Graphics Issue with Mass Effect

Hello People

Very minor problem but its starting to get on my tits.

On the 'cinematic sections' of the game, where you take over the dialog, the shadow edges on peoples faces are distorted and broken and have a habit of flickering. the rest of the games is beautifully smooth.

Now am i being picky or is there somthing i can do to fix it?

I use a BFG OC GTX/260 so dont normaly expect such distortion

thanks in advance

Not an answer i'm afraid,but i had exactly the same with my 9600gt and Vista.
Also my sons xp pc and an ATI 1650 pro had the same issues,so i assume it's a programing problem.
I had the latest graphics driver but i didn't download the latest game patch which normally solves these sort of issues.

You could try turning off dynamic shadows in the options. (It will obviously make the whole game look flatter and less realistic)

I've noticed the same glitch you're talking about and found this suggestion on

wouldn't hurt to read the whole guide.

(Having said that I think I'll suffer the small glitches for the overall niceness of the shadows)
