Mass Effect 2 is a third-person action game that was developed by BioWare Corporation. The game was released on Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows on January 26, 2010. The game takes place in the future, after the events of Mass Effect. Also available as a Collector's and Digital Deluxe Edition.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Mass Effect 2 is a third-person role playing shooter video game, much like its predecessor Mass Effect. Like the first game, the player has the ability to pause the game mid-battle and issue commands to the player's allies, as well activate their own personal powers. The player also has the ability to upgrade their armor and weapons over time as the player locates upgrades. Many changes were made over the first instalment, such as removing the confusing mod & upgrade system for weapons and armor, and introducing an ammo constraint for weaponry in lieu of an overload mechanic.
The game allows the player to play as their player from the previous game, or start as a whole new Commander Shepard. Some of the ways to customize the character include selecting their gender, race, and personal history.
Reception[edit | edit source]
Mass Effect 2 received generally positive reviews. GamePro gave the game a 4.5 out of 5, stating that "the games' build up was great but the ending left disappointment".
