Jonathan Marx- Gears of War 2 (GoW 2) is one of the most refined games I've ever played. The shiny visuals, varied game modes, load of multiplayer options, and near-perfect cover system make this title truly standout.
Only blind ignorant fools want vote Gears of War 2 as a GOTY 08.
My friend who owns an Xbox says he's gonna get it later because it's basically the same as the first one. He's getting Mirror's Edge instead
"Only blind ignorant fools want vote Gears of War 2 as a GOTY 08." i dont get it... do Xbox fans enjoy self-owning or something?
He probably also voted for McCain too didn't he?
I'm 99% sure LBP is going to be this years GOTY. It's does something that hasn't been seen before and it does it well.
Wtf does this article have to do with that baby poo game LBP GTFO plus this game destroys the lame rip off of halo resistance is.
And just watch how this game sells.....pretty sad really trying to call it gears of war 1.5 with different ways to play the game and better enviorments......hell we even get to download free upgraded maps...I am picking this up tonight and will accept any n4g players to play with....hit me up on xbox live and lets enjoy one of the contenders for goty. lbp wins game of the year...congradulations on that..but can you play it online on the first week of release? oh and also...mods can kick out people in the gamerzone for speaking their minds but let idiots like this even exist... http://www.n4g.com/up/64154... simply ridiculous.
perfect, almost ready to kick some locutus ass
You won't find 'locutus' in this game, but you might find 'locusts'
^^ lolol, how funny would it be, i can see it now - cutscene starts, see a red lazer blocking the view, on walks locutus, final boss. would be the best boss like lol.
ups sorry, locusts in spanish is "locutus"
Am i weird for having zero interest in this game? Its like... yeah, its GeoW2, but who gives a ****? and if anybody can see my Family Guy reference, you get a bubble!
good score... funny..this is the only review ive seen so far ..that gives Gears Graphics a 4.4 and Resistance a 4.8 i think ..both games look great ... but after reading all the reviews saying gears looks better ..saying that R2 graphics are much better than gears 2 ..is just dumb
You act like youve played either one. THAT is dumb.
something like 6 websites have already said the other way around IGN and 1up are in there as well.
no ..i haven't ..but i can read the reviews ..this time im not judging by my self....

I've played both of them. PAX this year was awesome!
You realize there is more to graphics then just 'zomg hirez textures' right? Both have different art styles (which is subjective in reviewing) as well as different technical focus. I'd say both games look damn good, but have a couple visual niggles in different areas. I don't see a need to compare them since they are different genres frankly.
Another review (NZgamer) that reviewed both and scored a little higher R2 overall. However if you look at the details of scoring, you will notice that GOW2 has a higher mark (9.5 against 9). I think that just gives an idea of the reasoning. Overall R2 might be a better value as it has a more substantial experience in terms of hours of game play compared to Gears. Both seem to be intense games with some wow factor but I'm sure GOW2 is probably more consistent in this regards because of the structure of the levels and the game with more closed areas or directed game play (like the vehicle /ride sections). Whereas R2 is trying to display bigger scenery with long vistas and a substantial number of enemies so there is a trade off. No battle here, both games are enjoyable and worthy of a buy. And if you have both consoles you get a double wamy. Don`t have an Xbox but if I had, I probably would get GOW 2 as well and others in the same scenario would do. However I can`t quite justify buying an Xbox for one game (particularly). as for the GOTY claims, I think its all a bit rubbish, the one game that I say standing out in terms of critical acclaim and innovation....well you know it, no need to repeat the 3 Big letters. That`s my bet but I'm pretty sure it is going to be the case. ....damn...too many games to get and not enough money and time !
Gears has low-res textures but they hide it well. So well that it looks good.
playing gears 2 and just as expected its better than the first in everyway but the improvements are not that great. The textures are more detailed,better lighting and better effects imo. The best improvement however is the story. Its a much better ride however the ending still suck. There are some pretty good twist along the way. No more wall hugging and horde mode is fun. My honest score. A 9.25
the site is mainly a website that submits cheats but they have a review section in it as well.
It was a joke.
@2. I think its obvious that Gears graphics are "better" but Resistance has great scale. Both are great looking games.
Gears of War 2 is supposed to be the xbox360's best looking game, and it is easily outdone graphic wise by Killzone 2. Just saying. And BTW graphics doesn;t make one game better than the other, IGN gave the same score to both R2 and Gears.
Alan Wake looks better than Killzone 2; You see what I did there? Gears is already out, KZ2 will be released next year so don't compare both games. Btw, if you really feel you have to compare both games, don't forget to mention the fact that KZ2 had more than 4 YEARS of development, which is HUGE for a FPS!
you need glasses ,Heavy Rain kills Alan Wake .
"gears is already out""killzone 2 coming out next year so dont compare the two" uhh wtf? that doesnt mean anything, hes comparing gears' final build and killzone in this stage, that has nothing to do, now if it were months into the future, then you could make that comment, and had a little sense.
Tonight is THE night...
Is a Silly Little BoT
I can't see what mr ps3 says but im sure it is quite lame as allways
For those who don't already know BB is opening at midnight to launch Gears, here is the link: http://www.bestbuy.ca/gow2/...
Yes I know, Canada FTW!
another great review for the must own shooter of the year..
Did you just say that AlanA look better than KZ2 hahahahahah I have seen the demo they have in youtube n yes the game looks good but that was just a pc vercion demo n even at that level heavy rain look much better, I'm in the killzone beta I was on the privite n know I'm on the open beta the privete beta I give it a 9.9 this open beta they inprove on the game play n few other things I give in a 9.98 n if you call yourself a gamer. I hope everone start saving to buy a ps3 killzone2 is the best or I hope you have a friend whit a ps3 I will imagine you 24/7 in his house hahahahaha the game is the best
i prefer seeing three aliens on screen at once. stupid RFOM2 has 40 at a time and that's way to hard and the bosses... don't get me started. 700ft! you've got to be kidding me! keep them to a manageable size in future. stupid Insomniac
I'm playing right now
at Midnight: yes, you're weird.
it's cool to see both systems closely matched in software quality at this point in the console battle........oh,my bad, I have to take this crap over to the gamer zone <..........the nerve of me.
