The game of the moment has to be Mass Effect 2 and Argos has an interesting deal that should grab all Xbox 360 owner’s attention. When you order Mass Effect 2 for £39.99 from Argos you can get a free dual charger station with 2 battery packs worth £19.99 absolutely free. While on the Mass Effect 2 page, click the Special Offers tab and tick the charger station offer!
If you don’t already own a charge station then this is a great way of picking one up at a bargain price. Currently HMV will sell you Mass Effect 2 for £34.99 so even considering the higher price, this is technically £14.99 cheaper, as the charge base retails for £19.99!
As for the game itself it’s superb, if you were wise enough to play through the original game then you already know the epic level of story telling that you’re in store for. This sequel simply expands on this and brings film-style storytelling to your console. The fact that Bioware has managed to wrap such a complex storytelling vehicle inside an RPG that’s so effortless to play is a huge achievement and a testament to its genius.
For us there are minor flaws, the resource mining is a dull chore and the combat can become somewhat tiresome with its dumbed-down console controls and sometimes annoying cover system. But the sheer level of immersion you get inside the Mass Effect universe keeps you coming back to the varied missions and beautiful locations.
