Ars Technica: We are mere weeks away from the release of Gears of War 3, and I've been lucky enough to have played a few of the game's modes and seen it in action at various shows and events. The game looks great, and it seems like it will bring a few new ideas to the table while improving on the already-fun Gears of War 2. The game has nothing to worry about in the buzz department, and the Internet has dutifully been talking about the game's latest trailer.
The problem is that the trailer doesn't exactly play fair, and the use of music feels more like a gimmick that anything that gives an accurate idea of how the game will play. It's certainly a little different from what we're used to seeing in trailers for this kind of game, and that's a trick Epic has used to great effect in the past, but it's also something of a cheat: did any of the past games make you feel the emotions you experience watching these trailers?
