The video shows the "new" Gridlock plus the destructible environments...
Im a PS3 Fanboy, but I have 2 admit, this game looks good. The bad part is that I would not buy a 360 for one game. Too bad. Anyways I am 2 busy this semester with SOCOM, LBP, Resistance 2, Motor Storm 2 and Bioshock. lol
And WipEout HD, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, Valkyria Chronicles, etc. Not to mention the multi-platform games.
real subtle trolling
As usual here come the insecure fanboys feeling the need to say "look what my console has! look!!". No one cares. The article is about Gears 2, ok? I guess the Race Pro article wasn't enough for you. This game will probably own the holidays.
No. More humor is called for.
Is that multiplayer or co-op?
What's with the fog? Is there a sniper rifle in this game or is it more of a close combat type of focus? Quite honestly, and correct if I'm wrong, it seems like EPIC has sacrificed view distance for close up detail. Can't tell how good the graphics are in this video due to the poor quality, however the game play does look solid. The fog is disturbing tho...... On a side note, I don't see how people compare this to R2, they are two different kinds of shooters, kind of funny when you think of the lengths people will go to win an argument.
Quite some time ago there were screen shot comparisons between G1 and G2. The fog that you mention was the first thing I noticed too. It's almost as if they added slightly more detail in your immediate surroundings, but that seems to have killed the detail in anything over 10 yards away.
When you mentioned that all I could imagine was Cliffy B force choking the developers. "Your lack of fog is disturbing." With or without fog though, I'm really looking forward to this game. I suppose it'll be a bit more of a new experience for me since I never really got to play the first Gear's multiplayer online. I expect it will be my favorite aspect of the game for this one though.
Or maybe that level has fog and the others don't? "I don't see how people compare this to R2, they are two different kinds of shooters" True indeed, one was an average FPS while the other one was a mega succesful, GOTY-winning third person shooter.
@ Jenzo.. Thanks for not answering ANY of my initial questions about the game and coming off like a complete A$$, you are truly a wealth of information that surely can never be fully tapped. Among fanatics on this site you are truly the master of making comments irrelevant to the current conversation. Thanks for the disagree, you sure made a powerful statement with that and your well thought out response. Kudos to you sir.
the way the camera move when the player run. it,s the best thing in GOW(for me) and the multiplayer looks good.
I didn't know there was multiplayer in God of War?? And the camera moves when you run? fascinating! Edit:Actually GOW=God Of War.It came out first..therefore it gets that acronym.Gears of War is know as GeOW.Now you understand (i hope)
u understand now(i hope).
if we are going to get nit picky GeOW= Gears of War or simply GEARS or GEARS2 GOW refers God of War. thats at least how I see it.
is go to Google.com and google GOW. See what comes up, then come back and know that we are talking about Gears of War.
haha.... so easy to get under the skin of sony fans. GOW stands for Gears of War to some players, and other God of War. Do you guys think just by saying it isn't actually means anything? give it up already, GOW2 win OWN ALL other system exclusives this holiday season just checked Google and Monty is right. So from now on God of War should be known as GoOW because i said so.
fight over a stupid spelling. ok GOW=GOD OF WAR. GEOW=GEARS OF WAR. happy now guys.
God of War is whatever you want to make it. Gears of War is GOW. Like I said before, just search it in any web search engine and it will come up with Gears of War not God of War. I know this is hard to accept, but its the the truth, try it yourself and you will find out.
Yeah.. it's late.. but Monty's too much of a tool not to show up. and I quote from 82 days ago (Monty's response to X-Play G-Phoria 08): "was there really any other option? GOW on the PS2 is awesome, and then bringing it to a handheld? A no brainer for best handheld game." So unless Gears of War came out on PS2, and the rest of the gaming community doesn't know about it.. well sir, you see where I'm going with this.
wtf I was JEALOUS of this game but it is already getting stale just from watching the gameplay videos :( and oddly R2 is getting better and better the more i watch its videos :P and you can compare the two for instance imagine that gow2 was a rotted meatball and R2 was a delicious plump fruit you my like meat balls better then fruit but you would always like the plump fruit over the rotten meat ball,... but you are right it is much more related to a persons taste of games than quality. EDIT: :P i still have 1 more agree than disagry you XBOX FANBOYS CAN DO BETTER THEN THAT...EDIT: WAIT NEVER MIND
Single player is looking good but multiplayer sucks donkey balls.
