Not literally every choice, but a lot of them. It's a great series. Make sure to do every mission you can. In some instances, not doing them is definitely considered a "choice" both in the game you're in, as well as later games.


yeah i guess with certain characters and endings? I played 2 and 3 so far apart i dont even remember what I did in those or even if i Finished 3. I think i ended up getting garrus killed. Dont want that to happen this time.

I’ve found Hardcore to be a good balance. If I play like I know I’m supposed to, I’ll generally be fine. If I do something stupid, I’ll usually die.

Currently working through ME1.

I’m level 37 and I haven’t even done any of the main quests (Noveria, Feros, and Liara mission).

Trying my best to get all of the elements, data discs, Asari writings, etc.

Doing that has already brought in 1 million credits.

Knocking out almost all of the side missions before even starting on the mains.

Playing on Veteran.

Just finished Virmire. Started on veteran but upped it to Hardcore along the way as things became way too easy once I got to upper level equipment.

Virmire is so f’ing awesome. Won’t go into spoilers for the first timers in this thread, but that mission is so well done.

At level 40 and just started the Liara mission.

They say that you can’t reach lvl 60 on the first play through.

Let’s see if I can prove them wrong.

re: Mass Effect Legendary Edition Discussion Thread
I actually chose to use the new way of leveling on ME 1 to try it out (max out at 30 rather than 60).

Just finished Virmire and am level 27 (which i guess would scale to 54 on the normal system). I was able to get the Spectre master gear at lvl 25 so i’m assuming its the same, just condensed. I hope there is enough left to do for me to get to lvl 30 before the end of the game but i cant remember.

I’ll tell you what though, the enhancements to combat and the boosters on the mako have made this playthrough so much more enjoyable!

As much improved ME1 is, playing ME2 feels like years ahead in terms of quality... I had a good time playing ME1 tho!

Also, remember to sell everything before finishing the last mission on ME1 since your credits carryover.

Don't worry about selling them in ME2, because they don't carry over...At least not for me.

If credits carry over, I’m golden.

Already at 10 million.

The collectible quests were really good for credits.

I’m doing the Virmire quest now, then Feros.

Currently level 52.

So i had like 7 million credits and just finished ME1 a couple of hours ago. Loaded my save into ME2 and i now have 700k… thats better than nothing but i’m pretty disappointed.

re: Mass Effect Legendary Edition Discussion Thread
I definitely had over 800K when I started ME2.

Apparently it’s some combination of your credits (like 10% of them), your level, and the amount of surveying you did in ME1.

Oh well... I am like level 25 and just started Ilos. Have around 2.2 million credits and did very little surveying. I would survey every planet in the system that I currently had a mission/side quest in, but didnt go out of my way to survey every planet available. And I skipped all of the collection quests.

I have surveyed every world, collected every collectible, will hopefully be lvl 60 when done (level 53), and will have 10 million+ credits.

I’ll let y’all know how it turns out.

Just started Feros.

I just looked it up and 10% of your credits are transferred over with 999,999 being the max.
