I never thought this game would be any good at all, but this video looks kind of nice. Maybe i'll have to check this one out.

looks kinda like evey other shooter out there. but does indeed look OK, not sure if it's gonna stand up well when you have games like assassins creed and mass effect coming around the same time. but we'll see, probably rent it if anything. when they where talking about the infected humans, i thought they where gonna say "those are called 'the flood'" they may as well be.

Is it me or does the game seem more polished, from aiming, from animation, engine, bullet animation...etc.

The concept artist for this game is just great though, very cool art, colors, enemies...etc.

But yeah I won't have time to play any other game when Mass Effect and Assassins Creed is out, howver, I need a FPS game soon, so I have to see which one it is.
And it needs to have the sci-fi setting of course :)

Wow, this is kinda of a shocker, looks way better than the demo. I'm definately approaching this one with an open mind. I'm pretty sure i'll be buying this as i am just a big sucker for huge alien bosses.

Holy crap this looks about 10x better than the demo... from the scale to the textures on things like the asphalt to the gun models and movement to the framerate and motion blur... as well as the ENEMIES, this went from a "maybe rent" to buying day one for me personally.

No you are not alone.

I did say that it looks different of the demo we played.

Obviously that was a VERY old built of the game and was a teaser...but as the progress went one they fixed the buggs, clicthes, added motion blur...etc. refined it quite alot.

This game needs a new demo again, which I am sure they will release.

About the game

    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (1 Hour ago)

    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (2 Hours ago)

    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (4 Hours ago)
