When Mass Effect was released, it brought along for the ride excellent storytelling, a great cast of characters, pretty visuals, and top-notch voice actors. The game dealt players many surprises in that just when you thought everything was figured out, was safe, the game threw at you yet another jolt. It was a stellar effort.
Mass Effect 2 has a lot of what made the first experience an unforgettable one for many, the visuals are now upgraded and look obviously better, crisper. The voice actors are back and the story, although not as engaging as the first (we'll get into that later), was still respectable.
