Found my first broken side quest yesterday, despite downloading the patch (waypoint marker directs you to a non-existent NPC to talk to). Still, I've put 46 hours into this thing so far, so I seem to be having better luck than most people!

The one thing I don't care much for in this game is the terr-forming, particularly the vault sections. They remind me of the Oblivion sections in (erm) Oblivion: cookie cutter environments that are tedious to navigate and just boring as hell to get through.

As a massive Mass Effect fan I was completely put off by all the negative reviews. As it happened I was on honeymoon when it came out so didn't buy it on release. As I sat on a beach in Bali I read all the negative reviews in horror.....I honestly couldn't believe it could be that bad. I've waited till the mega patch was released and took the plunge last weekend and bought it.....So is it really as bad as the rest and certain reviews made out? Well no, it isn't. In fact it's pretty damn fabulous in most areas. I'm only 35 hours in but just like all the other mass effect games it's sucked me in completely. I haven't had a single broken quest or seen any weird physics. HOWEVER!

How in gods name have they ****** up so badly on the cut scenes? I honestly cannot fathom how they've allowed such shoddy animation. I thought when people were saying it's worse than ME1 they were exaggerating.....Jesus Christ they aren't! Every charachter has pores that a sandworm could crawl in and even with the patch the eyes are all over the place. Not to mention the ****** lip syncing. For something that has always been essential to mass effect games i'm thoroughly disappointed.

I'm loving the actual game and if you can ignore the crappy animation the story seems pretty good so far. I just hope in it's sequels they learn their lesson.

I think it'll easily slide into my top 5 of the year. I hope we get some beefy DLC for it soon.

Quarian Ark DLC would be good. It makes no sense that the Quarians (who have a rite of passage centred around exploration) don't have an ark, but the Krogans (warrior race who don't always play nice with others and have troubled history with the Salarians) do.

My Latest bug is Sara Ryder's Hair in conversations, It's not being rendered correctly on my GTX 1070 with latest driver, the ends of her hair are diffused and tessellated to the point of clipping into nothing. I'll grab a screenshot or vid capture if I remember...

I have to say, the absolutely brilliant star wars reference in Liams quest is my favourite thing in this game by a mile so far, in fact liams quest as a whole is great.

I'm loving this game. I really am, I just wish they'd got the graphics a bit better. To be honest though? it's still in my top 10 games ever.

I really need to stop completing EVERY single side-mission & going through EVERY conversation as I just checked yesterday & it claims I've been playing this for 35hrs & I'm only 25% Complete!!!

However, the quality of side-missions are so random, you worry that you might miss a good one as occasionally they are as fun as the main missions.

I also need to stop spending ages searching for every available container as I now have a silly amount of guns/armour which completely removes the need to do the research/development as any time I do craft my own item, I'm guaranteed to find it within an hour or so in a random container!

Currently I'd still say it's the poorest of the series but there's enough quality to make it addictive & hard to leave...

I'm the same. I'm up to 40 hours and just started Kadara. Eos, Havarl and Voeld are all 100% viabillity.
