Bit-Tech: Gears of War 2 Hands-on Preview

Joe Martin writes:

"There's a simple way to look at this and that's to say that Gears of War 2 is essentially just the same as Gears of War. All the things that made the first game annoying are here too, as are all the things which made Gears good the first time around. Obviously the good still far outweighs the bad, but the brilliance of them is dulled somewhat by the fact that we've seen them all before."

That was the worst preview I have read about this game so far. Oddly enough as far as I have seen from the game videos is that it has improved alot in almost all department. People complaining about the graphics not being great are stupid. Its the best looking game on 360. Even original gears was an astounding beautiful game, you cannot deny that. It literally defined how the next gen games will look like.

This isn't just for this article, but for a lot of articles in general. It really irks me when a sequel comes out and people say they don't Enjoy the game because it seems too much like the Original!!! Well “DUH” !!!!

Of course the Great games will play like the original because the First Games were Great! Why would they go and reinvent the wheel if they don’t have too? Imagine how pissed the previous fans would be if they changed the backbone of what they enjoyed. I know I would! I buy a sequel because I want more of the same.

If the original wasn’t good, I can understand why it needs major changes. you would have to make HUGE improvements to convince people to give it another shot. I mean if it was bad then, you would be dumb to think it would be good now.

Just wanted to get that off my chest!

Just because someone has a different opinion than yours doesn't make them stupid. Go back to school, kid.

--"The first game managed to become successful based on the awesome graphics, solid performance, enjoyable multiplayer and accessible singleplayer. From what we’ve seen, all of that is still there, but it hasn’t matured or truly grown and the result is that this feels much more like Gears of War 1.1 than Gears of War 2. "

More of the same is such a bad thing, especially when it comes to Gears of War.

A gears of War RTS? Or maybe an RPG? You're finishing the story of the first Gears. They have put more into this game than the first one. Really not all that much you could change about it. Graphics were great. Gameplay was great. Online was great. Its hard to change any of that without changing the core of the game.

and i love the 1st it was a graphic hog game the best ive seen but if they said its going to be bigger better more badass than i dont see 5 on 5 being bigger badass graphics dont look that much better besides alittle more red i mean look at the difference from resistance 1 and 2 its a big difference in detail and graphics and mutliplayer 60 im not putting it down i just expected a lot more bigger and badass. cliffy b i am 2 a little disappointed but im still going to get it its the best graphics on the 360 .

Software_Lover3363d ago

Yes but look at Resistance 1 and look at Gears 1. Resistance is a decent game (I still have it and played it some more yesterday), but it had more improvements to make than Gears did. Especially on the Graphics side.

And Gears isn't a 60 vs 60 style game. Im sorry its not. Now you could make that Argument for Halo 3 or any Halo game for that matter but Not for Gears. Gears isn't made to be large # of players on large maps. But to each his own. Everyone has their own opinion.

Gears of war 1.5 = same old, same old.

Resistance 2 = BIGGER, BETTER, and MORE BADASS than Gays at war 1.5

RESISTANCE 2 is SCALE BEYOND the 3rd60.
Gears of war cant even pull of 1/10th of the scale of R2.

King Me3363d ago

This is just one preview,but if it really is too same-y as Gears 1,then I don't think we'll see a lot of perfect scores for Gears 2.

Yet Gears 1.5 will still out sell Resisflop 2.

being a Sonyfvckboy here on N4G is like being the smartest kid with down syndrome!

Gears2 will deliver all goods and then some.

Resistance 2 will probably also be better than Resistance 1...................hell,it can't get any worse,that's for sure.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!! Great comment Bon

You notice how the nutters don't come around in the many glowing previews of the game and flock to this one.

Like the dog that's been kicked one too many times they are rabid!

This game needs no defending and I refuse to do it. It is going to own the PS3 line-up this fall, every single game on that system is going to be owned by Gears 2. They know it, that's why they are hear fighting tooth and nail to try and smear it.

Gears 2 will own this holiday. Done.

I'm fine either way, the game play was great in the first gears of war, I wouldn't want them to change it too much.
