Battle of the Launch Trailers

In the span of only a few days, FPS fans around the world were treated to four different launch trailers and cinematics of this year’s biggest line-up of shooters from Call of Duty and Battlefield to Medal of Honor and Halo.

Yep, it’s that time of year again when gamers with limited wallet sizes are spending their days and nights contemplating the tough decision they’ll be making ahead, or are simply dropping their entire life’s saving to pick up each and every shooter releasing in the coming months. To make things easier for the indecisive ones, developers are at least merciful enough to supply us with a more revealing look into their product in the form of a launch trailer, closer to release.

Too bad that these four killer trailers below are all mind-blowing.

So, we ask the question, since there can be only one: Which of these four launch trailers of your favorite, upcoming FPS games is truly the greatest?

Turn off the lights and turn up the volume as you take in the sights and sounds of today’s top first-person shooters.