Resistance 2 will tear away Gears 2 in reviews and sales this Fall
Kinda like Resistance 1 beat Gears 1..... oh wait Gears 2 more then doubled Resistance's sales even with the Bundle resistance got and it scored something like 10 points higher on average. Resistance 1=Average everyday FPS, Gears 2=Epic.
I have no idea why your comparing Resistance 1 and Gears 2. And even if you were comparing Gears 2 to Resistance THEN based it off of past sales of prequels than you just broke your argument. Why does everything need to be like a console war? "Gears 2 is Gears 1.5; They lied and said it was 2..." "Resistance looks like an old and tired Halo..." Can't PS3 owners enjoy their respectable shooter as well as 360 owners enjoy theirs? ~I am a gamer...who will go broke this holiday~
Orly is that so? Gears of war 1 – 5 million sales on install base 9 million. Resistance 1 – 2+ million sales on install base of 1 million. ORLY? This holiday season, Gays in War 1.5 will be destroyed. R2 is “bigger, badder and more badass..”.than gays in war in every way!!!
i loved Geow, but this doesn't look any different really
the gameplay is pretty much there, they tweaked a couple of things and polished the game some more. I mean Gears 1 was great except for the glitches and host advantage plus short campaign. Epic said the campaign will be longer, that they fixed the host issue and that they fixed most of the glitches/exploits from the first, so even though its "more of the same" it should be rated higher than the first cause they virtually improved everything even if it just was by a little bit
I loved when he just hammered the locust with his fist..however, I hope they increase the draw distance..unless that is intentional because Its creeping me out only seeing that far..
It will be a good game but not strenching the boundaries of the 360 or maybe the systems is tapped already...
...destruction unless the steps are made of platinum coated diamond. To me it does not look any better...just different in terms of artistic style. Now if the wind was blowing through and kicking up dust and the weeds were being trampled underfoot, etc then I'd be going wow. However, it feels like Gears of War 1.2 and not Gears of War 2.
Yeah, it looks ok. But damn, that is a REALLY low draw distance. Gameplay looks kind of funky too. Everyone's rolling like a bunch of armadillos, hehe.
ripping this game won't even play the game yet alone own a 360 to play it on, so why are they so worried? I think they have to be pretty insecure especially if they have to name their PS3 titles in here! Thanks anyway Sony Fanboys Im well aware of what I can buy and play on my PS3 this holiday season... for me on PS3 it's all about LBP! on my 360 however Gears 2 and Fable 2 fit the bill perfectly! and if you can tell the games draw distance from this toilet dump of a video you must have jesus' eyes... cause I've seen better quality videos posted on these forums with better detail/view than this by a long shot! you wouldn't judge resistance based off a video sharing this same quality would you?... freaking fanboys...
persasly, play on both. I play on my roommates 360 for GEARS and will soon to be GEARS2, cant stop my current addiction to Castle Crashers right now though, that game is epic!
...I just no longer have it connected to Live. Let me ask you this, if Gears of War was the first real leap into Next-gen visuals on the 360 then how bigger leap is Gears of War 2 in your opinion? Gears 2 looks different and has some graphical improvements but its not looking that much better. Its not like the difference in visuals between say COD2 and COD4 which are both on the 360.
@ IWentBroke, Save for a few people, I don't see anyone ripping on this game anymore than any other game on this site. It seems like people like yourself don't know the meaning of opinion let alone a message board. You need to relax or just stop frequenting sites such as this. You act as if someone told you not to enjoy this game bro, if you like it then go get it, doesn't mean that people can't have an opinion good or bad about ANY game that is discussed on this site. If you have a differing view about something how about a valid reply stating your point and the reasoning behind it rather than resorting to childish labeling and name calling, doesn't that sound more productive??
Castle Crashers and Duke Nukem 3d on the same day!... Nice to see my comment already got 1 Sony Fanboy riled up, priceless!
wow i like gears but to be honest that didnt look too fun
what it is that people want. They complain that GOW2 looks like GOW. GOW is still one of the best looking games out to date and yet people expect it to be a vast improvement over the first. Its like Halo, its hard to improve on perfection.
