I know some trailers deceive a little bit in order to not give away spoilers but that's not what happened with the trailer for Shadow. They full on pretended it was something it wasn't.

And even thought there were bits of the story that I liked a lot in Shadow, I actually think they were pretty deceptive in their advertising and they should have written the story that was alluded to in the trailer.
This whole post is the TEA.

I'm completely assuming, but I think maybe another company (similar to how a different company created the visuals for the Turning Point trailer) created the CGI trailer based off a synopsis that was given to them? That's the only thing I can think of as to why it's so drastically different to the final product even though it was so late in the development state. I would think they'd be more hands on to stop stuff like this from happening, but considering they retcon stuff every game and with how sloppy Shadow is in general, it wouldn't surprise me if they handed it off to a 3rd party company and just said "HERE MAKE THIS!"

Still, I will admit it bums me out. The trailer story seems to have the same "Oh no, Lara f***ed up big time!" plot device, but in a way that seems to be a lot more about her, rather than Trinity.
The only thing about OverStrike/Fuse is that it was changed due to the developers focus testing the game to death and changing everything to appeal to a demographic of young boys.

With shadows trailer I honestly feel like it just boils down to a different team/company being handed a short synopsis of the story and what they wanted from the trailer, and then the company created the CGI trailer off that.
