Genre: RPG

Description

Mass Effect: Andromeda is an RPG developed by Bioware Studios. It is an indirect continuation of the Mass Effect Trilogy, taking place in the Andromeda galaxy, featuring expedition of humans and other races of the Milky Way. Its purpose is to establish a new home and general exploration. You play as the Pathfinder Scott or Sarah Ryder, who has to lead this mission despite an alien race called Kett vying to stop him.

The gameplay is based on multiple large open world locations and choice-based storyline, where you often fight many types of enemies. It features an extensive skill tree and a number of playstyles, at least considering the combat. It also features a coop based multiplayer, where you defend a location with your teammates.

Recommendation

Mass Effect Andromeda was released to wide critical and fandom disappointment regarding the many bugs and animation issues the game had at launch. While there are still many people who loved the game's story and its characters, even those aspect weren't recieved with such a critical acclaim as those of its predecessors. The combat though is by many considered the best of the series. Many, but not all, technical issues of the game have been fixed at this point, with BioWare stating that it will not recieve any patches or content anymore. 

We recommend buying it if you aren't deterred by technical issues and want to enjoy a good RPG that is best played not being compared to the other entries in the series.

Key store recommendations

Key resellers are sites that sell game keys at (usually) much lower prices than traditional retailers. They do this through a combination of ways, like selling keys that come in a bundle, that were on a sale and many other ways.

The reason why we separated them from traditional retailers is that these stores have been the subject of a divisive discussion for a long time.

The reason we include them is that you can buy keys on these sites usually for very big discounts, sometimes quite ridiculously cheap. In 99 % of cases, they will work the same as a much more expensive key would. For many people, especially people from countries with lower standards of living, this can mean big savings that have a significant impact on their life, while also playing the game and not resorting to piracy.

If you are buying on these stores, we have a few recommendations to follow:

  1. Just know there is a tiny risk. Either your purchase will fail and you will use your money, or that the key you recieved won't work. It has never happened to us or anyone we know, but it has certainly happened to a number of people on the internet. That is partly the nature of the business, partly un-consumer business practices of some of the stores. In 99.9 % of cases, the purchase will be ok, but sometimes it won't.
  2. If the price is not cheaper on key stores (it almost always is, though), then we recommend to buy from the traditional, established retailers.
  3. If it is a store with multiple sellers with ratings, always pick the one with the highest number of sold keys and ratings. The probability of a successful purchase is much higher if buying from a reputable key seller.
