Not true.....Gameinformer is in the middle of their review now. They've been playing since Monday night and are waiting to publish it after they've played 2 and 3 some more, says they already finished 1. Sounds pretty positive so far!
The only issue I've had with save games doing this is that you get the ultimate edition of the game with Pro so if you buy a lesser version then the save game may not carry over. Since this game doesn't have different versions that shouldn't be an issue.
Eventually most Pro games do come to the Basic service but not sure how long that usually takes.
I don't plan to play through it multiple times right away so no real reason to purchase it at full price and as a bonus get to try Biomutant as well.
My only gripe so far is the change of subtitle text. I really loved the original curved letter style of Mass Effect 1 (which they scrapped in 2 and 3) and now it's gone from ME1, too. I guess it might be for accessibility reasons to have text in a clearer typeface.
