Mass Effect: Andromeda is a good game, but it’s one that shipped with almost innumerable problems, not least of which was wonky animations, dead eyes and plasticine faces. Those have been fixed - but not for pirates.
Mass Effect games may be sold on the idea of forging alliances and unleashing biotic barrages on your enemies, but it’s key selling point will always be the age-old industry standard: Sex. Lots of it in fact, as you’ll get plenty of time to create the beast with two backs from a wide selection of crewmates who are keen to bump genitals with you in a gross display of affection.
Mass Effect Andromeda is a fresh start – but in borrowing liberally from the first game, it’s made many of the same mistakes. In spite of them, it’s an exciting space adventure that delivers everything that’s become important to Mass Effect: Great characters, fun exploration, and a climactic tale of good vs evil.
