    I can remember when that movie came out it was some of the most amazing CG / motion capture ever. Now we have video games that look like that! Pretty damn cool.

    The thing about the 1945 Tokyo.....The reason that there are very few buildings is the ones standing are either stone or brick.......The whole of Tokyo and all of the other cities in Japan were made of wood and rice paper.....And we had fire bombed them to the ground.....The reason Hiroshima and Nagasaki were targets of the Atomic bombs is they were unmolested and we wanted to see just how effective they were......

    Modern games make Spirits Within look amateur. Just look at Metal Gear Solid V.
