It's not an issue! I liked the improvements to the combat in ME2 it did make it quite fast paced. I remember the shields in number one taking forever to recharge. I think the leveling in number 2 was simplified for the worse though.

I never played the first ME, but I played the ME 2 demo.  I thought it was annoying switching back and forth between incendiary and regular rounds when I saw shielded and unshielded opponents.

Just leave the incendiary rounds on.

You know, you could just take a class that only has one option

Though I loved beeing Soldier and using sniper rifles since the Focus ability made headshots a walk in the park... I believe Armor Piercing ammo is the best all-rounder (I think it's the one you unlock via thane)...

It was too annoying in the begining when your guns sucked and too easy at the end when they pwnd.

ME2 had a fairly steady difficulty curve.

Did I mention that I can't fucking wait for this? K

PS, very little doubt it's delayed to Q1/Q2 2012.

true, however I didn't really like that they moved from passive cooling to thermal clips

Thermal clips was the biggest improvement.

Passive cooling was annoying, you had to stand around and wait for your gun to cool.

The constant shortage was annoying though, forcing you to change weapons often.

That was annoying. You could carry a max of 14 sniper rifle bullets or something. Preeeeeetty stupid. It didn't bother me that much. I pretty much always had shotgun ammo as a Vanguard because I was always in their face when i killed them.

I wish they had a combination of the two, sinply for the sake of the fiction. The clips were there to eliminate the long cooling times. That much makes sense. What doesn't make sense is that you couldn't just leave the last clip in and let it slowly cool down if you had run out.

Or even better just carry 3 clips total and while using one the others are cooling ?

Cool down in ME1 was only bad for a few hours or so, not hard to get better weapons/mods.  By the time your nearing the end of the game you virtually have infinite ammo

Yeah by the end of ME1 I could fire the assault rifle infinitely at full accuracy without it ever overheating.

Just make the "Universal" clips universal. You always carried enough ammo, but it was incompatible from one weapon type to another. Stupid system.

Yeh hopefully this game is a hybrid of the first and second.

The whole ammo thing should just be a mix - you can fire slowly and never run out or fire quickly and burn out your gun and need to use another clip. The sniper thing was stupid, you play an infiltrator and get 14 shots before you have to go scrounging for ammo and/or use your alternative shitty SMG.

Most importantly, from memory ammo/damage didnt change that much over the course of the game. Obviously ME1 was broken in that regard but at least there was progression there - from overheating and being inaccurate to never overheating and shooting pistols as fast as assault rifles.

Also, obligatory actually have an inventory/loot, etc.

I'll never forget Mass Effect... at first I hated it with a passion, then learned to love it, now I'm totally obsessed.  By far the best single player experience money can buy

CANT WAIT FOR NUMBER 3!  Just have to get a new Xbox by then.... gotta have those save file transfers and shit
