I liked it
So did I. Pretty sure I've had this debate in this thread before, though.

So far as the ending was concerned, the choices weren't much different in terms of ending presentation. But in terms of storyline, they were drastically different. That said, the ending wasn't particularly remarkable, and could have been better, but I still liked it.
Thought the game itself was a hell of a lot of fun to play through as well.
My biggest gripe is that I felt constantly disadvantaged if I didn't have Vega/Garrus/Ashley in my team. All the other characters had minimal HP and their skills/firepower weren't enough to compensate for it. Doing the Grissom Academy mission on the Insanity difficulty setting with EDI and Liara as teammates is infuriatingly difficult. But it's just one example of how the Biotic/Tech characters were marginalised in favour of the soldier characters.
The backlash was just fanboy rage. Didn't really affect the mainstream reviews other than the usual posthumous crap that they put out - like ooh maybe the previous game in the series wasn't the best game eva after all, but oh look this new flashy one is, please give us more freebies, exclusives and review copies oh big computer games company.

Vimes tells it how it is:
Max Payne 3. About as fun as Max Payne 2, but about 100000000000 times more irritating.
So many random set pieces where you end up using a completely different weapon and the one you had vanishes and your 'buddy' is ****ing useless. It ends up being so much trial and error and basically being railroaded into dying regardless because of the lack of painkillers. I used to almost always have a full compliment of painkillers in Max Payne 2. It doesn't seem to know whether it's supposed to be about picking people off with the magic cover objects or charging about guns blazing (which usually results in death as soon as you stop moving side to side, until then you can be almost unhittable)
Actually no the fun level reduces to about zero in the latter areas. Because the paramilitary are ****ing invulnerable most of the time, get up almost ****ing instantly after you've hit them in the head and face half a dozen ****ing times. Every ****ing subsection you have to ****ing do about 10 times to get through and each time you get ****ed over by the ****ing invulnerable ****wits who almost insta-****ing kill you when you pop out to aim from ****ing cover in ****ing slow motion you ****ing start off again with ****ing prank weapons and **** all painkillers. The game actually ****s you over again for getting ****ed over. It is basically designed than once you've been ****ed over you have to get ****ed over again multiple times before they give you one ****ing extra painkiller and slightly more ****ing ammo, but still the same ****ing ****e weapons.
What a ****ing crock of ****.
That's quite an expletive-laden post.
As far as AC3 is concerned, I've been in the same boat as Heath regarding the ease of combat and lackluster story line for some time now. That said, the DLC is pretty cool. Basically, George Washington is a bastard as expected, but Connor (obviously not called Connor here) develops a pretty nifty skill where he's able to cloak himself from hiding spot to hiding spot and summon wolves. Creates a much more of a stealth environment that's been missing in this game. Can't wait for episode 2.
