Andromeda review: This is Dragon Age: Inquisition in space

Mass Effect Andromeda Crafting

No Animation Fixes Will Be Included in the Day 1 Patch of Mass Effect: Andromeda

Mass Effect Andromeda will be released on March 21st for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

If you own an Nvidia GPU and plan to play Mass Effect: Andromeda tomorrow, you might want to update your driver. Anyway, we're live streaming some of the game today, whizzing around the sandy planet of Eos, putting things right.

There's nothing I've found that redeems its crappy writing, threadbare companions, moribund story, and ghastly UI.

This is logic I could understand, on some level, maybe five years ago.

Bioware has just dropped a PC patch for Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Mass Effect Andromeda will have multiplayer missions that tie into the single player campaign - but unlike Mass Effect 3 this will NOT be mandatory.

Ars Technica delivered an early review after 30 hours with the game, characterising it as "Dragon Age: Inquisition in space". Note that because how GMG is sourcing this release, you won't be able to get the game until its release on March 23 (the European release time).

"Perfect", I thought. "This will give me at least six days to play".

I look back on my stupid optimism with chagrin.

The animator, Allie Rose-Marie Leost, came under fire for her role in the game's development over the past day. You've got your standard pair of human starting partners, like "I'm really not mad at you, I promise" Cora Harper and "I keep forgetting where I left my shirt" Liam Costa, a grizzled old krogan, a very business-first turian, and an asari Zooey Deschanel.
