LOTS OF MID GAME SPOILERS

Posting this because I haven't seen any in-depth analysis of Andromeda as a whole posted yet. This video is almost 2 hrs long. If you remove the opening and the settings part of the video it's about 90 minutes. This video has a lot of critical parts but it's largely positive.

He does a deep dive on the following parts of the game. I added a few quotes for those not interested in a 90 minute video.

The Galaxy Map
General Game Structure
Quest System
Quality of Writing and Dialogue
Gameplay Systems
Combat
Crafting
Environmental Graphics
User Interface

https://youtu.be/lptcmV6k_u4?t=1h42m until the end he gives his final thoughts.

But essentially he thinks most of the game is strong. Specifically, the characters, Ryder, story, dialogue, gameplay systems tied into story, environments, combat, weapon customization, the variety of skills etc etc are all strong. He has many criticisms as well like bugs, animation issues, and UI design.
