This critically-acclaimed BioWare title is available free for a limited time on Origin!
Man, have we been spoiled these last few months. Between all the Uplay 30th anniversary freebies, Origin's offerings and some of the goodies available via Steam, about half the titles of this series (based on free games) have been blockbusters. This week is no exception, as Origin brings us Mass Effect 2 free for a limited time.
I'm a bit pressed for time and more than enough has already been written about this game, so I'll keep it brief. If you like BioWare titles (Jade Empire, Knights of the Old Republic, Dragon Age) this is perhaps one of the most polished of the bunch. It blends third-person action/shooting with RPG elements and gives you the ability to use cover and direct your squad members. As someone who was actually somewhat disappointed with KOTOR, I find this title a huge improvement both in pacing and playability. There's less character options than in KOTOR, but Mass Effect 2 feels more streamlined (and a lot less clunky) as a result.
