Excerpt: The Good : Combat is better than ever. Gone are the dull, repetitious planet scanning and safe/pad cracking minigames. RPG elements are well-balanced. The Bad : Completes the ME story arc, but does so in a vacuous, unsatisfying way that makes your decisions in getting there meaningless.
Conclusion: I loved Citadel, and I’m looking forward to going through it again with my second playthrough, seeing how it fits when integrated to the game as a whole. For the last piece of DLC in the Mass Effect trilogy, this is a perfect goodbye, and a final high for the series.
Excerpt: The Mass Effect series will be remembered as one of the greatest RPG sci-fi epics of all time and even though the final game in the series caused a huge uproar over the internet due to the ending, the pros still outweighed the cons.

Excerpt: It will be an impossible task to talk about Mass Effect 3 at this time without running rule over its series of disappointments.
