When we played it, we enjoyed seeing our blood-soaked characters talk to folk like nothing’s wrong in cutscenes; something that has also continued from the original.

Mass Effect 2 has landed on the European PlayStation Store for an insane £48.

Those cheeky chaps over at BioWare have announced that the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 will be using the Mass Effect 3 engine. Coupled with all the patches and DLC packs included in the package, the PS3 version sounds like it’s going to be pretty swish. It’s a bit surprising for a PS3 version of a multi-platform game to actually perform up to par but this might just do   Read More ...
