    It's a third person shooter (at least it looks it from the video). I'd say that's pretty close. Not as close as an on-rails shooter, but quite close still (considering that some first person shooters do have a 3rd person perspective). True, it's not a FPS, but it does have the same kind of game mechanics (just from a different perspective).

    Sorry enough to say, i've never seen GoW gameplay till I watched that vid....that game looks incredible
    I'm probably going to be on my own in saying this here, but I was actually quite turned off by it. Not sure if it was the video itself, but it didn't seem all that colourful. Also, I felt a little sick on the sprinting parts. I know it's meant to be realistic and all, but I just kinda felt like it was meant to be a documentary or something. Also, if I wanted that much realism in a game like that, I think I'd prefer to go paintballing... Also, it looked a little too close to Halo for my comfort, although I didn't really get into Halo to begin with.

    Wii doesn't have any online yet, and even when we do get it, it's gonna suck (unfortunately)
    It isn't even out yet, and you're saying it will suck? Personally, I think I'd prefer the "sucky" free online to a subscription service. As long as it works...

    gears has cover systems, you you can roll and do what nots so its not like a fps, and the view you get and things you can do are all very different from FPSs and its not all about who can aim the quickest at all
    GoW is def. a mature game, its color theme is grey, you can tell, like how Zelda TP's color theme seems to be brown, + you can turn up the brightness anyways, that video seemed to have default settings on, but no green bubbly trees and mushrooms here
    friend codes...meh...i doubt voice com will even be an option since they want enough security to have friend codes again, at the most itll probably be you can only talk to wii friends with a mic
    online servers may not be the greatest + on FPS online games people are just going to find the best way to play, so while your doing huge movements and what not, their just doing a cheap way of play to win

    There's only 1st-person, 2nd-person, and 3rd-person...they're labeled like that because they're different. That's like saying the "cricket" (an imaginary gun from Men and Black that can blow up an entire house with one little shot) is 'technically' the same thing as a desert eagle...sure one is about 1000 x's stronger than the other, but they're both classified as pistols...

    All I can say is that's your opinion. I think the sprinting part was pretty cool looking in my mind, the angle kinda tilted and all; I liked it. Sure I would rather go play paintball or airsoft, but that doesn't make this game bad.

    I agree with you, I just want online. I don't care how much it sucks, it's free.

    and youd rather aim a gun on the wii which is more real than go airsoft/paintballing?
    btw watch the video i linked, its a montage, not round after round

    I'm not informed on the selling of units, all I know is nextgenwars said 9.[something] million; that doesn't mean anything.

    GoW isn't an FPS...not even close. In case you didn't know, FPS means First Person Shooter....in other words you're looking through the eyes of your character. Tell me, is this 'FPS'?

    360 doesn't have 2 games online, go to your local store. Look at the games. How many say "Xbox Live" on them? And as many as you count, that's not even all of them. Wii doesn't have any online yet, and even when we do get it, it's gonna suck (unfortunately); but it'll sitll be awesome to kick online SSBB ass.

    Don't you come up with your so called 'facts', because I believe that 'facts' that are made up are called fiction....?

    I'm sure Sovieto is surprised seeing me stand up for the 360....but Wiitendo, you're an extremely biased Nintendo fanboy. At least i'm an incy bit fair.
    Very Nice Wiired don't do it, It's still to early to be deciding whether you not want to sell you Wii.

    I'm sorry, that just sounds like added features to me. A slight evolution of the third person shooter genre.

    GoW is def. a mature game
    That's the first time that's been brought up, considering it wasn't in even in question.

    its color theme is grey, you can tell, like how Zelda TP's color theme seems to be brown
    Well, to be fair, it isn't just browns. Take a look at hyrule field. Take a look at the sunset. Take a look at Zoras fountain. Take a look at Hyrule Castle. Take a look at Gerudo desert. There's plenty of colour in there.

    + you can turn up the brightness anyways, that video seemed to have default settings on, but no green bubbly trees and mushrooms here
    Ok, you've just gone from one extreme to the other.

    friend codes...meh...i doubt voice com will even be an option since they want enough security to have friend codes again, at the most itll probably be you can only talk to wii friends with a mic
    And that's a bad thing? Are you saying it will be let down for the fact that you can't hear an annoying person on the end chuckling to themselves before saying "noob"? Also, friendcodes aren't that bad. Sure it's a 12 digit number, but geez, it's not like you have to enter it in every time, and it's not like your limited to whoever is on your friendcode list.

    Sorry for the double post - these replies are coming thick and fast.

    Did you just try to dispute me, by making an anology between guns? For a start, there's no power difference between 1st and 3rd person shooters, only different perspectives. Second, what about on-rails shooter? That is also first person, but has more of a difference between regular first person shooters and third person shooters.

    All I can say is that's your opinion.
    And that's all it was meant to be.

    I think the sprinting part was pretty cool looking in my mind, the angle kinda tilted and all; I liked it. Sure I would rather go play paintball or airsoft, but that doesn't make this game bad.
    I'm not saying it make it bad, I'm just saying that if I wanted so much "realism" in a game, I'd prefer to do it in real life.

    I agree with you, I just want online. I don't care how much it sucks, it's free.
    Me too. Still, the delay of Metroid Prime 3 is a pretty good sign of there being implemented one. Also, Smash Bros will be excellent online. Red Steel 2 had a job posting for somebody with experience in some kind of online work - so we should see a version of that online. Battalion Wars 2 will be online as well. I think the online should be done well - Nintendo never releases anything without playing it inside and out first, and I believe the online play will be no exception.

    I never said that. I'd prefer aiming with the wiimote to the 360 controller, but real life beats both of them - and so it should. The wii is not designed to be a shooting simulator.

    well of course its like a first person, but yet in a third person view!!! and if youve played it youd know its different from any FPS
    i mentioned mature to go on to say why its a darker game with a grey color theme
    of course it dosent all have a brown tint, nor dose gears have a grey tint everywhere, but the game looks that way for most parts
    and brightness is an adjustment that should be taken into consideration if you think its to dark/gloomy of a game
    but there are people who might want to hear other people, make friends maybe? well then again i guess since you are tlaking about wiis, the majority will probably be 8-12 year olds so sure, but you still want to make friends dont you?
    of course, you can play with random people who you probably cant talk too, but its still a hassle nonetheless which account names would be much perferred by everyone im sure
    and you totally skipped the fact about the best way to play =/

    The camera view between an FPS and a 3rd-person is very different....
