Is it me, or is there something not quite right about the facial animations and lip syncing in the new MKX trailer?

The faces seem stiff and expressionless, and the movements of the mouths in relation to what the characters are saying are unconvincing.

I’m not hating, I’m a huge Mortal Kombat fan and I’m as excited as all get out about the new game, but it just seems a bit last generation-y to me.

Is this the best the new consoles can offer at this stage? Surely not, but I’m pretty sure I saw comparable work in gamed like Uncharted 3 and GTA5 on older machines.

I get it’s only a trailer and there’s time to tweak things, but gross NetherRealm. Fix it please.

Also, here’s the fanboy alternative to the fourth sentence in this post:

“Is this the best the new consoles can offer at this stage? Surely not, but I’m pretty sure I saw comparable work in Dead Space Extraction on Wii six years ago.”
