Yes, many tricks are used. Usually only the programmers or rather observant people notice it.

Still happens to this day - many games (even on PC) don't have full resolution lightning, shadows or transparency. Almost all 3D games use really low-res models or even just a simple .JPG for stuff that is far away. Then there's games that use dynamic resolution. Super visible in stills, yet barely noticeable in motion.
