They give it a 7.6/10 while they gave the original game on the PS3/x360 a 3/10. However, while the game itself seems improved from the x360/PS3 launch, here' what they had to say about the graphics.

"Visually, Ninja Gaiden 3 is hardly going to make your PS3 and Xbox-owning friends envious. In fact, Razor’s Edge is arguably uglier than its cousins, with bland textures and a bad case of the “jaggies” combining to create a muddy look that would’ve been called out seven years ago during the Xbox 360’s launch."

That doesn't exactly bode well for the Wii U's capabilities.

and yet you fail to mention the fact that developers are still new to the hardware and aren't aware of how to fully utilize it at this point as has been the case with every single hardware launch in history.

If the hardware were a generation ahead, it shouldn't take much optimization to have the game looking better than it does running on archaic 7 year old hardware. For example, look at Dark Souls:PtD edition on the PC. From Software didn't know crap about how to program a game for the PC and did a very sloppy last minute port. However, the game can still run and look better on a modest rig than it will on the PS3/x360 because the hardware is vastly superior.

Indeed.

im pretty sure you don't know how much optimization it would take

More importantly than the graphics, ng3 went from a broken game to a good one. Hooray!

Btw, graphic whores need to shut up, if you don't optimize the hardware you will see minimal or no graphical improvement. See games that utilize amd features that nvidia cards do not have, etc.

the bottom line is wait until further in the console's lifespan before you start getting all worried.

Actually, if anything, optimizing for the Wii U is FAR easier than optimizing for the PC because there are countless different PC configurations out there for developers to account for while every Wii U is exactly the same. So again, if the hardware were much faster, even a last minute port should be running better on the Wii U than it does on the x360/PS3.

It's not about the graphics exactly. It has to do with with the speed of the hardware which will determine how many next gen games see their way to the Wii U. And again, even minimal effort should have resulted in a technical superior game if the hardware were "next-gen".

i dont think you know what you're talking about

"That doesn't exactly bode well for the Wii U's capabilities."

In graphics...maybe. But they also said this; "It’s far from perfect and best viewed with “launch goggles” on, but Razor’s Edge’s unflinching action and unabashed violence is a great sign for the Wii U as a core gamer’s platform."

That means much more to me.
