Say what you like about the Adventure era art, but I think it looks a hell of a lot better than if they just lazily used a CG render.
It really depends on the render really, I find Unleashed and those what came after good ones, and as much I like 2D artwork, I don't mind if they only use those in promotional materials, afterall they depict quite well how the character looks in the game.
About the Adventure art, probably my comment wasn't specific enough in my case, I just didn't like the whole "boneless poses, vegetables as a mustache, and relics atitudes from an late 90's era that smelled", artwork.
for example, imo, while using the same art style, it's feels more natural to me and the whole "gonna have the tude" isn't forced into it, and feels very nice and it's actually one of adventure-style pics I like.
