Mass Effect II is a sequel to Mass Effect one, following the story of Captain Shepard in his or her journey in saving the Galaxy from Reapers. Just after the fight against Saren, Shepard dies and drifts in open space. Being collected by Cerberus and the lead man, The Illusive Man, Shepard has to investigate attacks on human colonies around the Milky Way, and discover that now the Reapers using some new insectoid called the Collectors.

You can choose from different classes to play, for example, a Soldier, Adept or Vanguard. A cover system is the main mechanic in the fight, as you have to think about fighting your enemy strategically. Your talents have a global CDR, so choose wisely. With one little addition, now your weapon has a loaded magazine of bullets, and you can run out of ammo if not using your weapon properly.

BioWare sticks to the tradition of dialogue and reputation system, as your actions still affect your position in the world. If you act like a hero and help everyone you meet, people will like you and your reputation will be Paragon. Do the exact opposite and a Renegade. Whom will you be?

As with the first Part of this legendary Story, I can only repeat myself: HOLEN! The whole Game is very well thought out, the Story wonderfully written (again, I thank God for Drew Karpyshyn), Companions all created wonderfully, so sometimes you really think it's real People because they're just so complex built up. Even if it's a little Reaccuding from the Controls, you quickly got used to it. Catch my fifth at the moment (?) Run on because it just has a damn hohne replay Value and you always find new Eastereggs or Sidequests and still make them still Damn after the umpteenth Time.

All the Feel like Mass Effect 1 with Better combat System and graphics. In Contrast to the first Part, not all Planets can be walked anymore, but many are only removed to Minerals, but this means that you no longer get completely lost in the Side Missions ^ ^ With memory from Part 1 of course a more beautiful Experience again, since many Decisions from Part 1 have serious Consequences in Part 2. Pro:-Gameplay-Traveling Story-Good Graphics-diverse planets-Places from Part 1 reappear-Combat System is much better-atmosphere-lots of Side missions, etc.-individual Characters you can deal with a lot-good Dialogue System Con:- Intermediate Frequencies sometimes spin briefly (not too disturbingly)-in the Subtitle there is sometimes the same Sense of the Said, but in other words (briefly confusing) conclusion: A very successful Sequel and a mega action Role-playing Game. Those who liked Mass Effect 1 will have Fun here, but I wouldn't start the Trilogy with this Part because otherwise you might not quite see the Story.

Mass Effect 2 is one of the best Games ever the whole series except andromeda is just great! In my opinion according to the best aspect of the game series is the incredibly good Story that really captivates you but also the gameplay is great and the decisions you have to make have extreme effect on the Game. I've played through the part 5 times and I'm still discovering new things:D And since the three parts form a whole big story it is more important than starting in any other game with part 1 and transferring its character to the next part because the decisions you have made in part one have massive impact on part two and three. Overall a super game I can recommend to everyone especially if you are into Stories ^^ Just to Info on Origin is the Rest of my playing time That here on Steam is not everything xD pros: Extremely good and successful story decision You make in the game The very much Tightness connection to other npcs that let you unfold almost real feelings ^^ fun fights and overall Geiles gameplay The character looks cool both with and without Armor The game often surprises with things that One was not expected ... I could write another half a Book, but I'd rather leave that! cons: Not open world By the age of the Game not the best Graphics but perfect in order
Finished on May 1, 2010 (Xbox 360) & February 21, 2016 (Origin). +Atmosphere +Characters +DLC +Features +Gameplay +Graphics +Lore +Music +Story

«That Ending!»
«Beaten more than once»
Mass Effect 2 — игра, которая по сравнению с первой частью, потерпела просто глобальных изменений. За удобство и кинематографичность игроки расплатились средним сюжетом. Геймплей стал бодрее, а история слабее, но игра от этого хуже не становится. Крайне положительные абсолютно заслужены, но странно то что первая часть таких ошеломительных отзывов не имеет, как по мне они обе заслуживает огромных похвал.
«Blew my mind»
Un RPG bastante correcto.
Любимая часть трилогии
