Well, firstly - remember that if you want to compare it to the XB (power wise) you have to select a XB game from its 2nd/3rd year. Using a 4th/5th year XB games gives a flawed perspective.

 

I thought one of the advantages of the Wii was it's very GC-like architecture, so that devs could easiely learn to tap it's power based on their knowledge from the GC, no?

I think we can safely throw this theory out as most 3rd party Wii games don't even look as good as the good GC games.

 

Do we even know if GC was pushed to max?

I don't know, but there were GC games with great graphics like these:

This is off topic but I was trying to figure out how to get my Wii System code. I've looked everywhere except the Wii Shop Channel. I didn't see it in any of the system options. Thanks to anyone that helps me.

 

Thanks for help for some reason I never checked the address book. 

 

Anyways, on topic I thinkt he Conduit will look pretty good once it is released.

Unless I'm missing something , from my understanding the Wii was never marketed as a console with any graphical capabilities. Is this just buyers remoarse that the Wii isn't outputing high end graphics ?

No, its not buyers remorse, its that Wii Owners are sick and tired of people casting down Wii graphics so much that its laughable... The Conduit looks much better then anything on the Xbox, and I don't mean to cause any ruckus, but in my opinion it looks better then many 360/PS3 launch titles.

Buyers remorse is when people start doubting their console after their 3rd one breaks down, or when the console owners rely on every blockbuster title coming out to bring their console to greatness, instead of just playing the Damn  thing! :P

Im a wii owner and im not sick of people dissing the graphics.

Theyre terrible, unless theyre cartoony.

I love say the art style of wario or galaxy etc, but metroid, godfather, bully, and other more serious graphics games are all laughable.  still fun, but horrendous graphics.  

 



Last year's game of the year turned out to be Silent Hill : Shattered Memories (online GOTY was COD 6).  This year's GOTY leader to me is Heavy Rain.

Wii Friend Code: 4094-4604-1880-6889

i'm not even going to bother with this thread.

oh....shit

Yeah. But it is missning shadows or something?



As a loyal Nintendo fannieboy, I must say either: You have a low IQ, or you just hate games. The actual ball looking Conduit in the game is the most revolutionary thing I have ever seen in FPS's. So to all you Wii haters, that's the amazing hook of this amazing game.



Quiet Storm = Best Gatorade flavor EVER.

The art direction lets it down. Really, really bad art direction.

 

This.

Though in my opinion, Metroid Prime 3 looks better than the Conduit in both artstyle AND technical prowess.

I really don't understand the hype behind this game, but apparently people are excited for it.  I hope it turns out well for them.

Really? I think you're alone in the universe with that though. Metroid Prime 3 is beautiful, period.

I kind of like the feeling that one government building one video was in (looked like aa library with a d dome or something), and this is set in D.C., isn't it?  If so, perhaps they'll emphasize those elements more, apart from the videos we've seen.

To lavish praise upon this title, the assumption of a common plateau between player and game must be made.  I won't open my unworthy mouth.
