Continuing the countdown of our top five favourite games on Xbox 360 over the last five years, we arrive at number two. Having already revealed The Orange Box at number five, Grand Theft Auto IV at number four and Halo Reach at number three, there's plenty of speculation over what our top two titles will be, but you may be surprised with our choices as you won't find a Call Of Duty, Gears of War, Fallout or Bioshock game in sight!

Without further ado...

Number 2 – Mass Effect 2
Mass Effect is more than just a videogame. It’s a sci-fi entertainment experience, a cinematic showcase and an epic novel rolled into one. The original game was magnificent enough, but the second game in the series improved in a number of areas, with the micro-management aspect of the first game and the RPG-style combat system stripped down to give the game more of a focus on action. Mining for probes is probably one of the most boring things that we've ever done in a video game, but Mass Effect 2 makes up for its few inconsistencies in so many other areas, providing an immersive game world filled with mysterious uncharted planets and alien life forms.

Mass Effect 2 incorporates an innovative dialogue system where your choices affect the outcome of each situation, meaning that the storyline can often branch off in a way that you weren't expecting. As a result, Mass Effect 2 is a deep and involving experience that will suck away at your time and keep you totally immersed. There aren't many games that can grasp your attention from the out-set and manage to keep you totally wrapped up in its gameplay from beginning to end, but Mass Effect 2 does that magnificently



Stay tuned for our top pick.
