First for the things I liked about the game. I really enjoyed the main plot. It really picks up when you reach where Meridian used to be. The squadmate interactions were fantastic, and they're a few cutscenes focusing on the squadmates improving their relationships, including a hilarious scene between Jaal and Liam. Also, the combat is pretty good. I think ME2 has had the best gameplay out off all the games, but the gameplay in this game is on par with ME3. Another thing I liked about the game was the visuals of the planets. They are absolutely beautiful at times, particularly Havarl, as well as Meridian. They're are also some beautiful cutscenes, and some amazing scenes of space battles.
Now, for the things I didn't like about the game. First is the technical issues. I saw a lot of reports of bad animations, and I didn't really have that problem, they were there, but not as bad as I had heard. I did have problems with other bugs, including one that completely erased my save data with the exception of my multiplayer data. I also had extreme frame rate issues, especially towards the end of the game. Sometimes things did not load correctly, including characters that would talk while they were inside walls or furniture. I also had a bug where my trophies wouldn't pop after I completed them. I looked up if others had this problem and I found where people were saying you need to be connected to the internet to have the trophies pop, but I had an internet connection where I completed story missions and I didn't get the trophies to pop.
Something else I didn't care for was the squadmates themselves. While their banter was fantastic, they were poorly written and I couldn't become invested in them as I did in the previous games. The loyalty missions for the characters I did like, and to me they were the only good side quests in the game. If you've played Dragon Age Inquisition the side quests in MEA are designed almost identically. I mentioned the worlds are nice to look at, but they are filled with boring things to do.
What I disliked the most about the game was the remnant vaults and the glyph puzzles. The glyph puzzles are basically Sudoku puzzles, and I found them more tedious and frustrating that fun. The remnant vaults were supposed to have good loot if you solved the hidden puzzles within them, but the loot I got made me angry for spending extra time trying to figure out the puzzles.
Right now I would only recommend this game for die hard fans, and before this game I was. If their is another ME game I will be more cautious about getting it. For anyone else I would wait until a major price drop, or even wait and see if their is going to be some kind of ultimate edition with all the DLC.
This game LACKS that. But let me start with the pros:
-Environments are beautiful and unique
-New alien species adds variety and lore
-Gameplay is FUN, combat is GREAT and much more fluid than the original series. Mass Effect 1 probably had the worst combat, and it improved throughout each of the games
-RPG elements from the first Mass Effect were brought back and improved upon, with a sleek new UI
-Pretty good character customization (ABILITIES, the character models are horrible)
-There's a lot to do, a whole bunch of quests with a bit more depth than "go here and kill this"
Unfortunately that's pretty much it for pros. Now for the cons:
-Humans are hideous
-NPC facial expressions are nonexistent and it breaks immersion. That's how bad it is
-Some of the voice acting is... like did high schoolers do this?
-The main story isn't that interesting to me. Some might like it, but compared to reapers wiping out all organic life, this didn't seem that appealing
-My crew is so boring
-Romance options are pretty limited and terrible (mainly because of the ugly character models), but also because the characters are just too... I dunno. I don't like my crew. They don't get along and there's not much reason behind WHY they don't get along.
-Not that many planets. I know I stated the worlds are diverse and unique, but there are like six planets to explore... Mass Effect 1 had more planets than this.
-Why do the aliens from a different galaxy speak English perfectly. I mean the Kett don't, but the other races you meet do and it bothers me that it's not really explained. They at least should have a strong accent like Javik (Prothean) did
-Limited to one cluster in the entire galaxy
-Multiplayer is boring
-Those stupid missions where you deploy troops and it takes like 5 hours of real time to complete
You'll play as Ryder, a Pathfinder in the Andromeda Galaxy, who embarks on a quest to make inhospitable planets habitable for yourself and your Milky Way brothers and sisters. Combat mechanics are very smooth throughout, and I enjoyed being able to tweak my selected powers depending on each individual combat situation. RPG elements are still very much alive here, and like past Mass Effect games you'll spend hours conversing with your crew mates and alien species you encounter along the way as the story unfolds. If you were a fan of the original trilogy, don't pass this exciting adventure up!
