If you're anything like us, you've been playing Mass Effect Legendary Edition this weekend. You also may have hazy memories of the original games, with Mass Effect now almost 14 years old - how in the hell did that come out in 2007? It feels like yesterday.
Mass Effect 1 was clearly ripe for a proper remaster, then, and for the Legendary Edition, BioWare has pulled out all the stops to bring the first game in the series bang up to date, with up to 4K resolution, a solid 60fps frame rate, speedier loading times, improved textures, new lighting, and more.
You can see how good Mass Effect looks in our comparison video below, and if you're curious about how Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 also stack up with a nice bit of spit and polish, you'll also find that here. Expect a lot of lovely swipes, comparing the original trilogy to their spiffy, overhauled Legendary counterparts.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
