    So I know I'm late on this since the game has been out for AWHILE now but from what I can say. I think its the best looking game on the 3ds, and I'm big on graphics and I can't believe I'm saying this but I think this comes close to Xbox 360 graphics, with 3d on this is capcoms best work yet, they cranked up the graphics, for this new resident evil and leaving mercenaries simply a launch title in the dust. I really hope another game that comes out comes as looking good as it.

    It must be for the shaders the 3Ds has, and man, there is Monster Hunter that looks better than the Wii version, and Castlevania too, most for the 3D effect they gave ande the dept of the background. Those are, for me, the best looking games so far.

    Personally for me, Kid Icarus Uprising leaves me stunned with how pretty it is.

    MTFramework is incredible in how scalable it is. The 3DS version of Revelations has some pretty high quality models and textures, and with 3D off it uses 2x MSAA. And it maintains this at a constant 30fps, only dipping in the loading areas.
    The 3DS may not be a powerhouse, but it's decent enough.

    I'd love to see if Capcom's new Panta Rhei engine is scalable too, another title on the 3DS with console-like graphics is Nano Assualt/EX, holy moly that game is beautiful

    Yep, best 3ds game I've played, Such great music too!
    But in terms of graphics... its prob not the best, but it sustains the best frame rates that I've seen with that level of graphics.

    The textures in the game were quite poor but yeah it ran great and the 3D was pretty good too

    I guess no one bothered to care about how pretty Kingdom Hearts looks on the 3DS.

    Amazing, just, wow... the only difference would be obviously the image resolution and the detail of the textures, but the atmosphere given to both versions is still the same, also I note that the 3DS version has a little more of "light reflection".

    Yes, it does look beautifull, but nothing impresive since Birth by Sleep looks very similar, the only difference I can take of those two is the color depth, 'cause BbS runs at 16 bit color, and 3DS runs at 32 bit color, and yep, I know you can change that on the settings in BbS, but needs more horsepower from the console, thing that isn't really needed on the 3DS. And one thing that dissapointed me a bit from KH 3D were the frame rate drops with the battle system and combos.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one to notice this and maybe it's just PC gaming that's spoiled me but it seems like most games I own for the 3DS lose any anti-aliasing they once 3D is activated. Also what other 3DS games actually use mutli-sampling AA to some degree because it hasn't occurred to me to look into it yet..?

    I know that most 1st party games use it, and all of Capcom's games do.
    Basically the extra horsepower used to render the image horizontally twice when 3D is on is instead used for MSAA when the 3D, which is why it's lost when it's on.

    Power wise it's no way near X360 level, but lower res combined with a smaller screen and it can visually look good with a 2008 GPU filling in the gaps. With 3D cranked to the highest level, the visuals become even more impressive.

    Now if only they had a more impressive CPU chip, it could have handled better frame-rate or more AI on screen for some games.

    I am continually blow away by the amount of detail the 3DS can push. Kid Icarus is pretty impressive for the 3DS's relativity weak hardware.

    A better CPU would have decreased battery life, the current chip has a good power to battery ratio
