    BioWare doesn't take risks and reuses already known elements and mechanics and the result is a massive game with many hours of fun. Technical issues are obvious, although not so serious to burden five years of development work from a studio that has brought us great moments in the past and will keep doing it in the future. Andromeda exists to be thoroughly explored with that curiosity that fuels the Initiative. It's not perfect, but it's without a doubt enjoyable.

    If you could combine the story and memorable quests of the originals with the combat, visuals and scope of Andromeda, you would have the perfect video game, though I think what's offered here will satisfy most. Despite its issues, Andromeda is welcome return to one of my favorite fictional universes, and I am still not ready to let Mass Effect go. I'm not sure I ever will be.

    Opinions of Mass Effect: Andromeda will differ greatly based on expectations. The game still provides many hours of enjoyment and lots of the good things that fans have come to expect, but those hoping the series uses this opportunity to take another giant leap may find themselves brought back to Earth with a bump. For everything the development team has done right, there is a little misstep that holds it back, particularly when building the overall story. It's still a highly enjoyable game, but not as stellar as many might have hoped.

    Mass Effect: Andromeda is an unbalanced experience. It’s an incredibly ambitious game with a colossal scope, but it doesn’t always hit the right notes.

    While it’s underwhelming in places, there’s a lot to like as you venture into the weirder parts of Andromeda. Frequent technical issues hamper the experience a bit, as does an uninspiring main story. [June 2017, p66]

    Unfortunately, Mass Effect: Andromeda picked up some unwelcome visitors on its long journey to your gaming machine. Though it has some stellar moments, “Andromeda” tries to cram too many ideas into one package, turning its obsession with the bigness of space into a crutch for uncharacteristically shoddy workmanship.

    It's also an utter mess in a technical sense. There are a few enjoyable moments here and there, and over time you can see the skeletal framework of a better game start to emerge, but given the heights Mass Effect has reached in the past, it's hard to believe this is what we've been waiting five years for.

    First of all, I have to say that the artists did a good job with this game. Music and art are synchronous with Mass Effect.

    Everything else
    First of all, I have to say that the artists did a good job with this game. Music and art are synchronous with Mass Effect.

    Everything else related to gameplay, and cinematography though? Very poorly executed. There are a lot of bugs and technical issues. The dialogue wheels literally are "split second" choices, not even enough time to read what you are about to say.

    This feels like a game that shipped far too early. EA in its corporate greed and "infinite wisdom
    thought it would be better for their reputation to ship an unfinished game.

    A game created by EA and Bio ware with glitches, poor dialogue, poor graphic animations... beaten by a few poles making Witcher 3. First fourA game created by EA and Bio ware with glitches, poor dialogue, poor graphic animations... beaten by a few poles making Witcher 3. First four hours are boring and it becomes apparent that missions are repetitive. Very reminiscent of Dragon Age 2 with its 12 areas and 4 different mission types. For an Indie game it would be passable with good combat. Everything else is sub par. Expand

    Bunch of scammers, milking a franchise that is already dead. Worst faces ever, a game dead on arrival with little to no decent gameplay, worstBunch of scammers, milking a franchise that is already dead. Worst faces ever, a game dead on arrival with little to no decent gameplay, worst characters ever. Who cares about Mass Effect anymore? I never liked a single game of the trilogy, and this is the final nail in the coffin, Bioware stopped being decent after the failure of Dragon Age II. **** Bioware anyway, The female characters are way too ugly (looking like feminists) full of sjw propaganda, and the whole plot is a complete joke, they keep milking a franchi$e taking advantage of a very small fan base that will pay $70 hard earned dollars for this trash, hope this is the lat MAss Effect game ever made, I never cared about that franchise anyway.
