Now i'm not denying how good it looks, frankly it's mind blowing but what i am concerned about is the gameplay. Epic is a very talented developer that can make great games but its mindset if firmly fixed in that of multiplayer games. If you look at Epic's track record their sinlge player games fall short of their mulitplayer Tournament games, observe:

Single Player

Unreal (Pc) - 8.4,   Unreal 2 The Awakening (Pc) - 7.9, Unreal 2 The Awakening (Xbox) - 6.1, Unreal 2 The Awakening Special Edition (Pc) 7.9

Multiplayer

Unreal Tournament (Pc) - 9.5, Unreal Tournament (PS2) - 8.2, Unreal Tournament (DC) - 9.4, Unreal Tournament 2003 (PC) - 8.8, Unreal Championship (xbox) - 8.5, Unreal Championship 2 The liandri Conflict (Xbox) - 9.0, Unreal Tournament 2004 (PC) - 9.4

As we can see Epic can achive good single player games and Great multiplayer games. So I predict that GOW will be a game that looks like a great game but will merely play like a good one, Epic is stuck in a recurring mindset of churning out fantastic games built for online.

Technically we haven't seen much on Gears of War. The demos have strict limitations (even God mode) only a very small percentage of the title has been in display. Heck some people still go by the same E3 build from last may. 

point is basically, its too early to say anything.

Because people are just going for graphics.  The gameplay itself looks stale and the animation sucks.

On a side note stop calling it GoW of any other form of gow.That is reserved for a great game on the great ps2 (God of War)

GOW has genaric gameplay that to me honestly looks boring. The physics look like crap as well which is sad seeing how it runs on unreal 3.0.

Cliffy B. himself said the game will not be a run and gun game, but will be a duck behind the wall pot shot game. Basically you hide behind a wall take shots out of the corner, whoopedy DOO!!! This game is going to flop badly!!!

then why are lemmings hyping the crap out of it?

- Its an Xbox 360 exclusive
- Its made by a high profile developer
- It looks fantastic

I really don't see why any lemming shouldn't be excited. These reasons are no different from any hyped PS3 title...

It was Hyped to prove that X360 is better than PS3 graphic wise. However, there are articles stating PS3 is more powerful than the X360. These statments are coming from gaming developers.

Agreed, 3/4's of the people who have replyed have clearly not played...and it's sad they bash it. Well guess what I have played it, and it's a great game. The many critics have played it and loved it, and over a million people pre-ordered the game, and from what I have heard...most people seem to love it as well. /thread.

LOOKS boring? Your biased opinion=worthless, but thanks for posting anyway. Gears of War is actually extremely fun, you should stop being a fanboy and (*gasp!*) try it.

Technically we haven't seen much on Gears of War. The demos have strict limitations (even God mode) only a very small percentage of the title has been in display. Heck some people still go by the same E3 build from last may.

point is basically, its too early to say anything.

then why are lemmings hyping the crap out of it?

- Its an Xbox 360 exclusive
- Its made by a high profile developer
- It looks fantastic

I really don't see why any lemming shouldn't be excited. These reasons are no different from any hyped PS3 title...

Looks? So you have never played. You can talk as much about graphics as you want but gameplay is a different story IMO the gameplay was awesome. And animations are actually pretty good.

Yes, I thought Gears of War a little over-hyped, seeing as it was not a very long game, but it was probably the mosst fun I'd had on my 360, next to DOA 4 and Oblivion.

I was a little dissapointed in Gears Of War, but it was still a great game, with amazing graphics, plenty of weapons, and awesome music. It was waaaay to short though, which is why I was slightly disappointing.

gears of war doesnt look appealing to me.Dont even try and say it will be better than mgs4

On a side note stop calling it GoW of any other form of gow.That is reserved for a great game on the great ps2 (God of War)
its GeOW nubs *looks below and shakes head*


diggyzoom

First of all mgs 4 is not even out yet and gears is considered a killer app.

And second of all. I find it kinda annoying when people type gow couse i don't know which one. But in my eyes gears has earnedgod of war's abbreviation. God of war is great though, the sequel is even better.
