See the first Gears of War 2 direct-feed screenshot alongside a model and an artwork.
I'm impressed, really I am. But are they much better than UT3? Although the character model is very good. I guess I invited the hate :(
It looks great but not as mind blowing as gears 1 was
the first two pics look more like artwork, you can see it slightly fuzzy like a painting
Agreed. It looks like artwork. Its impressive but not jaw-dropping like the first. It will be good though.
only the 1st one is in-game, 2nd is artwork. it says that on the pic with big yellow letters. i think 3rd is an in-game model though
I'm not really interested in this game at all but DAYAMN the facial modeling is amazing!
the most important months of the year: April-GTA4 June-MGS4 Sept(?)-KillZone 2 November-Resistance 2,Gears of War 2 God,how I love being a gamer
I'll take Banjo3, Killzone2, Fable2 and Project Offset instead.
I don't know what to say. The first 3 screens don't look like I would expect Gears of War 2 to look like. However, the scans of the Game Informer article look as if they are extremely good, but I can't tell for sure due to the blurriness of the pictures.
Is that in game graphics where they showed the guy smoking?If it is then it is way better than Gears1.
Actually thats a character model, it will be rendered in the game. It will look almost the same in the game;)
...look more like concept artwork, than in-game screens.
Yea, it seems like concept art to me. And regardless its WAY too early to get any real idea on what gow2 will actually look like. I'll wait for some gameplay vids or at the very least an in game screenshot before I even begin to form an opinion.
No... if it's a good game, now seems to be way too late to gte any info. Seems to me it's gonna be a rush job.
I'm confused. If it's the first pic which it probably is then it is'nt anything special. funny but it reminds me of burnout paradise's hills and stuff.
I love the UT engine and it's grittyness look... Can't wait. Too bad looks like a good read...
Looks to be a significant improvement over the first one in graphics. This game will easily be the best multiplayer game of 2008 and contender for GOTY.
dont be calling it yet it has some great competition this year gta4, resistance 2, call of duty 5(even though its not gona come close to cod4) ect.
doubt so, GTAIV is been said to have a fabulous multiplayer and there will be many great titles this year.
Gears 1 was great when there was 0 competition. But going against a title like GTAIV, Gears 2 is going to have to do something bigger than 5 vs 5 to win any multiplayer awards.
At least you got contender for GOTY part accurate. I think this will for sure be up there with MGS4 and GTA4 for GOTY. Best multi though ... come on man. You don't actually believe that crap do ya? BTW ... look fantastic.
If it was possible imagine we live in a world where Xbox 360 is the only console out there. Oh wait...
How can this be "best multiplayer of the year" when the first Gears had some of the worst multiplayer ever? Resistance 2 will be chaotic and intense, due to 60 players online and 8 player co-op. Gears 2 um.. 5 vs 5 multiplayer? LOL!
Well the first Resistance had 40 players online and the first Gears only had 8 players and Gears still CRUSHED resistance.
FirstKnight, you're incredible bias makes your points uncredible. "[Gears 2] easily be the best multiplayer game of 2008". Multiplayer was never a standout feature of the Gears series. I mean get real 5v5? EPIC. Of all the games out there with potentially brilliant multiplayer features, (even GTA IV which is on xbox 360) you chose the Xbox 360 Exclusive. If you're gonna do that, why not mention a better xbox 360 game known for its great multiplayer? Cos there are none this year, only Gears 2. Easily the best multiplayer, get real. Don't you get a hint when NOBODY talks about Gears 2's multiplayer, but when that article about Resistance 2 featuring 60 player online and 8 player co-op went up, everyone went wild and the article hit over 1000 degrees. Insomniac are brilliant developers. Saying stuff like, "Gears 1 crushed Resistance 1 in multiplayer" just shows how far your cranium is up Microsoft's crap tunnel
What's wrong with so many commenters on N4G? Anyone who says that multiplayer was not a major feature of Gears 1 has obviously never played Gears 1. Seriously, the single player campaign in Gears was not very long, that was one of its weaknesses. But it's so fun to play co-op even with people you don't know, and Versus is just amazing and unique. I admit it's hard to get into; at first I didn't like Versus because it is different from most FPS games and so I wasn't any good. But when you get into it, it is a one-of-kind experience, regardless of what people say. I have been playing shooters since the original Doom, and Gears is not the same as any of them. Multiplayer may not be for everyone, but it is a HUGE part of Gears series, and Epic knows that, so I am expecting something big in Gears 2. As for as GTAIV, I'm convinced that the single player game will be amazing, but I'm not so sure that the multiplayer will be great just because there's a lot of game modes. For a franchise that has been centered on single player, I think it'll be hard for the game to be the best multiplayer game of the year. But I'm sure it will be competition, since it is Rockstar, after all.