I agree with you for the most part... however, I cannot agree that Halo is 'perfection'. I'm a big fan (of the first two games at least) but I don't believe that ANY game is 'perfect'. I personally believe Halo 3 should have been a bigger leap forward where overall 'graphics' are concerned. Unlike Gears of War it was being made on a new, more powerful platform so I expected more. Just my opinion though. The first part I agree with, however. Developers also have to stay within certain parameters or risk alienating their fanbase. Or rather, pissing them off. I'm not saying that this means a game can't improve vastly in a sequel... but if you deviate too far on a visual level you can have a backlash such as what's happened with Diablo III. When it comes to my personal feelings... I don't believe Gears of War 2 is a huge step above the original in terms of graphics. That, however, makes little difference to me. It's not being designed on a new console and it's simply using the same (albeit upgraded) engine so the progression in technical aspects is pretty much what I expected. Still a nice looking game, at least to my eyes. Though I can also understand how the art style may not be appealing to some.
you sure this aint gears 1??? sure looks awful a lot like gears 1... if you know what i mean but who cares im getting resistance 2 with ACTUAL improvements in graphics!!! i do own a 360 but i wont get gears 2 til it drops to $40
Maybe because it`s a level taken directly from gears 1. Wow, must be weird not having a proper thought process.
I dont think he was talking about the actual level. And your talking about not having "a proper thought process." Oh the irony...
oh silly me. I should have known he was judging the games graphics, from a youtube video, taken with a cellphone.
owned. yeah, he;s a moron. don't worry about him.
looks great enough for a sequal levels look more massive, way more stuff on screen at a time than in Gears 1 (speaking in campaign mode), the game is overloaded with new online game modes etc.. I feel it's more than a good enough leap over Gears 1. Also I think Gears 2 has way better visuals and more massive scenes going on in it than COD4. I feel Gears 2 is great looking for a sequal... unlike Halo 3 was to 2!
Epic should not release the game if that how the final project looks.. The fog and smoke screen gas combined together will leave the game in outter shiat when trying to shoot people. You will be getting shoot from the draw distance and not no where to shoot back. Epic has really little over one month to fix these issues before sending the Master Disc to the manufacter. Instead of giving you a lancer with the special edition;give me a "fan" to increase the draw distance inside of the game.. I am very worried about this game now.. I have looked at the video 5 time straight and it looks like shiat before the flies come..
poor droids are soooo jealous :) keep "hating". we love it!
Yeah, we do. It`s quite amusing seeing the droids trying to defend their console. Our console has already delivered and can now be purchased for a fraction of their paperweight.
To all the people complaining about draw distance...if you played the first game then you would know that gridlock is a map situated right next to a river or some sort of water body, that would explain the heavy fog. If you look at gameplay videos of the other map "security", you will notice the fog isn't present.
lol come on shutupandplay go easy on the froids man i mean we are going to be playing games like fallout 3 fable 2 Brothers In Arms and the crtically acclaimed monster that is Gears Of War 2 i mean sony turds are looking forward to games like LBP Naruto and Resistance 2 i mean havent you learned your lesson with queerzone already and last time i checked gears 1 destroyed resistance so i mean come on give them some slack LMAO
thats funny the games u just mentioned are on the ps3 aswell,i suppose u gonna play socom aswell?
Looks great. Wouldnt expect anything less.
once again the fanboys are in here proving that they care about graphics more than gameplay. gtfo to the open zone and stop ruining the site. Cannot wait for this this, R2 and L4D brilliance.
There must be a lot of ps3 fanboys here checking out what they are missing this holiday. I mean serously can we really talk about fog covering up view distance in this gen. It is like saying lens flare effects in Killzone are there to cover up explosion effects.
looks exactly like the 1st one.
They did improve the lighting.....
Exactly what i was going to say it looks like Gears 1 with better lighting...I own a 360 plan on getting this but anyone who claims there is nothing better than these graphics are blind fanboys who's first gaming system was a 360 or Xbox. And being just a tad better improvements from the first Gears there is no way this will get GOTY L4D looks better than this
Let's take the fanboy goggles off (both camps). Then compare the footage we've seen from GeOW 2 and R2 from the past few months. Which one looks better or more improved? Serious question.
KILLZONE 2 will smash this to pieces!P L A Y B 3 Y O N D !!!!
