Mass Effect is all about playing a role in a story. It doesn't really work as an open-ended galaxy where you can do whatever. Yes, you can go wherever you want and explore at some point, but the side-quests usually aren't that spectacular, anyway. It's a different kind of game, I think, and Mass Effect is good for what it tries to do (make you part of the story).

Another thing that I want to say is that people that try to play the game as a shooter a la Gears of Wars will totally hate the game. It doesn't have very good FPS mechanics and it will feel weird. It's much more fun to use your skills to good effect. Just thought I'd mention that after seeing someone in a video podcast say he hated it and "died like a thousand times."
