Story
Two years after Commander Shepard repelled invading Reapers bent on the destruction of organic life, a mysterious new danger has emerged. On the fringes of known space, something is silently abducting entire human colonies. Now Shepard must work with Cerberus, a ruthless organization devoted to human survival at any cost, to stop the most terrifying threat mankind has ever faced. To even attempt this perilous mission, Shepard must assemble the galaxy’s most elite team and command the most powerful ship ever built. Even then, doubters say it would be suicide. Commander Shepard intends to prove them wrong.

Gameplay
An space-based action RPG like its predecessor, gameplay in Mass Effect 2 revolves around the player's particular version of Commander Shepard and continuing development of this character as the game proceeds. As the game opens a variety of character classes are made available to the player, with talents, both exclusive and general, associated with each. With experience these talents are leveled up, resulting in the unlocking of related abilities and/or entirely new talents. The player has the ability to customize their Commander Shepard in a number of ways including physical appearance, gender, and certain aspects of their personal history, with the rub being that these choices can influence things like available missions, dialogue choices with non-player characters (NPCs), and character background.

Accompanying this main character are a number of preset supporting characters that the player can direct and develop relationships with, which again, will alter the outcome of the story. All the characters from the original game make an appearance in Mass Effect 2, but the immediate characters surrounding Commander Shepard are new. Additional new features that players can expect to experience include new alien races; a more realistic damage system; a new heavy weapons system allowing for maximum damage; a regenerative health system; a dramatic increase in the number of character animations available to Shepard; and updates to the dialogue mechanic used when conversing with NPCs.

Integration with the Original Mass Effect
Mass Effect 2 allows players of the original Mass Effect game to import save games to continue the story of their own Commander Shepard. In doing this, the decisions that were made in the first game will affect the events of the second game. In addition, characters from the first game will return, as long as they were not killed off by the player in the first game. On the other hand, new players coming to the series for the first time in Mass Effect 2 will start a brand-new character, discover the events of the previous games as they progress and embark on a thrilling stand-alone adventure that does not require the previous game for play.

Key Features

  • New Damage System - New location based damage system allows for targeting of key weak points, blasting off limbs, igniting enemies, or crippling and disabling enemy troops.

I generally tend to avoid waxing poetical on reviewing video games as I often have a tendency to let my blubbering enthusiasm cloud what I'm trying to get across when writing a review.

That being said however, I can safely say that Mass Effect 2 has quite possibly one of the best, if not best production value and polish of any game I have played within the last 10 years. Everything from graphics, sound and voice acting, all the way down to the actual writing and little tidbits that flesh out all sections of the world show that Bioware was exceedingly thoughtful and fairly meticulous with developing a futuristic world upon which we strap on the boots of everyone's favorite Space Marine: Commander Shepard.

Firstly, a bit of intro to the story, without going into Spoilers:

The game picks up 2 years after the first game finishes. The Citadel is recovering from the massive attack that it suffered by Saren at the end of the game. The Citadel Council, in an effort to quell mounting rumours about the Reaper threat, officially claim that the attack was only the work of the Geth and a Rogue Spectre. Meanwhile several Human colonies and outposts just start vanishing altogether. The send Shepard to investigate what they believe is Geth involvement behind the attacks, when something goes horribly, horribly wrong...

Story:

Fantastic on all fronts, particularly if you take advantage of the Mass Effect 1 character import feature. You can definitely see how Bioware took great pains to take many of the choices, even the not-so-obvious ones, and transfer them to the new game. Choices you made in the first game can show up here!

Now THIS is what I call immersion!

In the past, Bioware has shown a tendency to surpass itself whenever developing a sequel (remember how much better Baldur's Gate II was compared to I - and the original Baldur's Gate was already excellent). Well, compared to this second installment, the original Mass Effect now seems like a typical space-RPG/Shooter.

Having played the original game will not only help you better insert yourself into Commander Shepard's boots (you can actually import your original character form the first game - choices and all) - but also appreciate the improvements more.

The story is darker and (without spoiling it) the choices harder to live with. Combat has been streamlined, with tactical decisions (using cover, taking the high ground) now being more important, without the game loosing its shooter character though.

Both the visuals and the sounds are exquisite. Not only are the graphics really impressive (and I am running WinXP so that is DirecX-9 mind you) and the sounds dramatic but the voice acting and dialogue integration should be taught in game-design seminars.

In this second installment there is no actual inventory to speak of (more on this later), loading times are shorter and better concealed (remember those endless elevator rides? Now forget about them), and accessing your special abilities menu has been simplified.

Although I bought the game from Gamestop rather than Amazon because I wanted the Terminus armor/Black Storm gun, I felt compelled to write a review on Amazon, as I usually do my online shopping here.

This game is absolutely incredible! The story sucks you in like a black hole, and hours can pass by without you noticing it!

The gameplay in ME2 is FAR superior to the original game, with a greater emphasis on real time combat, but without sacrificing the great story elements that made the original a classic.

Graphics are noticeably improved as well, with more detailed textures and better lighting and shadow effects.

The only complaints I have are minor, such as not being able to toggle your helmet, and the game not having AA as an option..

Overall though, this game is absolutely incredible and I highly recommend it..

Amazing game! Definitely improving on the story from the original Mass Effect game. Came with most of the DLC and pretty much enjoyed the whole game. Can't say I was a fan of scanning planets for ores and the like, but the main storyline was good and I would recommend to anyone new to the Mass Effect trilogy. However, you really should start with Mass Effect, then move to Mass Effect 2 and then 3. If you start on anything but the first game, you will not understand certain aspects of the story.

Mass Effect 2 is a massive sci-fi action RPG game. the game follows the storyline of the origional Mass Effect, and makes many significant improvements. The game plays as a third person cover shooter, with some rpg elements (though greatly reduced from the first game). The combat mechanics were improved alot, but getting into cover is a little irritating at times. This game has an incredible amount of georgeous cutcenes, fantastic voice work and animations, fun gameplay, amazing story, very very likeable characters, and much more. But for Xbox 360 owners, playing this game is much better, here's why. Upon playing Mass Effect 1 (an Xbox 360 exclusive), players make many decisions that actually carry over into the second game such as relationships, choices, and behavior (paragon=good guy, renegade=bad guy). The decisions made in the first two games carry over into the third game, giving you arguably the most personal experience in gaming. Not one person has the same exact experience, because you create it how you want it. The sense of reward when a decision you made in the previous game, or even in the current game change the plot is amazing. In short, this game is a must have for any gamer. It is one of the greatest games ever created, and should not be missed.
