Wait a damn minute, they really used old assets like old Menu UI? I would have thought they would have at least update everything in the game including a new home UI, shame really also what is up with loading? Man, I have so many questions, not interested, I rather just play the old version. Also, how is this remastered or whatever the fuck this is? The visuals look the same, Jesus this is not it. This is why I applaud Capcom for their remakes/remasters of Resident Evil 2 & 3.

It may not be an amazing leap if you played it on PC but I played it on x360 at I presume 720p, at sub 30fps (sometimes sub 15fps) and with some weird AA solution that just made the jaggies look 100x worse than no AA.

Looking forward to playing again later at 4k. The music alone is giving me goosebumps.

Looks like the PC version with some graphics mods. Though I think the gameplay is a bit smoother.

The transition from 30fps to 60fps would have brought me back. They are great games and that doubled-frame rate makes all the difference for me. All the other updates are an awesome bonus. I never did complete Mass Effect 3. I think all the backlash around release sort of soured me on pushing through to the ending.

Yeah this is super depressing to be honest. It’s my favorite trilogy ever in gaming but I thought they had done more than just slapping some new textures and light sources on the 360 version. Everything looks so dated.
Now I certainly hope they can get the fps boost magic working so it’ll be solid 120fps on Xbox, that would get me to replay it, or maybe if the PC version gets some nice mods.

This release is getting a surprising amount of crap.
I've never seen so many people call a remaster out for not looking improved enough - let alone in a case like this, where the team has gone back and updated so many features, assets, and gameplay mechanics.

The only way this release falls short is if you are comparing it to the epic scope of a complete remake or overhaul, in the vein of Resident Evil 2: Remake or FF7: Remake. As a "remaster" of a title, it doesn't get much better than this. Often we are given nothing but a fresh coat of paint to go along with modern display resolutions & frame rates.
Here, they have also gone back and added assets, smoothed over gameplay controls, updated the user interface, and even edited some of the level design.

Frankly, you're coming across as ignorant if you are going to call this release minimal or lazy.

Those are remakes. This is a remaster.

I expected better, this is ridiculous, all they added was 4K assets, and the loading that is still on the game is laughable, it's an old game, why does a game that is what more than 5 years still have a loading time for new-gen, I can understand if it was on last-gen. But come on, we are in a new generation these stupid companies claim little to no loading screen.

Yeah this is why I think XSX is the version to get. It will very likely load much faster, have 16x AF and 120 FPS support. This is the downside of running PS4 games on PS5 BC mode. Benefits are lost.

So I’m just going to assume you know nothing about how video games actually work, but loading is a very complex thing and reworking how a game loads is a very complex thing, that can require you to rewrite massive amounts of the engine. This is a UE3 game. It’s not going to have instant loading no matter how fast the storage. It’s just a remaster. It’s fine.

Don't tell me what I already know, this is not an excuse. So buzz off no one asked you.
Dude, you posted your opinion on a public forum. You asked everyone.

And he's right. I mean, if a remaster isn't what you wanted, I suppose that is fine. But if we are talking general standards in comparison to the rest of the industry, this certainly meets the expectations of a remaster and then some. Man, I wish they'd put this type of love into the Metal Gear Solid games.

Look at the conversation between the Major and Shepherd here around 10:00 and IGN new version around 6:30.

The new version looks garish in comparison. Offensive even.
Skin textures, for example, are better on the remaster. Overall textures are better...

Plus the orig game was always too dark at times. The devs even mentioned it in one of the trailers for this version.
Now the game is atleast where they wanted it to be.

Lots of dumb people around here recently. Just plain ignorant. I dont expect everyone to know everything but they seem to relish in their ignorance which is bizarre to say the least. Bioware has been completely upfront about the changes or lack thereof. They pointed out why they didn't push for a full remake. They have spent the last few months listing in excruciating detail all the enhancements brought to the game and even how they did it.

I love demon souls and re2make but they are full $60 titles for one game. You are getting three for the price of one and they have a lot more quality of life improvements than most remasters that just do a simple resolution and fps boost and call it a night. Looking at Nintendo here.

Hell, Nintendo is just about the charge $60 for one remaster. No a.i upscaling either.

Sorry but there's dark lighting and then there's that. It was like you closed your eyes and opened them just a little and see the world through those slim openings in the original, now it's more like Noire lighting with actually seeing what you are looking at.

I find your preference the offensive one actually, for a lover of cinema like me; cause even at high contrast dark lighting it lacks so much detail in the original.
