So from watching/reading previews it seems that a lot of people expected this to be a very bland and boring game, judging it by the art style. 

I mean lets be honest, for a capcom game, it's not as flashy as their best sellers. 

Me personally however, while at first I thought the art style was oddly dull, after playing the game I found it oddly realistic. The way trees sway, and the way the grass looks, the normal colors of peoples clothes, it just felt "real", which is why I think people originally found it hard to gain any interest.

I think it works great for the game however, standing still and watching the griffon fly around at the beginning makes it seem like a movie then a video game. 

 

what do others think?

I like it, the game really shines in the dense forests and more distinct location like Barta Crags.

yeah the tree movement with a mix of sun beams pouring through really gets me in terms of visual appreciation

Not really a fan. One of the reasons that early teasers didn't have me interested.

Most of what I've seen has been pretty bland and mediocre artistically but the game is a blast to play so it's another lesson in not judging a book by its cover. Still, I'd have appreciated a more stylized approach, especially with the pedigree the team working on it has.

This basically. Gameplay wise it's looking like a winner which is the most important, but the art style is nothing special.
