Pacific Rim Game Trailer Underwhelms
Its no secret that I’ve been salivating over footage and images of Pacific Rim since it’s announcement… and I rubbed my hands together with glee when I heard there’d be a game tie-in released alongside the movie. Unfortunately the initial impressions haven’t met my lofty expectations.
When I initially saw this trailer, I thought it was a mobile game… and I was psyched. Having it on iOS or Android would be amazing, and graphically at least it looked ok. However upon realising this will be an Xbox Live, PSN and PC title… now the game is looking like a rushed crappy movie tie-in title.
Check it out for yourselves:
Have I been overly harsh in my initial assessment of the game just based on this brief trailer? To me the game doesn’t look of the right quality to be an Xbox 360 or PS3 title… I even made sure to re-watch the trailer in 720p, but no, it still looks shabby to me.
The Pacific Rim game is developed by Japanese company Yuke’s Co LTD (“Who” I hear you say… well they developed the Real Steel game for PS3 & Xbox 360 too. See… now you understand), and will be available this summer once the movie drops.
