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.
