this game is going to run like pooh on n40's....so be prepared. I read an interview with the developers 8 months ago and they said they were making the game with next gen cards in mind.

I can't wait! This game looks awesome and will hopefully breathe some life into the currently stale RTS genre.

I think it looks better and more detailed without that HDR lighting.

You want the truth ? i believe the same .. but still it might look much better in motion just like FarCry did if you recall.

looks like they are using it all wrong.
they are LOOSING the detail in the bright clouds, and they are brightening the shadowed part of the building where the detail is already visible as it is..

I spose for the best implementation you want really dark areas, where you wouldnt se squat without HDR, and really bright areas (outdoors fex), where your screen would be almost white without HDR..
but then the game would require HDR to be playable.

I agree, totally. Looks alot blurrier and blah with hdr. If thats the kind of difference we'll see in motion, i'll be leaving hdr off
