Here are 8 short clips of Mass Effect captured on a videocam from the recent "IgroMir 2007" consumer electronic entertainment expo in Moscow, Russia.
developers keep pushing the envelope in games. this game is a good example of that. this one will steal my christmas. after playing call of duty 4 i have to say this is the best year ever in videogame history. games are getting better and better each year.
and I don't care what the masses say. It seems a little to much like Star Trek. I keep waiting for data to come out and start blasting away.
maybe the finished game will look better.
neogeo i don't care about what u think. u keep bashing good games, and u know what? it doesn't matter. ur opinion means nothing.
I want to start playing this game already, btw if you read the prequel there arent much spoilers(except a somewhat predictable verdict)
game looks awesome...
why do the people that get to see this stuff take such crap videos though?...JUST HOLD THE DAMN THING STILL...that isn't a hard thing to do...
i love bioware games especially kotor, but this is starting to worry me. First off i think the gameplay looks pretty good, might get repetitive but knowing bioware probably not. As for the so called graphics, i think their sub par. The overall graphics are crisp and clean and nice to look at but i think animations of the faces are terrible. Yes the lip synching is great but look from the mouth up its static and almost creepy the ways the eyes move. It looks like there is no emotion and i can't stand it. No i'm not a fanboy i have a 360 and this was on of my most anticipated games but i'm not so sure anymore.
you do know these are second hand youtube videos right? I am sure this game will look good on my 50in dlp....no doubts in my mind!
I completely agree...
texture wise...the game looks great...just like every other UE3 game made so far...but the human facial animations are pretty poor...it looks like they didn't do full facial mo-cap...only used it on their mouths maybe...
with 20,000 plus lines of dialogue or whatever, that makes sense...and it shouldn't hurt the game...also, most of the time you are talking to aliens and stuff...and how would you motion capture that?...so its only the humans that look 100% lifeless I guess...too bad it didn't have the level of facial animation contained in Uncharted though...that would have been awesome...
I am still on the fence about the gameplay though...sometimes it looks cool...other times it looks pretty boring...this is basically the game to get me to buy a 360...a lot is riding on it for me at least...
@Installsheild, it doesn't use mo-cap but rather an animation system that works universally with all languages ME is going to be released in(there are way too many lines and in then different languages to mo-cap for). In my opinion its doing its job pretty fine, its not Uncharted but it doesn't remove me from being immersed either.
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahhah ahaha SNOOZE ALERT!!!! Looks SOOO damn boring!!!! And whoever says OMG MASS EFFECT facial expressions... they look like a CARDBOARD CUTOUT.. Get a grip on REAL REALITY FANBOYS. The 360 CANNOT make faces like the ones in Uncharted and Heavenly Sward... not even a little bit close... let's be honest... Haha so funny. Everytime I see it, it looks worse! Look at the faces on video 3 when their talking HAHAHA . Looks JUST LIKE OBLIVION. NO BETTER, NO WORSE. Uncharted PWNS Mass Effect BADLY... in the looks/animation departmant.
faciall expressions is nothing buit a gimmick do knwo that right ? for gaME LIEK tomeradier/unchareted/kameo/ra chet and clank/ u know kids games maSS EFFECT IS the best lookign game this year and will get goty these clips even do very veyr low rezzz look amazing.
i'm tired of hearing this useless bs you spew out of your mouth. You are one of the most biased people on this site. Personally to say mass effect looks leaps above uncharted is simply stupid. Uncharted looks better in my opinion or at least the same. The art styles maybe different, but the sheer amount of effects (wind blowing through the trees causing the branches to move) and animation help uncharted to stand out. Yes the amount if dialogue is fantastic in ME, but that isn't good enough for me. Other than that i haven't seen anything else phenomenal about the game. It's seems like the were trying to play it safe with the whole story and some gameplay elements as it borrows many from star wars, but we shall see. Hopefully its better than what i've seen i really want it to be because i still have hopes, but don't be a little ignorant 10 year old boy and start a flame bait.
all about shooting this and that,but is it that is not so different than any other shooter games besides from shooting.RPG are more than just shooting in space I mean c'mon look at oblivion games.
how many shooting RPGs are there again that were great games?
@Fu1985, you obviously dont know what you are talking. so gtfo
great game, can not wait
me away >:P
OMG THIS GAME FOR A 70HR RPG SHOOTER looks amazing the 360 is a marvelous machine that has alreayd proven its power so all i want now is more of the same class games .
Game looks kick-ass and will be kick-ass. Forum closed :D
While it's not as nearly flawless as Crysis, it is a very beautiful game and may quite possibly be the best looking game on al consoles, until Allen Wake(?) I May wait for Allen Wake to come out and buy a 360 and that game when I do.
