Storyline

Following the conclusion of the first Mass Effect, Shepard and his ship, the Normandy, are dispatched to wipe out any further geth resistance. During the patrol in space, the Normandy is attacked by an unknown ship. Most of the crew escapes the Normandy, but Shepard is killed. Fortunately, Shepard's body is retrieved and is revived by Cerberus, a pro-human organization that is at odds with the Alliance, whom Shepard was a part of. Two years later, Shepard learns from the Illusive Man, the leader of Cerberus, that numerous human colonies are vanishing, but the latter does not know why. After Shepard visits a colony that was recently attacked by these unknown belligerents, he learns that the belligerents are in fact Collectors, the same species that was behind the downing of the Normandy. Attacking the Collectors home world would be suicide.

Trivia

It is the first video game in history where you can import the save game from the previous game therefore the decisions you made in the first game actually have some bearing in the second game (example if a character dies in the first game, he/she will not appear in the second). See more »

Goofs

In Local Cluster, the planets are all seen with retrograde rotation (clockwise as viewed from the north pole). Only Venus should have a retrograde rotation. See more »

Quotes

[about the Citadel]
Legion: This is not unlike our stations. Far more inefficient. Your organic shells require more space. Information propagation is slow. Many voices speak at once. We do not understand how it functions without consensus. Perhaps study of other hive species will illuminate. Beginning extranet search protocols.

They improved the gameplay,the story is well... a different story
3 February 2013 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

The second entry in the "Mass Effect" franchise,one of my favorite gaming franchises of all time, is also,in my opinion,the weakest one.That isn't to say it's a bad game.It's good,damn good,but it falls a little short exactly where it shouldn't-the story line.

I would like to point out,that Bioware really put a lot of effort in improving the gameplay.It's a lot more fluent and closer to a third person shooter.They also give you a little more freedom to explore,which is nice.

Now,about the story.It's not bad,but it just feels a little stagnant.In the first game you could feel the threat of an imminent reaper invasion,hear it's more like a quiet threat.Secondly,the perfect balance between humor and drama we had in the first game is broken.There are a lot of moments that can only be described as being silly,over-the-top and cheesy as hell,like Sheppard dancing.That's not to say these moments aren't enjoyable,it's just that I find it hard to take the whole story serious.In terms of characters they went with quantity over quality.You have 12 teammates(DLCs included),in the first game you had only 6.Naturally this leads to a lack of development.The characters are more straight forward-Grint is a typical warrior who seeks honor,Zaeed is a typical war veteran.There are exceptions-like Miranda or Mordin.

Overall,"Mass Effect 2" just isn't as good as the first or the third.
