For the longest time I'm sure we've heard haters and trolls on other sites basically falsely say that graphics on certain games look like PSP games, etc. For the large part it makes no sense and it only really serves to makes those that say this look foolish if not stupid for simply bashing the console for the sake of bashing it when we all know it won't have the graphics of the 360 and PS3. Yet at the same time the Game Cube and Xbox show that the system will have great graphics regardless just not at the level of the other two new consoles.
At the risk of sounding like the very people I've labeled above though when it comes to Alien Syndrome I can't help but not dismiss their claims. This game is being made for both the PSP and Wii yet I can not tell what is a Wii version of the game as it all looks like a PSP game. Are the special effects the only difference between the games with them being clearer? Cause if that is the case I'm not even going to bother with this game and might as well get it for my PSP.
Not that I have anything against over the top games. I've enjoyed playing Titan Quest, Dungeon Siege, etc on the PC for a long time. However with those games you can zoom down to see a great amount of detail and play that zoomed in if they want. There is nothing to suggest one can do that with AS.
I wish developers would put out games at the appropriate graphical level for the system (at least GameCube or Xbox level and above that at the most). AS is doing the system no favors I fear. I enjoy a good game as much as the next person but when I'm buying a game for a new console there is a certain level of graphics or graphic level I expect from a game. I just hope Sega doesn't dare try to sell this game at full price and expect people to think it's worth the same price as other Wii level games.
