So I recently started a replay of Mass Effect 1, using the Infiltrator class. Benezia was probably the most difficult sub-boss, but I beat her by utilizing my team's biotic abilities. Other than that, I was able to get through the bosses of Mass Effect 1 pretty easily. I just got to Saren, and I defeated him in the first battle and convinced him to kill himself. Then the Sovereign took control of his body for the final boss.

The final boss fight with Saren was just so annoying. It took me a bunch of tries and I still haven't been able to beat him yet. Here's a video to show all those who haven't played the game:

I mean seriously, all he does is just dart around the map, it's so difficult to tag him. Not only that, but he has a high health pool, and it takes forever to pick away at his shields, and they just start recharging. As an Infiltrator, my sniper rifle/pistols do so little damage, and just makes his constant zipping around even more frustrating. His abilities also overheat the current weapon and screw around with the ability cooldowns.

So yeah, just a rant that I wanted to share with CV.

What did you guys think of the Sovereign-Saren battle at the end of ME1?

Thought he was talking about Saren the mod, that could have gotten a little nasty there.

If you have decent weapons and some biotic strength on your squad, he isn't too hard. And even without biotics he isn't too bad as long as you play it smart.

@banegeist:

Of course he does. Why else would he call himself "Saren"?

Its its not obvious to anyone that the point to insult one of the mods and get away with it, then you have a serious problem.
