PostSubject: Mass Effect Stripped Down   Sun Aug 29, 2010 7:39 am

I've been playing my lovely new Mass Effect 2 but noticed that in so many aspects it's inferior to the first!
Why can't I explore the presidium like I could in the first?
Why is it that when I go through a door I'm given options of set locations to go as opposed to going to the next area?
Why is it instead of going into an elevator. I get loading screens? Seriously... I'm enjoying the game but how could they make these stupid changes?

The Citadel only plays a minor role in ME 2.

Yeah, the citadel is not a major part of the game. And the others are just minor changes. The one I was most dissapointed about was the weapon and armor from system from the first was gone.

Yeah but you have to understand that I hate most sci-fi stuff, and I hate rpgs if not fantasy-medieval. The only thing that made me like Mass Effect was the exploration and freedom. It's sad to see it turn into a more Dragon-Age style game. I'm really disappointed now. ME2 feels like, as the title implies, a stripped down version of the first. Better animation, better graphics and game mechanics but with so much missing. Sad

Damn I hate Bioware now. Maybe it was EA's fault >=

Maybe not a major part in terms of storyline but major to me! I spent hours and hours just running around the citadel, both the interiors and exteriors. I was hoping to do it again with better visuals and some other improvements but now it's just a downgrade. It sucks. Mass Effect > Mass Effect 2 so far.

Omega and Illium are the major places now. Change is good. Although some people were disappointed that the Citadel changed from the Presidium, markets and embassy's to a couple of wards.

I'm sure that by the end of the game you will think ME 2 > ME 1

Thats how I felt at first also, but its just the presidium. And plus you have a lot of new places in ME2. It gets better.

Not really...they're both good for their own reasons but I for one preferred Citadel, it's just so vast and awesome.

True. I remember on my first completion, I'd only just realised that you could change weapon near the end and I had hundreds of each weapon xD I converted them into omni gel.

Yeah, I agree.

I prefer RPGs so that's why I think ME1 is better.

I liked them both for certain things. But from an RPG perspective, ME1 is definetly better.

Yeah and ME2 cuts some of the crap. Instead of having to get from A to B, do an objective than make your way all the way back to A, in ME2 you just do the objective and have a cutscene which does the rest for you.

But unfortunately this also makes it feel more like a film than a game :/

ME1 had a better main plot and better RPG-like exploration and customization. ME2 had a stronger connection with side characters and was a better cinematic experience overall.

I like ME1 just a wee bit more but then again who doesn't like game originals? Just like how Halo 1, Gears 1, Resistance 1, etc are better than their respective sequels.

Yeah I agree. I'm getting more into ME2 now but I think ME1 will remain my favourite. Well who knows... my opinion could change Razz

I have to disagree with that. Gears Of War 1 story wasn't very good IMO.

I enjoyed Gears 2 story so much that I cried over one of the cutscenes in the game.
