Mass Effect: Andromeda
Review by VideoGameBroadcasts.com team member:
I am a long-time fan of the Mass Effect series. I have spent countless hours playing through all 3 previous games and after such an anti-climactic ending to the series in Mass Effect 3, I was very excited when Mass Effect: Andromeda was announced. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this game. The attention to detail that Bioware puts into not only the Mass Effect series, but all of their games, is astonishing. The game puts you in the shoes of a man- or woman depending on your choice of character- who is tasked with finding a new planet suitable to sustain human life. As with all games in this series, there are a group of aliens who are hellbent on stopping you at every turn, and so begins an epic rpg journey through this foreign galaxy. The thing that impresses me most about this game is how expansive it can be. There are a number of different planets that you can explore and many different missions that are available on each planet. The only complaint I have with this game is the occasional glitch here and there, but all-in-all I would recommend this game to veteran and amateur rpg players alike. Heartland, the game's vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience." The original RDR spanned from 1911-1915, and during this period modern civilization was beginning to creep up on the old ways of the west, whether it was talk about Flying Machines or early Automobiles rolling along the streets of Blackwater. Based on the footage in the trailer, it looks like this world could be a prequel to the original as it shows old streets with old stores and a passing horse drawn carriage. These shots suggest the game takes place before 1911. If RDR2 is a prequel, that means a young John Marston would be featured. That would be good news to gamers who were disappointed at the end of the original when they had to finish the game as Marston's son Jack. I expect another hit by Rockstar games as the game is set to be released in the Fall of 2017 for PS4, XBOX ONE and PC.
