It's not "just a game", it's a game that has completely broadened the horizons for "games" to come. I mean, it's just that good.
I haven't seen a good movie in years (let alone a space opera..), that ever captured me as much as this game and it's predecessor does. Both games
are intertwined and this one follows your decisions from the first. Who lives, who dies, what you did, it all carries over with your save files.
That's over 70 hours of peerless interactive storytelling. You don't just watch cutscenes for 30 hours, you are the cutscenes, because every
dialogue is one that you interact with.
I've been playing games for 20 years, and this right here is probably the best I've ever played in terms of an engaging plot and characters.
No movie has ever wrapped me up like this, and I would have to go back decades into classic film to compare and fill that gap. It's a touch of Blade
Runner, a bit of Star Wars, a hint of Star Trek, etc.. maybe a little "too much" of everything, but it carves it's own identity and you are never
left questioning it's originality.
The worst thing about this game is that it ends.. but it's still a trilogy, so I've got that to look forward to.
