I've been playing the Gears SP cause all the Gears 2 fottage got me in the mood. And i can honestly say that the games graphics still impress me. Specifically the charector models.

One of my favorite times for graphics is directly before the mining station and the imulsion is reflecting light off your charector.

(back when they cared) People would always complain about the lack of color in the game. But i don't think they are taking into account the setting of the game. It takes place in a derelict city, how many colors could you possibly expect without them looking out of place?

Just a random thought for anybody that might have been interested.

charector? do you mean character?

School ended 2 hours ago, after that time i don't bother to check spelling and often times spell things phonetically. Get over it.

I've been impressed by Gears' graphics. The game had a very unique and impressive art direction. The design team called it "destroyed beauty," and I think they captured that concept very well in the game.

I thought the game looked amazing when I first played it, and that was only in standard definition, haha. The only reason I can understand why someone would say that the game looks bad is, as someone said earlier, they didn't agree with the art style of the game. Like stated before though, I think it fits perfectly within the game's setting/universe.

The graphics are not really better they just added some more color and destructable envrionments. The textures, shadows, reflections, and lighting still all look the same only with more color.

I'd recommend you play the first too, you could find it for really cheap if not now than closer to the release of the second one.

Gears is gorgeous, as is any game on the U3 engine!

I've recently been comparing it to MGS4 for a true 'exclusives' gfx comparison...

After replaying GOW, I must say...my judgement is much more clouded! The models on that game are breathtaking!!!

While the models are better, I'd say shadowing, environments, particle effects, and special effects (I.E. hair, things blowing in the wind, clothing, etc) look MUCH better on MGS...oh well, what can you expect from Konami?

I agree with you, the graphics still to this day look AMAZING. In my mind there's still no other game on any console that looks as good as Gears. I don't understand peoples complains with the use of the greys, to me I think a bunch of colorful objects would throw the whole gritty blood and guts theme off. But it is nice to see part two implementing more colors. Gears 2 will be just that much better!
