The Cruis'n series of racing games has never been renowned for its quality, and going by the looks of the first screens of Cruis'n on the Wii, that trend isn't about to be broken.
WTF they did to my game
there must be an error no way thats a next generation system game. I give my condolenceses to the familys that have seen this.
Graphics don't mean much, but it looks like early (aka terribly bad and blocky) 3D game. There's just no excuse for that, and when you've had bad games before, it doesn't inspire people to see it doesn't look like you're updating anything at all.
you guys are biased!
have you seen the cool shader filter on the cars?
comeone it looks sooo realistic! !!!!!!!!!!!!
we all know no-one would buy it...so gfx wouldnt matter at all
That seriously looks like a PS1 game. The backgrounds are sooooo bad.
i love my wii but this game looks HORRIBLE
hopefully they learn from their mistakes
i say graphics matter... to a point
ouch, that's hidious
i think that this games graphics makes MGS4, bioshock, halo 3, heavenly sword, and UT3 look like super nintendo games.
Midway welcome everyone to the next generation. Nintendo style!!!!
wow, these pics make me remember my n64. i need to drag that out of the closet and play goldeneye again soon...
I thought all Wii games are ugly compared to HD graphics on PS3 and 360.
2 words: Mario Galaxy
Oh yes, another Mario game. Aren't there like 20 of them? Nintendo, come up with something new.
Again, that "enough with Mario" frame of mind. Don't judge a game by its mascot, judge it by its quality. Jesus, there's no game maker in the world that doesn't have some sort of a popular icon.
"Just another Mario game"?
I'll be the first to admit I was pretty underwhelmed by Mario Sunshine. But having tried out three levels of Mario Galaxy myself, I'm more convinced than ever that this is a genuine return to form for Mario; infact, it was probably my favourite game at E3 (That said, I didn't get to try out Rock Band, heh). The way some of the puzzles exploit the planet-shaped levels is great.
My only slight concern? It could turn out a *touch* too easy. Then again, difficulty is a tricky thing to ascertain from playing three levels.
Cruis'n World looked better then that and it is a n64 game and I loved that game. What did midway do to that series :(.
those graphics are disgusting midway seriously took a step back with this one.
"Hey, look, an ugly Wii game! For that reason, the Wii can't have good graphics and the achievements of Corruption, Brawl, and Galaxy should be ignored!"
Everyone who participated in this game needs to be fired on the spot! There is no excuse for this uglyness! Lazy, very lazy devs. Midway, I hope you burn for this insult to the Wii! >:0
Stop the nonsense Bias, bring out real Articles please! Thanks.
It's not just an ugly game...its ugly by N64 standards. It's worse than Cruis'n USA, which was released 11 years ago! Worse!
This isn't just ugly...this is ugly for early, blocky 3D games.
uglier than Spiderman 3 on the wii???
c'mon, say it with me....graphics don't matter. It's all about gameplay. Well, it looks like Midway took what you said literally.
Welcome to last gen Nintendo.
I own a wii, and I love playing the good games I own on it. (read into that as much as you'd like) But this game just looks horrendous. I don't think graphics need to be at a PS3/X360 level for me to enjoy the game, but it looks like they put NO effort into this whatsoever. And there's no need to dis the wii because of these graphics - this is the equivalent of them releasing the game on PS3 with graphics akin to an early PS2 game. Not the system's fault, just the lazy developer. I hope some of the developers get in line and stop creating this crud, because if Nintendo is the only one creating good games - the wii is doomed.
Yeah, people say Mario Galaxy looks like next gen graphics. Well, I say 480p looks like 480p and that's not next gen.
We've been over the next gen thing. Really. At this point it's just a buzz word and couldn't mean anything to anyone more than that.
Plus, have you SEEN Super Mario Galaxy? It really does have impressive graphics for any Wii game; it puts some 360 and PS3 games to shame.
And it's a new experience. That's what really matters. Mario Galaxy fundamentally revolutionizes the gameplay of its predecessors in a way that has been claimed by critics to be incredibly fun. If every "next-gen" game did that, I think we would all be much happier.
i'm not completely against Wii. I just want an HD Nintendo console. I spent money on last gen systems, Xbox and Game Cube, I don't want more of the same. Also, Wii won't be HD. It displays in 480. Sure, a game might look nice, however it'll never compare to 720 or 1080 games with 240+ more lines of resolution. Try turning your PC monitor to 640x480 and tell me that's awesome looking.
New gameplay? oh yeah, Mario dresses like a bee. That's revolutionary. I bet he still jumps on enemy's heads like every other game and shoots fireballs. Wow, that's completely new.
480p is more "next-gen" than d-pad controllers.
We have D-pads and 2 thumbsticks. You wave your arms like a maniac
19.5 of course I want it to fail. The people who buy it are only getting it because of the unique controls and the Nintendo name. They're not thinking long term. Anyway, I was tempted to buy a Wii on Ebay but I'm going to wait until the price comes down to something that should reflect the last gen technology.
BTW, I never said the Wii couldn't have good games. I'm just saying it's time for a new mascot. I want new gameplay AND next gen graphics. Sure the Wii has it's purpose but not in my living room.
I say boo to Nintendo for giving the Gamecube another controller. I want more. I want next gen graphics AND maybe I want the controller, is that too much to ask for?
I can't believe you.
You're not a gamer any more. You really aren't.
Your hatred of the idea that the Wii could produce a good game has distorted your vision and you really couldn't care what anyone says any more. Instead, just ignore all logical thought and run off to statements about "Wii =/= next gen" and "I WANT MY HDTV."
Don't tell me about the Wii's worth. It's pretty clear you just really, really, want the Wii to fail.
19.4 Oh, OK. So you say that even though the Wii has some very good games coming out, people aren't buying it because of that? They're just buying it... because. Huh. OK.
Also, I'll remember to write a letter to Nintendo and tell them to stop using the same mascots. We don't want different gameplay, we want different mascots. That's a statement no one can argue with.
Going by your logic then 1080p isn't next gen anymore.
This is next gen:
2540p(4K+), 4K, 2K
Those shots make my eyes burn!
The N64 game looked better. :|
the power of the Wii is unleashed
Thats was funny. I still love my Wii tho. I guess Midway dumped all those millions into Stranglehold and made this piece of shiyat in hopes that it will sell by the tons on Wii so they can recoup and recover financially. Midway... yallz asses are in for a RUDE awakening if that is indeed your plan. Theres no excuse for this. NONE!! This stinky load looks to be Cruisn'n The Schitter.
Wow, Wii is already the ugliest looking console and now a game is ugly by Wii standards?
It looks like a DSL game.
