Average User Score: 4.8Apr 7, 2017I just finished off the campaign and I absolutely loved the story. There's not as much of a sense of urgency as the original trilogy, but thisI just finished off the campaign and I absolutely loved the story. There's not as much of a sense of urgency as the original trilogy, but this one is just as fantastic. In fact they wrapped it up super nice and left it open for DLC and more to come. Great ending to the main campaign. I completely had some OMG moments.
Combat was fun and immersive. Cover didn't always work but having the jetpack made that unnecessary a lot of the time. It was also nice being able to use biotic powers along with tech. Mixing and matching whatever you preferred.
As for people griping over the new crew all I can say is get over it. If you give the new crew a chance you will find they are pretty fantastic. You got connected to the original trilogy crew over 3 games. Give this one a chance. They really grow on you. We're never getting Garrus and Joker back.
As for facial animations, there were a couple of scenes where it might have bugged me but it was so bad it was actually comical and not game breaking. Do I wish my Sara Ryder could smile without looking like a clown ... yes. But maybe that will be fixed with a patch. Even then it didn't detract from the game for me.
I also see people complaining about the sidequests. I don't get it. People don't complain about these fetch quests in Skyrim and some of these are actually interesting and add to the story. On top of that you don't have to do them. You do not need to do sidequests to receive 100% viability on a planet. If you want to do them feel free. I really can't see why people would complain about the addition of these sidequests. No one is forcing you to do them.
Lastly the MP in Mass Effect is awesome. It's truly one of the only games I have really put a ton of time into playing MP with. The whole team combat thing really works well with the Mass Effect universe. I loved it in 3 and I love it in Andromeda.
I'm really looking forward to what happens next with this series. This was not a disappointment. Happy endings can happen in the Mass Effect universe :D… Expand

Voice acting was once again fantastic, story was great and the world was just beautiful. While there are some glitches, I've now played this game through on the Xbox One and the 360 and they were not game breaking (for me anyway).
*The controls felt a little odd at first, but once you really get into the game I really like them. I thought it was a little weird at first that you had to keep holding down the attack button once attacking an enemy, but honestly this just became second nature once you got a bit into the game.
*The story and romances in this one are really well written. I'm glad they've dropped the underwear in the shower deal, seeing as this game is rated M anyway.
*There is tons to explore. I whipped through this game on the One and now that I'm replaying it on the 360 I'm doing different story options and exploring some areas more in depth and didn't realize how much I had missed in my first playthrough.
*I actually like the side quests. I know some of them are just fetch quests, but they make sense. Plus if you return to areas later, the people you did quests for will thank you and change their dialogue and whatnot.
For the people who are whining and complaining and comparing this game to Skyrim I just don't get it. I mean I like the Elder Scrolls games and all, but there is just hardly any story there. I never give a crap about any of the people in that world. It's a fun dungeon crawler with a bit of story mixed in as filler. And I love it. But, Dragon Age is just much more than that. They have made this game more open world. The areas are huge and there's ton of stuff to do and find. The combat was fun and much improved over Dragon Age 2. There were no enemy waves falling from the sky. It was more reminiscent of Dragon Age Origins. It's a fantastic game and if you stick your nose up to it, it's your loss. This game rocks!… Expand

Average User Score: 6.3May 29, 2013I don't understand why publisher's these days get to keep releasing games for $50-60 and they're not done, polished or QCd. After playingI don't understand why publisher's these days get to keep releasing games for $50-60 and they're not done, polished or QCd. After playing this game for a few minutes the sound completely dropped out. Dashboarding helped that problem, but when my friend who was playing had the same thing happen at the same point that seems to be a glaring problem. Also zombies respawn in thin air, if you're fighting in the water the game slows down to a crawl and I could go on and on.… Expand

Loved the characters andI absolutely loved this game and was so absorbed in the story I hardly slept for 3 evenings so I could finish it. Loved the characters and the dialog change. An absolutely great game. I know some people didn't like the recycled dungeons and it would have been nice to have some different scenery, which is the only reason I have downgraded this to a 9. Kudos bioware!… Expand
