And in English?
Essentially whats available is it. They won't be producing additional content or patches and due to poor performance at retail due to the bugs etc any sequels are also on hold

Enjoyable albeit incomplete story that will not be finished due to poor sales.

They had originally planned DLC (much like Trespasser for Dragon Age Inquisition) that would tie up loose ends but it was canned due to poor sales/reviews.

Is it worth buying?
I enjoyed the combat of ME:A but the storyline was awful, didn't engage me at all. Such a disappointing end to an otherwise amazing series. The only way EA/Bioware can potentially renew interest in this series is to do a ME1-3 remaster on PS4 and Xbox One, and remind players how great it used to be, and that it can be that again one day...
Hell, with Casey Hudson back at the helm at Bioware (he was the lead director for ME 1-3), they are in a great position to repair the damage they had done to themselves
Well still not worth it even if they gave it free in PSPlus

If the journey is more important than the destination for you and you enjoyed the previous games in the series (because despite the reviews it hits all the nostalgia notes). 100%.

It’s just a little bit frustrating that some questions will probably never be answered...

I bought this in a recent PSN Sale, yet to play it myself but from what I’ve read about the content and scale of the game it seems worthy of purchase at this price regardless of the lack of any DLC

My face is too tired for this deal. Have some heat anyway.

Personally, and sadly, I'd say no. I liked ME1 but thought it could be a better game with some changes, LOVED ME2, thought ME3 was ok but a bit of a damp squib and this...I gave up playing after a few hours. It's just not a very good RPG. I didn't like the action (which felt very amped up over previous games) and the story held little interest due to poor writing and little atmosphere. Or maybe I was just spoilt by The Witcher 3.
This game isn't as bad as everyone makes out! Everyone likes to jump on the bandwagon. Definitely worth it at this price.
Blimey, I haven't heard anyone call it an NTSC version in a very long time.
Well worth a tenner
Definitely not worth a tenner I wouldn’t pay any more than £5 for this and even then it isn’t a particularly exciting instalment of the ME series.

Take that tenner, go to G2A or another site and see all the great games you can pick up for a smidgem of the price.

Yeah, I came here to comment on that as well. It's really outdated terminology, and in fact isn't really something that exists anymore now that everything uses digital video and HD standards. Saying that a game is the 'NTSC' version might just confuse people.

So, to clarify - PAL and NTSC are analogue TV standards - different methods of encoding video for broadcasting television. They were different in terms of how many lines they used (analogue equivalent of resolution) and their frames per second. Different countries used different standards (e.g. UK used PAL, USA used NTSC), and obviously analogue TVs had to match the standard of the broadcast signal in the country they were sold in, so you got PAL TVs in the UK and NTSC TVs in the USA. When games consoles came along, they too used analogue signals, and so you would get PAL or NTSC consoles depending on which country you were in.

But everything is digital these days and so the PAL and NTSC standards are no longer used. We don't have 625 lines and 25fps, or 525 lines and 29.97fps, anymore - we have 1920x1080 and 60fps (although other frame and refresh rates are part of the HDTV standard too). Digital TVs can have analogue tuners capable of receiving NTSC and PAL signals, but they will be converted to digital before they are displayed. Certainly as far as modern games consoles are concerned there is no such thing as PAL and NTSC anymore because they aren't capable of analogue output - the PS4 certainly isn't.

So it used to be that a game sold in the USA would be an NTSC version because that's the TV standard they used. You could try playing a PAL game on an NTSC console or vice versa and either it wouldn't work at all due to region locking (which is a whole different thing done for different reasons) or it would work but the picture would be messed up somehow (I remember importing NTSC PSX games, using a cheat cartridge to bypass the region lock, but then they were stretched and in black and white if I used an RGB cable - buying a scart cable meant I could see them in colour, but still stretched).

But now that we all use the same digital TV standards, that's not an issue - and region locking isn't as common either. So this isn't the NTSC version, it's just the American version. The only difference is the ratings board they use, so you get an ESRB age rating on there instead of PEGI.
