With all these rapid hitters, if you arn't behind cover you quickly get mowed down... but there is no god damn crouch button! the only way to cover is to press the all encompassing space bar which could pretty much do ANYTHING random while up against something. It pisses me off and makes me wish I was playing MW3.
I'm feeling the same way. I hate the "unlimited enemies until some checkpoint is reached" tactic they use. It just keeps spawning enemies until some criteria is met. As the years go by, I buy less and less games. I think I'm just getting old and tired of gaming. Don't get me wrong, ME3 is a good game, but my patience is much lower with games these days.

I agree that they are using the space bar for too many things, but I haven't come across any unlimited spawn areas on normal and I'm a decent way in. Some areas have a ton of enemies, but I'd bunker down and they'd stop. I think they will throw a ton at you at times to encourage power combining. A singularity throw/warp combo can clear a squad, saving time and ammo.

I believe the early mission where you collect the 2 reaper artifact samples spawn unlimited enemies until you click your ship.

Funny thing, if you join a hacked server and use the money, that you receive, you'll get banned from the MP and in some cases even the SP or the DLC content.

That's probably the case, I think I found another towards the end. It's annoying, but I can understand why they did it to give the feeling of overwhelming forces. After finishing the game last night and getting the best ending possible, I can say, re spawning enemies should be the least of your worries. Terrible endings. I hope there is DLC that gives a bit more closure. (I bet the DLC will be flashbacks to other lesser missions Shepard completed in between major missions.

I really think it would have been a better story if the original writer didn't change projects mid ME2.

Yeah I had just read about that, explains a lot. The first game may not have been as polished gameplay-wise but the dialog and overall story were much better than ME3. I still like ME2 though.

This game is just as fun to me thus far as ME2. Haven't played but two hours thus far.

just finished it. but i chose the left hand option.

i saw the other endings on youtube and they are all the same with different colours. i am also dissapointed in the endings. could have been so much more awesome, emotional, powerful like the main game storytellling is sad panda

hate the way it dumps u back onto the normandy with an earlier save point to allow continuation of playing too. doesnt feel right. should have also had a bit on the ending where the council use the lazaras project on you again.

I do hope bioware continue the ME story/universe though one way or another. i found it gripping. they should do what bethesda did, create a new engine and continue the series. the engine was looking quite poor in a lot of areas.

It also looked amazing in some areas. Maybe you need a better PC wysiwyg so you can turn up the details and AA/AF.
