Business Insider - The first new "Mass Effect" game in years is finally here. I've got some bad news: It's not a very good game.
This article is full of Spoilers. Screw you author.
Articles with spoilers should be marked as such by the submitter, if no spoiler warning is given by the author of the article.. I am glad I didn't click this shit. I'm sorry if you were interested in the game, though. Also, thanks for the headsup. Heh.
Yea I preordered. Waiting to play it in 2 hrs.
Nah I think it's 1>4>2>3.
Yeah, d move.
Thanks for saving me from the spoilers, got it preordered :)
Funny I love the trilogy also, and two hours in I'm enjoying Andromeda. People. Forget how many issues ONE had, I remember buying it for Xbox 360 on release and never beating it because of the controls being so hideous. I later beat it when it was released on ps3. Point is all these crying articles about how bad the game is conveniently forget the issues one had. If everyone went into mass effect one with the attitude they are for Andromeda, we would have never had a trilogy.
We forget how the games actually were because we are comparing this to Horizon and Zelda now! The bar was set very high so ALL flaw will be noticed! Not that I want to but every review I have read has ignores the final act of the game, whether it was good or whatever, not spoilers obviously.
Exactly, what was acceptable in Mass Effect 10 years ago its not acceptable now, the game will be compared to whats on the market in 2017 and what has been released in the past few years, not every game can be as good as the witcher 3, but in many ways this Mass effect is worse than even Dragon Age Inquisition, which was Bioware last game.
Bud, no flaw was noticed in Zelda, in fact reviewer turned a blind eye on its flaws!!!
Zelda? You mean the game that has terrible framerate in the majority of the characters don't even speak you just read texts? For god sakes breath of the wild literally looks like a GameCube game.... Zelda has been given an extremely huge pass it's not even funny
You are literally the first person I heard say something so logical. I love mass effect beat it and by it I mean the trilogy multiple times. Jumped in on 2 because I had ps3 but I replayed all of them on PC a few months back and the only good one gameplay wise us 3. The first 2 are clunky as all hell and I guess none of these people played them because they were buggy. It seems people are just ready to hate this game. I'm getting it no matter what.
To be fair, two hours it not much to go on.
I think you also forget when ONE came out there were no third person shooters of that kind. Gameplay-wise Gears of war was revolutionary, but its effects didn't kick in till a couple of years later, which meant that every TPS up until 2007 was shit in terms of gameplay. Mass effect's gameplay issues were far overshadowed by it's amazing storytelling. The graphics were top notch at the time, and the depth of the story along with the choice system is what made it stand out among other games. I haven't played Andromeda yet but I plan on getting it, so I won't comment on whether it's good or bad, but my attitude isn't the same as Mass effect ONE because that game appeared super innovative to me at the time.
Cause ME 1 had issues doesnt excuse ME 4 from having them, they went backwards in quality.
I just beat the first one again... I actually enjoyed it more this time around. Even the combat was enjoyable. The game as a whole holds up extremely well.
It certainly does, more than people give it credit for I think. I also like it as it feels distinctive, even next to the other games in the series.
I loved the first two hours, then the game opened up and became DA:I in space and lost me.
I've been playing it and it's nowhere near as bad as DA:I that's hyperbole. The side quest so far are way better than the mmo fetch quest bullshit DA gave us
For me I don't care about the facial animations, I mean they are jarring and pull you out of the immersion. The main thing that makes me not like this game is the cringy dialogue, it's like the programmers have never interacted with another human being. No one talks they way they do in this mass effect. I played the trial and the dialogue, story and lack of rpg elements are why I'm not getting it.
EA, where IPs go to die.
Companies... EA kills whole companies.
It seems they may have to make some extra space in that mass grave.
If you have to preface your argument with a label attached to yourself so as to authenticate the validity of the argument you're about to make, you have already invalidated it.
This is why people believe in flat earth and creationism.
The book of Genesis is the foundation for the big bang theory. Evolution is a religion.
No, it isn't.
@Nu Please be joking. Please. I can't handle any more stupidity today.
And where did you copy and paste that from?
If someone feels they have knowledge in an area, and wants to state that, I would like them to state it. Always. so I know what I am dealing with when I have a discussion with them. And you can then potentially use that as a weakness and really push their credentials. It's absurd to say they have invalidated their argument over something so trivial. It makes it seems like you don't have an argument yourself. And maybe watch some flat earther videos. They all dismiss people who label themselves as 'scientists' in the exact same way you just described with your comment. And nu, Evolution is science. Science is not a religion. Period. No one worships evolution. You just want to believe they do so you can say absurd things like 'evolution is a religion'. Oh yes, I will just pop over to the church of Evolution and pray to the effigy of Darwin.
Good for you.
The last good titles I bought from Bioware were Mass Effect 2 and DA:O - Awakening. That was back in 2010. Everything after that has been disappointment after disappointment. DA II, SWTOR, ME 3, Inquisition... now Andromeda. I think this company is "dead."
Could not agree more, well said.
I saw flashes of good stuff in ME3 (the whole of Mordin's involvement, Cerberus storming the Citadel), but for the most part, yeah. It has been sad to see Bioware's decline. I can't believe it has been 17 years since Baldur's Gate 2. With all the talk of the animations in ME:A, I want to hold Dragon Age Origins up as a game that at the time looked dated, but made up for it with an excellent story, great combat, and excellent characters. Things that have been sorely lacking in their recent games.
This game is a massive let down.
I will say that the low expectations are wonderful because other than the weird eyes, this has been fine so far. The game is stunning in 4k and combat and then open environments are much better than before. Unfortunately I believe they reached frame rate by downgrading the skin textures and eyes in general. But so far, seems great to me. Sad that they couldn't fully finish or.optimize it but I can't blame EA after 5 yrs for releasing the game.
