"I think a lot of the reviews have been overly critical," said Reggie. "Does it take you a few minutes to get used to the Red Steel control scheme? Yes. Once you get used to it does it play extremely well? Absolutely. I think a lot of those reviews are overly harsh. Just like the IGN review of Wii Sports. They’re negative on the graphics of the game, but we always said what the graphics would be. I think that’s people just being hypercritical."
Maybe he has got a point. But telling us that Wii Sports wasn't gonna have good graphics for what the system is capable of doesn't mean it will get away with it. Though it was Ninty's choice to make the graphics like that.
