Mass Effect 2 Got Soul
Review - posted by Jason on Mon 8 February 2010, 01:53:47Tags: BioWare; Mass Effect 2
Bossman, one of the Romanian Codex contingent, reviewed Mass Effect 2 over at ComputerGames.ro, scoring it 85/100.
“So how does Mass Effect 2 stack up compared to the first one?” Well, it certainly has a lot more soul. More interesting characters. It shows the “other side” of the Mass Effect universe and neatly sets the stage for the final showdown that will take place in the last title of the trilogy. If you put it under a microscope, its shortcomings will become even more apparent and the game is now a shooter more than an RPG, but it really depends how much you’re willing to forgive for a story that’s very well presented.
I for one don’t regret the time spent in its company, but I expect Mass Effect 3 to dump the “streamlining” (can it even get worse than it is?), combine the best aspects of its predecessors and end the trilogy with a bang. Anything less will be unacceptable.
