GamerZines: In preparation for Mass Effect 2's long awaited release at the end of the month, we take a look at the sequel's different classes and try to decide which one to go for when we finally boot up the game. Decisions, decisions...
Think I'll pick an engineer this time around. I want to use sniper rifles and some powers. I think the writer is too harsh on the Soldier class. It's tempting to use all the guns and if you still want to use the powers that is what your team are there for
I was an Adept in ME1 and I was a great shot (along with being good with biotics), don't know what the writer is talking about. For ME2, it'll be a toss-up between Adept and Vanguard.
I'll be going Engineer also, It was my fave class in the last game. I'm Just a bit unsure on their special power.
I'm just glad they gave the option to continue game saves but still change class
I have 3 classes maxed out, I wanted to do them all but it's a long game when you're trying to max stats.
I played as a Soldier the first game. I kicked ass. I will be a Soldier again this time around as well.
I'm with you on that, Soldier all the way. Let your squad mates do all the fancy work!
I guess that is the writers view, personally I prefer the soldier class. I have never played with the biotics they do not interest me in the slightest. Some people like me are just not fans of the wishy washy magical powers crap. But hey it's Mass Effect 2 one of the beautiful things about the game is you play it how you want to play it. There is no right or wrong class, just play the class that gives you the most fun.
I had that same notion on my first play through too. I'd tried the biotic powers the second time around and had a lot more fun.
im gonna keep my classes on my two characters cuz i think they look the coolest in me2 as well, adept and vanguard. but i honestly feel like i could play through the game once for every class, they look so much more diverse this time.
sentinel and vanguard maybe adept later
It's hard to say, with all the classes and levelling up options being dumbed down, there won't be as much diversity, there are like 6 skills max for each class, how console-ised of them. I used to like tech powers, so i'll probably go with that again. I personally don't know why anyone would choose the soldier class, it takes the game from being a tactical rpg....to just another shooter just by choosing that class. At least this time there will be heavy weapons for the soldier
Its a toss-up for me. Either Adept or soldier, they both look like the most fun available.
I was a Vanguard and a Soldier in the first one. So I don't see myself changing. Maybe after I complete it a couple of times I might switch it up, but I like those two classes so far. If they do it the same way they did with ME1 and give you a bonus for getting the specific power achievements then it shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
i dont like biotics or etc.. they are like magic in fantasy rpgs.. so in frpgs i always choose rogue.. then in this game i ll choose infiltrator.. then soldier.. like in the first game..
and Infiltrator on my Female Renegade
The one that stops shoving viral advertising down my throat.
The Adept looked really fun tossing things around ... until the Soldier video came along (wow! such varied weapons!). 1st playthrough: Adept ('coz its fun & I can see my teammates ahead of me in battle) 2nd playthrough: Soldier (blasting everything to bits!) 3rd playthrough: Engineer (tactical & strength in numbers) 4th playthrough: Infiltrator (invisible sniping) 5th playthrough: Sentinel (bulldoze my way through) 6th playthrough: Vanguard (charge with shotgun with no regard to safety)
Wow this game is awesome, I played vanguard my 1st 2 playthroughs, now ill go with sentinel so I can try tech moves, which I think is cool, don't have a problem with soldier
