    I - uh. Geez. I honestly prefer the original. The lighting and color grading is more interesting and enhances the mood/atmosphere really well. The remake has more realistic lighting, but it just looks... flat and generic. At least they updated the character models and textures, that part looks better.

    You know, as much as I enjoy seeing an update to Mass Effect's graphics, I'm disappointed at just how dull everything looks. So much color has been lost that it's hard to enjoy the beauty of the new graphics. That's unfortunate.

    I like how this is clearly much more than just a texture update, they are actually really putting work on the engine and making the cohesive experience Mass Effect always deserved,

    For those complaining about the graphics being sterile, there will 100% be a ReShade made on Day 0 to bring it back to exactly the way you guys want, so no worries there.

    Who the hell is the lady? Commander Shepard appears only in the second half of the video.

    For once I wish they would do some sort of Big Box PC release for a game like this.

    Count me among the unimpressed. Were the people who did this remaster at all involved with designing or developing the games to begin with? Because it sure doesn't seem like it.

    Made me want to play the trilogy again. But I will not pay what they are charging for a remaster. I've already downloaded the 3 games on ps3, and the graphic is good enough for my taste

    Well... Mixed bag, I guess. But overall not terrible. I've tried so many times to get into this series, I'll give it one more shot with the trilogy pack here.

    In the majority of the comparisons, I thought the original looked better. By a lot. Sometimes the new textures were nice, but at 1:11 in the video... unnecessary boob-clothing-texture whatever it'd be called. The original looked natural, the remake looks like a fan wanting to sexify some more by having the latex-suit look and over-use of cloth folds in the texture that just look silly. that 1:11 part *really* annyoed me actually >_>