I am just hoping they show the true graphical leap from Gears 1 that they are all talking about.
Looks good can't complain, I rather see some In-game footage to determine graphics though.
What a great game. I also heard it's more plotline this time, like you gotta find someones wife and human things like that. Sometimes It's a pitty there has to be console wars. Every great game should be on 1 console. So everyone can play it. But the problem is, I want that 1 console to be PS3. Others want it to be XBOX 360. That's why we can never agree.
Ok ............I was not wild about GTA 8 Months ago either .......Now I am out of my mind.
This game is looking really good but i did not expect anything less from GeOW2. This is going to be amazing, hopefully the game a bit longer this time around.
contender for GOTY yes. But there is also GTA4(which in my opinion is way better because of the gameplay), LBP, fallout 3, and MGS4. Best multiplayer I don't think so because i think some multiplayer focused game will appear out of somewhere.
and were all suppose to agree because something is gonna magically appear out of thin air...I THINK Spike47 " Best multiplayer I don't think so because i think some multiplayer focused game will appear out of somewhere." I'm not disagreeing but you could do better than that...
That model looked good.
The model looks great, but the environments have already been passed by Uncharted TBH. I like the lighting, but it just doesn't draw you in like I had hoped... :/
LOL.... comparing a potential AAA title and already been GOTY honors to rubbish...
Yeah, rubbish that managed to score 4% below Gears without having multiplayer. 90 out of 100 metacritic? I'll take rubbish over overhyped stuff anyday.
better than any that has been shown on the ps3 for 2008 this game is loooking astonishing it looks so defferent from egars 1 ppl actually have reall looking skin and the game models are astonihsing .
It's certainly a lot better than your grammar.
If by 'reall' you mean real. And if by real you mean, real plastic. And... by my mathematics, I see....1.. 2.... 3 colours there!!! WOW. Good job Epic, more than black and white, but they introduced that, elusive colour brown. Great job. On our feet people, I think it's time to pay our respects. Cusses aside, it doesn't look bad. But it looks shockingly like Gears 1. That's all I can say. The olcatios are differen,t but the upgrade in graphics is minimal, lets hope they do somethign with the gameplay. Not that it was bad gameplay last time, just that, I don't want Gears of War: The continued story.
damn you may have dumbed me down a few notches for reading your post.
Good thing i got my ps3 because the graphics on it are way better than 360
LOL ABOVE :) @ FISHY FINGER
Lots of Ps3 fanboys in the thread doing their best to downplay the screenshots. That means it looks really really good =) The first pic is in-game, and it looks insane.
I'm not one of those fools but......I didn't like the first one, so you can imagine those pics = not very impressed.
I'm glad that they look good. But I am not stunned. Until there is gameplay, I'm not to impressed. Hope its fun for Xbox people, I could care less.
but they care enought to tell you they dont care.
If that picture was in game then GEOW 2 will be based on some paintbrush stroked world right?
as a primarily PC gamer i can honestly say without a doubt that those screens look worse than the PC version of UT3. I, am not impressed(and honestly, what can you expect from a low/mid gaming PC, the 360). However, if people like the game, then get the second. That's the beauty of games, they're supposed to be fun. So if you have fun playing it, if YOU have fun, then get it. since when did everything become just about graphics? 360 fanboys need to stop trying to convince PS3 fanboys that the 360 is superior, because it isn't. "Better" in games is whats "more enjoyable" for you. So, I like the PC and PS3, because, i think they're better. They have better games for ME. ugh, im sick of these threads of ignorance. Sorry, I just cant stop rambling, but im just tired of the fools...the blind fools.
First 2 looks like artwork and character model looks great but need to see them in-game. We know how Unreal Engine has some problems rendering too much details.
