      Not bad, not good, just...Is?

      The Mass Effect trilogies are some of my favorite video games of the previous console generation. I’m a sucker for rich characters and deep world-building, and this is where the Mass Effect series really shined. The universe you occupied in these games felt real and lived-in. Each alien species had a rich history and their own relationships with humans. When I played Mass Effect games, I could imagine myself inhabiting this world. And now we have the new release, Mass Effect Andromeda. This game takes place some 600 years after the original series, with a ship of 20,000 colonists looking to make a new home in the Andromeda galaxy. You play an explorer named Ryder, and act as Pathfinder as you help the colonists find worlds to settle. However, Andromeda isn’t quite as hospitable as it seemed at first. Between skirmishes with hostile aliens, the crew also encounters The Scourge, a cloud of dark matter ravaging previously habitable worlds and making settlement less viable. But this desolation isn’t just thematic - this game feels a lot emptier than the previous games in the series. Rather than the dozen or so intelligent species from our home galaxy, here in Andromeda, we have two that are new to this game - one that is strictly hostile. A few of the Milky Way races return as well, but not enough to make the game feel as diverse as the first trilogy. The story isn’t bad, but it isn’t great either. It just kind of... is. Gameplay, however, is tighter than it ever has been in the series. Combat is third-person, and features more streamlined controls. It is much less stiff than it had been in previous games, and I rarely feel like the controls get in the way of how I want to make my character move. The game, of course, sets up for sequels (probably another trilogy), and I can feel the story ramping up to something that might be greater. For now, though, this branch of the story is something I never thought I’d call a Mass Effect game - kind of boring.

      A good game that will hopefully get more polish

      Andromeda has been a very fun game for me thus far, I've put in tons of hours into it thus far and have a lot still left to do in the game. I have already decided that this is a game I need to play more than once. The combat is great especially with the addition of the jump jet, it's fun to dash in and out of cover or just hover in the air and rain death from above upon enemies who are taking cover of their own. The story and dialog have been pretty great thus far in my opinion, especially between player character and the crew of the Tempest ship you get put in command of early in the game, there are some lines though that are complete duds; for instance someone actually utters the words "my face is tired" when having a conversation with my character. I do see its flaws though, the facial animations are not the greatest for one thing, but I'm hoping that can get fixed up some in a patch. Bioware has already started making improvements with their latest patch that made the eyes look better and not as dead/blank as they looked when the game first launched, so I hope they keep this up and continue to make improvements. Overall I think it's a good game that with some improvements will become a great game. Like I said earlier in the review I will be playing this again and I do hope there's some dlc planned for the future because I want to experience more of this game.

      Better than the reviewers say

      The reviews for this were blown WAY out of proportion. Andromedas biggest flaw is in its technical issues. Many of its characters have plastic expressions akin to mass effect 1. But, bioware is patching these by the day. Another of its cruxes is its choice of squadmates. When compared to past cast-members, they're relatively uninteresting and disappointingly, there's only one new race to add to your team. Despite these things, andromeda takes some bold risks that make it a great addition to the franchise. The combat is the best in the series. It's more mobile and fast paced thanks to the addition of jump-jets, and more customizable with the abolishing of the traditional class system from previous games. Instead of being locked into one class from start to finish, all abilities are open from the beginning, and you are free to mix combat, biotic, and tech abilities in interesting ways. Andromeda also does a fantastic job of instilling a feeling of adventure in the player. You really feel like a trailblazer, setting up outposts and colonies on new planets, discovering awesome flora and fauna, and gathering resources for your cause. It's what no mans sky SHOULD have been. And despite some disappointing facial animations and some boring characters, I got absolutely addicted to the combat and exploration that andromeda excels at.

