Man, that old cinematic still has that Warcraft 3 charm, but it looks so out of date compared to what we have now.
They .... They managed to make it less epic than the old one. I love Blizzard but ... This week is not a good week for cinematics.
Illidan's moves were a lot more badass in the original cinematic, and Arthas seemed to get in one very well-timed swing that decided the outcome. The Reforged one has a slower pace, and Illidan seems to have a lot more hubris. They lock blades more than swing them. LOOKS metal af, though!
woah... illidan transforming into demon form :)
The major failing of the original was failing to show that Illidan was still alive.The new one makes the exact same mistake, they just added more fighting.
is it just me or the whole cinematic felt like 30 fps or less
Gonna be honest, this felt like a fan made video...Its so stiff, like action figures.
That animation was just... not good. Almost none of the movement felt like it had any life to it, and the contact between the two seemed even more disconnected and unrealistic. They looked more like toys being moved at inconsistent pacing half the time.
Was this cinematic made by the interns? Wow. It's.. not great. The intro cinematic redone is fantastic, what's with the laziness on this one?
The new version is more China friendly.
Thanks for lesser amount of anime special effects, but yeah. The new one is a bit too long and underwhelming.
While the new models are awesome, the cinematic itself is pretty bad. Good thing is that they made the fight a bit longer, but the movement is stiff, they are like robots. Every swing is so slow and feels like they barely hold the weapons. And too much dramatic pausing.
