Cortney "Alethea" Stone writes "Though I was not able to actually play Mass Effect 2, I attended the closed showing of the game. Casey Hudson from Bioware headed the presentation, and it completely blew me away. Though some of the information and footage had already been revealed via the E3 preview trailers, there were plenty of new goodies to look at. Hudson noted that you will be able to import your save file from the first Mass Effect, and he said that they intended for you to take your character all the way through the trilogy.
The first thing I noticed was that the visuals are so much better. The first Mass Effect looked pretty good, but the sequel is just stunning."
