If you're looking for a sandbox, Wildstar won't be what you want.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Get in line with the rest of the "sandbox" crowd on this site LOL. you aren't special.

Unfortunately the "sandbox" crowd here don't know what they want.  If you were to take a poll there would be like 5-6 different types of games because everyone's definition is different.  With that being said I used to actually think the same way Lolnatic, however when pretty much everyone went crazy gaga over a very mediocre FFXIV then I knew this site was all talk and no show when it comes to sandbox.  Especially considering EQN took a hard hit, and it is the truest form of sandbox one can get for the genre.

 

With that being said and to address the OP, I too think Wildstar falls short of my expectations and it's a shame because it has some elements that I truly love about MMO's, such as: An Exploration centric playstyle, Player housing, Limited Hotbar/Action Combat.  But the overly cartoony gfx and sci-fi nature of the game has put me off.

 

Why would I be such a fan of EQN with its graphics style and not Wildstars?  Because I think EQN's is not Cartoony (except for the Kerren) plus the backdrop and world is natural looking.  Wildstar is pure Saturday Morning Cartoon and is more cartoony then WoW, IMO.

Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

When I played wow I never found it cartoony it felt like realistic fantasy for the most part but this wildstar's games graphic's are a hurdle I cannot jump....

Doesn't really matter to me, I'll judge the game on the other points. It could have been better though, but I'm usually alright with cartoonish style.

Same here.  Same with WoW and same with EQN.  All considered Cartoony by many but for what ever reason, EQN and WoW are fine, Wildstar just looks bad, to bad for my tastes.

that will probably be a better story when the game actually launches. You should save it.

If you were lucky enough to get into the beta and you are not trolling there might be a reason that your account does not work.  That is because the beta has been down for close to two months now while they make some big design changes.  They have not announced when closed beta 4 will begin.  You should try your acct and password then or simply attempt to access any beta forums that you may have been given access to.
