%3Ca%20href="%3Ca%20href="http://www.ea.com/games/mass-effect-2">">EA have come with another banger for your pleasure. It was one of our "%3Ca%20href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/rampage/2010/01/what_games_are_you_looking_for.html">Big for 2010" game predictions and I happy to report it gets an official release WOOP WOOP!

Made by the same guys that produced %3Ca%20href="http://www.lucasarts.com/games/platform.html">'Star Wars, "Knights of the Old Republic" A llot of you guys and gals expect great things especially after the first (for me) wasn't brilliant.
I have one message for you all....BUY IT! Mass Effect is HEAVY like lead. The great thing is its only part 2 of a trilogy that should be a Peter Jackson movie.

I love the characters and with their special effects, they make the game play fun and challenging. You can learn up to 19 different weapons and how best to use them to save mankind. (As usual!).

One fo the great things about it is If you've got the first game you can import saved games on to part 2 which personalises Commander Shephards own journey. If you're new to Mass Effect don't worry, just pick it up and bubble. The graphics and gameplay are tight.

It plays ten times better than the first one and I do prefer third person shooters to first person, so in a word "I'm In". Two discs and an entire galaxy to explore means this won't be over in a quick minute. Customise your character to look just like you and enjoy.
Oh yes......I nearly forgot. If you think the Reapers gave you problems you've got a bigger problem on the horizon, trust me!
