Is 3 worth playing or is it just a waste since all i hear is complaints about the ending.

I didn't like it compared to the first two, then again I also liked the first one a lot more than the second so I'm probably the complete opposite of who they where marketing the game towards.

Yes, it's worth playing if only to get some closure. Everybody nags on the ending when it isn't even the biggest problem in the game. It is horribly written, dialogue is cringe worthy. The cutscene in the beginning with the councilmen almost made me put the game down.

I think it's the most polished game play wise from what I remember. Ending is kind of a bummer, but I feel like everyone's reaction to it made ME3 out to be much worse than what it was. Also the Citadel DLC is pure class and one of the best parts of the whole franchise.

On the other hand, it is the only ME I haven't played through more than twice so take that as you will.

The entire game is an ending, and has some of the best moments in the series. If you pass on it because of some whining about the last 5 minutes it's your loss. Seriously, the Mordin/Wrex quest series... arguably the best the series has ever been in terms of writing and choice.
Yeah I got faith, but sometimes fear it just weighs too much,
I don't want to feel, cold winds blowing through me like an empty touch.

More like the last two hours. The entire thing was building up to be a bigger and more epic version of ME2's suicide mission but it wasn't even close to that.

Rest of the game is fine though and the coop was a lot of fun.

I liked the way it went till space boy showed up. Honestly if they'd just deleted that part and called it an ending after the conversation with Anderson and had the Reapers being blown up then it would've been all good. Or maybe switch the order around on those two events.

It's worth it if you don't mind spending the extra for the DLC. Typical EA, but From Ashes should have been in the main game. Leviathan adds some interesting backstory to the ending and Citadel is the true ending to the franchise. Omega is... eh. Kinda fun to revisit Omega again but forgettable. Definitely not worth the price alone, but if you can pick up the DLC as a bundle or something might as well.
What's a knockout like you doing in a computer-generated gin joint like this?
