    A great game with minor flaws--in a cool case

    Mass Effect: Andromeda is both a sequel and a reboot of the successful Mass Effect series of video games. The action is set FAR in the future and many, many light years from the Milky Way as the Andromeda Initiative heads to the Andromeda galaxy. But, of course, things are not so rosy once they arrive. You play as a Pathfinder and your job is to assemble an elite team to make first contact with Andromeda species, establish viable colonies, and fight those who would welcome your colonists with violence. The flaws? Well, I find the basic look of the Pathfinder somewhat off-putting. Most of the Human character models are "old school" in a bad way. And the way the male Pathfinder moves is awkward at best. Watching him run around the Nexus or the Tempest and flapping his elbows like a turkey near Thanksgiving is pretty laughable. Driving around in the Nomad vehicle looking for minerals can be fun, but also tedious. There are some limited tutorials, but the game leaves a LOT (too much!) for you to figure out on your own (like how to choose your squad or the ins and outs of crafting weapons and armor). The combat is pretty fun, but multiplayer combat has a steep learning curve. The steelbook edition from Best Buy is just that...a steelbook to put the game in. The design on the front is different than the regular case. And it's metal, so it has heft. If you're a steelbook collector, you should be happy with this one. All in all, this is a good game and should please sci-fi gamers and Mass Effect fans.

    This is more than a game case for Mass Effect 4

    Don't be fulled by this case. I know it has all the markings of something exclusive to the video game, Mass Effect: Andromeda,but it is so much more.You see, you certainly can use it to store the game and you'd be a good sport to do that. However, it also makes a great case for dollar bills, other random games (that's right, this case fits any disc shaped game made for PS One, PS2, PS3, PS4, XBox, XBox 360, XBox One, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, Gamecube, Turbo Graphix CD, Sega CD, Atari Jaguar, etc), cat nip, credit cards, and so on. I like the slightly gritty texture and the weight of this. I think in the summer, when it's really hot, I'll put it in the freezer (no game inside, duh) and press it against my cheek. It's fantastic. So, do you need this? No, probably not.

    Not as Good as the Main Trilogy, but Still Fun

    I personally really liked this. The story wasn't up to the level I hoped (the two new alien races either instantly shoot at you or very quickly accept you and I thought there could have been more tensions in trying to get along as a visitor from a far-off world), but I still like most of the characters, the gameplay is a lot of fun, it's fun to role-play in this universe, and I personally haven't experienced the bugs that seem to crop up in a lot of gameplay footage. It doesn't feel like it has advanced as far as other series like the Witcher, but I still got absorbed into the world the same way I did with the prior games.

    I can't say enough how much I love this steel case. The artwork on the cover is worthy of a renaissance master. Since it's made of steel that means my game will be safe from the environment for years to come. I can also stack other games without the fear of buckling. Will wonders never cease. I highly recommend this product. Here's hoping that more games will include the steel book. Oh wait, persona 5 just did it. As did horizon zero dawn. Tekken 7 and Injustice 2 will also do. But the difference is that this is FREE. Nothing is better than free.

    Gears of War Judgement Syndrome

    Hello, The game has been fixed but it's suffering from Gears of War Judgement Syndrome. This game will drop in price fast so no need to buy it now. I like Mass Effect but this seems like a spinoff due to the quality of the game, etc. It's not bad at all but it's a step backwards. Check out my gaming channel launching next weekend (5/6/17). I will discuss Mass Effects future and more on YouTube next weekend. My gaming channel will be called retrobasement. My name is Miguel Torez so email me if you have questions. Cheers,

    Interesting, but not as good as the originals

    I liked Mass Effect Andromeda. Like so many RPGs, there are a ton of options for character customization, but the story is lacking. There are a lot of side quests on a bunch of planets and a lot are designed so you have to run back and forth from one planet or outpost to another. This wouldn't be bad but load times are terrible. It doesn't seem that your decisions matter as much as they did in the original series but I did have fun with it. The car is a lot of fun once you upgrade it.

    Absolutely beautiful Steelbook

    I love Best Buy's physical pre-order bonuses. They always end up being much better than expected, and the steelbook is no exception. It is absolutely beautiful and I can't find anything bad to say about it. I guess the only con is that the game didn't come in the steelbook so I have the original plastic packaging to throw out. Looking forward to more physical pre-order exclusives in the future!

    Protect Your Video Game With Metal!

    This is an awesome addition to your Mass Effect Andromeda purchase because its stylish, cool art work, and made of damage resistant steel!!! Nothing is more metal than a game case made of metal, unless it was space age Titanium (which for clarity sake it is not). I think this was a pre order bonus so you're probably outta luck but if you find one you'll enjoy putting your disc in it
