Mass Effect 2

Well I completed Mass Effect 2 and I must say I found it rather entertaining especially compared to its predecessor, when Mass Effect was released it caused a lot of waves in the ocean of the gaming world at the time from what I can remember was for its strong story, and an almost “give you total control” command system over your team and the interactivity and decisions system. I’m a sucker for a good storyline so when I saw Mass Effect on sale I jumped right on it only to be overall disappointed. I found the Command System of your team mates bugged at times one has to repeat the same command too often for the AI to actually execute what you would like or they may get stuck in a previous command and even for an “Action RPG” I found the main story to be rather short, while the remainder of the game was built up and lengthened with side quests but in all fairness it did have replay value due to the several moral decisions whether to follow the law or break it and the several Combat Classes that one can choose to play as amongst other things.

Transition to the Sequel

At first glance “Mass Effect 2” is different in appearance and feel than “Mass Effect”. The bright, welcoming, warm colors and shades of white and blue have been replaced by darker toned colors and shades such as red and black, the atmosphere is what I could call more serious or perhaps mature and  this continues throughout the entire game. After what you discovered in the first game there isn’t much to be jumping for joy about and of course being a title released 2 years later the graphics is superior and especially the detail in characters as for one is very obvious.
