Is there a point at which the graphics aren't the selling point, the determining factor to anticipating a new game? I find this trailer odd in that it says absolutely nothing, its graphics show off exactly what we're likely to see of all next gen games and in terms of gameplay, it's another game that revolves around shooting and climbing.
I'm not complaining about that as shooting is one of the main ingredients to my gaming world. But next generation game trailers will have to show me a little more than what amounts to a quick cliche conversation, a few explosions and a character sliding around, appearing to be in peril, but as we all know, at worst, may take a couple of attempts at timing button presses to watch our game avatar escape danger! Surely at some point game trailers will need to be a little more sophisticated and intelligent and demonstrate more than a glimpse at a game engine at work.
Perhaps I'm expecting too much and should accept that the only difference between the marketing of a game now and one in the future will be a demonstration of better animation, improved graphical detail and high resolution textures. In which case, is this not just another pretty looking shooting and climbing game, no? I'll remain optimistic that more games in future have the characters, story, script, acting-quality and cinematic feel of the original Mass Effect and Modern Warfare (outstanding highlights of this generation in my opinion). Isn't it time we were sold the journey and the fight rather than how good the fight can look in high definition!?

Facial animation wasn't realistic, body animation was same old same old, particle effects just looked like typical average ones. Smoke effects can look perfect if you only see them once and the sparks were pretty much disappearing before they hit the ground and not exactly bouncing individually. There was nothing next gen about this. I think people are listening to the hype and letting that affect them rather than looking at it properly.
