Next time it pops up on the Xbox store for 6 quid I think I'll actually buy it.

There's currently an EA sale on Xbox so picked up ME Andromeda and Dragon Age Inquisition plus all dlc for a few quid. Nice :)

Cool. Like I said, the story ain't up to much so try to look past that, the gunplay and exploration is pretty great if you invest the time getting some skills, abilities etc. And don't forget to use the jetpack in combat, that's one of the best bits :)

Honestly I think this is now when even the die hard fans have to be thinking of not touching another game from them till it's been out for 6 months minimum and on sale.

Very true, Battlefield V has only recently gotten to the state it should have been released at.

Personally I had fun with Andromeda, the main issues were the story and antagonists, both of which were forgettable at best. But as noted in the article, the combat and exploration were excellent, in many ways the best of the franchise. Like the article notes, Andromeda is probably the worst ME game, but that's like being the worst athlete at the Olympics.
It was actually my favourite game of the series in terms of enjoyment. The story wasn't as tight and the character dialogue wasn't as consistent, but the gameplay itself was better than ME1-ME3 for me.

Difficult to know how to judge which is best in a series like this. If I favoured story/characters over gameplay I'd probably say either ME1 (story) or ME2(characters) was the best game. But I was always a gameplay-first kinda guy so I guess it makes sense ME:A was my favourite.
