I finally finished Mass Effect 3 yesterday. I was very invested in the excellent story (as I have been for the past two installments) and powered my way through to the end. I won't talk about the controversial ending because I don't want to give away any spoilers, and I'm still processing what I really thought about it. But I imagine what I would have to say about the ending has likely already been said by countless gaming articles either praising it, condemning it, or both.
But I will list what I loved about Mass Effect 3 without giving anything away:
- The last level leading up to the final confrontation was intense.
- The Shepard and Tali romance is the sweetest one in the game.
- "I am the very model of a scientist salarian."
- A beautiful soundtrack.
- "Eve." What a woman.
- The quarian missions.
- Everyone I've spoken to who imported save files from the previous games has had a remarkably different story to follow.
I'm sure I'll have more to say on the subject as time goes on (and downloadable content becomes available) but, as I usually say, that's all from me for now.
