Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
The Mass Effect series is basically the "Star Wars" of video games, and Mass Effect 2 is its "The Empire Strikes Back". The games tone is much more dark than the first one. It's literally the middle ground between RPGs and Third-person Shooters. I praise Bioware for valuing dialogue in their games and not sacrificing its quality for gameplay. The Mass Effect universe is rich with lore and each character is unique and interesting. This game makes you care for your teammates(Garrus FTW). All together its a action paced space epic with a compelling story.
