Gonna be honest here. This would be a lot better if the people were airships. It would at least be a more exciting with less demanding animation requirements. You would be relying on lots of very good animation and modeling to make this more of an immersive game, and at least with airships you could cut it down to just very good modeling and some decent animation.
