Mass Effect

Recommended Posts

Available on Xbox One (backwards compatibility) and PC

In this sequel, BioWare takes the foundation laid in Mass Effect (Commander Shepherd must navigate space racism and the potential predetermined destruction of the universe alongside a motley crew of aliens) and builds a beautiful shiny space house on top of it. Oh, and it chucks out the goddamn Mako maneuvering. There's a completely redesigned combat system that evokes the duck and cover style of the Gears games, as opposed to the original's failed attempt to create a smooth third-person shooter/RPG wheel hybrid. Add in Shepherd's special skills and your squad's unique abilities and you've got dynamic gameplay that lets you choose a personal fighting style. The game's comfortable place as the space meat in the middle of the "introducing you to this world" (Mass Effect 1) and "destroying this world" (Mass Effect 3) sandwich gives the plot some breathing room. Into that breathing room steps the most incredible cast of characters, potentially ever. The romance options actually hurt your feelings, the background stories tug at your heartstrings, the ideological arguments between your friends paralyze you when it comes time to make a choice. Sure, RPGs are good at evoking emotion and forcing you to make game time decisions, but the sheer magnitude of how much Mass Effect 2 makes you care is a rare achievement.

PROS
Finely crafted story
characters and dialog
Ramped up action with better controls
Continuing your story with an imported character

CONS
The mining minigame is a pile of ass
Helmet-head intrudes on key scenes
Armor and equipment management is too refined
