Good, but the removal of RPG elements is a loss I miss

Summary: Playing Mass Effect 2 is like watch a good movie, a movie where you can interrupt the flow at certain points and take control of the characters and slightly change the plot. Mass Effect has always been about telling a grand story, and the middle part of the Mass Effect trilogy has made improvements over the first title, the story is deeper, and a bit more interesting and complex than ME1 (Mass Effect 1).
Nice storyline, but gameplay could be a lot better

Summary: I like the storyline of ME, but the gameplay is quite boring ( like the random missions - too simple, too little ). I will play the 3rd episode of the saga however since I really like the story line.
Not what I had expected, but still a game the RPG player would enjoy.

Summary: I was abit dissapointed playing through Mass Effect 2, because I kept comparing it to Mass Effect 1. The story is good, you can import your character from ME1 so the choises you made in ME1 follow you through the whole game. Mass Effect 1 had a really nice planet exploration system, where you would drive around in a vehichle scanning and finding side-quests loot or info. Where in ME2 you scan planets from The Normandy, which gets very repetitive and absolute boring.
Summary: I am sorry, but it doesn't matter how good your graphics are, the story was lame, the game was easy, and everything was formulaic. Bioware just takes the same old game, re-skins it, changes the abilities, and repackages it. The gaming industry is becoming entirely lame. Are we really so lazy that we prefer games that are "Press A and you win!"? Sorry Bioware, I am done with you.
