    It's a bit old, true, but I really like the style and much more than newer games like GW2, TERA and SWTOR. I'm just not a fan of the realistic'ish graphics.

    Do you mean their MMO version?

    I saw a quick video of it the other day, and they are actually using a similar type of graphics WoW uses. Can't relocate the video/article though, so might just be dodgy memory.

    WoW ages very well, compared to the other mmos out there. I like the cartoony look it suits the game well.
    I'm neither Pro or Anti Flying, I just have a different opinion on the matter.

    Always thought that the cartoon style goes well with wow.

    They have aged really well and the "add ins" they do between expansions keep it alive and well. I also think the style makes it work a little better with the "masses" that play the game. I only wish they allowed it to take more advantage of newer video cards. More of a mechanical over haul to bring it more up to modern times behind the scenes rather then a face lift to change the look and feel of the game.

    The style is perfect. Even with the increased attention to detail they manage to keep the old sort of 'style'. The attention to detail in interiors in MoP is simply amazing.

    I'm highly satisfied with WoW graphics.
    pencil is cool

    I like the art style, more "realistic" gfx never really worked for me (and are that much closer to the infamous uncanny valley). And with the cartoony grafics, it's much easier to get good effects even on lowend machines. Another good point is that the cartoony grafics age extremely well.

    The game looks pretty great on ultra settings for me, and to be honest, after seeing the new MMOs and their realistic graphics, I can't help but feel like they look absolutely awful. I mean, can you imagine playing WoW with Skyrim of Swtor graphics? How terrible and boring would that look.

    I play on ULTRA as well, and tbh, WoW's graphics are PITIFUL compared to say, SWTOR.

    The fact that so many people voted that they like WoW graphics makes me wonder if there are so many people out there with Pentium 4 PCs after all or that so many people posting here are fanboys who tend to lack common sense, thus making their opinion worthless.



    I play WoW b/c it is a better game than SWTOR, but not because of WoW's terrible 7 year-old graphics engine.
    NINJA TURTLES as the next playable WoW race/class combo. WoW has got Kung Fu Pandas, Pokemon and recently even Transformers in it, so I don't see how Ninja Turtles would be any less pathetic than current "WoW" is.

    I like wow art style but I wouldn't mind if they tweak old race models, and some of the npc's as well.

    I remember when i played SWTOR (at ULTRA settings) I used to stop and just stare at the breathtaking graphics. The last time this happened to me in WoW was in 2005, in Tanaris.

    For me, good graphics mean: can I understand what's happening in my screen? If the answer is yes then for me the graphics are great.

    Having played both SWToR and WoW, I have to say: SWToR grafics are nice, but breathtaking? C'mon, you really gotta see a doc if that takes your breath. (Neither does WoW, mind you). Although I have to agree, Tatooine looks great and deserty.

    Problem is, still images can look better (and usually do, if the one who took them is worth his salt) than the actual thing in motion. SWToR looks way more clunky than WoW when in motion (lets not mention more obvious clipping)

    People, the argument of "Oh, but they have to keep the graphics 10+ years out of date to make sure everyone can play the game." Is not true.

    OT: I quite like the art style, but a lot the assets need improving at this point.

    they've been adding graphical updates bit by bit, but most are in the form of higher res textures and higher density model meshes.

    The thing that's still missing from wow that would instantly bring it in line with the any current gen game is a realtime lighting model, possibly a radiosity solution and the use of detailed specular and normal maps to apply light detail and reflections to the models.

    I've always like the look and feel of WoW. I wouldn't mind if they upgraded the graphics though (new models, smoother animations, etc), but I like the style that they have.
