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.
Contrary to what you may have read or YouTubed, the dialog, voice acting, character development, and AI are just fine in ME Andromeda. Those features are consistent with the ME trilogy (which I played dozens of times).
Indeed, the human facial expressions were so bad they were painful to watch. But that was improved with the v1.05 patch and most of the game is spent looking at the back of Ryder's helmet during combat anyway.
I do have issues with customizing your character's appearance at the start of the game. All of your baseline choices look like they're straight out of the food court at the mall, so no matter how you try to alter your appearance, you still look like a Bozo.
The absolute deal-breaker is the bugs, glitches, and game freezes. Quests you spend hours on can't be completed because of some programming error (dozens of reports on Reddit indicate that these are real issues). One out of five times I go to debrief my away-teams the game freezes and I have to close the app and restart -- which causes me to lose my AVP rewards because I "left the game." The list goes on and on.
I can live with a little corny humor or weird faces because the gameplay and scenery are quite good in this release. I can't live with the quests that can't be completed, game freezes, and one bug after another.
This will be at least a four-star game when they patch the most serious bugs. I suspect that when they drop the first DLC some of the glitches will be cleared. Wait until then to see if the user experience has improved and then buy this game.
If you absolutely need your next dose of Mass Effect, you'll find a lot to like as long as you can cope with the fact that this isn't a continuation of the old games. If you can't or don't want to get over that you're going to have a tough time overlooking the flaws.
