    This was probably the best review I've seen of the game, and now I feel like I know what I'm getting myself into. Sadly, this is the one series where I'll buy it no matter what the reviews say. But when Persona 5 drops I'll be playing that primarily.

    There just isn't anyone else doing a space opera RPG of this scale, hopefully someone will step up to give Bioware some competition in this genre.

    Just want to say thanks for not pulling any punches with this review. Just because it doesn't tow the line with what other reviewers are saying doesn't mean it isn't valid. I was leaning towards no purchase on this game already. But reading all of the reviews, including positive ones, just makes me more certain that this game isn't for me.

    At the end of the day a review is based on opinion. Games are subjective and this reviewer did not enjoy their time with the game. I've heard accounts from others in the gaming media who played it and were underwhelmed too. This is normal. Very few games are universally liked or panned. This piece did what a review is supposed to do. It provided an account of the reviewer's time with the game, gave an opinion, and backed it up with well thought-out reasons for their opinion.

    Others might disagree, but I appreciate the honesty in this review. Thanks for being bold enough to run with it, US Gamer :)
