5 If only all games were this good.ArmouredShrimp | 27/05/2010 | See all ArmouredShrimp's reviews (4)I was a big fan of the first Mass Effect however it was not without its problems. Fortunately Mass Effect 2 takes pretty much every snag with its predecessor an fixes it. Its very common these days for a game to be over within about 10-12 hours but ME2 has got some serious mileage. If you want to be thorough, explore everything and complete all the side missions you can milk this for around 40+ hours and its gripping and engaging all the way through. The balance between RPG and shooter is spot on so there's something for fans of both genres. The cut scenes can be as long or a short as you like depending on how you want to handle conversations with the numerous interactive characters in the game, the conversations are fluid and easy to follow, you could even say this is bordering on being a film. Overall I would say this is probably the best 360 game available right now and extreme value for money too. If you have only enough cash for one game get this. Its awesome in every way.
