One's actions will have a "Mass Effect" on the way the game plays out.

According to the 1up show, Mass Effect was around 15-20 hours long.

Is thier any truth in that?

And I'm talking overall story without side quests. Also, they loved the game but a few of them thought the side quests kinda of sucked.

15-20 hours. Thats not to bad, As long as the side quest options are broader than KOTOR or Oblivion

Kinda buggers up some of the earlier hype if true though.

The game title comes from an in-game phenomenon.

Well, I heard it was to do with all the powers in-game. You know, 'cos they cannot use the Force any more.

For some reason GameRankings didn't hav ethe GameTrailers review on their list, anyway here it is: http://www.gametrailers.com/player/27704.html

"Too many sidequests", one of the best things I have heard in a while.

On the title meaning, all of your are wrong. As unclimactically as it sounds, Mass Effect is simply named after the Mass Effect Field technology that was discovered on Mars or something, which rocketted Humankind into the space age.

Err, no, I am right, actually, seeing as I was working from a quote from the project manager.

The opening of the game says what Mass Effect is, I forget what it says, but you can see it on IGN in the video of the opening scene.

Ushy is correct: http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3152811

And wikipedia was kind enough to sort out the important info from all that text for me:

"Inside the game universe, mass effect is a newly discovered (for humans anyway) physics phenomenon that has properties along the lines of other physics forces such as gravity and electromagnetism. It's what physicists in real life are currently calling "dark energy," as an explanation for the accelerating expansion of the universe -- which has only recently been discovered and flies in the face of the previous notion that the universe's expansion should be slowing down because of gravity"

Eh, didn't read Ush's post, but I guess that makes us both right.

I heared that the game is really good but has some signficant flaws in it.

Still picking it up because I loved KOTOR.

After my first hour of play. I am, thus far, highly impressed. The character customization is thorough, even allowing a back story for your character to be chosen. I am already intrigued by the potential of the story. It seems that the class options actually offer difference in gameplay. The gameplay is both foreign and familiar. The combination of action adventure and RPG elements seem as though they are going to culminate in an intense experience. I'm not sure the over the shoulder aspect will be enough to lure fps fans. Although, it certainly does an incredible job at adding a fresh feel to the RPG aspect. It reminds me of the decision Bethesda chose in integrating the first person mode to Oblivion. It turned many RPG fans off, but gave slight but radical tone to the game. THe RPG element of this game seems as though it is going to be very deep and ever changing like the story.
The few glaring problems i have met in the game is that it is glitchy at times and the environment textures dont always load seemlesly. Ive also noticed a few frame rate struggles. I dont know if these problems are forgivable, considering how long the game has been in development, but the game seems like it is going to be an original gaming experience none the less

As expected, it did not come in the mail, today. However, my friend wants to rent it at blockbuster today, though I doubt they have it. Sigh...

i dont know, im on the fence about this game. the only problems ive heard with it so far is that there are a lot of issues with framerate and clunky menu controls. ill probably get it, but thats just frustrating because with a game of this potential you'd think they'd weed out that sort of thing.
