Not worth it, the reviews aren't good. I reckon the price will drop quickly on this.
cheaper on cdkeys with your 5% discount
Better hold out this will drop quickly

for ME it is bad score, check user score below 4.
ME 1+2+3 all had 90+.

And? This is a totally different story arc of the mass effect universe.
User reviews are often skewed by the hater sheep.

It's not a bad deal mate, it's one of the cheapest I've seen. Thing is though, as this didn't review as well as some hoped, it's likely the price will drop on Instant Gaming and CDKeys (Mafia 3, for example) so I think some people will hold out a bit. Objectively speaking it's a tad bit cheaper on CDKeys with the 5% discount code.

Keep looking though mate, if you get a great deal please post it and sit back and watch everyone argue about the review scores haha!

Let's not pretend that 78 is not a disappointing review-based score for such an anticipated game.

I'm still going to get it, but definitely waiting for a lower price.

​ME 3 had an ending so bad they were forced to change it.

78 a bad score for a triple A game now matter how you put it. I was excited for it too, but I will wait for Bioware to fix the bugs and awful animation.

Why is it?
I wish I played the first three Mass Effects now

Their budgets are massive, you're looking at £50m+. This took 5 years of development and the publishers tend to pull to strings to get more positive reviews, I'm sure the overall review score will drop, it's already at 75, not 78. 75 is a good score for a smaller games, games you have lower expectations from made by a much smaller team.

Taking the budget, time spent in development, the fact a huge developer is making this into midn, an average score is poor for a game you expect scores around 90 from. I will bet you anything Bioware were aiming for scores around 90 when they were making this. Which means something has gone very wrong in the development.

I did actually play it. It's all over the place, the story, the dialogue and the squadmates are bland at best.

They were great games, very well put together and balanced. You should get around to playing them if you can, they still hold up well. Well, not the first one, but the other two are still great.

It's bad for a Triple A title. Especially a Mass Effect title.
If you think otherwise compare the sales numbers in a few weeks.

Don't get me wrong I'm the biggest ME fan but Andromeda just isn't cut from the same cloth. Maybe it's down to all the original talent leaving the studio but its a Mass Effect game in name/assets only imo. None of the heart is there.

nope still 78.

Reviewers are far too generous with their scoring these days the only games that deserve above 90 are genre defining game changers.

It's rare you will find an unbiased Youtube reviewer these days as they are all in it for the view count and tailor their reviews to one extreme or the other.
As stated already price will crash sub £25 in a week or so.

Ah, I was looking at the PS4 score of the game.

I agree that the review system is flawed, but Mass Effect is being scored fairly I feel, it's a 7.5 to 8 depending on where the story goes. I only played 10 years and I couldn't help but feel disappointed throughout that time
