I haven't been this impressed with a game since Half Life 1... This is like 100x better than ME1, it is better in every single conceivable way. I like the characters better, I like the story better (I continued from an ME1 completed save game), I like the environments better, I like the combat better, I like the upgrade system better, the graphics are much better... Yeah, it's just awesome, I couldn't pull myself away from it all night, I kept saying just one more mission, or "I'm just gonna recruit one more crew member" and before I knew it the sun was coming and up... AND THEN I said fuck it and played for another 4 hours. When I walked into Afterlife I was FLOORED, I can't believe they went from choras den/flux to THAT! That whole station was so refreshing after drudging through the identical cloned environments of ME1, and then I did the new citadel and the prison ship, jesus christ, it just kept getting better. I won't say anymore I didn't want this to be a spoiler post... So anyway, there is my endorsement, buy this game, I'm fucking tired.
