I know there was a lot of pre-release excitement for this game, but now that people have actually played it - any reviews?

I held off on buying this and after plowing through a bunch of reviews online I'm thinking I'm going to hold off a bit longer. The Metacritic score is 87 (critic) which relatively speaking isn't all that good given the usual skew toward high-scores on big name titles. The Metacritic user score is 3.8 which is even worse than ME3's(!)

I know a lot of this has to do with backlash concerning the always-online DRM requirements, server problems and game crashes. I'd expect the latter two to eventually get resolved so that doesn't bother me, but after reading through a bunch of user feedback on Amazon, it seems like there's a lot more than just these items and that the game design itself is disappointing to many people.

Nostalgia aside, thoughts?
