  • I thought gameplay trailers were supposed to show parts of the game where you're actually playing it, not cutscenes. Regardless of whether the cutscenes are in the game engine or not, it's not showing off gameplay.
  • They had the game and they played a video....Game.....Play
  • Dunno why I expected anything else, I mean this current get was the same, as well as the previous one a lot of the time.
  • It did look good. But totally overshadowed visually by The Medium. I expected Creed to be the best. But The Medium just completely blew it away.
