Reviews and first impressions are simply ways for consumers and fans to set a standard for a particular game they want to buy. A lot is riding on Mass Effect: Andromeda simply because it's the latest installment of the franchise everyone has come to love. Sometimes, whether or not a game is worth the price can only be affirmed when they played the game and Mass Effect: Andromeda is surely no exception. Here are things to know before buying Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Things To Know Before Buying Mass Effect: Andromeda

Mass Effect: Andromeda is BioWare's latest game of the beloved Mass Effect franchise and although it is the fourth game of the series, its narrative is far from the original trilogy. Mass Effect: Andromeda is set 600 years later. In addition, none of the endings in Mass Effect 3 is canon so regardless of the player's decisions in the previous game, Mass Effect: Andromeda is unaffected.

Mass Effect: Andromeda takes place in a new galaxy and is considered by BioWare as a soft reboot of sort. New galaxy, characters, premise and gameplay but with some borrowed aspects from the previous games. As much as some players love to have as much borrowed aspects from the previous games, Mass Effect: Andromeda will not have returning characters.

Although Mass Effect: Andromeda offers free-form exploration, the game is not really an open-world RPG. BioWare explained that the game will have open world elements and sections but not the vast freedom of an open world. Loyalty missions will make a comeback in Mass Effect: Andromeda and it's not Mass Effect if there is no romance involved. So expect a lot of emotional and physical conquests in the game.

Don't Pre-Judge Mass Effect: Andromeda

Although many have negative first impressions due to ugly animation, facial expressions and bad writing, about their first playthrough of the game the rest of the game as well as the environment is something to behold. And according to producer Michael Gamble, the game gets better as the players immerse themselves in the world of Mass Effect: Andromeda. So it's important to keep an open mind when delving into the game and judge the game as the player go.
