Halo 2...

Quote:
Today two articles popped up on the internet, one from GamePro which talks about how Nintendo held an invite only game session. At the session apparently Metroid Prime 3 Corruption stole the show, they even went as far as saying the game looks better then Halo 2 did on the Xbox. This just shows how the Wii's graphics are far superior to the Gamecube.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Definitely stole the the show. The graphics looked amazing — better than Halo 2 on the Xbox without a doubt — and the levels showed off sparkling details, proving the Wii is far more powerful than the Gamecube. Out of all the games we played, the Wii controller seemed most at home with Metroid.

The next article from the News Observer tell us that Metroid Prime 3 Corruption takes full advantage of the Wii's FPS controls. Also includes info on Samus' gun and news that you will be able to fly Samus' ship!

“Corruption” takes full advantage of the first-person perspective to make you part of the action. There’s also a new hyper mode in which Samus can fill up her phazon supply to a certain point to push her into a heightened period of speed and power. Push the phazon limit too far and it will overload her armor and you’ll be seeing a game over screen. Finally, word is that at long last Samus’ ship will be used during gameplay, an intriguing twist that should cause the saliva glands of “Metroid” fans to work overtime.


Since when is it an achievement for a current-generation game to look better than a last-generation game?

Interesting. I thought it was actually millions of midgets running on a gigantic treadmill that caused the Earth to rotate.

The point is that the Wii isn't a true next-gen console in the term of graphics. In terms of gameplay it is (I swing my 360 controller around and nothing happens). I think they mean that by it.

I think it's just interesting that they're bragging about looking better than a game that's more than 2 years old.

Halo 2 didn't even look that good. Confused

no, people like it now because it's new. I'm not saying they wonlt like it anymore in a year or so, but it'ss be a year old then, it'll be little more than the difference between 360 and PS3 controllers.
