Just finished the main story.  I was a bit underwhelmed.

 

Honestly, I can't really explain what it is.  But the first ME felt ... epic.  Flaws and all, it felt like you were part of a fun space opera saga.  This one just felt off.

 

Fun enough, but I can see why it scored relatively low in the reviews.

So if you write a fanfic about the game you get the game as a reward? :blink:

The story might have been more interesting if they'd used some of the fanfic instead of what they went with.  :shifty:

Ryder tracking him with his eyes at least works

Worst visual glitch I've had was Habitat 7 & the Scourge not appearing on screen in the opening making it so the Captain, Alec Ryder, Cora and the PC were all talking in front of a black screen.

Worst bug I had was during one leg of Jaal's quest where the game hard crashed to desktop and when I rebooted and reloaded I somehow loaded into an area that was created for a specific cut scene and wasn't meant to be playable or accessed by any other means besides activating the cut scene. I had to fast travel out and from then on the performance on my PC tanked.

Worst regular bug I've encountered is the one that makes autosave files not load. I suspect this might be related to overlapping autosave triggers (I also experienced all three of the last autosaves being for the exact same "moment")

 

Did have a few other errors - one point the game did put the characters offscreen (but showed it anyhow) in the lead up to a Tempest Landing cutscene (but thankfully loaded the cutscene and then loaded the characters back into the environment properly). And at least once on Kadara after starting the outpost, the oupost didn't load so people were sitting in the air for a minutes until the buildings exteriors/layers finally popped in.

 

Biggest quest related bug I've had is one triggering the completion dialogue before I'd completed the quest making the quest uncompletable.

Yeah, SAM constantly telling me I had new email and finding out I had none made me want to deactivate him permanently (yeah yeah, kill me too, semantics).
