ButtonMasher writes - Three weeks ago EA released some new screenshots and a 2D trailer, for the most part I thought it was an interesting diversion from the normal in-game trailer, it turns out there is something more to it
I don't know how anyone else feels, but that really sucks for me. The visuals in this game are gorgeous and I hated that animated trailer. I'll still likely buy it since the gameplay is what matters most in a title like this... but damn... that's some disappointing news. Ugh... I guess I'll just have to suffer through the Kim Possible sh!t.
that just KILLED this game for me. I'm not sure I was going to buy it now, and before it was a DEFINITE sale.
Cool. I like that. Just like Max Payne. Comic panels FTW. Let's hope they manage a decent atmosphere.
max payne's comic book style was very sweet.
Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops did too.. and might i say, it was great
I think its a great break away method from the "WOW look at the graphics" factor. Even if its the story being told in 2D, its a great change in atmosphere in the game. I have to say they have a great art direction where they are taking this.
If it's anything like the storybook trailer they released earlier, I'm disappointed :<
i dont like the art in the 2d story segments, animated is fine aslong as its high quality animation, not flash animation, its choppy and just sorta lazy seriously it looks like high quality flash animation on newgroundz, its good for flash but not for a game.....bleh
I thought we all new about the 2D thing a while ago?
but when Folklore did that it was boring and backdated.
Folklore wasn't animated, it was comic book style, with no voices or anything. It was boring :/ That being said, I'm not looking forward to this. Hopefully they get better animators than the ones that did the trailer, cause some movements were quite bad (running especially)
I hope we can skip it. Its taking a step backwards from the gorgeous visuals of the gameplay. Imagine playing BF:BC and suddenly the cutscene comes up but its in 2D so it would certainly kill the immersiveness. I remember playing games back in 90s when cutscenes were CGI and actual game graphics sucked now the ingame is better than the cutscens how come?
I have to say i don't really like the 2-D animation for storytelling. Well at least not of that quality. It reminds me of a E-Surance commercial and less like a video cinematic. I'm high impressed with the voice acting though from that trailer. Sounds like a perfect match for Faith and the performance is delivered in a very convincing manner.
The Trailer they released sucked so if they are doing something similar I'm really sad. Mirror's Edge is close to the top of my list of games I really wanna see and this just kinda put it down the list a little.
Always puts me off. Imagen Uncharted with 2d cutscenes. Yeah, exactly
with 2d cutscences. The cutscences accounts for 20-30% of my love for that game.
