Mass Effect 2 (PC)

 

Mass Effect 2 takes the bleak vacuum of space and flushes it with color--the light of stars and galaxies, the red and violet swirls of far-off nebulas, and the glimpses of comets as they burn through the void. You'll catch your first glimpse of this in...

Mass Effect (PC)

 

When Mass Effect was originally released last November on the Xbox 360, it unveiled a vast, beautiful galaxy populated by diverse, fascinating alien races. Players stepped onto this stage as Commander Shepard, a hero at the vanguard of humanity's...

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.

Editor's Note: This review covers changes made to the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2. For the full Mass Effect 2 review, click here. The PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2 proves, if nothing else, that the game holds up nicely a year after its debut....

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

 

Overlord

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...
