The other night, I had to defend Mass Effect from a hater-fest that only “Someone” can give. I’m sorry, but Mass Effect 2 looks fantastic, and will be exactly what a sequel should be: a game that improves on the original without losing the original’s power. What I’m mostly concerned about is whether or not Mass Effect 2 will sacrifice the power and passion of the first story in order to lure gamers in with this shooter-action. I don’t mind the shooting of Mass Effect becoming evolved and improved, as long as I can play the game until five in the morning because of an entangled storyline and wonderful, wonderful character development. Nate has a good write up too, so check it out and enjoy the trailer.
