Mass Effect Andromeda had a bit of a rocky launch, but now Bioware invites gamers to try it for free.
Should of been released before the game launched
nonsense then the game would of bombed
Didn't it bomb anyways?
1 million units in it's first week is hardly bombing. It sold less than its predecessors, but made more than enough money.
yea but it sold well because of the brand name power of mass effect. if they release another mass effect people will be more cautious
I'm not going to be more cautious, the game was freaking amazing and I'm looking forward to the sequel. A bunch of people with their panties in a twist because a few characters have wonky facial animations did not affect my opinion of the game. I just don't get all the criticisms. People just went nuts over little stuff and hated on a perfectly good game. I loved the story, loved the characters, and it felt just like a new Mass Effect should feel, getting to know all these great crewmates and forming bonds with them along the way. Seriously, one of my favorite games of recent years. Don't believe the hate if you haven't played it yourself.
Yes, but at least it's getting a demo at all.
Is it worth giving it a go? I was excited for this until it came to light how shoddy it was. I still kinda want to give it a shot if it got fixed to enough of a degree, but has it really?
Try it, it is free... I have the full game. Although it isn't as good as the trilogy, I am enjoying myself
Come on y is it not? Cuz it's the first game of a series well was gonna be? Mass effect 1 u didn't know the crew was all new..this is exactly what I had in mind for next Gen mass effect
Yes it's worth it
I bought it 3 or 4 weeks ago for $30. No issues at all. Very good game.
For 30$, you juat said it. 60$ Hella no
"No issues at all"...you haven't played it at all
Summons75, don't talk shit. Of course I have played it. Why would I be talking about this game if I hadn't played it? When was the last time you played it? Cuz there have a ton of patches since it launched.
I played it right after it got it's first patch and I never encountered a single crash or glitch that I can remember. Played it start to finish twice. No issues. Oh wait, I take that back, one time I couldn't get a door to open on my ship, but I reloaded and then it was fine. That was once, in 150 or more hours. Don't believe the bullmess about this game being full of glitches, it is not. I was on Xbox One, FYI.
So... It's not really Bioware, its mostly EA for forcing it.
I don't really know how to answer that to be honest. I'm so busy with work that I just don't really have the time. I never got to complete breath of the Wild, I've yet to finish Yakuza 0, heck I've yet to even start Nier. Because everything has been hectic in regards to business I just haven't got the time and I thought had I had completed some of the games I purchased earlier this year I would have some time from Mass Effect. I personally can't justify purchasing it right now with so many other games unfinished, but almost everyone on my friends list has recommended it and has told me it's actually still a very solid game. I mean look at it this way if you buy it used for twenty bucks what's really the harm?
I am on my second playthrough. The game is very good. Play the demo and see what you think.
People seem to think the game play is alright. Most of the criticisms are from the animations and lack of depth to the characters. The actual game play seemed to get much less notice in the media and forums.
I finally finished it in 70hours. The game is infuriatingly stretched thin. It's a collection fest. Go there and grab that. Load times are insane and quests are on different planets making iit longer to finish. Characters are not that interesting either but that is subjective. I feel that this game doesn't deserve any attention given to it but it is still a mass effect and it's the only one we'll get. Buy this used and marked down. Coz paying full price for this thing is insane.
I have read that complaint before about quests making you hop around to different planets but I don't remember that ever being an issue. I know it happens, but I'm the type to go to a location and do multiple different things there, then go to the next location and do the same. I won't focus on one single side quest all the way to completion, jumping around to multiple locations in the process. If you play like that I could see where it would be annoying. I'm like that in any game. "While I'm in the area, I'll do the next step of this quest as well...." My girlfriend sometimes is more OCD and has to stick with one quest until it is finished, but I'm slowly bringing her around by playing ESO together and jumping from quest to quest based on where we are. :)
I bought it [pre-ordered], haven't played it yet other than creating my character. I was waiting until they updated the create a character with a more robust system. It seems they've done this, so I may finally start working on completing it. All the powers seems like they were ported from ME3 multiplayer. No that means no soldier bullet time[unless this has changed since launch].
It's a good enough game. I'm glad i got it anyway. It doesn't have to be Mass Effect 1, 2 or 3 to be worth buying.
The demo says 43GB's I would rather just buy the game since it's $29.99 on PSN as of now.
The demo is 40 gigs... What are they nuts
It is not a demo. Its a free trail.
The intro was too boring and bring nothing new to the ME Universe. Mass Effect Trilogy intro is better. I decided to drop the game because I don't like both gameplay and plot. I am hoping Mass Effect 4 or reboot happen with the main Bioware studio.
It took me a little bit of time to get into it, but once I landed on Eos and spent a little bit of time there I have been hooked ever since. I just don't think the game deserves the hate it has received. If you have tried the game out and don't like it fine, but what irks me is when people say, OMG this game is trash or this is crap, etc. and haven't even played a single minute of it. Go try it before you hate on it. You might end up liking it.. or not.
You know most people talking shit haven't played or are mad that they bought he game at launch and it was filled with bugs. That's why I never preorder. Lesson learned I hope.
The hate was overblown. Happens all the time on the internet. It wasn't fair, but most intelligent people learn to look past the hyperbole whether positive or negative and judge things for themselves. The game did have some issues, but it isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be. At least in my opinion. I enjoyed it.
Rather large demo
I'm waiting for it to be in a humble bundle, or one of their free giveaway games on origin. haha
Hopefully it becomes part of the PS+ monthly games in the future
Game was amazing
Countdown to being a ea access vault title is on
It's still worth playing if you enjoy these types of games. Only punishing yourself listening to people who refused to play and watched a YouTube video of mistakes.
