Because really, the world needs more references to Breakin' 2.

So, I finished the game last night. Overall, I liked the it, though I didn't have that overwhelming sensawunda that I got from the first game. The plot felt a bit more obtrusive, especially as [livejournal.com profile] publius1 noted you could tell as soon as you saw a lot of cover objects that there was going to be a fight coming. A lot of the mechanics were a lot better from the previous game -- there were fewer categories to spend upgrade points in, and the powers were actually relatively useful and relevant (AI Hacking and Burninating in particular). I loved the fact that I no longer had to manage my inventory (just keep track of upgrades) or keep track of omni-gel levels, and while I won't say that I loved the hacking minigames, they certainly beat playing "Simon Says".

Plot-related items behind the cut to avoid any additional chicken cacciatore incidents. )

All things considered I did like the game -- now I need to go back and finish my second playing of my "keeper" character from ME1, and then import that into ME2 and do a couple of playthroughs there, though I'm betting that I've got at least a good year to year and a half for that.

Though Civ V is coming out in the fall, supposedly (damn you, [livejournal.com profile] rysmiel for posting that link.....).
