I picked it up on Steam because it was on sale, and I played for maybe an hour or two. I can't figure out how people love this game so much.

Does it turn out to be anything more than a conversation simulator? I want to run around and do stuff, not sit in an air plane and talk to people. I can do that IRL.

Is this game worth reinstalling? Does it get to a point at which you can actually play? I got to a part where you rescue an alien guy, and then it put me on a plane and I uninstalled the game for being so gay.

eh.. high quality game. not all games are built for everyone. ME series is story-driven. The gameplay is good when you get down to it.. FPS RPG. I dont understand the point of making a whole thread just because you dont like a game, though. Only trolls do that.

i wanted to know if the game changed at all from what i have so far experienced, to know whether it's worth re-downloading, and i needed to describe the parts i don't like so people know what exactly it is that i am looking for.

without this information, an answer to my Q wouldn't be possible.

so, the gameplay is good when you get down to it - does more gameplay come in, or is a lot of the game spent talking to NPCs in a plane?

i would say 10% of gameplay involves you talking to one person or another

So it's a lot heavier on the conversation in the beginning of the game? I was stuck talking to the leader guy of the faction you're working with.

i would say more than that.
still, not too much. there is definitely a lot of gamelplay.

@OP - it's a bioware RPG - do you know of any?
Dragon Age? KotOR? what about baldurs gate and icewind dale?

point is, it is a specific type of game, that has a lot of talking. if you didn't want that, you should have found out what it was before buying it!

the point of that stuff is so that you can say what you did in the first game, since you obviously didnt have a save game to import.


its so story driven it has to repeat what happened/let you say what happened (with no save game) otherwise it would make no sense at all.

There is a lot of talking, a lot more than 10%. I actually liked the conversation though, I don't think you could say a lot of the things you do in the game in life- at least not without getting hit/slapped :laugh:

I was quite dissapointed by mass effect 2 at the start and just like you I found it quite boring. Then I got about half way through and it just blew me away the pace really picked up and the story just got so engrossing it really does deserve the game of the year award.

You have too play the first one if you want to even understand the storyline of the second game.
So it is not surprising that you didn't like it, Mass effect 2 gameplay is actually pretty boring and only worth it because of the story.

on my first playthrough, i was on citadel station (and the stuff leading to it) for the first 3 hours of the game.


On my most recent one (third) it took me less than 30 minutes to get everything done and be outta there, actually playing the game.


I think the game design expected us to get it done quicker than some of us actually did, the first time around so it gets boring fleshing out the story.

Definitely the conversation is part of it.
What catches me about Mass Effect 2 is the biotics in combat.

:rolleyes: because not everyone knows stuff about video games. i asked a question about a game, not a question about the process of deciding what game to buy. :)


thanks for the info, guys! :D

As has been mentioned by other posters, Mass Effect is a Bioware RPG.

This means a lot of things to many people but to me, Bioware RPG is synonymous with lame arsed faggy endless conversation and watery turn based (or not) combat action with a very limited opportunity for immersive world exploration.

I really cannot fathom why Mass Effect and its equally faggy siblings (dragon age, KOTR etc) are considered such fantastic games. To my tastes, they are just pure and utter shite! Ever since having played Gothic 1 + 2, I have been convinced that I am an RPG fan, so I have spent hours of my spare time sitting down and playing all the non-Pirhana Bytes RPG's and found them all (The Witcher excepted) to be massive über-bore dissapointments. Mass Effect (2) is no exception to that rule.

I have played about 25 hours into the game and the pace of the game remains constant. Loads of conversation amongst faggy characters, crappy immature brain-dead storyline, and then some gameplay missions, all of which are lumbered by same repetative and crappy gameplay mechanics (never changes), and then with a pile of boring chores to complete in between all that. So to answer your question, stop hitting your head against a brick wall. I know you have spent money on the game and the whole world is telling you that the game is amazing.......but if you are struggling to get entertainment value from it and find it a real chore to play....then best leave it out.

Of all the RPG's out there (and I have tried a lot), the only ones I can wholeheartedly recommend are:

Gothic 1 + 2 (both very old by now)
Risen

These games combine arcade and RPG elements in vast totally free roaming world's packed with beasts, hidden secrets, and a great deal of artistic beauty. There is also lot's of convo but unlike with the lame Bioware brigade, none of it makes you want to puke your guts up and/or puts you into a near comatose state.

To the OP your not alone...

I was desperately looking for a good RPG, so I got Mass Effect 1 and couldn't finish it.

Then I got Mass Effect 2 cause people said good things about it and couldn't finish it either (although was more entertained with 2 than 1)

In the end Bioware RPGs just aren't for me as I take it they aren't for you. I couldn't even get into Dragon Age.

Now I don't mean to imply ME 1, 2 and DA aren't good games, only that even the best of games fail to appeal to 100% of its Audience (RPG Players).

I don't thinks its safe for anyone to declare one RPG better than another but everyone is entitled to their own opinion and for that the OP shouldn't be called a troll. He is just merely stating his opinion and no one should feel offended by it.
