I was skeptical of the graphics at first as well. but they've grown on me, & i believe that they will scale up well for high end rigs. They dont look WoWesqe imho.
If i had a choice of something halfway cartoon & lifelike vs something like aion or guild wars 2 which is all sharp & shiny i'd go with the cartoon like art; simply because it looks like it would cause less eye strain.
Don't get me wrong i HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE blur, that's why I can barely even tolerate console games anymore. But if its rendered at a native res, cartoonish art doesn't bother me. It's still clear. Doesn't have to be photo-realistic, as long as it doesnt make me go cross-eyed and make me feel like im looking through glass covered with vasoline.

SWG died because they tried to immitate WoW. Sony was stupid & money hungry. They thought they could port it to PS2 and make bagillions of dollars, then they were too prideful to admit they made a mistake & let the ship sink.
EA has put more money into this game then any game in the history of mankind has had put into it. More money has been put into this game before its release than WoW has had put into it to this day, starting with the day it was an idea in some guys head, combined.
I HIGHLY doubt they'd be stupid enough to make the same mistake.
