Mass Effect 2 on first playthrough – Part 2
February 12, 2010
As I mentioned yesterday, I recently beat Mass Effect 2. Today I wanted to talk about a few things, what I liked/disliked, my end game team, guns, and lastly what the “bonus” was for beating Mass Effect Galaxy (the iPod Touch/iPhone game). Liked: The improved combat system The upgrade system — no more pausing mid-fight to adjust ammo types as necessary, or installing an upgrade for one weapon and moving your upgrade into another, etc, etc The planet scanning instead of taking the Mako down to run around the planet The heavy weapons Three different versions of Barrier: Fortification (for more Armor), Geth Shield (for more Shield), and Barrier (for more… biotic Barrier).

Beat Mass Effect 2 recently and managed to get all but 3 achievements: Insanity — Beat the game on Insanity difficulty; Overload Specialist — Use Overload to destroy a shield 25 times (only did this 22 times); Warp Specialist — Use Warp to destroy a Barrier 25 times (only did this a few times). I probably could have gotten Overload and Warp, but didn’t realize that you actually had to finish off the Shield/Barrier with Overload/Warp in order for it to count.
