An off-screen multiplayer gameplay video of Gears of War 2 from the X08 Canada Event.
The downed locust was trying to crawl away LOL.
not so much of an improvement from gears1( graphically speaking) but of course still getting it
Can't wait to be doing that to some of my friends online! I had over 10+ of my real friends playing the first one. There were times we were all online and some had to be left out. That was some fun stuff.. The game is looksbeautiful even with that crappy quality of the vidz. Best graphics any game on any console out right now!! Can't wait to get my hands on this..
Ttam That's a new addition, you can even do it yourself, when downed you can crawl to a saver place until your friends arrive.
Very excited about this.
this game is way better than rfom 2. i just got to say. but that guys armor is just waaaaaaaaaaaaay to chunky. @ below it's about medium paced. fast and tactical.
smal maps and only 8 players online.. how can this be better then RES2? You're so pathetic.
it's ten players online FIRST OF ALL. SECOND OF ALL i love the PS3 and almost always support it. but i not to biased to the point when i cant admit that one game is OBVIOUSLY BETTER then another. i have played both of the first games and RFOM doesn't compare to gears.and more player and bigger maps don't make a AAA title. in fact in the old game i would only play in small game becuz to many people running around got me killed every ten seconds.
So you love the PS3, yet you don't know the name of R2? It's not Resistance: Fall of Man 2. it's Resistance 2. Mebbe you're biased toward Gears, just an incy tiny little itty bit?
not peoples opinions, for mine is the only one that counts for me. Resistance 1 was so much fluid and had faster action then gears 1 with so much more going on. Gears 1 was good, but didn't have anything on Resistance 1. I think after playing these two, the same thing can be said. If you want fast action, and alot of people to compete against get Resistance, if you want a smaller group to play against get Gears. Their both great games, but can hardly be compared considering the different game veiws of perspective and the sheer amount of action on screen that Resistance has going on at one time with more people playing. I always thought Gears was kinda choppy and shiny in their story mode compared to the more fluid Resistance. Resistance really was better considering it was a launch game that did so much in the little time it had to do it. On the other hand I always thought Gears 1 would be so much better then all the hype it got.
they look slow, was Gears 1 this slow paced?
Not at all, when playing on Live it's fast and furious. I don't think the person playing really knew what they were doing.
waddup buddy? long time no see, how's that ass irritation going?
then yes the action is slower. Its still fun, bet yes it is slower with less action going on. Resistance 1 played way smoother then Gears did with more action and stuff on the screen at once. Gears 1 was alittle choppy.
I played Gears1 at my friend's house on his twice RRODed Xbox360, and judging from the game play from this article, IT'S ALMOST played out the same way... I mean to previous Gears1 owner, what are the "major" differences? It feels quite slow, actually.
actually its not that slow, it seems slow at first but its the perfect pace for the game its not like cod or unreal where you just run in and shoot, you gotta think about it not to mention the guy was walking 90% of the time, roadie run is way faster...not really sure why he walked the whole game
I noticed that as well. In Gears 1, I'm either running or diving 80% of the time. This guy was playing like he was out for a Sunday stroll, he would have gotten raped by a skilled squad.
Also confused? Contradict each other much? 2.1 wrote, "...when playing on Live it's fast and furious..." 4.0 wrote, "...it seems slow at first but its the perfect pace for the game[...]its not like cod or unreal where you just run in and shoot, you gotta think about it" 4.2 wrote, "Gears 1.5 = Flop"
how can i be confused about my opinion?
@4.4 You just admitted that a dying duck has been outselling the 360 for quite some time. Good job.
just from that video you can see how much better the shot gun is compared to gears 1, this is looking very very promising
My most anticipated game of this Fall for me. Loved the first one.
Is this Gears of War 1 or 2? I can't see the difference =/
its ok dyingduck if your upset that none of your ps3 exclusive titles have even come close to outselling gears 1 and we all know that rofm2 and any of the other exclusives that sony might have left is gonna even come close to competing with gears 2 i can say all this cuz i have both but i prefer xbox360
the score you get at the bottom when you kill someone...i hope they fixed the host advantage issue and im set for this holidays :)
According to CliffyB the host advantage will be gone in G2, they have come up with some "clever" way to avoid it. Although dedicated servers would of stopped that problem.
I dare any droid to say that wasn't the coolest thing he's ever seen. How the f*ck could anyone but a pathetic sony fanboy rather play something like Constipation 2 than this? LMAO. Sad fanboys were owned. Keep believing that more players = better gameplay. Pathetic morons! LOL
said DROID. Well said LOL
Looks decent, resistance 2 will be better
hmm. looks like fun. graphics are a little bit 2006 if you look at games like Uncharted, MGS4 and Resistance 2 .. but it´s ok.
Those games in no way shape or form are any better looking than Gears 2. Saying it and wishing it, doesn't make it true. http://www.gametrailers.com... http://www.gametrailers.com... http://www.gametrailers.com... Gears 2 http://www.gametrailers.com...
Gears 2 looks good obviously, but not in EVERY single little possible aspect.
back several months ago I was so pumped about this game and i still am but I have to admit that im not as impressed with Gears 2 as i was several months ago.. I guess after seeing such games like Killzone 2, Littlebigplanet and fallout have spoiled me on the graphics and gameplay side that Gears 2 just doesnt have that same excitement as say Gears 1 did. Oh and im still buying this day 1, its just when I watch gameplay videos of this it just doesnt seem as impressive as it use to be for some reason
With a name like LittleBigKillzone, I don't think you even know what a 360 looks like, let alone any of it's games.
My only issue with Gears 2 is that it seems like there are 2 main scenarios every time... 1) Damage enemy until they are doing the exact same crawl every time for a finishing move 2) Have a chainsaw duel until one person gets cut in half. While the finishing moves are cool, I really think they've made this game wayyyy to scripted. How many times will enemies end up on all 4s, crawling away the same way? This is going to get old unless they add some more variables into the mix.
Inside those things are other scenario's. An enemy could crawl away to safe place and be revived, they could crawl away and bleed to death, they could try to crawl away and instead be brutally finished or my favorite they could be surrounded by their enemy and stuck with smoke grenades so they look like a smoldering campfire crawling across the map.
I have seen several comments on graphics in both zones. Lets keep in mind that this video is a guy 6 feet back with a camera zoomed in and tilted to the side.
That doesn't mean that people haven't seen better videos and screen shots to judge the graphics off of.
