Horde mode is the new hotness in Gears of War 2, but what happens when X-Play's Mr. Sark tries to take on wave after wave of Locust with only one ally? This happens!
And then The BoTs get the RRoD
te whol game is on YOUTUBE!!!!
the sound is phenomonal. never heard guns sound so real and visceral in a video game.
looks amazing...can't wait
Was that on casual, it looked pretty easy the enemies kept missing. Just 2 more days left.
Textures look like recycled food.
Wait, are you serious? And on a much more serious note, how the hell do you have more agrees than disagrees?
Wave after Wave of 5 enemies at once.. YAWN..
... but i LOL'D
jealous sony fanboys double yawn
They can say what they like. Hmmm, would I rather play Gears of War 2 on the 360 or Resistance 2 on the PS3? That's like asking whether I'd like a 3-course meal or food from a garbage bin - Resistance 2 is the garbage bin.
Desparation runs deep in you trying to justify the purchase of Gears 1.5 Don't feel bad I am sure Banjo Kazooie will be a AAA.. ooops errr nevermind.
It`s a lot easier to justify one of the most badass, and highly acclaimed games in recent times. Resistance is a different story. How are you going to defend a game that has less players, and lower scores? "bbbbbut 60 players!" LOL! Gimme a break, gears wipes it`s ass with resistance.
Re....sist.. what? What's that game? I never heard of a game with that name... Must be something that's not very good... Hmmm... Re...sist... or? Resistor? Is that the name? Close enough, it's not important.
But the action looks a little dry IMO.
lol, you're the first comment to say anything negative about Gears in this article and you're the only one that has 4 agrees. All the other comments saying "innsaaaannneeeee" get 2 disagrees and no agrees. Way to show your fanboyism N4G.
Having 2-3 enemies at a time is hardly a "Horde" IMO....hopefuly it gets more and more and more enemies at a time as the level goes up?
I've said it before and I'll say it again, all you have to do to get bubbles on this site, is to kiss @ss to the nearest sony fanboy above or below you.
There are 50 waves, so of course it's going to get tough as the hordes come.
You guys are funny. Honestly, you guys are really funny. Guys coming at you in waves of 2.......that's riveting....... FYI, I'll be lining up at midnight just like the rest of you. This game is going to kill, but that video......horrible showcase.
I have to agree with SIX, i cant wait for gears2, but that video should never have been released, if thats what the horde game mode is really like then it looks a lot more slow paced than I expected.
Do they use super glue to stitch those pieces of food together, for each character model..?
This is exactly the type of gametype that I wish was in every single action oriented game. Just you and some buddies against waves of enemies.
I guess you mean on the 360, because R2 has it and its 10 times more then this video and you need 8 people, you can still die easily. If you like that kind of stuff and you have a PS3 check it out you will be more then satisfied Note: This looks awesome because of TPS fighting, a different perspective then FPS of course, I am not putting down Gears of War 2 in anyway if I had a 360 I would definitely get this and part 1, but I am just informing you there is another game like this that has this mode and does it with droves and droves of enemies and if you do have a PS3 you can get both games but if you like the friends versus hordes of enemies this is just another option
This is Gears2 response to Resistance 2 8 co-op??? Gears might be a good game, but Horde mode is nothing to brag about. There only two or three enemies on the screen, whereas resistance has at least 30 Chimera on screen. And not to mention the the teamwork involved in Resistance. You have to be very dependent in order to survive in 8 co-op. I cant say the same about Horde mode. Horde Mode is just more of a "im on my own, i dont need my buddies" experience. It looks fun tho. My roomate Preordered this game. And im just as excited to play this game just as you guys are.
I take it you haven't seen any footage at waves 40+ because it takes quite a bit of teamwork to block off certain areas and bottleneck enemies into one area. It takes a bit of teamwork to revive someone when they're getting swarmed. It's only about 2-3 enemies at the lower levels... there's 50 waves. If anything, Resistance 2 8 person co-op doesn't have teamwork because you're running around shooting aimlessly at Chimera left and right, and oh no, there's a boss. Time to strafe side to side while blasting rocket launchers and grenades at it! Teamwork my ass. FPSes are nowhere close a TPS so I don't see your argument.
