Open Letter: How to rate graphics for a Wii game

Dear mainstream gaming magazines and Web sites,

When reviewing a Wii game, put on your console blinders and answer this simple question when “rating” the title on graphics.

Do the graphics in this Wii title:

A) Distract or take away from the game play experience.
B) Complement the game play adequately.
C) Enhance the game play.

Graphics are meant to complement, not supersede game play or fun (see also: Clubhouse Games). This question can be applied to any system. And hey, have fun out there.
