Definitely, this fixed my only problem with Mass Effect-- the textures that looked worse than anything should. This fixed that and made this the start to a wonderful gaming experience, which feels much more like it should. Thank you!

After playing the trilogy through, I was still itching for a replay. When returning to Mass Effect 1, it was pretty shocking how different it felt. Not only was the combat strange in comparison to the more streamlined sequels, the game actually looked pretty dated (this coming from someone who has no issue with the graphics of Neverwinter Nights, the first one). However after messing around with the Texmod based solutions, I eventually decided the twenty minute launch time and frequent texture glitches weren't worth the enhanced visuals. This mod finally grants the best of both worlds, superbly enhanced textures and no launch time increase! Thanks for giving Mass Effect the textures it deserves! No, that sentence isn't referencing the ending debacle... :P

The game is way more pleasant thanks to those new textures, and fortunately the graphics artefacts don't waste the game. Thanks !

100% stable and awesome, now that I followed the instructions in the readme.

Great texture overhaul. The difference is most noticeable on Garrus, but I really liked the admirals uniforms as well and Benezia is really sharpened too though you don't see her much. Improved Wrex texture was nice too. Now that the mod is stable it's a direct improvement over the default that I'll never be without.

The shadows are a little blocky but this is obviously an engine problem, not something thats the modders fault. You can make it milder by increasing the depthbias, (something the readme mentions).

My goodness this mod has allowed me to return to this quite dated yet awesome game, making it look even more polished and brand new.

A must have? Hell yeah, even with the large download. They are improved textures after all.

Well made mod, gives the original Mass Effect the look it should had from the beginning - well at least on the PC
All the work with the mod is well done, though it still needs to be "polished" in some parts (such as Altahe and Noveria)

Brilliant mod that brings ME1 closer to ME2/3 in visual terms. There is nothing bad I can say about this mod.

One tiny thing I noticed is that Kaidan's teeth now seem to appear dirty brown/yellow for some reason, but the mod creator was kind enough to look into it and clean them up as much as he could. That is literally the only thing I did not like.

Other than that the quality of the textures is amazing, the difference in npc clothing is brilliant, and the amount of work this must have taken is enormous. The mod creator definitely deserves all our thanks for this brilliant project, as well as donations imo. Bioware could learn a thing or two from this mod.....

I would have given more like 9.5 but my account was just Created. This is a really great mods. Make the game looks Beautiful and in the same style as the sequels. Without forgetting the easy installation with music game picture Really professional. I wish you would do the same for mass Effect 3 because the actual PC version is less good looking than mass effect 1 with this.
