But, I will say this, EA really went out on a limb with this game and the TEN HOUR trial this past weekend and that really takes some guts. It really showed (most of) us that the game is not good, but hey they let us try it early. I know that betas are a thing and this felt like a beta but supposedly it's the full game. It's impressive they believed in the game that much.
"Mass Effect Andromeda is a fresh start but in borrowing liberally from the first game its made many of the same mistakes. In spite of them, its an exciting space adventure that delivers everything thats become important to Mass Effect: Great characters, fun exploration and a climactic tale of good vs evil."
For many the issue is. nothing magically changes later. It just continues on at that level or higher through the entire game. Coupled with extraordinary bad writing...uhg. But each to their own man. If folks love it awesome.
