Mass Effect 2

What is Mass Effect 2?

Mass Effect 2 is an action role-playing video game developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts. Mass Effect 2 is a sequel to the original Mass Effect and the second main game in the Mass Effect series. Set within the Milky Way galaxy during the 22nd century, the game follows Commander Shepard, an elite human soldier who must recruit and gain the loyalty of a diverse team in order to defeat an insect-like species called the Collectors in a suicide mission. Mass Effect 2 is a single-player action role-playing game where the player takes the role of Commander Shepard through a third-person perspective. Character development is a primary element of the game; when starting a new game, the player has to give Shepard a back story. The player can either choose to import a completed save file from the end of the original Mass Effect or start a new character.
