Excellent

One of the best games ever, except the end...

This game was amazing. For me, I honestly can't think of a game that I enjoyed as much as this one. EA and Bioware have consistently delivered, and this game may be among their best ever. It's every bit a cinematic experience as it is a game. The story was engrossing, the drama was gripping, and the action was intense. The music was also pretty creative. If you're a hardcore RPG fan as well as a Sci-Fi fan, this game is exactly what you're looking for. In many ways, it reminded me of The new Battlestar Galactica series, which was released on the sci-fi channel not long ago. (an excellent series by the way). Honestly, this was a fantastic piece of work by this studio. Enthralling. I think this game definitely improved upon ME2. Scanning planets was a lot easier, even more enjoyable. Great game.

I won't ruin the end. All I can tell you is I wanted a bit more warm and fuzzy. The other thing is that it seems this truly is the end of the series, which also makes me sad. What can I say? I mean, it would be great to know there's another installment on the way but the way the game ended and the way the story was told, it seemed kind of "final". It can be slightly glitchy at times but just slightly. I guess that's what happens when everyone is stressed and trying to get the game out on time. Thank you EA and Bioware, for another fantastic experience, even much better than the last one.

Very Good

Captivating but clunky

Game story line is great! Very intricate and a lot of character development without long waits between the action. Controls are a bit clunky and not very smooth movements. You'll often find yourself in heavy combat and want to take cover but end up rolling into the lines of fire. Once you get comfortable with it, it'll become easier. It's just those moments when you could have survive but find yourself dead because of faulty controls.
