Avatar’s wearisomely mystical Na’vi have become the de facto blue-skinned extraterrestrials of our imaginations, and it’s a shame. Consider instead the Asari, a cerulean-hued, mono-gendered alien race with millennium-long life spans...

Generally I enjoyed ME2, but after everything it felt more like a long introduction to ME3 than a stand out game on its own terms – Empire Strikes Back this is not, but it’s not Matrix Reloaded either. Nothing of significance really happens bar the...

Mass Effect 2 starts with a bang but hits several bumps along the way. All of the problems from the first game are gone, but they seem to have taken a lot of the RPG elements with them. The story feels more straightforward this time around, too....

When last we left Commander Shepard he’d saved the day for humanity, but Council citadel and many lives were lost. Mass Effect 2 picks up right where Mass Effect left off. In fact one of the great things about this game is that you can upload your...

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...

Despite some changes away from a more traditional RPG by amping up combat and stripping out some of the character stat elements from the first game, Mass Effect 2 delivers a solid, fast-paced and well written sci-fi story that touches on a lot of...

Mass Effect 2 is a masterpiece. It solves the problems of the original game without introducing any new ones and expands upon the original's story by delving deeper into the consequences of a Reaper invasion and by adding a huge variety of new...

Bioware has never let us down. If you thought Mass Effect was a class act, its sequel is even better, tougher and with loads of improvements. Sequels generally have a handful of references to their predecessor, or at best, the story continues from...
