A motion-capture adaption of Mass Effect, directed by Ridley Scott, with J.J. Abrams and James Cameron producing, would be pure cinematic brilliance.

Just got it.

It's really, really good so far. But for some reason, I'm just.. not getting the same feeling as ME2. I guess I have to wait and see. But I miss some of ME2's features. And I liked the layout of the Normandy better in ME2.

So I found out that you can actually promote your multiplayer characters ala prestige system from Call of Duty. You're multiplayer character gets added to the war effort in the single player game, this is essential if you want the best ending possible.

The character sacrifices in this game were certainly heartfelt. Each major mission has some heartfelt sacrifice that I really enjoyed.

I'm just disappointed they didn't give me an "Ah yes Reapers" option with the Turian Councilor.

Yes, but if you're not going to do the multiplayer make sure that you finish the side missions you've gotten before the tuchanka missions before you finish the tuchanka missions because some missions will suddenly be blacked out and be considered incomplete because of an event.

No problem, I'm a bit weary on spoilers considering I got permabanned from a different forum for posting fake spoilers that I can now confirm didn't come true at all.

Yeah but my spoilers were pulled out of my ass kind, one that I made up a month before ME3 got released. I understand if it were something I made up after it was released and I actually had some knowledge of what's going on but that wasn't the case. Plus the fake spoiler was really just me piecing two and two together with the situation in ME2, it's pretty much just a guess, one of the mods even agreed that if I had only added "I think this will happen because in ME2 this and this would logically equal this" I wouldn't be permabanned from N4G..

@danhimself:There are also 16 different endings, depending on if you destroyed the Collectors Base in ME2 or not, there are 8 if you did and 8 if you didn't.

Is it? I had heard that it wasn't required. Does it matter if I have 100% of the war assets?

Also, how do I get higher than 50% on each space sector?

The next point of no return is the mission after Sanctuary. You'll know it because the game basically tells you that it's a no turning back kind of deal.

I'm disappointed with the game for the following reasons.

1. Ending sucks (makes all your decisions worthless).

2. Dumbing down RPG elements for fear of casual players.

3. Paying for content that's already on disc.

I'm glad I didn't spend sixty dollars on this. I love Mass Effect, but when it's reduce to what three is then I have no interest in continuing the story. I'll spoil it for myself by watching youtube videos.

How about the combat and characters?

@TheGoldenOne:

Combat has gotten better. Although they emphasized "stealth" and "stealth" is basically a matter of "who do I kill first" because no matter what you do or how you do it, everyone will be alerted the second you kill someone. So I skipped the melee, took out my sniper rifle, and performed a headshot on whoever I felt was the biggest (one-shot-able) threat.

The inclusion of the "heavy melee attack" is rather nice. But I felt cheated of some real hard-hitting melee.

As for characters... I don't know what I can say without giving away spoilers.

I picked the paragon ending where you control the reapers. I like the geth so I didn't want to kill them, I don't feel right converting the entire galaxy into synthetics. The only positive part of the synthesize ending is that Joker can finally bang EDI.

He could barely contend with Thane even though he was terminally Ill. He ran from Shephard on the Asari planet then Shephard punked him out by breaking his sword and killing him.
