Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
A little too pretty...but fun.

One of my favorite things about RPGs is character customization, and this game has that. Three character "trees" allow you to mix and match abilities relating to a variety of melee weapons, types of magic, or bows.
In playing the demo, I was turned off by the too pretty WoW environment and character design. Now that I am a ways into the game, I have gotten used to it and actually appreciate some of the artwork involved. I normally prefer a grittier, darker, more realist style of game design, but I think the softer, more colorful art style works ok for the fantasy setting in this game.
The Bottom Line
I haven't played WoW, but having seen screenshots and read reviews of it (and seen South Park's "Make Love not Warcraft"), I would say this is similar to a single player WoW with somewhat more advanced graphics.
