Mass Effect: Andromeda held a lot of promise for the series. Taking the action to a whole new galaxy, there were endless possibilities. What we ended up with was a passable main quest, a forgettable new enemy, some enjoyable but not standout characters, and the same quality gameplay we’ve come to expect from the series. It’s got some big problems, but I still put well over 30 hours into it without ever getting truly bored. There’s plenty to explore and discover, it’s just not all as interesting as what you might expect.
This is a series that has always been good at getting under your skin, that has built its reputation on the moments when all of those disparate elements, good and bad, cohere into an adventure that feels like it's happening to you. Andromeda can still do that. It's not perfect. It's not consistent. But for a story about vast journeys and fresh starts, it also feels a little like coming home.
Unfortunately, Mass Effect: Andromeda is a frustrating mess of bad design decisions, bugs, glitches, and narrative missteps. It could have been so much more, but it ends up falling flat on its face. While there are things to enjoy about it, they're few and far between -- your time is much better served replaying the original trilogy or exploring the widely available mods out there. You'll end up being much more fulfilled and feeling as though you've used your time in a productive manner.
