How long is the demo? Has anyone else tried it?

That comarison from LensofTruth was a good one. On this computer though (whichis admittedly pretty old) the Xbox 360 version generally looks too light for me.

You'll draw better conclusions from DF's videos. The demo has 2 parts, the beginning of the game and a mission halfway through the game. I didn't play part 2 because the game says it contains spoiler. The first part took me around 15-20 minutes to beat. There are a lot of cutscenes, it's the beginning afterall.

I saw unlimited praise for this game back in january, now all I see on gaf is people saying it's a corridor shooter as linear as FF13 and uglier to boot. It's ridiculous.

NeoGAF is a bunch of retarded keyboard monkeys with IQ equal to their shoe size. They'd rather argue semantics and stupid shit rather than assess games for what they offer.

Therefore, their opinions are worth less than horseshit.

Even with skipping the second part of the demo, it sounds like it's a pretty decent length. Why did I leave my PS3 at home? :(

Played the Demo, it's the first level of the game, which makes sense. I didn't have time to play the second level, but will later if anyone is curious for more information.  I just played ME2 360 last month, so I think I could make a relatively decent comparison between the two.

First and foremost I noticed that the "loading" icon moved from the bottom to the top right. This little change disorients me even though it doesn't matter at all.

There's a definite difference in the models.  I wasn't actually expecting it to be this obvious. Miranda's face looks so much better it's like playing a different game. She looks less like the King of Pop and more feminine. The clothes look smoother. Joker's beard actually looks a bit worse, in my opinion, it's smoother and less "greasy" looking. But hey, I'm nitpicking.  Jacob doesn't look too different, cleaner, but not a dramatic difference like Miranda.
Honestly, I can't stress how much the minor differences make. FemShep's model looks and runs much more smoothly and there's more detail to her suit and the backgrounds. It's more than something I can just point out to you in screenshots, it just looks cleaner, smoother, and more polished all around.

You can mess around with the character creation screen.  I made a (somewhat) identical version to my older Shep, because I wanted to see the difference.  The models with the hair back don't look nearly as bad as they do in the 360 version.  They hair looks more natural and the forehead isn't as large. I'm really happy about this, since the bun on top of FemShep's head was far and away my favorite style, but it looks horrible in-game in the 360 version.

The controls are a bit different.  Better. You use R1 to shoot instead of RT, the equivalent of R2.  This means the "shoot" button is a bit more forward on the PS3 controller and that you roll your finger back to change weapons and use Powers rather than forward.  I like this very, very much as I'm not a big fan of the placement of RB/LB  on the 360 controller.

PC supremacy.

Code:
Just kidding (but not really).

Also, ME1 and 2 are on sale for $10 a piece on Steam right now.

I never played the 360 version, I didn't notice some of the stuff you mention in the videos but I'll obviously take your word for it. I do like the way they adapted the controls so it plays like any other shooter on the PS3, that's a huge plus for me.

My old laptop died so I had to buy a new one, it's not a powerhouse (it's for work) but i decided to borrow ME2 from my brother again (my old machine couldn't handle it) and try it. Surprisingly it runs really well, very smooth even with settings slightly superior to the PS3 version, so yeah, guess I'll be playing the PC version afterall. I'm glad I didn't erase my ME1 save.

There's a certain difference in graphics (mainly the framerate is constant and resolution is higher) but not to this tune, IMO. Miranda looks just as weird as before, bad teeth arrangement and all. The extra detail comes from the higher resolution, nothing more. Graphics are good in some places, worse in others, but only tech heads or graphic whores will be able to notice.

One thing I hate is how some of the controls adopt the PS3's system settings and some don't, so I have to run around using X to interact with things and O to confirm menu options and dialogue choices. It's really distracting and annoying.

I had some troubles with the camera, but other than that I had a good time with the demo.

...I still doubt that I'm going to buy this game next month though, but we'll see.

I knew I was missing out on something special but man, this game is blowing my mind. I love how there are constant references to stuff you did in the first game. By the time I'm done with it I'm sure it will be one of my favorite games ever.

As a huge scifi fan I also enjoyed most of my time with the demo, glad to finally get the chance to play this, looking forward to next month.

I'm also really glad they properly adapted the shooting controls to our layout, I didn't expect that.

Leyviur : Hmmm, I was able to select dialogue options with the X button. Weird.
