One Paragraph Review: Mass Effect 2

by Meghan Watt

While definitely amping up the shooter element of the series, Mass Effect 2 doesn’t evoke the same feeling of awe accomplished by its predecessor.  ME2 merely touches on the story that so enthralled gamers, replacing Reapers and the battle for mankind’s recognition for a formulaic planet-to-planet search for new recruits.  Still, the revamped battle system, brilliant dialogue and heavily alterable ending keep Mass Effect 2 from completely succumbing to the sequel syndrome.
