    Gears of War

    Ok, I just bought this game last night for my XBox 360 and it is the best game I have played since Final Fantasy 9. Simply brilliant. Not only is the gameplay amazing but the graphics are thes best of any game on any system to date. Any one else play it yet?

    It looks cool, but I really didn't like FF9....

    A friend of mine says GoW is '10 times better than H2' - kinda hard to believe....

    Nah, it's not hard to believe at all. The halo series cna't even come close to the complexity and grphics of Gears of War. The Halo campagin was just terrible! All levels looked the same, and same linear bullshit. Play this game and you will see. It's frigg'n fantastic.

    Um... That's pretty harsh. I really enjoyed the Halo Campaign, and just about every FPS is going to be linear... at least, until Mass Effect comes out.

    I don't think it's fair to call Halo terrible in relation to GoW until H3 comes out. H2 was limited on gfx because it was made for a much less powerful console.

    I'll play it.... eventually - It sounds like a great game.

    I got Gears of War 2 days ago. I would have to say: AMAZING GRAPHICS! Gameplay is also awesome but still does not compare to HL2 singleplayer. After playing a bit, i went online to see what other people said about it. Found some articles saying that Gears of War definitely has superior graphics but there were no innovations. It was just a regular third person shooter. Sure you have your chainsaw rifle among other cool weapons, but those come standard with all shooters.

    Imo, GoW does have a great story but not as good as HL2, so far, at least. I've beaten HL2 singleplayer once already and it does have a great storyline and so does episode 1. But anyways, GoW does offer awesome gameplay and stuff, it is in now way a bad game.

    It IS unbelieavibly amazing. COLDshiver, I was never a Halo fan, so to me, that game just sucked. I played Halo 1 and sure it was a great innovation for FPSs but Halo 2? What the hell, I felt like I was playing the same game. And now the screenshots and the "new content" in Halo 3 doesn't seem like it's going anywhere. YAY, you can reload with two hands. Yipee. Gears of War was a breath of fresh air and a huge step in the right direction.

    i got this game 2 days ago also. it owns the hell out of halo2 (its up to par with halo1 though!). me and my friend beat it on Hardcore in like 7 hrs and are working through it on Insane (already half way through act 4). the game is short but has an amazing replay value. he multiplayer is just as awsome. the only thing i dont like about it is its multiplayer options. its just 3 diffrent versions of team deathmatch. no CTF or objective based and you only get one life. however it is EXTREAMLY fun. i hope they add more gametypes soon

    Yeah, they are going to have alot of downloadable content for this game since it sold VERY well. I am already looking forward to part two.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but exactly did you expect from Halo 2? A completely different game from Halo 1? I enjoyed Halo 2 for the story. I can't wait until it comes to PC and I can mod it out.
