AusGamers recently went hands-on with the first act for the single-player campaign of Gears of War 2 and have constructed five fears they had going into the session and whether or not these fears were justified.
Sounds like they already knew what they were going to say before they had hands on. lol Silly post.
a few previews have said the same thing to be honest even ign have highlighted the same points,unreal3 engine is old tech now, i guess reviews will be out soon so truth will be revealed for everyone,honestly just dont expect the same impact as gears 1 and im sure you wont be dissappointed,i am staying away from the posts in the reviews cause i can see the BIGGEST flames ever in the history of n4g and i dont want to be involved
Relax POG, I'm sure they'll just shovel out 10's across the board like they did for the first one. And everyone with an XB will buy it. Sales and Metacritic, thats what you guys care about isn't it? BTW, he listed legitimate concerns and gave reasons for them, for and against. You're the one who sounds like he made up his mind before reading the article, as always.
it doesnt matter cuz at this time i think LBP has taken all the hype of all other games even SONY haters like WIRED and EDGE will also give LBP 10/10 do u see Gears 2 previews on front pages???? No The hype Gears 2 had was taken away by Resistance 2 and frankly speaking R2 is much better than Gears 2 in all areas including story and Graphics dont be surprised if Gears 2 gets 8 from many websites cuz unlike 2008 no one will be wowed by its graphics especially after seeing resistance 2, killzone 2 and Crysis
i got a XB and im not gonna buy it im looking for fallout. heck im looking for left 4 dead more then gears..gears is gonna be the same crap with added features. at least left 4 dead is almost a new experience in game play. guitar hero 4 is more exiting then this game and im a rockband fan.
i fear the xbox brand becoming extinct.
I fear PStards committing mass suicide when they realized that they spent $599 US dollars on a system that can't play such a great game like Gears of War 2.
Please do not talk about 2007, the year of your so-called glories. Your talk of 06-07 for bashing ps3 is already extinct.
Just because the PS3 failed in 2006 and 2007 doesn't mean its off-limits to talk about. 2008 is another year for an inevitable failure for the PS3, so does that mean next year I won't be able to talk about it? Bummer
and it is much better than your crap box . mass sucide --well u will be committing it as soon as more LBP reviews start coming in
Down Down Down in a Red Ring of fire.....as I went Down Down Down the FLAMES got higher. http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/... Gotta love Johny Cash
I fear for teh dodo's and dinosaurs being extinct =(
"the PS3 failed in 2006/2007" So the PS3 failed but still managed to outsell you. Ouch. 3rd60 is flopbox or what.
just a Flippin stupid idiot. find some thing better to say instead of your lame $600 crap. u never had that much money ever i bet and your Moms wallet dont count. AHAHAH RROD get it? no u dont ur a retard.
xbox will be here forever, count on it.
your comment brings me memories when they said the same about sega
There is a POSSIBILITY that the xbox brand will be extinct. Count on it as your number one fear.
If you loved the first one chances are you'll get the second one.
CONFIRMED. Crap graphics same repetative gameplay. Another flop to add to your long list of flops.
silly article i swear, this world is on the eve of extinction. Nobodies got a goddamn brain!
I hope u wont be crying when reviews are in This is not 2006 . This is 2008 where Gears 2 is up against more formidable R2, Motorstorm 2 and perhaps the biggest game ever LBP LBP has taken all the hype of all games . i just hope that u have sweet time with your console and Gears 2
exactly what i thought about game. Game is flop in terms of achievement. But it will sold pretty good 'coz 360 fanboys have no taste on game. Their number one game is Halo 3 which explains everything.
Why are you guys talking about the Xbox brand being extinct when the ps3 is in 3rd position in the console war.
Yeah, when I played the first one I loved its graphics, but the story was as awkward as the dialogues. Im not gonna bother with this one however, it looks exactly the same as the first one. I would rather spending my money on bioshock, resistance 2 or LBP.
Because ps3 owners live in this fantasy world where they think the console will shift 15 million units by christmas
It is very much possible However as soon as LBP reviews are in expect PS3 sales to explode. dont be surprised if LBP gets 100% at metacritic
Looks like certain types of people have it in for this game before its even released, end of the day those who are going to buy it will love it and thats all that counts. Funny thing is mgs 4 was more or less the same type of game play as number 2 and 3 only with updated visuals yet everyone said that was a good thing, what gives?
MGS4 was a massive step up from previous metal gears,number one story....tied up all the loose ends,gears story well wasnt, controls a huge revamp and improvement,aging snake which affected gameply,the mrk 1,upgrading your weapons,selling weapons,camosuit,and i havnt even mentioned the graphics!...timmy please use common sense, gears2 will be a great game but as previews have stated it will be more of the same gameplay and graphics wise, thats no bad thing as gears1 was a great game it just wont bring anything new to the table so just play and enjoy
You make no sense...MGS4 played similar but the visuals where jaw dropping compared to the previous ones...it is the first "next gen" Metal Gear...if you want to compare Gears situation compare it to Resistance cause both came at the same time...Resistance 1 was a great game but visually it lacked something even though 12-15 enemies on screen at once was an achievement at the time considering the detail on each enemy, but back on topic Resistance 2 upgrades the visuals significantly, it adds a whole 2nd campaign coop mode and increase the online players +20. So you expect Gears will do the same but in Gears case they just polished the first game and hence why fanboys call it Gears 1.5 I don't know if i made sense or not...
