Love the character detail; not to mention the new and stunning environments.

Skorge looks flipping awesome. Although I am sure Marcus will see to it that there isn't much of Skorge left by the end of the game.

Man i did not think they could make it look any better than the first, but i was wrong, very wrong! well done Epic.

is Skorge the main bad guy in this? he (she??) looks seriously cool ( hopefully playable in multiplayer?!?! )

WoOW

Is that in game GFX!!!

A MUST HAVE GAME

by the way do you think there will be GOW 3?

Omg if the game is really looking like this minus the AA then it's still fucking amazing.

The lancer definitely has been enhanced graphically, looks great. Aswell as everything else.

Pretty astounding work, really. That pale green shot in the first set, second from the end, is almost painterly.

Shame it's all being put into a gung-ho sub-Predator plotline with horrendously stereotypical characters. :P

But then it'll be brainless fun. :D

edit - hm, and do I spot a trace of Giger in some of the building design? It's actually a nice touch, for once. Normally people referencing Giger it ends up black and shiny, for once the influence actually works towards creating a nice aesthetic because of *shock* subtlety. Almost art nouveau esque.

No, he's a minor boss as far as I know.

The environments are what really hit home for me there are truely stunning.

Definitely. For a game so highly rated for its graphics, I didn't find the environment textures in Gears of War that great. But Gears of War 2's environments are just... wow.

I really can't wait now.

Wow stunning drools.

Bring on the horde mode :D

That's true. Considering how Gears of War 1 is the game every other game is compared to graphically I found Gears of War clearly disappointing in the environmental detail. Even the texture work is average at best.

Good to see Gears 2 being a big step up in that area. :)

Looks fucking awesome. Really can't wait, the first was an absolute blast in coop.

Yeah there is a "touch" of geiger in the hospital exterior/interior that i cant remember seeing any trace of in the first game, geiger in video games is always a good thing ;)

Well these guys seem to love it so far, there is also a complete GOW2 info blowout on there site.

Is Gears of War 2 any good? Do you see Dom have a little cry? Is it good? Are the derrick bits fun? Is it good? Is it good?

We’ve played it. It blew us away. It’ll blow you away too.

First things first: Gears 2 could very well be the game you’ve been dreaming of for the past two years. It’s Gears of War to the power of ten. The hour we spent playing co-op at a recent press event was practically transcendental: it takes puerile fun so effortlessly to the next level the action games of the past 12 months evaporated in seconds. Sorry for the gush, but we really were knocked out.


Why? After our chat with Cliff Bleszinski, a journalist was talking on the phone to his mate.

“It’s the first one with tons of new stuff, the graphics through the roof and all the shit stripped out,” he said. “It’s more than that, though. You won’t believe it.”

Summed up our thoughts. Find out what it’s like to play the first bit after the link. Obviously there are MASSIVE SPOILERS FROM THIS POINT ON. Read at your peril.


We sit down with the co-op campaign, right from the start. The Microsoft PR tells us each player can select their own difficulty setting: the amount of enemies on-screen remains static, but if you select a harder setting you handicap the amount of damage you take and inflict.

Awesome.
Commented on 2008-09-29 19:16:15
These make the first game look poor in comparison!

Just awesome.
Commented on 2008-09-29 19:22:12
These are dev shots(bullshots) running at a higher than 360 resolution. I have no doubt the game will more or less look like this on my screen at home, but its not going to look this good.

With that said, i'm sure it will once again be the best looking console game when its released. Can't wait. Oh, and i always thought the texture work in the first game was just fantastic. You could get up close to textures and even zoom in, and there was still detail. Kinda like the feeling you got when you first played Halo on the Xbox. Texture went deep

Could be i'm not to sure though as the first bunch of screenshots look very much in-game and mostly taken from the vidocs already released, hopefully they will release some vids later and i will capture some frames and post them here.

As for the second bunch of screens, you could very well be right as they do look a bit too sharp?
Commented on 2008-09-29 19:30:14 In reply to spacemanjupiter
Better than first Gears, for sure. The best and detailed graphics I´ve ever seen in a videogame. Stunning!!

[To spacemanjupiter]You can count on it, we will see that deep textures again in Gears 2. Agree, the first Gears had a very nice and detailed textures, most of them with a very deep look.[/quote]

Yip before the game come out they said it was a trilogy
Commented on 2008-09-29 19:39:48
GOW 3 needs xbox720 if they keep improving it like this

Still the first image...the colors...JUST WoOoW

the first was my favorite X-Live Game!!! played it all the time (free time of course!)

I can´t imagine a GOW3 on Xbox720... It would be Incredible
Commented on 2008-09-29 20:00:56
Wow, this looks very impressive. Can't wait to pull Marcus's trigger again on my HDTV.
