks multiplayer, there is plenty of reasons to replay the game. The decisions you make in the game alter your allies decisions and their loyalty to you and change ultimately change the overall storyline. Plus, the game is filled with plenty of pretty easy achievements. A definite 10/10. Looking forward to Mass Effect 3.

Break it Down

Players once again assume the role of Commander Shepard to save the universe from another massive threat.

Mass Effect 2 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Finally, there's the presentation, and I'll start with the negatives: We experienced strange (though infrequent) bugs, ranging from bizarre collision issues to sound cut outs to occasions where the console hard-locked (which happened to each TeamXbox editor playing a retail disc). Other than these issues, the game looks terrific and performs well.
