I like it. it's time to go back in

Nah, it wasn't bad, but everything felt a bit rushed. Far from as good as the Mad World trailer that they promoted the original Gears of War with.

Love it, i thought there were some dark overtones there between Dom and Marcus at the end, hmmmm i wonder?
Commented on 2008-10-24 19:59:34
Fantastic!

It's not as good, but the Mad World commercial was pretty much the best vigeo game ad ever (at lest among the ones I've seen), so it's not a negative IMO. It definitely sets a quite depressing mood, hopefully the game will be able to sustain that.

Shows whoever responsible for GoW2 ad is a one trick pony- the first one was totally unexpected but it seems like no one even put an iota of thoughts (except for the song which was probably heard while watching Little Miss Sunshine). They could at least try to make it surprisingly different from the first but I guess it's just safer and easier to recycle the same concept.
Commented on 2008-10-24 20:58:19
Ugh, that "now 199" voice at the end of the commercial totally ruins it. Get a better version Gamersyde!
Commented on 2008-10-24 21:20:00
Brilliant AD!! they have done it again :)
Commented on 2008-10-24 23:38:34
Once again a good song, and once again a horrible ad. I'm against using licensed music in games, period, but it's even worse when the song doesn't even go with the game.

Well, now you mention it.^^

I guess it's the same thing like it was with "Mad World", I'd simply start liking every song when it'd be linked to a Gears ad. :D
Commented on 2008-10-25 02:34:02
I never really like sci-fi but this ad changed my mind :o I must try this one out!

I played like 1 level of the first one, didn't really like it but this one looks to be a golden hit!

Well, the second one will most likely play out very similar to the first one. Sorry to say, but if you didn't like the first one, chances are you will not like the second one either.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (2 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (2 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (3 Hours ago)

    docLEXfisti Snatcher was awesome, played it on the European Mega CD (5 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (6 Hours ago)
