I have compared them and let me tell you...it's like a completely different activity. GoW is much better. Higher resolution, better AA and AF, better lighting, better detail...everything.

QFT

Madden NFL 07 for Wii got the same score as the 360 one, because it's much funner to play, even with the worse graphics.

They're not that bad, actually.

GoW has textures exactly the same as TP

I am serious, GoW has the same muddy, brown textures

They're similar

Well, it's about twice the power of the GCN.  Now, most games last gen were built on engines designed for the PS2, so the GCN didn't really get it's power used to the fullest except for games like RE4 and Rougue Sqaudren II and III.  Overall it technically has more power than the Xbox, but since it doesn't have shaders built into the hardware, you probably won't be seeing as many games with tons of normal mapping as you did on the Xbox (IE Doom3, Riddick).  Still, it should be able to easily put out games that look qutie a bit better than BLACK did on the Xbox.
 
So, overall you should see a decent jump from last gen to the Wii, but it won't be as significant as it'll be looking at the 360 or PS3.  Super Mario Galaxy is one game coming out this year that looks definately better than last gen, and Metroid Prime 3 (when they show the updated build, we haven't seen it since September) should look really, really good compaired to what's out there now.
 
Madden is a weird exception though.  It looks definately worse than the PS2 version of the game, even though the Wii is definately more powerful than the PS2 and GCN (and more-so than the Xbox, if it doesn't include Normal Mapping).  However, it plays really well.  Hopefully they'll get their act together graphically for the next game.
