Game Informer says 5 out of 7 games look and play worse on Wii U

#41Tino_Tonitini2Posted 1/19/2013 6:29:43 PM
It's a shame most people, Game Informer included, overlook Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed (definitely not an indy game). By most accounts, it seems to run, look and play as well as the PS3 & XBox 360 versions, if not better. In fact I still see people on the PS3 version board complain about glitches that don't seem to be an issue on the Wii U (after the patch, of course).

The only version that is probably better is the PC version but that's a given under most circumstances.

No one actually listens to anything GI says. The only reason people get it is because it's forced upon them when they sign up for a Gamestop power up rewards card.

My GI was switched to digital only and I just lol and delete that s*** right away.


You should have kept the magazine physical. It costs them money to print and ship, the digital costs them nothing.

Black out or tear off your address and give the magazine to a local children doctor's office waiting room.

I'm pretty sure TTT2 plays worse, I guess the new content was worth more then the technical issues though.


It plays about he same. However, the graphical fidelity of TTT2 lags behind that of the 360. TTT2's graphics engine is dynamic and has on the fly scaling, it will swap in and out lower quality assets depending on the load. There's also apparently some effects which gets knocked down a bit on the Wii U version. However, playability-wise, it plays about the same as the PS360 counterparts.

In my experience, the games that were ported over significantly later than the original (Arkham City, Mass Effect, Darksiders) do have some noticeable mild technical issues, but it seems like the games that came out almost on time with the other versions (BlopsII and AC III were only later because of launch; they were multiplats, not ports) perform slightly better and smoother. Based on my experience, I expect future multiplats to perform and look mildly to moderately better as developers get more comfortable with the Wii U. This several times more powerful business is unrealistic, but it seems the Wii U does have the ability to have the strongest version of a game, even if it's marginally so.

Noone seems to mention Skylanders Giants which looks MUCH better. I played all 3 versions. Wii u version has solid framerate, no tearing and much higher resolution.

TC didn't read. They said BLOPS 2 looked and played the same. The reason they said it, Madden and FIFA (IIRC) are worse are do to the inactive online communities.

Madden and FIFA had some fairly legitimate major complaints, but yeah, their only complaint with Blops II was the lack of online activity. No complaints about the game itself. Mass Effect 3 was similar, as I mentioned earlier.

In my experience, both Cod and Batman seem about the same on the Wii U as they do on the PS3. Assassin's Creed is as good or better, based on what a friend said. Course, that's just what I've seen.

Better:

Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Darksidesrs II


Worse:
Mass Effect 3
Batman: Arkham City: Armored Edition
Blops II
Madden NFL 13
FIfa 13


FACT the games that play worse are made by developers who lack skill vs the ones with games that play better.
Also note that most of the games that play worse come from EA.
EA is s*** when it comes to porting.


What the ****, man. Now I'm convinced you're ~15-16.
