Oooh... Interesting. Mass Effect one was a good game; I hope they improve upon it.

If they keep the same formula as the last but with longer story and better side quests I'll be very happy. :P

Yeah I was kind of dissapointed with the side quests, or lack of to be honest. So more of those would be nice, especially if they do something sensible like make those side quests really worthwhile by encouraging players to take the time to do them... by providing the incentive with good unique equipment rewards.

Was surprised Bioware didnt really do that with the first Mass Effect...

But the simplistic career path structures, and the combat system from the first one are great.

Looking forward to seeing the second one.

Wow... just... wow.

BRILLIANT!

[spoiler]Never considered this before, but by introducing a new PC, they open the possibility for all sorts of options we wish we could have had in the first game. Having Sheppard KIA also lets us join up with the previous team, which is a brilliant move.

/here's hoping new PC gets to hit on Tali ;D

EDIT: Nevermind, something's amis. Didn't Bioware state that Sheppard would be the protagonist through all three games?[/spoiler]

It wasn't so much the rewards, but how generic they were. I did several of them and over half were simply to go to some deserted planet, enter some base (which pretty much always looked the same), and talk to/kill/disable/deactive/blah blah blah.

To be honest, they felt like MMO quests. In an MMO it's understandable if every mission doesn't have a unique tileset, but in this game it felt very akward that so many of the side quests were so similar. The bases looked copied and pasted onto the planet rather than being an actual part of it. The differences between main storyline and side quests, both in both aesthetics and script, just felt far too stark, as if the side quest were an afterthought.





But aside from that the game was total killer. :P

I'm not surprised that Shepard is out of the picture. I remember Bioware warning players to not delete their Mass Effect saves, but their explanation for it seemed far more humble than 'omg your going to be Shepard again.' I think that, more likely, the choices you make in the game, particularly at the game's climax, and the relationships Shepard formed, will be what we see echoed in ME2.
