I've put three hours into this thing and I have one comment:

Massive galactic fuckstorm is an understatement. Many sci-fi games claim to bring in galactic scale and urgency, few games deliver on said claim. The Mass Effect series is one of few games, and this game... it's hard to put into perspective how Bioware managed to present that. In recent years very few games for me have managed to weigh in it's world and it's situation in such a way that it actually feels like a physically heavy burden even for a piece of fiction. Games like ICO and Shadow of the Colossus would be examples where you could feel the situation so much for me it felt almost somatic. Though Mass Effect 3 doesn't reach such heart and soul reaching levels as those games, Bioware at least for the first few hours managed to do something I haven't felt in a long time.

I know the galaxy is in one massive fuckstorm, and by god I can feel it.
