Post by radray12 »

What is the best 3-d looking Super Nintendo game (yes, I know Super Mario RPG is a SNES 3-d game, yet are there others?)

Eh? There were 3D games for the Apple II (Such as Wizardry)... granted, they sucked graphically, but 3D games have been around since 1979.

Well, some like to refer to it as 2.5 D, halfway between 2D and 3D.

Yes, Starfox did look pretty nice even though I have only played the N64 one.

"Super Noa's Ark 3D" has not so good graphics, Mario RPG graphics is better then Super Noa's Ark 3D.

2.5D means 3D effects without using polygons, (every 3D game since Quake uses polygons).

BTW: I thought 2.5D was using 3D graphic models in 2D games (Fake 3D).

Examples are that kirby 64 game, Super smash brothers, Donkey Kong.

It's not for SNES but Sonic 3-D Blast for Genesis was really cool.
