I dont know how it works completely, but from what ive read on the net on preview sites etc, the story starts off normally as you saved the citadel but let the council die and Aiden was the one left behind in the nuclear explosion.

But if you use a saved profile from ME1, where you let the council live, and Wrex lives and you sent Ash to her death. Then the start changes accordingly.

Interesting, apparently the metals you collected etc come into play also in ME2, as does medals and so forth.

Hmm good thing I did all the possible side quests. They were dreadfully boring, but still I guess they'll pay off. What I don't understand is this Continue from save mode. I have played on my character twice and completed the story twice without any significant differences other than switching Kaidan and Ashley in the situation. The first time I chose Alenko and left Ashley, second time around I did all of the side quests, though I decided to leave Alenko and help Ashley. Now I'm confused about my situation. Will my save be valid with Alenko or with Ashley?

I guess I'll have to wait and see...
Personally I didn't like that situation.

There are other many decisions that you have to make other than save either Ashley or Kaiden even you just did the story line quests. Spoiler:

Such as save council or let it be destroyed, who did you choose to be a council member, give Geth data node to Tali or not to, kill or free Racchi Queen, convince Wrex or just kill him, sell datas of Cerebus secret research to black market or not, agree to interview with reporter or just blast it etc...

Small and major decisions that you've made in ME1 will influence on ME2 as you know.

Last few days I've been replaying first Mass Effect for savegame. Completed everything but the collection mission(ore, league of one, etc).

Does completing those have any impact?

Yup, Alot of the quests go into the next savegame, the ore gets translated into the new upgrade system type cash - it's not credits, Just different ore .

It seems so. At least the ore part does.

That cunning Bioware, has only enabled one storyline from the start of ME2.

BUT....

If you have ME1 and a saved character it will load it and carry on the story as you left it.


Sounds like a ploy to make people buy ME1 also :P

I'd assume most people HAVE played ME1 before playing 2. Or else it's a complete waste, you lose out on soooo much of the backstory without playing it first.

Sadly, it's been awhile since i've beat the first one on the PC. So I was forced into choosing the questions at the beginning. Couldn't find my old save anywhere u_u
