    I must say, with the right settings WoW looks better than a few modern mmorpgs for me. The zones, artistic etc is sometimes breathtaking.

    Honestly to me this looks like anything else, but WoW.

    Looks great, but it kinda misses the "feel" of WoW.

    WoW graphically looks more than a decade old, I mean seriously even Oblivion from 2006 looks better (including it's terrible character models). It's just a game that is primarily played by players with less powerful hardware (China), so in a way it kinda makes sense.

    As for this guy, I suppose he did a decent job, although it doesn't look much like WoW. I'm more concerned if that's what a cartoony MMO would look like in 2018, because this still looks very outdated..Not to mention over the top..

    Even a single player RPG released 2 years later than WoW looks better. Hmm.

    WoW on max settings is rather underrated, if you ask me.  The environments and atmospheres around you tend to be pretty and immersive.  Add to that the simple fact that the game just generally runs extremely well.

    Sure, there are better-looking games, but at what cost?  BDO's texture pop-in is unforgivable in this day and age; I've had BnS and Tera both turn into slide-shows at the most inopportune times, more than once.  Throw in a lot of stutter and lag and frame rate dips that seem to be ubiquitous to games now as developers focus on money and not quality, and to me, that still puts WoW at the top of the heap in terms of performance, and in terms of players being able to enjoy the areas they are in and the tasks before them.

    Just my 2c.

    I get more of a Wildstar feel from that video, than I do a WoW one.

    It gives me a Flinstone not a WoW vibe. I've liked some of the other interpretations better. It looks nice, just not WoW to me.

    I've become surprisingly shallow in recent years and been spoiled by the attractiveness and realism modern graphics and engines are now capable of (BDO, ESO, GW2, etc.). If WoW looked anything like this video I'd have given it more of a chance in recent years, as it stands the graphics are just one of many features that prevent me from ever going back.

    Wheres the modern engine? Theres stuff that looks better than that already in Legion and most of what Ive seen in previews for BfA looks better as well (both fidelity and art wise).

    BDO combat gives me a headache and those pop ups hurts my eyes. But still a nice game haha

    Just for the record, Naughty Dog does not use UE4. They have their own proprietary engine.

    A night elf laughed at me for living inside a volcano. Well at least I don't have to worry about my mountain burning now do I! What... too soon?

    I'm surprised... Though it's not surprising if a guy has talent. It's a contribution to my favorite game. It's an incredible picture with decent graphics.

    I watched the video several times and was amazed. To some extent, I was even jealous that I myself did not have such ability to create video. So far, I'm just learning it on courses, combining college and recently acquired hobby in video creation. I thought I couldn't combine it because of my studies, but I'm helped by a website that provides professional essay writing services for students from the UK. And if you take into account making video for games it will be a new stage, but it's not a solvable task for me yet. I hope that my skills will soon be ready for that.

    Hey. I am a teacher in high school and work as an academic writer on the site. Video games are very cool. I am also a gamer. But it’s no secret that this is time consuming. If you are worried about the exam, you are poorly prepared, or just want to tighten your knowledge. Of course, the best option would be to sit and prepare, but if you have little time or you have other priorities, you can visit Paperell (https://paperell.com/capstone-project-writing-service).
