In spite of exclusionary marketing, a rocky start with dead eyes and bad animation, and areas that definitely need to be refined, I thoroughly enjoyed my first playthrough of Andromeda. I'm eagerly awaiting DLC, and I will definitely be doing more playthroughs.

Compared to a few other games:

- It feels less polished than Inquisition, but it's a lot more fun. I've decided: Andromeda > Inquisition. (And this is coming from someone who generally likes Dragon Age more than Mass Effect.)
- Similarly, although ME1 is a tighter experience, Andromeda is a lot more fun.
- ME2 is better, but ME2 in terms of story and gameplay balance is a damn near perfect game, in my opinion. The loyalty quests in Andromeda seem to take cue from ME2, which was a good call.
- I like it about the same as ME3, but I think it has more replay value because ME3 hurts my heart and I felt lighter finishing Andromeda.
