Mass Effect 1 is still my all time numero uno number one favourite game.
Andromeda, whilst not reaching the lofty standards set, was still 100 hours of banging good fun in the ME settings.
So yeah - gimme! GIMME ALL THE EFFECTED MASS!
^This. The original game is one of the all time classic titles. Open exploration, aliens, guns, sweet next gen tech, and "space magic" Ezo.
Andromeda for all its flaws has the best combat flow of all the ME titles. The game play is excellent in combat, allowing extremely fluid action across terrain and objects. The story is terrible however and filled with gaping plot holes everywhere and zero internal logic or consistency.
Kinda miffed this one is not set in Andromeda. It really needs a second iteration with a much better storyline for the franchise as a whole. While I will definately be taking a look at ME5, falling back on "shepard" again is rather trite.
