>Arguably the isometric rendering looked the best of all the methods

I disagree just based on the few screenshots here. The isometric looks so generic. The latest version almost looks like a 3DS game (especially with the draw distance), but at least it has some character. The isometric screenshot looks like an iPhone RPG that I would see in ads but never actually play.




But I love that look, I actually want to see videos of the first revision

'Arguably'.


That's actually not an entirely uncommon reaction - some people loved the iso mode, other people thought it looked too much like a F2P game. :)


I'm among those that loved it. It had a really endearing charm to me which the newer methods haven't entirely captured. But that's outweighed by my excitement at what the newer methods have made possible. :)
