    I just went to my friends house, and it was the first time ive ever actually played an xbox360. I watched him on a game of Pro evoloution soccer, and GOW. i also played some GOW myself.

    I was expecting to be "Blown away" as so many xbox fans put it. they all seem to be "amazed". Well i was shocked. All the hype about the graphics, and they werent even that spectacular. I mean they were good, but they werent huge.

    GOW is also supposed to be one of the best shooters. what? it was good, but ive played better. The overall game was very good, and im sure if i played it more i would have enjoyed it more. But the xbox is very overrated to me, even though its a good console.

    People making it out to be a graphical miracle, however, the graphics i saw today were nothing too speacial at all.

    Also, the style of the menus were very boring. very dull and flat. The Wii menus are bold and full of life. I just didnt feel that warm feeling i get when i turn on my Wii...

    Maybe its just me, or maybe not? Let the flaming begin...

    I AM NOT SAYING THE 360 OR GOW IS BAD, OR THAT THEY HAVE BAD GRAPHICS. IM SAYING THEY HAVE BEEN OVERATED, AND HYPED UP TOO MUCH.

    Everyone has a different opinion about the game/games the 360 has to offer and thats fine. So you didn't like the 360..not that big of a deal. Also I don't see why people would flame you for posting your own opinion about a game..

    well, whether you like it or not, those graphics are pretty much the best graphics in a game to date
    like ive told peoplep before, i think you went to play the game expecting to not like it, so that is what happened
    and what did you play? 1v1, those can be pretty dull

    no no, i do like the 360. i think its a very very good console. but i just think its been overrated and overhyped....and why not make a thread about my opinion? This part of the forum is dead, and isnt "opinions" what forums all al about?

    Bit of a silly question dont you think lol...

    And sovieto, i played some online, and i thought it wa s good. but like i said...overrated. people had been telling me that it was like a new revoloution, as if it were From the heavens above...

    It just seems to me as if it was all blown out of proportion.

    The reason as to why you may dislike the game is because your not used to these types of games. For instance most of the games Nintendo has to offer aren't anywhere near GoW. For the xbox 360 FPS are the most played games so thats why so many people like GoW whereas someone who enjoys the Nintendo style games may think differently. Not that its a bad thing just saying thats probably one of the reasons you disliked the game.

    this part of the forum isnt really dead
    its just most of the people who have a 360 are to busy playing them to come here now (all those wii people who sold theirs for 360)

    I have Crackdown & Gears of War they both seem overated to me. I was bored of Crackdown in less than a day.......... Its way too repetitive. It really only sold cause of the H3 Beta. (Which I have) Now Gears of War was OK. But It got boring fast...... Like alot of 360 games its not much different than other FPS's..... I just ended up playing Halo 2 until my Xbox Live Gold ran out........

    but i do agree with you, gears of wars colours are too grey, black and brown.
    i prefer GRAW and GRAW 2's graphics.

    well when i first got GoW i played it only on my 21" SDTV in my room until we got a 56" 1080p set. once i saw it in 1080p i was blown away. the difference in the gfx between standard and highdef was mind blowing. i never knew it could make that much of a difference so before you say it isnt anything to go "wow" over, play it on an HDTV in 1080p. it has been rated numerous times to be the best graphical game to date (for consoles)

    The people who are saying "GoW" is overrated are the same losers who said and continue to scream that Halo is "overrated". GoW is probably the most beautiful game I've seen on the XBox to date and things are only going to get better for the system. I'm truly excited for a lot of MS's upcoming games this year. I just recently got a job so I'm saving for a 360. Not quite sure which model I want right now. But I do know that Gears of War is on the top of my list. Just watching the trailer makes me want to cry out of agony. I can't wait that much longer...:yikes:

    Bottom line is that haters will hate. Halo 3 will be the sh*t and it scares the crap out of certain fanboys for another system dedicated to top of the line graphics.

    If only we had the Wiimote to play Gears of War with. That would be sick I think....possibly.

    Were you playing split-screen online with your mate? If so, then that's really tedious. Also I found I didn't start to love it til I felt I was good at it and to get into it.

    I think GoW looks amazing. One of the games that makes me want a xbox. But of course everyone jabbs about Console FPS. It be perfect if it was on like the Wii (for the aim). But like hell that will happen, lol
