Comic-Con: Mass Effect 2's Elevator Improvements

BeefJack writes: "Elevators in Mass Effect quickly became a punch line that required no setup. It wasn't only because it was one of the few things that could be criticized about the game. Their obvious use as loading masks barely kept players more immersed in the game than a loading screen would have."

A contender for GOTY 2010 (though I think GOW III should take it)

Mass Effect 2 (360)
God of War 3 (PS3)
Halo Reach (360)

I thought it was a clever way to not having a loading screen and keep the feeling of being in the gaming world.

But it was still something that lasted way too long. I would suspect that in the future, there will be elevators that travel much faster than the ones we have today. I don't see the current ME elevators as a bad thing, just a place to see some improvement.

It's quite clever, but done badly. Which makes the point of it moot.

It's kind of believable on Citadel (since that place is impressively huge), but there's no good reason it should take you a minute and a half to get to your own hangar. Not for the fastest ship in the galaxy.
