IGN: Gears of War 2 Preview & Video Interview

When IGN first saw Gears of War 2 in motion they were skeptical. The gameplay didn't immediately grab hold as being a huge step forward from the first. It looked a bit better, there was more going on around the core action, but it just wasn't the earth-shattering moment IGN was hoping for after being such a fan of the first. Gears 2 seemed like it was trying desperately to live up to the now classic "bigger, better and more badass" marketing line that now gets thrown around as fodder in the IGN offices, but was having trouble doing so.

After witnessing a brief level IGN had their doubts about the abilities of Epic's latest to be the holiday gem that everyone wants it to be.

But having now played the second installment in the mega-hit (Gears of War 1 has sold over 4.7 million copies) series for a full day, IGN can say without hesitation that Gears 2 is on its way to living up to everyone's expectations.

Gears of War 2 looks extremely unoriginal and improves on nothing from the first title. You can clearly tell that Epic Games have been struggling to make a passable game with Xbox 360 hardware. This game will be a prime example of how limited Xbox 360 is in hindering developers.

.....and here you are yet again commented on Gears of War 2 when you have no interest at all in the game and you seem to just completely hate it. I ask you one simple question then, WHY THE F#CK ARE YOU IN A 360 THREAD REGARDING GEARS OF WAR 2?

...From the Graphics, Multiplayer, Weapons, and even down to the Single Player this game looks completely revamped, and AAA material

-damm Cliffy is everywhere, looks like alot of sites want to talk with him about Gears2, ha ha IGN always has the best stuff. I guess it just shows how when you make a game that so many people enjoy everybody wants to know every detail....save some for release Cliffy, I can't wait. Yeah, 360degrees I think its safe to say looking at that vid and all the preview stuff on the net this game is a sure fire blockbuster.

I trust IGN's opinion. They are probably the most reputable gaimg website.

"IGN can say without hesitation that Gears 2 is on its way to living up to everyone's expectations."

It looks as if Gears two will top the original in almost every way. Especially the multiplayer aspect. Gears 2 and Fable 2 are going to be two great titles for the upcoming Holiday Season.
