IGN just posted four new screens of the upcoming wii fps The Conduit. Hopefully we'll get a landslide of Conduit media soon.
Looking pretty bad. They seem kinda old. The last gameplay vid looked much better. Some of these shots like the one pictured in the story seem to have early PS2 graphics.
The second one was rather weak, ps2 quality, as you say. The third and the fourth were all right and the first one was really good. Screenshots are not the way to evaluate game graphics. We have to wait to watch more videos.
These are actually not new pics (well most of them anyway) these are stills from early development...gotta be..pictures never seem to do this game justice.I personally could care less if the conduit looks close to ps3/360...in fact I think the quantum 3 engine has a look all it's own.I'm just happy a third party dev gives a crap and are taking some time to make something good for the wii. The wii seems to be racking up on some good third party exclusives as of late...luckily :)
I'm amazed that some are touting this game as "360-quality graphics." It's clearly not even the best visuals on the Wii.
I think the Quantam 3 graphics engine has the beef I just want to see High Voltage pump more into the level designs/models thats what detracts from it but overall nice textures, excellent lighting, some decent water effects. Really wish we could get some long video walkthroughs though, just to show off some purrty ee-fects.
Not looking so great, but then again, I never thought screenshots were a good way to judge what a game is going to look like. Footage only, bay-bee.
Your exactly right,watching a game in motion is a far better indicator.Gameplay stills seem to always pick up any graphical flaw the game might have such as aliasing.The trailer was much more impressive,although there is still some work that needs to be done.Some of the indoor/building locations in the game are far too bland for example.
And this is next gen graphics...How?
turok 2 with the 4MB expansion pack!!!!
The rest,no comment...
Looks so wrong. From colour shiny ass scheme to graphical quality...not so great. I hope it looks better in motion.
After having been exposed to 360 and PS3 quality graphics, these screens look like garbage...jagged garbage.
Not too bad for a garbage Wii game. If Wii were in HD, I might actually buy some games for it. Oh well. They said this game uses bump mapping, but what about normal mapping? bump mapping is garbage without normal mapping.
they should be embarassed that they actually have to tell us that.
or do those look worse than ps2 games.
most people on here who go garbage wii game and spout off and chant the same thing over and over again that wii has ps2 graphics and what not don't know crap about the technicalities of videogame graphics or the technical specs of the wii for that matter. If you look at comparison screens particularly the ones with the glowing arm glove setup you will see a good improvement over the last screen featuring the same arm. They have done normal mapping on the arm or it looks like that anyway.They have added self-shadowing effects and other lighting/shadow effects too, soft shadows in particular if you look at some screens. The game has been in development for about 2 months considering that this isn't bad at all. they have a year to develop this game and since this game is in pre-alpha (as the developers themselves have stated) its far from what the final game will look like. Most people say the wii can achieve only what the ps2 can which is huge misconception the gamecube and xbox are evenly matched despite popular belief and the ps2 was easily the weakest system last gen. The wii is roughly twice as powerful with a lot more ram , a more efficient gpu architecture and much faster RAM. Now something odd that i find about the wii is that it has 16mb of e-dram. to my knowledge its used for anti-aliasing particularly on the 360 where it has 10mb of e-dram. But the wii has even more than the 360. The ram effectively allows you to do anti-alisasing without affecting the performance of the game. Anit-alisaing is useful in hd-games but why the wii has it and why even more than the 360 confuses me. MAybe someone with mroe technical knowledge about these topics could explain it to me i am willing to listen. Actually quite eager. P.S screens are never a good way to judge a game , a game almost always looks better in motion. An example woule be Metroid prime 3 corruption it looked like crap in screens but once you satrt playing it , it blows you away.
so I dont care for the wii much. But Give me a break. I know the ps2 was the weakest last gen, thats why I started to use my xbox more. But isnt this the game that was supposed to have 360 like grafix(even 360 in 480p). Why lie so blatantly and release these pics that really look WORSE than halo 1. Ohh probaly to hype a crapy game, only thing that isnt generic about it is its a 3rd party game on wii that isnt complete crap. I dont know the specs of the wii, nor do I care. All I know is what ive seen and that is that all grafix on the wii could be done on GC and I doubt the wii will have anything that looks better than the Riddick game on the original xbox. ps: its not just me apparently, everyone in here was looking foward to the "360 like grafix on the wii." These could barley be called "original xbox like grafix." I always thought the wii was closer to the original xbox grafix but this game made me think its really more like ps2, especially after hearing how great they would be.
i thought when we seen the first vid i was like sweet, but now i can see that the graphics are nothing better than were getting (in a SMG sence) but best 3rd party all they have done is make monsters etc glow and shine, nothing specail.. but saying that i will buy, online multi bring it
