Here are some video game ads that more than lived up to their promises.
Videos game trailers, like movie trailers, get you excited about what’s to come while giving you a quick look at it. What’s the difference? Video game ads don’t always show what the game is really like. The video might show graphics or gameplay that are completely new and different, but what you see isn’t always what you get.
Also, we can’t forget how nice it is that frame rate and bugs are left out. A lot of games don’t live up to their previews, which is a shame. Let us look at what went wrong with these 10 video game ads that were better than the games they were linked to.
“Not all pictures show up in the game.” That’s not enough to say it. In Bethesda’s Redfall, an open world full of vampires was offered. What more could you want?
It looks like a lot. The Redfall video doesn’t show how broken and old the game is.
The way the people are portrayed is also wrong. You might be hoping for cutscenes that look like real movies, but all you’ll see are a bunch of still images and a voice-over.
The trailer for Redfall isn’t all that different from other video game trailers, but it still shines brighter than the game itself.
DC Universe Online
The first video for DC Universe Online made people really excited. What you see in the trailer looks a bit more like what we’ll see in Injustice: Gods Among Us years from now.
The trailer shows fight scenes in a broken-down Metropolis that are full of excitement. A lot of figures show up, from the well-known Trinity to less well-known ones like Giganta and Circe.
The battles you fight in the game are nothing like the ones in the video. Instead, you have a bunch of different tasks to do in each crowded city you visit.
The game was more or less a fan experience for people who like DC Comics. It wasn’t really the exciting action movie you see in the trailer.
The ads for Marvel’s Avengers made it look like another great superhero game. In the preview, we see how the Avengers deal with a new danger and the terrible things that happen as a result.
As you watch the heroes fight different enemies, they show off their own special skills and powers, making you want to try them for yourself.
The story is good on its own, but the online, which was supposed to be the best part of the game, wasn’t as fun as it looked. Instead of being a unique multiplayer experience, the game had tasks that were done over and over again, making it hard to tell one from the next.
The Destiny video was without a doubt one of the best of 2014. It makes you feel like you’re watching a real movie, or at least a trailer for one.
Many people liked Destiny, but the trailer didn’t do a good job of showing what the game was really like, especially when you think about the games it was based on.
The Fireteam joking around was another fun part of the video. When you play co-op with other people, you can’t talk to each other, but the group feels like a trio you’d want to copy with your friends.
A better trailer doesn’t always mean the game is bad. There are times when trailers go too far and give the wrong impression of the game. Battlefield 2042 is one of those times.
A very cinematic and epic montage of different wartime situations, each one worse than the last, is shown in the trailer.
A lot of people felt that the game was good, but it did have some issues. Battlefield 2042 may have tried to be too much with its huge areas and crowded battlegrounds.
Thankfully, the game has been constantly changed to make it better.
The Dark Pictures: Little Hope
At first glance, a video game with stars like Will Poulter looks good, but adding a star doesn’t always make a game great. Little Hope is the second story in The Dark Pictures Anthology. The first story was Man of Medan.
The trailer shows parts of a scary story that takes place in an American town that is haunted by the witch trials.
That which you don’t see is a dull plot, a bad world-building job, overused jump scares, and a letdown finish. Despite having a lot of promise, Little Hope doesn’t live up to the success of Until Dawn. It ends up being the least popular book in the series.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity
The first Assassin’s Creed: Unity video looked like a movie. In the sneak peek, the famous hawk is seen flying over France in the 18th century, at the height of the French Revolution.
In addition to the setting, it’s clear that the game will also show a lot of real events and people. The first version of Assassin’s Creed: Unity was a bit of a surprise, even though it had a great setting, a new group of killers, and events based on real events.
Many people didn’t want to play the game because of its bugs. There were times when characters’ eyes would pop out of their heads and there would be hordes of people that you couldn’t get through. Not only that, but the story and lead character were forgettable compared to other games in the series.
The Order: 1886
There are other werewolf games, but The Order: 1886‘s video made them all look even better. The movie trailer tells the story of an old group whose job it is to hunt werewolves that are out in the streets of London in the Victorian era.
Along with a collection of exciting fights, characters and relationships are introduced. The story of Basket Random was cut down a lot, making it more like a movie.
What you see is what you get here: something to watch.The video makes the fight scenes look exciting, but the game isn’t really as playable as it seems.
A lot of the game is spent walking and looking at things, plus there are a lot of cutscenes. This works for an intro but not so much for a game.
The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum
There have been computer games based on JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings books over the years. To be honest, the news of a Gollum game came as a surprise.
There’s something interesting about him, but he’s not really the kind of hero you’d want to play a whole game with.
The video for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum from Daedalic Entertainment showed a fun game with an interesting story that wasn’t told. Unfortunately, the game’s dull settings, dull quests, and hard to use controls proved that it couldn’t live up to the hype of its trailer.
Batman Arkham Origins
Rocksteady made Batman: Arkham City and Arkham Knight, and WB Montreal made their own game to keep us busy until the final game came out. The idea behind Batman: Arkham Origins is very appealing.
During the holidays, you’re in a snowy Gotham City as Batman, who is just starting out as a criminal. A reward is put on his head, which brings in a lot of killers.
In the video, Batman fights Deathstroke and Deadpool in a shipping yard. The fight is very interesting and looks a lot like a real-life movie.
But it’s much more exciting to watch the fight in the clip than to play it. The game had bugs and took place in an open world that wasn’t very full.
The boss fights were also not nearly as exciting as they looked in the preview.
