Master Chief lovers take note: Gears of War 2 wipes the floor with him and his ring worlds.
If Gears 2 kicks Halo 3's butt, AND Resistance 2 is destined to kick Gears 2 butt, THEN Resistance 2 obviously kicks Halo 3's butt even more! LOL! :) Flame Shield On!
Gears is better than Halo.
R2 looks too generic. I imagine it will get scores in the 80's whereas Gears 2 has AAA title written all over it.
PLAYSTATION 3 PONES!!!!!
Amazing the number of Fony ... opps Sony ... trolls on this site. Always bashing on X360 news. Don't you guys have nothing to do ... or play ... on the PS3? Guess not. As for R2 beating Gears 2... no way. Not even close.
Why compare halo and gears? Instead, compare halo and resistance. They are both generic FPS`s.
Gears is for the frantically over the top bloodsport lovers. Halo3 is FPS rated E (though I coulda swore there's an M rating on it...yep there it is!) But don't insult Halo3. It's a DAMN fine game. The controls are tight and everything happens the way I want it to. Gears sometimes you stick to a wall at the wrong moment. I own Gears (and beleive me I'm a Gears fan) but sometimes I wish it was less glitchy. Halo3 has the TIGHTEST FPS controls EVER! I can f*ckin lob a grenade and switch my view in less than a second and STILL know I've hit my target. Maybe that's just me, but I know I can't do that with Gears. There's a chapter in Halo3 I'll never forget, not because it was cool but because I played it on Legendary and the strategy I used to survive was OFF THE WALL! It was a docking bay with a truck possitioned in the center and three grav lift items were placed on the floor next to it. There is a guy with The Hammer at the very end of the corridor (that alone should give it away). Of all things, I had to knock this shelf around and use it as my cover as they kept shooting. I effectively closed in the corridor by knocking that shelf around and was able to peak out every now and then to fire away. The shelf did its job of covering me from fire, and preventing them from getting past me and surrounding me. As I took them out, I had to get out from cover and grab their weapons and then duck back again (I had NOTHING! just those friggin weak blaster guns). When I saw that they were going to toss grenades, I would shoot them to force them to drop it near them. That would help quite a bit. Then the tougher group started making its way to me. I just held that shelf up as long as I could! Good memories... edit: disagree for mentioning a clearly satisfying moment in FPS gaming nirvana? WTF?
Gears is a TPS and Halo a FPS. It's like comparing Diablo and Final Fantasy, they're both RPGs, but their still very different. Report the fanboys as off topic. pls.
Don't let these guys bother you seriously. If they want to talk mess let them because in the end we all know that nothing they have will ever amount to Halo or Gears. As far as which is better is just a matter of opinion, and for me it's Halo but for my brother it's gears.
What exactly do you mean by generic? I don't get how Gears and Halo aren't generic.
How is gears generic? I don't see another 1000 TPS games like gears out there. Troll harder.
lol i just found your comment funny :P
Both the story line and voice acting in Gears is generic.
With the edge to Halo because it revolutionized shooters. These are the 2 best console shooters out there not named Half-Life or COD4. we'll have to see if Gears 2 raises the bar though. These guys know something we don't seeing how they've already played Gears 2.
gears>>>>>halo imo. gives it a slap in the face in every aspect except for community features, where bungie is still unbeaten.
oh wow, so xbox fanboys are fighting amongst each other now.
Turn into Megazord.
lol at your username :P
hmmm.. hard to decide.. I vote Gears of War. It's just too baddA55!
Already kick halos butt in terms of gameplay, graphics, and single player mode? Because gears of war 1 was certainly the better game in almost every way. And is the best xbox 360 game right now.
I played Gears of War and wished for more (since it was a bit short). I played Halo 3 for one day and returned it to Gamefly.
but i still think halo although graphics wise is a bit low, the gameplay and story line are extremely good =) especially the forge mode. and yeah like i said i really got into the story mode and i only played Halo / 2 a couple times when around friends so =)
Resistance 2 kicks Gears of War 2s butt,so this story is irrelevant.
is it because it's 60 people online?
LOL, yeah because you've played it, M I RITE?
Because it got no Pew-Pew-Guns and got Characters with true faces. Also got a way better story. And way better gameplay-mechanics. And way better graphics. But the Online Multiplayer may not be as good as Halo 3. But the Multiplayer itself is way better than Halo 3 (Non-Online).
And they both suck,, so does resistance. I hope all of you come to your senses and away from this console war and realize that COD is the best shooter ever created. Screw Team Fortress, screw all these exclusive games. They play just like the old ones. If all you do is play COD then you will see that COD5 will be the most played game on the psn and xbox live.
you are insane,cod 4 is good but extremely overrated garbage. it barely takes skills since helicopters get you free kills and the power ups are stupid.Also the new 'cod 5" sucks,infinity ward is not making that piece of crap and cod 4 will be played more i promise. None will top gears 2 online this year though,halo 3 will eventually be #1 again sometime next year because it has more stayin power than any other game.
