10Excellent Content. I highly recommend getting it prior to getting to the end of ME3. Otherwise you end up with a game that deserves a perfect 10, but with an ending that makes it unplayable. It adds mostly context that was missing in the original, but is critical to actually understand what was happening in the end.

If your issue with the original ending was to do with a lack of clarity on what the consequences of your choices were, or that it lacked closure then this MIGHT improve the ending for you I suppose. At least that seems to be the majority consensus at the moment, which makes me re-evaluate what I thought of the take back movement to begin with just a little bit.
The choices you make are a little more fleshed out, the catalyst gets a bit more exposition and how your team ends up back on the Normandy for example.
However if your issue with the original ending was that it was thematically inconsistent with the rest of the entire game and that the choices you were given, and the events surrounding those choices were nonsensical then I recommend that you avoid (or just watch all of it on youtube like I did).

- Nonsensical (Space magic)… Expand
