42% is pretty good for gaming. Look up some of the numbers on other titles -- when BioWare originally posted something about ME2's completion rate before this year (it was something like 49%) they were absolutely ecstatic.
ME2's completion rate after five months (the same period of time) was 56%, meaning that ME3 has a 25% drop in completion rate.
42% may be "pretty good" compared to the industry as a whole, but that significant of a drop from the last game in the series would be pretty worrying if I were Bioware.
