    Hey everyone, im new here, so just thought i'd start with a HI!

    Anyway, what i've been wondering ever since I got my wii at xmas is, exactly how good is it?
    There have been quite alot of people talking about comparing it in terms of hardware to the PS2, so the question is this...
    In the future, will the graphics and complexity of the wii games be about the same as that featured on some of the better PS2 games currently out or could they be even better?

    the games released at the moment are near launch games so the graphics and gameplay controls will be improved. developers are still trying to grasp the full potential of the wii so things will begin to turn slowly.

    yes i agree with byuakuya, at that start of play station 2 the graphics were good ( at the time ) and slowly got better and better ( as did the gameplay ).

    so give it a little while and it'll all unreal itself

    Im sure i read that the console has the ability to be 3 times as good as the Gamecube and in the same article it said the gamecube had the ability to produce better graphics than the PS2, i may be wrong though

    depends how well the graphics are optimized. take the max payne series. i can remember when max payne 2 came out and i could run it medium-high graphics on a 1000ghz pc with a 64mb graphic card. On the other hand i could barely run call of duty 1 on medium graphic at a good frame rate. the ironic part is the fact that max payne had far better graphic.

    1000ghz? that's impressive, considering the max at the moment is like 5.

    Anyway good point. If games are optimized to use the Wii's hardware expect cool effects and gfx, if it is a port chances are it'll be the same as the PS2 version.

    The Wii's processor is better than the GC CPU and the Xbox CPU put together, the hollywood ATI chip also runs a lot faster than the xboxs GPU. The xbox was by far the most powerful system of the last gen.

    the graphics right now arent at there best, but they are definatley going to get better as the system ages. but some games that graphics probably will be better looking on are probably gonna be like Super Mario Galaxy, and Metroid Prime 3 Corruption...i thought both Metroids on the GC actually looked very good, so im sure that MP3 is gonna look great plus the wiimote...METROIDGASM.

    How good can the games get? I think it depends on your definition of "good". For me, graphics capability comes behind game play and control. So from that point of view, the Wii is simply the best console ever. And for the games, the sky's the limit.

    At least as far as sports games go, there's no contest. I'm really excited about he upcoming Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 for the Wii. On the Wii, you can simulate an actual golf swing. On other consoles, you use your thumbs.

    Once the games developers get the hang of the new control system then I think we'll see some very innovative games being released. In fact, we've seen hints of this already in the current FPS releases. Things will only get better.

    It can only get better. That will sum it all up for you.

    However they need to release these games faster. I am starting to get bored with the ones I have. I basically only play WiiSports and WiiPlay. I love Excite Truck, but I don't have any real motivation to play it. I have unlocked Super Excite, but the races are insanely diffucult and I'm only in the first cup. I have Zelda, but I've never really been a Zelda fan. I have Call of Duty 3. It's a sweet game, but I just don't feel the motivation to play it. I may try to pick it back up tomorrow.

    I'm glad Sonic just came out. I have been waiting for it. I need to go pick it up ASAP.

    It's the same with every console- over time, developers learn more about developing for the system, so the games generally get better, not just in terms of graphics, but often gameplay as well.

    I am playing Resident Evil 4 on the wii. For a gamecube game the graphics are great. If Wii games compare to RE4 graphics I will be happy.
