I've played the game twice thus far and would have to say this is definitely a must own XBOX 360 game for RPG fans. My first run through of the game was done without a ME1 or ME2 import and that was some depressing storyline to say the least. I won't ruin anyone's day with spoilers here, but you are going to need a psychologist to talk you off the ledge after the ME3 ending without a solid ME1 and ME2 import.
The second play through was a lot more enjoyable. I would probably give the experience a 9/10, but not everyone has the luxury of a nice ME1/ME2 import to start the game with. I used a ME1 and ME2 import where I was mostly paragon and saved as many people/creatures as possible while also doing all loyalty missions and side missions at my disposal. The story as a whole was longer, as there were many more characters included this time around like Jack and Thane from ME2. The ending may disappoint some, but as someone who enjoys thinking outside the box, I felt as though the ending was open to one's interpretation. The process of indoctrination is utterly engrossing.

The story was so dark but yet very entertaining, as if I was living in a sci fi epic movie or something. Combat mechanics was very nice for an RPG, The story gave me chills like the Reapers are far worse compared to the Covenant I swear haha. The only thing I was disappointed about this game was the ending, I wished it was totally different and more epic where you would literally have a tear rolling out your eye because this game HAS THAT POTENTIAL. But anyway overall this is the perfect game for the Sci-FI/Story drivin gamer

I am going to say this was one of the best games I have played in a long time. The whole time I felt the galaxy was actually depending on how I did. Put in extra time to procure allies and units for warfare before the final battle as I could. I am not going to talk about the ending but really it was bad. I mean really bad to the point it even negated my ability to use my imagination to make it better. I would have given this game a 10 but after all the work and the horrible ending its only getting a 9.
