IGN Video Review for Mass Effect 2.
dying to play on my 360.
that was awesome when he staright up decked that chick! lol I can't wait to get this
Awesome score for an awesome game.
wow, that was an awesome video review, i'm so psyched for this game now, I'm even contemplating going a full soldier because the sniper and heavy weapons look awesome Tali is hawt
What's with all the disagrees? This game looks fantastic.
This game looks pretty good and all but for some reason it just looks like a TPS action/ adventure game with choices... Maybe I'm just to use to playing Final Fantasy type games??...
sounds like it's a good game. Good stuff for gamers and 360 owners. Sound like a big jump from the first one. If I wasn't saving for other games I would by this now. Aww well I'll check out the next chapter in sheppards story soon.
-Nice review. I'm very excited for this game.-
That was an awesome video review. I watched the whole thing and I don't think it gave away too much about the game. I am really impressed with how good it looks and all the improvements they have made like better menus, more customization options, better side missions and more refined combat.
...Except on PS3 :( I wish I never watched the review, because now I don't want to play anything but ME2.. C'mon BioWare, give the PS3 owners some love.
Great score for what will probably be the best RPG this year. As they said in the review, the voice acting and story is just miles ahead of the competition.
it's bioware dude, that goes without saying
-Totally. I've played many of their games--from Baldur's Gate to Jade Empire and from KOTOR to Mass Effect--and they have all been exceptional. Mass Effect 2 looks like their best yet.-
Wow, I can't wait for this game any longer. 4 more days, 4 more days, 4 more days...
F**************ck! My 360 just red-ringed, god damnit. How long does it take to send it out to Microsoft and get it back? Obviously more than 4 days. Anyone happen to know? ... I wanted to buy Mass Effect 2 on Tuesday... guess that's not gunna happen now... ***k
Lol. I feel your pain. Mine came back in about 3 weeks. There is no charge or anything and you get a free month of XBL.
About three weeks to a month I think. Funny story there. Mine red ringed long ago and it took a month. THE NEXT MORNING the one they sent red ringed again. I was furious. So I went to Costco and exchanged it that very day. Plus I got the HDMI and newer chipset. I don't know if Costco still takes them back though. Oh well good luck with your ordeal.
Thanks for the quick replies, damn that's really a let down. Was really excited to play Mass Effect 2.
oh that's bad, man ,try to install games if you have big hard drive, it reduces heat and really shorten load time, that is one underrated feature in the xbox 360 red is one thing but the worst thing ever is the infamous E-74 god I hate e74
Disagrees because my 360 didn't red ring? I wish :( On-Topic, good review, still looking forward to this game! Just going to have to wait a little longer.
It took me 18 days I believe total turnaround time. The refurb they sent me has been going strong for 2 years.
Well I've been in your shoes before and feel bad for you. If you simply can't wait you could always do the towel trick and get an extra months life.
just got to bestbuy and buy an arcade version on the credit card. Send out your RROD console to MS and use the arcade xbox you bought until it comes back from the shop. All you gotta do is unpackage the console, everything else can stay sealed. Be careful when you open the box so that you can seal it back up without it looking like it was opened. When your old console comes back from MS, return the console you got from bestbuy. Wa La!
They put "overly referential" as a negative point! Come on, last time I looked the original I had 40 hours registered in just one of my saves, I want the new game to refer to it, this is a big positive. :)
Im gonna get it, i think this game is great. This has been on my radar for some time. I haven't played the first game but if i enjoy this then im also gonna get the first one.
i think you should play ME 1 first then hit up ME2
even more on me 360 and 50 inch tv
Mass Effect is really cool I have the first one, gunna get the second one, with that said: Why is the entire gaming press in love with the fact a game has a branching storyline? Were choose your own adventure books really that good??? It's the same thing pretty much here. I personally don't like it - tell us the story how it's meant to be told, and polish that up a whole lot. Calling it the most 'personable rpg ever' several times is quite stupid as well, there's other customizable rpgs out there - this one's just good cause they nail the cinematic elements very well.
I've never played ME1, but I've had a few friends on 360 ta tell me about it, n I must say..it looks good. Looking forward ta checking this out. M loving (Dragon Age:Origins) n m gonna give (ME2) a try! Keep em coming Bioware! Game on. src=" http://fp.profiles.us.plays... width="230" height="155" border="0" /></a><br/>< a
Look droids, a score of 9.6...It's actually a game not a movie.
