Honestly, having taken a couple of weeks to look at my experience, it's probably the last Bioware game I really play. I might pick up anything else if it hits the bargain bin, but gone are the days of waiting for them to release games.
The single player was full of MMORPG-style busywork. The areas were open, but kind of hollow of anything meaningful or poorly designed in both terms of content and traveling around in them. Making it feel really disjointed in the processes, like an Elder Scrolls knockoff.
The story was just one giant missed opportunity. You head the Inquisition. Something that could have done a lot more than stop two conflicts (rather unsatisfying on the one they set up previously too). However they leashed you in to stopping one thing, which was pretty decent, but the stuff you're doing most of the time just doesn't compare. Would not have minded another gather-army thing because it made sense. Your moral and sociopolitical choices are at an all-time low for a Bioware game, especially for an organization dubbing itself the Inquisition. It's almost insulting. The only mechanic that enforces the story and vice versa is really the mark and closing fade rifts gets old quick. Bioware needs to better learn how to integrate mechanics and story.
The ending to the story was not satisfying and it was worse than ME 3 structurally (which we all know held up until the last 30 seconds, though I'm not nearly as angry at it as the people at large myself) and worse than ME 1 in terms of payout, far worse than ME 1.
I didn't play the multiplayer, but every game that has a multiplayer always has to divert the manpower from somewhere else. So I think if they had skipped trying to put in a multiplayer (like every developer and his or her brother these days) they might have hopefully been able to make an incredibly strong single player game. Still woulda', coulda', shoulda'.
The game is good, fun at times, skull-numbingly boring at others, but I just don't think Bioware have made anything close to a great game. It certainly hasn't restored my faith in the company.
Aside from this though: I'm glad so many sexualities were given as romance options in Inquisition, but generally the most options came in for the straight-female inquisitors. :\
Still better than the stupid insensitivity that was having everyone be bi.
