Visually Impressive Gears of War 3 Gifs

Although Gears of War three is quite a while away from release, not many people have been talking about how good this game really looks. Even though it has a 2011 release date, the game looks visually stunning thus far in these gifs which aren’t even of the single player campaign but rather the mulitplayer...

I've owned Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2, and these gifs are pretty nice looking. To each his own I guess, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

iamnsuperman3108d ago offense but it does sound like your trolling slipping uncharted 2 in their where there is no need really.... i prefer a PS3 over the 360 any day but there was no need really

AndrewRyan3108d ago

The nerve of these people. Every fucking single time there is a exclusive xbox game article, somebody just has to bring up Uncharted 2, or Killzone 3, or even Grand Turismo. I understand if the article is flamebait, but this article is just .GIF's, harmless! No flamebait at all! Yet people always come in trolling and have to ruin the discussion. Danmachine could you have just said "whats visually impressive about these gifs? i don't see it." And not bring up uncharted 2?

I don't own an xbox at all, I am a PC and PS3 guy, however, I really just feel like a jackass to be sharing my favorite console with intolerant moron's like these.

Cenobia3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

...this is getting out of hand.

They're fudging GIFs. :/

Also, wtf is going on in the first one? It looks like some alien animal running around.


ears 3 is the Best looking console exclusive. Period. Point. Blank.

Conloles3108d ago

How can a .gif be visually impressive.

these<-----very well said man. just do what i do and enjoy ya ps3 and never mind these morons dude.

but i agree with u 100% they make all sony/ps3 fans look like idiots. i own both consoles and i prefer ps3, but gears has always been a good looking game with great gameplay, and i love the co-op online, but you know man their will always be these same ones that come into these threads and try to spoil it for everyone.

CWMR3108d ago

Hey danmachine, I don't know what is wrong with your eyes, but that looks as good as anything I have seen in Uncharted 2. I play Uncharted 2 online quite often and I have beaten the story mode twice.

Now, Killzone 3 might end up looking better than this, but right now this looks as good as anything currently available.

Oh boy, here we go.

"Zomg! I have to go into every article that has anything to do with graphics and tell people not to discuss graphics! They must have forgotten about gameplay because they're discussing graphics in a graphics oriented article!"

NinjaAssassin3108d ago

"so lets look at this from technical side...."

"Uncharted 2 has more polygons in character models."
Prove it. As far as I know none of that info has been released about Gears of War 3. In any case, character models are just one aspect of game graphics among many.

"Uncharted 2 has more polygons in the environment."
Prove it. It sure doesn't look like it.

"Uncharted 2 has more details."
No it doesn't. It looks to me like Gears 3 has equal or greater detail in the environment.

"Uncharted 2 has better texture."
Definitely not. Gears of War has always had good textures. Previous Gears of War titles fell a little short of Uncharted 2 because of the lack of dynamic lighting in the first two games, which Gears 3 now has.

"Uncharted 2 has more stuff going on."
No it doesn't. Look at the videos I link to below.

"Uncharted 2 has better explosions or any particle effects."
I don't think so.

"maybe when u say graphics... do u mean the artstyle???"
To me it sounds like you are the one that is being swayed by Naughty Dog's awesome art design for Uncharted 2 and not looking at things objectively.

"cause from technical perspective UC2 does have better graphics."
You haven't supported that claim and I don't agree.

Now let's compare some video footage of both games. I chose the The Lost City from Uncharted 2 because it has the most similar design and look compared to the level that we have footage for from Gears of War 3.

So please tell me where in those videos is there a blatant example of Uncharted 2 having better graphics? Because they look pretty similar to me.

DelbertGrady3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

Why can't you just appreciate that Gears of War 3 looks good without bringing up PS3 exclusives?

I can't wait to play the campaign co-op with a friend. Also, it looks like you will have different attachments to your rifle. If I'm not mistaken that's a bayonette Marcus is using in the 2nd gif.

outrageous3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

Not much to discuss. It was the first next gen game with next gen graphics. It set the bar with the best cover system, the best melee and maybe most importantly, the best graphics and game play this gen.

There is no game that comes even close to the level of detail and chaos that Gears brings to the table...lets take a look.

First up Gears of War 1 E3 2006 IN GAME trailer. This changed A bit blurry, the video, NOT the game, but the greatness shines through...BTW..I haven't seen this clip in years. If this game released tomorrow, it would still be AWESOME. It's all about the game play. Everything is pre-rendered now.

