Tales of monkey island on wii is unbearable

posted by cywarlock on - last edited - Viewed by 2.6K users

I love the monkey island series like many of us do but i cant even pretend to be satisfied with the product i've bought on wiiware today. for 10 dollars i dont expect the mona lisa but i sure as hell expect a game that functions without the insane amount of frame rate issues. so im just wondering... is this going to be fixed via update or is telltale going to lose customers?

  • At least you have the choice to buy individual episode of ToMI on Wii. :D

  • A lot of hyperbole here.

    That having been said, the framerate isn't as high as I was anticipating, especially compared to my laptop. (I don't quite meet minimum specs, but downloaded the demo anyway. The framerate at 640x480 with all fancy graphic details turned off was a bit chuggy so I went with the WiiWare version. But the WiiWare version has a very similar frame rate.) I'm not sure if this is a porting issue (if the PC version was done first, and the WiiWare is a port), or something else. But looking at Call of Duty, Mario Galaxy, etc., I would figure the Wii can push TMI's graphics at a smoother frame-rate than that.

    The audio is indeed severely compressed. Not to the point of unplayable. But it's definitely noticeable. Not at all TellTales's fault. This is a simple WiiWare file-size limit problem.

    Loading times I noticed, but they weren't killing me.

    For twice the price. Wish Nintendo sold packs.
    When this comes to XBLA it won't only be in a conveniently priced pack it will also come with Achievements and some bonus content like themes or Display pics.

    I barley touch my wii because I don't feel I achieved anything and It doesn't seem very.. personal

  • I'm sorry, maybe I just don't get it. But achievements truly seem like a waste to me.

  • @Dan2593 said: For twice the price.



    Liar! It's only ~1.43 times the price of the season set!

  • I think the underlying issue here is wiiwares ridiculous 40meg limit.. Until that gets fixed it's making telltales job almost impossible

    Yeah, I just posted something similar in another thread, I totally agree.

  • I'm sad to say, I have to agree. Although it does run better than the demo did on my PC, it's still extremely laggy, and almost buggy at times.

  • If it's that bad, they shouldn't have released it on Wii.

  • I've always been a console gamer. TOMI is my first PC game. I bought Sam & Max on the 360 after playing TOMI on my PC, and I have to say that adventure games just feel right on the PC. That's my newbie opinion anyway.
