I was always a big fan of the old tile-based style - so I don't have a problem with it. I think it has a distinctive old-school charm, and I can say from personal experience that if you can do decent 2D art - it's much easier to make a reasonably good looking game in that way, than a free movement 3D game.
Given the high level production values of modern 3D games - it's pretty hard to create a game in that way and not have it look very "quaint" if you don't have the manpower or money available.
So, in many ways - I think it sounds like the right choice.
However, if this was a big budget title with very experienced people behind it - I'd have preferred a 3D engine as well.
