Pretty epic trailer. Like all good action trailers, pan shots of a peaceful enviroment (in this case a city) lull you into a false sense of security, and amaze you with insane visuals. Which this trailer does really well; i had to check i was still in my room when watching this in fullscreen with headphones. Involving stuff.
Transition into a 1st person view? I thought as much. I was left thinking this guy must have 20-20 vision, because this looks freakin’ amazing. Eat your heart out CoD (i went there). Slo-mo camera views through your squad mates; moving out to execute a mission; a tranquil enviroment…
All ruined by shooting an RPG. It’s always the RPG..
You then dive into the action; shooting down the scope and destroying innocent civilians personal transport (pretty low dude); taking cover behind brick walls to avoid being mown down by all to realistic enemy fire. The intensity of the battlefield seems pretty realistic (not that i’ve ever been on the front lines), with loads of explosions, and not so stealthy gunfire.
The end of the trailer is pretty mysterious. The camera starts to ‘flicker’, and strange occurrences become apparent, such as the entire ground moving towards you like a wave in the sea. Funky ground waves; it’s a thumbs up from me. There is definately something different about this game, i just suck at analysing trailers, as you very well know.
Overall, i’m pretty sure this game is about war. With a possible subtle romance? Maybe i’m reading into things too much.
Pretty sweet trailer though!
8/10 trailer. Lacks the epic trailer music.
