Multiplayer video of Gears of War.Brand New Gears of War Multiplayer Footage (X06) - video powered by Metacafe
Yes, I know it's multiplayer, but intelligent enemies makes the game feel significantly more exciting. Still no environmental damage, but the blood and gore makes MK look weak by comparison.
First off it's funny to see DJ you're always one of the first on Gears articles/video's posted. It seems like you, just as some other Sony fanboys, are scared about the greatness of Gears.
Then your comments, let's break them down one for one.
Intelligent enemies. The single player demo's and video's you saw were dev's walkthroughs. They set the intelligence on a low level to be able to go to a level fast. For testing and to keep a demo going, not being slaughtered by Locust while needing to show a level.
Then, the environmental damage. Who is saying everything needs to be destroyed like you get with Resistance? I had it in Black on the original XBOX. While fun at first: look what I can shoot down around me, got boring and giving too much going on on the screen in the end.
If those are the strongest points you can mention, it's a pretty weak statement overall.
Now enjoy the video's and just say it with me: Gears of War will be the killer app to have this Christmas and well into next year!
actually MART, DJ has improved lately. He still gives false evidence to back up the less intelligent people's Fanboy claims on the 360, but he makes an effort to look at positive things on both sides.
Those little jibes he makes like the one about environmental damage still bother me though.
That looks gooD! Hopefully you will be able to customize your creature/character.
Well they're scared.

It's what cornered animals do all the time: lash out any way they can. yep!
This game looks awesome~~~ i can't believe how intense the gameplay looks. Great find mart.
To those who say that the environment is not destructible... remember that they are firing bullets into concrete and metal... all you get are little holes (in real life) its not until you carpet bomb or use larger explosive rounds that things start to get destroyed and so far besides from small handgrenades nothing has been shown to be that big...
The point of the game is close quarters combat and shooting down buildings with pistols doesn't accomplish this.
It will be sweet if you can also betray your teamates. I love playing with friends and then turning on them when they need me most. I would also like to customize my character.
hey I'd like environmental damage like in black thats always a cool feature but they went for more graphical interpretations on characters and environments so thats cool too
Imaging when its high quality video, but there is 1 thing i of to say i fcuking can,t wait to play this game.
This is the best looking (graphics wise) demo I have seen of gears of war so far. GOW is without a doubt the best looking game to date.
Man... I can't WAIT for this game.
that settles the doubts I had about multiplayer being too simplistic. But that guy really couldn't shoot!
As for environmental damage, the game being better than resistance doesn't mean it has to have all the same features as resistance. Besides, the concrete i've seen get shoot does respond with dust clouds and chip offs, it doesn't really show if that damage was permanent. And there are destructible objects, like destructible cover, cover that can get shot to pieces so you have to move fast.
I was afraid this game was going to be like some of the first demos they had online, where the character was just popping up and firing, over and over. But it looks like this is actually going to be exciting considering the amount of cover and space to move between. Good times.
