The Final Chapter in the Mass Effect Trilogy
Not everyone will survive. An ancient alien race, known only as "Reapers," has launched an all-out invasion leaving nothing but a trail of destruction in their wake. Earth has been taken, the galaxy is on the verge of total annihilation, and you are the only one who can stop them. The price of failure is extinction. You are Commander Shepard, a character that you can forge in your own image. You determine how events will play out, which planets to explore, and whom to form alliances with as you rally a force to eliminate the Reaper threat once and for all. How you wage this war is completely up to you: go into combat with guns blazing or use cover to plan a more tactical assault. Utilize your squad to full effect or take a lone wolf approach. Rain death from a distance or go toe-to-toe with enemies using devastating melee attacks. Mass Effect 3 will react to each decision you make as you play through a truly unique experience of your own creation.

Why do I give it 4 stars if the ending was so bad?
Most of the rest of the game was decent. I enjoyed the majority of the side missions. The planet scanning thing was much less painful than its predecessors. The music was still lovely. There's much to like about this game.
Conclusion: If you loved the first two, see the story to the end.
1) The story is just terrible. I won't go further into detail as to why, I'll just say after 2 games of setting this all up, you'll find yourself disappointed with the outcome. All those important decisions you made in the last 2 games become nothing more than a number in my next fault.
2) There's this thing called galactic readiness. It's a number. The whole point of the game is to just get the number as high as you can. The only way to get it high is by performing some incredibly boring tasks. Including...
3) Multi-player. Which is just a boring, repetitive horde mode. I'd say it would be a great new addition to the game, but if you want to complete single player with any sort of positive outcome, you have to play multilayer. A lot. Because of another number. A percentage. It's the percent of the first number you try to get that you actually get. The only way to raise it, is to play multi-player. And it's impossible to get that number high enough without multi-player.
4) This goes back to story kind of, but the biggest flaw is that you really only get half of the single player. Everything in the games story is bare bones A lot of it is included in about $50 of DLC. Like so much of the story is wrapped up in it, characters even reference events that happen in the main game. If you're going to sell me something, sell me the whole thing. Not part of it, then all the other parts separately.
It is small step below the endlessly memorable Mass Effect 2 but a solid game in its own right. The characters that have grown with you through the trilogy continue to develop and have the pay offs they've been building to. The very end of the game has issues but its not the only end. Throughout the entire game characters and areas meet conclusions and its completely satisfying.
The multiplayer mode is more of an afterthought but its surprisingly enjoyable. Not a reason alone to buy the game but a fun mode to check out.
the ending was awesome too. Except you need to be a lover of philosophy to truly "get it", and yes I got it! lol I think the people who got upset had no idea what they where looking at so they immediately got upset. But even if your not into games that make you think the action definitely makes up for it.
