Re: Official WWE 13 Thread
the models are shiny and some look pretty good...but for the most part, THQ's models are fucking awful.
True, but no CAW can compare to up-close photo referencing, and the use of professional tools for character modeling, rigging and texturing. If you ever used ZBrush or Maya, you know what i'm talking about. The create a superstar feature is THQ's proprietary clay molder, you can do some impressive work, but you're still very limited with what's at your disposal.
the character models look fucking awful at times because the artists up at Yuke's are ether lazy, or got rushed by time constraints. Sometimes they'll hit new model entrys out of the park, but it's not easy to start from scratch with a completely new character. Their established models for the reacurring superstars are usually spot on.
