I'd seen those before on the site.

It'd be cool if they added levels within cities and whatnot. The Citadel was cool, but it was a bit too... simple for my taste.
Imagine a really crowded plaza or something. That'd be cool.

All in all, Mass Effect was a BEAUTIFUL game. I have nothing but high expectations for the second one. Too bad it's going to be a year's wait before we get to see it

I agree about the Citadel... my one main complaint with Mass Effect as a whole was the lack of any really cool towns/cities/shops... there was hints of that kind of thing in the Citadel, but not nearly enough, and practically nothing on the planets.

Yeah, we need more towns and less uncharted planets. Infact in ME2 there should be no uncharted planets because I visited every god damn last planet in the first game.

It all depends on your alignment. Either Paragon or Renegade. It's not a HUGE difference, but I wasn't expecting it.

I agree.

I just hope the story and game world are as interesting as the first game. That's what made it so good.

The combat (specifically the AI) and the stat progression were pretty average and had some flaws. If they fix those up, add more info to the Codex (I loved that part), write a great story and great dialog and gave the player more to do in space, this could be an amazing game.

It also be nice if they didn't screw with the mako controls. So many people complained that they'll probably neuter the controls somehow, but I found them very responsive and easy to use on PC.

I'd like to see less "cookie cutter" type places. Once you explored one planet base or one space station you knew where to go and what to look for.

Give me less planets and more detail and areas on the planets they provide and I would be set. I liked the combat and leveling system, only thing that screwed it was the amount of useless **** you got and the stupid AI.

I call BS!! No way Shepard was taken out by some ***** ass Geth trooper.

And I agree, more unique areas combined with all the great elements of the first game may make it one of the best games Bioware has released to date.

Your guess is as good as mine, but I seriously hope we retain more from our saved games other than how our character looks.
