Tom Goldman: "It's safe to say that one of BioWare's primary goals in the development of Mass Effect 2 was to fix everything complained about in the original. Mass Effect is still one of my top RPGs in recent history despite complaints about certain aspects: a hard-to-navigate inventory system, repetitive and time consuming Mako exploration, and combat issues. These were nothing major, but memorable frustrations nonetheless. Mass Effect's primary strength was in its storytelling, but that doesn't mean BioWare isn't trying to improve on that too. In short, with Mass Effect 2 BioWare wants to fix everything that was wrong with the original, and to improve upon everything that was right."
