The lights are on
Casy Hudson the ME prodycer said you dont need to have played the first to jump into the second, but i'd recomend you buy the first and playthrough you get the full story and several easter eggs that would not be there otherwise and you can grow relationships with the charcters from the first game that you not get if yoiu have not played the first Garrus is prime example of that. playing both just adds more emotion to the exprerence.
It has great replay value but i would suggest playing the first one before playing the second. Allot of the choices transfer over between the games and it's easier to understand what's going on.
Wow. This topic is now over a year old, but still has people commenting on it.
If this person hasn't bought Mass Effect 1 yet, I don't think they are going to be convinced.
well to be honest i only posted a comment here to get forum points
