The trailers for the games are always so....rendered. I don't have a problem with that. It's just that whoever makes the game obviously thinks everyone are idiots. They are ridiculous and nothing like the games. Watch the trailer or Call of Duty 2 trailer it's so fast and hectic. They just seem to be leading the gamers on. No other company gets these complaints. I actually remember seeing an article on IGN somewhere about how people are complaining, that hey are not advertising their real game. And with the new Call Of Duty 3 trailer, it becomes evident that, they embelish the true capabilities of their games. If you don't believe me, have a look at it yourself.


And what's even funnier is that they down grade the graphics of their previous games in the trailer to brag about the new game.

a lot of e3 trailers have been pre-rendered, once the game moves more into development, then we see more ingame trailers

i agree with overwatch though the whole "introducing cod3" thing and then just having some 3d rendered thing is a bit of a let down...are they using a new engine or a "new" engine like they claimed for cod2? anyway i'm looking foward to seeing some in game stuff....on a related note the new BIA game looks good.

Anyone that's speculating on buying a game based soley on trailers is not IMO using a rational mindset though. Obviously trade shows such as E3 are full of hype. I don't suck up to magazine reviews & trailers or ever trust a game enough to preorder it. Many of the game mags anymore are biased towards consoles, and there's just too many variables to know for sure what you're getting by looking at what's basically a movie short ad. It's common that a lot of cutscenes, intros, screenshots, etc, get exposed early on, then end up getting cut in production. I agree that's it's misleading, especially when you consider the excuse many devs use for not telling us too much about games in early production is due to non disclosure agreements, meaning when they finally DO tell us something, it's often not a good representation of what we're actually going to get. There's a sort of disclosure hypocracy going on there.

Bottom line, like it or not we have to take the hype into account, see it for what it is, and not get too caught up in it. I'd much rather see slow detailed examples of what a game's engine, lighting, shadows, and physics can do, like Remedy did with Alan Wake at last year's E3. They blew everyone away with the reaslim of the realtime climatic effects in an outdoor environment. Trailers more and more are becoming passifiers for the preorder crowd, showing the rendering of technical details are for those that want to look at the guts of the game, not just how it plays. Unfortunately, often times there doesn't seem to be anything early on that demonstrates both well.

yeah but honestly..giving someone the fair deal is more likely to make them buy it then throwing trash at them that is CGI or digitally rendered. If i wanted to ..I can pick that 'trailer' apart and show false advertizing there probably won't be a battle with Germans for their gun like that ever unelss its scripted same with death of the guy you follow,same with the movement and getting around the tank..its ll ull and would actually not make me wanna buy. I always wait till a friend gets it and then I play.

There just trying to get people excited. It was the same with that new zelda game at 2001 they showed for the gamecube. Then 2 years later Nintendo gives their fans something they dont even care for.

Yeah that was major crap! I ve gotten burned by COD2 and I am a pc only gamer so IM not gonna buy it anyways.But even if I did here r my predictions of what will happen 1. It will be a repeat of cod2 (arcade game no realism) 2.I'll wish I saved my money 3. many key features will taken out of the game (as cod2 did with tanks firerate,ect)and finally 4.I'll pray to every god for a better ww2 game!
