OXM’s published the first Mass Effect 2 review, giving the BioWare RPG a not unexpected super-score.

AllGamesBeta’s got some shitty scans of the piece, but you can see the verdict – 9.5/10.

The US mag praised the hugely anticipated sequel for an “enveloping universe filled with interesting characters and revealing side stories,” and its “outstanding, flexible combat in gorgeous environments.”

Unfortunately, though, the bit most of the IPs fans care about – the story was a “bit disappointing”. Whoops.

Still, you can’t argue with numbers. And that’s a big one.

The game’s out on January 29 for PC and 360.