This is the train level from Gears 1. The guy playing loved the shot gun but the chainsaw offers great close quarter mayhem as That level of enemy destruction doesn't exist in any game, even till this day.

Gears Of War 2 continued the greatness with new melee, weapons and enemies...Who remembers the awesome IN GAME reveal trailer.

The AI has to be good for the melee to work...

Now, once again Epic and Gears will be making one last appearance this gen to ride it out in style. As they have always done, they reveal the game at E3 with a live IN GAME trailer of the game..

Gears of War 3 Trailer...

How about the new female Gears Anya's take on that playthrough...

Maybe a little multi-player Beast mode where you play as the enemies...

Gears will have alot more vegetation and rumors of a jungle ( the hollow??? ) like level...Hmmmm...wonder what that might look like...

Did someone say pictures of Gears of War 3...

Gifs are no way to look at the most stunning graphics ever...C'mon now...if you can show me a game where enemies are chopped up into tiny little pieces and splatter everywhere in REAL time...I'd love to see it.

Gears Of War 3 will have 4 player co-op, NEW ENEMIES, new melee, new weapons, new levels, new horde beast mode and a all new multi-player.

mrcash3108d ago

Gears is one of the most detailed games on the market, not only that but the enemies are much larger than in, well since it was brought up Uncharted 2... All the enemies are beautifully detailed as well and gears 3 really looks phenomenal it can stand against the ps3 exclusives and no one would confuse it for a graphically inferior game unless you're in need of glasses.

peowpeow3108d ago

Wtf, I honestly think Gears 3 rivals Uncharted 2 graphics :) I am no fanboy either, can read my comments but you have to admit the new dynamic lighting makes the graphics so much better

God_Of_Epicness3108d ago

That's cos you're wearing SONY fanboy glasses! Take it off before your eyes burn!

BuIIetproofish_3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

You've probably never played Crysis maxed out. If you're going to be obsessed with graphics, at least do it right. UC2 features nothing, but basic human shaped enemies with generic weapons that actually exist. Let's see UC2 do the amount of color and effects Halo: Reach has. Let's see it do the enemy and weapon variety both Halo and Gears of War have, Hell even Killzone has it in single player. Coincidently the less content the better it looks. I'm not saying UC2 is a bad game, I'm saying its not this god of a game people make it out to be.

"Not much to discuss. It was the first next gen game with next gen graphics. It set the bar with the best cover system, the best melee and maybe most importantly, the best graphics and game play this gen."

This is the kind of stuff I dislike about gamers this generation. "It revolutionized some vital game mechanics, but who cares about that. It's all about the graphics!". It comes from almost all gamers, 360 and PS3 alike.

Your argument is quite stupid and void, really. Your argument is pretty much "Uncharted 2 doesn't let me fight space-aliens with alien weaponry; but rather makes me fight other humans using human weaponry." Seriously, you do realize you're a sodding idiot, right?

People on this site need to stop acting like such immature assholes as well. This is not a video about Uncharted, so there is absolutely no reason for anyone to bring it up unless they're just trying to start shit.


In response to the article though; the graphics do look amazing. I like how they're starting to expand the color palette quite a lot, rather than using a gray palette.

IcarusOne3108d ago

@ NinjaAssassin:
Bubbles! Great response. I'm not going to compare Gears and Uncharted based on SD youtube videos, but I will say this: seeing UC2 in action again (I haven't played it since I first beat it) reminded me of HOW MUCH I HATE the way it plays. I know fanboys will say that it moves with "realism" but to me it's just clunky and jerky.

also @ Andrew Ryan:
Standing ovation. Applause, applause, applause. Play for fun. Bubbles to you.

Game looks great..
but for the record, EVERY GAME looks shitty when you look at Gifs..
do people even understand how crappy the resolution is?

judging a game off a gif or a 480i video recording is just kinda......

Either way, just seems like the site needed hits..
Though, I do respect them for not stooping to a Gears 3 vs Uncharted 2 article for the fanboy hits

danmachine3108d ago

overreacted to my comment a bit. it was just my opinion i probably could of left uncharted 2 out, but i thought it was relevent since I have been playing it alot recently and maybe that affected my veiw of these gifs. (plus you cant judge the graphics from a gif)

i think we all need to take things less seriously guys.

enjoy gaming and enjoy your system/systems of choice

THAT is what gaming is all about = playing games.


