I loved Mass Effect 2 and because of it bought Mass Effect 1 which I was also very good but not quite as good as 2. I had heard bad things about the 3rd game so waited for the price to drop before purchasing it. Mainly the criticism seemed to be aimed towards the ending. I actually didn't mind the ending it was the rest of the game that was disappointing. There was no end boss fight, no special missions for the other characters like in 2, very little variety to the fighting as it mostly involved attacking Cerberus. I could go on but overall not great.
