Well at least they're going to make the sequel sound better. The guns in the first game lacked any sort of kick.

This game is going to seriously kick some ass this November.

Yeah, I mean, they were ok, I liked some of em, but there is plenty of room for improvement coming from there.

despite not really feeling the first game, im actually looking forward to this just to see how the story pans out. im hoping its as good as they're saying this time around.

lmao the old gattling gun sound question, I just like the sound when it slices through everything. Predator 1 had an awesome one

I know what you mean. Unlike a lot of people, I am actually buying Gears of War 2 primarily for the campaign.

Since Gears was my first 360 game, oh so long ago, I'm itching for more campaign. The evolved gaming on all levels is icing on the cake.

Now I just HOPE & PRAY for a better online experience. Online play as it is now or was on Gears 1 angered me the last run through. Glitches, their users & horrible patches and Epic's NAZI Gears Forum, um sorry Cliffy Shrine, Moderators, aka The Personal Opinion Gestapo, burned me out to the point that I almost gave up on online gaming... Oh and I will always bitch about how ridiculous the 10K seriously achievement is/was. Yeah after going over 10K I glitched back and got it the crappy way as I felt cheated.

Fingers are crossed this time but not holding my breath.

@TheFuriousOne, Agreed. Predator 1 has the Gatling gun sound down packed.

As a orchestra (movie/game OSTs) only listener, nice that Steve Jablonsky is doing the OST...hopefully it's good.
He did The Island and Transformers and I didn't like the Island that much, but there are a few Transformer tracks i like.

Looking forward to the OST :P

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

    GriftGFX I still think the iOS UX is inferior to both stock android and several android launchers. (6 Hours ago)
