Galactic coup

tech reviews Updated: Mar 09, 2010 01:37 IST

Mass Effect franchise is one game that strikes the balance and is for gamers who love their Action-RPGs light on role-playing and high on action.

Twice as good
Mass Effect 2 on the one side comprises a dialogue-heavy storyline that could pass for a soap opera, and ample alien-on-alien action on the other. Everything in the sequel is twice as better.

The franchise’s biggest strength was its smooth pace intermittent with dialogue, interspecies interaction, space exploration and ample lore. Its open-ended mission structure allows you to pick any mission from its wide variety. Each of the galaxy’s species and sects have loads of reading material on them, breathing life into the game’s world by giving you enough backstory to understand how the galaxy functions.

Exciting mini-games
If you’re looking for a great RPG to draw you into a beautifully conjured world, Mass Effect 2 is right up your alley.

What we like

Great optimisation

Well-written script

Great mini-games (mining/hacking)

Well-tuned action

What we don’t

Underwhelming end

Predictable plot
