5 out of 5 eggsMass Effect 2 in my opinion is the best title that Xbox 360 has put out

Pros: Mass Effect 2 is an amazing role playing game (RPG) and in my opinion its the best title that Xbox 360 has put out. This game has a great storyline and you will find yourself playing it over and over again to see the different outcomes. The game has great downloadable add-on content that only adds to the story. The exploration aspects of the game is great as well. I can't say enough good things about this game. If you like Science Fiction, Shooters, and or RPG's this game is for you, it has it all.

Thank you for reading my review, if you have any questions feel free to email me, I would be happy to help you with any questions you have.

5 out of 5 eggsMust own game

Pros: - FUN game. If you have not played it yet, you are missing out severely!

- Included DLC code.

- Free shipping.

- For me, it is actually is cheaper to purchase games on Newegg. Will be considering Newegg for future gaming purchases.

Cons: Had a bit of a snafu on shipping. This item was ordered with 2 other items; however, this item was located in a Newegg warehouse on the other side of country (East). I ordered on a Wednesday and received part of my order on Friday and this game and a new controller on the following Monday. However, with free shipping, can't really complain.

Other Thoughts: Once you know, you Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat story, great game, highly recommended for everyone.

Pros: Mass Effect 2 has a great game and a great story. It is absolutely one of the best games I have ever played, and I highly recommend it to anyone regardless of whether or not you have played the first Mass Effect.

Cons: If you have a save file from the Mass Effect game, it will take information regarding decisions and outcomes from that game and they will influence the characters you meet and the experiences you have in Mass Effect 2. However, if you do not have a save file from Mass Effect, the game has preset outcomes for all those variables, and there is no way to change those settings short of playing the first Mass Effect through and then loading a save file.

Other Thoughts: I bought this in March of 2011, but listed my ownership as more than a year because I borrowed a copy from a friends for a few months for my initial play-through of the game before buying a copy of my own.

2 out of 5 eggsnot my thing

Pros: Graphically the game has been improved a lot over the first. The game itself plays a lot better than the first as well. Can also carry over character data from first game if you have it. Introduces a few new neato mechanics like research, loyalty, and ship upgrades.

Cons: Focuses so much on being more of a FPS that the RPG aspect seems like an afterthought- some people think that's great, I didn't like it. Game design has also become extremely linear, so most missions are literaly running a one way path from start to finish. Game progression is also very restrictive where you are forced into story missions which is REALLY annoying if you're not prepared. ME2 also threw out different weapon brands in favor of purchasing powerups for specific weapon types. The upgrades tend to be expensive and the game is tight with giving you credits.

Other Thoughts: I kinda liked Mass Effect 1, but the second was changed so much and dumbed down that its not the same game. Most of the game really did feel like an FPS on rails with some crude RPG features tacked on for me. Didn't like it.

2 out of 5 eggsBoo!

Pros: Kinda Fun.

Cons: Too much movie and not enough game. Game rushes you to go in a direction and then gives you no chance to play but just shows a long movie where everyone dies.

Other Thoughts: I guess that's what you get for hearing about a game on youTube.

4 out of 5 eggsWorth the money plus some more.

Pros: A great story line. The game is almost worth buying just for the screenplay. I also really enjoyed the action sequences. Top notch stuff.

Cons: Its all the in between stuff that gets pretty dull. You have to mine for minerals to get weapons upgrades. This practice takes up the majority of game play if you want to trick out your characters with best gear available.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing game

Pros: Love the sequel to the greatest game ever!

Cons: Seems to almost have moved backwards with the items and stuff. You can personalize your armor color, but not your armor type and look. No more interchangeable weapon upgrades and ammo.

Other Thoughts: Still an AWESOME game!

5 out of 5 eggsTrade Time for Convenience

Pros: I won't get into writing a game review for this item, as if you are interested in purchasing it, this venue is more for understanding the process of the purchase. Read "Other Thoughts" for my opinion of the game.

The price is very reasonable, and by shopping around, I've seen that certain stores will the game at varying prices, plus any applicable tax. Price-wise, with the free shipping, Newegg is the way to go and no store I've seen it in carries it for this price currently, and you don't have to get in the car and go over to a store location that may or may not have it.

Cons: However, the shipping time for my order took just under a week; something to consider if you're looking for a fast pick up. This will most likely not be a purchase you see on your porch the next morning.

Other Thoughts: I can safely say this sequel has moved in the right direction. The graphics are gorgeous and more cohesive than its predecessor, and it seems they have also streamlined the loading times for textures; no more seeing random details missing off of newly loaded characters/doodads.

The music, once again, is beautifully compelling, so soundtrack lovers will not be disappointed.

Gameplay has changed in Mass Effect 2 significantly, becoming more of a versatile 3rd person shooter/rpg hybrid. In combat you'll see more of the shooter elements, but these qualities have been immersed in a fashion that makes the game more tactical with shorter, faster-paced firefights.

Decision making in the game is still as black and white as ever, but dialog seems less clunky and fabricated, offering a more detailed world of options. In addition, players will see more character development in their teammates than before.

Mass Effect 2 is a braver, greater game, and if you liked the first, you love the

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Action/RPG

Pros: Excellent storyline, good replay value. Good mix of customization and squad-based action.

Cons: good/bad dialogues are black and white, either it's good or bad. No real HARD choices to make, like in Dragon Age: Origins.

Other Thoughts: Very enjoyable game, I recommend it to anyone looking for a great RPG. Also check out the prequel to this, it's fantastic as well.
