Well, my only response to all the whining about the facial animations is:
Let me get them some cheese.
Considering everything else this game has to offer, refusing to play it because some of the animations of the face seem to be off, or not quite right,
is like canceling a game because someone saw a cloud in the sky: making a mountain out of a mole hill.
I can take any computer game out there, and find a huge amount of things to pick apart in it.
But, at the end of the day, what I take a look at is the game as a whole, and whether or not it was worth my time and money. So far, Andromeda has
both met and exceeded my expectations.
The only time I have ever played a computer game where the people in it looked "real" were those games that used real people. Myst, Riven, Myst 3 and
Myst 4 as examples. They green screened in the actors. In the late 1990s there were a couple of Star Trek TNG games that came out that were actually
interactive videos, basically, you were playing a movie or episode of Star Trek with real actors and props.
While CGI has come a very long way, even the best looking games out there are a far cry from real life, and even the most "realistic" looking animated
characters are not real looking. Even in things like the movie "Avatar"
For me it was: Content and rich environment. And on that ME:A delivers in gold. I've got 40 to 50 GB worth of it, and that far out weighs complaints
about the faces.
But, there will be those that will take it to the extreme. Just like "Wine Snobs", I have to look at those that feel that way about ME:A because of
how the characters look the same way: "Facial Animation Snobs", hehehehehe
