  3. Really bad lighting system?

I'm not sure why but the entire lighting system is a joke. The lighting improve sometimes but can get worst. I've checked the config utility showing i have Cinematic Lights setting on 3 and Spherical Harmonic Lighting on.

Here's a screenshots album:

Anyone have this issue?

My game does not look like that. I have all the settings as high as they can as well. Your images look way too dark.

I've played through that segment a few times to get a feel on how the classes perform in ME3, and I have to say I haven't seen lighting like that either.

Have you got the newest drivers for your video card, making sure its not overheating and etc.?

Seems like there's an odd lack of diffuse light there...
One can only wonder at how such idiocy invariably comes to power.

Also make sure your monitor is plug in.

I get that too, it's part of the engine, if people aren't seeing it then, well, some people *like* the endings.

Odd; my game looks nothing like that with max settings. To those having an issue, are you running the latest drivers for your respective video cards? I don't know about AMD, but I know nVidia released new WHQL drivers that shortly before the ME3 demo was released.
