5 Best Bioware Game yet!Frazzal | 05/02/2010 | See all Frazzal's reviews (9)The first Mass Effect game was nothing short of fantastic, and is one of my all time top games to go back and play again. Mass Effect 2 manages not only to deliver just as good a game but exceeds the first one making it just about one of the most perfect games I've ever played.Mass Effect 2 cleverly builds on the all the good points from the first game, and anything that didn't quite work has instead been stream lined and re done to work this time round.An example is simple things such as the inventory, which in the first game was slightly annoying in the sense that there was too much to sort through and choose in terms of weapons armor and even ammo. Mass Effect 2 has reworked it all making it easier simpler to use, instead of collecting loads of different bits of equipment your team will upgrade to what ever is best, different ammo types can be selected by just the touch of simple button instead of taking time up from enjoying the game.What they've really done here though is not simply clone what they did in the first Mass Effect, they've built upon it enhanced it and generally approved the game in every single way.But as always what really draws me to the game is the characters and the story, and here is where Mass Effect 2 is at its strongest. This game leaves you eagerly waiting for the third game which I hope is already being worked on.Having given all this praise there are a few things I felt could have been done differently, for one thing you can now visit planets and scan them for resources. This is a fun little side thing to do and is needed for different upgrades you want to use, what is slightly annoying is that you constantly have to hold the one mouse button down as you scan which can become quickly tiresome. What would have been nicer is just a simple one click and you entered into scanning mode and a simple click again to exit scanning mode. Its a small complaint but there's a number of small things like that which could have been done slightly better, but seeing as this has been released on a number of different systems is understandable.The other only real complaint I have is some scenes are lacking in music as in there feels to be very little music at all at times. Some scenes I felt could have become much more powerful or moving if some music had been put to them.Other then that Mass Effect 2 does not put a single foot wrong in this excellent game, buy it now the universe needs saving!
