Mass Effect 2 is one of the best games ever.
But as 2017 rages on with one hit after another, I’m not sure BioWare’s sci-fi epic would hang anymore. And that’s a problem for the studio’s Mass Effect: Andromeda, the latest entry in the series out March 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, because it is no Mass Effect 2. What you’ll like Fun combat Andromeda takes Mass Effect and its conceits to a new galaxy. You leave Commander Shepherd, the hero who ended the last trilogy as a mythological savior (and a band of hot aliens) behind in the Milky Way. After 600 years of travel in cryostasis, your character — you choose either the male or female Ryder — wakes up … and it’s immediately time to shoot some new aliens. The combat is where Andromeda shines. As in the earlier Mass Effects, you are a mix of super-soldier and quasi-Jedi who can rush into just about any situation, smash numerous enemies, and survive.
