Scandinavian site Gamereactor talks to Cliffy B about the improvements made to Gears of War 2, what new enemies you get to meet and what's new in the game.
but I see minor imrovments more than that 2 in front of the title it's like gears of war:reloaded cliffy,just look at call of duty 4 If you want to make a true sequel
I disagree with this. Gears of War 2 is set to be epic, remember that the build we seen isn't going to represent the final build of this game. The gameplay looks good and there are enough features and MP modes to merit a "true sequel" Tell what COD4 did that makes it such a "true sequel"? It's still a run and gun FPS, same core mechanics of gameplay. Except it went modern and has a lvling system, by this do you mean "true sequel"? EDIT: WHy do they always post that stupid looking picture of CB?! He looks like he has down syndrome in that pic. Edit: @ below. Are you kidding? Over a abbreviation?! So what if some calls it GOW2?! Wow.
gameplay doesnt need to be improved in my opinion but.. make it so it doesn't look like an overgrown hunchback troll running around, make the people look more realistic
We'll call it what we want. And we'll continue calling it GoW2 over and over again even if ya like it or not! But GoW2 is looking freakin AWESOME! I'm loving everything about it so far. And contrary to the guy above, I like the character design with the huge guys. Gives the game character. I mean, put any of those characters in a picture by themselves and most gamers will automatically know there from GoW.
there will be improvements because it's going to "Bigger, Better and more Badass!" hehe...I found that 3B too hillarious!! I can't stop laughing! @highway, have you ever met someone with down syndrome? they are suppose to look DOWN, not erecting with gun like a RETARDED KID!
Try this. Type GOW into google and then click I'm feeling lucky. Now STFU
ape007, well i don`t own a 360, but i certainly would like one for GOW2. Highwayman, sorry for the pic. I thought it was kind of funny, but`ll use another one next time (maybe) ;)
Its too bad COD4 takes no skill.
^^ I always love people saying that... let me guess...you totally sucked at it?...I hear that 'this game is so easy, you guys should try a real shooter' in the room before the game launches...why does the guy saying that always end up like 4 and 20?...and for some reason, they also always have a P90 and DE, with juggernaut, extra penetration, and bandoliers as perks?
Badz149: have you ever met someone with down syndrome? they are suppose to look DOWN, not erecting with gun like a RETARDED KID! I hope this was a stab at humor. The real question is have you seen what a person with down syndrome looks like? They aren't supposed to "look down"...Clearly you've no idea what you're talking about.
i know it looks similar to the first one but if they added new MP modes, a whole new longer campaign, crawling, bullet shields, cover system improvements, new weapons, new characters, slightly better graphics, increases 4v4 to 5v5, new maps,new enemies, horde mode and all the rest; i'd pay £35 for that addon. They may as well put it on another disc and sell it as a full game to save downloading it.
atleast it does not take microsfot 5 years to make the best looking /playing action shooter on any console which to no doubt gears of war 2 will be.
Improvements? What improvements?
ive listed some of them in the gamerzone, there are many, many improvements.
... the first GeOW game so its obvious I will prolly like GeOW2... I just wanted a sweet innovative feature for GeOW2 to really freshen up the experience... I dont think I will find this game as good since the cover system wont be new or the visuals...
Horde might be that feature. Its gonna be so addictive and i cant think of any other game with a mode like it.
Its basically a slightly different approach to terrorist hunt from Rainbow 6
Unreal Tournament Invasion mod. Or even Heavy Weapon on the 360 xbla.
I stand corrected, i forgot about invasion on UT. Rainbow6 terrorist hunt doesnt count because nothing respawns and gets harder. there are no levels on each map, just one level
Gow 2 is going to be so great. :)
I saw the demonstration during E3 and what I can tell is, it's going to be like Rb6V to Rb6V2. you know what I mean?
