I hated the ending. And yes it is as bad as people are saying.
However, the game as a whole is great. 99% of the single player campaign is totally worth the admission price. The co-op multiplayer was surprisingly fun. I still play it often with my brother and a few friends. It's a lot of fun. If you loved the first 2 games, you should play 3. It's great, for the most part.
This. The game is outstanding right up until the last 10 minutes.

I bought Mass Effect 3 on ahunch. I completed it.
The following day, I bought Mass Effect 2 because ME3 was that good and I wanted some more.
I am currently replaying ME3 with the ME2 save and I see all the differences and impacts the ME2 story does to ME3.
It is a great game with an excellent story, graphics, voice acting.
The ending may be strange but the more I enjoy the game, the more it is a non-issue to me.
If you played it 1->3 I think you would find that different. You get attached to the characters/story/etc so the ending is a real kick in the guts..
I wasn't angry about the ending. I just felt.. empty

The ending was brilliant. I was disappointed at first but if you join the dots with the ME2 DLC Arrival with the ending of ME3....you'll understand all about the indoctrination theory and Shepard.

The ending made much more sense, after you see how it all works
Except that this is PURELY a user contrived explanation of the ending. While I hope and pray that this is the way they decide to play it, this isn't lore
I truly truly TRULY hope it is. I was gutted at the end..
Play it. I got TONS of enjoyment out of it. As a couple of people have said, it's an outstanding game right up until the end.
The only thing I suggest is once you have finished it, go look up the "Indoctrination Theory" on the Mass Effect forums.. It's a must read post-game.
