I've never been that big on graphics, but these look nice, especially the fifth image.

Anon19743243d ago

The Wii doesn't do 720p. What's the point in showing us this?

N4g_null3243d ago

This is pretty much what the game looks like on my tv. How is that possible well check out my tv not all hdtvs are equal.

I'm going to get a new led dlp HDTV this x mas. When people come over they ask me how I got an hd wii lol. Hell it even makes hd games look better.

El_Colombiano3243d ago

LED DLP....sense...this does not make.

I absolutely love DLP. We have a few theaters here running it. Blows everything else away.

ThanatosDMC3242d ago

The game isnt 720p but the game itself is extremely fun toplay with friends and family cuz you could pick them up and murder each other!

N4g_null3242d ago

Lol el why does a wii owner have a better tv than you? I refuse to buy a half azz HDTV. Also IMAX only uses dlps hd projectors.

If it does not make sense then it's because you don't understand how they work. The best thing you could do is just find one and compare it to your HDTV if the wii looks like crap then you got had. The tech companies are treating you guys like little kids and taking your hard earned cash. If your going to get a tv that big then why not make it flawless?

so what if its 720p if the textures are still low res...

PirateThom3243d ago

I think, personally, for a game that's cartoony and colourful, the texture resolution doesn't really matter as much.

Even running something like Wario Ware or Galaxy in an upscaled form looks decent enough on my TV (Resident Evil 4 is near unplayable, it looks that bad, textures all blend).

Instead, shots like this just confirm my question, "why not, at least, 720p?"

militant073243d ago

Resident evil 4 wii edition look like an ass in HDTV.

LeonSKennedy4Life3243d ago

Which is weird, because the PC version looks incredible!

Meh, graphics don't really matter if you really think about it. Since about the PS2, graphics got to a point where anything else is just for showing off.

It's really all about gameplay. And this game delivers that in spades. Too bad no online co op though.

Course, I think I'm in the minority when it comes to gameplay > graphics.

LeonSKennedy4Life3243d ago

I'm with you on that one.

Shadow of the Colossus is still my favorite game. Even though it's not exactly Crysis...the environments and art more than make up for it. The game is just plain gorgeous!

I'd rather play Devil May Cry 3 than Devil May Cry 4 any day...even though it looks terrible. Lols. It just had so much more heart to it.

Developing is all about the love of the craft. Those who care and really want to make an enjoyable experience will.

Of course, don't have to settle for one or the other.

Uncharted 2
Killzone 2
Gears of War 2
Metal Gear Solid 4

All of these hold up well graphically and with gameplay. (I'm sure a few of them are debatable, but I'm trying to prove a point.)

Wario Ware isn't the best looking game ever. It's actually a pretty aesthetically pleasing game, but it doesn't look INCREDIBLE! However, it's probably the most fun I've had with a game this generation! goes to Buzz: Quiz TV. Lols. Wario Ware is a very close second though!

ReservoirDog3163243d ago

Yeah, that's basically the point I was trying to make. And SotC was a good example. Can it look better? Of course it can. But they managed to make an incredibly emotional and near perfect game that still looks pretty good till this day.

And of course, great graphics are nice. But I'd never play a game for its graphics.

Killzone 2 was really good. Graphics were nice but I liked it for its different controls.

DaTruth3243d ago (Edited 3243d ago )

Movies are still good in SD, but I prefer my movies in HD1080p. Just like I prefer my games with good graphics. Good graphics and gameplay aren't mutually exclusive.

Crap movies are just as bad in HD!

Edit: Maybe I should have read your whole comments before posting. Self ownage FTW!!!

Looks amazing! Seriously, if Nintendo would release a Wii HD that had 720p output and 4x anti-aliasing, I would be sold. Everything I have seen on the Wii emulator looks fantastic, I just wish Nintendo would have done this in the first place.

Mystery3243d ago

The screenshots are 1024x576. Maybe they were downsampled from the source images, but the images hosted on nintendoeverything aren't HD.

Valay3243d ago

Should be the original size now.
