Mass Effect


The Good: Seamless blending of 3rd person FPS and RPG. Good character advancement structure. The Bad: Poor squad AI. Irritating lock-picking minigame. The Ugly: Vehicle driving and physics are a joke. Tons of short, poorly-disguised load times.

As I read over this review it comes across as pretty negative. That's not my intent at all. The RPG FPS elements, which make up far and away the majority of the game, work really well, as you would expect a Bioware title would. The story is original,...

Mass Effect 2: Arrival Review


Knock knock. Who's there? The Reapers! The Reapers wh... oh, crap.

Challenging combat scenarios

but with a throwaway advance-even-if-you-lose fight; Lots of story inconsistencies; No choice; Really, really short

Mass Effect 2: Arrival Review


Mass Effect 2 has officially ended. Is the final mission worth a purchase?

Purchasing Arrival means there’s more to do in Mass Effect 2, and that’s always a good thing. It sets up the tone of urgency that’s prevalent in the Mass Effect 3 trailer, but don’t expect it to explain a lot. If you don’t mind combat-focused, linear...

Mass Effect 2 PS3 Review


The PS3 update isn't quite the definitive version we were hoping for.

Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow ..


Closure is a good thing.

Well paced combat, excellent pieces of character development, lots of end game rewards

Best played by a very specific subset of Mass Effect players, predictable story, the return of helmet kissing

Mass Effect 2 DLC



Lair of the Shadow Broker was played with two characters, one with a relationship with Liara and one without.

Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker Review


I miss the days when a little omni-gel would fix anything!

You can't go wrong with more Liara; Beautiful set pieces; Epic story and game flow; Ties into both Mass Effect games

Very few problems with mission texts

Mass Effect 2


I spent eight hours with the original Mass Effect, and I hated all of them. While the world, characters and story were all interesting (if a little sci-fi clichéd), the combat system proved far too frustrating to persevere to the end. The RPG...

Gamers expecting a truly memorable narrative may be slightly disappointed with Mass Effect 2. The game is far too much setup and not enough payoff to be considered anything more than an opening act to the (hopefully) epic finale. Bioware could have...

Mass Effect 2 (360)


The player takes on the role of Commander Shepard once again with the option to import his or her saved game from the first Mass effect, preserving the story decisions and customizations from the original game.The game does still permit some...

-"The black armor is slimming."  Shepard's attire on the ship and the armor worn on missions can be customized to suit individual taste. The armor can be customized as often as the player likes and does not change with upgrades. Patterns are limited,...

Mass Effect 2: Kasumi - Stolen Memory Review for the PC


Diamonds are a girl's best friend. Other than a gun.

A new and very cool character; Cool loyalty mission...; Tons of clever little jokes and references

but incredibly short; Not a lot of loot; Doesn't fit in a post-story scenario; Expensive
