    The sequel should be amazing

    Rated on March 31, 2008 by Larzarus1

    Bioware and Rpg's have always seemed to go hand in hand. But what has resulted from this jump to action rpg's. Evolution

    A ground breaking action RPG with fantastic replay value and enthralling setting.

    Rated on August 09, 2009 by WeWerePirates

    Rated on August 11, 2009 by jackwt

    I only got my Xbox 360 in December 2008, so unfortunately I wasn't around to see the initial release of earlier games such as Mass Effect. Instead I came across a friend playing this game and I had he...
