Mass Effect 2 has massive effect

 

BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts, announced today that Mass Effect 2 has sold over 2 million units worldwide in its first week of release. With an average rating of 96/100 from the world of game journalism, Mass Effect 2 has become a pop culture phenomenon.

The shooter gameplay of Mass Effect 2 has racked up plenty of adulation: 40 perfect scores, over 30 editor’s choice awards and donned the covers of 45 magazines worldwide. After all the hype, deserved review, worthy praise and phenomenal sales; Mass Effect 2 is the second highest rated game of all time on the Xbox 360.

Further, MSNBC claims, “Mass Effect will go down as one of the most influential videogame series of all-time.”

 

BioWare GM Dr. Ray Muzyka was not humble, nor should be: “Mass Effect 2 is poised to be one of the biggest games of 2010. We could not be more proud of the game’s universal acclaim and early commercial success.”

    After reading a couple of glowing reviews I preordered Mass Effect 2, but I don’t have a 360. Instead I got it for my brother since he said he wanted it but didn’t have the cash. Man I’m jealous. GOTY in January?
