How far Bioware's IP has fallen. :)

Bioware isnt even Bioware anymore. They started going downhill shortly after Jade empire kinda, but really went to shit after they got bought by EA after the first ME. First ME was one of my fave 360 games.. never played 2 or 3. Pretty soon they'll just be making gears of war clones with a few branching dialog trees

You should give 2 & 3 a try. It's kind of hard to believe one's opinion on Bioware when one hasn't even given their later games a chance. I know 3 didn't have the most well received ending, but Mass Effect is as big as it is for a reason. My personal opinion though is that ME1 was the best of the trilogy and I hate EA. No shots fired, by the way. ha

I thoroughly enjoyed 2. 3 was almost as great as 2...but the ending was just terrible...terrible.

ME1 was a good game but it was a clunky prototype in comparison to ME2.  ME2 is much better in every way.

 

The 'RPG' elements of ME1 were pretty weak.  The armor system/item system was dated and not intelligently implemented at all.

Yeah, but even with the horrible ending, Mass Effect 3 has some of the most memorable moments in the series.  It's worth the experience.

Couldn't stand ME3 but loved ME1. I felt 3 took so many RPG elements out it stopped interesting me.

But hey I'm a RPG nerd!

I might be a PC gamer and all...

...but no matter how you cut it - $3 for ME3 X360 pre-owned sounds like a killer deal.

I actually bought this at $4.49 a month or so back just to have a backup copy  :wall:

 

I still rate the series ME1>ME2>ME3 as I loved 1's exploration.  Yeah the Mako had problems and the inventory management was awful but there was still a ton of epicness.

I already own the Wii U version, so I'll have to pass on this. I really ought to go back to that...

ME3 was amazing. The ending was less than satisfactory but don't let that stop you from picking up the game.

I agree 100% w/ this.

 

The last 10-20 minutes just can't ruin entirely the other 40-50 hours that I spent w/ the game.

Sure - IMHO, the ME3 base-game's ending was not good at all.

But the rest of the game's great.

 

Overall from start-to-finish, though - for me, ME2 is where it's at.

I agree with this. From what I've seen, Mass Effect 2 seems to have better enemy placement and isn't quite as bleak. Mass Effect 2 was an obsession for me; I dare say that it was the best game of the last console generation. Mass Effect 3 is just a pretty good follow-up.

Yes it can. Watch the last episode of Six Feet Under and you'll see how to close out a series - it's the sort of thing that should have been done here. There's also the problem with your decisions having negligible impact on the plot, and requiring you to play online or the IPhone game to get the best ending (which isn't much of an improvement) and the poorly explained/implemented love interest system which caused many to hook up with the wrong person and can't get out of it. There were a lot of good things, I'll admit - the Quarian-Geth conflict coming to a conclusion, the tense atmosphere surrounding the impending (and seemingly unstoppable) mission that awaits, among others, and the gameplay improvements (being able to jump short distances and over walls, and can use ladders) as well as graphical upgrades and more interesting and varied areas.

I think the biggest (but hardly only) problem with the ending is that the characters and your decisions are pretty much forgotten by the time it comes around.

Maybe it's the original Fable syndrome - making promises impossible to keep, but that doesn't mean it still doesn't suck.

2 was the best in the series. 3 was very close behind, a 9 out of 10, and is more action oriented. I love the ending of 3, and I'm referring to the entire 2 hour finale, not just the final dialog of just a few lines. But I'm probably in the minority here.

@RBenns2

 

Well, 6 Feet Under certainly did close well. True Blood in its final season so far, hasn't been that great, honestly - I don't really like where it's headed so far, either.

 

My complaints w/ ME3 were...

Spoiler

 

Granted, I ain't played any of the ME3 DLC's, either. 

 

Other than the crummy + disappointing as hell end, ME3 was great.

Sorry to bump this, but did anyone else get a new copy? It looked like the shrink wrap was just torn off so it would be "used" as there were still shards of plastic wrap stuck on it. Also, the seal was fully in tact. I didn't know GS ever did that.

Knowing my luck with past orders I'll get a scratched up disc only copy.