Not rly... but if you mean that GoW2 should be called GoW1,5 your dead on. It feels nothing like a sequal in my eyes. The thing they could do that wasn't able in the first is massive maps with the ability to freely move across them. They could also add 4 player co-op and more weapons than the flamethrower. But as money comes first and commonsense comes after that I won't keep my hopes up.
its tough to get out of that area with any same generation sequel...Epic made it very clear how hard they were pushing the 360 with gears 1, which clearly shows, being that only UT3 looks better (guess who made that game...)... it does still look impressive to me though...that view out the window with the brumack down in the valley, and all the huge plumes of smoke coming up...Epic really knows how to squeeze UE3 obviously...but everything else is just a change in art direction, not tech... what many want to know is...where is the stuff from the Tech Demo?...we have seen the lots of identical enemies on screen thing in a few gameplay spots (although some claim they can not be interacted with)...but where is the soft body physics?...where is the uncharted like water physics and reflections (the ugliest part of UT3 by far...the water sucked)...some little stuff has been shown with destructability...but even that doesn't appear to be nearly to the degree of the tech demo... the game still looks awesome...I have always loved the gore, but not so much the ridiculous size of the characters...I can definitely understand the 'expansion pack' feeling the game gives off at times though...RSV2 gave off the exact same impression for the most part...
It uses the same exact Unreal engine 3 as UTIII on PS3. So how does it look different than 1. The Unreal Engine 3 is played out on all systems. http://i289.photobucket.com...
If they made it lok the same as Gears1 i'd still buy it. But they havent. There are slight improvements (more detail, more colour, longer draw distances and vistas). Gears is one of the best looking games on the 360 but its the gameplay that makes it good and so replayable and fun. Gameplay > graphics - always.
I don't understand how anyone can say it doesn't seem like a "true" sequel. I mean it has tons of improvements, added weapons and enemies, new "abilities" if you like (what with the shield and new finishers) and a completely new story with new characters. What more can you really want from a sequel? To be honest, I hate comparing to prove a point, but it's the only way here. God of War 3: It's gonna be a new story with some added combos and bosses. CoD4: Was a new time era with different weapons and new multiplayer system. Gran Turismo 5: New cars, better graphics. If people are saying Gears of War 2 isn't a true sequel then I don't know what is, really. We've only seen a small amount of footage, too. And I'm sure that (and it's the same with any game) they haven't announced every single little detail about the game. I'm not exactly a Gears fan or anything, sure I like the game and I'll be picking it up, but I'm not like "OMG! GoW ROCKS!!!", I just don't understand how it's not considered a sequel. Meh.
sounds good, but i still want to see more of the new unreal engine stuff in. so far all i have seen are hords, but you always engage them from a distance with them running round like mindless canon foder. i want to see more distructable in the environments etc. great they showed us all this new stuff they had added to it, but make it a part of the actual game. lets see it working to its fullist !
But the sequel really doesnt look like its pushing more than the first one. I know that there are improvments to the game, but that doesnt give me enough reason to want to buy this game anytime this year. They could have just patched up the old game put some new DLC and saved some money IMHO. It just doesnt seem that they are pushing the envelope, and to me, thats a sign of being too arrogant with your own work. Just look at games like Resistance 2. I played the first one and didnt like it one bit, but they totally changed their formula, and added not one extrap player, but they now have the total of the biggest fps online in the industry, 60 freaking players! Gears just added one more for a total of 5. Give me a break,,, like I said,, they could have saved millions in development money and just patched up the old game,, and actually take the time out to either make a true Gears of War 2 or make a totally different IP cause honestly, I dont see Gears doing more than what it already is.
Obviously they changed the formula cause the game wasn't that good. Why would they change the formula to Gears if the Game ROCKED and was loved by millions. Think a little sometimes!
apart from the new horde mode moveable cover, flame thrower, new grenades and other weapons new game encounters like the reavers etc new gameplay mechanics like clashing, body shields the new story better graphics yep, it's just like gears 1... *rolls eyes*
ahead of all consoles
" JoKeR - Its too bad COD4 takes no skill. " So True! Microsoft have next-gen on lockdown. I laugh in the face of someone who thinks different. Gears Of War 2 is going to be EPIC!
Hope they fixed the blatant crashes...
I'm pretty sure I saw Cliff B downtown sipping Martini's with some slick lookin' fellas...Anyone else wonder...if........nah
I think with all the improvements - shields,character shields,improved timing this game is gonna be a 5/5.
