ME1/2: Wow the Reapers are undefeateable how could we possibly beat them?

ME3: The Prologue Mission was LITERALLY: Operation recover Dues Ex Machina.

I thought it was Priority Earth.

Maybe, I don't exactly remember since I played it when it first came out and drank away my memories of it.

All I remember is that it was the Mars mission and that mission was very early.

It's not a deus ex machina if it's at the beginning and lasts literally the whole story.

Yeah, I'm definitely not on the hate ME3 train. I really loved the game. However, the weakest part is definitely the convenient "We discovered a device to stop them" thing. Would have been better if hints were dropped of the device's existence when you met Virgil in ME1 and incorporating a "Try to find the location" quest in ME2, then actually finding it in ME3. The way it was done just felt like building up an impossible situation for you, then sudden deus ex machina.

It may have been introduced early in ME3, sure, but to me its a series as a whole. Its always the ME Universe to me and not 3 separate stories.

Well, I agree 99% of the time a DEM applies to the ending but I don't think the overall idea of one - "whereby a seemingly unsolvable problem is suddenly and abruptly resolved by the contrived and unexpected intervention of some new event, character, ability or object" - is ruined over WHERE it takes place.

Some hidden anti-reaper device buried under Mars (which BTW is right next to the human home world and (I think) Liara was around it too!) is a major DEM based on the previous games' attitude about the Reapers.
