    Soo... they're just getting really bad a porting console games now?

    Graphics are not impressive in this game... infact I'd go so far to say that the weapon fx and explosions are underwhelming.

    It is possible that for the PC release, they may include higher res textures, and further draw distance, with lighting effects extending further.

    Can't say I'm impressed.
    The Mass Effect games started good and endend as an dissapointment for me, same has been for the other games in their series such as Dragon Age 1, 2, 3.
    The company has gone from making impressive Rpg's to mediocre games for everyone and their dog, thus not appealing to the ones they did before...
