    Pure Science-Fiction. You feel you're part of it.

    The game is a pure masterpiece. You feel like you're part of a live show where every line and every word you pronounce can change the outcome. You're the same old Shepard (saved by Cerberus) and asked to save once more ... Read Full Review

    Maybe the greatest game in the role-playing game genre.

    Mass Effect 2 takes place after Shepard and his crew took down Sovereign and Saren. The council have now finally learned about the Reapers, but continue to deny that they are a real threat. The Collectors are harvesting... Read Full Review

    ME2 is a good action/adventure game, but don't mistake it for an RPG.

    If ever there were a case for double-checking the genre a game is listed under, it's Mass Effect 2. For a game that claims to be an RPG, it makes no attempt to hide the fact that it's actually a third-person shooter acti... Read Full Review

    With rich atmosphere and intense action, LotSB is the best DLC money can buy for Mass Effect 2

    When switching from the first Mass Effect to the second, I was disappointed that I wasn't going to be able to use my old squad mates from the first game. One of them was the smart and beautiful asari, Liara T'Soni. She... Read Full Review

    Nobody does sequels like the Mass Effect series, with unparalled depth and cause-n-effect schema.

    Mass Effect 2 carries on the depth and breadth of the first game and makes it even more challenging as I find that I tend to die more often without making good use of my squad abilities and flanking tactics well. Also, a... Read Full Review

    This game brought the Mass Effect series to life with a very big improvement in gameplay, solid graphics, and even better interactive story telling which launched the first Mass Effect into greatness. The second installm... Read Full Review
