    Ugh, sli bug? That’s not good. I’m runing the game in 4k and will not be able to do with one card. I never had this problem on any battlefield games, played them all minus BF1. Will give it a try. There’s some major issues with this game.

    Got around to playing this weekend. I discovered the texture / shadow bug must have been tied to the global ambient occlusion and transparency aa turned on in nvcp. Since I disabled them, I haven’t seen the bug for a couple hours of game play. Fingers crossed.

    For me the biggest let down was that the game was just oozing potential around every corner. However they never capitalized on it.

    So many opportunities for side quests with deep story telling, not to mention how early on the villain seemed intriguing, which completely fell apart halfway through the game. The game died with it's lack of depth in story and the lack of depth in environments. The open world, while open, is bland. The older ME games offered some freedom, but environments were much more strict, yet rich with life, side quests and story telling.

    It feels like empty MMO. Swtor im comparison has much better story content and quality. Ironically it's an MMO.

    A lot of the technical bugs have been fixed, the shooting gameplay is pretty fun. for me the story and characters were just awful so I never finished it xD

    Thanks. It looks like a game i would love to play. Everything about the game has recieved such negativity that i have held off. I think it it's pretty cheap now, so i might just grab it anyway.

    It's ok. The really big problems arent things that are fixable without a rewrite/remake as the story, characters writting and direction are mostly irredemable. The memeable moments with the animations were more or less patched out (mostly they just cut out the animation parts that looked ridiculous, a case of less is more you could say). The game-play is solid enough however, and if you can looks past poor quests and all, you can get a bit of entertainment out of it. If you can handle all the subpart aspects for the above average gameplay moments for around 50 to 90hours, sure it's worth picking it up. The game is still being picked up on mostly due to context. Big studio/big marketing title managing so little along with the bugs and animations brings in a lot of attention.

    ac origins or odessey would serve you better in either case other than they lack the space vibe.

    either way now obsidian, bethesda, star citizen, beyond good and evil, doesnt SE have a new space game in the works? if you like space scifi rpgs just hold out a bit longer on that front.

    I just finished playing Odessey and it was by far my favorite Assassins Creed game.

    played a third of the game while i had origin access , the shooting and driving are solid. A.I is sometimes glitchy.
    The thing is , as @KissSh0t said , story and characters are boring and uninsteresting. to me at least !

    just boycott EA it makes these decisions easy ;p.

    Right now the in thing is space and scifi stuff, in the next 5 to 10 years there are going to be reams of space, cyberpunk, and general scifi themed games. battletech and mechwarrior back? star citizen, elite dangerous, mass effect, kerbals, cyberpunk 2077, and others scifi is here and growing.

    Lot of those old nerds and geeks are in their 40s and 50s now they have money and a some time and they liked star wars, buck rogers, flash gordon, battlestar galactica, star trek, and the dozens and dozens of knock offs. They are a growing demographic over the old guard 40 and 50 year olds that really did not give a toss about gaming in large numbers other than solitare and poker maybe.

    Quite funny how Ubisoft utterly annihilated BioWare... I didn't see that coming but just shows that others can do the same stuff just fine, better.

    yea ubi went full rpg with the last two ass creeds more jrpg than wrpg, funnily enough something i argue bethesda should give a try since they want to anyway, just hire some top notch writers if you go that route.

    You know what, i had 7$ to spend and bought the game lol. Watched this video from @lucidus last night and convinced me to give it another shot.
    For 7$ i can hardly be disappointed lol.

    Also i did remember the maps were looking nice so...

    The world looks really beautiful, but it's just an empty sandbox. For 10€ it's probably worth it, for the combat alone, but the story is boring and predictable and characters are complete retards as they often behave irrationally. They have zero charisma and there are plenty of awkward dialogues with them, that lead to nothing. Dialogues in itself have a conversation wheel, but it only creates an illusion of choice as most of the answers are completely different than what you thought they would be and they also lead to similar conclusions. Ultimately none of your choices really matter even inside the quest itself, let alone in the game. As many have said, AC is probably a better game than this, but if you really have this sci-fi urge and don't mind supporting the terrible practices of EA, then you wouldn't regret spending 10€ they're asking.

    Andromeda on trailers \ E3 before it came out looked good to me. was very happy
    with what i saw before it came out. even the first 1-2 hours on my first run were ok..
    until i realized its empty, no heart\soul, uninteresting, and idiotic written game.

    looking back at it - i wouldn't pay 1$ to play it, as a Mass Effect game.

    and since i payed a full price back than, every future BioWare\EA game is on my black list, sale list, "reading 50,000 reviews before
    i touch it list" - you name it.

    That`s my policy about all new games now. And do not touch new (purchased) game for 3-4 months.
