Summary: Mass Effect game, by Electronic Arts, sets the benchmark for third person role playing actions games. It is as close to a DVD film as a video game can get, because, unlike most first person games, players can see and hear the player character as well as the non-player characters (NPCs). This movie-like quality greatly enhances the compelling story, which is the hallmark of the Mass Effect Trilogy.
Summary: Just finished this--like right now. And I have to say that it didn't disappoint. I wouldn't say it's better than the first, but it's just as good for a few reasons. There isn't much of a story here. You know your main intentions from the beginning and you have to build a core team as well as upgrade everything--and yes I do mean EVERYTHING. It will help--in order to have a successful perfect end. There are differences between the first two games that should be noted.
Summary: The galaxy of Mass Effect has been masterfully expanded upon albeit with the game play being streamlined. Having played through the original title years ago I was skeptical if BioWare could really follow through with all that was promised. I've waited to purchase till it was in the budget title range. I played the 1st hour not signed in with autosave off (as if I hadn't played Mass Effect 1) just to see what the base story had to offer.
Summary: When I picked up the first Mass Effect, I was thoroughly impressed with the amount of detail put into each character and with how deep the story was. Of course the game itself wasn't perfect, with issues of framerate and shallow gameplay options. That being said, the game was perfect in every other way. Mass Effect 2 had big shoes to fill, and my God if this isn't a good game I don't know what is. What makes it good?
Summary: This game is without a doubt my favorite game of all I've ever played. The story is really good, especially if you have played the Mass Effect 1 and go on to play Mass Effect 3. The gameplay is also really fun but the best thing about the game is the story and how responds to the way you interact with characters. If you are a fan of RPGs, you must get this game.
