I've always wondered about this. On some games, I notice that the graphics look extremely pixelated. But there's also other games that look like the graphics could be compared to the Wii. Can someone please answer this question.

You said the answer, it depends on the game.

Depends on the game and what the developers are going for. They could make the game look like an atari game if they wanted.
Please, call me FF.

It's just a little confusing. StarFox 64 3D looks like it has the Wii's graphics, but OoT's graphical power looks nothing like SF 64 3D.

Actually, Ganon's Castle at the end looks absolutely mindblowing. It feels like it surpasses the Wii's graphic in that particular place. I think they didn't really do OoT3D for the graphics though. The 3D is perfect, however.

Is this really a question? The DS was capable of producing near n64 visuals, with the 3ds being an amped up version, how can you even compare it to the n64?

Go play Resident evil the mercenaries and you'll stop asking silly questions.

I heard the 64ish graphics for OoT was because fans thought it added to the charm of the original.

Clearly TC was too young for the N64 to think OoT graphics are comparable at all to the original game. As someone above said, developers have confirmed the system to be on par with the wii in terms of power, but with even better lighting effects.
