Summary: I was so psyched to get this game that I started playing it the moment it arrived at the house. Unfortunately, the excitement died off quickly. 1. Mass Effect 2 adds nothing good that the previous game didn't have. Not a thing. 2.
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...
Pros: Graphic is outstanding. Interactive movies/entertainment is the way to go given the amount of reality TV on these days. If Snooki (Jersey Shores) is the best entertainment on TV, then I prefer to engage with XBOX play.
Cons: The text in the gameplay is small on HDTV and too small to see on SDTV. Bioware acknowledged the problem by PM.

One step forward and one step back for Bioware and ME.

Summary: I really enjoy ME2 but I think the game is really only worth about 3.5 stars. The main reason for this is the "improvements" were in many ways not as good as they should have been. First off the xp and money system was completely redone.
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.
They call it a suicide mission. You'll want to prove them wrong.

Excerpt: The Mass Effect series is one that I have a longstanding love and affection for. For all it's faults and foibles, these are the games I always seem to come back to when I tire of my shiny new purchases and just want to lose myself in a game.
