Just finished, some real annoying back and forth to locations trying to get a few bits done. I thought the last quarter was a lot better then the first 75% it was still ridiculous in premise and could have done with some better story structuring but ultimately it's mass effect. It reminds me a lot of Mass Effect 1, a bit marmite for most you'll either love it or hate it. I found myself in the second half running through everything as I just had no interest in anything going on it was a bit boring.

Gonna try and trade this towards persona or yakuza 0. Any takers?

I'm near the end of the game now, had a prompt I was going to be entering the final mission, so polishing off the side quests now.
The amount of back and forth just to talk to people is quite frankly unforgivable. I spend longer in load screens going from A to B than I spend actually at my destination before I have to go to C through yet more load screens.

It's a major blemish on what has been an otherwise very enjoyable game.

I do miss the Paragon/Renegade system though it has to be said.

Ive still got this to start.

Any tips regarding skill choices / quest choices / point of no return choices?

If you want to get the platinum there is some fairly missable stuff you'd need a guide on. I wasn't going for a plat, by the time I had a proper look at the trophies I had gone too far.

Depends what you want out of the game to be honest, none of the choice I made seem to have made a lasting impression on the galaxy.

Then more worlds become available that you can scan, scan them, go finish off the sidequest, then everyone and their mother wants to give you a new side task... Or talk, I did feel overwhelmed by the sidequests in this

I wouldn't mind if there weren't so many loading screens to go through just to go from one planet to another. You've got a loading screen to fast travel back to the Tempest, another loading screen to take off, then you have to re-open the Galaxy map, a loading screen to transition to the other system, a loading sequence to zoom in on whatever planet you're going to, another loading screen to land and then another loading screen to fast travel to wherever the nearest travel point is to your objective. If you're going to the Nexus or Kandara then you've also got another loading screen for the tram/lift.

Given the MP a go. I'm enjoying it, basically a copy of ME3 but faster paced due to jump jets. However like ME3 at launch it's pretty bare bones, I'm hoping for more maps and character classes. Maps in particular. There are only 5 and I played one 4 times in a row, remnant enemies each time. Yet to face the Kett faction. They really should randomise better.
