Downgrade in graphics for Mass Effect? (56k warning)

25 replies 10 views Edited Apr 7, 2007
One of my best friends got a 360 and I'm looking forward to playing this game with him. I did notice some vast changes in the characters appearances and details though. Check out these screenshots.




Thats a huge change..keep in mind this is what it originally was supposed to look like below

Was the first screenshots made on high end pc's or something?



^ The video from yesterday doesn't even look close to that.....oh well hope its fun atleast
Heres the link to the video http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=18375&type=wmv&pl=game

I think it's just bad lighting.

Massive downgrade.

Not that it looks terrible or anything but it's clear that they couldn't sustain the imagery that they had before while keeping gameplay smooth. So much for all that boasting about the graphics that so many people did.

Those are actual screenshots, but they were not approved for showing, the wrost one is a player created model and a very poor representation of the game as BioWare said.
This should be where that ugly block face is.

I remember an article about that and many other recently released screenshots. Someone who worked for whatever company is making that game took those screenshots from an area of the game that is not even close to being complete. That is why the graphics are terrible in that screenshot.

edit: im talking about the bottom screenshot.

Because they aren't finished the game yet? Dam, you HAD to make me waste my 3000th post, but, at least it's in the same thread as MASS EFFECT FTW
