Technically, absolutely. The rest is very subjective. I'm sure they're proud of their work.
If they'd said "it's our best technical achievement", I suppose it would make more sense.
Personally, though, I think something like NWN is much, much, much more technically impressive.
The Unreal engine seems to work quite well for most developers, and I didn't see much in ME2 that stood out.
Won't deny that it looked great, but I didn't see anything that went beyond games like Gears of War, Bioshock, Batman AA, and games like that.
To me, they're all similar on a technical level and from an art direction viewpoint.
Very competent and smooth, but that's ultimately not my primary concern when playing a game.
