BioWare boss Greg Zeschuk has likened Mass Effect 2 to Empire Strikes Back in terms of its place in the ME trilogy. Things are about to get nasty, yo.
“Yeah we have definitely designed it in that fashion,” he told IGN AU.
“If you recall, Empire Strikes Back was the darker chapter and that is how we designed the ME2 story and experience: to try and make the player reflect on the challenges of the character. If you put ME2 next to the original it is definitely a darker, harder game.”
