Amazon.ca Product Description

The second chapter in the Mass Effect trilogy takes you to the darkest reaches of space, where you must uncover the mystery behind the disappearance of humans across many worlds. Prepare yourself for a suicide mission to save mankind. Travel the galaxy to assemble a team of soldiers and combat specialists, and launch an all-out assault on the heart of enemy territory.

From Amazon.ca

Mass Effect 2 is the sequel to BioWare's hit space-based role-playing game (RPG), Mass Effect. A single player adventure, Mass Effect 2 allows players to continue the adventures of the fully customizable series hero Commander Shepard, as you take on a whole new adventure and a new cast of supporting characters. Additional new features include the ability to import game save files from the original Mass Effect game to continue the adventure in an unbroken fashion, a new damage system, a new, more flexible dialogue game mechanic and more.

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 A definite GOTY contender! April 4 2010
By S. Dave
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played the first Mass Effect and loved it! But there were a few complaints, such as the annoying Mako vehicle, and some of the boring leveling up aspects. ME2 takes everything you loved about ME1 and fixes everything you hated about it. The fighting is better, the character development is better, the story is more engaging, and the game is just a more polished version.

One word of advice, although the game is still amazing to play by itself, I urge you to play ME1 before getting into ME2. It is so very cool to see all the decisions made in ME1 carry over into the sequel, however small they may have been. Considering ME1 is so cheap right now, you have no excuse not to!

5.0 out of 5 stars The 2 is for twice as good Jan. 31 2010
By Thomas Douglas TOP 500 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Masterpiece May 18 2010
By E. Lo
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Absolutely a masterpiece of a game in terms of story. You don't need to play ME1 first but it is a lot better if you have played it before so you are better immersed into the story of ME2. The choices you made in ME1 (provided you have finished ME1) will come back in ME2.

ME2's story isn't as good as the ME1 but it could be building up for the final chapter in this masterful trilogy of a game (ME2 constantly reminds you to save your finished saved game for ME3)

AI's improved over ME1 and the micro-management of weapons is gone from ME1 (and it's a good thing).

Gameplay has improved drastically over ME1 as well, it's one of those gears of war cover based 3rd person. The cover based shooting aspect isn't as good as Gears of War but the ability of controls the powers of your 2 party members (you can pick from a bunch of them - each of them has different abilities) more than make up for it in terms of strategy. Shooting stuff up will only get you so far but with the right party members and the appropriate power selections, the harder enemy will go down quicker than just shooting them all the time.

Graphics on ME1 was quite good but this one absolutely blows that away. Amazing cinematics, amazing game play graphics (which is why I don't understand why Dragon's Age graphics was so bad - it's by the same company!!!)

Must play for xbox360 and rpg fans. If you like Gears of War type shooter games but with a waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy better depth and story, this is a must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing but good words March 4 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Actually, there is not much to say about this game. It is hard to find some real flaws to it, as the story is even more large and immersive than the first of the series and all of its flaws (mainly graphics-related) have been corrected. The leveling and inventory systems may seem strange at first but they are in fact very intuitive and make a lot of sense (you don't carry tens of guns and armors on yourself...) It's even better if you continue from a save file from the first game as you get to see the influence your actions have had.

5.0 out of 5 stars If only movies were this good. June 29 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mass Effect 2 is the sequel to what is becoming one of the best franchises in gaming. You'll be hard pressed to find a better reason to play your 360. From the beautiful graphics, top notch voice acting and a story that is one of the most original in years Mass Effect 2 shouldn't be missed. The only thing I can say is play of the original is almost required, seeing how that game is just as good that's hardly a bad thing.
