why the **** would you post so many CG pics- if at all? you only make the game look even more horrid than it already is.

In response to the AI comment, it depends on whether they incorporate that fancy "A-Life" system that was featured in the original.

I just don't know what to say about the game. It does look very dated, but judging by the gameplay video they're retaining all the stylistic elements that made NiGHTS such a wonder to play. I'm glad they showcased a Puffy lookalike as Puffy was my favorite Nightmaren in the original. The game's appearance is inconsistent at best: the model of the Puffy lookalike actually looks great, but the backgrounds are what kills the game. Not in terms of art style (as I said, it looks like NiGHTS), but in graphical fidelity.

What's "the average" supposed to look like on Wii?!

This represents the difference between the normal Nightopia and the corrupted Nightmaren areas. The game is already running at a solid frame rate, and the art style is quite lovely.

Sounds like it's above-average to me. If the framerate turns out well (which IGN was worried about), it'll be an above-average Wii title graphically at the least (most shovelware and ports look a lot worse than that).

your definition of "fine" is different from mine then i guess. I wouldn't describe something that would have been right at home in 2001 as "fine".

Did they see a different video than the one shown right before E3? Because that looked pretty boring/terrible for a game releasing in 4-5 months up against Mario Galaxy. Or two years after Resident Evil 4.

This looks fantastic to me, considering i can sit down and still play nights:itd for hours, any graphical upgrade is nice. And when it comes down to it theres not much they can get wrong....the game is very simple after all.

Next-gen Nights:

I don't know what's lamer: the fact some next-gen developers have created this stupid stigma of motion blur + extremely overdone bloom lighting in next-gen games or the fact people keep repeating it as if quality developers nowadays still do it.

Man, I love threads about how shoddy Wii screens look. After this, we should all go post thousands of sales charts and speculate who's going to win the GREAT CONSOLE WAR five years from now.

Seriously--Nights (the original and the new one) both look much, much better in motion than in shots. Everybody knows that.

Well, Segata..you know it was lost just during the first few replies of "Boohoohoo....I don't like how it looks"...

And I was like the second to admit that I liked the in-game pics, and still people continue whining..
