LOL YOU'RE COMPLAINING THIS MUCH AND YOU HAVEN'T EVEN TRIED OUT THE GAME?!?!?!? [/B]How can you even say what the other people have said in their metacritic review are valid?!? That's just proof positive that you're not thinking rationally, you're biased and you're speaking from a point of ignorance!

Funny cause you do the exact same thing in BF3 threads without even playing the game either.

This used to be a great rpg now it has turned into an on rails shooter. Just because your in love with the game doesn't mean others are. Sure the citadel is more flushed out and alive, maybe more than ME2 but around the same as ME1, but ME1 also had Noveria and Feros while ME2 had Tuchanka and Illium. Again many fans were hoping to see races homeworlds in more detail, I was looking forward to this since ME1 and was severely disappointed. The game is also flawed in several ways eg. scanning of systems and running away from reapers. There is no point in even running because if u come back the reapers will still be there. You might as well let them catch you get the game over screen then resume scanning again as there are no reapers.

ME3 has a comparable amount of squad members to ME 1.
degree and trash what is truly a WONDERFUL game. I get it, you want more squad mates, you want some Krogan on your team and you want a free day-1 DLC but you’re exaggerating

Krogan are one of the most favorite races in the game by fans, not having one in your squad is unacceptable. Metacritic reviews speak for themselves. I also remember ME2 offering a bunch of free dlc via cerberus pack, while Bioware gives nothing for ME3. This is one of the most disgusting money grabs I have seen in a long time.

I think this sounds even worst for me3 tbh. Day one expansion pack makes it sound even worst.

Lets rehash shall we?

You complained that the ME DLC does nothing for the story and is a bunch of microtransaction garbage. Yet when the ME2 DLC DID forward the story a bit you complained that they were forcing you to buy said DLC in order to know what's going on. I said you can simply find out the new plot additions by checking out youtube. Notice i recommend this for learning the new plot only

You haven't experienced the game yet and that's the point so stop trying to backpedal.

Uh no. Nowhere do i talk like this guy does, about BF3. You just think i do. Go back on all my posts. I never slam BF 3. My main issue was Origin. Remember our conversation last time? Nowhere would i try to challenge your 1st hand knowledge over my 3rd hand hearsay. That would just be stupid of me.

Meanwhile he's not only doing that about ME 3, he's trying to tell act like he knows more about being a developer than Lordikon does.

LoL. On-rails-shooter? The spacing of ME3 isn't much different than ME1. There are some corridors you fight down and there are a LOT of wide open areas with 2 levels for you to use. ME 1 almost NEVER had 2 stories for you to play or sneak behind the enemy.

Seriously stop exaggerating. The game mechanics are practically identical with the only difference being that ME 3's action is far superior.

Go play ME 1 again and go play ME 3. The citadel on ME 1 is barren by comparison. There are far more NPCs on ME 3 and the background is FAR more busy.

And yes there's only 1 hub. I don't see any problems with that. You seem to be one of those guys that like the game so much that you want them to essentially copy the previous game. But if they did then I bet you'd be saying they're milking it. You seem stuck on this idea that Bioware HAS to provide you with a certain number of hubs, that they HAVE to give you all races to play.

That's not where the story took us, simple as that. If we visited every homeworld and had a hub on every one of their planets it would seem forced and contrived all for the sake of appeasing a few fans.

Wrong. Go away, do a mission and come back. The game even tells you this

Sometimes you get a Krogan, sometimes you don't. I'm ok with that. Every game doesn't have to have every race. I don't want Bioware to be handcuffed into bringing in every race at every game. You wanted to play a Krogan and your disappointed, i get that, but you're going overboard with the nerdrage over such small issues.

Sorry I can't take metacritic seriously anymore. People just spam it with reviews based on their feelings and not their actual judgement of the product. Metacritic is a joke now.

LoL. Disgusting? Again, lower the level of exaggeration. I dunno about you but personally if they're going to provide a worthwhile squadmate, i'm going to want it sooner than later to play in the game. Kinda pointless if I've already played through it to add a guy after the end.

The Cerberus pack provided nearly NOTHING. I remember exactly. It gave a few garbage weapons and a garbage suit.

Okay I decided to close it for an extensive period to let the heat cool off for bit.
Folks,please remember we are here to have a discussion not to fight with each others. Both sides can express one's opinion without of course the use of personal attacks,rude behaviour and name calling.
Also please watch the language in this thread.

Reopened.

People are surprised a multi-platform games does this?

Wow.

Buy console game for PC, then PC gamers are upset over being treated like console gamers. Interesting behavior to say the least.

Was ME 1 even on a console? ME 1 seemed pretty PC-centric.

To be honest, I am shocked that for a ME homer like yourself, you didn't even know that ME1 WAS a console (xbox360) exclusive for a while.

ME1 was exclusive on the 360 for a good year or so.The PC version was outsourced to a third party developer(i..e it was ported to the PC) and released 1 year later.
