Overall, I would say that this trailer has some exciting elements but was vastly overshadowed by the previous trailers. Both the reveal trailer and gameplay trailer were works of art. I literally squealed with excitement when I saw the first two. This trailer was average, which makes it more than a little bit disappointing. The problem isn't that the Minas Ithil trailer was bad - after all, who could be displeased while listening to de Plater. The problem is that Monolith has created two near-flawless demonstrations of why exactly fans should be scrambling to preorder this game, and they followed those up with the kind of short, simple, early-stage gameplay trailer most other companies produce regularly. This trailer was neat, and we all love new content, but it just couldn't live up to the hype generated by its predecessors. I feel comfortable saying, though, that Monolith will definitely be shaking out some more masterpieces in the coming months.
