Yes, and I curse the fact that I changed my mind. I kept telling myself not to get it and complaining about the fact that it was a forced Origin release. I even bought it having been burned by DragonAge 2, hoping against hope that it might be good.

Sadly I was wrong. ***Spoilers in hidden text***

The constant promise was that choices that you made in the previous games would have drastic effects in the finale. As it turns out, the only difference is whether or not you saved the Collector base or destroyed it. All the other choices were for nothing. Save the Rachni, doesn't matter. Reactivate Legion, doesn't matter, you just get a different cutscene with the exact same result. Terrible endings, of which there are only 3 with very minor differences. All love interests permanently lost or separated. Not even an out clause like in DragonAge, it literally does not matter. Add to this terrible multiplayer that you have to play if you want to get the "good" ending options.]s
