Yeah I understand what the intention was. I guess it's just that if they were to call it GOTY it would be a tad disingenuous

its not. it was actually a great game. but this whole fiasco has unfortunately taken a nice steamy shit all over the experience.

if you can get it for a decent price, it is more than worth a look. i experienced none of this crazy cutscene low frame madness or other stuff, most bugs and errors i had were the common ones with this release. game as a whole looks and plays amazing, but to assume we will just carry on its legacy in books and comics, eh. so disappointing. im buying the current comic line, it hasnt finished yet but is only a 4-part arc that is a prequel to Andromeda anyway.

Now I feel put off from buying Anthem actually. I think it went to shit when they moved to frostbite cos they can't seem to work well with that engine.

Frostbite worked well

The writing, characters and story are what pulled Andromeda down from a great game to mediocre one.

bioware can't even iron out the bugs in the game while DICE (while they built the engine) know how to get it to work and smoothly.

frostbite aside, you don't agree with the rest of my post?

because I can tell you right now that frostbite gave me personally no issues I couldn't live with - what I couldn't live with was everything else. Poor characters, writing and overall story.

I'm quite iffy on the story but I could live with an iffy story if it wasn't suffering from fps drops in cutscenes - that really took me out of the story.

But now it's uninstalled and relegated to the gaming scrap heap, never to be played again.
