    I'm looking forward to this game, but I can't help thinking the graphics seem really unimpressive.

      I think a big part of it is the animation. Looks similar to NWN, which I always thought looked very stiff.

        yeah, it's a shame no one at BioWare seems to realize how bad their animation is.

          Yeah, I totally agree. They did mo-cap stuff from my martial arts dojo years and years ago, but there actual animation stuff looks NOTHING like what we do. :|

        Maybe. Even the character models though...everything looks weaker than Mass Effect to me.

      I agree. But I think it's mostly the effects - they're really exaggerated. That one where the guys just explode in a shower of blood just looks silly.

      Probably it looks vastly more impressive when it's zoomed out.
