It’s been released finally, and I have to admit that I’m a bit underwhelmed. It looks good, and I enjoy the bits of comedy, but it doesn’t compare to the Wrathgate cutscene for example. I want a trailer that I’m going to want to watch over and over again. I still watch the Wrathgate video (and Summergale and Cranius’ Ulduar video) all the time.
The fight between the human and orc should have been shorter, but we should have seen more of an epic battle between the Horde and Alliance that was hinted at the beginning. I also think there should have been more focus on the wonder of Pandaria. The trailer makes it seem like it might simply be about one orc and one human who are fighting and then notice a pretty city. This expansion isn’t simply about a small fight between the Horde and Alliance; It’s about the escalating war between the factions reaching its peak, and we should see that. I want to see the Horde war machine in full gear, and the Alliance finally showing that they’ve had it. It’s about a place hidden for thousands of years, and the wonder of rediscovering it.
