Trailer Trash #3

Battlefield 1943 - Wake Island

Particles, particles, particles! The essential experience of playing Battlefield 1943 is particles flying everywhere. Even the telephone pole (at 1:07) shatters into oblivion when a tank runs into it. You know what else disintegrates on contact? Those obnoxious pull quotes that don’t actually say anything: “Incredible standout moments!” Wow. I bet this game also has items to equip that can be used. 

Battlestations: Pacific - Kamikaze mode

OK, one more while we’re on WWII. Somehow, the impact of Kamikaze is not as visceral in a videogame, when you know a respawn is what awaits you in the great beyond. 

InFamous - Empire City 

This trailer should be called: tryin’ to make a dollar out of 15 cents. Props to the team that put it together, they make the game look like a 10 all the way. If it actually reviews that well, we’ll eat our hat.

    ugh...Free Realms nearly made me vomit.

    Nice article, the trailers are all quite horrible. Personally i'm anticipating battlefield 1943 though, as its appearing on XBLA and PSN for only $15. The trailer is really cliche though, and does nothing to make me want to buy the game.

    Lets Tap- So good stars will shoot out your face!!! Seriously...No complicated controls? AHH OMG ITS GOT AN A AND B BUTTON!!! WHAT DO I DO?!

    that infamous trailer looked good cant wait till it comes out.
  • Baconator96 - May 1, 2009 5:29 a.m.

    im going to buy infamous, but i wonder how itll stand up to Prototype

    Gary Busey should record a commentary track for Saints Row, like tracks Valve games have. But no one should tell Gary Busey he's recording a game commentary. They could just plant a mic on him and record the random things he says as he goes about his day sorting his collection of shrunken heads, snorting coke off skeezy trannies, and burying his cellphone in the backyard to make the voices go away.

    Man, I can't wait for InFamous! I don't know how you guys can't be anything but completely psyched about InFamous! That trailer is just like all the other InFamous trailers, friggen Awesome! As for prototype, good luck to all of you who buy it, but sorry looks like complete junk to me, if you have a PS3 I think you should at least do yourselves the favor of getting InFamous, the game is 10 times what protocrap is....see what I did there kids? lol Anyways nice article, but I personally don't see InFamous fitting in to the trailer trash section myself.

    i play free realms.....i think its cool.
  • Jedipimp0712 - May 1, 2009 9:25 p.m.

    what the fuck is the point of the Kamikazi game? i dont know if its just me, but does that seem REALLY un-patriotic or what? and when you do run into an American boat, what the fuck is that accomplishing? also, that Infamous trailer does look amazing, is there something that games radar is holding out on us for what the gameplay is like? cuz i thought it looked bad ass
  • nadrewod999 - May 2, 2009 3:57 p.m.

    GamesRadar, I look forward to seeing how you review a game while eating your hat (hint: read end of last page of article).
  • noobmasteroftehworld - May 2, 2009 6:42 p.m.

    is the battle stations:pacific just about being a kamikaze pilot? if thats it then i am not sold
  • atomicred - May 3, 2009 5:35 a.m.

    Sherlock Holms vs Jack the Ripper side effects: schizophrenia.
  • Teh_Ty - May 3, 2009 3:06 p.m.

    InFamous looks kinda cool, but I'm looking forward to prototype more.

    the infamous one looked bad ass

    Speaking as somebody who owns a PS3, I think the inFamous trailer looks pretty bland. The combat looks really uninspired. Other trailers showcase the urban explorer aspect, which makes the game look much more appealing. Face it.. The combat isn't going to be inFamous' strong point.
  • MissingLink101 - May 1, 2009 2:02 a.m.

    They've really made an awesome trailer for infamous but if I'm gonna get the new version of the (last succesful incarnation) Crackdown idea, I'll be heading for Prototype.
  • iKOemos - May 1, 2009 4:12 a.m.

    Hey gmilf17, u gonna throw a spaz again? These trailers suck. These games are doomed to die.
  • Yossarian - May 1, 2009 6:11 p.m.

    Battlestations confuses me. Isn't the point of most games to stay ALIVE? Historical accuracy is good and all, but I don't see flying a kamikaze mission as a good selling point. I can kill myself in plenty of other, and most likely better, games.
