I really don't get all the hatred for the ending. I haven't done the "extended cut" ending yet, so I can't say if it's better/worse, but the ending that the game shipped with was bloody brilliant.
I waited till this game was $10 brand new to pick it up lol, so maybe my opinion is scewed b/c I didn't spend $60 hoping for my "dream" ending to the trilogy, but I absolutely loved the game and the ending.
