    Default Thougts on Gears of War

    So I started playing Gears this weekend and I like the duck and hide aspect but it still feels pretty scripted. I dont feel like there is anything new here?

    Thoughts?

    It is pretty linear in it's game play. The appeal of the game is its visual punch and cinematic spectacle. If you're looking for more options in the gameplay, you can try Rainbow Six Vegas, which allows you to pick several different approaches to the different scenarios.

    I didn't like it all that much. I'm at a friend's crib, up at an ungodly hour, and I have a choice between Gears or PS1 games for entertainment. I'm going for the PS1.

    The graphics are great, but the design could have been better and I didn't find it at all immersive. The "innovations" weren't really innovations, and I can't honestly say they even made an improvement on the duck and cover thing.

    One of the greatest FPS of all time.

    Amazing graphics, fantastic controls, great cover system, and the multiplayer(especially co-op) is sublime.

    Thanks all, yeah the graphics are really nice. I'll just finish the campaign and then play online. I'm thinking that may be more fun for me.

    That's just crazy. You can't tell me you don't see the difference between's GoW's cover system and Splinter Cell's, MGS's or GRAW's or...anything really.

    Hell, play campaign with another person. Even in split-screen it's 100x better than it already is.

    And you're not playing on "casual" mode, are you?

    It's not 1st-person

    Yeah, seriously, play the Campaign on co-op on a hard difficulty. It's tons of fun.

    It's fun, but it's a "been there, done that" feeling. Excellent graphics though...online is fun too.

    I'm crap at Splinter cell, always have been, and i don't know what GRAW's stands for, but in MGS, i never felt comfortable with using cover, mainly due to the series consistantly awkward controls. In Gears, i tried not useing cover fighting the first enemy, and bit it, hard.
    Eventualy figured it out and found it easy, though the fact that my guy always seemed to charge into cover and slammed himself up against, say, a brick wall, was kinda weird.

    GoW is an awesome game, IMO. Many of the reasons have already been explained.

    Do people feel there should be another difficulty level in there, or is it OK as is?

    You mean you want it harder than INSANE? Cuz INSANE is pretty damn hard.

    I love the campaign, even tho it's pretty short, the co-op more than makes up for it.

    Deathmatch multiplayer, however, gets really old, really fast. All of my friends LOVE it, but I just cant get into it like they can.

    I love GoW. The multiplayer is intense. Easily my favorite game for 360.
