Why do so many 3DS games look like N64 games?

I don't think the 3DS is at NGC level just yet, but it's graphical power is certainly more powerful than the N64.

if nintendo had never gone with that 3d bs it could have been gamecube level

Every time I see comparisons to N64 as far as graphics are concerned, I think the accuser has either never played an N64 title or doesn't remember what N64 games actually look like.

Last time i checked, donkey kong country returns 3d looks almost as good as the wii version. Plus isn't the wii stronger than gamecube. So that means the 3ds is stronger than gamecube.

Came to say this. DKCR looks just as good on 3DS as it did on Wii.

you're nuts they look better than that....I'd say AT LEAST on par with Gamecube.


yeah, 3ds is 480p+ guys, and the processors is way stronger, and resources aren't wasted on rendering 3d

Kid Icarus Uprising looks better than most games on the Wii.

Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

Wii version looks better due to higher resolution. The rest looks pretty much equal. Anyhow, the Wii didn't exactly have games that had graphics that are significantly better than anything on Gamecube. Gamecube came close to Xbox in terms of graphics and not a single Wii game looks as good as Ninja Gaiden (Black) and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.
