That last shot, that guy's face is SO nice..

They're trying to demonstrate the HDR rendering effects and the improved polygon counts throughout the game..

Yeah, they really revamped the game. One of the notable features is the use of HDR (High Dynamic Range) lighting. Mmmm...

I just got done playing it and I have to say it's awesome looking. The only thing that was weird is that I was invincible. I dont understand why. Is it like that for everyone else?
