I've always played the Soldier class since ME 1. Part of what made the soldier so versatile in ME 2 was the fact that he was able to utilize ALL weapons at his disposal. This added alot of variation the the gameplay as I was able to switch between the Eviscerator, Widow, Carnifex, and Mattock respectively. With this new weight and power cooldown feature, that entire concept is obsolete. Major dissappointment for Soldier classes. I'm starting to question how effective this class will be in the long run, and whether or not it can hold it's own on Insanity. Sniping with the Widow and using adrelanine rush was my favorite way to approach combat... it was also quite satisfying to charge in with the Eviscerator, hit adrenaline rush and blast enemies away. This is quite a let down.
