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.

Goofs

On various locations, various characters met in Mass Effect 1 state that they've been doing lots of things in the past few years (most notably Liara built up her empire in that time). Since there are only 2 years apart events of ME1 and ME2, those statements ofter are quite out of place. See more »

Best Video Game Ever
14 December 2015 | by stearny1210See all my reviews

When I first played this game, I had never heard of the Mass Effect series, I wasn't expecting much. How wrong I was. Within about an hour, I couldn't believe how good this game was. The story, the game-play, the graphics, the voice cast, character development, it has it all. When I wasn't playing the game, I was imagining playing the game. One of the few games these days that I was able to go back to and complete multiple times. I retrospectively bought the first Mass Effect, which is more of a standard RPG, still great but just not quite as perfect as this game. Mass Effect 3 was immense as well, but I still feel this one was the pinnacle. The only downside is that since I played this game, all other games seem inferior, some come close (Dragon Age, Skyrim), but nothing has gripped me as much as this one. I'm expecting big things from the next installment for the next generation of consoles, hopefully, I will have a new favorite game in ME4.
