Bigger, better, more badass. Let's see if the phrase Cliff Bleszinski and Epic used to describe Gears of War 2 holds true ten years later.
A remake on the next Xbox would be awesome
I wouldn't mind that at all, so long as the MP community is still strong
Nah this generation had enough of remasters besides its enhanced on xbox one x
The first two where the best in my opinion they both had a great atmosphere and levels .
Gears 2 was the perfect sequel. Bigger, badder, more badass in every way!
The campaign was fantastic, but I thought the multiplayer was terrible.
Yes and no. Gameplay and levels I 100% agree but the story was a huge step down since you followed Dom around and had to listen to him cry for the majority of the game. I still remember being so awed with my friend as we saw the Riftworm and how massive it was then to go inside it. So fun.
Gears 2 was definitely the best in the series. God, I miss that game. would love to play it again and hope MS give it the same treatment they gave Gears 1 Remaster.
Gears 1 Remaster is actually worst then the original game, full of crazy bugs, so if they do the remake god rid it to be like the first.
Gears 2 was my most favorite mp game i wish for a ultimate edition for this .
What a difference a decade makes. Gears of War isn’t as highly regarded now as it used to be
That's goes to show you how new IPs are always coming on strong and how gamers evolve overtime. I mean the same can be said for Metal Gear, Gran Turismo, Street Fighter, Fable...lots of games really. The beauty is that, these IPs have the opportunity to regain popularity with every new game released if done right. Look at God of War...this latest version reinvented itself and that paid off big time. Its now more popular than I think any of the pervious installments in the series ever was. In the end...gamers want good games to play...no reason why Gears 5 can improve the franchise current standing in the industry if done right...hopefully The Coalition has learned a lot since Gears 4 and they craft a banger.
It is because MS don’t push it out yearly lile COD.
"Bigger, better, more badass." I'm not sure about the "better" ESPECIALLY in respects to the inconsistent competitive online. People seem to have a fuzzy memory about how bad that aspect was back then. I would've dropped it entirely were it not for me picking up a used copy ~2 weeks before the Snowblind Map Pack released (along with solid update for online issues). This should also be a reunion of critics turning a blind eye to fundamental flaws which weren't rectified until months later.
Hello, and thanks for the feedback. I do go into how messy the online was at launch since I couldn't play a new game when I replayed it before I wrote this. I do mention how bad they messed up on the shotgun, the slower movement, and how for me it was the worst iteration of the MP due to all the issues. But all and all with the campaign, horde, and after the MP updates it was and still is an amazing game.
Hey, Jawes. I didn't mean for that to be direct feedback to the article when typing that (as I didn't read it at the time). I just saw the CliffyB quote and that made me want to step on my soapbox in regards to how under-discussed those MP launch issues tend to be. Pre-update, it was the most troublesome I've had with a Xbox exclusive until Halo: MCC took the cake. Having seen this comment, I do appreciate you guys being thorough in remembering GoW2's blemishes and bright spots.
The best Gears of War game ever.
