I know it's "not what the Wii's about' and all that, but the graphics whore in me was delighted at the details on the engine improvement over the first game: "optimizations allowed us to almost double the size of our normal maps, add a detail or noise shader pass to almost every surface, increase the number of advanced shader passes and increase the amount of detail in characters and environments."
I mean, I don't expect by Wii games to look like DX10 PC material, but I still prefer it if they look better than Gamecube titles, and since it's probably one of the most under-utilised consoles ever, I'm interested to see just how far the little white box can be pushed.

Is April 5th accurate? Two weeks early? Either way, the game must be nearing gold status soon. --- PS3: Third-Drifter Wii PES 2011: 4040 2669 3725

Wuh? ..... soooo... tconslayer is used for the upserd and "what the ****??" posts, while my name is used for people who complain about them?
... Well, i'm not the only one.... i just complain about them the most often.
On-Topic: Hell of a read, good interview. The insight about the development of the game was especially neat to me. --- Sparkster returns after 16 years in..... "Rocket Knight" My Alias for Wii Online = "Shader" Monster Hunter Tri = "Deimos"
