Yeah, yeah, I know, not everyone's favorite game. But when the trailer launched, Warcraft 3 and Frozen Throne expansion were fresh in my mind, Blizzard was at its peak, and the trailer just breathed that Warcraft 3 atmosphere and that MMO-like sense of wonder that triggers the imagination. To me, the trailer managed to capture those first glorious journeys through the world of Azeroth.
Its haunting melancholy and vibe sets the TSW trailer apart from other ones, MMO trailers and other gametrailers alike. It kinda reminded me of Gears of War's 'Mad World' trailer. The trailer uses ingame rendering instead of CGI, and in its distinctive imagery and atmosphere it fits perfectly TSW's original setting of the despair and a world teetering on the brink of the abyss and apocalypse. Simply magnificent.
A shared spot. Of course, Blur Studios who made the SWTOR trailer(s) based on Bioware's script are always good for excellent trailers. And they really were spectacular, showcasing the classes, conflict and culture of both factions. But to me it didn't fully capture the actual gameplay experience, or at least less than the trailers captured the essence of a game of those other MMO favorites I mentioned. Tabula Rasa had a great starter story and setting as shown in the trailer - the last surviving human refugees of a doomed and destroyed earth rising to exact their vengeance in memory of their home, I liked it very much. Shame the game got canceled.
