Mass Effect: Andromeda takes players to the Andromeda galaxy, far beyond the Milky Way. There, players will lead our fight for a new home in hostile territory as the Pathfinder-a leader of military-trained explorers.

I've played all of the Mass Effect series, and had high hopes for this one.
This one is tangentially related to the previous ME games, so your choices in previous games don't really affect the storyline.
The game gives you a lot to do, in several open worlds. Each world isn't necessarily very large, but put together, it's a very large playable area. If you're a completionist, you'll like this game (except for the bug that crashes the game on multiple platforms when you enter a certain area).
I have the graphics settings set to Automatic. The graphics are pretty good, but I get a lot of weird artifacts in various areas.
One of the major complaints with this game are the character faces. The female main character is downright goofy looking. You have options during character creation, but none of them are really very good. The Asari NPCs are also pretty goofy looking, especially compared to the Asari characters in the three previous ME games. Apparently they did this on purpose, something to do with unrealistic female body images. It's a game people. They certainly didn't make the male main characters purposefully goofy looking.
The voice acting in this game is also subpar from previous games in the series. Maybe they were trying to save some money, who knows.
This game also suffers from the same things many other games do. Weapons are really no different from modern weapons. You have the same weapon classifications as today: Pistol, Assault Rifle, SMG, Shotgun, and Sniper Rifle. Such things display a serious lack of vision. You'd think that in the future, one weapon would serve any small arms role.
They also show serious lack of vision with other technologies in the game. For example: The main character has an AI implant which can communicate with the character over light years of open space, instantly. Yet if you want to read your email you have to go to a few specific terminals. Really? I can get my email wherever I am, on my phone. Hello!?
This game also suffers from a major, IMHO, issue where all the female characters walk just like the male characters. It's not as bad in Andromeda as it was in all three of the first ones, but you'd think they could figure this out after 3 tries. My guess is that they just couldn't be bothered to do a different walk animation for female characters. Lazy.
I usually play a game through several times over a couple years. But I just don't know if I'll want to play this one again. Maybe the multiplayer is better, haven't tried it yet.
I wouldn't buy this game unless you can get it for $20 or less.
This game is not them.
I experienced multiple gamebreaking bugs within the first 5 hours of singleplayer and haven't touched it since.
Multiplayer was ruined the second EA added p2w lootboxes. Thanks to a bloated manifest, maxing your manifest without paying real money takes about 600-700 hours. Lootbox RNG combined with a lot of hackers and some broken mechanics means this game is a no go.
Oh, and don't forget that Bioware/EA dropped further bug fixing and development/DLC as soon as they realized sales weren't meeting their expectations to go work on bigger projects meaning Mass Effect Andromeda is essentially abadonware only a few months after release.
The story itself, while lacking the depth of any of the first 3, is, at least for now, still interesting enough to keep me playing. The premise is a bit overdone, but so far I'm enjoying it. The endless fetch quests don't bother me either, I like seeing the finer details of the story, and I enjoy the banter between squadmates in the Nomad.
What I am having a hard time coping with is the horrible design and programming choices. I can count on characters disappearing, freezing in place, falling off the map, and simply "acting weird" every single time I start the game up. This is not an exaggeration, it happens every. single. time. Missions sometimes won't complete or load objectives, at seemingly random times Ryder recites lines from long-ago completed missions, and all too often the game thinks I'm still in combat when every single enemy in the room is defeated. Might be related to the bug that causes an enemy to appear in your radar but be nowhere to be found. Mind you, I've installed two patches already, and I'm still dealing with this many issues. It honestly feels like they rushed out a beta version of this game, and the plan all along was to finish the game post-release.
I'm going to finish this game simply because I already purchased it. If you haven't...don't. Give it a few months and see if EA/Bioware can fix this mess they've put out. I want to play through it again, to see what the other gendered Ryder brings to the narrative, but I'm very hesitant to do so unless they can bring this game up to standard. I'm still giving this 3 stars because according to Amazon, that's the difference between "I's okay" and "I don't like it." I DO still like it, I'm just disappointing that the development of this game was phoned in.
I'm glad they're shelving the franchise for a while. This isn't Bioware's best work, and I hope they take these criticisms seriously and make the next installment as good as the first 3.
