The feeling that BG3 looks more like a DOS3 than a real D&D Baldur's Gate game seems to spread a lot on the web. It is also mine.
I find that the artistic direction is quite good and the game looks really beautiful. From this point of view, this BG3 looks very good. Well done Larian! Now, the way battles are represented and managed, movement, highlighted objects, interactions with objects and even the interface ... it all looks too much like DOS. The character creation screen is even almost identical to that of DOS!
DOS made success for Larian. OK, that's very good. Now, I think players expect something else from BG3. More like Baldur's Gate and less like DOS.
This is the feedback I suspect they are hearing and can rectify in the final product.
