    I'm in my mid 40's and have gamed since Intellivision. I played the ME series on both PS and Xbox and loved them. Character stories, the plot, all pulled you in even tho the boring resource/planet scanning was boring and the combat mechanics were horrible. About 5 hours in and nothing changed... and thats not a good thing. The graphics are not current gen. The same clunky combat mechanics are in place, camera view is still over the shoulder which limits view. It really feels like Andromeda was made 10 years ago and put out last week. Takes up almost 50 gigs of space and the load times are everything you'd expect out of a '90's game, super slow and happens a lot. Def didn't expect this out of current gen. Back in the day you had to swap between multiple discs, so the load times were expected. Everytime you go somewhere theres a 30-90 second load. Even worse, the main story tries to incorporate multiplayer for Strike Mission. However, when I tried it, I found out it saves you game and launches you into multiplayer. No issue with that. Until you are finished with it and want to get back to the story. Apparently the engineer who smoothly transferred you into multiplayer, didn't write the code for going back as it puts you back to the MAIN MENU...which means you not only have to connect back to the servers for gameplay, but once again LOAD back into the game. I have one of the best headsets available, the Astro A50 Gen 3 for Xbox One. They are wasted on the sound in this game. They state 5.1 surround, but 2.1 seems more accurate. Maybe even 2 cause not much bass, lol Lots of glitches too. My fav is when I start running the character will go rigid, straight up and down, arms by his side and seems to take tiny hops to move. Or like many games of the 90's and 2000's, the area is visually clear of enemies until you pass the magic line and poof! bad guys. The story is fun and entertaining as the first 3 were. But its so slow, add in the waiting to load times and it sucks the life out of this game. I'm an avid Titanfall/2 player with deep roots in COD and BF, so seemly and fast multiplayer is something I'm familiar and good at. 15 years ago the ME style of combat was different, but not better than FPS. Why they would use this much older style I'm not sure. It turned many of my gaming friends off from buying it at all. Waited all this time and I'm actually upset how bad it is. I don't normally give such negative reviews, but I am always dead honest. If you buy it, buy it for the campaign (50 hours plus they say), but def not for multiplayer. Its about as fun and ridiculous as the Assassins Creed attempt. Thrown together to wet the appetites of multiplaying gamers, but its junk. * Side note, I originally purchased thru BB as a PS4 game, but returned for One version

    Being a big fan of the first 3 games in the series, I was really looking forward to this game. I pre-ordered it despite the fact that I shy away from "day one" purchases these days where games are released in "unfinished" states, requiring patches and DLC to make them whole. Let's get the negatives out of the way first. The character animations, even after 2 patches to "fix" them are still not that great. Every time you talk to someone, it gives a close up of both your character and the NPC. The facial movements of the human characters are just off. The alien characters don't seem to have the same issues, but all of the humans just look a bit weird. Something I usually scoff at when people complain about it is frame rate. 9 times out of 10, if someone mentions that a game's frame rate is "choppy," I don't notice it. You really can't miss it here, and it happens in weird places. Instead of happening when you would expect it, say an intense fire fight with multiple enemies on screen, it happens when you're driving your land vehicle and nothing is around you. Or after you've closed out your crafting menu. With that said, there is still a very good game here. Combat is fun and satisfying and you can approach the fights a number of different ways. Want to be a bullet sponge and wade in with shotguns and melee weapons, they have a character build for that. Want to be a sniper and hang back while your squad mates do the heavy lifting, you can do that too. It's fun and fast paced. Mission variety is all over the place. Most of it is fun - particularly the loyalty missions for your squad and the vault sequences. there are some tasks that are just boring/annoying. But that's the case with any game of this size and type. I'm only about 75% through the game, but I'm having fun, and am invested in the story, so I'll definitely play through to the end. I haven't played the multiplayer portion as it's not my thing, but friends of mine have told me it's like the in game combat, only better since your opponents are real people and therefore actually a challenge. It is not the best game in the series - that honor still goes to Mass Effect 2 in my opinion. I think it's a nice jumping off point for a new series in this universe. It's the start of a new story, so if you've never played the first 3 games, you won't be lost. The references to the original trilogy are minimal thus far. Apparently the game isn't selling up to expectations, as EA just put the series "on hiatus," so that means we probably won't see a sequel for a while. If you're still undecided, maybe wait for a sale.

