SegmentNext - "Gears of War 3 looks set to fill the gaps left by rather awesome but shallow Gears of War 2".
its sad when certain people try to start flame wars.
I look forward to seeing what this game has to offer. I enjoyed the other two, but I did not really like how clunky it seemed at times. Looks like they have done away with all that. So I am very much looking forward to the game.
get why you guys are bashing the guy. I found the multiplayer atrocious with all the wall bouncing and lagginess but the upside to the gmaes were the coop and horde mode (which I didn't really play much) If the game wasn't coop I doubt I'd even consider playing the game. I don't know why shooters are abandoning coop campaigns nowadays. This is one of the reasons why I'm highly anticipating playing KZ3 with my bro.
And a potentially great 360 comment section is destroyed before its starts yet again...
while i hope this game is good, it has to redeem itself for the train wreck known as gears 2.
@Warprincess116 do you have an 360. cuz your statement is so wrong. trust me the game isn't slow. not a fanboy. I have an ps3 and 360
I thought Gears 2 was a slight improvement in graphics and the storyline was much better then Gears 1, but I didn't get addicted to the mulitplayer like I did with Gears 1. Gears 3 is three years in the making and from the sounds of it everything is improved and its most likely going to be my GOTY. Midnight launch copy for me, for sure. It's going to be fun watching the comparisons on gaming sites and flame wars on N4G when Gears3 and Uncharted3 go head to head this Fall.
nice picture and true words
The graphics on the maps are better in Gears two. The graphics on the characters are better in one. Just look at the Locust Chain mail... it has bump mapping... two doesn't! (must view on HD TV!) Glitch of War 2 dumb-down the graphics on the characters to get 5 on 5.... and they dumb-down the frames rates to make it work (1,2,3). Unreal engine only works if you lower the frame rate... low frame rates is not ideal for a shooter game.
Not all the maps look good in Gears 2, mainly the snow levels, and I'm not impressed with the snow on characters in any game. Actually, it was the snow maps that made the overall game look...not so good. But that, in my opinion, was the only thing that didn't look good. As far as dumbing down the graphics for 5vs5, you need only look at the Jacinto multiplayer map to see that that isn't true. Jacinto was my favorite map because that's were Gear's 2 graphics really shined. Gears 3 is an overall different animal...
Master Chief isnt steroid guy!
Did they just say that "all online games will be dedicated severs run by Microsoft". That is just Gears 3 right?
This game is going to be amazing. In my top 3 most anticipated 2011 games. -Graphics are a big improvement on Gears 2 -Finally conclude the trilogy -Even bigger battles and setpieces -Badass new weapons and enemies -New maps that are also dynamic (the environment changes while you play) -4 player XBL co-op -Lots of new multiplayer modes -Online XP system where you can customize weapons and armor -BEAST mode which looks INSANE -Dedicated. Fucking. Servers YES PLEASE.
I absolutely cannot wait for this game. I pre ordered BulletStorm epic edition just to get into this beta. Although BulletStorm looks sick as it is. I remember back when the new consoles were about to be released and I saw Gears of War on the XBox 360 I knew I had to have it and I've never looked back. Such amazing games, especially when looked at against games in the previous gen. Gears was the first true next Gen experience for me and I'm glad it's continued on such a great road.
I agree about the first Gears. It was the first and only game this gen that truly WOWed me. Yes, games came out afterwards that look better, but didn't have that OMG wow effect like the original Gears did.
yea... i remember that moment, and ghost recon too..
i want to play gears beta so bad that i preordered bulletstorm too... the thing is, the single player for bulletstorm looks good and the animations and gameplay looks great but i think its gonna be a rushed game... there is no versus multiplayer? what is that? i feel rushed game. im still gonna get it just for the gears beta still.
its funny that sony fanboys still bitch and moan about Gears 2 being 'broken' online from the start (despite them never actually playing it), and wont accept that its been fixed through numerous updates...............yet they constantly refer to GT5 and its numerous updates to fix what was essentially an unfinished game at launch as 'great' and 'fantastic' and that more developers should do it lol. Gears 2s online, for the last 12 months, has been a COMPLETELY different experience than it was on launch and for its first few months. pretty much every single bug has been ironed out, and pretty much every change that the community wanted has been implemented perfectly. you praise GT5 for fixing things, but bag out Gears 2 for doing the same. i cant wait for gears 3, and i cant wait to get into the beta and give Epic feedback on what needs fixing/changing.
