The only thing about the mass effect 3 soundtrack that I would reflect on was that it was felt (to me at any rate) less adventurous and exciting then the previous ones. It fits the experience a bitter sweetness to it. Now in and of itself it's fantastic and really it reflects the sad fact that the adventure you've went on for all these years is coming to and so from a thematic perspective it is wholly fitting. I just miss suicide run I guess. Or even something like
Again it's not worse or better it just represents a different theme. The first game is still about a futuristic sexy sci fi adventure that is just beginning in many regards. Ilos reflects that and it's an obvious nod to Blade Runner as well. Now of the last game I think the song that best symbolizes or sums up the experience best was
I'm by no means ashamed to say it brought a tear to my eye. It's beautiful in it's sorrow. The juxtaposition of the violins and the futuristic synth is so well done but ultimately so sorrowful. One can almost hear the rain in the background.
Relating to this somewhat but not entirely I've recently had the opportunity to go through all 3 games again and it's amazing to watch the growth of some of the characters. Liara is an excellent example of this. She was a somewhat shy reserved scientist who spent much of life alone going from one dig to another. In fact when you meet her the first time she is literally helpless, almost a damsell in distress. Flash forward to the 3rd game and your first encounter with her is quite the opposite. After some chase, she lures cerburus guards and dispatches them with ease even going so far as to shoot one after he is down and out of the fight so to speak.
