Please...ME1 weapons were rated literally by numbers and once you had access to the Spectre gear there was no more decision to make. Streamlining useless micromanagement like that is only a bonus. And besides, the game was always a shooter-RPG hybrid. I'm glad they decided to lean more towards the shooter route in the gameplay this time.

GT does a great review on it, but it seems like they didn't even touch the PC version. Some thing I saw in the review that I didn't see on the PC version.

a) blurry texture reload. Yep, I just happeend to catch one..but it was indeed a texture that appeared blurry for a second and then cleared up. It was on character switching or something that the user was quickly tabbing through 3d models. This is non exhistant on any modern pc.

b) frame rate issues. I saw ALOT of slow frame rates, couldnt really tell if it was just a crappy video capture or flash video sucking (Saddly GT does not use the new accelerated flash codecs), but if thats the game on xbox, yuck.

c) crappy shadows. I was actually impressed that most of the self shadowing in the pc version was actually pretty nice, no funky fuzzy edges. xbox360 version seemed to be filled with fuzzy shadows.

Just got Grunt to join my party last night... again I really like his character. There was so many cheesy cliche personalities I could have imagined him getting once I opened the stasis tube but he turned out to be very cool.
