Stop making excuses, guys
The original managed 91% on Metaceitic despite a couple of negative reviews like Edge'shttp://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-360/mass-effect
Andromeda has negative reviews throughout. Don't even try to compare this train wreck o the original
I'm not making excuses at all, as I haven't played the thing and am it judging it yet. Merely finding it ridiculous how desperate you are to attack a title that scores 75%, and which you haven't played yet. That's a 16% difference between something you laud as brilliant and "a train wreck".
Or that one game in a series scoring 9/10 and the next a 7.5/10 is somehow an drop in quality unprecedented in modern video gaming.
As Daz said, most people who have played it seem to think it's, at the very least, good.
I'm not even trying to defend Andromeda, as I haven't played it myself yet, more this internet culture you're peddling where you are determined to lambast a title you also haven't played yet, because it's scoring a more-than-respectable 75%. You don't seem particularly open to discussing the game itself, so I would argue your mind has already been made up by the percentage points dished out by others.
I'm not comparing it to the original either, as I've currently only played one of the titles I'd be comparing. The original was a flawed title back in 2007, in my eyes. It was also inferior to KOTO, which must have come out in 2003/2004. Such a drop in quality from Bioware, unprecedented in modern video gaming...
