tldr; Your choices dont matter. You get almost no closure. It doesnt really make a lot of sense.
Did you have 100% strength in all areas? I hear there is actually a different ending if you did. Maybe you got the bad ending.

I usually don't agree with these types of threads in single player games because then they would be flooding every game...but the only thing I can complain about is:

Miranda not a squad member
Mordin not a squad member

They were my main people, used them pretty much the entire game on my first run, which was on Insanity.

My only real complaint is that I feel like Shepard takes up too much of the screen during combat. I literally finished ME2 the night before I started this and I never got the feeling he was taking up too much space. Many times he blocks my view from items after a battle is over. Minor nuisance though...

One more thing, which isn't even really a complaint. I can't decide to romance Ashley (who looks extra bangin and I romanced in ME) or Jack (who also looks extra good with her new half ponytail and I romanced in ME2). I've kissed Jack a few times now, but I feel really guilty considering Ashley is lying in a hospital bed and the last time I saw her, I told her I wanted to be "us" again...

Thumbs down Fail!!!

Serioulsy is wrong with the scanner in the Normandy.

Every fucking time I accomplish any mission I obviously have to return to the COMMAND DECK and every fucking time I get scanned by this laser wall in the room with the two girls.

I'M COMMANDER SHEPARD, I DON'T NEED TO BE SCANNED!!!

I have done 2 endings, and seen the third. My comments stand. I would actually be fine even if there was a little text or something explaining what happens to everybody but, the game just ends so abruptly with no explanation to what happens after you make your decision.

I noticed they are in other parts of the game, but you can just run through them. Kind of weird. Meme time!

Lol! Sometimes I catch myself saying the ME2 equivalent out loud..."I'm Commander Shepard and this is my Favorite store on the Citadel."

My complaint is regarding having to actually play MP for certain achievements. I was under the impression you wouldn't have to play MP (which was a shitty addition in my opinion) to get the same results in single player. But upon further reading I find you need to play MP to increase galactic readiness and to get "most" war assets delievered for certain achievements. This is complete bullshit, some "optional" mode that turned out to be. Even the ending is different (from what I hear, don't quote me) if you play MP, even though we were told it wouldn't be.

You can pretty much attain all war assets through SP. Also the ahcievements that can be obtained through MP can also be obtained through single player as well, namely the N7 missions.

lmao. I thought that, too. I wanted to check in and push for more discounts, since the Citadel doesn't seem to give a fuck about the reapers in an official capacity.

LOL I think it's for loading. Basically slowing you down so the next area can be loaded. Just my guess. Same thing with certain doors during gameplay that take awhile to open compared to others.

My biggest gripe- and I'm fairly easy to please in most games- is how it feels like everyone from me2 got drop kicked into obscurity in me3. Granted, Garrus and Tali get some love since they're holdovers from me1, and I get that we needed to have a guaranteed electronics expert (hence EDI), but I loved my old crew, and I barely get to see them. And whoever wrote the Thane romance needs to sit down and feel bad about what they did.


I haven't had much of an auto-targeting issue, although that might be because I'm playing as an adept, do I'll count myself lucky there.

The game was amazing, probably the best of the series. The ending however, was terrible. Its like once they reached mass effect 3 they realized they had an amazing story and had no idea to conclude it. Really bums me out that a 3 game series with such an astounding story ends so meekly

There is 1 perfect ending, but you must have 5k or more war assist to see the good ending.

Agreed. The only person that I enjoy out of the Mass Effect 3 squadmates is Garrus. If only I could get Mordin, Wrex, or Grunt to stay on my team.

Oh I did have that, and I even cheated and youtubed the other endings to just make sure I didnt happen to miss it. They are just bad IMO. They arent too terribly different from one another anyways in the first place.

yea it's annoying, but i think it's a substitute for a loading screen.

what's more annoying (imo) is, are the grenades on insanity.
and the fact that you need online to 1k this.

I mean looking through the endings it really doesnt seem to have that much of a difference on the ending, your readiness I mean. I was expecting some pretty big variety ranging from tragic failure to total victory depending on how ready you were, simply didnt happen really. If that last 5 minutes didnt exist, and the game ended 5 minutes before that, it would have been glorious.

I can imagine. I'm still on my first playthrough on NORMAL just for training and to figure out the hard parts when I'm going for the INSANITY run.

I have two main issues with the game

1. I'm switching discs between every mission.

2. None of my choices matter.
2 is what really irks me, I was excited to see how my decisions would have consequences!
I try to argue this to my friend who is looking at the game through rose colored glasses but he just claims I didn't pick the "right" or "canon" choices
Spoiler! (click here to reveal)

why did I bother making choices in ME1 and ME2? I was gonna go back and make a new full playthrough with different choices in both games but now? Why bother

what exactly are they scanning for? bombs? I think if a suicide bomber made it to the Normandy he wouldn't have to set it off in the war room. Or maybe its scanning to see if you are a Reaper

And to bitch about something: I hate how perfect the aim of enemies is. They can shoot you through a 5 cm crack in the wall or hit you with sniper accuracy from an assault rifle while on the move.
