However, Mass Effect 2 was a bigger disappointment than Alpha Protocol. It's main story, the main strength of Mass Effect 1, was utter crap. And that's putting it lightly.
And JDR13, I know how you're feeling. I tried to like the Saudi Arabia missions, but couldn't. I was about to give up on it too, but it really gets better right after that. So when you get a bit of time in the future, I'd really recommend to play it a bit further.
