Story
Two years after Commander Shepard repelled invading Reapers bent on the destruction of organic life, a mysterious new enemy 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, they 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 a 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 cripple and disable 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game sequel ever! April 4 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Waited for this game for 2 years since the sequel was announced, the game does not disappoint.
Most of the issues and shortcomings of the first brilliant game were addressed by the developers at Bioware.
All the missions in this game are very varied by their settings and objectives.
The side missions are better than the main mission; graphics are the best seen on the 360.
The combat system is much improved and closer to Gears of Wars.
Some of the RPG aspects have been diluted; hopefully this will be addressed in the third game.
The story line was great and very compelling and set-ups the final battle with the Reapers.
For me, as a power player who goes through every possible areas of the game, it took me 35 hours to complete the game.
The game is shorter than the first game; I understand that because of the shortage issue with the DVD setup of the 360, at two discs it was already stretching the 360 glaring storage shortcomings.
My hope is that for the third game, Bioware ignores the storage capacity of the 360 and gives us much longer game with all of the ideas and improvements that they will make after creating this game.
I just cannot wait for the third game,
In the meantime, I am going through another playthrough of this fantastic game on the insanity difficulty level.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 2 is for twice as good Jan. 31 2010
By Tom Douglas TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mass Effect 2 is a big improvement on the original, which itself was very good, although a little flawed.

Bioware have moved the game forward by tackling the flaws, and full credit to them for that.

You will notice:
- Vastly improved graphics. The overall 'look' is the same, but it has a lot more polish, and is more immersive as a result
- Smoother gameplay. The action is more fluid and more immediate. They have probably made 50 different tiny tweaks which add up to a big leap forward.
- Less customisation. This might be a downer for some, but it makes for a slicker experience. The essentials are there, it just interferes less with gameplay.

You can import your character from the original which gives the sense of it being more of a second chapter than a sequel, although as noted the graphics and gameplay have leapt forward.

More immersive, more real, slicker, faster, smoother, this is a very very worthy sequel.

Five stars.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mass effect 2 is one of those games who just comes out and grabs you. The story, and voice acting are at par with the best animated sci-fi movies in existence. The game play is simple and fun, and the entire pace moves forward in a way that makes you want to play for one more minute...hours at a time.

The plot is pretty simple, you are Commander Sheppard you've been brought back to live after being dead for two years. And your former enemies are your current sponsors. You work for an organization where the ends justify the means and the ends is the survival and dominance of humanity at any cost. You may choose the path of amorality or morality, or you may choose to play a little of both.

The game's best feature to me is the fact that the choices you made in the original game come back in this one which adds to the original's replay value and the game's overall immersion factor. The second best feature is the revamped paragon and renegade system. In the previous game the paragon option was the "boyscout" route and the Renegade choices made the character appear like a brutish jerk. Now, the paragon option makes the character seem more fair minded and respectful of life while the Renegade is more of a anti-hero type character who gets the job done whatever the cost.

There are a few weak areas in the game notably the exploration and resource gathering system and the weapon which seems to be you get either a quick firing weapon with little power and high ammo or a high powered weapon with slow fire and low ammo capacity. It could be a lot worse, and these small weaknesses don't take anything away from a great game. Overall this is the best sci-fi game in a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest game ever May 7 2014
By Rib
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
That about sums it up. But the Mass Effects are a trilogy and i strongly recommend doing Mass Effect 1 before this one.

It is a Space Opera, it has story and fighting. You can put it on casual fighter (easy mode) and enjoy the superb story unfolds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mass Effect 2 April 11 2013
By Josh
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I choose the rating of 4 stars because this game definently deserves it. The gameplay was great for the year it was made, and the story was very interactive, in the way if u didnt do something with your teamates they could die in the final mission. But one of the main reasons i decided to get this was, after playing the first one, and falling in love with the story line, so continuing on with that was a good idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost good at the first game Jan. 17 2013

I am a huge fan of the bioware series, however I was a little torn when EA acquired the company. The ending of the third game was so bad I was emotionally injured by it. However the second game still had some of the spirit of the first game and for that I give it a 5/5!

After Mass Effect 1's success, Bioware had a tough task in making a second part that would follow every actions that the players took, but also a convincing story that still had believable characters, awesome acting, excellent production design values, and an improvement over some of the first game gameplay weaknesses.

So after two and a quarter years of work, they released their work and I think it is a great job.

In this second part of the Shepard story, my Commander “Bess” Shepard dies at the hand of the Collectors, until Cerberus, a pro-human rights organization, resuscitates her, giving her a stronger and more dangerous body tn she did, and offers her a position among their crew. So as she fights the Collectors on a new and stronger space ship, while still trying to prove the Reapers' existence, Commander Shepard has to recruit her former and new comrades for her mission, rekindle or have a new romance, and reconsider life after being dead for two years.

Visually the game is sharper than ever. The character designs are awesome, and the models look closer to reality than before. As usual, you can either play a male of female Shepard,, use your Mass Effect 1 saved game to import your Shepard's actions into the second game, but you can also customize your character's face, since Shepard has died, and either give his former or new powers (ex: going from Soldier to Engineer). Even though you can decide to keep your former powers, what's awesome is that you can decide to add an extra power that one of your teammates employs, even if his work has nothing to do with yours. You just have to complete his personal quest and you can get his powers if you succeed in getting his loyalty.
