Why am I mentioning this. Two reasons: I don’t have time to put any thought into a post as I am extremely busy (which rules out most economics 😉 ), and it is the best game I’ve every played. It is like a good movie, with entertaining action and a strong story. I figure this is a blog, so I can really write about anything anyway as long as I’m not breaking the law 😉
Experiences during the game are strongly based on what you did in the prior game – quite a breakthrough for games.
I haven’t wanted to replay a game this much since Knights of the Old Republic 2, and I haven’t appreciated the story and the tie in of characters this much in a game since Ultima 7. As a result, I’ve immediately lent my copy of the game to a friend so I can’t play it anymore and can get some work done.
My one qualm is that Bioware seems to find a way of making the sex scenes in their games more and more uncomfortable with each game they release. I don’t know what it is, it just feels like other emotions/interactions in the game are treated with such depth (and awesome amounts of moral ambiguity), whereas the “love/sex” chains feel more contrived.
Note: I seriously recommend playing through Mass Effect 1 and then importing your save game for Mass Effect 2, it just adds that little bit to the experience.
