Playstation Universe Review: Mass Effect 2 (PS3)‎

PSU: Some role-playing games are an endless grind, encouraging players to head out into a sandbox environment and slay beasts for three hours at a time. In return, you might — if you're lucky — reach the next level or get your hands on that elusive piece of armor you've been working toward. Extremely slow-paced and ridiculously in-depth, other RPGs are so statistical that players spend more time flicking through the flood of menus (fiddling around with various stats, fixing weapons and making potions) than actually "playing" the game. Indeed, while such games do strike a cord with certain types of players, it isn’t until an RPG manages to cement that fine balance between storytelling, inventory management, exploration and all-out action that it really strikes gold.

The story is too old to be commented.
