So did I! I saved it too a few days ago!!|
Everyone's ending will be different, here is how mine happened. First I did not know that you only had to kill the main dude to win, I played thinking I had to take everyone out. Well, everyone bundled in to the last room and took out one of the elites, and caused a bit of damage. After two turns 3 people got mind controlled. One lay dying, and my chose one's nose was touching a mind controlled solder's nose, having been shot by her and with 1 hp left, no medikit and reliant on a pistol. It was game over, I had given up. Then the lone survivor, half wounded Katarina Malakova, the veteran who had been in almost every mission from the beginning, a legend throughout the organisation, stood up and looked me full in the eye. She held her gun in the air and shouted, "this doesn't end till I say it ends.......this, THIS is my time!
And she leapt over the wall, (it was a 15 foot drop, personally I would have worried about grazing myself), dodged point blank reaction fire, from an elite, made it to sighting point and let rip on the main dude. She needed 10% to critical in order to bring him down. She got 10% critical. She brought him down. Cue cinematics!!
I think one of the strengths of the game is how everyone's story is different and every ending is unique.
