In a world where footage of the Wii U version of the game has been scarce, we have managed to get a copy of the game, screenshot in-game footage, record gameplay footage, and upload it all for you all to see.
Wish BF4 came to Wii U instead of this :[
Looks great even though its not 1080p let alone 720p. I dunno why it isn't, doesn't the Wii U only need 18mb of Edram for a 1080p frame-rate buffer? All I know is, is that this looks great. Thanks Activision.
Texture resolution and shading detail are still higher than the last gen versions though. This has more to do with Activision just being cheap on porting than the Wii U's strength. Splint Cell had no problem doing higher resolutions than the PS3/360 version of the game ontop of a higher, more stable frame rate on top of outputting to as second screen in 480p widescreen.
I mean, even Battlefield 4 looks great on PS3 and Xbox 360. Why this looks SO BAD?
To be honest I think bf4 on Xbox360/ps3 puts all versions of ghost to shame. I mean there are so many destructive elements that even next gen ghost doesn't have. Other than that it looks like a good port.
Nintendo needs to make another 'next-gen' console.
It's been a year, leave the damn thing alone already. Wait for the exclusives at this point. We know the system is underpowered by comparison. That's not going to stop Nintendo from releasing fantastic games for it. The Wii and PS2 were weak systems in their day. They still had great content on offer.
For the past 5 generations, the weakest consoles have sold the most. Say hi to the NES, SNES, PSX, PS2, Wii, DS and the still-going-strong 3DS. Specs don't make a system. Games do. How many people do you REALLY think buy a console because it has XYZ amounts of RAM, or a super-powerful graphics card? You only need to - really - worry about that kind of stuff if you're buying a PC. Nevertheless; with games like Trine 2, X, Bayonetta 2, Smash Bros. 4, Super Mario 3D World, Need for Speed Most Wanted U, Pikmin 3 and Sonic Lost World already gracing the system - I believe the Wii U has a bright future ahead, in terms of producing some beautiful games. If Wii is anything to go by; doesn't necessarily matter how much less power you have compared to the competition. It's how you adapt to the available hardware and really try and use it - is what matters. Skyward Sword, Sonic Colors, Mario Galaxy 1-&-2, Fishing Resort (Google it), Go Vacation, and Wii Sports Resort - are good examples of that.
Looks like COD
Best comment I've seen in a long time. Bubble up.
BO:2 looks way better... I might get it for WiiU just to support COD on Nintendo, but BF4 just looks so much more exciting than this... This will not sell well on WiiU... whether it looks this bad or not. They only need 100k to make their money back. This game looks like crap. I was really looking forward to this, now not so much.
Looks awesome. glad I have it coming soon.
I own the game and in real it looks much better. Looks really washed out in this vids... probably bad filtering. Looks actually pretty good 9n a hd tv.
Also, these vids are by default only 480p, so they look worse than they actually are. Game looks a little more fun in MP than previous ones, so I may give this game a go.
Looks great on WiiU, but unfortunately looks like this will be a PS4 purchase, because PS4 will have no games and Nintendo won't have enough people online to play all of the modes.
Ah fps with wii mote pointer controls are just the best thing ever. So smooth and precise. Looking forward to this.
