ME2 dissed by 2 different sites

fidgit.com dares to criticize ME2.

It's mostly a shooter

The core gameplay in Mass Effect 2 is a cover-based shooter, built around a narrow set of resistance/attack types. There are also exploding barrels. Oh, and ammo is called "thermal clips" for some reason. Bioware occasionally tries to vary the action by adding gimmicks, generally involving a timer bar or limitations on where you can stand. It's decent enough, I suppose. There's nothing inherently wrong with a cover-based shooter. But when you make the core gameplay so simple, it has a ripple effect through the rest of the game world. Everything in Mass Effect 2 has to be related to an anemic shooter.



And this french site scores it 7.0/10. It's all in french btw and I understood only half of it - here's an excerpt:

Son... I am disappoint.
Du côté des bonnes nouvelles, la disparition du système de surchauffe des armes et son remplacement par une gestion des munitions classique mais efficace fait plaisir... à condition d'aimer les armes automatiques. Si votre arme principale dans Mass Effect était le fusil à pompe ou le sniper, vous découvrirez par contre une capacité maximale de 10 à 15 balles ne permettant pas vraiment de combattre sur la durée sans tomber constamment en rade.



Uh huh.

So that's it with future review copies of BIO games for you, you fools.
