Mass Effect 2 is an action RPG that carries a rating of MA 15+ from the Australian Classification Board. This Sony PlayStation 3 video game is a single-player game with the object of using a third-person perspective to develop a strong character throughout the game. Commander Shepard is the main character, and the player's job is to provide Commander Shepard with a back story. Players can import a character profile from a previous instalment of Mass Effect or start fresh. Furthermore, Mass Effect 2 allows players to completely customise Commander Shepard. The game also offers six character classes, and each one includes separate strengths and weaknesses. In this Sony PlayStation 3 video game, two AI characters accompany the Commander, and these characters are indirectly managed by the player. In this action RPG, combat takes place in real time. As each combat situation ends and the Commander prevails, progress is shown. Players can level up in specific points in the game as well. Although Mass Effect 2 happens in real time, the game can be paused to seek out targets and enemies for tactical strategy.
