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.

1) The repetition is awful--as in MMO awful. You do the same thing over and over on each planet without much change from one to the next.
2) None of your choices have far-reaching consequence. Or any consequence. At worst you'll get a snarky email and that's the last you hear of it.
3) The characters are awful. Each one has a single gimmick and no other facet to their personality. I stopped talking to Cora altogether just so I didn't have to hear about the Asari Commandos for the 385432467 time, and Vetra's concern for her sister was borderline obsessive. Even Ryder has 1 of 4 personalities that you can broadcast, and they never change.
4) Almost all weapon and armor progress is gated by Research Points, of which there are never enough--especially if you want Milky Way weapons (which everybody does because they're the best and have 3x the catalog of the Heleus/ Remnant sects). You can't test the weapons unless you buy or find one either, so you don't know what you're investing your points into until it's too late.
As a whole, the game isn't bad per se. But it's missing most of what made the Mass Effect trilogy good. This title felt like a long grind riddled with random sudokus and stale dialogue.
Only about 10 hours in the game right now but can't put down the controller. The side stories are great and there's a lot of content in this game to keep you busy. I purchased this game on the $20 sale and it's worth it.
Mass Effect Andromeda is the newest and possibly the last installment of the Mass Effect series as we know it. It is sad yet it is entirely understandable. When it first released at the end of March, it was in a state of glitches galore, awkward facial and body animations, and game breaking bugs. The people (the internet) let an outcry of hate and dissatisfaction to the company that let out such a mess for a full price. This outcry was very much justified, and it led to Bioware creating patches and fixing the game big time. I believe its too late for the Mass Effect series, but even so, this isn't a horrible game now that it's been updated. It's not the best game but it's game play is fluid and maybe the best in the series. The story is mediocre at best but it has a few redeeming moments and characters. You play as the "Pathfinder" which is the emptiest title ever in gaming. You get a small squad of only 6 teammates, and only 3 of them are actually interesting.
5 and 2/3 of a Squad:
There's Drack the 1000 year old Krogan who has cross eyes (Intentional or not I don't know) and is a caring grandpa. Vetra the bad-ass Turian who has a really endearing way about her. Jaal the very nice tempered new alien (an Angara). Three well voiced characters with decent development. The other three are Liam Kosta, a guy who was a cop, and is kind of lame, PeeBee an Asari tech type chick who has troubles with an x and is bland at best, and Cora a human who was an Asari battlemaster and is probably the worst out of the 6. Emotionless, boring, and literally contributes nothing to the entire game.
Romance thumbs down:
The romance system I'd say is the WORST in the entire history of Bioware games. You can get locked in relationships and realize it too late, unlike in the original trilogy you could break up with characters to pursue another.
Open World is Tedious and Repetitive:
You have to travel a lot in this game, the loading and forced scenes of moving to another planet could turn this into a drag if you don't have the patience. There are plenty of pointless missions to that just feel like filler more than anything. There was so much that should have been taken out or reduced that would have helped this game more.
Total Time Played:
It took me 63 hours to finish the main story, side quest and 100% planet exploration. It's not as big as everyone says, the worlds and levels are actually quite small especially if you compare it to other games like Dragon Age:Inquisition which was large and massive at scale.
Andromeda is NOT a bad game. It’s just not the same style nor on the same level as the Shepherd trilogy. This is game about primarily exploration and colonization but not in the sense of a game such as Civilization or Endless Space. It is still very much an action game (and a good one at that). The characters and stories don’t hit the same heights as Mass Effect 2, but that is a very high bar.
I had played the trial the week before the game was released. I went in knowing all the crap that this game was getting. I will not ‘rave’ about this game, but it is not the garbage that everyone says it is.
