Gotten maybe 8 or 10 hours in.

And, yeah, it's a mixed bag. The dialogue is substandard. Maybe not straight up when compared to the previous games (the dialogue was good by video game standards, not necessarily good in a broader sense), but feels like a lot of forced banter.

And flirt options show up in the first conversations with many characters . . . which leads me to believe they put way too much time into that aspect of the game. Which yeah, feeds into the bits of fanfictiony feel to things sometimes. Too much unearned camaraderie bullshit early on. Bioware is maybe too responsive to fans. Less indulgence would give the game a better shot at being great.

It is a lot of fun if you're into the exploration aspects of the game though. And you can definitely see Inquisition's influence.

I don't think the game will make a Mass Effect fan out of anyone whose first game is Andromeda.

Agreed. I'm enjoying it well enough, but there are a lot of misses that should have been easy wins. This will ultimately be pretty forgettable is my guess.
