Just finished Mass Effect 2. Nervous about starting Mass Effect 3.
Posted 8/1/12
I'm scared to start Mass Effect 3 because of all the hub-bub revolving around the ending. I'm pretty attached to the Shepherd I've build through the first two games and don't want to play it if she's destined to die no matter what I do.

What were your experiences with ME3?

They fixed everything with the free extended ending DLC. Enjoy it without worry.

I agree.

No game is perfect. If you enjoyed the first two games, then you'll get more of the same with game #3. And it wraps up the story very well now that the extended ending is out.

Well the extended cut ending provides closure and closes a few plot holes that were in the original ending. Extended Cut also made ME3 have more than one ending which is a plus. The thing about ME3 is that you can't save every one and that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's not as ME2 or 1 but it's still decent and you can tell that it was rushed. There was also a lot of things that could have been done to make ME3 go from okay to great but I guess they just didn't have the time for it. But I'm surprised by how much they salvaged the ending with extended cut after you beat the game watch the original endings on youtube and you'll see what I mean. My Shepard didn't die either but I wish he was dead mostly because I was prepared for him to die. But ME3 has less of a replay value than ME2 and 1 I've only beat it once. Also the multiplayer is pretty fun but the Geth are cheap bastards on Gold and Platinum difficulty. The last thing is just be happy you didn't get the collectors edition because this game is not worth $80.

Mass effect 3 is better dude. If you don't play then there was no point to play 2. My oppinion

Hay don't worry about it, even when there was the big hubbub the complaints where really about the last 10-15 mins.
Seriously the rest of it is worth it even if you turn out not to like what they did at the end, which has since been changed anyway.

Play it at your own risk. Just pick the one play through you like the most and go with it. Also the following isn't really a spoiler but if you want know as little as possible then avoid this.


I also suggest you read the books because they used those to advance the story. So there are things that will make no sense unless you read them.

Game was great until the end, even with the extended it was a great disappointment for me. Still worth a play through or 5.
