I've been putting the hours in on the 360 version and it has been a fantastic ride. All the pre-release talk about making the game more of a shooter and beefing up the combat had me worried that Mass Effect 2 would forget that it was the characters and story that really made the original work so well. I needn't have worried - Mass Effect 2 is still a game where conversation is as important as combat. I won't reveal any spoilers but so far the plot has not disappointed."
