3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but the removal of RPG elements is a loss I miss, February 26, 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars

This review is from: Mass Effect 2 Platinum Hits (Video Game)
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). Unfortunately with the improved story comes the removal of nearly every single traditional RPG element. Playing the game, I feel like I am being dragged through the story instead of being PART of the story like I did in ME1. Without the RPG elements to break up the story and to give something else to focus on, the game became a bit repetitious. Overall, amazing story, lacking gameplay, and cover based shooting made the game fun, but I wanted different things than what the developers of ME2 wanted.

Thanks for this review.. I'm glad to see someone else out there feels the same ay I do. To me, ME2 was a step backwards from the original
