Is it just me (I know it’s not, the internet encompasses all opinions et al, just run with it, OK) or is this mini-trailer for Gears of War 3 almost entirely composed of…I want to use the word ‘meh’, but that doesn’t do it justice. See for yourself.
I know that Mr. Fenix is meant to be the übermensch, but does his voice have to be that gravelly? There’s so much grit in there that the Highways Agency should hire him to shout at the roads when it gets a bit snowy. This kind of angry shooter normally gets on my nerves – Bulletstorm and Duke Nukem Forever spring to mind – but I’ve always found the Gears series to be simply stupid rather than troubling and this teaser hasn’t done much to change that. Still, watching mindless stuff like this makes a change from revision. Not a great one, mind.
