Disappointing

Edenite, Amazon

  • Summary: I really enjoyed the first mass effect story and game. This game, from the start, felt like Bioware wanted to just totally rip that apart. The story was full of railroading actions that my character never would have taken in the first place and former friends hating her for doing things she didn't even want to do. Even worse, the gameplay was limiting and repetitive. Have a problem? Hide behind a box! Want to try to do something other than hide behind a box?

not my thing

  • Summary: I kinda liked Mass Effect 1, but the second was changed so much and dumbed down that its not the same game. Most of the game really did feel like an FPS on rails with some crude RPG features tacked on for me. Didn't like it.
  • Pros: Graphically the game has been improved a lot over the first. The game itself plays a lot better than the first as well. Can also carry over character data from first game if you have it. Introduces a few new neato mechanics like research, loyalty, and ship upgrades.
  • Cons: Focuses so much on being more of a FPS that the RPG aspect seems like an afterthought- some people think that's great, I didn't like it. Game design has also become extremely linear, so most missions are literaly running a one way path from start to finish. Game progression is also very restrictive where you are forced into story missions which is REALLY annoying if you're not prepared. ME2 also threw out different weapon brands in favor of purchasing powerups for spe...

Boo!

  • Summary: I guess that's what you get for hearing about a game on youTube.
  • Pros: Kinda Fun.
  • Cons: Too much movie and not enough game. Game rushes you to go in a direction and then gives you no chance to play but just shows a long movie where everyone dies.

  • Summary: i purchased this game based on all the positive reviews. it has received 9/10 from every major review site. even at the bargain purchase price, this game has been a let-down. it has tons of dialogue that is supposed to intrigue the player into the story line, but they are absolutely mind numbing and non-essential. many times regardless of the choices made, the game continues on the same path; simply pointless.

Un jeu de transition?

  • Summary: Découvrant ME2 sans avoir jouer au 1 (ça ne pose pas de problème) j'ai été déçu de ce que l'on me vantait. Malgré une histoire riche, des graphismes assez performant, et des interactions entre personnages intéressantes (fameux choix) on ne sens que rarement l'influence de ceux-ci, l'histoire principale manque d'"héroïsme", bref on a un peu l'impression que le jeu ne sers qu'à attendre après ME 3. Agréable tout de même.

Mass Effect un jeu d'action plus qu'un rpg.

Evil Badger, Amazon
21 May 2010
  • Summary: J'avoue avoir été excessivement déçu par cet opus. On prend de moins en moins d'intérêt dans les quêtes annexes et l'histoire. On passe son temps à tirer sur tout ce qui bouge a chaque zone ou on débarque après avoir posé 3 questions. Les quêtes annexes peuvent être faites sans regarder les textes. Le système de leveling est devenu simpliste au possible. On perd de plus en plus le côté stratégique pour un simple jeu d'action.
