I adore the Mass Effect series for all of the changes to the world that happened based on my character's actions, things as grand as wether a civilization lives or dies, or if some guy gets his refund in the citadel markets. I felt like Shepard made her mark in the galaxy and earned her reputation, for better or worse. The first 99.9% of this game is the same, which why I gave this review a 3 star instead of 1. The reason it doesn't get a 5 is that all of those moments are rendered meaningless in the final minutes of gameplay. The entire plot takes a left turn, and rail-roads you into 1 of three options that change the color pallete of the final cutscene, screws-over gallactic civilization, and strands your crew on some unknown planet, never to be heard from again. There is no epilogue, no closure.
Unless something is done, I will never trust Bioware with my gaming dollars, and more importantly: my time, again. I recommend that you don't either.