Did he say MGS2, MGS3, and MGS4 played the same? Really, dude? They're 3 entirely different games... Play them and you'll see.
more of the same...and he's right...no advancement or reason for the title "2"...Gears 1.5 should still be fun....just dont expect a revamp, anything revolutionary or maturing about this installment. Bigger and more Badass....brilliant game design???
The other previews ive read seem way more positive on those 'fears'
Gears 2 wont be that bad.
I doubt it will get 100% at metacritic
I know what you are saying and maybe i didnt elobarate enough on the similarities of the games but if you take away all of the fancy sh1t that came with MGS4 it is esencially the same gameplay, i have played all of the mgs from the ps1 to the ps3 and that is my opinion.
Hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. MGS4 is More of the Same and their is nothing wrong with that. Legend of Zelda's and Marios never change! Gears of War 2 is going to live up to the hype. Graphics are absolutely stunning, this guy needs his eye's checked, gameplay is more engaging in act 1 then anything in gears of war 1. Refinement is all we need from gears of war 2. It's still to this day the only competition gears of war 1 has. Really looking forward to portable cover, riding brumaks and reavers. Using the new weapons and killing everybody in fancy new ways. Skorge would eat Leviathan and RAAM for breakfast.
mgs4 not only revolutionized the methods of story telling, it ushered in true advancements to gameplay and is the only exclusive on any platform this gen to garner 10's from IGN & gamespot. Mario...just went into the stratesphere, raggedy pun-intended, and involved manipulation of motion and gravity. gears has not made it into the holy grail, it doesn't even have an up to date map.
I'm just sicken how this site went to the gutter. Just nonstop crap by the sony fanboys. Read this and just shut up... "It's easy to be so overwhelmed by the awesome graphics in Gears 2 that you don't notice the huge number of new features, weapons, enemies, and vehicles. Once you pick your jaw up off the floor, Gears 2 reveals itself a profound leap forward from its impressive predecessor." Game Informer NOW SHUT IT FANBOYS!
http://neocrisis.com/conten... and agree with everything aus has said.. compression isn't hiding 100's of on screen enemies and bad dialogue. The game is empty, its you and 3 friends vs 4 other monsters lol. Video footage of Gears is worth 10502051205 words... lol Game Informer can say what they want, thank god everyone has eyes.
blademask go to the open zone your another troll who is flooding this site. Jesus it was much better when this site was unknown, a few fanboys here and there but not like this.
HAHA your going to compare some noobie site like neocrisis to a very respected magazine like Game Informer??? Get of here troll. You just pwned yourself.
lol you guys really ARE blind. -- guess you cant really see the truth. Its sad lol.. its right in front of you literally. But you'd rather take someone elses word for it? hahahhah... you need to start playing the "other peoples opinion" simulation.i hear its goty to u guys.
This article is a fine example that Gears of War 2 will fail. A very sad time to own a 360.
You gotta be kidding guys? I'm a PS3 owner, but this game is going to sell through the roof. Even if it is "Gears 1.5" as some of you say, the sheer size of the install base means this will top 5 mill LTD easy. If that's the case, who cares if Ausgamers fears over single player??? You are all setting yourselves up to be drastically disappointed if you think it will flop
funny how so many people who dont like the game and have no intention of buying it,love to go into these posts and just troll lol. fact is,gow2 is gonna be a quality title and one of the best games and best selling this year. and why does rfom2 always gets mentioned in a gow2 post? gow2 wont have the same impact as gow but that dont mean it wont be a better game.and from what i have seen of gow2 it is shaping up to be better than gow in every aspect. hate gow2 all you want but it wont stop it from being one of the most enjoyed games of this gen. and just how 360 fanboys hate on mgs4 so ps3 fanboys hate on gow when both sets would love the games if it was on their console
Gow= god of war Geow= gears of war
I've seen enough overwhelmingly positive previews for Gears of War 2 to know that this one particular article doesn't represent everyone who has played the latest build. When the article states that the cheesy dialogue would make them turn the sound down, I just laughed. So, you wouldn't want to hear Cole Train's hilarious lines throughout the story? Gears of War is cheesy - that's what makes it so darn cool. It isn't intended to have a deep, complex story and not every game needs one. Gears of War 2 will rock, there's no doubt about that. I look forward to getting some disagrees, seeing as practically everyone on N4G owns just a PS3. It's funny how much time they spend slating Gears of War 2. Notice how 360 owners don't do that for Resistance 2 - it's because it isn't a threat.
