Cheats and Walkthroughs
BioWare has made a special interactive backstory comic for the PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2. ME2 is the second game in the trilogy but unlike many games your choices actually do matter. Xbox 360 and PC gamers could transfer their saved files from Mass Effect 1 sending over their character's likeness and choices. These choices shape the events of Mass Effect 2.
Gamers who are playing ME2 for the first time on the PS3 won't have the option to play ME1 where these key choices take place. To make sure PS3 players don't miss out on any of the story BioWare made an interactive comic to help gamers catch up on the events of the Mass Effect universe while quickly making the choices that defined the game. The 15 minute comic covers all the major events of Mass Effect 1, prompting you to make choices sequentially as you follow along. To find out what we think of the comic and if it does its job familiarizing players with the Mass Effect universe check out our review for Mass Effect 2 on the PS3 next week.
Update: I'm the one playing during the comic. Every choice I made was the opposite of what I chose in my Mass Effect 2 save file at home. I wanted to experience everything ME2 had to offer, even the bad choices.
