I think they could have done better

My only complaint about CW so far are the graphics. Yes I know its DS, but still, the cell shade looks bad. They could have done GTA2 style graphics.

Nope, the graphics are very good. But the game is not only about graphics, it is about story, fun, gameplay etc.

I feel like you have no idea what the DS' capabilities are, or what "making them better" would entail. I say that because you probably would have put it in the first post you made.

 

So the phrase "I feel like they could have done better" means nothing unless you are indeed well-versed in DS hardware and the optimization of it's games.

 

Perhaps a better title for this thread is "I don't like cel-shading".

Nintendo DS specs:

 

100MHz processor (one 67MHz, one 33MHz)

4MB RAM

 

Would you please shut the hell up and be happy that the graphics look as good as they are and Rockstar didn't go back to 2D/3D top-down?

If it was in GTA2 style it would look worse, you'd rather have floating sprites for cars?

i disagree completly. you cant set your expectations too high for games like this. i believe the graphics in CW are great and will remain amongst the best for the DS.

Believe me, I am a quality over graphics guy and I know how limited the game engine is. I like how they did the cars I just wish they would take away the cell-shade and do something that at least looks like its in 3D. I guess I can't convince you though.

I think the graphics are quite good for the DS. And as other people have said, the gameplay should always come first.

Isn't it likely that the DS could only handle the cell-shaded style?

thats exactly what i was thinking. im sure if R* had a better artisitc method available for DS, they wouldve done it. but again i think the cel-shading looks pretty cool and suits the game.

To be honest though its not what I'd call a traditional cell-shading, its not bright and colourful like most cell-shading.

true that. R* would probably argue that they have it that way because thats the atmosphere of the game, but indeed it doesnt look as great as the likes of phantom hourglass, although they can be forgiven for this because there is so much more happening in CTW so they obviously needed to cut back a little in terms of how the cel-shading looked.
