really cool, too bad they dont make games that look like this..
the cinematic "world" looks nothing like the cartoony exaggerated game i just dont think the two mix very well at all. they are both very nice looking but couldn't be further from each other... i would much rather see gritty realistic in game graphics, OR bright whimsical cinematics.. its pretty silly to mix the two.
if i didn't know any better, and saw the cinematic, then went and bought the game i would be soo pissed off when it looked absolutely nothing like what they were using to promote it.
just my 2 cents.

Yup, my thoughts exactly. I certainly enjoy the look of both, but they have nothing to do with one another, especially as promotional material. If the cinematics were just meant to be enjoyed on their own, like Final Fantasy Advent children, that'd be one thing, but they are advertising a product that isn't even close in terms of look, feel, and visual polish.
I hear the cinematic dept is really separate from the game devs internally at Blizzard. It really shows through in the fact they both seem to do their own thing with no regard to the others product.
