Can't wait to get home and keep playing. So far it has been pretty epic. Plan on taking some medicine, zone out and game all night. Sorry kallama.

I thought this came out in 3 days. Does everyone who have it stolen it, or does anyone have the boxed game?

I have a boxed copy of the first one if that counts.

And for everyone trying to import a character from the first game you have to import the saves in the external config utility then do it in game (why it doesn't look in the my documents folder where they were saved by default is beyond me).

Yeah, I have a boxed copy of the first one in a tin can box.

I think I'll probably buy a copy of the 2nd one when it's out.

IGN just posted their review not too long ago:
http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/106/1062898p1.html

"Games like Mass Effect 2 don't come around often enough. Look at any aspect and you can be sure it's great. It's incredibly personal while still retaining a sense of epic sweeping scale. The combat and mission design are outstanding. The visuals, voice acting, soundtrack, and direction are miles ahead of the competition. Perhaps most impressively, Mass Effect 2 manages to fulfill its incredible ambition while only suffering from very few technical hiccups. The only real caveat I should mention is that some of the revelations and plot twists won't be quite as powerful if you haven't played Mass Effect 1, but that isn't any reason to skip this fantastic videogame."

This is the first game that I've actually requested three days off of work so that I can play it, and it looks like I won't regret that decision at all.

The IGN review is really vague and not particularly informative. It could have easily been written without having actually played the game.

I'm about 3 or 4 hours in, really loving it so far.

I pirated it, but I still have my pre-order copy set to be delivered in a few days.

I started doing that, then booted up Mass Effect 2 just to check it out and decided I won't be finishing the first one again(lost my save game). This one just plays a LOT better imo.

I agree, it does play better but there are things that bother me a lot so far. I hate how run, cover and use are all the spacebar. Running out of ammo really pisses me off at times.

I think it's pretty stupid that EA is going to charge people that buy the game used $15 to join the Cerberus Network. They already made their money when someone purchased the retail game, they shouldn't be after used game sales.

This is me

To be fair, the computer I was running it on at the time could not handle the Citadel city place at all. I should give it another go if I can find the time.

Is it "stealing" if someone pre-ordered it yet still torrents it to play earlier?

From what I recall, owning roms isn't illegal if you already own the game, right?

It's more moral, but it's still illegal.

There's no winning side to this issue. On one side there's EA, and I sure as **** don't support them being able to throw around big additional charges for doing essentially nothing. And it's another step towards the "everything as subscription" model (pretty soon you'll have to license your toothbrush monthly from Braun). On the other side there's Gamestop, which has pushed the used game racket so aggressively it seems almost deliberately malicious towards publishers/developers.

So I can understand and almost support it as an attempt to fight back against Gamestop, but ultimately... **** all of them, before they **** us.

i will pirate this game and i dont plan on buying it. hows that make some of you feel in here.

seriously get the **** off the high horse and get over it.... people will always steal games because in the past so many games have STOLE our money with ****astic games.

i gave ME1 a solid go at it and never finished the game. i lost interest. Ill give 2 a go and maybe even 1 again if i get bored enough but i have no plans on buying this game from anywhere but the "store"