    Definitely Mass Effect

    I've played BioWare Games from the beginning, and they have their ups (Dragon Age: Origins, ME 1,2) and their downs (Dragon Age 2, and for some, Inquisition). This one is definitely an "up". Much larger in scope than 1 or 2, you may not "land" on as many planets, but the ones you do are different and meaningful. Unlike Inquisition, the side quests actually mean something and have an effect. You don't have to craft, but you can make some nice gear. You don't have to gather resources, but if you want to craft they're easily purchasable. The visuals are beautiful. I'm about 50-60 hours in, and I've only encountered a few (3-4) very minor bugs. The initial load when starting the game is long, but I haven't had long load screens at any other time, including fast travel. As a negative, the menus are a bit of a mess. In crafting, there is no way to sort your blueprints, so finding the one you want is a pain. Tracking all the quests in a game with a TON of them can be a pain, but at least we CAN track them, and see what stage they're in (unlike ME 3). The visuals are Mass Effect. Everything looks like it belongs in a a ME game. Only 2 "intelligent" races, but this game only covers one cluster in the Andromeda galaxy. It stands to reason that more are "out there" for future games. Yes, some faces are... odd, but that's been every BioWare game ever, and isn't that noticeable when you're into the game. I find the story interesting, and it doesn't make feel forced to rush through. ME3's story had me feeling like I was trying to "beat the clock", and ME2 forced you into missions based on how many side missions you had done. Andromeda allows you time, like you're truly there to explore. Combat is an improved form of ME3/ME3 multiplayer. The jump jet increases mobility and allows you get around the battlefield quickly. Weapons all feel different. Smart cover actually works, and works perfectly. Mulitplayer is exactly the same as ME3, with the sole exception of the jump jet, which makes it a lot better. Sessions give you more than enough "credits" to buy upgrade and supply packs every 2-3 matches. Matches start quickly, and I haven't experiences any lag, but I'm usually the host and I have very strong internet. Of note, all of the above was on my Xbox One S, which is my primary console. I've only played 3 hours on my original Xbox One, and the graphics were slightly fuzzier there. All in all, I love the game, and I think a lot of people are dog piling and being hypercritical. To me, this game is almost on par with ME2, better than ME3, and way better than Dragon Age: Inquisition.

    After playing through several hours of Mass Effect Andromeda I find myself disheartened more and more. Somewhere beneath the unpolished animations and stilted dialogue, along with an annoying and antiquated scanning system as well as ammo retrieval system is a good game unfortunately I don't know if I have the patience to find it. With the amount of time in between Mass Effect 3 and Andromeda and the number of AAA RPGs and adventure games that have been released in that time, Andromeda does not live up to its predecessor or its competition. It's certainly not a bad game but I do think it's an unfinished product if the numerous and sizable patches that had to be released in the short time since its launch are any indication. Despite the fact that the character creation left me feeling a bit disappointed and the story and dialogue fall flat very often I will say that the combat is fun and fast paced especially the biotic powers, the Nomad handles well and looks awesome, the fact that you can really tailor your combat classes is fun and engaging even if it somewhat overpowers you after a while and of course the majority of your supporting crew members are interesting and make you want to learn more about them.I would reluctantly recommend this game to Mass Effect completionists only. If you have never played an ME game before, DO NOT start with this one. I think it boils down to the fact that this game does not exist in a vacuum. Other games do what this game promises and more, better. Breath of The Wild, Horizon Zero Dawn and the Witcher 3 are all prime examples of better execution on a large scale. So should you play this game? If you're jonesin' for a sci-fi action RPG then give it a try, there is a decent amount to like but overall it is still a game that seemed rushed to release and could have used a little while longer in the BioWare oven.

