          No, they mean va-jay-jay, because vagina is a cold and sterile word that does no justice to the female anatomy.

          Anyway, awesome cover, though the EA logo being all huge and bright draws too much attention to itself.

          You're one of those people who use euphemisms for "breasts," aren't you?

          I for one say "breasticles"

          Although "sweater bunnies" makes me chuckle.

    Well the main character doesn't look stiff and fake like in the first one.

    IS THAT A KROGAN IN THE BACKGROUND!

    To bad it doesn't come with that towel.

    Looks like the box art for a cheesy sci-fi action movie or something.

      Well it's kinda like a Sci-fi game lol. Intergalactic issues and such, Massive.

      Eh, I like the first game's box art more.

        Well, naturally. But the box art doesn't really do the game credit. I mean, I hear the first one was pretty damn good, so I'd expect that the sequel would have slightly... more awesome art on its box. Y'know?

    +points for a female party member that doesn't look like a man/have the same name as the main character in Evil Dead.

    +points for style

    +points for being Mass Effect

    +points for a mother *bleep*ING KROGAN

    -points for lack of Urdnot tbh though

      Thats not Urdnot?!

      Damn.

      I think they should remove the main character, since this is an RPG and we can customize alot about our main character even the sex, they should just show the cast and some geth.

      You know Wrex's first name is Urdnot, right ? And my money's on him being the krogan on the cover.

      That female doesn't look like Ashley, and Bioware said that there would be more squad members this time. Thane was already announced as one, so I'm guessing she's another.

        I know who Urdnot Wrex is, he's my favorite Krogan in Mass effect (though I would have proffered green eyes on him)

        I can't be to sure since that Girl looks almost NOTHING like Ashely so that might not be Wrex aswell. (If they remove my krogan people will start dying...unless if he has green eyes)

    I liked the boxart for the first one better. And I agree, the EA logo is a little too big.

    And is that guy Wrex? I thought I killed the sumbitch.

      Why would you kill Wrex ?

      He was the most badass squad member you could possibly want. The only way Wrex could get any cooler would be if he shot fireballs from his hands and had a laser beam attached to his head.

          Krogans have pets you know

          And there better than any earth dog there is out there.
          The vermite I think there called.

          Krogans are badass and Wrex defines the very definition of that.

    I'm not too crazy about the box art,but I'm pretty sure that Krogan is Wrex.

      Very rarely can this be said about a video game character and have it actually be not only possible, but it will unlock an achievement.
