Vanguard is still my first choice, since of course my old ME1 character is what I'll playing as on my first playthrough. Eventually though I may just play through the game as each class. 
 
Also have to admit, that sci-fi grenade launcher is miighty tempting.

Soldier just seems so overpowered compared to other classes. I know that BioWare has improved the shooting so I guess this class shows that off best.

Is that a woman or a man? His/her name is Christina, yet he/she has a slightly male sounding voice.

Posted by KingOfIceland

I'm gonna go through my 1st (of probably 700) playthrough as a soldier since he's gonna be able to utilize most of the stuff available in the game.
 
Good to see that there is another Assault rifle model than the standard one, since it looks pretty awfull.

Posted by FuzzyLogic

Only Soldiers can use Assault Rifles? I may need to reconsider my character. Then again, I'm going to play through this game at least twice.

A Mass Effect trailer without speculation of the narrator's gender is no Mass Effect trailer at all!

Believe it or not, she is a woman. Weird, huh?

Why does everyone ask that question in every single one of these videos? It was kinda funny the first time but it's getting old now.
 
P.S. yes, it's a lady.

With the enhanced shooting, this class is a lot more attractive than in the first game.

Where's the turret at?  Can I grow bullets and heal my comrades by boom head shoting them? :p

I can wait for ME2, but I'm weary of the prospect of ammo.

Posted by Skald

Soldiers are boring. I'm going to be an engineer.

Posted by Noodles

I hope they make the other classes more viable (and fun to play) in ME2, since soldier was really the way to play the first game.

Are you sure?

Pretty awesome

@VonSoot Yes.

It's Vanguard On the first play through and solider on the second play though for me.

Really weird. I googled it when I saw the vanguard video. It was bugging the hell out of me.

So close to getting this.  Well, work and Barrett Jackson will keep me occupied so the wait wont be hard.

I have to admit, these videos of the different classes have been stunning. I don't just want to play Mass Effect 2, I want to play it six times so I can play all these different classes. I'm not sure anymore which class I want to be. Every time I watch one of these videos I change my mind! I still think I'll be a vanguard the first time through, but I can easily imagine myself playing through the second time as the Soldier.
 
Twelve more days. I've got my calendar cleared. I'm sure I'll be playing for at least two days straight.

When all else fails, use fire.

What the hell...she doesn't sound like a man at all =/

This game keeps looking better and better.

Too many guns is not enough guns.

I think you're confusing it with Borderlands.

@nanikore:  
 
really?  thats the only thing that came to mind after watching this video for you?
Posted by ITSSEXYTIME
@Noodles:

No way man, Vanguard was by far the most effective.



Posted by Floppypants

The soldier looks like it has an answer for anything the game can throw at it, plus bullet time and assault rifles.  I was leaning towards adept, but I'm sticking with soldier after watching this.

I honestly didn't know. It was not a joke.

If this is the only class that can use all the weapons and ammo... Why would I use any others?
 
Assault Rifles are always the meat of an action game.  This really sucks. 

Posted by Gregomasta

Shepard really looks different.

Posted by jmrwacko

I'm guessing you all played ME1 on the xbox. On the PC, the biotic classes were a lot more fun than the soldier because you had access to a toolbar that you could control with the number buttons, which made it so that you didn't have to pause the game to fire off biotic and tech powers.
 
But the soldier class and the new weapons look pretty sweet, especially the new assault rifles and the heavy weapons. I think I'll still be going adept, though.

This game is so inspired and exciting zzz..........

Woman.
Posted by giyanks22

Man...everyone of these vids looks better than the previous. Cannot wait to play this.

Posted by SmokePants

Most nerfed class? I doubt you'll be able to just keep activating immunity like you could before. High level soldiers in ME1 were nigh invincible.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

Looks like I am playing a Soldier.

Posted by sandwich_adjustment

so i guess he'll be carrying ALL the weapons as in ME1..even ones he or his party members cant use

Posted by Reverseface

I was gonna play vanguard because the Charge abilty looks sweet, but i really like the adrenaline and heavy weps so i'lll play this like i did in ME1. HURRAY!

Edited by Maclintok

She forgot to mention that if you play the Soldier, you better ratchet up that difficulty slider!  The Soldier could pretty much bulldoze through the first Mass Effect without many problems.  It's only after using one of the squishier classes that I built up an appreciation of the combat and skills system.

Posted by ooofafa
@Blair: i heard the ammo is still infinite, but you eject the heat sinks. so instead of waiting for the gun to cool down they just eject. there may just be ammo for the special types and some of the more heavy weapons. I could be wrong, but this seems like it would make more sense than having limited ammo for every guns.
Posted by Gamer_152

It'd be cool to have access to the assault rifles but I'd rather play a class that has access to tech or biotic powers.

It clearly sounds like a woman to me. I don't know what you people are talking a bout.

Posted by Shirogane

Wow, this is like, everything i hated about the first game fixed, as far as i can tell anyway. 
But considering it's an rpg, playing the second one without playing the first isn't something i want to do.
Posted by Haiitan_Knives_973

I loved being a soldier in ME1. It was my first WRPG and everything was new to me accept for the fact that I can shoot a gun well since I play a lot of shooters. The class did not disappoint. I felt like  the game could throw anything at me, and it was okay, cause I could not only shoot it, but shoot the ever living Christ out of it. Will be a soldier in ME2.

Posted by Gunny

Soldier class is Borderlands incarnate.

@Abyssfull: You can change your imported characters appearance and class at the beginning of Mass Effect 2.
