Biggest issue I have with the animations is the eyes. They bounce all over the place. And they feel like they're floating in the socket. There's other janky animations going on also, but the eyes distract me. And the main character's face never changing. Bleh.
The eyes are shocking.
I remember watching one scene and it appeared as if they had mo-capped the voice actor and recorded their eye movement while reading their lines from a sheet of paper. Their eyes doing the whole,, move right, move right, move right, JUMP left, repeat..
I'm not saying that's what happened and I refuse to believe anyone is so stupid to have done that. It's just that it's so bad you end up watching it and thinking about that instead of what's being said, though what's being said is so cringe worthy most of the time which doesn't help avoid your mind wondering.
They continually wonder around instead of aiming at the thing/person they should be. If their head and body moved during a conversation their eyes should remain locked on what has their attention. This is par for the course kind of stuff nevermind for a AAA game. Even Mass Effect 1 wipes the floor with ME Andromeda with this.
The eyes are a mess from start to finish, beyond their animation. The textures are inexcusable, one could point to cheap indie games as examples or even decade old games, but you don't even have to as random monkeys online have "ms-pained" them as examples of how to do it better.
The eyes also don't focus, this was blatant the first time I saw that talking fish wearing makeup. They remain set, like two lasers remaining exactly parallel as if focusing on a distant star, constantly, soullessly starting through everything
