Are you sure this isn't the Wii version?

Wii Version? Washy textures, no bump mapping... looks like the ps2 version

This was reviewed by the UK based Playr TV show over the weekend (replacement of Gamer TV on Bravo). They really liked it and gave it 8/10. Looks like they have implemented some nice rhythm action bits for some disciplines too.

the dreamcast version of Sydney 200 looks better than this. no really it probably does.

Something looks wrong there. It does look like someone's blown up a low-res pic. Usually when it's just low-res textures but a native screenie the text and HUD still look very sharp, but they just don't here.

Looked way better on PlayrTV (PS3 version was shown), this does not do it justice!

Tbh it looks bloody fantastic (from the programme) and reminds me of the old Summer/Winter games on the C64 (and theres skeet shooting ala hyper sports woohoo!).

So the first pic is bad. The rest seems ok, for an olympic game...

    GriftGFX Dammit.. I was like, wait, no.. I don't want to start a Witcher discussion. It's just standard seller's remorse stuff. (34 minutes ago)

    MikeManiac61 @Megido: That's what I did. Never heard of the books until the game came out. Zapkowsi should be happy, I've bought all of the books so far. (48 minutes ago)

  • Megido
    Megido If anything, i think he should be happy. his books were pretty much completely unknown outside of Poland before the games so far as i know, so why complain? More people will read the books. Win. (2 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido offered a percentage of all sales. So he screwed himself because he didn't think the games would sell. As much as i like his books, i mean...tough luck bro. (2 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @asdfg: Grift posted a link about Zapkowski who was butthurt about the Witcher games as they internationally overshadow his books, and that he took a straight payment upfront even though he was... (2 Hours ago)
