Eurogamer.pt published a video showing some gameplay from the Mass Effect 2 demo for PS3. Enjoy.
wow the graphics are above average the gameplayt will be so fun using the duralshock 3
Lots of this video makes me continue to be suspicious of the LoT screens. Especially with regards to Jacob's face. I did notice very jagged shadows when you're very close to a character. Such as when Shephard is first getting up from the bed in the medical bay, the shadows on the bed look really bad. You can definitely see that PS3 still has issues with certain Unreal Engine elements, but the games look to be at least on par with the 360. Definitely can tell the differences in that blacks are much blacker and whites much whiter, which is why in the 360 version Shephard looks older, more rugged than what we see on the PS3 version. This makes the PS3 armor/robots look sharper, though, but doesn't always make mixed textures look the best. Not sure if it was due to the video or actual gameplay (still downloading the demo and others today), but some issues with Miranda's hair being artifacted kind of threw me off.

That's a good comparison and assessment. Thanks for the link, jack_burt0n. Much better than the one over at LoT. I didn't know the shadows on the 360 were that bad when up close as well.
these reviewers lied so the metacritic review can match uncharted2. The game tries to be a cinematic set piece like most ps3 exclusives but fail at it. why it fail- The camera is too close to the action and most of the time you can only see from the waist up. the camera needs to come back a few notches. It's like watching a movie too close the screen and you can only see a portion of the cinema. it's a 9.0 at best.
never judge graphics based on your Monitor, your TV will tell you the truth about the visuals, unless you play games on your monitor then ok but HDTV gamers out there never ever be shocked or disappointed in graphics when you see them on you monitor, 9 times out 10 it will look better or worst.
That really depends on the quality of your monitor.
TV and Monitor are pretty much the same in term of gaming display, resolution is more important.
Day 1 for me, the demo alone was good, and proved Bioware actually cared towards something
The demo was quite fun, but during the cutsene with Miranda and the Illusive Man... there were quite some jaggies. The gameplay was top-notch, but it will definitely take some time getting used to the controls, and use of squadmate abilities.
I have this game for the PC. You know... the superior version of them all.
NO ONE CARES about ur pc or ur version.
lie. you don't have a pc.
Still wish you could skip those scenes. Maybe I missed something, but I think I mashed every button trying to skip scenes [again]. Kind of wish they'd put it in for those of us going to do three or four runs of the game and do not wish to see them again.
Loved the graphics and controls on the PS3 with the ME2 demo, if they release ME on bluray(PS3), I will sell my 360 copies of both and continue the series on PS3, if not I will have the whole series on 360.
Me2 demo seemed ok i just think the character feels like a tank since how i couldnt turn while running if u could turn while running it would improve things i guess.
Ah, please stop complaining. The controls are just fine... you remind me of those butthurt people that was saying RE5 sucked, because you could not walk and shoot at the same time. The game was made like that, it has a purpose.
I guess i got the bad side of one of your Faces Two-Face. lmao
RE5 sucked controls wise they made RE4 on HGH you heard me there is a reason more changes will made made for RE6 ME2 on the other hand is a fine game no need to change capcom needs to wake up and take care or their AAA games dark void anyone?(and than the guy from capcom said he was surprised the game didn't sell i mean REALLY)
Yeah I agree with you there. Even turning a little bit would be nice. I can turn while running, why can't the amazing commander?
Its still a bioware title, and unless they team up with ND to make a new game the "feel" of the game will always come second to its other aspects.
Is smooth framerates not important anymore? Having played ME2 on X360 and demo on PS3, it was disappointing to see the demo has poor framerates and some screen tearing. I read other PS3 fans are hoping the demo is based on an old build. I'm guessing ME3 engine is still in beta which is used on ME2 on PS3. Bioware still has a year to improve ME3 engine for ME3. If this is true, then the final ME2 code for PS3 version may not solve the framerates issue.
Whoever disagreed must not think smooth framerate is important or still think final ME2 code for PS3 will fix this. One thing is obvious. Many PS3 gamers have been waiting for ME2 and want the hype to be true on the PS3 version. We'll see when the game comes out. I do hope PS3 version at least runs as good as X360 version.
only noticed screen tearing on the cut scenes. None in game. Framerate seemed fine to me to but I might have missed that. Shooting seems better than the first game. Wasn't sure if I was gonna buy this when it came out but it might just make the list now
day one for me again, have the 360 version but it's one of my favourite games so it's defiantly worth a re-buy
Demo locked up on me at the starting point where you go get Joker off the captains deck or w/e, right at the door where you cross the area of the ship thats open to space. So I had to watch the cut scene over again but, other than that no problems. Maybe some jaggies here and there but I could care less. I don't hold graphics as my top notch reason for playing a game and I won't now. This demo has me sold on getting ME2, I'm looking forward to the experience. I just wish I could experience the first one and have the ability to carry stuff over to the second one like XBox users did (if I heard right?). Anyway, the game looks fun :) and the demo was good. I didn't do the second part tho because I don't want to see the spoilers.
lookin 4orward to try this on my ps3
demo made me more interested in me2. nice music and it seems to have a good story.
i bought mass effect for my laptop, hopefuly i will find some time to finish it one day, is it long by the way?
IMO the demo was a disappointment. Wasted my time downloading it.
I have the PC version but without any dlc ( So I plan to buy the PS3version. The demo was amazing and showed a lot what the game has to offer. I noticed some slow motion moments on the demo when the frame rate probrably dropped a lot. I wonder if it has abettter frame rate then the 360 version or not bc I did not see it running on the xbox360
It would be cheaper to buy the DLC, and you wouldn't/shouldn't have to worry about those frame drops. Just saying though.
That I agree with you but then I would miss getting 100% of the achivements again( trophies that is). Some games are worth buying then twice... A few finalfantasy games,Fallout , elder scrolls etc offcourse do that if you have extra cash,time and no other game that interest you at the moment.
man i couldn't put down the demo. it was so good that made me play all night. now they need to port 1 over and release 3 on ps3 too!!
If the review code looks like the demo Ill get the 360 version. Im disapointed, Ive been waiting so long for the ps3 version and it isnt up to par with the 360 judging by this Demo footage. The reviews cant come soon enough.
both versions look the same
