Jack black is a moron, all his movies suck. This game to me is just like god of war with some demons and rock metal

gamesR4fun5107d ago (Edited 5107d ago )

stop pimping jack dudes in the game we know but love him or hate em dont matter its the game we want ta see.
64 square miles of warped heavy metal fantasy ours ta play in. The onlines RTS meets tp action! omg I got wood for it. Serious the lump in my pants just wont go down after i heard it was originally planed has an online only game.Look im trying to find stuff i can sell just so i get this and Uncharted2 cause i just don't want to choose between em. Tim your a god sell the game not just the cast.

Jack man your cool but here's my two bits just b you. Save Eddie for the game n dont talk gears if u never played online. Cause seriously if your gonna trash gears onlines the way ta do it well that and the story but the co-op was rock solid. (pun intended)

ps Tim why no reviews yet???

ZombieAutopsy5107d ago

i really dont see how brutal legend is like god of war...besides the fact that you kill things.

Noob5106d ago

This game is nothing like god of war at all.

XiaoSet5106d ago

I agree with OP, this game is going to suck balls.
All it focuses around is heavy metal and brutal killings, oh what fun? Barbarians!

Jack Black is an idiot.

Yep. Still love him though.

vShinobi5107d ago

lol wow dissing Gears, I still don't like this guy

DiffusionE5107d ago

He's sometimes funny and sometimes flatout annoying. But this game isn't about him, it's about heavy metal. So yeah, it does look awesome. I wonder what songs they'll be using in-game....

^^^ Beat me to it. It's pretty impressive to me, they're putting in bands like Carcass and Emperor. So cool. Was disappointed that Dio left the game though. I would have loved to see what character Dio was gonna play, and hear some Holy Diver goodness.

Also, kind of surprised there's no Opeth, and I would have liked to hear see Blind Guardian on there too, especially since their appearance as both characters and music in Sacred 2.

ZombieAutopsy5107d ago

The one band i was truly suprised wasnt in the game is Death.

Kroganwrex5107d ago

The last boss on gears 2 is killed from a helicopter using hammer of dawns, what the hell is he talking about?

Ranking The Gears Of War Games From Worst To Best

The Gears of War series has been a consistent deliverer of quality for Xbox, but which games are the best?

Read Full Story >>
KicksnSnares469d ago

Gears of War is my favorite video game franchise, and the Locust is my all-time favorite faction.

My rank list:
1. Gears of War 2
2. Gears of War 3
3. Gears of War 1
4. Gears of War 4
5. Gears of War 5
6. Gears of War Judgment (No Locust in multiplayer was a disgrace)

DeusFever468d ago

Agree 100% with this ranking. The campaign in Gears of War 2 is among the most fun campaigns ever made. It’s been downhill from there.

Zombieburger638468d ago

I’d say gears 2 and 3 are pretty even. I absolutely loved both of them.

darthv72469d ago

2 is still my favorite but 5 is also up there (for me). Then I'd say 1, 3, 4 and Judgement. Tactics isnt the same type of game, so it seems odd to rank it among TPS when its a strategy game. So I make that one all its own. Pretty fun game too.

Jericho1337469d ago

The first is and has always been the best one imo - the story, the levels, the set pieces, the soundtrack - as close to perfect as a campaign can get.

I’d say the series had been on a continual downhill slide until 5.

Om4ever468d ago

Naaaan ... 2 is the best by far

MadLad469d ago


I love the series as a whole, but 4 was pretty by the numbers, and Judgement was just ok.

LoveSpuds469d ago

I played them all since picking up a Series X about 7 months ago. Personally, I don't think time has been kind to the earlier games and they feel very slow and repetitive to play. Whilst the newer games may be prettier, they stick with the original gameplay mechanics too much in my view so as a whole series of titles, I think they are pretty average games.

Not to say they weren't fun and I have a lot of nostalgia for 1 and 2, I just think there are far better action games out there.
