After watching the the 14 minutes of gameplay that was leading up to the very final cutscene, I found myself very disappointed. It seems like Epic followed in the exact footsteps of Halo 2 and just rewrote the same story.
WHY DID I READ THIS?!
because you were too curious to not read it ;)
I don't see why people are complaining. Its not the best ending but its a HUGE improvement over gears 1 ending. At least epic is actually TRYING to be cinematic. Its their first try at a cinematic game so its bound to suck a bit. I really don't know what you guys were expecting. The unreal engine water effects are trash though I would say wait and play the game before fully judging the ending
That ending was a quote "HUGE" improvement over the original's ending??? DAMN! what was the first game's ending like? Was it equivalent to the ending of a NES game?
Damn Negative I busted up over that. Bubbles.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... Well if you didn't play it there is the ending. Its a HUGE improvement in my opinion. You have to remember cinematics and story isn't Epic's strong point. Gameplay and multiplayer is though
*Spoiler* Both Gears of War games can now be credited with horrific story lines. So that city just dropped into a sinkhole which caused the surrounding bay area to flood it? GG for originality. Those locust bastards should have built an arc. Mediocre narrative at the end, as well. Terrible ending to a terrible story.
Yeah, story sucks but gameplay is awesome! They really need to flesh out the story... remember back then when Gameinformer brought the first Gears of War preview? I thought it was going to be a aliens upon aliens that crawl around and rend you to pieces but not gun weilding humanoids. Oh well, i guess i like Aliens vs Predators 2 (PC game) too much.
They just let gears die with no possibility of it coming back? So at least when its over they can start a new ip. Whatever the ending sucked balls.
You do realize this is a sequel to a new game, and I would bet Microsoft would have a ruling in that decision too. Do your research before you type.
The ending is a [email protected]' joke, even a 3 year old child can write a better ending than this.
I agree. It's the same game as the first Gears and people expected something innovative? Here, have some true sequel innovation everyone: http://www.gametrailers.com...
but i bet u fanboys are right only because gears of war has some of the most kleshay story lines i have ever heard. (besides gaylo) but the story line isn't why i play gears. it's the game play that means the most to me. and gears will delivers their.
M$ needs this game to be a Money milker for XBOX 3 so Halo 126.96.36.199.8.9. AND Gears 188.8.131.52.7.8.9. Confirmed XBOX 3 games.
WRONG THIS IS THE GREATEST GAME EVER AND THE ENDING WAS SUPER KICKS ASS AND COOL!!! CLIFFB RULES ALL
Made me LoL
you are the MAN!!
I actually really liked the ending. What's the problem? It's a good ending, leaving you intrigued for a third. You people have no sense of culture.
cause we all know GeoW II is really all about sitting down to a good cup o tea n' crumpets :/ WTF?! Culture? :/
"You people have no sense of culture." wtf??? who says that anymore? seriously, wtf does our "sense of culture" have to do with geow 2? whatever. This ending blows! It's basically the same ending as the first one! Reisistance 2's storyline is so much better...and LONGER too.
That would be very hard to make a good story for anyway, who cares about the story mode though, you'll only play through that 2 or 3 times (once on your own, one or two times co op.) MP IS WHERE ITS AT! (and horde :D)
I didnt care about lack of story in gears 1, and guess what? I still don't. Gears is about no bullsh!t action. You can saw people in half. I don't care about the story, I care about playing an entertaining game with a cold beer. And sawing people in half. Look at the bright side, at least theres pretty solid grounds for a Gears 3. Why are so many gamers such negative people? The glass is half full, not half empty.
honestly, i forgot what the story was for gears one up until gears 2 stories started popping up and i played gears 1 again i liked gears for its action, not for its story...so doesnt really matter to me, but others...ummm...not too sure
Games have come a long way and there is no excuse for a lacklustre story. Games are rivaling the movie industry even surpassing it dollar for dollar so there is no excuse. I hope that games are not just built for the MP only because that just sucks I love to remember a game that impacted me like FF7 and the MGS series not just that I sawed someone in half.
I care because I want our beloved industry to actually grow, not sloooooowly evolve. I prefer SP over MP also.
damn!! i just got the 3 red rings of death while i was finishing the game!!!! i am mad!
So you have a modded 360 right ? Good Luck asking M$ for a coffin.
I had a fan blowing on my 360 without anything near it on a flat side of the desk. That helped... also, if you really want to... Arctic Silver helps...
i seriously wonder, sometimes, why i dont get the RROD... i bought a pro 20gb model about a month before the release of halo 3 and i had many (and i mean many...especially during summer break) all-nighters with my friends over xbl the place where i keep it is in is an area (3ft H x 4.5ft W x 3ft D) that is closed on the sides, top, bottom, and back (except for a hole for cables) and 2 openable glass windows on the front (and i sonetimes for get to open that) its part of the tv storage unit on the bottom and it gets hella hot in there...no joke but back to MP42409 comment...there is no way you can get warrenty to work on that so your stuck either getting another 360, or buying/playing another system...that is IF what you said about getting RROD while playing a leaked copy is true
...just pray it doesn't happen to you because those unmentionable rings suck big time.
"why i dont get the RROD" Just wait for it.
doesnt matter for me anymore cause i bought the 60gb and gave that 20gb to my bro...hopefully it holds out for a couple years longer
Are they serious??
