BioWare's sci-fi universe was exquisitely rich and detailed in story, and pleasingly deep in the relationships that you built with your crew. And thanks to the quality of the script and voice acting, even the minor characters rarely slipped into easy cliché.
Set in a huge universe, in which it genuinely feels possible to finish the game with a huge percentage untouched, Mass Effect 2 is a very similar game to its predecessor.
Great action combat with a fantastic story.
* Still gaming's best-told story
* Improved combat and balance
* Superb acting and script
* No horrendous space buggy
* How long until 3? 10.0/10
