    have the feeling that the camera-viewpoint will suck
    nevertheless, it looks ok, at least considering it's mostly just a trailer of basic stuff

    You're bull-shitting right?? [​IMG] The Last story looks 10x better than this. This is a late gen Wii games and the textures look like Twilight Princess. Not acceptable! Especially since this is a first party Nintendo game. Seriously, I expected better!

    Since when does every game that features hacking and slashing "God of War-ish"? I really don't get it.

    Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles
    Dead Space Extraction
    Monster Hunter 3
    WWE All Stars
    The Last Story
    The Conduit
    Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
    Metroid Other M
    Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2
    Super Smash Bros Brawl
    Goldeneye 007


    ...They all look better than Pandora's Tower. There's simply no excuse. Ive seen Wii games that look very close to first gen 360 games (the ones listed above & at least on my 19 inch screen where things aren't totally stretched out) so yeah, I'm not fond of this laziness.

    I'd say they look pretty similar. TLS had lots of horrible textures everywhere but the bloom made it less apparent :>.

    Please show me what awesome super cool graphics you can do on the Wii please!

    Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles: Not a first party game
    Dead Space Extraction: Not a first party game
    Monster Hunter 3: Not a first party game
    WWE All Stars: Not a first party game and it looks shitty
    The Last Story: Developed by a third party.
    The Conduit: Not a first party game
    Metroid Prime 3: Corruption: One of the few good looking "non cartoon style" Nintendo games
    Metroid Other M: Developed by a third party.
    Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2: Perfect example of prwlr's point.
    Super Smash Bros Brawl: Perfect example of prwlr's point.
    Goldeneye 007: Not a first party game and the graphics are far from impressive

    I think prwlr's point was that people will easily criticize Nintendo games for "bad graphics" and say "BUT LOOK HOW WELL THEY DID ON SUPER MARIO GALAXY/MARIO KART/DONKEY KONG COUNTRY RETURNS/ETC", even though those games look as good as they do because they completely lack texture and just spam lighting effects.

    EDIT: Basically any games that use detail and texture on the Wii will look noticeably worse than the games that don't.

    It doesn't matter if most of the games I listed were from third parties, the fact is NINTENDO, the guys who made the Wii, who are supposed to know the damn thing inside and out, are getting schooled by third parties when it comes to how to properly use your system in the graphics department. As for WWE All Stars, dude, that game has great lighting which I don't even see in Pandora's Box. Fact is, the Wii has been around for a while, we all should expect better than this. I don't care about HD graphics but damn, I want my system pushed. It's no different than the fact that most devs don't use DL-DVD disc. That's also shameful and as for the guy who asked if I was a dev, lets just say I probably have more 3-D modeling experience than you. What bugs me the most about the Wii is that it's like a puzzle that nobody wants to put together. One dev makes great lighting and another does reflections and water right and another does well with particles, ect. I see bits and pieces of what the system can really do but nobody is taking the damn time to learn from their competitors and actually create something stellar in which the Wii is more than capable of. -Nuff said!

    The fact is GANBARION (Third-Party).

    You're expecting the graphics to look on a PS3/Xbox 360 level though. I don't really see how this game looks any worse than Dead Space Extraction or Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (which is a great looking third party game, FYI). Even the great looking games like Dead Space Extraction suffer from poor quality textures. They're good for the Wii, but are terrible by any other standards. The models look good here and the textures are about equal to everything else I've seen on the system in terms of good games.

    I'm not looking for HD quality textures but Ive seen good textures on Wii and this is far from it. Go check out My Aquarium, it's a prime example. Hell even some of the textures in The Conduit were downright beautiful. I was actually able to walk up to many walls and items without major pixelation. It can be done, it's very possible. Hell pre-render parts of the damn game if you have to. I don't see why most Wii devs don't use that technique any more. Resident Evil 0 was a beautiful game. If there's one system in which pre-rendered graphics would benefit a lot of games, it would be the Wii.

    it doesnt really matter on the wii (graphics). The reason for a good Wii specific game is tht the controls use the wiimote and nunchunk well. Ofcourse, a storyline is always important.

    I'm not expecting this to be as good as The Last Story but I'm probably going to try it out. :)
