Its a great game but the janky launch+animations just killed it, people were shitting on it with no remorse, despite that, underneath its a very good game

I've already got over 100 hours on this game and I only bought it 3 weeks ago when it was on sale for €30.

I had a bad feeling about MEA since I saw the first gameplay trailer last year: despite the much-improved combat system, the lame dialogues and NPCs were hard to miss. Something didn't feel Mass Effect about it, at all.

Fast forward a year and I put this game on par with the rest in the series. The stick this game has got is beyond belief. I don't know whether it is the popular bandwagon-jumping trend of modern times or the game was far worse than it is now at launch, or possibly a mixture of both - but I can tell you, I've had a wonderful time in Andromeda and it is hard to believe Bioware may have shelved such a deep franchise for good.

The combat, as I said, is fantastic. Enemy AI is the best I've seen in my life. Story telling, the main story and Member Assignments and developing a bond with your crew (as gay as it may sound) are as good as it has ever been. Graphics look beautiful and so do models. People who raged at MEA should play ME3 back-to-back with this and see the huge improvements without their nostalgia-tinted glasses.

By no means MEA is a flawless game. Trying to be a bit of GTA open world game where it is not Bioware's strong point at all. Adding MMO-style fetch quests is another bummer. This is where Bioware have rushed things and went for quantity rather than quality. You can't have both (unless you're Rockstar) and I would have preferred a few memorable side-missions rather a lot of boring grinds. They should have stuck to what they are good at: story-telling, depth of characters etc.

But all in all, this was a great adventure and I only have the media and crybabies to blame for the end of one of gaming's most acclaimed franchises.

Pathfinder, out.

Played for a couple of hours out of the 10 hour trial.

Not sure what to think really, on one hand the combat and exploration seems great but the characters, story, quests and writing seems boring at best which is what most people play a Mass Effect game for.

I have no interest in them or their story so far which makes it hard to keep playing, maybe it gets better but as of right now it's not screaming it buy it.

Exactly my problem with it. From the little I played of it, the story or character were not engaging at all.

This might sound like making excuses but the first 8 hours are the worst part of the game Laughing

Which also means most people who were half-hearted about buying the game will definitely make their mind up not to buy it after playing this demo.

I wouldn't be surprised if it got better, honestly most RPGs start slowly.

But it's not giving much of a reason to want to continue tbh.
