Freedom Force Universe

IGN touts Freedom Force vs The 3rd Reich's Rendering Goodness!

After Irrational's Bill Gardner stopped by yesterday and showed them the latest build of Freedom Force vs The 3rd Reich, the scribes at IGN were good enough to post their impressions. The article spends a lot of time gushing over the graphical improvements over the first game, such as real-time lighting, quadrupled texture resolutions and the ability to attach special effects to characters (like flames spouting from El Diablo's fists as he flies around Patriot City!). According to IGN, the new effects "enhance the look mightily" and "All of the lighting effects for structures are amazing, but when the special effects for each of the powers start flying around, the glory of their improvements become apparent."

Check the piece out (along with a passel of new pics) at IGN.com.
