There have been a lot of great games in the Gears of War series but which one is the best overall?
Gears 2 was always my fave great scene where Dom finds his wife only to watch her die and faces the hard choice of ending her suffering. Gears 3 was ok not as good as 2 Dom's death just felt rushed not as emotional when he found his wife. Judgement was meh Gears 4 was also meh still gotta work on Gears 5.
Yeh it was really emotional finding out Dom's wife was dead... You know, the wife of this quiet side character who had been mentioned like once during the entire first game. I bet you cried watching the Fast and Furious story unfold too right?
Gears 1 has the best campaign. Gears 2 has the best multiplayer maps. Gears 3 was the pinnacle for Gears and Epic. I've been playing Gears 3 on the X and its a work of art, the online portion anyway. The One X just muscles that game into stable frame rates and smoothes out the edges Ive noticed. I hope we get a remaster of Gears 2 and 3 for the Series X for sure. Gears Judgement brought Overrun to the table which is FANTASTIC!!!
Nah sorry but hes right, dom having to kill his wife after all that time looking for her, right in the feels man.
I have to say from your comment, I don't know if I believe you played through the game, she's mentioned far more than once, it's his (Dom's) whole motivation, he brings it up to Marcus several times, and then chastises him for not being outright willing to help him the way dom was willing to help Marcus find his father. (just a refresher for you there) 😉👍
lol you can't really expect anyone to care that much about a character who isn't at all fleshed out, who is pining over his wife which you never actually see. Zero character development = hard to give a shit. The stupid feminist Gears 5, giving it that stupid short form name, and a female character who would never in a billion years be able to perform the physical feats she does, was just a cheesy "Hey women are strong too" pandering to the SJW crowd. Do they not know who their audience is? It's 99.992% male. If you're going to write good female characters write them like Ripley from Aliens, she wasn't physically stronger than all the men, she was bad ass in her attitude and gumption. That's good writing. Gears 5 is lazy pandering writing.
i actually cracked up at that scene; the acting was so bad.
a number of fans actually want Gears 2 to be remade as well. with a lot more impactfull mo-cap and writing. Gears 2 was great but it can use a remake i think.
I have to say, I enjoyed judgment's campaign as much as any of them, I thought that was very well done. It was the multiplayer (ALL aspects of it) that just sucked... I remember trying to play through it, and just yelling out with my friends "why?! why the hell did you do these things?!, you had a great formula and now you do this! I could see why rod Ferguson and Cliff really distanced themselves from that title if I'm not mistaken they left the studio on or about the time it launched. I know that after all the disappointments cliffs had with his games, that he sent Microsoft a couple of "feelers" letting them know he was willing to consult and work with them on the gears franchise ( he wouldn't go back full time, but he definitely be willing to have Input) they'd be foolish at this point if they don't take him up on it, gears is not going in a good direction. at least, IMHO
The series died after Gears 1. It could've been so much more.
Lol no. Gears 1 was really good but all the other games have been better besides Judgement/4. Controls are clunky af, barely any character development, very repetitive with lack of variety in gameplay. Dumbass AI teammates.
Not even close. Hears 2 and 3 were better than the original.
Gears 1 was all about the gameplay, story second. (still good, ultimate edition improves on it) all of the other games after had better character depth. more emotion.
Gears 1 had the best campaign, but Gears 3 was the best overall package, with the best horde mode.
I have to agrree.
Gears 2, 3, and 5 are my favorite in that order. *edit* I just looked at their order after I posted this and it matches mine.
The first gears was great. It really pushed the envelope for graphics. Over time i began to feel the movement is restrictive. Multiplayer became a shotgun fest. People running at you while hammering them with your lancer only to one shot you with a shotgun.
That shotgun was too op. Hated it.
personally I thought it was three. they had all engines firing, all of the systems and gameplay nuances had been updated and fidgeted with and they had all that extra time to polish it. playing through with three friends with the difficulty cranked all the way up was awesome, one of my best memories of co-op gaming yet. other than that of course I love the first two but I like 4's online co-op multiplayer the best, the way it was done it was handled very well. it took them awhile to get it right with the balance, but I like the map rotation and the voting system, it's perfect. I think gears five's campaign is highly overrated, it was good, it's a beautiful looking game but I didn't find it any better than four, and as far as being a co-op player, the co-op multiplayer isn't very good.
This series is getting bad release by release ... because it's shit
Who let the Pony out?
Gears of War 3 as the best enemies and Gears 5 is second. Gears of War 2 as the best campaign, Gears of War 3 is second and Gears 5 next. Gears of War 2 as the best atmosphere, Gears of War 1 is second and Gears 3 next. Gears 5 as the best gameplay, Judgement is second and Gears of War 3 is next. Gears 5 as the best graphics, Gears of War 3 is second, and Gears of War 4 is next. All in all the Gears of War 4 is the worse because it as the worse enemies ever, worse chars ever, next is Gears 1 because it's just too outdated, and the Ultimate version is worse then the original much worse, Judgement as refined Gameplay, very good dificult levels and great graphics and sound, but the campaign was just very weak. With that said: Gears of War 3 Gears of War 2 Gears of War 5 Gears of War Judgement Gears of War 1 Gears of War 4 To me that's how it rolls out.
I hate to say it, but post cliffy b gears games have not been great. Gears 3 is my favorite but gears one was the first true next gen title of the 360/ps3 Generation.
I wouldn't say 4 was the worse, it beats 1 and Judgement imo. 1 is good but looking back it suffers and though Judgement has excellent graphics for it's time the episodic "Trial" structure didn't work very well and I never cared about any of the characters. My list would be: 1. Gears 5 2. Gears of War 3 3. Gears of War 2 4. Gears of War 4 5. Judgement 6. Gears of War 1 My second and third games could be swapped around but that is my basic rankings.
