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.

That's one of the major plotholes: no matter the ending, everybody dies. Why? The mass relays are destroyed. The galactic fleet you assembled are now all stuck in earth's orbit! They will never reach home using the conventional FTL drive cores (way too slow), so they will surely end up killing each other in and around the Sol system.


That's just speculation. How many people are in that galactic fleet? It's not a given they can't all manage to live on earth. Plus as they do still have FTL drives they can leave sol and colonize other systems.

The problems run deeper than that. The entire economy and communication system was built around the Mass Relays. Without them - no economy. No transportation of goods. It's like destroying all infrastructure and communication systems on earth - I can assure you, all-out war will follow.

Two of the species (Turians and Quarians) are not capable of digesting food from life evolved on Earth. At best, the food passes harmlessly (and fruitlessly) through their digestive systems. At worst, it triggers a possibly fatal allergic reaction.
