Play Mass Effect 3 to the endings. (Click Here for endings)
I realize that I’m very late to the party with this complaint but I thought that the issue was so egregious as to merit a revisit. Don’t get me wrong- I loved Mass Effect 3. I thought that the mechanics were the best in the series and the way it integrated the choices and decisions for the other games in a meaningful way was wonderful. What I don’t understand is why they messed up the original cuts of the endings so badly. The player had no idea what was going on, no idea what the ramifications of their choices were and absolutely no sense of closure. The irony is that the extended cuts they released after the outcry delivered everything that was missing in the originals and added only a little time to the experience. I have no idea why Bioware didn’t include the extended cuts from the get go to avoid the damage to their reputation. This is a perfect example of little details ruining an otherwise great product or experience.
