@DarkwingLZ its crazy @theonehacker spoke my thoughts before I even had the chance to write them straight down to the examples I used.

'I'll preface my comment by stating that I am a hugeeee nintendo fan, have owned everyone of there consoles, and have purchased a sickly amount of their first party titles.
With that said, its kind of disheartening to come to this site (even being a nintendo fan site) and constantly seeing the defense that people here blindly give to nintendo. I constantly see one person put up a well stated opinion and then see numerous users quote that opinion as fact to defend their arguments. Anyone who cannot clearly see that this graphics are garbage, borderline ps2/gamecube, is blind. we DO NOT know for a fact how early this build is, so constantly stating they have time to polish does not make it so.
It is not that I believe graphics are the most important thing, but when even smartphone games like infinity blade are reaching a certain level of polish, it is well within our right to expect certain production values for what these games cost us.'

That is my initial comment.

So for anyone who has criticized it saying things such as

@cronotoze saying 'The idea that games need top end graphics to be well loved has pretty well flown out the window" insinuating that i implied games need good graphics to be well loved
or
@gioku who stated 'I think you place too much importance on the graphics... if the game is fun, the graphics I couldn't care less about, and this looks really fun!'

must not have read my initial posts or my following posts. I never stated a game needs good graphics in order to be fun- this is illustrated by me enjoying games such as lost kingdoms which were not necessarily graphically pleaseing for their time. But I do believe that graphics and CAN play a VERY important role in creating an experience- console creators must also agree based on the fact that every time they release a new console they up the specs rather then just changing the casing and marketing it as a new product.
Just because graphics dont need to be cutting edge doesnt mean that they dont need to illustrate the vision of the game. One such example includes mega man 9 which uses old school graphics yet it still a wonderful game or minecraft as stated earlier (even though it is personally not my cup of tea).

at least in MY OPINION (and not everyone needs to share it, but they should respect my right to have it the same way i respect theirs) this game falls into one of two categories

1) Fails to illustrate the vision of this game i a satisfactory manner OR
2) it is exactly the way it is supposed to look and it simply does not appeal to me.

Just cause I believe one or the other does not mean that I have particularly high standards, or that I am a graphics person, or I cannot appreciate quality gameplay etc. all my statements are simply my opinion and I am entitled to them the same way youre entitled to yours.

Nothing against your argument, but watch the language -Lz

There is nothing wrong with having expectations from developers when you are a consumer purchasing their product; if the item doesn't meet your expectation you don't have to purchase it simple as that. After reading your last comment, I believe you only choose to see your point of view and are not open to the opinions of folks like me who have certain expectations.

I never stated that because a game is not a triple a blockbuster whatever you want to call it it cannot be enjoyed. I LOVED the lost kingdom series on the gamecube for anybody who is familiar with that series, I enjoyed the rival turf series on the snes when the majority of people i know dont even know what it is. I am a big fan of many games that did not have the big budget behind it. But usually he games that do not have a big budget that deserved to still receive praise or special mention have a certain charm to them or a special amount of 'heart' put into the development process that is apparent- this game, at lease from a very very short first look, imo does no appear to have that at this point. this is simply my opinion, ive stated it clearly, and not everyone needs to agree with it.

@Einherjar

Again you make some interesting and valid points, but I think you slightly misunderstood my points.

'With the way graphics have been progressing I am expecting to see smaller jumps in polygon pushing and photorealism' is what i said; this mean I am NOT expecting for games such as this to become photo realistic. What I am hoping for, as we continue to get stronger consoles, is a certain level of fluidity and 'polish' to our games, and I think most would agree (while it will always be opinion) that this video, at the very least, does not approach that.

I understand what you are saying completely about the company's limited resources, and will admit that I am impressed by their continued tenacity in trying to maintain current in a generation where as soon as you release something you're outdated.

@Einherjar Oh I'm definitely familiar with the series, and understand where your coming from completely. But this level of graphics tied to what is supposed to be a next generation is just unacceptable at this point.

With the way graphics have been progressing I am expecting to see smaller jumps in polygon pushing and photorealism, but expect more from things like on screen character count without having to have polygon drops, weak textures or frame rate drops.

I will concede to your point that this is not developed by Nintendo though; my comments are basically vented frustration at developers that choose to be lazy.
