Yeah the dream sequences were really annoying. Like, Max Payne 1 type annoying.

As for the ending... eh. Not really sure what to think. I do agree it sucks there's no "Shepard and Ashley ride off into the sunset together, and the galaxy, united as never before, enters a golden age."

On the flipside, I don't really feel it's that bad that it makes the game completely unplayable anymore. It was a great journey, and the rather poor finish by some hack writers who obviously feel they are much better than they really are, ("yeah, we built the Reapers to kill you before you build synthetic life that kills you! We're your salvation!" Okay, Mac Walters... put down the fucking crack pipe before it kills you,) doesn't diminish the journey.

I fail to see what all my work with the war assets has to do with it all, though. I brought as close as makes no difference 7000 war assets into the final fight, and what for? The ending guides also talk of "Shepard lives with 4000+ and 5000+, and Anderson lives with 4000+ but dies with 5000+", (huh?) yet I'm pretty damn sure my Shepard is dead.


Great game. Poor ending.
