    Finally picked this game up ($39.99 at Best Buy). I am admittedly terrible at character facial creation but the system in MEA is pretty lackluster. No matter what I do my guy looks vaguely Asian.

    So the graphics and animations on this game are absolute dog shit. However I love Mass Effect and am enjoying the game.

    What is the best team combo? Currently running Drack and Cora and don't love it.

    Kinda depends on what you're bringing to the table to complement your team choices

    I'm an infiltrator, bought myself a really nice sniper rifle. Use assault rifle when people get close

    Gotcha, I also ran infiltrator set up. I usually had Cora, in part because she was bae, and either Peebee or Jaal. Drack seemed clunky, I found Liam hella annoying so I never brought him, and Vetra I was indifferent.

    I'll try Jaal, I agree about Drack just being clunky which is weird because Wrex and Grunt fucking owned in the first trilogy.

    This game is a lot of fun, really like the story so far. Some of these additional tasks are boring as hell though.

    I enjoyed it. I'm not claiming it was a perfect game, but it kept me intrigued and the gameplay felt good. They fixed a ton of the problems and I'm sure I would've felt differently if I'd bought on day 1. But I didn't.

    I will say that it is inexcusable that they plugged some half-ass story arcs in with the thought that they'd reveal them in DLC singleplayer and now here we are. We get that content in graphic novel form instead. :meh:

    I'll give it to the fans of this franchise. They fucking stuck it to Bioware and EA after they butchered the ending to the trilogy. Nothing they could've done short of hiring Drew Karpyshyn to come in and heavily edit a re-release of 3 would fix what they did.

    I've done Eos, Voled, and Harval and am enjoying the game. The graphics are bad but the story is fun and I'm a fan of the series. As said above, its not a perfect game, but its fun.
