What would you say is your favourite class/specialisation and from which one of the 3 games did you think it was better implemented.

Well, most of my Sheps were Soldiers...especially in ME1...assault rifles and heavy armor was the type of play style I wanted so Soldier was a no brainer...

My main character has been a Soldier throughout the series but with Mass Effect 2, many of my other Shepards changed classes...made sure to make at least one of each...still Soldier was my favorite (Assault Rifles + Adrenaline Rush)

Mass Effect 3...unfortunately, I haven't played as much as I played the first two ME3 I've only played Shep as a Soldier twice and as an Adept once (for my Insanity playthrough)

I've played enough multiplayer and have become better acquainted with all of the powers though to believe that Soldier is not my favorite Single Player Class in Mass Effect 3...

Assault Rifles were a big reason I had stuck with the Soldier class for so long but ME3 made all classes able to wield any weapon so that was no longer a factor...

So now that weapons and armor weren't limited to any class and I can base it more on powers and play style I have to go with Engineer...even though I haven't played Shepard as one in ME3...

The Engineer has powers to deal with any enemy type...Incinerate for Armored enemies, Overload for Shields and Barriers, Cryo Blast for freezing or slowing down groups of enemies or weakening tougher enemies...

Combat Drone is also pretty useful and can be used as a distraction, it can be deployed behind enemies to flank them/drive them out of cover or it could just be another ally gun on the battlefield...

So, even though I haven't played as one, yet, I think the Engineer in Mass Effect 3 is probably my favorite class in the series...

The weapon and armour skills where great in the first game and I certainly missed them, they made soldier in particular a great class. I went with Soldier first in the original but found Adept the most fun on my second play, I wasn't expecting it to be as much fun to play with as it turned out to be.

Mass Effect 1: Vanguard made the most sense because of the tech ability decryption and the cool powers. Vanguard made less sense once tech abilities were scaled back not to include opening locks and the like.

Mass Effect 2: I used Adept the most seconded by infiltrator, I only used soldier once.

Like Manj I didn't play ME3 as much but it was pretty much the same as ME2.
