so....has anyone pick this up? im looking for input on how mass effect 1 runs on ps3
Visually I feel as though it is running much better than it did when I played it years ago on 360. The frame rate still drops, but not nearly as much. There are still some hiccups in the visuals during cut scenes, but they seem better, and I may be crazy, but the textures seem much better. Unfortunately, the loading times still suck, and when it auto saves the game pauses, but those were issues on the 360 as well, and basically that was just left untouched. I would call it a slightly superior version to the 360 version. If you have never played ME1, but you have played ME2 or ME3 on the PS3 you will probably feel like the game is clunky, but it is simply a lazy port. Take the opportunity to appreciate having the entire trilogy because each game is different, and I think they all have extremely high points and extremely low points. Technical issues were the big bummer of the first game. The second game just felt like a part 2 and was more concerned with setting up the last game. It also started to move away from RPG, but I liked the gameplay of ME2 the best. ME3 felt like a full on action game. Story was flying by, almost everything RPG was gone.
