Mass Effect 2 video

Mass Effect 2 video

Mass Effect 2 was finally released on Playstation 3 a bit more than a week ago and here is a video of this first class space opera. Instead of showing the real first 10 minutes of the adventure - that are in fact included in the demo which is available on PSN - we decided to show you the very first mission Shepard will have to complete with Cerberus. Needless to say that you should definitely get this game if you have not played ti yet.

I LOVE the games soooooo much!

Played the first on 360, ME2 on PC and bought PS3 version as well (controller FTW).

Can't wait for Mass Effect 3!

Only thing I wish they could do is to make the animations much better.
Everything feels so stiff and robotic when you move your character, I wish it was more like Dragon Age.
Fix it Bioware!

And a bit more RPG elements wouldnt be bad, as long as its not tedious to do.

For me this is the best trilogy of this generation, a lot of deth in the game, graphics...

Can't also wait for Mass Effect 3!

Shame that the ps3 owners couldnt play the first one to make al those choices...

Alot of the main choices were in the digital comic, sure it doesnt beat of playing the actual first, but considering there is NO WAY of Mass Effect 1 coming, this is the best they could do to keep the PS3 up to speed.

ME2 was a good game.......but a disappointment imo. Too much like GoW and they polished all the things that made ME1 great out of the game. There are hardly any RPG or tactical elements in it, if any at all.

The plot was laughable (the sidemission stories where better than the main mission stories). It completely lacked any notable antagonist (Sarren who was fleshed out, was believable and could be reasoned with throughout the game vs some random bug you see once at the end for two seconds!). And the endboss was so bad and unrelated that it could have been straight out of a Hollywood film (probably as low as you can get).

I'd like to believe that this is the usual 'bad' middle part (filler content so to speak) in a storyline but since EA took over bw has been heading down a completely different path. The DA2 demo definitely didn't bode well.

About the game

What's up?

    MikeManiac61 @alimokrane: I would say that the Soul series is "challenging" than hard. Like Grift said, difficulty modes can be poorly designed and give unfair advantages to the AI IMO. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A lot of them do.. but sometimes difficulty modes are poorly designed too. But that's nothing new. People have been phoning in hard and easy modes for decades. (4 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Why can't the AAA games have hard modes like those games, that's what's annoying... (4 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @GriftGFX: Nioh and Neir (not yet). They are on my list. I played Dark Souls 1, I played and that's hard for sure. But those games are very few.... we need more! (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Also there are plenty of non-FPS multiplayer games. But maybe if you're looking for a challenge you should be more open to stepping outside your comfort zone. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you played Nioh, Dark Souls 3, and Nier Automata? (4 Hours ago)
