We thought WipEout HD looked decent enough when we posted the first shots of an early preview version, but thesenew shotsshow the game has come on in leaps and bounds.
The textures have more... texture, and the lighting has been massively improved by the looks of it.
Hopefully all these improvements won't come at the expense of the luscious 60fps smoothness in the demo we have here.
You can see videos of that in action (and in comparison to our old favourite, WipEout 2097) in an earlier feature.
We're also hoping the handling has seen as much attention as the visuals, because we thought it was far too tight to be a believable hovering ship. 2097 had the handling spot on - why change it?
