Cinematic Game Trailers: Medal of Honor: Warfighter Trailer Explodes in our Face


"How good are game trailers getting these days?

With all the doom and gloom over the uninspiring sequelisation of gaming and copycatism in the shooter genre (I’m having fun with words today), one element has stood out to keep gamers interested in upcoming titles.

The game trailers...

The latest Medal of Honor: Warfighter trailer is a perfect example of this new breed of high quality trailer, grabbing our attention with a blend of story, stunning visuals, and explosive sound."

The story is too old to be commented.

I really liked it. I hope it focuses on the one guy rather than a hop on hop off train ride (excuse the train link...) from one person to another.

I find that disconnects me from the story. Spec Ops did a great job of the story by keeping with one guy.

Yea i agree. CoD does this and its so stupid.

I think COD needs to do it to really show the story (especially with MW3 when you have a world war going on. Not exactly plausible to have one guy do everything)

OT: I do not know about this trailer. I loved the previous MoH and to be honest it had the best single player story and campaign because it felt real (I know it was based on an actual event). This on the other hand feels they have tried to go for a more BF3/super hero direction. I get the feeling "Inspired by Actual events" means taking the Madrid bombings and making a story out of it that I feel is going to go out of control into the ridiculous realm

While I like the live action trailers, these ones are dramatic the same way while showcasing the actual game.

I don't like those FMV trailers that don't represent the end product's quality though.

I'll be surprised if this game is as emotive as they are trying to appear. It might just be explosions and 'follow' type stuff again.

I can't say that I'm really wowed. I mean, it's a fine trailer and all, but what about this story is supposed to pique my interest?

Seems like a fairly standard revenge/regret action movie setup. We've seen a million stories like this. And I don't see any reason to doubt that this'll be more-or-less identical to all the other modern shooters that we've been inundated with of late.

I'm more excited over the fact that the effort to make it at least a little different, a little more mature and intelligent is there; they can only improve from here, right?

Lets not forget how ridiculously hard it is to even come up with an intriguing, well crafted story, let alone implement one nicely into a video game, which in itself is a huge undertaking, even without a story.

Game looks great. Hopefully it will be good.

It could actually be quite good. Oh great...another game to buy, put on my shelf and wait til I catch up. I can't complain because everything I have played this year has been awesome, but long. It's taking me months to finish games now, and new great ones never stop coming. Oh well.
