Why did I write all of this? I dunno. Sorry guys lol.
Best game ever idk, but most certainly a strong candidate for rpg of the year.
But one could say this was to be expected, given the fact Bioware's probably one of the best (if not the best) rpg development studio out there.

Thats just it though, the game is less of an rpg then the first one was. However that has not lowered my enjoyment at all. In fact it's made me focus more on the really strong points of the game.

To each their own. To me it's very easily in the top 5 games of all time. Possibly even the best, but as you said that's hard to say for sure.

It's a hover tank.

After 6 hours I've started to get over the lack of RPG aspects, in the end the combat really isn't all that different from the first game. What still bugs me is the weapon selection. Possibly the worst call BioWare ever made about the game. Not sure why they were compelled to remove the excellent weapon system in ME.

I'd be happy if I stumbled across an SMG so I could drop this silly machine pistol.

Do I have all the ship upgrades? I have the Shields, The Cannons and the Armor (don't even remember buying that). I have asked everyone on my crew (save Legion, Not that far yet) and they say I have everything.

Also is it important to save element zero or can you spend it?

Yeh, thats not realistic technically considering there is no force is space to slow you down, so once you get going, you keep going.

Anyway it is annoying considering so far there are only two systems with fuel ships. I went to the local cluster, ran out of probes, so I had to go all the way back to the omega cluster, buy more probes, get gas, then head all the way back to the local cluster, all while going through load times.

For a funny moment, go to the local cluster and do some mining on Uranus and send out at least two probes and listen to what Miranda says.


One disappointment is that exploring is ruined, instead of going to a planet, you can only either mine, or you can land but only go to one location. Considering that a lot of people considering the ability to explore a major part of an RPG, I just can't classify this game as an RPG. It is 99.9% FPS. If anything it is an FPS+RPG hybrid, much like Fallout 3, but with much less RPG-ish characteristics.

dunno about you guys but after 14 hours of play time, the combat scene is getting repetitive FAST. ME1 kept me interested long enough for me to skip sleep for couple days. and the looting for weapon upgrades is just a really really bad call. being an adept for my first time around, it was rather a pain in the ass using a pistol through out the campaign since biotic can only do so much against shields and barriers, oh and not to mention this crap ALL FOR ONE cooldown time, this is Achilles's heel for adept consider adept has nothing going for them EXCEPT biotic powers, and now there is a cooldown time everytime for all of them when you only used one?

to make the matter worse, the whole story consist of you getting revived, start hunting for teammates, and before you know it, final mission, wham bam thank you ma'am. i don't know if my expectation were too high or the devs was too creative in the wrong way, but i'm quite disappointed and glad i only brought the regular edition and not spending 10 or 20 bucks more on the collectors version, i'm not a harsh judge but this game is getting an 8/10 from me.
