Posted on March 31, 2008, Jonathan Dawn of Fantasy Trailer Shows Nothing We Haven't Seen Before
Here’s a tip, game developers: do not make a game trailer where your company logo is more interesting and eye-catching than the actual game. Take this trailer for Dawn of Fantasy, for example. Already, I’d rather know more about how the words “Reverie Entertainment” came to be assembled by robots in some warehouse than I would about a fantasy-based MMO/RTS hybrid. Nevertheless, Dawn of Fantasy will allow players to create a stronghold from the ground up and try to invade other strongholds with a roaming army, all against a completely derivative fantasy backdrop. The whole video features a lengthy voice over that could probably be summed up into two lines: “You ever seen Lord of the Rings? It’s like that.” It’d be nice if they’d highlight something really, truly groundbreaking; because I’m having trouble picking that out in this sunnier recreation of The Battle of Helm’s Deep.
