Check out these trailers for the game The Secret World. I don’t think I’ve seen a game cinematic that looked this good in a while. The first thing that comes to my mind are how good the characters look. If this was not mentioned to be a game and they slapped that green preview info before the trailer, I would have thought it was an actual movie. This trailer looks like it was done by the same team who did Final Fantasy The Spirits Within. Or somebody from Blur Studio. It’s just that good. The details are amazing. Take a look at the 2nd trailer with the girl’s sweater. Look at all the thread reacting to the light. Not to mention the feathers from that creature. There is so much eye candy.
The Secret World is an MMO game similar to World Of Warcraft created by a company called Funcom. It will be coming out for the Xbox360 and the PC. There seems to be some exclusivity gonna on as there was no mention of the game coming to the PS3.
I ask this. Look at the trailers. Now why can’t we get movies that look like that. The closest we got that looked like that was FF: The Spirits Within. Beowulf was ok, but I still want more variety in my CG movies other than animals, dolls, and cartoony humans. Come on Hollywood, if some game company can do it, why can’t you.
