Interesting review, though some of the VFX screen caps do indeed look like they are 480i(or p) shots that have been up-converted rather than the alleged 720p. Shots like this one
, this one
and this one
look sourced from SD, where as shots like this one
appear to be 720p up-converted.
Guess it did come down to time, as I'd imagine it would have taken much longer to render the VFX behind Daniels
in HD than the Valakian City
