Boomtown: Mass Effect 2 (X360) Review

Boomtown writes: "Hollywood quality doesn't really mean that much anymore - but I've seen that particular form of praise heaped on Mass Effect 2 many times this week. But 2009 was a year where the big summer offering was Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen - a movie so bad that Michael Bay could have done better by merely running two hours of celluloid between his buttocks.

Instead it would be nice to think that in 2010 good movies will be praised as videogame quality, on the strength of Mass Effect 2 you would think that possible. In truth though Mass Effect 2 is of a quality far beyond most games or movies. There's certainly less linearity, time wasting and poor design choices than most so-called blockbuster games of the last year. And the plotting, quality of dialogue and acting is far above the dross routinely shat out of the Hollywood product machine." (Mass Effect 2, Xbox 360) 10/10
