      2 mostly ignores them and then demystifies them with the retarded human reaper. 3 had to salvage that and was rushed as a result of 2 dallying in the terms of the main story line.

        The story went to shit way before the ending.

        It was supposed to be:
        >1. Exposition. Discover threat. First encounter.
        >2. Invasion begins. Genocide. Hopelessness. United, traditional armies failed. Narrative low point. Small glimmer of hope at the end.
        >3. Reapers won. Galactic Vichy France. Shepard is leading the underground resistance and defeats the reapers using a weakness that arises from their artificial, logical nature.

        It turned out to be:
        >1. Exposition. Discover threat. First encounter.
        >2. Collectors??? Human supremacists??? Ocean's Eleven???
        >3. Invasion begins. Genocide. Hopelessness. United, traditional armies failed. Narrative low point. Uhhh.... magic weapon I guess.

    I wish the dark energy/acceleration of universe destruction plotline was kept.

    And the reapers shouldn't have started already wiping out earth, the game should have literally been building the army to meet them before they get to the citadel or something, with the player detonating further mass relays in front of them to slow them down with Paragon plays being losing resources to evacuate early and Renegade plays waiting to the last second to cost Reapers more, so Paragon players ended up with a bigger fleet, while renegade players faced reapers that had already been slowed down and damaged by the speed bumps you left in the way or something.

      Is it just me or Garrus is not a very good character? I always thought he was amazing, but replaying the series with LE changed my view on him quite a lot. His character arc goes nowhere (He always ends up on Omega in ME2 and always gets to be military advisor in ME3, unless you got him killed), he never plays any major role in the story, unlike Tali and he never fucking shuts up about "muh old times". EVER. Why people still like him again?

            You need 5 specific points to achieve peace. Completing and saving Koris mission gets you 2 points, settle the Tali/Legion argument with a paragon/renegade speech check gives you 1 and don't let Tali get exiled in ME2 which gives you 2. I think there's one with the Geth fighters simulator but I'm not sure that counts. There's a additional 2 points to achieve peace if you destroy the Heretic Geth in Legion's Loyalty mission

    It has some of the highest peaks of the series but also the lowest. I actually don’t mind the Reapers’ motivations but they’re explained much better in the Leviathan DLC without the stupid Star Child. The extended cut also fixed the major problem of the Mass Relays exploding and not showing any epilogue, but still it wasn’t enough and should have been included in the base game from day 1.
    Everything about Cerberus and the control and synthesis endings was just retarded.
