I have played all three mass effects games. With the first two, the story kind of seemed to go on forever and I got bored and never finished it. It seems with the 3rd one, I was able to spend as much time as I wanted doing side missions and looking for war assets, but when I started the feel the repetitive itch of boredom, I was able to jump back into the "priority" or main missions and finish the game up. Sure, there are more side missions to complete and I may end up doing them, but at least I can say I beat the main mission line.

UNSPECIFIC SPOILERS

Let's get it out of the way to start with - why do people hate the ending? EVERYTHING about the ending is good, with the exception of the entire... premise....

Basically - a conversation tells you at the end "I created synthetic life, to wipe out all organic life, before they make synthetic life, and wipe out all organic life". The premise makes no sense, no one buys it, and it upsets many loyal fans.

Decisions - EVERY SINGLE decision you have made will rear it's head at some point in this game, even if you don't import a character, the default choices will impact how your game plays out. When you get to the end, even being 100% "Renegade", you can choose the "Paragon" ending, and vice versa (I think this upset some other people about the ending

Gameplay - What we've come to expect from ME1 and Me2, and even more improved. More skills, "bonus" skills, upgrading weapons, weapon customization, same old cover system - with an added "roll" system (will be annoying to ME1-ME2 fans at first, until you get used to not tapping A while moving).

Multiplayer - Amazing. Yes you need an online pass - buy one for 8 bucks. If you don't have 8 bucks - you can't use their servers - simple. Bronze is very easy, Gold is very hard, and Silver is a solid challenge. Completing online matches raises your galaxies "state of readiness", and increases the strength of your final assault on the reapers.

Story - You really don't spend as much time with your Crew as I would've liked, but, everyone moved on in the 2 years you were off duty - and you'll find that out as you go on.

Overall - Perfect game, with an ending that on a purely "logical" basis - made no sense. However, a great ending. Especially if you finish with the "best" ending, a lot of the problems are resolved.

Only 9/10 because of the whole "synthetic life to kill organic life before it kills itself", it just doesn't make sense...
