Topic. Don't really care to play 1, so just straightforward answer would he fine.

Wikipedia the first games synopsis

The 2nd is phenominal!!!! And the gameplay is 100x better than the super weak shooting mechanics of the first...it hasn't aged well were as the 2nd game is night n day !

So there ya go bleeding heart

Not sure man...I played the first game a few days ago. (Just bought METrilogy) and the first games story is great but the gameplay is choppy, lacks impact, and isn't nearly as visually impressive as ME2. I say play the first, but don't let it discourage you from the greatness that is 2 and most of 3

:) enjoy tho

Most certainly. I still will play ME1 through one day, but I didn't care for the shooting mechanics in the first at all. When the combat relies on that mainly, it doesn't make for very fun experience. ME2 and ME3 fixed that and are incredibly enjoyable.

The story, world setup, dialog, characters and the end ~1/4 of the game are pretty amazing, even the best moments in the whole series to the point where its worth slogging through its janky gameplay. The comic or a wiki search just aint gonna cut it, not for this series.

if youre really worried about it then put the game on easy and only do the story stuff. youll finish the game in a good 8hours and you can move onto 2.

ME1 is the best, so... you can do whatever you want, but it would be kind of dumb to play out of order IMO. Also, the comic sucks as does wiki, ignore those jokers. There's no substitute for playing it.
