Something tells me that the things that made Mass Effect trilogy great (including that sweet 1980's moog soundtrack) will be gone in the upcoming Andromeda. The characters all seem to be....well.... kinda underwhelming. -_-

I decided to give it a miss, since it's being made mostly by the Bioware b-team, and I just don't have the confidence that it'll be able to live up to the original trilogy. That and the ending of ME3 burned my pretty badly, so the times when I would have given them the benefit of the doubt are unfortunately long over at this point. But hopefully you'll enjoy it!

I probably made a mistake, getting it for PS4. At least it will be once I see a good Mod

I just want to save the galaxy :) But before I'll buy it I will look into gameplays if there is any trouble with bugs and crashes.
For me the Andromeda looks some kind of refreshing to the triology. Like Startrek were. It was also with new people and younger ones.

As far as game play goes everything seems to be alright. :)

I've been playing it for a bit (thank you EA Access) and I gotta say, I'm loving it, and I played the crap out of the original trilogy when each of those came out. Sure this one uses the Dragon Age Inquisition engine and uses much the same mechanics as were in that title, but I have spent most of the 6+ hours I have played in a combination of nostalgia for how the original game felt the first time I played it and excitement for the new direction the story can go. Yes, some character animations are a bit off-putting, (there's a little shrug that characters do at what I assume is the reset of their idle animation that looks like it pops their shoulders and hips out of joint for a second.) But, give it a crack when it comes out proper, there's plenty to love!

No worries, I could barely drag myself away to sleep last night, I'm loving the game so much!

Huge ME fan and I've been playing the trial and overall I quite enjoy it.

It has issues, yes. But I think the pros outweight the cons. The story is interesting, the game looks amazing and the gameplay is super fun. Some character animations look horrid, some look decent. The galaxy map is gorgeous but its slow to move around in it. I'm quite liking the characters too so far

It is out...... kinda. Game reviewers are given pre-released copies of the game.

It does feel like "The Internet" has an axe to grind for this game. Like, valid criticisms getting lost in the noise of people ripping apart every detail and Meme-ing as hard as they can.
At least that's how it feels to me, someone who foolishly broke my pre-order rule and put money down sight unseen based on personal hype. ^^;

Haha. Expectations have been lowered!
That said, all those gifs being getting passed around are actually piquing my interest. If it truly is a cavalcade of absurd facial animations and poor mo-cap, it might be weirdly charming. ;P

I've seen a handful of them too. But I hope there will be a patch to rectify those problems.

So far, they have been. The early access was a great experience for me. Though the human face animations was kinda awkward. but thats about it.

I see. But seeing that the early access is more of a preview, I hope that the facial animations are fixed with the release copies. Bioware did mention that they will fix this problem some months ago. :

The hope is still there, but it won't be as compelling as it once was when I first played Mass effect 1.
