I’ve recently been going back through games that I’ve reviewed already with the intention of reworking old reviews to be more in line with this site’s current standards. That’s basically a fancy way of saying that I’ve been playing old games again with the hopes of making this site’s early reviews suck less. Already I’ve reworked my Arkham City and Final Fantasy 8 reviews, and I ended up playing through Mass Effect again in the hopes of eventually getting around to tweaking its review. Whether I actually will or not is still up in the air, but I at least took the time to make a bunch of new screenshots. Since the game doesn’t really have any antialiasing to speak of, I downsampled the original 5120×2880 images to the far more reasonable 2560×1440, which makes them look surprisingly good.
