Got Mass Effect 2 today and........Brits, you'll hate me for this, but it is single-handedly the most fun shooter I've ever played, a vast improvement over the original Mass Effect. The Story is engrossing, the combat moreso. Don't even get me started about the quotes ("Gravity? Phhff!" lol) and character depth. To all who read this and have a soul, buy this, you won't regret it.
Oh, one more thing: Questions Answered! (NO SPOILERS!)
1- it's a third person action adventure/ Combat game
2-The Nuke launcher = r0x0r5, the heavy weapons Kick royal levels of ass ("Say goodbye to yourself!")
3-The level of character development is astounding, and you'll meet all the good ol' gand from ME1, Ashleigh and Wrex and you'll evilgasm every moment of it.
4.Your choices DO matter, ALOT. Stressing the ALOT. Moreso than the original.
5.People have been bitching about how they added ammo in the form of "Thermal Clips" into the main weapons. Don't take it to hard, it makes it more tactical and you'll hardly notice anyway.
6.The weapons in the game, i an odd way, sound better and feel better when you shoot, not like the percussion drum- guns in the first one.
7. The voice acting and level design are without equal, Martin Sheen does a great job with the Illusive Man
8. In general, the game kicks ass.
So yeah, have fun on Mass Effect! (not mocking!)
