If you mean 'in general,' then.. eh, not much more than any other game trailer.

If you mean the 'watch space combat on your bridge viewscreen,' then yes: 'bullshot,' as they say in the industry. How MUCH that is misleading is debatable. Speaking for myself, if a person sees Bridge Commander style combat in the trailer, jumps into the game, and is disappointed and leaves, there's a bunch more stuff they were going to be disappointed by and leave over.

The only reason the Borg are still around is that Toshiro Mifune is still deciding which cut to use to remove the implants. From all of them. At once. Chuck Norris? Who's he?

I'm annoyed that I don't get to be the captain of the Enterprise like at the end of the trailer

I mean I'm way more qualified for the job than Val'Shon.

Ummm the TOR ones stated that none of what was shown resembled gameplay.... so TOR shouldn't be thrown in here as misleading haha.

Can you show me where it says this on the YouTube trailer? Most of SWTOR's advertising wasn't done on the SWTOR site.

I think that 'Deception' would have been a far more fitting title for the '2800' series given what was shown vs what it turned out to be.

Thing is those two are cinematic trailers of TOR backstory. If you know who those characters are and that they are older in TOR.

There's a difference in what is labeled cinematic trailer and gameplay trailer.

Now I haven't watch the one here yet to know how it was labeled. But if presented as a gameplay trailer then it needs to be that -- gameplay.

Yeah it is very misleading in my opinion.

When I first saw it, I was like "What is this game? Can I play this game!?

Very Misleading!

You practically can't do 90% of the stuff they show on it.

Amazing what they can do with cut scenes! lol

Well it is kinda misleading.... Most of the other games people have mentioned have pure cinematic video's..... STO's F2P Trailer looks like its actualy in game footage.

I think most of it is from the new character intro video before you fight the borg at vega. Others come from what seems 2800 footage or something. It is hard to tell. but most of it is made up.
