Here's the HD version. - http://www.gametrailers.com...
Is that mario sunshine ran at 30 fps and galaxy runs in 60fps with alot more special effects. I played and beat sunshine and it looks good but not as nice as galaxy. There is more processing power in the WII based on what ive seen in those 2 games.
Basically the same. Galaxy is slightly better. Guess the Wii kinda is a gamecube with a cool controller, and it goes to show that you don't need fancy graphics to have fun.
character models are the same but the environments in galaxy are more colorful and diverse, except for the water which looks better in sunshine.
It's a bit disconcerting though that a game made in 2007 looks only slightly better than one made more than 5 years ago.
What did you expect from a repackaged GameCube?
i don't think its pretty fair, you cant really see much on a small screen, and in the HD video the image quality isn't high so there goes allot of details. a fair comparison would be on the same TV-set. and galaxy looks allot better then sunshine, i haven't seen anything like the lava boss in galaxy that looked as good in sunshine...or any fur-shaded character. or this http://wiimedia.ign.com/wii... even this boss looks better in galaxy then shunshine. http://www.siliconera.com/w...
Wii doesn't even make HD graphics, what are you talking about? This is more than fair.
uhh Galaxy looks only slightly better and you really can't see a big difference even with video's beign run side by side... heck Sunshine looks better considering it came out 5 years ago and looks almost identical to the best looking Wii game..!
....Any one who played both games @ home, can really tell there is a huge difference. Galaxy looks way better. this video proves nothing.
UMM I actually played SMG at my friends house and the only things that it does better is that it has better lighting judging from the Video in HD..I didn't play Sunshine cuz well it was on the GC...lol..and I didn't know any one who owned it... BTW im not dissing SMG it's a great game...but the only game worthy of me buying a Wii is SMB....!!!
Graphically it is probably close, but when it comes to the art aspect Galaxy blows all others far far away. THIS is the type of game you want to play on shrooms... it is beautiful. Oh, and after watching that i'm going to go play galaxies. :)
" I didn't play Sunshine cuz well it was on the GC" then how can you tell it has better lightning? your opinion is based on a flawed video. therefor you cant really say if one looks better then the other.
Dude did you actually read what I said...this what I sad before I even mentioned about not playing Sunshine..>>> "I actually played SMG at my friends house and the only things that it does better is that it has better lighting judging from the Video in HD." based on the two video comparison's in HD I stated that SMG has better lighting... So are you telling me that SMG leaped bounds over what Sunshine did on the GC years ago..cuz I don't see it.and I didn't play the entire game..so maybe that's why..!!
"only things that it does better is that it has better lighting judging from the Video in HD." there is more then just the lightning thats better, you just cant see it because of the poor image quality( in HD). my point is you should play them both on the same TV screen, then watching flawed videos.
The only difference I see is the lightning. It's better on Galaxy. Everything else is the same.
It looks better, but is it worth $250? Maybe they could have released a motion controller for the cube and we all could have saved a few dollars.
Wrong, promoting something that is already out in stores for about 5 years wont sell, especially not with the target audience nintendo has now. adding a new controller is like Eye-toy for the PS2, it will only have few games around it and thats it. Nintendo took the right step, with out it, there wouldnt be a nintendo, and the market would remain the same.
there has EVER been a game worth *Insert console price*? Seriously? I have yet to find a game so great i'd buy the console just to play that and no other game.
Sidar, that is just the problem... Remaking the gamecube with a new controller and in a different case can maybe help nintendo sell consoles, but it don't help the "old target", for most older gamers Wii is just gimmick... Some games are good, but the console itself is not worth buying, specially after playing HD games... Not saying graphic is everything on a game, but we don't have more 8bit hardware for some reason.
Who gives a sh** whether or not it looks better. The game play makes this game and the graphics aren't bad either. They use some snazzy effects throughout the whole game and it outshines Super Mario Sunshine in almost every way possible.
galaxy is the best game of all time.. lets start talking about heavenly sword..
What about Heavenly Sword..dude we are alking about Graphics here.. LMAO...plz do not disgrace the Wii...Heavenly Sword..one of the best looking games of all time..so far...I mean GOW2 a PS2 game looks better than SMG..!!
Hate 2 be a d!ck but mario is really old.When is nintendo going 2 invent a new IP.Seems like we have been playing mario 4 the past 30 years.Thats why gaming needs the innovators like sony,bringing new & exciting ideas.
lolwut? What was the last original, new, Sony made game that wasn't a sequel? Sony consoles basically live on third party support alone. Miyamoto has more innovation and good ideas in his little finger than the whole of Sony's computer entertainment division.
ok dude they have made alot of new IP's for the PS3 already RFOM Motorstorm Warhawk..and yes ppl..it may bare the same name but it' a totally different game... Lair Heavenly word Eye of Judgement and last but definetly not least the amazingly fun *UNCHARTED* So how many new IP's have nintendo created for the Wii buddy..?
Yes, Mario is too old. It's nothing but another sequal now. What we REALLY need are games like FF13, KZ2, MGS4, and GT5! Those are fresh new ideas!
"What was the last original, new, Sony made game that wasn't a sequel?" Uh, let's see how you responded. I've included the developers at the end to moot your point. RFOM - Insomniac Motorstorm - Evolution Studios Warhawk - Incognito Lair - Factor 5 Heavenly sword - Ninja Theory Eye of Judgement - Sony Uncharted - Naughty Dog Good job, all of those games bar one, you listed as "Sony's new IP" are actually not developed by Sony, but 2nd or 3rd parties. I mean hell, I could have just said "What was the last original, Sony made game?" leaving out the sequel bit and you would still struggle to find anything original. Not only are they all mediocre and is reflected as such in more or less any reputable review, the one Sony made game is at best described as a gimmick, which is rich coming from a Wii user isn't it? Lastly when I said original, I mean something that's quite different from what we've seen before. I'll be fair and give Eye of Judgement credit for being original, but all the other games are just cookie cutter action/shooting/racing games and do hardly anything new or revolutionary. Whatever your gripes about the Wii are, well it's true it's not regarded for it's graphics but it's inaccurate to say Mario Galaxy looks worse than a PS2 game. For starters the Gamecube was much faster and had better graphics than the PS2, and whatever little speed increase the Wii got, only makes it faster still than the PS2. While Mario Galaxy IS a sequel, it manages to be original and very different from any other Mario game, rather than just being a sequel. Wii Sports, although regarded as mini games and a pack in title, is also original. Wait, that's just 2 games made by Nintendo themselves that are more original than any Sony made game. Also remember that Nintendo is developing for 2 consoles while designing their third. There are a lot of good DS games that are arguably better than PS3 games. Go check out Zelda on the DS. It has original control style and puzzles based on it. Whatever. This is the sort of retarded response I expected from a Sony fanboy. I may be a fanboy too, but you don't see me mocking Sony because it's last gen console is still outselling it's next gen console, do you?
Other than the level designs are really beautiful.
When a soul calibur game is coming to the wii? Isn't it? I don't have a wii, but aren't you guys getting a SC game soon?
soul calibur on the Wii might be fun. As long as it's not all waggle like BLEACH. My 4 year old son even got bored of it after 15 minutes. Anyway Mario Galaxy is a step up. All props to Nintendo but they need to get Brawl out now!!
same graphics maybe slightly deiffrent art direction well i guess you can say it look a lil better buy mario sunshine was a launch game 5 years ago that came packaged with the system so......
So im watching the HD video, my wife walks over: wife: whats that me: comparrison between mario for gamecube and wii wife: thats 2 different games? they both look the same to me. Personally I agree for the most part, they could be the same game.
