that game definitely came a long way in a very short period of time, especially the multiplayer

Since I just got a 360 last week, I finally put this game in. Shame I didn't get the game when the graphics were king (plus UTIII left a bad taste in my mouth, and it looks somewhat similar) but this game is pretty damn fun ...

other than the fact that my bot/partner is a bumbling idiot who always gets me killed!!!!! Why when I press regroup he says ok but refuses to frackign regroup! And you idiot, stay out of the freaking dark!

It would be interesting to see people experiment around with it, achieving some really awesome and unique lighting effects that could be shared with everyone!

I liked the presets in Gears 1, but I thought they should have kept that in from seeing Beta footage! Who knows Gears 2 might have it! :D The lighting looks great anyway it won't matter too much.

You can still change the lighting and shadows, it's just combined into one feature with presets.

If you watch the video, I believe you'll see that this goes pretty far beyond what could be done on the retai, unless I somehow missed a large section of the options menu. I know they had the default, vivid, etc, but nothing like the video has.
