    So now that ME2 is out and gets lots of reviews i've been tempted to buy it. I haven't played ME1 so I am wondering, should I buy that first and play it or should I just skip it and buy ME2?

    This is for xbox 360 as I haven't got a gaming PC together currently :o

    I gave the first an attempt just to get the choices I wanted for the second, got to being a Spectre and gave up, holy shit is that a step backwards, the second is so much more polished.

    Anyhow other than gay names you can download save games I think, by gay names I mean people named their character, just google it probably.

    You do lose out on a lot of back story but wiki that shit if it's there, it probably is.

    i don't think it can be too late. when you install, it just tells you what town hes in and you go pick him up

    I like the leveling up better on the first for some reason, there isn't that much you can increase in 2 IMO. It seems... limited. I played through as Sentinel, my try Vanguard or Adept on my second play through. Also, fuck the ammo bullshit. Only the heavy weapons should have ammo. Anyway, play the first one and import your character. Pretty sweet to continue your specific story line.

    you say the exact same thing in every single ME thread. are you really this desperate for people to know, or is this some sort of inside joke :ugh:

    i'd play ME1 first, that way if you ever do decide to play it, it won't feel like a step down. it really is a fantastic game on its own and i originally thought it was better than ME2. even though ME2 is less in-depth, its gameplay is vastly funner.

    I bought the Collectors Edition of Mass Effect 2 and I haven't touched it yet, I started Mass Effect 1(yes I know I waited too long to try this game and I regret it, it's fabulous) and that shit is owning me, so to hear you say that I can't wait to start the second.:wiggle:
