Maybe Super Mario 3D World's visuals need just a little more love than it's already getting. Come see why for yourself!
I should hope so, it's a generation leap.
Fuggin day 1. Been waiting for this.
Next gen hardware...HD....so it should However it won't beat SMG in terms of gameplay/level design/music...SMG2 was just fantastic.
I wouldn't count SM3DW out yet, I used to think the same shortly after E3 2013, but those last few trailers have been showing promising content.
It's looks good but nothing special like the first time I saw Super Mario Galaxy or Super Mario Sunshine. Those ideas/settings hadn't been done before while SM3DW has...in the form of it's 3DS counter part. It hasn't got the "wow" factor 64, Sunshine and Galaxy did. So I'm hoping this isn't part of that collection of Mario games and they have something else planned in the future @below "just with the idea that this game is simply a 3DS port. It's already doing things the 3DS couldn't, both in the gameplay and graphics department." At the end of the day it is...you can change it up as much as you want, improve it, add certain stuff but at it's core it's the same concept with added features. Hell it's even got roughly the same name, it's a console version of a 3DS Mario game like what they did to New Super Mario Bros to New Super Mario Bros Wii/U. Nothing fully wrong with it but I wish people would just admit it. Thats why in my opinion it's not really the spiritual successor of Mario 64 for the Wii U. Maybe that Open World Mario game they talked about is....an open world Mario game, now thats something that hasn't been done before.
I don't disagree with the idea that this game won't reach Galaxy levels of game (Gonna be a while before that happens again), just with the idea that this game is simply a 3DS port. It's already doing things the 3DS couldn't, both in the gameplay and graphics department.
Well me personally, i'll wait until the game comes out until i say it wont ever beat SMG. Because i've never been a fan of galaxy in the first place, it felt too linear to me. This is linear too, but at least its cooperative. "Nothing fully wrong with it but I wish people would just admit it." I really don't like when people determine their opinion as fact. Perhaps people "won't admit it", because they genuinely are wowed by the first multiplayer 3D mario game, as well as the first one in HD. There's nothing wrong with that, they shouldnt have to admit anything -__-
I agree abouy galaxy there was nothong like it before it. There had veen nothing like mario 64 before. But cmon you have to admit. Alot if not most mario fans have been waiting for a multiplayer 3d mario game. Wel for me atleast ever since 64. That alone is a big step. And revolutionary in its own way or should i say evolutionary. and no your right 3D worlds mission is not to be new and wow us like galaxy did. Its meant to refine and perfect 3d and 2d blend platforming And going by the latest trailers I'd say its missipn accomplished.
This game is looking better and better. I cannot wait! Multiplayer looks fantastic! It's a shame you can't play with your Miiverse buddies, though.
lol look at the specs of the two systems, and its easy to figure out why the visuals are better than galaxy.
Agreed. Galaxy was done on GameCube 1.5, and now SM3DW is being done on their new console (aka PS360 1.5) That being said the game does look good.
Biggest load of rubbish I've ever heard. Stop takin whatever drugs ur taking. Lol
@Fanboyssuck27 Show me why what I said was "Biggest load of rubbish". The Wii uses the same CPU and GPU of the GameCube with 1.5x over-clocks. The only unknown is the RAM from the GameCube compared to the Wii. Wii = GameCube 1.5 Now the Wii U's CPU is 3x the Wii's with an over-cock of 1.7x (OoE helps the Wii U CPU compete with PS3 overall, and exceed 360), the GPU is only 1 tier above the PS360 GPU equivalents, and the Wii U has 2GB of RAM; (4x the PS360) however, it's half the speed of the PS3's RAM and uses eSDRAM to make up for the speed, so compared to the 360 the Wii U's slow, split RAM (1GB games, 1GB OS) is only slightly above the efficiency of the 360's RAM as far as games go (it has the benefit of 1GB still for OS). Wii U = PS360 1.5 I would love to hear any technological response on why you think my comment was "rubbish". But I'm sure you don't have one, because to you and other like you simply saying Version 1.5 is an insult, when in fact that's exactly what it is. If you're not bringing intelligent or insightful information to the conversation then stay out of it. You might want to change your name to "isuckasaFanboy27".
Disagrees, yet no one intelligent enough to come up with an educated response....desperate fanboys.
No shit? How biased can this site nintendoenthusiast.com be? Oh, right... Nintendo fanboys... Christ...
As opposed to N4G and Gamespot with the Sony fanboys, right?
They also forgot the gameplay > graphics thing that used to be used as a first line of defense for bad looking Wii games.
Gameplay>graphics SHOULD be uses for ANY game...
Oh wasn't that the line for Sony Ponies 2 generations ago and again 1 generation ago with the 360? After the "Just you wait!" didn't happen? And now the line for the Xbots with the Xbox One vs PS 4 stuff? For me it is actually correct, gameplay > Graphics. Story > Graphics, Music > Graphics (for me at least music can be a deal breaker) and Fun > All. But that is my personal stance on the matter, some people just enjoy comparing pixels more then playing the game.
How is saying 3D World has better graphics than Galaxy 2 a Nintendo fanboy-ish thing?
What I don't understand is what the site is being biased towards. I mean, its comparing games from the same company lol.
...because galaxy was on the ps3...? How can they be biased when their both nintendo games? How dumb can someone be? Oh, right... Nintendo trolls...christ...
What the heck is your problem? The game does look better. Is the only reason you came to this post, to troll? I am a gamer and not a "fanboy", and I like what I see. Spewing out hate, a gamer does not make you.
Now if we had a Galaxy HD collection to compare it to (PLEASE PLEASE) then we would be apples to apples.
Play HD Super Mario Galaxy on PC emulator that puts both of them to shame.
Im definitely sure they are using an upgraded system of the galaxy engine. Add more polycount and a higher resolution to Galaxy 2 and it isn't far behind. Galaxy 2 still looks great thanks to the artstyle. For a Wii game they did a pretty amazing job.
I re-100%ed (is that even a word!!) Mario Galaxy 2 on my Wii U this week in anticipation of SM 3D World, and I must say that SMG 2 is unparalleled in gameplay and instantly gratifying fun factor by any other game in the last generation and I find its graphics perfect in art style, color and performance; really outstanding (even if not in HD) in an ocean of same-y looking dull grey visuals. SM3DW looks to carry on that legacy but in HD this time with the sweetest of visual effects and art styles. It will be marvelous to play this game.
Xbots & Sony Ponies answer: But it is Wii U! It sucks by default! All graphics are bad on that thing, look at the specs sheet? Are you looking yet *rams it in your face several times? Should we get Digital Foundry to compare framebuffer objects until you understand? Why do you not understand that this is a MAJOR DEAL! You are a fanboy if you do not understand! Dealbreaker! Look at the resolution! Nintendoids are such fools! How about the sales information! See how few are sold! That should show you that it is stupid! OT:And indeed it looks amazing and fun as well, I can't wait to play it :). This also promises good things for other Nintendo exclusives like Zelda, Metroid, F-Zero... should they ever release. I'm still hoping on a Kid Icarus for the Wii, even if that is a ludicrous hope by now seeing the interviews given by Nintendo and the developers.
I mean there both sexy. But I imagine this would have had to look better since this is the next gen. Still galaxy puts most games to shame even this day in age, Nintendo really brought it with galaxy and 3D world looks incredible.
