Pros Graphics, gameplay, story
Cons Multiplayer could be better
Summary In a word...WOW...great stuff. I've only played throught the first few acts but I am impressed. The gameplay is top notch, the story, so far, is compelling, and the cut scenes are very well done. It is, hands down, the best looking game to date on any console or any PC. Buy this game and a Xbox 360 now!
Pros This game is perfect. It's almost going to be 2 years since it was released and Gears of War 2 will come out. I'm looking forward to the release of the 2nd gears.
Cons There is nothing to not like about this game.
Summary Bottom line, this game is perfect. Graphics are great. Big Guns. Buckets of Blood. Creative and just will not get old. Gears of War 2 - Game of the year.
Pros Superb action sequences. Thrilling pacing. Literally heart-pounding suspense. Fantastic graphics. You name it...
Cons Don't know if I've found any yet. Not experienced enough a gamer to find flaws in this one. Oh wait, here's one--never enough ammo!
Summary For not being a "real" gamer--I'm blown away by GOW! I play this with my son (please don't tell his mom!), and we have a total blast. Intense, highly satisfying action. Up there on the new 50" plasma, this puppy rocks the house. Thank God I don't live in an apartment! Awesome game, even for newbies like me.
Pros alot of action, great visual effects, fun online game play
Cons I would have liked the campaing to be longer.
Summary This game is second to Halo 3 but with halo supposedly done Gears of war 2 will be the new face of xbox 360
Overall it is a great third person shooter and you will not be dissapointed.
Pros Amazing Graphics, Beautiful Environments, Tense Gameplay, Context Sensitive Controls
Cons Can be quite difficult for a noob to complete, even on casual difficulty
Summary This was one of the first games to come out for the Xbox 360, and it truly showcases the graphics processing power of the 360 in ways never seen before. Rarely, if ever have I ever come across such a beautiful gaming experience....experience? yes that's right it's an experience.
GOW is such a gorgeous game I'd classify it as an interactive movie and not really a game. Sure, the plot is not that original, and the lead characters are the stereotypical steroid pumped bodybuilder types that you'd expect to find in a B grade movie....but still this game rocks, and how!
For starters the environments are just gorgeous. The maps are actually not very large but the whole stage has been set in such an original way as to give the impression of vast expanses of battle torn cities and large crumbling buildings. I just love the way everything gives you an impression of a once splendid civilization torn to pieces.
The weapons are great too, even though my only gripe is that they didn't really make them that believable. I mean an assault rifle with an attached chainsaw?? Man, that's just childish. But then they still are pretty cool all said. I especially liked the 'Hammer of Dawn'. That's a real original idea for a weapon, but I won't spoil it for you. Play the game.
The Locust (i.e. the mean nasty aliens)are big ugly mofos who come in various shapes, sizes and flavors. Flying locust, running locust, climb on the walls locust, bust through the walls locust etc. etc. However jokes apart there are some really tense, and some really scary moments in this game. YES I ADMIT IT I WAS SCARED...just a little, when the Beserker was after me.
Pfff well what can I say. Go buy it with your hard earned cash. Rest assured your money won't be wasted. Nuff said!
