you might need to double check star wars rebel strike there, it has the most impressive lighting on the console, and extensive bump mapping of any gc game, and the texture resolution is definitely above average, it had self shadowing, the only other game I can think of that got that out of the TEV is Overlord Dark Legend (actually one of the most technically impressive wii games)

Okay on lighting, but there were other effects that were relatively weak or non-existant. That is NOT a put-down for the game. What it did push had to make room somehow. As for extensive bump mapping, sure it had it, but it doesn't look as, well, bumpy as on RE4 or Twilight Princess. Again, that is NOT a put-down, just noting one went for quantity, and the others went for quality.

Finally, textures were above average on RE4 and TP as well, plus character models on the RS games weren't as detailed, even though they had the polygons and full effects. Again, that is NOT a put-down. Those games used quantity over quality.

This isn't a pissing contest I'm trying to make any game win at. I'm pointing out that NONE will, because games DO NOT USE ANY ONE GAME SYSTEM IN THE SAME WAY.

A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.
