IGN AU's Mass Effect review - It's here and it's great

IGN AU writes:

"A lot has been made (read: hyped) about Mass Effect's epic scope. Some of it is justified and some not so much; the Citadel space station is enormous, with a dozen sectors and a fast-travel transit system. Although you can join the plot-dots and play through the whole setting in a couple of hours, but sub quests, incidental encounters and exploration bump your time up significantly. The game widens its vista even further when you eventually gain control of the Normandy - your multi-levelled spacecraft."

"All of this is hardly enough to dull the radiant sheen of the rest of the game. For most gamers, it will hardly register at all. You'll be too captivated by the setting and likely the gradual upgrading of your gear; you'll be too busy exploring the strange escalating love triangle you can tinker with. You'll be collecting medallions, scanning planets for elements, metals, minerals, and gases. You'll talk a Krogan out of shooting you, charm your way through some conversations, flex your muscles in others. Heck, you'll even have to deal with a couple of nuclear devices before the game wraps up. BioWare has once again shown why they still stand at the top of the RPG tower, as Mass Effect does deservingly wear the 'epic' moniker."

Overall score: 9/10

Money is short. Incidentally, noticed over the last two years how many top rankers on the 360? Nice.

It got 9.4/10, not just 9/10.
