With a month and a half left until release — barring another delay — it's hard to say how the game is going to be received critically or commercially. What I do know is if Sega and Gearbox put out another trailer like this one, I'm not going to let through my front door (or down my tubes).
The trailer tries to frame the game as a movie — not unusual considering the IP — but I don't think it works. For one, the voice actors are weak and ineffectual, starting with "Captain Cruise" and his "crew", which sounds like the title for a Sunday morning cartoon rather than a band of hard-as-nails marines.
The dialogue in general is uninspiring and the vision is not compelling. And can someone tell me what a "liquid" situation is? Does it mean it's raining at the drop zone, or is it describing the contents of your pants shortly after arrival?
The aliens, however, look great.
