Well this was an experience.
I love a good video game trailer, they are fun to analyse and talk about with friends and people online. What do I love even more? Well if you’ve read my stuff before, you’ll know that I really love a good bad trailer. Like this one for instance. I particularly like it when a trailer is supposed to say “look how cool this game is” when it’s actually saying, “check out this janky ass mess”.
Slow motion footage from pretty much start to finish doesn’t capture the speed of football, so stop that. Giving us a close up of your dodgey collision and ball connection isn’t a selling point, see 0:36 for a mysterious gliding heel.
But that script. Woof, that’s a rough one. “We are the new era, the next generation”…Well, which is it? Finally though Gotze has been looking at me and monologuing for the better part of 2 minutes, why does he have to look up and be backlit at the end? Did something on the ground catch his eye? A rogue football perhaps? Better luck next time Konami.
