    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.

TheA game that is once again hit with the bandwagon of people who hate on a game because everyone else is. COD suffered from this last year. The game is truly mesmerising and outstanding.

    Mass Effect: Andromeda i sa good game. Its not the Megablockbuster some people got hyped for, but its not as bad as stated by the people onMass Effect: Andromeda i sa good game. Its not the Megablockbuster some people got hyped for, but its not as bad as stated by the people on the hate train. If you liked the older ME games, you will like this one too. Similar gameplay, good graphics, nice sound, so far nice story. I didnt see any bugs so far (5h gameplay). Yes, the face animations are bad, sometimes, and the possibilities in the character creator are not as much as in other games. If you run downstairs, the running animation gets weird. But often does this happen ? And do you really care ? 99% of the game are executed well, and i wont bash this game because of some small optical problems you got for some seconds in your playtime. I think its a solid 8/10. Expand

    I preordered this game a long time before release because obviously i thought it would be like the ME Trilogy, but i was wrong. Despite all ofI preordered this game a long time before release because obviously i thought it would be like the ME Trilogy, but i was wrong. Despite all of the bugs, glitches and animations, the story was so bland, the characters were forgettable and only the combat was good, maybe the best in a ME game, but that doesn't do much when you have so many negative points.

    Buying it used for 20$ last week , finished it on 83% around 44 hour gameplay.
    Dont waste your money for this game, at least not for a full price. This game only worth 20$ at max.

    So buy it used or wait for the price drop. I dont need to write what is good or bad about this game , its already have been known.

    So the verdict is , Decent combat/gameplay , and other aspect (crafting ,UI,story,graphic,etc) is just mediocre or bad.

    Можно побегать до релиза какой-нибудь другой игры получше. Неплохие виды (и в космосе и на планетах). Сиськи
    Плюсы:

    Можно побегать до релиза какой-нибудь другой игры получше.
    Неплохие виды (и в космосе и на планетах).
    Сиськи (подозреваю что это единственное на что вообще были потрачены хоть какие-то деньги и время).

    Минусы:
    1000 и 1 задание про сканирование (и вообще очень много тупейшего гринда).
    Сюжет расчитанный на младший школьный возраст.
    Невероятно отвратительная реализация анимаций.
    Десятки критических багов.

    Почему сделали фигово они, а стыдно за игру мне?

    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.
