Mass Effect 3 got rid of big maps? Really?

I guess if you consider all of Feros to be one map (or all of Noveria), and ignore the fact that it has to load, then yes, the maps are smaller, because in ME2 and ME3 they are more split up. ME3 actually goes back to this idea a little bit by having you do multiple missions on main homeworlds. THey're not seamlessly integrated, but you do walk around on Rannoch several times, for example.

If you count a map as everything you can walk to without loading, I think ME3's maps are bigger than any of the others.

In any case, I'm having a great time playing the game. The combat is much improved, and the storytelling is fantastic in this one. I just finished the Geth/Quarian war in a wholy satisfying manner.

The ending's gonna suck, but oh well. I can at least pretend that my 8000 War Assets and counting would just wipe the fucking floor with the Reapers.

Edit : As for Kai Leng, he's bullshit. The superhero shit he pulls off on the Citadel is just plain retarded. I'd believe if he was capable of that if his name was Anakin Skywalker. Not when he's an augmented Phantom.
