I'm going to be honest, I thought Mass Effect sucked, I didn't bother with 2 beyond a few hours and I didn't like it either. I recently tried to play it again on PC and I still didn't like it, but I was curious with a whole new reboot to see if they would make the series into something I think is any good.
However all my issues with the series aside, I keep hearing everyone saying "this looks really nice".... what? The environments look no better than Mass Effect 2 on PC, there is barely any difference, especially with the interiors, they look like for like, I seriously thing they just took assets from previous games.
Bioware have been been good at level design, everything is so copied and pasted, the environments are barren, static copy and paste wastelands with a few poorly animated NPCs walking around. The lighting is really harsh as well, there is barely any handcrafted detail to any thing, it's like the PS2 era of level design in HD. You go from a level in any modern game and compare it to this, you'll see so much impossible detail in the other games, then you see these and they're horrible.
How can any one think this game looks good unless their only experience of Mass Effect is on a 360?
