And the idea that it was done on the cheap is all kinds of silly. I mean, do people not realize the licensing fees and such associated with amassing such a roster? And the mention of the graphics is just as silly. Anyone at all familiar with stylistic choices? A visual choice was made to reflect the nature of the gameplay. Engine-pushing, life-like graphics wouldn't be at all appropriate given this particular project, or even necessary really (as that shouldn't be what makes or breaks a game). People who put so much stock into graphics are only doing themselves a disservice as most of the best games nowadays aren't necessarily top-tier lookers.
