In defense of Mass Effect: Andromeda

It is an action role-playingvideo game developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft WindowsPlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Released worldwide in March 2017, it is the fourth major entry in the Mass Effect series and the first since Mass Effect 3 (2012). The game begins within the Milky Way Galaxy during the 22nd century, where humanity is planning to populate new home worlds in the Andromeda Galaxy as part of a strategy called the Andromeda Initiative. The player assumes the role of either Scott or Sara Ryder, an inexperienced military recruit who joins the Initiative and wakes up in Andromeda following a 634-year journey. Events transpire that result in Ryder becoming humanity’s Pathfinder, tasked with finding a new home world for humanity while also dealing with an antagonistic alien race, the Kett, and uncovering the secrets of a mysterious synthetic race, the Remnant.

BioWare Executive Producer Mark Darrah wrote that he believes Andromeda suffered somewhat from releasing in the midst of a crowded schedule. Nier: Automata, Nioh, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild all released mere weeks before BioWare’s sci-fi RPG. Darrah sees this as a “crowded” release environment, noting he believes each one of those games “does something better” than Andromeda, which he admitted to be a “flawed game.”
