Nice side quests.
Great combat system.
Choices can have consequences.
Solid role play.
Well written script.
Great mini-games (mining/hacking).
Well tuned action.

Cerberus Network is clunky.
Main story is full of holes.
If your choice crosses the designers whims, the designers win.
Too many incongruities with original game.
Side missions can be distracting.
Lots of text can be tedious.
Vehicle handling is a bit irritating.
Oversimplified equipment management.
A few boss fight gimmicks.

Mass Effect 2 may be yet another title published by EA but don’t let that put you off.Designed, coded, drawn and promoted by BioWare, Mass Effect 2 is, obviously, a follow-up to the popular sci-fi single-player PRG Mass Effect, but it’s had...100
