If the game comes anywhere near the quality of the screenshot, I would be happy with atleast the graphics.

EvilTwin5395d ago

Agreed. If they pull off those graphics in-game, it's going to look fantastic (yes, for a Wii game).

ndpad5396d ago

Have a feeling the game will sell pretty good, but also have a feeling the time and love Activision put into the game might not be up there with the amoutn of sales it will do.

Heres to hoping I'm wrong on the quality statement.

Smacktard5396d ago

Is Motion+ really required for a pointing game?

ndpad5396d ago

MotionPlus is not needed.

TheDeadMetalhead5395d ago

It looks MUCH better than those other screenshots (good thing, too), but 30FPS and 10-player multi? Seriously? At least do 12. -_-

EvilTwin5395d ago (Edited 5395d ago )

Those other screen shots were pulled from Gamescom leaks...

http://nintendonow.e-mpire....

...and they're pre-beta. That's why they looked unfinished -- because they weren't anywhere close to finished.

For multiplayer...this is more than W@W had, but less than Conduit. They might be trying to jam Wiispeak in at the last minute and are having trouble getting everything running well online.

The framerate...well, plenty of games look fine at 30 FPS (check out this discussion of Halo 3 at 30 FPS vs. COD4. at 60 FPS: http://www.avsforum.com/avs...
As HVS found out, you can either have 60 FPS on Wii and sacrifice some graphical detail, or you can do 30 FPS for better detail while sacrificing some speed.

I look at it this way -- COD4 was designed to look great on PC with 60 FPS. To put the game on the HD consoles, they had to dull the graphics down a bit to keep that framerate. But now we're down to a port of a port; this game was not designed for Wii, it was initially designed for a PC. They'd have to knock the visuals into a blurry mess to get 60 frames at this point. So they went after 30 FPS to get the best game possible.

But that's what you run into when you're porting a game, and not building it for a specific console from the ground up.
Retro managed to get 60 FPS in Corruption, and RS2 will go as high as 80 FPS, after all. High framerates in both realistic and cel-shaded games are possible on Wii. But you've got to put all of your effort into getting it.

"Wii exclusive “Marksmen preset” which aloows you to aim like a pc"
...wait how does that work?

ChickeyCantor5395d ago

" Precision mode fixes this - instead of moving your wiimote to turn faster, you move your wiimote to point directly at THAT point. It is very much like how aiming with the mouse works on PC shooters. Gives you a much finer degree of control over where your camera goes.”"

...sounds like one of the modes The Conduit has...i guess i have to see that for myself.

EvilTwin5395d ago

Sidar -- Pretty much how I feel...it sounds like Conduit with the controls maxed out, doesn't it?

The only other thing to consider is the "spinning" factor, when you're trying to quickly turn. But I honestly didn't have any problems with that in Conduit.

ChickeyCantor5395d ago

if you think about it, its not possible to map the Wii mote in a sense its a FPS-MouseCrosshair.
Dragging your mouse to a different position defines how the camera should move, but with the Wii-mote there is no drag...you aim constantly.

Basically your screen would be flipping into all angles because your pointer is constantly moving.

...really dont get what they mean...seems interesting.

Will be interesting to see what sort of numbers GP users draw in come tomorrow. It is believed that this is one many have been waiting for.

Darth,

That is not accurate; this game is old, and most people who want it have already bought it. You might get a small number of subs, but we will mostly see a good influx of players(not new subs) from people with Game Pass who will try it, which is what happened with D4.

CoD: BO 6 will be the test for actual sub numbers.

darthv7215h ago

That's fair... seeing as many have been saying they want CoD in GP. My comment was more of , now that its here... what can it do. Im sure there will be other titles in the franchise that will either entice or turn off different users.

Bathyj20h ago

No one's buying a console and signing up for a monthly bill just to get this game to avoid buying it. That's ridiculous. Besides everyone bagged the crap out of this on release for the 4 hour campaign.

andy8521h ago

Sweet. Never got round to it on release. I'll give the campaign a go

Why MW 2019 is still the best looking Call of Duty to date

MW 2019 is five years old at this point and on previous gen hardware, but it is still the best looking Call of Duty game to date.

MW was an excellent videogame. They messed up Spec Ops big time, but aside from this it was a huge step in the right direction initially. Most notably, at launch it seemed to come from a very cohesive creative vision that was felt across gameplay, to story to art style/visual direction. It was also very notably written by prominent ex-Naughty Dog guys that quit almost immediately before release.

That COMPLETELY dissolved through post-launch content and the full pivot to a "cross-mode" narrative that completely obliterated the cohesion in overall story direction. Warzone then "became" the new face of Call of Duty and the franchise completely removed itself from anything remotely creatively "good". It is a pure money machine, so I kinda get why they're doing it....but I personally completely lost interest.

I would love to see Infinity Ward move off CoD and get to make their own product with full control. They clearly have some massive talent in their ranks but it's perverted by Activision's corporate interests.
