Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro It's an exciting new take on an epic franchise
Mass Effect has always been an outstanding franchise with groundbreaking gameplay.
Pro Exploration is quite fun
Nearly every planet in Andromeda is unique from the others. There's different terrain and environments to check out, new hazards to watch out for, and a plethora of missions to complete on every planet.
Pro Combat is very fast paced
The combat in previous entries of Mass Effect has been based on getting behind cover and having good aim. That aspect still exists in Andromeda, but thanks to the new jump jet, things are much faster and much more fun. The jump jet allows you to vault over obstacles or make quick dashes while running, which lets you flank, charge, and generally just outmaneuver enemies in many more interesting ways.
Pro Great character customization
There's a wide array of options for you to customize your character with. Additionally, if you're not happy with the pre-set options, you can choose to create your character nearly from scratch.
Pro You can change the way your character works on the fly
In Mass Effect Andromeda, the class system is incredibly open, and classes can be swapped at any time, even in the middle of combat. Essentially, you can go from being a battle-hardened front line soldier to a crafty engineer, or even to an infiltrator that's capable of invisibility. This will also swap out your abilities, which makes sure you're always prepared for the next challenge you have to face.
Pro Career mode has been re-added
F1 2015 was lacking any kind of meaningful career mode, and F1 2016 decided that was a bad thing, thank goodness.
The career mode of F1 2016 adds a huge amount of content and immersion to an already great game. It also adds a great deal of context to the game, you'll learn plenty about drivers throughout the course of facing off against them.
Pro Really puts you in the shoes of a Formula 1 driver
The game leaves a lot of decisions up to the player: do you pit now and lose a couple of spots, but guarantee yourself a decent finish? Or do you risk it all and go for number one?
The game is satisfyingly stressful, and will put your decision-making skills to the test.
Con Random lag spikes
Mass Effect Andromeda is prone to ridiculous lag at random times, regardless of what's going on.
Con Sub-par storytelling
It's got a few great moments with moral grey areas, but the storytelling is overall lacking and doesn't immerse you in the game very well. It feels like the writing was rushed (or done by completely different teams with different visions for the game), and that can be rather irritating.