The first games have the protagonist on bended knee for BOTH. The second games BOTH have the protagonist in the same profile standing up. So much flop in my opinion. Cliffy B. is still wet behind the ears of game development :)
I bet it'll still get 9.5's from every site regardless of how the campaign mode is.
well, i guess Resistance 2's story is going to be bigger better and Badass then.
i knew this game was gonna let people down. every game that has come out for 360 has been a let down. from halo 3 to fable 2 to gears 2. BIG LET DOWN.
lets not talk about PS3's let downs... Fable 2 is great and Halo 3 is okay expected better but I thought it was fine. And like the guy down there... When has a game ever had an epic ending...
MGS series had an epic ending. DB.
WHAT?! Have you never played FF games before? The Zeldas of the past? So what were the end battle of Ares & Zeus? OK, let's get current. Did you not play the end Boss King Bohan? or... the mother of all EPICNESSSSSSS MGS-motha'acking-4? I feel kinda sad for you that you haven't played any games you can consider as having Epic endings. :(
People who absolutely hate the xbox 360 think the ending sucks....lucky they dont own a xbox so they can see the ending here. Now lets see the ending of warhawk or socom;confrontation since Im not bothering with a ps3....oh wait a minute. You both didnt see the "oh wait a minute" I guess....exactly my point. hahahahahhahaha
HAHAHAH... Socom and Warhawk has an ending?! Maybe the other Socom games but not Confrontation.
if there's any ending that was Bigger Better and Badass, it was God of War II's ending. Greatest ending of this Generation so far: MGS4's Ending. "People who absolutely hate the xbox 360 think the ending sucks....lucky they dont own a xbox so they can see the ending here. Now lets see the ending of warhawk or socom;confrontation since Im not bothering with a ps3....oh wait a minute." Dumbest statement ever, how can Online only games have an ending? you just set yourself a trap of dumbness.
Totally expected. I have a 360 and gears and I beat it and it was an absolute disappointment. RAAM a boss battle? I thought they were kidding. I love how 360 fans attack SOCOM for being a MP only title yet are willing to accept a game with no story, no improvement, and a multiplayer mode that added a whole player. Boy that's innovation for you.
Yup, we got suckered. Cant trust Epic at all. UT3 sucks. Gears 2 was mediocre... probably cuz of all the games coming out. Graphically, it's the same as the first. Next to Killzone 2 everything looks like crap. I really hope Fallout 3 and Resistance 2 delivers.
I expected a bit more than that from AAA title as it was stated by Cliff.
Well I just beat gears of war 2 with my friend's modded 360. And man, it's really just gears 1.5. Maybe gears 1.75. I am a big fan of Gears 1, but this felt just like a lot of the same. And the ending was straight BS. It really feels as if they could have had a bigger climatic ending. And proof that I've played the game, here are a couple quotes that were really entertaining. "Five motherf*cker!" "If they can ride it, so can we" Graphically, it is just gears 1 with better lighting. However, one huge improvement in the graphics is the scale of things. But texture-wise, and anti-aliasing it's all the same. And there wasn't that many new gameplay additions. Still I enjoyed it from beginning to end, and the game deserves a 9/10. Yeah and here we go, "you're just a PS3 fanboy" or "GTFO troll" or whatever. But that's just my opinion.
"If they can ride it, so can we" i heard that from one of the trailers or gameplay footage...i forget which one...i think they were talking about a brumak or something this one..."Five motherf*cker!", im not too sure of, i usually just blew through the trailers to see some gameplay footage, rather than hear them talk about it
@6.5 So you pay $60 for Gears 2 for the MP, whereas we pay $40 for SOCOM or Warhawk for the MP. Who are you trying to insult, exactly?
I was not looking forward to gears2 story anyways i dont' have a 360 have a ps3 but i'm a huge gears pc fan i play it all the time challenge me if u want gamertag is creep28 but anyways i think the multi is going to be good along with horde so that's somehting to look forward to but other than that gears is the new halo the game to most hyped up by MS there going to pour gravy all over it like the halo series, I think the HALO series is the STAR WARS of gaming oh well if the fans like I persanolly hate stars wars not in to it but this game will never a MGS4 no way!!!!!
Well this was expected after all the game was rush out by MS. Hey what the hell with all the disagrees I only tell the truth and I know it hurts
im trying to remember a game with an epic ending...help???
MGS4, COD4, Dead Space, etc ?
Epic or just proper? Some are proper good endings but without the grandeur. Otherwise you can pick Soul Reaver, Soul Reaver 2, or Soul Reaver Defiance.
What about the endings in these games: Shadow of the Colossus, God of War, God of War 2, ICO, etc...?
Anyone remember Vagrant Story? PS1's little gem? Yeah, the ending was just "Whoa..." Makes you want the game to never end since the player wants to know what happens to Ashley Riot (protagonist) after the epilogue.
SOTC ending was a complete mind f#ck.
i do remember VS still own it :P
^^ bad ending, bad crappy game.....oh well, Resistence 2 is coming YEAH, is going be Way Much Better than gear war
MGS3 ICO Shadow of the Colossus
MGS3 Shadow All final fantasy series Chrono trigger MGS4 (holy shiat, now thats best next gen ending) There are many many more with legendary endings but one things for sure, GeOW 1 and 2 ARE NOT PART OF THIS LIST hahaha! But the best of all, is still Zelda a Link to the past/ Secret of Mana ending with Secret of Mana topping Zelda IMO. It just felt like the perfect ending for an epic quest. Just the way its done, its a feel good yet feel sad that its over kinda thing. Ah good times.
CliffyB basically lied.
Advertising + hype + "badass" = sales For me, i jacked my friends copy and finished it in one sitting... well, minus the food and toilet breaks.
So you are saying something needed to be flushed no matter which room you were in?
Unfortunately the game is only Slightly bigger, slightly better, and slightly more badass.
So basically you admit to playing a game that hasn't been released yet? >_>
