BioWare went further by allowing independent commands for all allies similar to Mass Effect 2 and 3. As for ME2 ammo drops have been altered for better balance and the MAKO from the original game has better shield recharging and new thrusters for additional speed.

Improved handling

Physics tuning improved to feel “weightier” and slide around less 

Improved camera controls

Resolved issues preventing the Mako from accurately aiming at lower angles

Shields recharge faster

New thrusters added for a speed boost

Its cooldown is separate from the jump jets’

As for Shepard, you can take the same face throughout the trilogy with more options for female Shepard. New Achievements have been added to the trilogy. DLC content will be provided through the in-game process instead of automatically unlocked like in the original.
