Wow this game looks exceptional. Much more natural looking, better lighting, better shadows, smooth geometry for the character models.. looks like a completely new engine even if it isn't. Maybe the best looking console game I've seen so far. After doing without one for several months I'm so glad I repurchased a 360 recently.

Nothing's really spoilt. It's pretty early on in the game and nothing mega story-wise is revealed.

But still, spoilers are spoilers.

Its looks better for sure, and gears2 already looked amaizing.

Look stunning, if it wasnt for Forza 4, i would say this is the new benchmark for console graphics!

Wow! Graphics are stunning! Seems to be up there with Crysis 2 on 360 and Uncharted 2/3 on PS3.

And the female is voiced by the Hot voice of Cloe (Claudia Black) from Uncharted 2. At least, it sounds just like her...

maybe technically, but this is such a borefest on my eyes... Yawn.

Not that I think Crysis 2 is less stereotypic, but at least Uncharted is just sporting a creativity and playfulness with the media that both Crysis and Gears just doesn't have.

amazing what you can do when you put in shoddy AI and shoddy animation..
Hell the ai in Halo:CE is better than the gears of war "whack a mole"
texture wise and the architecture is fantastic, character models are lovelly, but in chaos, it just turns to shit.. well shit been a bit harsh.

Benchmark? no, fantastic game? yes.

Actually all the hands-on says gears3 runs smooth as butter even in chaos.

Hehe, yeah - I know that is unthinkable ;-)

But actually I also own a X360. I played the first Gears through but skipped the second. I 'might' get Gears3 if the reviews are stellar.

Sad that they've been sitting on this game for 2 years now... Looks great, but its been done and delayed for 2 years...MS has only this as it's exclusive.

Epic is awesome

It's a fair point though if you examine both games and how their combat differs. Gears can feel whack a mole at times - Gears2 address this a little i think i'm right in saying. I like how Gears feels when you're impacting your rounds on enemy and i'd say the game has more punch overall like this- a bit like how Halo1 also has that. Gears has something i just like very much about the combat, but it would be a lie to say it's as accompished as Halo games in some areas- most games don't tend to be actually

Halo games are generally more dynamic resulting in a more sophisticated action i think. I like them both though for different reasons

I've been playing a lot of ODST lately and it now ranks as my second fave in the series. It's was always a good albeit disapointing game but i'm now seeing it for something much better than that

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (4 Hours ago)
