>not necessarily a bad game but definitely a step down from >ME2.
My issue with the ending was that you spent a hundred plus hours making all these individual choices over the 3 titles that felt they had heft...shit you did in Mass Effect 1 came back to haunt you in 3....
but when the actual ending came all that shit before didn't matter...you could have played the series like a homicidal bloodthirsty maniac or like a peacenik..it was always gonna be the same shit.
Considering drastically different endings based on choices have been a mainstay since the SNES era, it felt like a cheap cop out. Plus much of the character closure felt rushed so when they introduce a new main bad guy...what could have been a 'WOAH' moment felt like, 'Who the fuck is this motherfucker'