Sorry but GTA4 is a perfect 10. So by your logic its better than Mass Effect 2.
Patch you silly goose, no one cares what you think kid.
Pretty damn awesome. I really tried enjoying the first Mass Effect but it got a little bit too confusing to keep going. Its not Mass Effect's fault, its mine. I didn't wanted to play it. On topic: This is truly a awesome game and no 360 owner should miss out on this! PSN: TigerStyle510 360: StreeTL3gend
oh god give me a freakin break, this game is for internet nerds who never get laid. Go get lost in space and never come back BOTS.
haah yeah and ps3 fans are some ice cold MF's?? B.S fool. Play games, not consoles.
Jan 2010 belongs to ME2. just 3 more days :) PS. I don't really care about review score. It's bogus stuff. It all depends on if you like that type of game or not. Fallout 3 was flop for me while ME1 was one of the best RPG.
"Total game crashes do occur," that's quality.
I've had Uncharted 2 crash on me too...and there are a lot of glitches online too...does that make it total crap?
Wow defensive much? That man didn't call your precious ME2 crap. So what does U2 have to do with ME2?
Okay i don't understand how a game like mw2 can butcher the story for the sp, have a broken mp that hasn't changed that much. And me2 from how the review put improved on everything did it right, fixed a couple of the things that were an issue, made the game even better. Yet mw2 gets either the same score or a .1 less than a sequel that took everything good about the first one and made it better so the review says. Despite all the improvements and delivering a game that many gamers will love in their collection ign gives it the same score as mw2 roughly. So how does a game, that screams goty contender, that improves on everything the first one did according to the review, get the same score as a game that has changed little and definitely is not pushing it's genre forward in any visible way. regardless enjoy pc and 360 people
here are the benchmarks if you want to see how your pc will run it anyway http://www.pcgameshardware.... just click the reolution, it takes a second to load.
that's a great graphics card comparison page, dchalfont. I have two questions for you: Do you know a similar page for graphics card comparisons for x3:reunion? Do you also know approximately what the 360 gpu is equivalent to in terms of PC graphics cards?
MW2 is still the king of online gaming. You can all slag it off all you want. I and millions,,,,,yes ,,,,,MILLIONS of others are really happy with it thanks. So ME2 is great too and i'll be getting that, but leave the KING of online shooters out of it.This is all about ME2 not MW2.
total game crashes,stuck in scenes are not on my menu of a perfect game.sounds like not only a few but worrying.
The presentation, attention to details and characters for me are absolutely outstanding. This gets my gaming of 2010 off to a top notch start. Day 1 buy.
just wondering are this big spoilers in this review or nothing we haven't seen. i don't want to watch it if it's going to ruin the game especially considering i'm getting it in a few days
"Do you also know approximately what the 360 gpu is equivalent to in terms of PC graphics cards?" It falls between Nvivida's 7800GTX and ATI's X1900.
because this looks amazing and i dont if i should play ME2 without playin ME1?
Looks like an excellent game! I'll have to play ME first, I have it, but haven't played it yet.(too many games so little time!)
Awesome job bioware, looks fantastic. I'm going to try to borrow my friends 360 just to play this. She never uses it anyways. I just won't mention that ME2 is coming out. shhhhhhhhhhh*
People who already have this game know this is something good to play during the winter time. I don't understand why it never got a perfect score, everything is just good. The dialogue, the acting, the weird doctor who's a murderer.
but the first one was so bad im not intrested in the second one
ooohh men to many games and little time to play i just don't know what to do because i don't wanna miss this one! The competition this year just begins and 360 has the head with 2 point to 0 from PS3 because of Bayonetta and ME2 hope a comeback soon from PS3!!!
So the winner of the first month of the year iss...............360 by unanimous decision!!!!!
Kinda desperate since most of those games you listed is on another platform haha. I guess you still lose.
hope the other guys learn from this. *ahem* square.. *ahem*
if we had this,xbox would be doomed
...being broke is not going to be a decent enough excuse why not to buy this game.
and this one sould sell no different. MS would be fine without ME too kid. Don't kid yourself in thinking that one game can kill a system. Nice score for ME2 but it was already expected. I still think it could have been a 10. Can't wait.
