I'm surprised actually... At first I was 80 percent excited about this, then I saw the early access game demo, and I became 100 percent excited. Now though? I'm only about 95 percent. If I wasn't a fan of Mass Effect because I've never played it before, and tried this demo out, my opinions wouldn't have changed. It's not the game play, but my question is, how old really is this demo? Now, the one thing I have to nit-pick is something that may annoy people, and maybe for good reason, or maybe it's justified, I don't know. Although I wouldn't want to use the word ugly to describe the graphics, because they're not necessarily ugly, but when it comes to expectations and when comparing to the first two?
I'd say (somewhat) ugly is a good description for the majority of it. It's oddly different from the other two in very many, though subtle ways. I'm just wondering if this is an old demo, and it's not a representation of what we're supposed to expect and receive in the actual game. I'm just wondering why they'd show that as a demo if it weren't though. Maybe they know fans will buy it anyways? Did anyone else notice it? I hope so, 'cause I know it to be true, and if no one agrees, then I feel like I'm going to be mocked for complaining about something others don't see, when it's apparent. All I'm saying is that I hope the great game play and story has fine visuals to back it up. I'll be surprised if you don't notice, and I'll be more surprised if you don't care. I'm not a "graphics whore", but still.
EDIT - Fuck. OK, sorry. I just went through it (a day later, just now) on Insanity. My problem with the graphics, were somewhat justified to me in a way, in most others though, I feel I was a little harsh and the things I said weren't as bad as I thought they were. I'm not entirely sure why I felt the way I did, maybe it was because it was in 720p since my brother likes to put the 360 on 720p, but I always like to put it on 1440x900, which looks better of course, and that may have been the problem. Anyways, there's still some small problems that I feel by the time the game comes out, they'll will be fixed. About Insanity, did anyone find it a lot easier than ME2? I did, I only died once at the very first part because I didn't exactly understand the health off the bat. Also, was the ending part fixed just for the demo? 'Cause the thing Mordin and the female Krogan were in had the health go all the way down, but it never blew up, like the only way to "fail" was to die. Alright, well! Hopefully the small problems that are in the demo get fixed for the final product, but I'm again 100 percent excited.
