Digital Chumps writes: "The first Mass Effect functioned along the same lines as the original Assassin's Creed; a fantastic design concept and outstanding presentation couldn't conceal overbearing repetition. Mass Effect wasn't close to being a bad game, but it was hard to walk away feeling Bioware had fully executed on Mass Effect's (and their) potential. Thankfully, again like Assassin's Creed II, Bioware not only learned from the shortcomings of the first game, but tuned the dial to eleven and jammed an astounding amount of content into the sequel. Mass Effect 2 is a fantastic game and, after nearly forty hours in five days, I think it's one of the finest RPGs, western or otherwise, ever created. It's safe to say that if you like games, you will like this game - but in order to talk about what I found so endearing, I will need to spoil minor aspects of the narrative. Nothing in the way of jaw dropping plot points, but a bit about the characters you meet and trace amounts of their corresponding interaction."
