Meh. Better to be consistent and stick with either the pure CGI or live action approach. In this case, the CGI approach yielded better results.

Budget seems to dip once the N7 soldier appears on screen, kind of turned me off the ad.
Feel like it the CG trailer covered this better, but oh well.

Ah well, it is just a stupid trailer, won't affect enjoying the game itself etc etc. (Speaking of which, i need to do one final playthrough of both ME and ME2 very quick...

Hopefully the launch trailer will live up to the ME2 trailer. Both of these have been so meh, it's like they saw that every other AAA game has a big marketing gimmick and just decided to do all of them.

I don't know why they make it sound like we're going to participate in war to take back Earth. Okay that'll probably happen at the end but I thought in the majority of the game we'll just be going from one planet to another *begging* other species to help us out?

You really don't know? They've got their sci-fi nerd audience on lock; now they're going for the dudebro shooters fans. Who gives a sit about the galaxy when you can Take Earth Back™?

I loved ME1 and enjoyed ME2, but I am not excited at all to play ME3. I've watched most trailers and gameplay videos that's out so far and it all looked boring to me. Maybe DA2 made me lose all hope that I had in Bioware or something.

Just show an in-game trailer with Martin "Illusive Man" Sheen classing it up.

Reach's ad campaign was something all other games should strive for. (as well as H3 and ODST)

This ME3 ad was okay, but not as well done as those were by a long shot. Unfortunate since the Mass Effect universe is definitley some rich material to draw from.

Not a great trailer, CG one was better and they should run that one more.

Would have liked to have seen them go all out with some practical effects/make-up, and shown a live action Asari or Turian or something. Of course, that may have turned off the casual buyer, so what do I know?

In general, I find live action trailers to be a bit much for video games. I do agree that those Halo ones were excellent though.

Edit : I actually like this fan made trailer in the related video's, using Virgil actually emphasizes what I used to love about this series : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JmVf...eature=related

I hope it is at least half as half as good as the ME2 launch trailer. It would still be ages above the CG and live action one.

I really liked it to be honest. The emotions/purpose and war/love themes make a way to (try) to connect people.

I think they do good ads, however if you never played this game (ME1,ME2) and watch this ad, you may get a different idea about the game. Same happened with Dragon Age 2, they had great ads and amazing visuals with good sound and whatnot but then I played the game and there was nothing I could relate to the ads I've seen. It was sad...

Also, better with Kinect? In my opinion no, it's not.

Can't wait for this one, will be getting the Collectors Edition.

I much prefer a Mass Effect 2 style trailer where they stick with in game footage. I suppose live action can be done right and might even appeal to non-gamers. The problem is though that this type of trailer doesn't necessarily show what makes Mass Effect great; it makes it seem like some generic action game.

That is just blind hater talk there. Kinect vastly improves the gameplay and does it in an appropriate way. it is not a gimmick. It adds new tactical depth to the game. how can that not improve the game?

Meh, doesn't stack up to the rest of the Live-Action trailers a few have posted here. I agree they should have just cut out the part with Shepard, seems like it would have helped the tone they were going for. Maybe cut to a shot of the combined Turian/Alliance/etc fleet making their way towards Earth.
