lol you just claimed the game is really bad, then admitted basing that opinion solely off the trailer? how can you make a call like that
the gameplay looks exactly the same as previous installments. which is a good thing as thats how the game is played.
i love the gears story and i want more, especially with the promised plot twists. i've read all the books leading up to it, anxiously awaiting Coalition's End which apparently ties right in the where the game starts. the Gears of War series is all about story telling. the gunplay is a necessity of life for these people.
and of course the graphics are dull.
1 - its the UT3 engine. besides Bulletstorm all the UT3 games are dull its just their particular art style. its not like they "failed" at creating rainbows for all the little boys and girls out there. they give us exactly what they want to give us, a dirty gritty artwork suitable for these kinds of shooters. suits the setting and situation perfectly really, if you understand whats actually going on.
2 - its a post-apocalyptic setting thats trying to depict near hopelessness and close proximity to the end of everything. not to mention the majority of Sera has been nuked by the Hammer of Dawn strikes. and now these crazy Lambent creatures that explode on impact are everywhere. fair enough in gears 3 they are on an island that was away from the Hammer strikes but the world is scarred. mankind has almost lost. theres no place for sunshine and lollipops here when they are barely even able to maintain an existence. thats the whole point of gears of war.
i read an interview with Karen Traviss
its things like this that really draw the lines between serious appreciative gamers, and people who just play games and dont give a crap.
im sorry if this seems like a personal attack, its not. i just cannot stand people saying "oh this sucks" and "oh that definitely fails" based off a frickin trailer or short vid or screenshot, without even having a single moment of hands on experience.
i mean how many times have we seen EPIC trailers, only to tie in with an absolutely crap game? pendulum swings both ways, trailers are just a glimpse of what to expect.
to each their own but give it a chance ffs. sick of todays gamers. bunch of sooky girls and spoilt brats who seem to think every new game release is just another way to cheat them out of money or something, without actually sitting down and appreciating a game for what it is, art, story, personal interactive entertainment etc. you shouldnt even be playing games then, period.Edited by gtarmanrob - 6/9/11 at 8:23am
