Is anyone else completely put off buying this purely because of the facial animations?

I'm too used to games like Uncharted 4, Last of Us and LA Noire to cope with these, they're just jarring.

"It's a mess" as one of the options there.

Personally it wouldn't bother me as with all RPGs I'll just put subtitles on and skip all the dialogue scenes.

Animations do look odd, but would they put me off playing the game? Not in the least.

Up to the first main planet during the trial and so far I've seen no animation problems apart from that assault rifle being invisible in someone's arms during a cutscene. What I've played so far I've really enjoyed and love being back in the ME universe.

It's a shame that the appetite for being negative about stuff on the internet seems to have taken over the launch of the game. Exaggeration has kicked in and, judging by all the memes, gifs and outrage, you'd think that Andromeda was one of the worst-looking games ever made! Views vary but, personally, a few derpy animations wouldn't put me off from playing it.

Considering the amount of abuse this woman has received, the response from Bioware is strawberry floating pathetic. She's being abused by hundreds of gamerate types, and the best they can come up with is "wait guys, she wasn't actually the Lead, so ease off yeah?"

Shameful.

Its not just a few off animations though. The facial animation looks exactly the same as it did 10 years ago.

Considering the amount of time the game spends pointed at someone's face it's pretty appalling.

Horizon has just as much dialogue and the facial animations are a ton better.

The message I have been getting is that the game is kind of a mixed bag. Visually the environments are impressive, some of the animation quality is ropey but this various between characters and between scenes. Nothing particularly deal breaking for me so far even though I am kind of disappointed. I will not make any final judgement on whether to buy or not until I see the full reviews.

Oh, the manbabies need to strawberry float the strawberry float off. Even if she was the lead, which she isn't, and even if the game was totally awful, which it doesn't seem to be, it's still just a videogame. Even if this was the worst game in the world ever made and she personally insulted your actual mother it still doesn't justify those kinds of threats. Some people need to get lives and realise what's genuinely important in this world.

Is it decent? I tend to like the same sort of games you do Garly?

Yeah it is, simply put if you like the previous Mass Effect games then you'll like this one. Crazy how much hate it's garnered. I most certainly didn't play the previous games for top notch animations and facial features :slol:

Loved them, the graphics and animations in the first 3 were all janky so whats the issue here? As long as Ive got the dialogue options, some fun battles and a decent story, i'll be happy.

The issue here is the first game came out 10 years ago.

But it's not an issue as I've said so in previous posts. I've played and loved the ME games purely for the Space Opera, not the animations. Don't get me wrong, there shouldn't be gooseberry fool like backwards facing guns firing and gooseberry fool like that should definitely be fixed as soon as.

Reached the end of the trial and gutted I now need to wait to carry on :x

That's your personal opinion.

People expecting animations to have improved after 10 years, in a character driven game where you spend 50% of the time talking to people isn't unreasonable.

I think you need to go back and have another look at the original.
