I played a few minutes of the 2nd one, but never got into it. Just got this and Dragon Age for $15. I found this video, but was hoping I could get a fan of this game to give me their take

Also, do these games have any missable items, like the Sword of Kings in Earthbound? I don't want to use a guide, but I also don't want to restart the game because I overlooked something.

The main missable things are some treasures in the various vaults you explore and specifically the chests locked by remnant codes.

The vaults tend to be one time excursions, so those are the main things you might want to look up, but none of the treasures are particularly amazing.

I'd strongly recommend getting the strike teams going ASAP. You can get really good treasures from them & the higher level you go, the better item rewards get.
Ok you didn’t like the second one which is the best one out the series and you decide to get the absolute worst one?!?!?!

f*** man.

I didn't dislike it, I started playing it right before I got an Xbox One and I just forgot about it until I made this topic. Evidentially I also owned Dragon Age before as I had a mage save on there from 2017, but at least I have all the DLC now.

I’d go back and play the original trilogy with the following DLC, minimally:

Mass Effect: Bring Down the Sky.
Mass Effect 2: Stolen Memory, Price of Revenge, Lair of the Shadow Broker, Arrival.
Mass Effect 3: From Ashes, Leviathan, Citadel, and the free “extended cut” ending.

A much better overall experience. Play each game in the original trilogy on the same platform so you can import your choices from game to game. That alone is amazing, even if choice impact is somewhat disappointing.

Andromeda isn’t an objectively bad game and each game in the original trilogy certainly has its flaws, but the original trilogy is leagues better than Andromeda in many, many regards.

Play the multiplayer!

You get items for SP, and it's good experimentation for what skills to commit to in the single player main game.

Is this a precursor to Apex Legends or is that just a coincidence?
Also can't get over all the responses, I expected to bump this once or twice before getting a response, thank you for the help so far!

you get SP items in MP? Is it still active? Can you play it offline with bots and get items?
There is no good. There is no evil. There just is.

Yeah, my Ryder was basically an arms merchant selling a dozen N7 Weapons to the Paradise.

It's still active but mostly I play with the Australian time-zone crowd. Not sure about the rest of the world. But I imagine so...

No bots. But you can try to solo the Apex missions (which gives the items) but it's hard to do Gold or Plat Apex (i.e. the ones your strike teams will fail...) without a team helping with Hacks and Upload objectives, unless it's a lucky day with none of that bs.

Anything you need to know? Yeah, don't get too attached to this game, and don't expect any DLC. Whiny, entitled a******s have effectively put paid to that.
