Mass Effect 2 Reviewed, Receives Editor's Choice AwardAn early, and extremely worthy, contender for RPG of 2010.01.31.10 - 9:48 PM
Today's review of Mass Effect 2
(Xbox 360 version) comes from Ashton Liu. This is the same guy who's not afraid to cut the big guys down to size, and whose favorite JRPGs include the somewhat obscure Dept. Heaven series from Sting (Yggdra Union
, et al).
In other words, he's not the kind of guy to praise a game due to its popularity. This game could've sold terribly, and Mr. Liu would still hold firm to his opinion.
And what is his opinion? Well, for that, you'll want to read the review. But I'll give you a hint: he gave the game a 98%. In our neck of the woods, such a high score is generally unheard of. We reserve that for games that give us happy (arousing?) dreams for months, even years, to come.
I have nothing more to say. The rest I'll leave to Ashton. Expect even more Mass Effect 2 coverage in the coming days and weeks.
