Posting those two links only showed me that most people with
working vision can Clearly see that Cybermorph is superior, in both color and crispness AND FRAME RATE.
But not color choice, imagination, or design.
Sorry Gorf, but that's my first time seeing it, and my first thought was that it'd be an awesome tech demo for the Amiga, if anyone wanted to try it. But between the fog, and the empty world, I was reminded less of an epic space adventure and more of those tiny suckerfish that clean aquariums out...
It's great if you're looking for a neglected game to love and nurture, or something Zen to occupy your hands while you add up your bills, but there's a reason Starfox shot it down at retail.
I just checked out both of those Utube videos and whom ever did that Cybermorph movie isn't even showing cybermorphs better levels or scenes, with tons of enemies and buildings, or even the best levels with cool mountains and valleys or it's cool gameplay, it's obviously a hand-picked "show" in an attempt to once again make the Jaguar look bad, and it STILL looks better than Star Fox techinally, but that certainly isn't the best Cybermorph "movie" that could be made. And as for StarFox, it shotdown the Cybermorph in retail, one, becuase Cybermorph was a PACK-IN game, not even sold seperately until a year or two later, and as everyone knows, Nintendo had bottomless pockets back then for marketing, while Atari had a shoe-string budget and almost non-existant advertising. PERIOD. Oh, and if there was a movie on Utube of it to show, but there's not, I could show you a 16-bit Atari STE game called Zero5 (nothing like the jaguar version) that blows away StarFox graphically, in framerate, and in design and gameplay. Or, a game called Epic, or Reach for the Skies, or many others just using a 68000 chip!
But this argument was about tech more than gameplay and NO ONE here is saying that Cybermorph is a tour-de-force Jaguar game in tech OR gameplay. How about a comparison of StarFox to Battlemorph or Iron Soldier 1&2, etc.? PLEASE! your argument is just as lame as the others. But I still like the GAMEPLAY of Cybermorph MUCH better than StarFox, but of course that's an OPINION, just like yours and theirs.
Now, how about we compare the ON-RAILS StarFox shooter to OTHER on-rails shooters for the Jaguar (and Sega CD) which BLOW AWAY StarFox graphically, on EITHER the SEGA CD or Jaguar and they are even SPRITE based, instead of polygons!!!
Unfortunately these movies are very dark and grainy and don't show it all that well, AND they don't show the incredible on-planet levels similiar to StarFox. but that's all I can find right now. I wish there were better example movies of Soul Star for the Jag&Sega CD to show...can someone help me out with that? But at least they are far more similiar types of games to Starfox and far more suited to show how inferior StarFox is to them, in regards to on-rails shooters. Cybermorph is in a completely different league (like NFL compared to Arena AFL) and is so technically superior it shouldn'g even be compared to SF.
