Three-word nonspoilery review regarding the infamous ending:

They. Fixed. It.

IMO, they did a fantastic job. I ran through it with my Garrusmance playthrough, and I may have teared up on many occasions, especially when Shepard orders the Normandy to pick up the injured Garrus and Tali, and he just keeps reaching out to her as she leaves. Oh, and when Kaidan has to convince Joker to leave, oh man, how can pixel people have such heartbreaking expressions? Playthrough-specific loves: BABY KROGAN OMG. Quarians without envirosuits, just chillin' with geth! Kasumi and Keiji! Also, EDI hugging Garrus at the end. The spontaneity of it was fantastic. Dang. That was good.

Also: new music! I wasn't expecting that. Heh, they also tweaked one piece so it doesn't end on such a dissonant jumble of chords at the end. HIGHLY SYMBOLIC. Don't ask how I noticed that.

Wow. Okay, I'm sure people will still complain about this, and I'm sure a lot of their complaints will be legitimate, but let's face it: the endings to the first two games weren't exactly the height of sense-making cleverness. But they had heart, and now this one does, too. I'm a very happy camper.

So many plotbunnies...
