Telegraph writes: "Mass Effect 2 presents reviewers with a daunting task. This a game so epic in scope, so impressive in size and boasting such a lengthy list of accomplishments that it's difficult to know where to begin praising it. Not only is it a magnificent visual and technical achievement, it boasts some of the best game design the medium has to offer. We have to get to ball rolling, so allow us to be blunt; BioWare's second instalment in their science fiction video game franchise – planned as a trilogy – is fantastic. In fact, even though the year has only just begun, we feel confident that when game journalists start compiling their "best of 2010" lists, Mass Effect 2 will probably place very near – if not right at – the top of it."
