4.5 Maybe one of the best games I have ever played. MarkeyMan90 | 15/02/2011 | See all MarkeyMan90's reviews (19) Everything about this game oozes excellence from its story, gameplay, character developement, graphics, beautiful realised cities and everything in between.Its story partly stems from the first Mass Effect that I haven't had the privilage to play, but does have its own story for its second outing. The story is fairly simple, with an Alien race called the Collectors abducting off World human colonies and using them for their own personal gain. Theres alot more to the story narrative as you play through the game, that I won't spoil here.Now onto the port that the game has been given, if someone had told me that the game was made primarily using the PS3 hardware I would believe them. It's better looking than its Xbox 360 cousin, due to the new Mass Effect 3 engine that is being used. The Blu-ray disc really helps to push out a very asthetically pleasing game.The music of course is still superb, with most of the composition undertaken by Jack Wall, who also worked on the first Mass Effect. It may not be as ethereal and dramtic as the first soundtrack, but its definetly a dabatable subject.The character developement, is something very unique that really makes you have an understanding of the characters on a personal and emotional level, it's difficult to find a game that induces the viewer/player with emotions so seamlessly which Bioware have achieved triumphantly.I could write so much more positives about this game, but I don't want to take away more of your time, which could be spent on playing Mass Effect 2; one of the best games of this generation.There was one negative about the game, but isn't particularly about the game per se. It's not quite the definitive version as it could have been, with not all of the DLC already on the disc, you do have to download most of it. That is the only negative that I can find about the game, which pretty much says it all really.
