As someone who has played and enjoyed all three previous Mass Effect games as well as Dragon Age: Origins and Inquisition, I have to say that Bioware is really the only developer I've found creating games like this—with an emphasis on story, choice, and relationships. It's those core values that always keep me coming back, and in that regard, I was not disappointed by this game. Bioware has made some mistakes in the past (including aspects of Dragon Age II, which I have yet to finish, and the ending of Mass Effect 3), but as always, they are eager to hear constructive criticism, fix what is fixable, and learn from each and every game they create.
I am definitely hoping we see more adventures in Andromeda, both in the form of DLC (assuming they do something substantial, like Trespasser for Inquisition or Awakening for Origins) and sequels. I just hope that those of us who have honestly enjoyed this game aren't drowned out by all those who are jumping on the hate bandwagon. Don't get me wrong, there are some legitimate criticisms that can be made about this game—but, at least in my opinion, it seems like many people hate this game simply because it's a popular game to hate.
If you are anything like me and have enjoyed previous Bioware games, it's worth giving this one a fair shot.
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.
The game is not perfect. Sometimes there's too much dialog to wade through and sometimes there's frame drops and freezing (Playing on a PS4 Pro), but none of those things have ruined the experience for me.
Overall, I'm very happy with this game and look forward to playing it each night.
