    a game where your choices make a lot of difference in the narrative.

    Mass Effect 2 when released in 2010 was highly acclaimed and won several awards of best game of the year, it is without doubt superior to its predecessor, but the game did not have as much my interest in the progress of ... Read Full Review

    Not as strong as ME1 but still was a very good sequel.

    Must I say that I adored the first Mass Effect game!It was very much entertaining, unique in its own way, action-packed and both the story and the characters are very well developed. I'm not a big fan of science-fiction ... Read Full Review

    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

    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
