Mass Effect: Andromeda Microreview – 18/20!

Mass Effect: Andromeda is an action role-playing video game developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts.

The player assumes the role of a male or female Ryder twin, a relatively inexperienced military recruit who joins the Andromeda Initiative and wakes up in the Andromeda universe after a 600-year journey. Shortly after waking, Ryder is thrust into the role of humanity’s Pathfinder, whose job is to find a suitable living environment, but also finds himself or herself dealing with an antagonistic alien race called the Kett.

If they wanted separation from the original series, they achieved it. This game has the general feel of a Mass Effect game, but with a greater focus on exploration and discovery. Overall I enjoyed this game, but I was disappointed in the lack of closure in several plot points and how unpolished the game was upon release. I’m excited to see what the future of this series holds and hope that they really focus on ironing out the technical details before delivering.

Mass Effect Microreview – 20/20!

The first Mass Effect set the stage and established a time and place. The player discovers the galaxy; learning its planets, races and cultures. The Reaper conflict is introduced and we see Shepard facing Sovereign, a vanguard Reaper who plans to usher in the Reaper fleet to continue its mysterious cycle of destruction.

This has to be one of my favorite science fiction video games to date! I am very fond of Roleplaying games such as this that shape your character(s) through your dialogue and actions. In regards to combat, I would highly recommend finding a class that suits your play-style or you may get frustrated and unable to progress easily. Probably the most tedious aspect of this game is driving around planets in search of resources or anomalies, but I didn’t feel it was tedious enough to drop the score!
