I don't want to spoil anything but I would say this, you MUST play this game. Literally have to or you'll be missing out big time. The story is simply amazing, graphics are amazing, the gameplay is amazing, shooting mechanics at first are strange but you get used to it and it becomes easy.
This game has a lot of replay value, I'm starting my second play through right after my first completion.
There are so many side quests as well, this game will keep you so busy but never bored. This game was way ahead of its time and a lot better than 98% of the games out today.
Gotta thank the MS team for including BC to the X1 other wise I would've missed out on this classic, now I can't wait for ME2 and 3, and the next gen installment.

What more can I say, then buy and play it. Just know it is a story first, combat second. Bioware has a distinguished reputation for producing high-end RPGs that give you non-linear choices.
For those accustomed to Bioware, I simply say that I wish nowadays that Bioware would return to its older days with Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire, et al. I feel as we shift to more graphics, more fluff, more combat, we lose what the original concept of a RPG. Mass Effect 3 was a perilous balance (or imbalance) of story, combat, fluff, and cohesion (save the rest for the ME 3 review). The soundtrack of the ME series is good, I love M4 Pt. 2.
