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.

Trivia

When checking in at the Citadel for the first time, Captain Bailey mentions that "spending a year dead" is a common tax dodge. This is a reference to the book "The Restaurant At The End of the Universe" by Douglas Adams, where a famous band manager is spending a year dead for tax purposes. See more »

There're a lot to do in this game. Fighting bad guys, forming team, collecting resources, making tough choices, choosing sides, and of course saving the galaxy.

You start the game few months after the ending of the first game. Humanity's place in the galaxy has never been stronger before. As commander Sheppard you can start the same game you left in Mass Effect 1. The graphic details are improved, specially the character designs. You can travel to the furthest system in the Milkyway with your new and improved Normandy. You can romance few of your crews. You meet most some new characters.

The combats system is linear and not much exciting, easier than the previous game. Level designs are silly. But the all the battles are super bad-ass.
