It's easy to let nostalgia distort what the games we played almost a decade ago looked like. The most recent example of a possible victim of this tendency would be The Coalition's upcoming Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.
The game is way too clean. And the textures in the old one looks dirty and muddy and in the new one looks very bright and clean. I really appreciate that they upped the graphics and improved things in the Remake but the old atmosphere is gone. They are making the same mistake of Gears 3. Oh well, at least Gears 4 looks fricking awesome.
Pretty substantial difference. However in Gears 1 his suit still looks impressive. At times on when I was looking at the comparison I almost could not tell which vesions was which. Because his suit actually looks better at times in Gears 1 because it was more shinier. Anyway we don't need a Gears remaster or Gears 4. A new IP would have been more welcomed.
"Anyway we don't need a Gears remaster or Gears 4." We don't need a Gears 4? Who is this "we", because a lot of "we" I know are really looking forward to Gears 4. "A new IP would have been more welcomed" Recor, Sea of Thieves and Ion?
We? Like you actually own an Xbox?! Your in every freaking article talking crap
As far as I can see, many people were excited for a gears 4 and the remaster. Also...we did get new ips..unless you didn't care enough to know that.
Wow, Gear 1 looking great so far Remastered. Man cant wait, hopefully they use the Mad World song again for PR.
Playing it looks great. It runs so smooth and no lobby lag. No more god host or crazy glitches for people to exploit. Most fun I've had in multiplayer all Gen. Already put 10 hours in and will most likely put around 30 before it ends.
It's still a mad, mad world!!!! I remember when I first saw images of this game in gamepro/electronic gaming monthly magazines, and holding on to those mags until the first trailer (which is still locked in my old 360) launched. I watched that trailer everyday until the game finally came out! Gears of war is the shooter that gave the genre a face(it's marcus fenix), and for me there is none better.... I am all over this remaster, and absolutely can't wait for gears 4!!!
Dude, I share the same feelings as you :)
Some of the new textures look great, but why are they changing the dark tone / mood of the stages completely? Some of those pics turn dark and creepy alleys into shiny streets that are just missing the rainbows and unicorns.
Really wish they wouldn't refer to it as the Ultimate Edition. It's misleading and seems like it includes all 3 (or 4 with Judgement) games. It should simply be Gears of War: Remastered.
MS knows how to remaster. This and Halo 2. Not just upscaled with a better framerate. Fully rebuilt.
Damn, Gears 1 aged very well. I'm gonna go as far as to say it looks better than black ops 3.
Gears 1 does still look good. I still remember my first game, I joined as locust and watched a guy just looking at his character spinning the camera around, back n forth, saying, "You just can't mess with this, wow, you just can't mess with this."
Gears of War sure looks very fine. It was already ahead of the pack in 2006 and it really does look like a 2015 game now.
Bro's this game looks so sweet its "almost" like live action Gears. I'm really impressed with it.
