Mass Effect 2 Xbox 360 User Review
Super Gamer Dude
Mass Effect 2 is the sequel to BioWare's hit space-based role-playing game (RPG), Mass Effect. A single player adventure, Mass Effect 2 allows players to continue the adventures of the fully customizable series hero Commander Shepard, as you take on a whole new adventure and a new cast of supporting characters. Additional new features include the ability to import game save files from the original Mass Effect game to continue the adventure in an unbroken fashion, a new damage system, a new, more flexible dialogue game mechanic and much more.
Like any game nowadays there are some problems with Mass Effect 2, the use of profanity was not warranted in certain scenes but i feel in some cases it was not justified and to be honest just didn't quite fit with the game itself.
The graphics on this game are OK, they reminded me of Gears of War, I was not happy with the overall graphics and would rate the graphics at 7/10
The sound quality and verbal communication in this game is second to none, brilliant, if only all game designers took this approach, crystal clear and would rate 10/10
The game play within this game at times can seem like a headache, an example being driving around looking for mineral deposits, with little else going on, the weapons have also been reduced someone whilst others have been altered.
It may feel like I am doing a demolition job on Mass Effect 2, if you like shooters and action then you will love this game, I just feel that perhaps they have tried to hard to improve on the original taking out some of the key elements which made it a classic hence the sequel.
Overall though the game is much better than many of the other games out there at present, within my top 10.
