Gears Of War was a break out hit. Even with it's revolutionary graphics and engine, ground breaking co-op play, and addictive multi player game play, it was not perfect. 6 things need to be changed to take GOW 2 to the next level.
was too linear. felt like a shoebox
Loved this game. I agree it could use a longer campaign but the advantage to having a short but sweet one like they had is it allowed me to play it on all difficulty levels rather quickly and I wouldn't balk about walking a friend through it on co-op because I know it wont take forever. Still a few more hours would have been nice.
As for the rest of what they want changed, I had to take a second look when I saw they had active reload on there, but then I noticed they were talking multiplayer and I dont really care if they change it there. I just want them to make sure they keep it in single player. I felt active reload added a lot to the game and wish other games utilized it or a similar non intrusive minigame during reloads. It doesnt have to be hard and it doesnt have to power up the gun but there was just something I found interesting about having to pay attention to reload or else I could jam my gun at a bad time (like being rushed).
I kinda disagree with number 3. I have always been able to stop a person from curbstomping my teammate by a bullet *sniper* to the head. And of course you can't stop a chainsaw... once it started, your friend is pretty much dead if he starts at the shoulder or chest. And you don't have to wait till he is done chainsawing... once you run up to him, you automatically start chainsawing the guy even if he is already chainsawing... but the animation for the guy he's chainsawing goes much quicker.
Longer, less linear campaign Better story Better online play: Too often, Gears online would turn into trench warfare and stalemates. Jump button, please BRUMAK BATTLE!
1) Fix the damn multiplayer server setup!
2) Give more options to the multiplayer so we can choose starting weapons, weapons on map, etc.
3) Add video replay.
4) ALLOW US TO PLAY WITH OUR FRIENDS IN RANKED GAMES
5) Fix the ranking system
6) Don't be afraid to copy what Halo 3 does well (Ranking system, video replay, matchmaking, etc)
Better yet allow us to play with firends and make rank games the only option like it once was whan xbox-live launched years ago. Ranked friend omitted games came in when people started joining friends and abusing it. There are some multiplayer games without ranked games. Just online gaming period. Frontlines fuel of war is one of them and you get to game with your friends.
I hope they make it possible to play using Southpaw/legacy without it being completely borked. Just copy the full controller mapping that UT3 has and add in an option to turn on a targeting reticle. Oh and dedicated servers and a proper sever selection screen like Resistance, UT3.
the game had brilliant grahpics but unless you turned the brightness to vibrant you couldnt see half of it!
Uhhhhhh, I believe u want the BRIGHTNESS setting on your TV.
RROD and Disc scratched but everything else is fine
