I bought Andromeda and played it for a few hours and it doesn't seem to be the turd some make it out to be. But I also can't say its an amazing game. ME1 and 2 I couldn't stop playing to see where it went but I don't really have that desire here just yet. The characters, bad guys and initial plot aren't really interesting to me yet. Its just there.

ME:A is certainly stuck in the past. The animations, dialogues and writing aren't a step above last-gen, instead they're well below the likes of Horizon, Witcher etc. The bar has been raised. The way default Ryder speaks with and looks at other people is jarring, its hard to take seriously. I think even the original trilogy did this better.

The gameplay is improved because there is auto cover and you can jump which means its level design has more layers. But the team commands are gone and the encounter design is just about sudden enemy waves so far.

I don't think its a bad game though, just one that feels dated and not better than the original trilogy.

I am enjoying the multiplayer. And the game looks great in 4K HDR.

I haven't tried the campaign yet...need to finish HZD first.

Oh I forgot about Street Fighter V although they disappointed for very different reasons.

FYI all of the games above are atleast origional and do 1 thing extremely well. (Exploration:No Mans Sky, The Order 1886:Pretty Graphics, Quantum Break: TV Show integration, Destiny:Gameplay, SFV:Gameplay, Evolve:Asynchronous Multiplayer)

Mass Effect is just an unpolished Mediocre game that laks ambition, Good Writing, performances ect. Its the Terminator Genesis of Mass Effect.

Fucking scatching. Poor Mass Effect.

Well, as a complete die-hard fan of this franchise. Playing it makes me feel like Obi-Wan when he was yelling at Anakin about being the chosen one :(

I'm enjoying it, but I think the Metacritic average is fair. If this were a brand new game from a small developer, I'd be impressed with how ambitious they were despite not always hitting their target. Coming from one of the most critically acclaimed developers and one of the biggest publishers in the world makes it easier to be a little less forgiving, but the inherent fun in the game is there, it's a lot more flawed than what I was initially expecting.

But the characters are growing on me, and, as usual, half the fun is just wandering around talking to people or taking the Nomad for a spin to see what's out there.
