I'm only some 25 hours into the game, SP mostly, exploring every bit of of it, INSANITY difficulty. All my old ME3 friends are on Multiplayer climbing to the top of the chart as they used to in ME3. I'll get a late start into real MP obsession at some point but I am enjoying the SP so very much (INSANITY!!! it helps!)
I get all the negative reviews and I cannot really argue or disagree with them. They are all correct in their own perspective and I'd love to see the Bioware I knew back in Baldur's Gate days. But when I got my first outpost coming down from the sky after a hell of a work to get it done, it gave me some strong emotions. Good ones too. Like some I got from Gothic 2, The Witcher (all of them), Dragon Age Origins and the Mass Effect games (of course, the last 10 min of ME3 excluded). I am enjoying to play Andromeda like if it were one of those great games despite of its flaws. Maybe I got too soft while aging or maybe young people nowadays are too demanding. I followed pre-release Andromeda Initiative and signed up and watched it all. I was excited with it while waiting for the chance to play. Honestly, I am not even a bit frustrated. I wish I had a better rig for better FPS and graphics but I'm working on it soon. I am actually impressed that the game can be much better than so many b/s I've played throughout the years and it's not different of what was presented in the pre-release vids and cinematics. I am loving my pathfinder and all she is doing in game. The companions are cool too. The only thing that makes me sad about it is that Bioware is no CDPR and there will be no Enhanced Edition or a super mega hiper patch for free, fixing most of the flaws. But that's only my guessing. Who knows what they have learned watching CDPR going from a small Warsaw studio to one of the most brilliant game developers. I still pray that EA gets their dirty hands far away from those Polish guys. The rest, I can live with. Combat is cool! INSANITY!!!