RonRico3108d ago

is the deal with the ads on this page? Any who, looks like gears 1 with a couple o palm trees. DGMW, I like the gears series but shit. Looks realy similar ta 2. Also, do u know, we're all gonna fu#king die? LoL

AAACE53108d ago

Yeah, those gif images didn't do it justice! I'm glad I have the vid downloaded on my 360.

Looks like a repeat of last year, where other games bypass the holiday to soak up those beginning of the year sales. Either way, we get good games to play for most of the year.


AAACE53108d ago

I loved Uncharted 2, but it's kinda out of place in this article! Uncharted 2 had it's day and gained multiple forms of praise and awards! Don't use the game as a crutch every time something comes out with good graphics. That's what pitiful fanboys do! Ps3 has plenty of good games to be proud of!

Anyway, I have been meaning to pick Uncharted 2 up again. The only thing i'm curious about is, when I traded it in, there were fewer people playing it... like around 2,000 players at any given time!

Have the numbers picked up or have the number of players been declining further?

gamer20103108d ago

Who said that Uncharted 2 is not a masterpiece? Nobody denied that it is an outstanding game.
But let me put this in perspective: say I go into an uncharted 2 article and say how unimpressive it is and how much better Gears of War 3 looks, how tolerant are you going to be then SkullSmasher? Get over yourself, the guy was clearly trolling. Look at all his comments in this article, it is obvious he is a PS3 fanboy.

WLPowell3108d ago

You should try actually playing God of War 3 before making up such nonsense...

muDD3108d ago

This game looks really, really good... By far it is underrated...
And to all of you ps3 sony cultmembers, since u weirdos like to bring up ur exclusives in 360 articles... it does LOOK better than U2. PERIOD! LOOK at e3 demo.

Strikepackage Bravo3108d ago

Gears looks better than Uncharted2, I think you are the one who needs to find a way to "deal" with it.

Boty3108d ago

How can an xbox fanboy say that his game looks better than the other systems game? Especially when their comparing a game that got Game of The Year, Best visuals, Best story, From multiple sources To a game that isn't even out yet?

So far from what I've seen, Uncharted is A LOT better then Gears of War 3. But thats only Because I haven't seen to much of Gears of War 3 yet.

Keltik823108d ago

Lol, it does not. Especially talking in a technical view UC2 is a masterpiece. Let the disagrees pour in please.

avengers19783108d ago

This is one of the only reasons I would even think about getting a 360 again... I mean I won't but Gears 3 does look like a fantastic game, congrats xbox fans you do have a very impressive game coming out.

Jaces3108d ago

Yes, because youtube and online play is the ONLY way to judge which one looks better. -.-

MNicholas3108d ago

The number of hardcore Microsoft fanboys on N4G has more than doubled in the last month. Looks rather fishy.

As for the graphics in this game, I'd love for someone to explain what's so impressive about it.

absolutecarnage3108d ago

Dude come on, Those Graphic look awesome, Give credit where it is due. Stop being so fanboyish and grow up

Mr Logic3108d ago

You are entitled to your opinion and all that, but don't play dumb. You linked videos of Uncharted 2 multiplayer. As amazing as it looks, fact is the singleplayer looks quite a bit better.

absolutecarnage3108d ago

So what!!!! it was compared to multiplayer beast mode for gears 3, so i guess by your reasoning the single player in gears 3 will look better as well

number473108d ago

lol @ this entire thing.
lol @ people judging anything off gifs..
lol @ people bringing up the ps3.
lol @ people forgetting EPIC GAMES NEVER DELIVERS ON THEIR ADVERTISED 'bar raising' VISUALS (important to remember its the unreal engine, not a unique one for the 360)
LoL @ everyone.

NewShadow1013106d ago

this game looks awesome! uncharted 2 has been the graphics king for a while but gears of war 3 might give it a run for its money. i watched videos on both just now and realized that uncharted might be surpassed next year. im not a fanboy i own both consoles. its just that uncharted 2 has been the best looking game so far imo. i never thought gears would be this close. im excited!!

No it does not take one to know one all you have to do is visit 360 news and you can see what they are every day in every article posting flame or trying to abuse the rules like falsely reporting stories.

No it does not take one to know one all you have to do is visit PS3 news and you can see what they are every day in every article posting flame or trying to abuse the rules like falsely reporting stories.

BTW 8 of your last 10 comments are all about PS3 fanboys. Obsession?
