Mass Effect 2 (Xbox 360)

 

Once this intense and action-packed role-playing game pulls you into its orbit, you won't want to escape.

Mass Effect 2 Review

 

Last year Bioware blew RPG fans with their game, Dragon Age. This year, they're looking to blow away RPG fans again with Mass Effect 2. Will Mass Effect 2 be the game that cements the series as one of the great epic series in videogames?

Another Bioware custom is the fabulous voice acting. Lead by the original voice actors of Mass Effect 1, Mark Meer and Jennifer Hale who reprise their role of the male and female Commander Shepard, it's clear to see that Bioware was sure there would...

Mass Effect 2: Arrival Review for the XBOX360

 

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

 

The true travesty of the whole narrative is that you end up exactly where you started at the start of Arrival. Bioware only offers up the illusion of morality as they cannot change the coming threat of the Reapers and it cheapens the entire ending in...

Mass Effect 2: Arrival Review

 

Mass Effect 2: Arrival is a disappointing conclusion to a beloved series' second chapter.

Atmospheric environments ; The action is entertaining

No real decisions to make ; Glitches and other execution flaws ; No memorable dialogue or characters

Decent shooting does not make for a fitting finale to Mass Effect's second chapter, however--not when prior add-ons have set the bar so high. Compared to what has come before in this universe, Arrival is a husk--outwardly familiar, yet lacking the...

Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker

 

Better late than never! The latest piece of DLC for Mass Effect 2 , Lair of the Shadow Broker , was released last week. As it is priced at 800 points, more expensive than any of the DLC to date, the obvious question is: is it good enough to be worth...

Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker

 

Absolutely dripping with atmosphere, Lots of excellent combat, Exciting vehicle sequence, Two enjoyable boss fights.

Mass Effect 2's usual quirks pop up.

You do get to spend some quiet time with Liara, which is appropriate, given your history of friendship and, perhaps, romance. She doesn't join your crew as a permanent member, but that doesn't diminish the value of this great new addition to the Mass...

Mass Effect 2 DLC Review: Stolen Memory

 

Mass Effect 2 burst onto the scene at the beginning of this year and announced itself as an early candidate for game of the year. Its release was followed up

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

 

Mass Effect 2 is a game I would definitely not mind revisiting. The first released PDLC, Kasumi – Stolen Memory, was just the excuse I needed to make the return. I had high hopes for a continuation in the same riveting storyline, character development...

While what is there in the PDLC is fun to tinker with - particularly Kasumi's unique fighting abilities - it feels like too little too late in the game if you've already completed the missions available to you. Kasumi's loyalty mission and her...
