voiced over by Colonel Antal
and Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford
, but sadly, the game's audio overshadows their voice a tad too much :( You can watch it from this very website or grab it at GameSpot (an HD video is available for GameSpot Plus subscribers).
If you can't wait till the movie plays out, I have taken a few off-the-cuff notes:
Not very different from the previous installments gameplay-wise, barring the tactical map which seems more useful and usable than the previous, quirky "Situational Awareness View".
Much more gory with blood effects from the likes of F.E.A.R.
Startling cutscenes kudos to a very smooth character animation system which allows for strong emotional moments
Interesting mix of first-person and third-person views; dunno if it's automatic but it seems to work out well
Nifty zoom effect as the player is on the brink of shooting a foe
