I'm still not far. I'm just doing Turian/Krogan stuff at the moment.
Things I like about the game:
- The setting, characters and dialogue. These are among the best I've seen in Sci-Fi for any medium, not just a game. The Normandy is so detailed and fun to explore. I loved how in Engineering I heard the "squeak" and saw my space hamster scurrying around until I caught him.
- At least for the ones I've met so far, I like how they've given some of the ME2 characters their moments. The evolution of one in particular on the ship with the students was nice to see. I also like that they aren't all options to be teammates. I prefer the smaller core cast.
- Variety of settings. The missions themselves are very linear for the most part but I like not having to go to "generic cave/compound" most of the time.
- The combat is much MUCH better than ME2. I'm playing it on the "Hardcore" difficulty and I love how I have to think a bit now. You have enemies that will try to flank you occasionally, you MUST keep an eye out for grenades and it's incredibly hard to get by just with weapons. You need to use your biotic and tech skills effectively.
Things that could be better:
- Obtaining side quests merely through eavesdropping on conversations? Meh. Seems kinda lazy and detached.
- There is a bit of a lack of urgency to the quest at the moment at least. Earth is getting hammered hard while I'm flying around systems scanning planets for war assets. I can't really see how this could have been done differently though. You can't put a time limit in an RPG. It does take away a bit of the immersion though.
