What's up with not showing the map. This video barely lets you see anything.

I just don't get how Epic can ruin the best map in Gears of War.. I mean wow... It's supposed to be 2 snipers on EACH side, not the god damn torque bow (unless it spawned in the center where HoD used to spawn).. Wow.. this map is gonna suck already and it hasn't even been released..

@ Phanger1990, You do Realize that this map pack is called SNOWblind, right? The whole point of making these maps all snowy is to fit in with the game's time period, not the previous game's time period. Gears 2 takes place during the winter so these maps make sense. Anyways, Can't wait to get these maps, they come out next week during my spring break, woohoo, can't wait to play'em!!!

The maps sure look nice graphically with the falling snow and all, but I can't help but feeling dissappointed with the way Epic are doing these maps. It feels like they comes up with an idea, in this case snow, and then they re-use the same theme for all the maps. I would think it was much cooler if there was more variety to the map packs... now it doesnt feel any special with a snow level since they done four of them... anyone feels the same? In Gears 1 they released map packs with very unique looking maps with really cool looks, like Bullet March and Substation...=) well well, epic wont care anyways, but i'd be awesome with different looking maps

I agree with AtomicBaconBits.

This is such a relief! I was afraid Epic was going to brighten up and make Fuel Depot all colorful and crap...but they didn't.They stuck to the dark and moody feel of the Gears 1 version,YES!
