Well from what you tell me it sounds like Blizzard definitely has the gameplay aspect down. It sounds like everything is well thought out. I just wish that the game didn't look so dated.
I didn't recognize it until now, but all of those screens I posted before are from Burning Crusade which was just released. So they were taken being played on newer hardware. Does the game really look like this
I don't mean to keep harping on it, but no amount of AA or AF in the world can help that. It's just a graphical mess. I don't know how any of you can say it doesn't look just like an N64 clone. The trees especially look horrible. I can count every single one of the polys in them.
