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.
