See the (amazing) Mass Effect 2 gameplay we saw at E3

More than a month after we got our hands on the E3 2009 build of Mass Effect 2, BioWare has finally released footage to back up what we saw and played. It's a sort of "developer's cut:" The video features good looks at character interaction, combat and exploration -- all in-game -- along with commentary on these systems by the game's makers.

Just be forewarned that there's discussion of the series' plot and one potential ending for Mass Effect 2, in the event you don't actually want those things spoiled for you. Of course, you could always turn the sound off and just enjoy the amazing-looking visuals.
