Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC Review from Casually-Addicted.net

It’s almost a year to the day where I sat alone in a dark room trying to come to terms with the ending of Mass Effect 3. It’s a moment I often think about and the soul searching for answers to questions that shouldn’t have even been asked kept me thinking about Mass Effect 3 long after I should’ve been done. (EA, Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.5/10

Working on the trilogy, and a few hours into ME2. I liked ME1 ok, though I didn't see what all the fuss was about, but so far ME2 seems to have taken a few steps backwards. It's not terrible by any means, but I remain confused as to why this series is so highly thought of.

After ME2 it only gets worse , the first 2 were awesome but the the 3rd killed it

Well for me it was the first game in a while that really gave you the sense of control as if you're a part of the story. You deciding the fate of the entire galaxy, the relationships that form. It was just a storytelling masterpiece. ME2 did take a dramatic step backwards from ME1 but it set the stage for the good mix of story and action in ME3.

** Spoiler alert ** The constant mentioning of the ending is really starting to grate on me now. Ok I played through and watched the extended ending but I thought it was one of the most thought provoking endings to a game series I have ever seen.

I really don't get what all the fuss is about, is it because Shepard dies and if you're from America the hero can't die mentality?

What about all the choices of those you befriended and how your final decision would affect them, I thought it was inspired.

Maybe the games industry wasn't ready for a thought provoking ending even if I were or the original ending must have really sucked compared to the extended one? I would love to know.

"I really don't get what all the fuss is about, is it because Shepard dies and if you're from America the hero can't die mentality?"

Not one person that matters cared about such thing. Most people were okay with Shepard dying at the end. But a few endings where he lives should've been included for variety's sake.

"What about all the choices of those you befriended and how your final decision would affect them, I thought it was inspired. "

Nothing mattered in that regard for God's sake. You got to talk to them one last time before the final assault and that was it. With the extended cut, you got a crappy slideshow on top that barely explains what happened to any of them.

"Maybe the games industry wasn't ready for a thought provoking ending..."

If you mean horribly controversial, cheap and disrespectful by thought provoking then you are right.

Don't pay attention to them. A lot of them won't admit it but they decided to complain no matter what a long time ago. It's kinda funny to see the same people praise the ending of the walking dead when in the end ,no matter how great twd was, absolutly none of your choices mattered, and its "plotholes" were just as bad as in ME3 (which means not that bad and easily forgotten, but still there).
