First, combat is largely improved. The controls got shimmied around, to a much more comfortable configuration, in my opionion. Q and E allowed to you select positions for your companions to take, R got changed to reload, grenade was removed, and shift got switched to menu, with space as sprint. Good stuff. The sprint is somewhat slower and longer, which can be super convenient. Weapons have shared ammo pickups, but each has unique ammo, no overheat system. It's much better.
|Only romance option for me. Miranda is obnoxious, Jack is out of her mind, and Morinth... just no.|
Overall, I think it improved on ME1 very well. All areas felt a little improved. 9.75/10.