    The original Mass Effect trilogy is easily on my favorite top ten list of games ever (especially #2) so I've been looking forward to this game for years now. And when it came out with some of the negative buzz I was very surprised and sad. But I ofcourse still got it and played it to see for myself, and we're these bad reviews warranted? No, not all of them. Yes it has bad face animations in some parts of the game, the characters weren't as cool, and the story isn't amazing, but the rest of the game is beautiful and it be very hard for any story to surpass the original trilogies story. And this is why I think it got some bad reviews, nostalgia. Fans hyped this game up so much and the first ones were so great it was almost impossible to live up to people expectations for this game. People expected the best game ever, and it's not. But you know what, its super fun to play. The gameplay is so addicting and amazing (even better than the originals in some ways) and fighting is just amazing. You have so much freedom while fighting, you can dash and use your jet pack to fly, to which all these new additions make the combat amazingly fun. And it still has all the great exploration fans of this game come to expect (a true action RPG for completionists). And all the great dialogue and romancing that everyone loved about the others as well. So is this game better then the originals, no, but it definitely holds its own and is a joy just the be back in the mass effect universe. If they learn from this games mistakes while build upon what they did better, the next one will know doubt be the one everyone should be really excited for. Def give this game a try, its a great game, don't listen to the haters.

    So here's why I gave Mass Effect Andromeda a 3 star rating. First off, the cinemas look great but the game play and multiplayer graphics are previous gen. Sound isn't impressive either in stereo or 5.1 (Turtle Beach 800X). The story is nothing new, it's a new arc in itself but have a lot of similarities so far (about 4 hours in). The multiplayer has micro-transactions, which I admit I'm a sucker for. There are a lot of items to get and upgrade, just slightly more than ME3. Strike Team multiplayer is interesting as you can play certain missions yourself or with a group OR have your own team perform the task which is time based. I've already hit a hiccup in the game where 23 Premium Packs ALL yielded supplies, NOT the "at least 2 Rares" as stated on the description. They weren't all like this, just the last 23 - which is a lot at $2.61 per pack. Currently the "servers" are horrid. Connections for hosting are appalling, joining a game and staying to complete the missions are a task. In my opinion, this game is decent, could be better when EA fixes their servers or patches multiplayer data. EA is not new to the gaming table, but lately - especially after Star Wars Battlefront, they leave a lot off of the table and I now distrust their products. This review is after playing the game for only 3 days. Hopefully they renew my faith and EA brings some quality to this title/series.

    I had a great time with the game. It gave me a throwback to the old days of ME1. The stories are well written, the traits of the different alien races are well presented and the gameplay is great. Yes, the game is a bit buggy and sometimes loads in characters a bit late (at least on xone), but it is nothing game breaking and just requires a bit of patience from time to time. I finished the game within 75 hours and during that time only once I encountered one bad bug in a quest where I had to kill myself to progress....so again nothing special here. The game is in a good state now. The skill system is very nice and easy to understand, giving your followers the right abilities allows you to synergize and create effective comobos. Also the weapon crafting offers a great variety of options. You can create weapons that shoot lighting beams, which melt through shields, or weapons which shoot explosive projectiles. The only thing I didn't like as much was the music in the game, it just didn't hit my spot (but whatever...to each his own) All in all i had a great time with the game, it really fell in line with the earlier mass effects....too bad they closed the developer team down.

    I purchased this game for much cheaper than it was at release. I went into it having loved the previous Mass Effect games and for less than a ticket to a movie, I figured it would be worth at least two hours of laughter. I actually got a mediocre to decent sci-fi experience. The story is awful, let's just get that out of the way. The characters are one dimensional and goofy and the writing is some of the worst in a modern AAA game. This is why it has the scores it has. However, I was a big fan of the vision of terraforming/exploration the game had at its core and the game itself is visually appealing. The quests can be really fun or a confusing mess. The latter ones appear far too often and it's clear that the game lacks polish. So why four stars? The game is worth the four stars now that it's bargain basement priced. There are redeeming parts of the game and even a bit of real 'mass effect' fun amongst the rough outer layers. If you have time, give it a go. There are certainly better games to spend your money and time on, but if you crave sci-fi experiences the way I do, this is a solid entry for the price.
