Just finished up Mass Effect for the 1st time. I bought Mass Effect 2 for 9.99 on Black Friday and blazed through that and loved it. I figured I should get around to importing my Shepard from the 1st game and beat the 2nd over again in time for the 3rd.
After playing the 2nd game 1st and then playing Mass Effect after, the combat was so terrible. Good thing I loved the story and the decisions you get to make so it was still an 8/10 experience for me. I'll probably take my 2nd playthrough ME2 slowly now but It will be cool to see my decisions in action.
can't wait till ME3...gonna be soo epic....hopefully
The only things i hated about ME2 were that the Text was sometimes too hard to read, you couldn't toggle your helmet off and on at will, and your squad members didn't also have armored suits as well.
It just seemed silly to see what should be combat soldiers going into battle wearing casual clothes, while the squad leader (Shepard) is fully protected
Yeah I really hated that you couldn't toggle the helmet on and off. You should be able to wear it in battle but take it off when talking. I also think the animations and facial expressions could use some work. The graphics are astounding, but sometimes the mouth flaps are out of sync with the words and whenever Shepard smiles a puppy dies...especially after Garrus talks about his sparring match with another Turian.
And yeah that does seem weird that they don't have armor or protection but Shepard wears it. Guess that's why we carry so much medi-gel
Finished Crysis 2 about a month ago. Still playing it because im addicted to the multiplayer and I am also trying to beat the game on the highest difficulty; 2 missions to go
Still halfway in Mass Effect 1 and also a third of the way in Battlefield Bad Company 2. Still need to finish Lost Odyssey (I bought it when I just got the 360. Almost finished it but I accidentally erased my hardrive when I replaced my profile as an XBOX live account), Prototype, Bayonetta and Fable II
In the last month or so: Vanguard Bandits, Hitman: Contracts, Hitman: Blood Money, and am in the middle of Fallout: New Vegas now. I stopped playing that awhile back because of all the freezing, but they patched it finally recently so that it's actually playable.
