Well Iíve been playing ME3 for about 14 hours and so far I have mixed feelings about it.
Pros Ė Well itís ME. No stupid ďmini-games,Ē like decrypting locks or computer terminals or endlessly searching for minerals. The searching is still there but now you scan parts of a system (not to bad) to find various goodies. The enemy combat AI seems better as enemies move around laterally more making them harder to hit. Traveling on the Citadel is simple so far as elevators take you pretty much everywhere. Imported character plus squad mates get lots of skill points to spend and you start with good Paragon/Renegade bonuses already (I donít know yet if the difficulty scales to your level).
Cons Ė So far when you run around the Citadel none of your shipmates go with you so you donít hear the banter between them. The overall use of surround sound doesnít seem to create as much ambiance as in ME and ME2. You still have to run all over the ship to talk with crewmates between mission (I miss the campfire in DA). Had to swap out to disk two for the very first side mission I did and then switch back right after finishing it (not happy about this at all).
Undecided Ė The Galactic war is an interesting concept but I donít see it having a very interesting impact.
Different but donít care Ė Weapons have upgrades again and the interface is fine but I donít get any big thrill out of them like sniping at bad guyís feet in ME with HE rounds and watching them fly into the air.
