So those who have beaten the game? What did you think of it?
I kind of hated the design of that final level. I got so turned around I would up back at the skyranger at some point.
I found the alien voiceovers a bit annoying as well.
Overall though, minus those quibbles, I liked the ending. Felt it set up a potential sequel nicely.
In fact, for a second I thought the ship would crash in the ocean, setting up a new Terror From The Deep.
I hit the final level with a Hover Plasma SHIV, Heavy, 2 Support, Assault with maxed offensive psionics, and a Sniper. No one died (played on Normal).