But over-rated. The martyrdom perk is a joke and an insult to the FPS genre. there is far too much grenade spam. the whole idea of leveling up is a great idea but when a player does something bonehead like going on suicide runs just to get XP then they should lose points for having a crappy kill/death ratio. Halo takes into account people's actual ability when deciding your ranking (i.e kill/death ratio and other factors that COD4 ignores). Some of this could be alleviated if they had more hardcore game modes. The game has so much potential but tries to be too noob friendly and turns off a lot of FPS veterans. Lastly, the kill-boxes are sh!t and sniping is a joke because of the ammount of shots that just flat out don't register as hits. This is why COD4, unlike Halo 3, will never be used on a professional gaming competition level like MLG. COD4 is noob heaven. play some counter-strike 1.6 and get back to me later.
Some points are good like melee but overall i disagree with gamedaily. And wtf? gears having better music than Halo? Hell no,Halo has the most amazing soundtrack i heard in video games.
Gears in my opinion is a way better game, way more ingross. Halo was soooooo repetative.
wrong,halo has a better story and how is it repetitive when in gears you pop and shoot.there's an argument there bro. just accept that both are great games.
when i sold Halo 3 right after i beat the single player and was bored immensely after a month of multiplayer. the adrenaline i got from GoW online was nothing compared to the ho-hum dribble of Halo 3. not to say Halo 3's multiplayer is bad, but GoW's is like finet mignon to halo 3's 3 dollar steak at the local popeyes.
Well spoken and I agree with that fully
I disagree. Their is absolutely nothing out there that can compete with a game of team slayer or MLG with high ranks. I'm talking level 45-50 ranks. The competition is fierce and fun. Gears is great but the competition level of Halo 3 is second to none.
gears is like the imported Argentinian steak from Gouchos grill vs halo 3 which is like a piece of beef that they call steak from Harvester http://www.gauchorestaurant... vs http://www.harvester.co.uk/
but I have played both on a friends console. Halo is too [email protected] slow. Not enough action compared to GoW.
Maybe it's better...because its a MUCH NEWER GAME...
Gears is better than Halo 3.But take Gears 1 and Gears 2 together along with Halo 3 and together they are no match for Halo 1 on Xbox/PC.
ah halo 1...if you take that original game, redo the textures and graphics to next gen standards and release it...i would CERTAINLY buy it again...lmao
2 completely different titans. One is a third person shooter and the other is a first person shooter. I love both but I personally prefer first person and that's why Halo 3 is number 1 in my book.
word. Halo3 is FPS gaming nirvana. Controls are some of the tightest in any FPS I've ever seen or played.
Tight enough for you console FPS fans but looser than a thai h**ker for us Keyboard/Mouse FPS players. I'd like to see you play your console dipstick against a real FPS player. Forget your 640p resolution. 1600 x 1200 at 60+ frames per second and twitch skills ownz any console FPS wannabe. I'd love to see you try me on in Hl2 (if it were only cross console/pc compatible). I'd nail you with the crossbow across the arena w/o zoom. Especially if you try a jump on me. Have you hanging on the wall.
Come on dude. Everybody knows K/M is the way to go. I 100% knew that before I ever played an FPS on the consoles. We're just talking about FPSs on the consoles. No need to get all bent out of shape about that.
True. I probably overstated it a bit. But some of these console players (especially those virgin to K&M) are crazy if they think thumbstick controls are tight.
Oh a PC guy. Well guess what my man. Did you know that I was a top ranked Unreal 2004 player for the PC? That's right, I used to own in that game. Mastered the k/m setup. I know everything about the twitch skillz. But I have to say that Halo 2 was the first game to ever take me away from my pc. The competition is more fierce. And Halo 3 is just perfect. The best control scheme I have ever played. I can guarantee that I can play you in any PC game of your choice and be able to kill you. I might not be able to beat you, but I will get some kills. I can also guarantee that you will NOT KILL ME once if we played a 1vs1 in Halo 3. Guarantee 25 kills and 0 Deaths. Halo Multiplayer takes more skill than most PC shooters.
I can't believe we're pitting Gears against Halo3. They're both good games, but Halo3 takes the crown hands down. They both deserve 10/10, but Halo3 is just too pure. Gears is an absolute must buy for fans of shooters, but Halo3 owns online. Forge is TO DIE FOR!
xbox 360 know both games are spectacular even kz 1+ 2 and r:fom 1+2 will not equal halo in just sales alone, now you throw gears in there and its a wrap. both games have sold well because of popularity and well its just that dun to play.
It should have been why Halo 3 and Gears of war kicks LBP and Resistance 2 butt.
I agree whole heartedly Gears is much better than Halo. Halo was never as genre defining as many people make it to be. It helped consoles with online, but that's about it.
Nobody's debating Gears' glory. I just think that Halo3 did shooters IN GENERAL a lot better. Even Epic themselves stated that Gears' online went way out of proportion when people started utilizing one generic strategy to succeed. The run, roll, and shotgun/melee tactic. I own both in their tin box CE versions. Blue and Red...
