First time playing Mass Effect... pretty cool game
I have seeing this game and just looked over it i finally decided to go buy it and after playing it for 8 hours I have come to the conclusion that this game is truly on its own league in other words is a hybrid. This game is like Star Wars mixed with a FPS... the story line pulls you right in from the beginning... the gameplay is nice a lot of options and customizable items... graphics are very good... overall i would recommend this game to any one
Wow, surprisingly good!
First off, I don't write reviews because most of what is written has been paid for, not in this case. I bought this game from a friends recommendation so if you are on the fence about it maybe this will help. The interface is easy to deal with, I liked the conversation options, game crashed once and I just adjusted down my video options to get past it, fortunately it was a very small amount of gameplay and then readjusted my video back to the max it was at originally. Got through to the end and now on my second run. Make sure you go to every galaxy and explore every planet, might get a little tideous but worth it for the salvage, upgrades and credits, and the creators spent a lot of time designing the star systems, etc. so worth the time just for that. Make sure you have the minimum recommendations for you PC before you buy, I do and other than the small glitch I stated above I had no problems. Save before you do a bypass or a hack in case it only gives you the one chance to interact with terminal during gameplay and make sure you get the extra time upgrades for both so you don't have make so many save points. Not a hardcore gamer, this game will make you lose track of time, don't stress if you die alot, it is fun experience and there are plenty of walkthrough sites to help. Good luck.
Very difficult unless...you know "1"
I bought this game with no experience with either game (Mass Effect 1 and 2). Big mistake!
The creators seem to have assumed that everyone would be familiar with the original game.
Been playing for 25+ hours and I've only managed to recruit one character.
It is on the basic/easy level but keep on dying.
Everyone says how great it is and the wonderful ending and all. Yeah right!!!
How are you supposed to see all those great things if you cant get anywhere? Guess I could check You Tube videos.
WHAT A COLOSSAL WASTE OF MONEY!
Very good game! Bioware really did it this time!
Very good game, downloaded the demo, tried it, worked like a charm! Even though it wasn't for Windows 7 operating system, it ran smoothly with barely noticeable lag. Although it wasn't the full version, I was still really satisfied with the performance, it features 2 action-packed levels and a basiclly unlimeted amount of customization options and choice making. If you have played the first game, it would be easier to understand the plot, even though it is still very easy to pick up and play. As I am very satisfied with the demo, I can only imagine what the full game is like! BioWare, you never disappoint me!
I love the game and almost made out with the endin
The game was absolutely wonderful. I loved how it made you think with twists and turns that all can condemn our save your mission. BioWare really doesn't let on that if you kill some random Krogan your ship will have a heart attack(not really but you get the idea). I also loved how you could choose to use your save from ME1 which was wonderful. I would recommend this to everyone who likes a good game.
After the completion of the first game in this trilogy, I found that the default keys for game-play were better positioned than the first. The graphics were pretty cool, too! The ability to import your ME1 character was an added bonus. The fact that the outcome of this and the first Mass Effect games could have a drastic effect on the third make it seem like I'm a kid reading a "Choose-your-own-adventure" book again!
Most complete story telling I've seen in a game
Aside from a punk choosing to rate this game as a one everyone I have seen or talked to considers this among the best pure stories in game form. It took me a bit to adjust to the new interface but minor complaints aside, this game is so immersive that I find myself playing it over and over to explore all the possible permutations of the story arc. The DLC add ons expand and enrich the playing experience.
Avoid at ALL costs.
I bought this game a few months ago hoping it would be like the first one, sans the bad battle engine. I wish I could go back in time and stop myself from wasting the money on this pile of garbage. The only improvement is the battle engine and that wasn't enough to save it. After 4 reinstalls, that's how many tries I gave it, I simply could NOT bear to play this waste of money.
VERY BIG GAME!
This game starts off with a bang and keeps you asking for more even after the end. So many systems, planets, aliens, stories, and battles to explore will keep you entertained and infused into the amazing adventures of our good old Commander Shepherd and his expansive crew, containing some familiar faces and very interesting new ones that you go recruiting for your new suicide mission. Fighting enemies with an upgraded battle system keeps you looking for new ways to kill many waves of enemies using the different classes available and some new weapons. Using your biotech you can launch enemies into the air and shoot them as they fall/fly slowly towards the ground. Commanding your teammates to move to different positions in real-time or use a quick menu that pauses the game giving you full control to tell them to move to a vantage point and at the same time tell them to attack a specific enemy with their weapon or biotech power while they move. As Shepherd you get a 1-9 customizable action bar in which you can use your own powers, or swap your elemental ammo type. Enemies have a fairly expansive AI, and they do try to out flank you any chance they get, all the while they have some of the same weapons and biotech powers as you do. Throughout the game the boss encounters are challenging yet rewarding, knowing when to conserve ammunition, kill waves of enemies to get more ammo clips, use biotech powers, blow up cans full of explosives, turn enemies against themselves... will get you through the battles alive with your team and racking up on the rewards. With Bioware and their awesome 'choose your story' style storyline gives so many different paths to take, big decision choices that will effect the outcome of the game, and relationships with your crew including romantic ones. Aside from it the base story is yet again the path to saving the galaxy from certain destruction. Huge plot twists and interesting characters with great background stories which again interact with more choices you make to help your team get through their loose ends before embarking on your suicide mission. The love stories which you can get into are more in depth and realistic than what I found in ME1, you play the part and it makes you feel that you are the one living the story thanks to the many choices that you have. Exploring new planets and finding materials to upgrade your weapons, ship, armor, biotech etc. got a little easier, kind of fun, and a little repetitive, but farming these really makes the difference especially when the prices for upgrading get really expensive. While scanning planets, sometimes you will find that there is a distress beacon of some sort, or radio transmissions that you find and go exploring new areas that earn you money, experience, and materials. With over a hundred planets or space stations, there's the good old little bio that every single one gets with neat bits of information from how old it is, the science, minerals, specs etc. to read and learn some neat stuff that Bioware spent the time to As long as you have the requirements to run the game, it seems to run very smoothly and looks incredible. The machine I have was able to run the game on maximum (specs below). The cut-scenes are better than most movies. Gun play and biotech-powers all look great. Artwork of all the planets, the the environments, space stations and the various races all look very detailed and well done. I don't think there was anything that could be done better at this moment except for Shepherds facial expressions, they're the only thing that looks odd at times, but its never a big deal since there's so much else to not worry about. All in all, anyone who enjoys any kind of game should not pass up playing Mass Effect 2.
