Gears Of War 2 on Xbox 360 - Just another shooter?

Gamer.Blorge Writes:

"Microsoft clearly has high hopes for Gears Of War 2. With no new Halo game confirmed, and one highly unlikely on the Xbox 360, Gears is the one new exclusive shooter that could draw in gamers and make them purchase an Xbox 360 this holiday season. Along with the new Xbox Live Experience and the lower prices, this game is the third element in the unholy trinity Microsoft hopes will punish the PS3.

Gears Of War 2 does have the capacity to shift units but my fear is that it's unlikely to capture the casual market in the same way LittleBigPlanet, Sony's great hope this Christmas, undoubtedly will. As impressive a game as Gears 2 may be, it is still just another shoot-em-up, a genre of game that the Xbox 360 is already blessed with an abundance of."

But its the best damn shooter ive played in years. Does this mean Resistance is just another shooter. Sounds like Flamebait garbage to me.

Gears is made for the hardcore not the casual gamer. This article is the FAIL!

People who are looking to buy systems this year are looking toward hardcore systems. Anyone who wanted a "family machine" already has a Wii. Why would they want 2 family systems?

Gamers who are looking for alternative gaming solution to their Wii systems, won't be going for the same crap they've had to put up with on the Wii. They'll want something a little more hardcore and indepth, things the Wii lacks.

Pushing Gears2 and Resistance2 will probably be where the money is.

i admit geow 2 is good but a measly 5 to 8 hours campaign and online multiplayer that can't match up to resistance 2. i'll pass it up till they come up with a pc version. which im sure as the sun will come up tomorrow, it will be on pc next year.. count on it.

This is just a blog from some idiot that doesnt know anything about games. "With no new Halo game confirmed, and one highly unlikely on the Xbox 360" Seem this person hasnt even heard of Halo Wars or Halo 3 Recon.

"good but not enough...
i admit geow 2 is good but a measly 5 to 8 hours campaign"

You can't even be serious. It took me probably double that. I played for around 4 hours after the midnight launch, then practically all day Friday, and then finally knocked out the last couple hours today.

Five to eight hour campaign my *ss. LMFAO, GTFO with that nonsense.

Rofflecopter3361d ago

no idea how it took you 16 hours.. its longer than the first, but it was short. the story is so much better this time around though. i just started the resistance campaign too and i can honestly say that they are both incredible and NEITHER are "just another shooter"

pavarotti3361d ago

is a definate sony fan-site, and i'm sure is somehow affiliated to one of the many sony fanboys that dwell on this very very sad site. along with loot ninja, these sites leech hits from the vey sad n4g crowd by writing anti-xbox material...but thats what gets hits from sony fanboy infested n4g.

STICKzophrenic3360d ago

Maybe the difficulty? I set it on Hardcore. I dunno.

I agree completely, Gears 2 is awesome! Definitely flamebait. GOW2 campaign is unbelievable and MP is even more fun! GOY, easily!

Simon_Brezhnev3361d ago

next week yall fanboys gonna say the samething about left 4 dead oh thats the best and blah blah blah

RoarrrUK3361d ago

It's a sorry situation but you're entirely correct

littletad3361d ago

Is a little different...

ThanatosDMC3361d ago

People should play Zombie Master mod for Half Life 2 or CS: Source before picking up Left 4 Dead on steam. They'll be drooling for more zombies.

BanjoKazooieFTW3361d ago

Gears of war 2 is one of the best shooters i've ever played; it's definately NOT just another shooter. The gameplay, story and graphics are all unique to the genre.

DiabloRising3361d ago (Edited 3361d ago )

It's definitely a great, great action game... but I don't see anything unique about the 3 things you mentioned. What it does do, is mix them together to form a solid and cohesive package however.

This story is just silly as Gears is one of the stronger new IPs that hit this generation, and the sequel is poised to do well. The only thing that may hold it back is there are a LOT of titles on the market this winter for the 360 and PS3, and also an economic crisis.

Arsenal4Ever3361d ago

Gears 2 is pretty good actually. Got a tad too much blood though.

Breakfast3361d ago (Edited 3361d ago )

Who wouldve thought youd be cutting arteries, with your chainsaw...lol

:)

Horny3361d ago

you can take of blood, gore, and foul language in the options menu, personally all that stuff is what like about it. Thats what sets it apart from other shooters. I love blowing heads of with the longshot or chainsawing locusts.

Covenant3361d ago

That level was the epitome of gross. I felt slimy just playing it.

iggypop1233361d ago

blood? too much story for me. who the hell cares about who is dying or is missing. just release more enemies for me snipe already!
