    Wow.. the GFX are almost identical. Thats ridiculous, they could have saved themselves money and just made it for one console.

    Graphics may not make a game that much more superior if you compare it in terms of gameplay.. but you gotta admit. Nintendo did a very poor job if the DS looks pretty much like what the Wii does. Like.. c'mon.. Nintendo can do better than that.

    I'd take the portable version over the Wii thanks.

    Because Nintendo was obviously involved with the development of a Final Fantasy title, right?

    Blame Square, not Nintendo.

    And if anything, this game is nothing more than a test of cross-platform online between the DS and Wii.

    That being said, it still looks entertaining.

    I cant wait for this...

    Thats a lie though, as I plan to wait for the localized version. I need a reason to break out the DS/Wii, and since a new professor layton isn't happening for a while, theres no incentive to.

    Ahh, and I have to throw in there that if you're deciding to play or not play a game and you look at graphics first, you have failed and need to find a new hobby.

    They show it with a DSi... will the regular DS have the bandwith to play this?

    Kinda looks like the original CC on the 'Cube, where you had to hook up a bunch of GBA's... now it's just hookin up a bunch of DS's

    Except that you don't.

    And are you kidding me? Are they seriously selling THAT as a WII game? That's a DS game ported to the Wii. Admittedly, it's most likely better than like 90% of the Wii library, but still, why? I was expecting an awesome game with unique ideas and gameplay, as well as amazing graphics like the Cube version was. Not a DS-port.

    This is awesome! You can put your Mii in the game, and even port it over to DS! hahaha

    And for you whiners complaining about graphics, there's a real FF title coming to Wii in a couple months, calm down. For now this is just fun for DS/Wii owners!

    At least there are already all languages on the disc (text and sound) but i don´t know how i can activate them.
    Already tried to patch the language but makes no difference at all [​IMG] .

    No, I didn`t meant it like that, because I absolutely loved the first one on DS and I thought that a nearly identical port to WiiWare would be OK... But now I know that they just ported a DS game as a fully Wii game I think it is a little bit strange to do that. Gfx absolutely don`t make a game (if I would have thoughts similar to that I would certainly not own a Wii [​IMG]) but they partly show the effort put into a game and it is even worst, if it is a handheldport. This game had to be WiiWare!

    I`ll stick to the DS version...

    A WiiWare port couldn't happen. The DS ROM itself is over 100 MB. WiiWare's size limit is 40 MB.

    There is, as far as I know, absolutely no reason to pick the Wii version over the DS version. I'll take DS portability over DS graphix anyday.
    Oh, of course, I'll uh, 'acquire' both versions anyway. If I manage to convince another human being to play that game with me.

    seems similar to geometry wars galxies where the graphics were nearly identical for the wii and ds versions, but this takes it one step further. i honestly cant see why the wii version has to have ds graphics to make cross console gamesply or whatever it is called possible. the polygons would have to be the same, but surely the wii version could have higher quality textures. the game seems pretty crap i think.

    "Famitsu magazine gave the Wii version a 29 out of 40 and the Nintendo DS version a 30 out of 40."