      After reading the reviews on the game, I felt a little skeptic about keeping my pre-order. Good thing I didn't cancel, because 3 hours into the game, I was hooked! There is a great story to the game, and I really love the combat controls they have for in the game. It does take a little getting used to, but I would say an hour in you'll be fine with the controls. I am playing this on my Xbox One S hooked to a 4k TV, and the HDR feature in this game looks beautiful! Some side quests are somewhat annoying with "Hey go to this planet", then spend 5 minutes just getting to that planet to have them go "Go to this planet now". Maybe it's me, but that tends to get a little annoying at times. As for the animation, I don't see it being a problem as I look past that because it's not why I bought the game. But if knowing the issue they have with the animation and for that to bother you, I would wait for a sale as they would most likely have that patched up. I tend to compare a lot of RPG games to The Witcher 3, and I will be honest with it not up to that standard. But I'm still enjoying the game and have sunken a good amount of hours so far in this game exploring the world and getting into some heavy gun fights!

      A Decent Successor to the Previous Trilogy

      This game had a lot to live up to, especially after the disappointment felt by fans who played ME3. After playing this game, I can confidently say "Meh?" First, the Bad: facial animations, glitches, etc. They are what we knew them to be. Whatever reasons you may have, they are noticeable and annoying on occasion. The Ok: ambition. For an entirely new galaxy and huge potential, the game only delivers enough to make you want more. You have aliens, ships, interesting interplay between yourself and various factions (all reasonably satisfying). However, it all seems like new upholstery on an old couch. The Good: RPG depth. If you like detail, you have more than enough. Lots of information and more if you are willing to explore. Want to know about the minutia of an alien race? You can find it. Also, the attention to atmospheric constraints (heat/cold/radiation/etc.) and weight make this game more complex, but in a way that is a bit more reasonable given the complexities of planetary compositions and ability of people to survive and even thrive in remarkable conditions. Overall, worth buying, but you may want to wait until patches are released for the worst issues.

      Mass Effect: Good, Maybe Great

      Things to keep in mind: * This is a different story in the same universe. * First version on next gen systems * A lot of the the actual play is better than any version before * Suffers from same graphics issues and gripes as every version before as they attempt to push their game engines limits. (All those games received 9/10) * Lead Designer left franchise * The new aliens and depth of story is lacking a bit. * Voice acting on point * More great music What you can take away here is this game is really a great game, but received a lower score for those of us that have been with the franchise for a long time. You could feel a 'color-by-numbers' approach to the production of the title. They took few chances, delivered a clean experience and just like "The Force Awakens" attempted to re-intorduce a game franchise to a new generation. Every Stephen King book isn't amazing and they sometimes follow the same formulas. Video games are no different. We discuss a bit of that in our podcast https://soundcloud.com/attleorldedia/wla-ep-43-mass-effect-andromeda. Hope this helps.

      Decent Game

      The Gameplay is Ok. And by summary I mean that if you want to jump upon a ledge or over an obstacle be sure to measure the distance because if you are a millimeter too close you will judder and gyrate but go nowhere and look like you have parkinsons. Also you will be a sitting duck to be whaled upon buy the enemy until death, rinse and repeat. FIX YOUR JUMP MECHANIC BIOWARE! This is the single most reason for 3 stars. If I could just jump properly I would rate 5. But when you can't program a single simple mechanic, like jumping correctly, maybe you need to rethink the "game development" path you have taken in life! Also, FUGLY women! Why Bioware, why? The first 3 games had beautiful human women and hot as H-E double hockeystiks alien women. Dialogue and story are meh at first and then the story takes off. And yes there are weird animations and glitches. IDK why my copy has an abhorrent amount of bugs but Bioware is usually good about fixing bugs. All in all, if they would fix the jumping problem it would be a great game. Overall I give it a 7 out of 10. it would be an 8.5 but when you can't jump it is extremely hard to overlook.

      After reading the overwhelming amount of Reviews and YouTube posts about this game, I was hesitant about getting it. But the more research I did, the more I started to realize that they are NOT about the game play but much more about getting "hits and ratings" for their channel. We live in a bizarre time and now more than ever, you simply cannot trust mob trends any longer for legitimate information, as almost all YouTube channels have an agenda that may, or may not have anything to do with the topic or game. This is a spectacular game period! Massive maps and endless engaging storylines are accompanied by some of the best combat gameplay I've experienced, smooth, accurate and comletely addictive. The early complaints about graphic issues were the bulk of all the YouTube reviews and no longer apply after recent patches and updates. That might make for lots of click bait, but is very misleading. This game is an open world spectacular!
