I am all for not improving engines when they are almost flawless (PoP engine, U2 engine, KZ2 engine.....) but NUNS had some serious aliasing issues noticeable on the bigger screens, I hoped they would've address this especiecially since the game doesn't have much more than it's visual style going for it,. A term often overused that is appropriate now; instead of a sequel we get NUNS 1.5, ONLY FANS OR THOSE WHO MISSED THE FIRST NEED APPLY FOR THIS ONE.

this is the problem with this games engine, it may have some of the best cell shading out there, but it means nothing when a characters face and details becomes a mess of black jaggy lines. this game, more then ANY, needs some serious AA. the PS3's capable of MLAA, why dont developers use it?

It isn't as big of an issue in actual gameplay. People that have played the first a ton immediately pick up on this fact.

Game looks amazing, really.

Lars? Wtf? Oh wait...is this game developed by Namco? But still, why Lars of all Tekken characters?

The author of the Naruto series did Lars' character design. It's still pretty random though--that'd be like Naruto being in Tekken for the opposite reason.

Granted, we did get Spawn and Link in Soul Calibur, so it's not too surprising. :p

This game looks amazing in Motion, still screens don't really show that fact.

This game's amazing and will be a day 1 purchase. Best animation in a game and great gameplay. Even if Naruto is complete junk right now, the games have never disappointed. These arent the best screen shots. Just buy it or wait for more footage than the 2 vids they released. None were close to less than amazing. period.

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (1 Day ago)
