100% agree (about SC2 graphics and sounds, for example photon cannon animation, model and sounds).
Maybe it's impossible to draw BW-style graphics in any modern game engines?
Blizzard has suffered so much attrition on their art team that basically everyone left has only worked on WoW. I doubt there are even very many people left from the WC3 era. There was actually a point a couple years into WoW when a large amount of the team turned over almost at the same time and the art style of the game visibly changed.
So basically, SC2 looks like Warcraft because the artists don't know any other style.
