Amadeo Plaza reviews Mass Effect for Gamer 2.0. His recommendation:
"Mass Effect is simply another one of those titles that you have to own. Make no mistake, it certainly is a time investment, and may be a daunting task for some. But it is in no way a game to overlook or even put off to a later date. If you have the time or the interest, there shouldn't be much second thought."
Why you should buy it: There is a level of grandeur unparalleled in this game that simply has to be experienced by any self respecting gamer.
Why you should rent it: The new third-person shooter combat system may not be your cup of tea, and that is actually expected of many who pick it up.
