These small changes don't sound like much, but when you combine them all with slightly sharper graphics, controls, and faster loading times, playing Mass Effect felt less like a watered down console port and more like we were playing a great game that's finally come home to the platform it was always best suited for, the PC. The PC version will release on May 27 and while the retail version won't include the "Bring Down the Sky" pack, you'll be able to download the extra missions for free once you've installed the game. In the meantime, we've got some fresh screenshots and gameplay clips. Take a gander and enjoy.
