No company sends out a project this important without oversight or DIRECTION. Nor is there any reason to believe they didn't know the qualifications of this studio or saw examples of their work. No way in hell a developer didn't know what their outsource was doing or for that matter the idea the outsource wasn't being overseen and meeting deadlines.
There is only one explanation about the movie with the developer of the boss battles. He made that movie becasue he thought it was going to be on the MAKING OF video, not being thrown to the wolves to cover eidos' ass from incompetence. It's why we all cringe when we watch it and he is happily nervous. He thinks he is making fps console game boss battles.
Now where would he get that idea?
I'm beginning to wonder if Eidos Montreal actually did any of the work on this console game.
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.
