A game such as this seems wasted on the WII Console. I mean, its not a bad console, but in my opinion it just doesnt have enough juice to fully pull off graphics which are a necessity for this particular game.Take it all away, and all you have left with is "Doom" or "Duke Nukem 3D"...which I guess arent bad things.

Why do people say this? If you're going to be buying something, generally you want it to be worth your money. Do you think the nintendo guys built this system giving their all? Do you think they are retards and didn't know how to make it have nice graphics? No, they know how to do it, but they didn't. Just give it some thought before you tell someone to make their own system.

Yeah because it's all about the graphics, stupid new age kids.But by saying, "WII SUCKS", you're showing your ignorance in that you think people really care what you think, you expect other to cater to you and when you don't get what you want, you shout "SUCKS". Really, make your own system if it sucks so bad as I'm sure you can do better, or keep your trap shut.
