    Mass Effect: Andromeda launched earlier this month to mixed reviews, with criticism directed at its inconsistent writing, mission variety, and its infamous facial animations that appear to be a step down from what was offered in the previous games. The game has opened to relatively disappointing sales in the United Kingdom, with physical sales behind that of Mass Effect 3.

    Given the continuing growth of digital game sales — particularly on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 over the last several years — this information isn’t an immediate cause for concern. However, though it was the top-selling game during its launch week, Mass Effect: Andromeda is currently behind both Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Horizon: Zero Dawn in total 2017 game sales. The latter game is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and a new IP, which typically don’t sell as well as established franchises, but its excellent reviews have certainly helped.
