I thoroughly enjoyed playing through it and cannot wait for release. Shame us in the UK have to wait until the 9th
I'm in the same boat. After multiple playthroughs of ME2 I decided to give ME1 a try and didn't even last 2 hours. I thought I would've had some kind of advantage in ME1 because I had become so good at ME2, and it turned out all the keybinds were different, gameplay was different, menus were different, movement different...and overall it was just FRUSTRATING to play, a lot of things felt needless.
Call me lazy but I'm not going through all that just to catch up on the story.
The Genesis DLC for ME2 was probably the best addition. It fast-forwards through ME1's story and decisions in like 10 mins.
The rest I read up on the Wiki.

I highly doubt you will have that option
The whole point behind Paragon and Renegade is that the outcome is always the same, the means is different. And as much as you'd like to see both Alliance and Council burn, surely you must know that there's no such thing as "siding with the bad guys"? Either you are simply killed by the reapers (because their job is to destroy ALL intelligent life until only they remain) or you are turned into their next wave of collectors, mindless drones with no organs i.e. what they did with a handful of Protheans.
Did you want an option to get along with the reapers as their equal? Edited by Tippy - 2/20/12 at 4:08pm
