What were they thinking? How could they get it so utterly and completely wrong? Why, 2K? Why?! The pre-E3 trailer did little to clear up the situation, instead intoducing some brightly-lit cover combat sections that seemed at odds with the moody visual style they were shooting for. With the burning need to know more throbbing at the front of my mind, I sat down in their lavishly-appointed demo theatre… where 2K Marin wasted no time in admitting that they’d made a huge mistake."
