    Missed a couple of things due to bugs/skipped by accident.

    The Good
    - Combat system improved
    - Weapon customization was much needed
    - The mix between ME1 RPG + ME2 Action systems is a good one
    - The world around you feels more "alive", specially in the Citadel
    - Interaction between your squadmates is very well done
    - The length of the game is bigger than ME2, same as ME1
    - Multiplayer is very addicting and provide some tough challenges

    The Bad
    - There are some WTF plotholes through the Endings
    - Harbinger only makes a very brief appearence, which is disappointing
    - The dream sequences with the Kid aren't needed, or at least it should be cutscenes instead of boring gameplay
    - Many squadmates only have two or three major conversations through the game, in between these, they get "Zaeeded"
    - That blue wall in the Normandy's CIC is annoying as hell

    Still, ME3 is a great game, although i can see why some people are calling the weakest of the trilogy, mainly because of some plotholes and the endings, but overall is a great experience.

    My ratings on the previous games:
    ME1: 9.5/10
    ME2: 9.8/10

    My rating for ME3:
    9/10
    Hmm.... this seems like an exact copy of a review I read on BSN!

    I was completely engrossed in the game, up until the last hour or so. I am really conflicted right now. I LOVE the Mass Effect universe, I really do. I totally have an emotional attachment with the characters in these games. I've laughed at them, I've cried with them. I already miss them. Mass Effect 3 had many great moments in it for me. It had plenty of laughs and at other moments had me in tears. But the endings left me with a sour taste in my mouth. I actually don't feel like making another run through the game (ME1 and 2 I did many, and did so immediately after). For those of who who haven't finished, enjoy the ride. It's a blast. Experience the ending at the last possible moment though.

    Not driving me insane by any means, but I'm glad you're enjoying the game, at least. I suppose I'm just becoming picky.

    Sorry EA, I bought TOR and payed for a beta for two months, I bought this and got 75% of a game, having to pay more to complete. I will never buy another EA product again, unless things change drastically. RIP (To me)

    ...Last time I am going to say this. The "DLC" is not cut or content that is just locked on the disc since its almost 1GB. Its content that was developed outside of the main development cycle, meaning if DLC didn't exist then we would have never seen it. The code for it is included in the CE version of the game. They reason why they offer it on day 1 is for people who didn't order the CE. People are just confirming their own bias.

    For me it wasn't that the endings themselves were BAD, more that they were poorly told, made no sense and your decisions seemed to have 0 effect past the final farewells.

    I have 100% paragon and 3% renegade, I could have chosen renegade on the final conversation check.

    WTF was the Normandy doing there at the end? And why were those people onboard?

    And the logic at the end was just ...wat for me. I mean, to stop synthetics killing everyone, they kill everyone every 50k years using synthetic life, good job, great "solution"

    I LOVED the rest of the game (bar a few bugs) but the ending is just ridiculous. (people complained that it was... sad? Really?)

Just like everyone has preferred stores or restaurants they only go to, Steam is my preferred online video game service.
    Thats like me saying I refuse to buy Nikes because Wal-Mart doesn't sell them...

    Say what you want about EA but why is it wrong that they publisher would like to distribute their own material?

    I agree, there are some major plotholes with these endings:



    -Why the Normandy left the battle has no explanation, also your squadmates that were with you in the final mission are "magically" teleported into the Normandy.
    -The reason for the Reapers existence is also stupid:[url]http://i1001.photobucket.com/albums/af134/gnosblax/yodawgme.jpg[/url]

    I had a better ending just from reading the damn planet info's on ME2...

    Dark Energy causes stars to become unstable after X years: Caused by Mass Effect fields: Requires technological reset.

    Explains why reapers lay dormant in deadspace, doesn't require your godlike mystery entity to be retarded

    Also, when you choose your ending:

    A brief flashback shows the 3 most important people in Shepard's life, the first two are Joker and Anderson, and the third is...Liara,Ashley or Kaidan. It doesn't matter who you romanced in ME2, the game just shows that Liara is more important than your love interest.

    I wouldn't know about that, I romanced her

    It's like they gave up after the mission before earth (spoilers) then again after the final farewells.

    I had a military strength of 6.2k at the end (missed a load of stuff and sacrificed some on quarian world) and I felt it had NO effect beyond the minimum.

    There's NO indication of what happened to any of the characters... beyond ridiculous plotholes. (even something DAO style would be nice)

    Like I said I LOVED the rest of the game (beyond a few bugs) but the ending is just... SO MUCH WAT. I would rather have it sadder and make sense than that.

    As bad as it sounds, if it fixed those endings I would probably get it.

    Inb4 DLC rage but that was just awful.

    I saw the user ratings on Metacritic (not that I trust Metacritic) and... well. Let's just say alot of people give the game a 0 with the only reason they have is "homo-sex". Really? I can understand other issues such as Origin, day1 DLC etc but "homo-sex everywhere" is a theme that is so recurring in all those "reviews" that I am beginning to think that the Vatican is doing the reviewing.

    It's not "wrong", but I'm not going to install a client system for every publisher. If the publisher makes installing a heavy handed, DRM laden client a requirement, I'll not be playing their game.
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning.

    God I fucking love the mass effect codex. Every time they come out I sit and listen to all the entries. That guy has the most news worthy voice in the galaxy. He should run for office or something.
