It's a great trailer and all, but I hoped for more info rather than just another teaser.

Still, I'm glad that the game will be fully voiced, but that also comes with a darker side. Be sure to expect BioWare's regulars to do some more shoddy voice acting.

Great trailer, but I think they used too much music in it. It didn't work very well. Still, amazing video.

I'm with you on the voice-acting, PastramiX. I hope they stop using their regulars and start hiring some new actors, for a well-needed refreshment.

If it looked like that, whether or not to get it wouldn't even cost a second's thought! Sad that it does not...

Going by that then, all of the Jedi robes look to be armour covered in a robe. At least it isn't white clone armour. That Sith looks very impressive though.

Very nice trailer, certainly. Again BioWare manages to horrify and appal with a comic and some artwork, then astound with videos.

spoiler:
Very novel way of getting into the Temple - who else wants to be able to do that in game?

The sith in the ship looked like Revan I thought. Great Trailer though.

Yeah - I thought that too. Something in the shape of the mask.

The main Sith Lord looked like a half-unhelmeted Vader.

The style really is very, very Clone Wars-y. Temple, Sith warships and TIE/ETA-2 fighters, Cruscant in general...but still, presented like this it doesn't look too bad. Even borders on acceptable.

It might end up being just different enough from the Clone Wars.

This cinematic is absolutely awesome. Almost on par with Blizzard's cinematics.
I don't agree with their choice of music though.. TSL's music doesn't fit here imo. Also, the Sith look rather boringly designed to me, especially the Sith Lord.

The Edge Magazine article I posted said we would see 20-30 mins of gameplay footage at E3. Let's just hope we do.

Awesome trailer.

Well, considering, LucasArts approved both games, I'm not surprised about that, per say. But, the John Williams piece from RotS was unexpected. It gave you the feeling that the Clone Wars was simply events repeating themselves.

The trailer looked really good, but i'd rather have a gameplay trailer instead of another cinematic.

I thought the voice acting in the KOTOR games wasn't too bad. It wasn't great, but it wasn't like Oblivion crappy voices. I would like some good voice acting, but that cost a ton of money to get good actors.

It was definitely Revan's mask, or a replica of some sorts.

I'm thinking his story will be expanded upon in this game. We'll find out what happened out there in the outer rim with him. Could he be the Sith Lord who comes back to attack? Or did they take his teachings and use them for themselves?

Did he fall when he went back out there? The trailer raises those questions. I think we see T3-M4 at some point too, them showing the T3 droid was no accident.

I'd like to know how Lord Angral could use Force Lightning with what appeared to be a droid hand. Maybe that was is lone living arm.

I think they probably just rendered that for the fans as an homage to the two greatest Sith Lords to ever live.

Well, with Anakin/ Vader being the son of the Force, or so Qui-Gon thinks, that would make him a good contestant for greatest Sith Lord ever, but Revan turned on the Sith and became a Jedi again, in the canonical version.

Oi, will Star Wars fans ever be satisfied?

I haven't been on the forums in months, but when I saw this on Gametrailers.com...I ******* in my pants and had to post.

Who cares about music taken from TSL or the Prequels?
Who cares about similarities with the Clone Wars?
Who gives a rat's ass about recycled voice actors?
Who cares about ships looking like Imperial ones?
Who cares if it's not a gameplay trailer?

You get a beautifully choregraphed battle and fight sequences, you get wonderful details and action that easily rivals what can be seen in the prequels. This is hands down the best Star Wars video game cinematic I've ever seen.

When I loaded the WoW Beta for the first time and saw the intro cinematic, I went "WOW! That was cool!"
When I loaded Warhammer 40 000 : Dawn of War for the first time, I saw the cinematic and went "Holy...! That was awesome!"

For many, this will be their first contact with the game. And what a great first contact it is!

Wow. That was damn good. I'm not usually a big fan of slow motion, but the parts they implemented it in were pretty sweet.

What I don't understand is why they feel the need to throw Clone Wars **** at us for the thousandth time when they could be making a TV series (with this kind of animation) set in the Old Republic era.

I thought it was an amazing Teaser, so much so I feel I must dedicate my Life to avenging that Brave Jedi Warrior.

My Only criticism is that it is not the game, an amazing feat of design and action, but not what we'll be playing... But we already know that, great cinematic A+

I felt quite the opposite - I wanted to play part of that Sith group attacking the Temple!

Y'know, if Lucas really has to make CGI features, they should look like that. And have the same sort of plot.

I was referring to the point that most of TSL seemed to have been ignored in the timeline and whatnot, despite any LucasApproval.

I was pretty stunned by this trailer.... I think it stole the show, so far. EA completely tore it up with their line up coming out. This game looks sweet. It kind of feels cool that you will be able to write your own unique story with your own character or characters... Cannot wait for this one.

Dang... If the clone wars had near this much attention and effort put into it, meybe a lot of the criticism's about art would never have happened. Darn pretty. I hope the game comes out near that level of pretty. VERY cool action sequences. Gotta say the T3 droid must have some significance. Seeing as how it seemed kinda thrown in there...

Did anyone notice that the lightsaber styles in the cinematic were the Nick Gillard taught the actors during the prequels? Does this not suggest direct interaction with Nick Gillard?

Oh, don't get me wrong. I thought the voice-actors in KotOR were good. But Sbarge and Hale (+others) are being used all over the place. It's time for something else.

Sure, but we know as a kid he was irritating. As a teen he was worse, and as an adult I wanted him to die. It's only when he became Darth Vader from Ep IV to VI that he was awesome.

Revan has been awesome since the day he was born.

And I think he could kick Darth Vader's ass in a fight. He has the ability for force Lightning, something Vader didn't have, and what he succumbed to.

Anyway, when is this game coming out?

It was a big epic cutscene that drowns in Bioware's apparent need for everything to be cooler than the movies but still recognizable as "iconic and Star Warsy", which means ripping off previously-existing designs for absolutely everything (a factor that it would have been no less than three times as cool had it been excised).

In any case, the next time a fanboy tells me how brilliant Revan was and how he always won in the end, I can point to this cutscene and say "nice job protecting us, Revan."

Did anyone download it and watch it in full 1280 by 720 HD resolution, yet with 5.1 Surround Sound? It's like a three and a half minute movie!

Yeah, good point I think, this gives us a hint that Revan was brutally killed when he sought out the Sith Empire before the beginning of TSL.
