"Best game eve made? Yes"
First off, Mass effect 2 is one of the greatest games and most people are 100% sure that nothing even compares. Halo or Call of duty don't even come close, want to know why? Because they both don't have a good story to back it up, you just shoot everything and that's it, great game. But this review is not for those games lets talk about Mass effect 2.
The graphics are ground breaking to say the least, everything was great to look at and no lag or glitches or anything like that. Now, I know that a game does not need to have good graphics to be a great game, but when you;r talking about graphics as good as these, they need to be talked about. The controls are very easy to get use to, so that's out of the way.
Now the audio may be the best part of the game because its so fantastic and so well done that the talking scenes are incredible and make you want to listen to the talking scenes even though the game allows you to skip through them. You have a variety of options while talking, good or evil. (paragon and renegade) Paragon is when your a hero and your nice to people. While Renegade is when your a total jerk and don't care about the death of other people. All of these options completely effect EVERYTHING. Such as, how your commander Shepard looks, how your teammates act around you, the ending of the game, and what Mass effect 3 will be like sense you can import your file and all your choices will cross over and effect the next game. Plus, if you do another play through for the game you'll get a different experience each time.
You play as Commander Shepard, An alliance marine held bet on saving the galaxy whatever it takes. You start to work with a large human group called Cerberus. Remember that they kind of have a shady past. Your mission is to find out why human colonies are disappearing without a trace. You also must assemble a team to fight against the unknown army. In order to survive you must gain they're trust.
Game play 9/10
The game play is more different than Mass effect 1, but kept the overall impression. This is 3rd person shooter at its finest. You have a variety of weapons and powers (depending on your class). You also have many different opponents and they have a variety of health bars. (health, shields, barriers, armor or all of them.) many Halo or Call of duty fan boys complain that there is to much talking and not enough fighting even though this game has a longer story so it has way more action and a great amount of perfect audio.
Overall score: 10/10
In the end, Mass effect 2 is an outstanding game.
