I have seen the reviews for this game.. GameSpot gave it a 6/10? The reviews are typically saying the same things despite varying scores.
I found this review to be the best one- not because I agree with him (I haven't even pre-ordered the game), but because he seems to be the most objective, fair, and open reviewer to what Bioware is trying to do.
I just posted that link on another site (great minds think alike lol).
I'm only about 12 hours in, but I think that review is one of the most accurate that I've seen. It's honest about the games flaws, but doesn't verge into hyperbole (ZOMG the faces- preorder cancelled!!)
That was a damn fine review. Very balanced, as you said.
"What I can say, though, is that this is a good game. This is a BioWare space RPG. This is a Mass Effect game, in character and execution as well as in name. If you’re a Mass Effect fan—the kind who created a custom Shepard and imported a single save game all the way through the original trilogy and has fierce feelings about the proper romance choices for Shepard—then you’ll want to buy Andromeda, because even though it won’t give you any more Shepard, it will give you more Mass Effect (and there are some hints and voice logs from familiar original trilogy faces to be found—if you look for them)."
I own both consoles. I don't care about your console wars idiocy.
