Gears of War

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
So who here has played it? I just got it yesterday when I got a few other games. I am about 45 minutes into it and damn it's awesome. The graphics are imo beyond Crysis quality and runs soooooo smooth and perfect totally maxed out.

Anyone else enjoy it?

I'm not a fan of the XBox live thing though..

Yea. Gears of War on the PC, IMO is amazing. Play it on my sig rig, which isn't so impressive. Max resolution, and everything. Even in vista on DX10. Just fantastic. Not better than Crysis gfx, but better gameplay experience.

Its a good game, only played through it once because its a little repetitive, its always duck behind a wall and wait for someone to pop out then shoot them...but that chainsaw bayonet is so freakin sweet Graphics are not better than Crysis...maybe better than some of Crysis' lower settings but I think Crysis is still the graphics king...best realistic graphics anyway.

I play this game with my 8600GT with highest setting at 1280x1024 resolution, I get like 20-30 fps-which is imo pretty much playable.

Yep, I loved it on pc. Maxed with dx10 and AA is beautiful and it is a very well coded game. I rarely dropped below 40 fps with an oc'ed quad and a single 8800 GT. It's a ram hog though. After a few hours the ram usage would top out at 3.5gb. Easily in my top 5 pc games ever.

Has the game ever crashed on any of you? I just installed this game and it crashes about a minute after i start it. I can sit around at the menu screen or start the game or do whatever and it'll crash after a minute or so. The only way i can play is to hit alt+tab when the "war.exe is experiencing problems..." window pops up. Any help would be appreciated thanks

That happens to me, but when it does I just boot up the game again and it works. Their is also a patch that is supposed to fix most of the crashing.

Do you mean the "title update" patch? Because I've tried that already and it doesn't really do anything for me.
