Games As I made very clear in my thorough review of Mass Effect 2, I'm a huge BioWare fan. This relationship got very, very cloudy when BioWare released Dragon Age II, a rush job with no story and atrocious gameplay. Mass Effect 3 looked like redemption - until I hit the terrible, terrible ending. The criticism of the ending has been so immense and consistent, BioWare is contemplating changing it. Of course, this story is riddled with spoilers, so be warned.

If you destroy the mass relays at the end, and the destruction of a mass relay causes an explosion big enough to destroy solar systems (like the one in Arrival).

The destruction of a mass relay by smashing an asteroid into it does. On the other hand in the ending you don't know that the energy contained in the mass relays is released in the same way that as if they were smashed into an asteroid.

It seems to make sense that whatever the crucible did caused mass relays to unleash a big wave of energy in a form intended to interact with and disable only certain things, such as machines. And a portion of that energy is directed into a beam towards the destination relay, causing it to do the same thing in a chain reaction.
