wtf? I played better-looking games at the arcade in the 1980s. If they can put Dead Space on a phone and make it look so damned good, why are we getting excited about stuff like this?

Due to the limitation of the phones hardware at present, your dream won't be fulfilled anytime soon. So stop whining, if you don't like it don't play it.

My point is that since Dead Space is available on Android phones, it proves that current phone hardware is *not* a limitation for high quality games. These other little "full HD" games are just in a completely different league. It's like getting excited about going back to play Zelda after you've been playing Skyrim.

A good game is not only about graphic! But well, I didn't expect such an ignorant like you to know that..

Ignorant is an adjective, not a noun, but I shouldn't expect a grammatically challenged junior high school student like you to understand that. ;)

I feel embarrassed for your lack of ability to come up with a creative insult.

I'm sure it isn't, but to speak of this as some kind of cutting-edge HD game that is "up to the standards of current high end devices" is a huge overstatement.

What an awful exaggeration you have developed with that comment of yours. "I played better-looking games at the arcade in the 1980s." No, no you have not. Zenonia 4 is not, nor was it ever meant, to have graphics similar to Dead Space.

Ok yes, that was an exaggeration on my part. However, the original news story post that this game is "up to the standards of current high end devices" is also a significant exaggeration.

"Zenonia 4 is not, nor was it ever meant, to have graphics similar to Dead Space."

With the style of graphics Gamevil did try to create, they succeeded magnificently. It's like a classic RPG look but reinvented with current high-end technology.

I'm happy for the fans who like the graphics style. Calling it "high-end technology", however, is a huge stretch IMO. (maybe that should have been my original post instead of the highly inflammatory 1980s arcade stuff) :)

Full 3D graphics isn't the only way to have impressive visuals in a game. The world of cell-shading, sprites, and animation has come a long way. Just because you don't seem to appreciate it doesn't mean the game has bad graphics.

Bad graphics is always going to be a relative term and in the eye of the beholder. But current high-end phones can do way better than this, therefore this is not "up to the standards of current high end devices" as the articles states.

Dude, seriously, stop making fool of yourself. I'm starting to feel really really embarrassed for you!

Do you really know the meaning of 'troll'? I doubt it.
Judging from the stupidity of your previous comments above, it's no surprise though.

Sure I do. I enjoyed Dungeon Hunter 1 and 2, and they seem way better than this game despite being 1-2 years old.

I love this game it brings back the nostalgia that older games like crono trigger, or the original zelda or final fantasy brought to the old nes and snes. It was a great time for gaming back then no hi def tvs or multiverse online tournaments just you and a 16 bit fun time. Everyone that is a true gamer has to like 90s throwbacks they bring us back to the time that even the greatest devs out there got there first inspiration.