I agree that Halo did a lot for online shooters for console, but that doesn't help the fact that the single player is kind of average. I believe Halo's online is one of the best. But I like my single player to be just as good or better than the online and I feel that the Halo series is an online game with single player tacked on. Halo's story is too convoluted for me (WTF is going on? MC kills aliens to stop them from gaining control of Halo's I think), and I was never able to get into it for that reason. And I don't like how we know nothing about Master Chief (I like character development). While Gears story isn't award winning it sticks to being simple and engaging. Aliens arise from under Sera and you have to kill them before they kill you. I'm all for an amazing story, but when it confuses more than it entertains it becomes a problem.
Sure, halo did nothing but set the standard for online console gaming, except for perfecting the controls for Console FPS games and single handedly saving the original Xbox. The storyline in Halo 1 and Halo 2 kicks ass, Halo 3 in my opinion has the worst storyline out of the three.
Yes they did kick of online, but there were plenty of other games well on their way it's just that Halo became the first to get everything right. Halo controls well as do most other shooters, to me (again to me) the controls of a game is never a good argument unless they just don't work. Yes Halo did do a lot for the Xbox, and I'm glade to see that some people are willing to admit it, that doesn't stop the fact that Gears is a refreshing take on the shooter genre, and to me (again to me) a better game (online no but overall yes).
gears2 > halo3
It just proves that fanboys will buy alot of anything regardless of quailty.
gears2 kills halo3..... halo3 was weak and alot of halo fans were disappointed. *goes and plays socom*
I love Gears of War and Halo so I'll try to keep any bias to a minimum. 1. Gears of War 2 has better music - wrong! This is one thing about Halo that is untouchable. No matter how much you may despise halo you have to at least give it this. 2. The Locusts are scarier than the Covenant - True. The Brutes are a real let down. Halo would have done better to keep the Elites as the main enemy. 3. Marcus Fenix is deeper than Master Chief - Close call. Even though Fenix has more personality I think that Master Chief has a deeper past and more detailed story around him. 4. Gears of War 2 looks better - True BUT even though Gears has overall much more detail the colors and explosions in Halo are alot better. 5.Gears has a better supporting cast - Wrong. To say that "besides Cortana and Avery Johnson the cast is unmemorable" is not fair because Gears is the same way without Dominic Santiago. 6. Gears of War 2's Horde mode - I can't comment on this since I haven't played Gears 2's Horde mode to compare. 7. Superior melee attacks - Depends on what you like better. More gore and realism or something that is just plain fun. (Grifball ftw!) 8. You can actually take cover - Again this is the realism argument. Halo 3 is more about jumping and circle strafing(fun) whereas Gears tries to be more realistic. Halo wouldn't be Halo with a cover system. In my opinion Gears of War is better to play single player or coop but Halo 3 is better online. The only reason I would give Gears 2 the nod over Halo 3 is that its newer so it will probably be a little better.
You know the writer of this article is a joke when he mentions the supposedly bad piano music in both the 2nd and 3rd game - prat.Gears1 music was suitable yet not really all that inspiring of memorable even after many play throughs - 2nd one may improve on that though Gears i imagine for some took a little time before it clicked but it's a first class game that feels fresh and solid - Gears will of course refine and expand on this already working formula And Halo3 remains in my machine most of the time having now played well over 100 campaign missions - it must be quite good fun if i continuously play the hell out of it As for Resistance2, forced forgettable teen garbage killzone2 looks very well done though we're not going to know for a few months yet
I'd love to know the average age of people posting on this site
one is third person the other is 1st person. geez Next on comparison is why honda is better than ferrari.... comparing apples and oranges.
I like Halo, great FPS... but Gears is this shizzle. Best MP shooter ever made IMHO. Interesting, because both games are the most fun & most strategic shooters made. ColeTrain says: "BOOM ! Bring It On Sucka... That's My Kinda Sh!t !!!"
Gears ONE kicked Halo 3's butt, lol. Of course Gears 2 will. And together, Gears and Halo utterly destroy Sony as a gaming company. pooooooor sony with their cheap knockoff shooters like Grayzone and Constipation :(
seriously dude...that is the saddest attempt at trolling... constipation? really? come on now. try harder. i know it hurts that small brain of your but damn it son try a little harder.
1. Halo has better music, Gears of War 1's soundtrack was pretty basic, let alone they sampled some audio from the Halloween 4 movie soundtrack. 2. The Covenant may not be scarier, but they are more dangerous since they can actually leave any planet... however, imagine if the Flood took over the locusts? That makes the Flood even scarier. 3. The Master Chief does have alot of character depth, you have to read the novels in order to understand him. 4. Halo has the better supporting cast,(Cortana, SGT. Johnson, Arbiter, Lord Hood, Captain Keyes, etc) we don't even get into most of the characters in Gears Of War 1, other than they are all tough guys who want to prove a point. Everything else is subjective.
However, Halo 3 is still going to be better. Also, November 7th, I'll have 2 copies of Gears 2 for some fantastic co-op of the 3rd greatest game of our time. Greatest Series: 1. Halo 2. Ninja Gaiden 3. Gears of War This is in order, its the greatest, period.
Superman 64 > Halo 3. And I'm not kidding.
