Plunges you into an all-out galactic war to take Earth back from a nearly unstoppable foe - and how you fight that war is entirely up to you.

The best game in the trilogy as far as pure gameplay and mechanics go, nearly all issues I had with the gameplay in other two games have disappeared in this one and it's generally the most enjoyable one for me to replay.

The story is also great, a solid continuation of what previous entries were building up to.

Characters and their interactions are very believable, going through all 3 games you can really grow attached to your squadmates. It's a shame many squad mates from previous game cannot join the party here if they survived. Most NPCs are also written very well.

I have never seen the non Extended Cut endings as I got the game after it came out so I missed the drama but despite that I find that the endings are still... underwhelming and out of all 3 I don't really like any.

A note on DLCs: I have them all, they're mostly fine but hardly truly necessary, Leviathan and From Ashes do provide some expanded universe lore but that's about it really. Citadel DLC I don't know why that exists, it's so tonally off from the rest of the game that I came to truly despise it.

A very very good game. The ending however, left me unsatisfied with many questions. Recommended to ANYONE who likes shooters/rpgs.
