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.

And all of those three endings have different variations depending on your actions in ME3, depending on how much time you invest in the game (like ME2, I guess, where your crew would only survive if you do all the side quests).


Variations, really? You mean those five-second-long differences in the final CGI animations that you won't even notice unless you compare them side by side?

Fact of the matter is, your war assets don't matter at all unless you want to headcanon your own ending after the animation. This is a lazy design.

Ohhh so an ending is only different if it has hours of different long CGI ?

The CGI's are almost copy and paste ( like in all the game ) but the "text" ( history ) is completly different !

There are 16 different endings, but all of them are just a variation on the three ending I listed (reaper control, reaper destruction, merging), but then depending on your war preparation, you get a better version of each, ranging from destruction of earth to shepard survive.
