Story
Two years after Commander Shepard repelled invading Reapers bent on the destruction of organic life, a mysterious new danger has emerged. On the fringes of known space, something is silently abducting entire human colonies. Now Shepard must work with Cerberus, a ruthless organization devoted to human survival at any cost, to stop the most terrifying threat mankind has ever faced. To even attempt this perilous mission, Shepard must assemble the galaxy’s most elite team and command the most powerful ship ever built. Even then, doubters say it would be suicide. Commander Shepard intends to prove them wrong.

Gameplay
An space-based action RPG like its predecessor, gameplay in Mass Effect 2 revolves around the player's particular version of Commander Shepard and continuing development of this character as the game proceeds. As the game opens a variety of character classes are made available to the player, with talents, both exclusive and general, associated with each. With experience these talents are leveled up, resulting in the unlocking of related abilities and/or entirely new talents. The player has the ability to customize their Commander Shepard in a number of ways including physical appearance, gender, and certain aspects of their personal history, with the rub being that these choices can influence things like available missions, dialogue choices with non-player characters (NPCs), and character background.

Accompanying this main character are a number of preset supporting characters that the player can direct and develop relationships with, which again, will alter the outcome of the story. All the characters from the original game make an appearance in Mass Effect 2, but the immediate characters surrounding Commander Shepard are new. Additional new features that players can expect to experience include new alien races; a more realistic damage system; a new heavy weapons system allowing for maximum damage; a regenerative health system; a dramatic increase in the number of character animations available to Shepard; and updates to the dialogue mechanic used when conversing with NPCs.

Integration with the Original Mass Effect
Mass Effect 2 allows players of the original Mass Effect game to import save games to continue the story of their own Commander Shepard. In doing this, the decisions that were made in the first game will affect the events of the second game. In addition, characters from the first game will return, as long as they were not killed off by the player in the first game. On the other hand, new players coming to the series for the first time in Mass Effect 2 will start a brand-new character, discover the events of the previous games as they progress and embark on a thrilling stand-alone adventure that does not require the previous game for play.

Key Features

  • Futuristic Weapons - Choose from 19 different weapons, including devastating heavy weapons that can end a battle in seconds.
  • Elite Specialists - Recruit up to a dozen of the galaxy's most dangerous operatives to help you in your mission. Train and equip your team to survive insurmountable odds.
  • Explore the Galaxy - Scan planets to uncover unique secret missions in the Mass Effect universe.
  • Integration with Original Mass Effect - Players of the first Mass Effect can import save games to continue the story of their own Commander Shepard. New players will find a thrilling stand-alone adventure awaits them, a polished and action packed journey that surpasses the first game in nearly every possible way.
  • Intense Third-Person Combat - Increased intensity with precision shooter controls to let you control the action and overcome insurmountable odds.
  • New Damage System - New location based damage system allows for targeting of key weak points, blasting off limbs, igniting enemies, or crippling and disabling enemy troops.
  • Character Customization - Choose a player class, customize your appearance, and tailor your own abilities and strengths. As you progress, so do Shepard’s abilities.
  • Improved Dialogue Mechanic - Improved NPC conversation system where Commander Shepard can take matters into your own hands – interrupting or using force to get the answer required.

4.0 out of 5 stars Probably my favourite game in my collection Feb. 25 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Collector
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The only issues that kept me from giving ME2 a five-star rating were a couple of map bugs where I found myself stuck and had to re-load my game, losing mission progress; and the fact that the dialog system still sticks you with certain default selections that you can trigger when trying to skip NPC dialog, which is irksome when you're on repeat play-throughs and you want to get quickly to the dialog wheel and end up giving a response that closes off subsequent dialog you wanted to try. To me, 5 stars is perfection, and while Mass Effect 2 is really, *really* good, I can't describe it as "perfection."

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Great March 1 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Collector
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Great RPG, Great Story, Great Characters. If you have, or even if you haven't, played the first installment (Mass Effect) then you have an idea of what you are getting into. If you haven't played the first installment, I'm told you will still get a summary of the main events from the first game, so you are not missing much. However, the story in the first game was epic, the characters were lively, and the gameplay was great. Now, it's pushed to the next level. If you played the first game, your choices carry over into this one. Someone you may have taken the time to help out during your adventures might make an appearance here. If you had some of your team mates die, they won't make an appearance here. It's a great way to move along the trilogy and see how it all connects. Finally, if you love RPGs, or just want a game for the story within it, then this is a great buy. With the collector's edition you get an extra armor and weapon in-game plus access to the Cerberus Network. Not to mention a great art book, metalic case, and some more.