Ive seen GeOW2 lvl 50 horde gameplay and there's never more than 6-7 enemies on the screen at once... http://www.youtube.com/watc... The game looks real fun, im not saying its bad, just responsing.
Resistance 2's graphics and sound suck. this is a gears of war 2 video. we don't care. now get lost.
more like candy ass. Still a sweet game.
I can't even begin to count the amount of hours I spent playing GOW1, and from what I have read GOW2 is even better! Nov.7th can't come fast enough...
Yeah always loved this game, wish I had a 360 but that's one of the perks of having the system, 360 owners enjoy!!!! =)
I think it's a great mode, but it's no horde. And to not be viewed as a fan boy, just look at Left 4 Dead gameplay in their survival mode to see what a horde mode is. Also look at Resistance 2, CoD5 with their zombie survival mode, and so on. But leave it to Cliffy to call this game one with "epic award winning story telling", and everything is 5Xs as badas$, and to call this mode "Horde" mode. This guy makes awesome games, but not in the areas he thinks. Gears 2 has the best gritty combat for what it offers, but this mode compared to Left4Dead is bland and S L O W. If you want to look up the def, they basically say a horde is a teeming crowd or throng : swarm... This is more of a ghost town.
This game Chainsaws + CurbStomps Resistance 1.3!! Resistance Weapons dont have any recoil at all, just aim and shoot. No SKILL involved!! My 10 year old niece was flying thru the game on the HARDEST mode!! Enjoy your PS1 game!! GRAPHICS ARE A JOKE!! IS this what you SONYDROIDS mean when you say.. "Only possible on PS3!!" "Its teh C3LL!!" "BLu-RAY!!" HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHA!!!1
But that didnt look like a horde of enemies..
I guess you haven't played Gears 1 then, as the the enemies in the game are refered to as the locust HORDE. If you had 50 locusts coming at you at once, you wouldn't get past Wave 1. Thus, the enemies come in Waves, increasing in difficulty with every wave. Every site reviewing Gears 2 has said the Horde mode is one of the sweetest modes in the game. Also, this was just 2 guys. Horde mode is supposed to scale to the amount of players (up to 5) = supposedly, with 5 players you can have a max of 30 enemies at one time. Frankly, all the Horde reviews Ive read say it's very challenging on casual, I can't imagine going to Wave 50 on Insane.
Hard to fault the graphics and presentation of Gears...Looks great. Two things though: 1. It doesn't look CO OP enough. It's a couple dudes running around in the place shooting at things. They aren't depending on one another directly, and they aren't actually -co operating-...? The interaction is lacking. 2. This is probably the fifth or sixth Horde-mode gameplay video I've seen. And I don't recall seeing more than about FOUR enemies at the most on the screen. I keep seeing people say "oh but it's only wave 1", but I've seen higher wave videos too, including wave 50, and there wasn't much there either. Anyone got a video that shows otherwise? If not, I think the Horde nothing being a horde criticisms were rather valid.
they're on wave 7 out of 50 on normal difficulty. total lightweights.
uh huh... so is there a video somewhere of a higher wave with a lot of enemies?
So pumped for this game, other than snowboard season starting this weekend this is what I am most excited about.
Sorry for my ignorance,but can anyone tell me if Horde mode has more than 1 map? I know of the 50 waves,but is that for 1 map,or are their more maps and 50 waves for each.Thanks .... Either way,game looks great.This and LBP is almost too good to be true...
You can play Horde on any MP map.
Bubbles for you Lord Vader,thanks for the help...
The sound is really sweet. hearing a giant boomer coming at you with a butcher's knife saying, "HUNGER" is really badass. BTW, does anyone know if Horde will work with system link? that was my favorite part about gears of war.
did they put it on easy or something? 2 guys and they kill everything in a couple shots, it better be set to easy.
