'Mass Effect' gets mass-ively addictive

The GATE reviewer had this to say: "What really stands out about Mass Effect is how quickly it turns from an intriguing game, to one I couldn't put down. The first hour was spent getting used to controls and movement, and then it was pure addictive bliss. Between the story, developing your character's abilities, and exploring the universe, I could have skipped the entire main quest and never looked back.

Finding a balance between exploring solar systems, and digging into the main quest was what actually made the title the most fun. Although there are times when you can have so many side quests it's hard not to get carried away, the main storyline is easily the most intriguing.

This review wouldn't be complete if I didn't make mention of all of the other amazing game elements. For one thing the music is phenomenal. At a recent event Casey Hudson, Project Director at BioWare, mentioned how they wanted to go for music reminiscent of sci-fi from the 70s and 80s, and I have to say it's a fantastic fit. Where a lot of games have gone for orchestral styles, Mass Effect is clearly rooted in electronic tones with otherworldly themes that fit perfectly." (Mass Effect, Xbox 360)

Agreed
I've been playing to 8-9 hours already and I've only completed 2 'missions'

Usually I would be tired of a game after playing campaign for this long, but I'm not

This game is crazy addictive, I predict I'll complete it in 15-20 hours (on casual)

Mass Effect kinda reminds me of Oblivion in the sense that I could easily see myself playing it for enough hours to complete all the side quests. I have no clue yet how many that is, but it's more than 30 I bet.

Yeah, this game is like crack. The RPG/shooter hybrid is definitely the coolest new category of video games. I can sit and play this a lot longer per session than if it were just a regular shooter.

So addicting I won't stop playing it untill my eyes burn out of my head. Crazy fun ridiculously hard and complex(looking for money for better amour died 20 times in the mining mission). Can't get the upper level in the Cenidel's? music out out of my head.
