Mass Effect 2 review

Reviewed January 28, 2010

Mike Suskie says: "Defending Mass Effect has never been easy, since the gameís unpolished mechanics, cumbersome driving segments and barren, repetitive environments form a strong case against it. The case against it is so strong, in fact, that I often have questioned my own enthusiastic evaluation of the game. So thank you, BioWare. Thank you for taking all of the criticism to heart, for fixing nearly everything that was wrong with the first game and for giving me a sequel for which I no longer need to make excuses. Mass Effect 2 is as extraordinary as its predecessor was, but it no longer needs justification. It really is that good."

Gary Hartley says: "If Iím struggling to record my thoughts on Mass Effect 2 itís because it excels on so many fronts and does so many things right that itís hard to settle on just one thing. So Iíll ramble in a word document instead, talk about a few things that caught in my mind and then reveal that Iíve hardly scratched the surface."
