Mass Effect 3 Like/Hate?

Gotta say I'm surprised there isn't a thread here that I could find on this game.

I got it on release day and was relatively impressed with it until the obvious ending.

To those that own it, what are your thoughts, overall and the ending?

I'm curious to see what the press release Bioware is supposed to give in April will have to provide "closure". Because honestly the choice endings had nothing to do with any earlier choices in any of the other games other than a couple small things like destroying the collector base in ME2.

loved the game..improved a lot on the gameplay... but lost many RPG elements and exploration that made ME a great series...

also the ending wasn't as bad people made it out to be ... if you choose to control the reapers you are (unknowingly) completing your indoctrination by the reapers... if you choose to destroy the reapers you break free which is proven by that extra scene of shepard waking up on earth in the rubble...
So all the mass relay explosions never happened...

I answered: "Because, Bruce Lee is no joke."

Loved all 34 hours but those last 10 mins for the multiple choice on what color I wanted to paint the galaxy in...

I played it for three hours and enjoyed it so much that I decided to stop. I never played part 2, so I'm going to pick that one up and beat it before I continue my ME3 journey.

Turn her out until she turns on me. I'll never be the one to weigh the cost of these dreams.

Loved!

Don't understand why so much hate for the ending(s).

Lol, if you want a happy ending? Play a happy game/head on over to your dodgy local massage parlour.

like the game, been through it a couple times. I chose the jumping off ending where you start a new race of beings combining AI an humans...where Joker an Edi get together...although the circuit board skin texture on Joker looks strange.

Been playing the multiplayer a lot though. Have almost all the weapons at level 10, an almost a 400 N7 rating...although not really trying to get this that high.

Currently playing a Vorcha Sentinal in mp using ethier the Strikker or the M37. not the best combo, but works.

+1.

I'm going back through the series. I've restarted through 1 and I'm pretty much playing the opposite of the way I did the first time through to see how much me3 changes.

I wish the game had been longer, I was hooked with the new combat system, it was super intuitive.

Its a great game and the plot/ending must have taken alot of time. I wanna go pick up the previous 2 games now. The whole thing reminds me of SW.

The ending has been beaten like a dead horse but I have to say again that it totally blew. They recently released the extended cut ending that is supposed to fill in some plot holes but I passed on them...although they were free. It really came many months too late when any interest for me was already dead. The entire series was amazing I have to say. It was just the last 10 minutes that gave me a WTF moment.
