Summary: I love role playing games and sci-fi so I thought I would try this. I fell in love with it! I have never played a game that cause me to invest my emotions into it as this did. I could totally get lost in the story. When my charactors died at the end (it was the ending I chose) I was like NOOOOOOO! I was really feeling for these characters. Even though this is a wonderful stand alone game, at some point I will get the others to complete the set. Excellent!
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: Sequels are never as good as the original, but this is an exception. The only issue I had with Mass Effect 1 were some of the needlessly long and tedious mission on words. No more! Combat has been improved, great conversation features, and so much more. My favorite of the 3 Mass Effect games!
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.
Summary: I loved it! It's a worthy sequel to the original Mass Effect. I look forward to the third installment. The Screenwriting was incredible as well as the character developements. It's not just a good game, it's also a great Sci-Fi Story.
Summary: After having this game since 2010 and not playing it till a few weeks ago (heard it required lots of time I didn't have) I am now kicking myself for A: waiting so long, and B: not starting with ME 1. This is hands down one of the very best single player gaming experiences I have encountered. This made me hunt down a good condition ME1 just to get the experience, although you can actually buy the trilogy (nice Bioware, but where a season pass type bundle for DLC?).
Summary: I was initially taken aback when I saw that some features of ME1 had changed (menu style/color/positioning and gameplay features - heat clip reloading instead of overheating, etc) but once I got used to it, I enjoyed this game even more than ME1. It is an awesome series!
