    Indeed. I will probably buy ME3 cause i played the other 2. If the trailers alone had to sold me, they have failed... EPIC FAIL
    If you like prog rock, then you're with me. If you dont, you are against.

    Let's not forget, the advertising campaign and pre-release trailers for ME2 were shockingly bad too, which didn't have any real reflection of the quality of the game.
    I write about them video games at these locations

    True enough. Jacks trailer was bloody terrible, yet she actually turned out to be one of the most interesting & sympathetic characters once you got past the veneer.

    Oh, look a Live-action trailer for ME3.

    No, really.

    That's basically the approach taken in ME1, with the three main planets all hinting at what was really going on. Done well, the missions in ME2 could have been awesome. As it was, it felt like playing episodes of the original Star Trek, where all the plots stand-alone, when I wanted to be playing Deep Space 9, and having individual stories that are tied together.
    Well IIRC they did kind of divide up your recruitment process into about 3 stages which occured around main storyline beats, but I do agree that they could/should of tied in all of the recruits story lines into the reaper threat through some background device 'you were on Eden prime when....' etc, etc

    A really odd move to go for Live-action tbh. I sure hope this is just something EAs marketing department came up with, and they don't have this sort of thing inserted into the actual game. This sort of thing just makes me instantly think of Command & Conquer. I was half expecting a screen flash & Joe Kucan to pop up looking crazed & Machiavellian.