Yes, maybe on the POS3 but it doesn't have any of the glaring issues on the 360. Since you are PS3 I guess you are basing this completely off your experience with UE3 on your system. These screenshots just show the tip of the iceberg of whats to come.
first 2 pics are artwork, 3rd pic is modeling on a computer. model looks nice, but just like gears 1, its not going to look like that in game. theyre just trying to create artificial hype again.
"See the first Gears of War 2 direct-feed screenshot alongside a model and an artwork." (1)direct-feed screenshot alongside (3)a model and (2)an artwork.
Epic produces the best bullshots of any company out there, and the Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3 screenshots they published looked almost NOTHING like the actual games. I have more faith in them this time around since they're finally familiar with the hardware, but...
first is a screenshot, second is an artwork. Shows how good the graphics are that people are getting confused.
Jup, just like with the resistance 2 teaser.
resistance teaser was neither screenshot nor artwork? so why say "just like resistance teaser"? that's a pretty stupid comment.
beavis, what he is referring to is that people are claiming the resistance 2 trailer isn't "in-game" but there's a good possibility that it really is in-game. And the fact that people cant tell if it's a CGI video or in-game. I seriously wonder why anyone will doubt that it's in-game or not, it looks just like Ratchet & Clank Future with better textures, which the developers said themselves that they were focused on making the textures better than the previous game.
The first two are concept art, the third ingame screenshot. Kind of think of it all these pics are not game at all, the first two are concept art and the third is a PC Charactor model. lol
its a 3d model made on a pc.
Well all games are made on PC but I agree I was just editing my post when I realized you replied. Its nothing more than a PC render of a charator. this game has months left just wait untill you see all the HDR lighting and new visual effects etc.
I think you made a cult.
The first pic looks like in game...looks just like Avalanche in UT3, only with wooden cabins insteadof stone temple things...I am only saying that UE3 is definitely capable of whatever that first pic is... the second pic is very obviously artwork...and the third, not sure...it doesn't look overly detailed to be ingame...but it looks very different compared to Gears/UT3 character models...
lol, Power of Green actually made some good points without acting like a douche.
I don't have to defend the excellent graphics PS3 has already surpassed 360 with, please don't mention 2008 and beyond. This is just some Last Remnant looking artwork hopefully. I hope you all can see this is just artwork with no polygons. I hope poos3 gets off that shroom. :)
hey child there is only 1 concept art in thos epics the 2nd 1 u sony trolls knwo this the 1st pic is the gameplay pic ofthe concept art as its the swiss alps lvl that was talked about in the mag so yeas gears of war+ ue3 have reached a next lvl of detail and sharpness thr textures in the 1st pic and detail and crispy ness to the pic looks amazing look at the lighting on the roof i dont think paint does hdr
I know Gears 2 will look better than these art shots. I just wished you would think that instead of comparing these bland screens as anything PS3 should even be worried about. But buddy, please find a PS3 this year to play on. Go to a friends house, kiosk, wherever. PS3 graphics were insane last year, and they damn sure are not playing around this year. It's like you haven't even seen PS3 period. I have seen it ALL, I don't just post crap. I will take back my shroom comment. I apologize bro. lol
HAHA its so funny. POOS3 is a little kid. SERSIOULY BE PREPARED. This game will be awesome... I WILL AHVE IT ON DAY ONE GUAUANTEED. But if you think this game will be wither the best looking/best game of 2008... You will be proven wrong lol. This picture disn't even look like anything either. Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 aren't a launch title or PS2 game this time. MGS 4. GRAN TURISMO 5 PROLGUE. Gears 2 when its reviewed will be "amazing" kick ass" "far exceeding the first" IT WILL NOT BE a Gametrailers said about Uncharted in thier review....go look and listen...they said Uncharted was "EASILY THE BEST LOOKING GAME ON THE CONSOLE MARKET." You are living ina dream world. PS3 has the potential for better graphics than Xbox 360... Sony has guaranteed you will start seeing this year and do you remerber what the Per-Alpha version of Killzone 2 looked like? It's gonna get nasty this year. Gears 2 will not be number 1. You Extreme Xbots are sersiously going to get disappointed.
Bar hasn't been risen yet apparently.
