Mass Effect Andromeda Review
Mass effect Andromeda is the latest game in the mass effect franchise. This game aims to set up the franchise into a new story line after finishing the previous trilogy in the last game.
How long will it last you?
Mass effect Andromeda is a well fleshed out game with story-lines and side missions to engulf you in this universe. It should keep you happy for around 60 hrs if you complete the main mission.
Hows the story?
The story is reasonable with a few twists and turns along the way, the writing fails to reach the dizzy heights of the previous games but is passable none the less as you attempt to settle a new part of the galaxy and fight off various foes. The games ability to draw you in to your shipmates is where mass effect as always excelled with the ability to romance and do loyalty missions to unlock extra skills for your unlikely bunch of protagonists.
Hows the game-play?
Combat is solid and will give you hours of fun. Where the game is let down is how unpolished it is. Environments pop in detail erratically, facial animations look weird although much better after the last patch and sometimes glaring error occur where you fall through the map. This unpolished stops the game getting a top recommendation and it feels like it should have been given another 6 months development time.
Should I buy it?
We give this a “try it” rating – The game is solid but glaring errors and a story that doesn’t quite satisfy means we cant give it top marks, if its in a sale its worth a play through and gives you a great 60 hrs for your money but at full price doesn’t quite make it a must have.
Buy it – Buy this now
Try it – It may be for you but its not amazing.
Goodbye it – Don’t bother
