I wouldn't go that far, but I am also glad the ending is how it is. However, what is your opinion on the kid, I seriously had no idea why the hell the kid was the AI, I think a keeper would have been more fitting. I also think this kid is the reason so many people are annoyed with the ending - I think it's brilliant regardless.
Personally I don't think the kid was
the kid - it makes more sense to me that this was merely the form this higher force has chosen to show to Shepard. If this being has the ability to dip into people's psyches, this is the first thing that would just out of Shepard, with all of his mental dreams n'all.
I'm not 100% sure that the kid was AI really, either - although I might have missed something. I felt it was more a case of it being an even higher force than the Reapers, something that designed them. Basically, it represented the closest thing to the concept of 'God' that we could hope to understand - adding a new level of mystery to ME's universe that I didn't see coming, but did enjoy. I've no idea what it really is, but for whatever reason it set the plan in motion, overseeing the Reaping process repeatedly for thousands and thousands of years.
