Most open world games have pretty bad facial animations. Yet every time one is released people seem to forget this and rip into the latest open world game. They did it with Horizon even though, by open world standards, the animation was actually pretty good. Now its Mass Effect, as the animations are as bad as normal for Bioware.Horizons has lots of bad animations even for open world standards. Lip syncing just got off a lot.
At other times, I think it looked better than Uncharted 4.
