I don't see what was so great about Gears. I know 3rdps games are repetitive but this one seemed to be the most repetitive and the whole cover system tied into your running really annoyed me.







Opps my bad about fps but still its a shooter.

It's not a FPS, it's a third-person shooter!

There's a chainsaw counter... and human shields... and other than more enemies it looks no different that the first one. And Cliffy B. described it as "Shenanigans."

 >:(

I'm not excited.... At all....
I will put a sig on as soon I have something interesting to say.

The single player campaign was pretty standard as far a FPSs go.  Convoluted story basically amounting to: Kill monsters, defeat final boss.  However, there were some great parts.  Having to get the one monster to chase you and diving out of the way at the last second so he would break open the wall was fun.  So was trying to avoid him long enough to use the hammer of dawn.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

lol
it just seems like the human shield thing isn't going to work at all... Can you imagine how it will work, or not work, in multiplayer? Or even in the single player campaign, it seems kind of like a gimmick to me, and that they haven't come up with anything that would make it better than the first game, other than sending hundreds of locust at you.

well i imagine you cant do it to any corpse, i belive it will be for incapacitated locust only, so it is another option instead of Curb stomping because you snap the neck of you shield and i doubt you would do that to a corpse :P

and plus, it wouldnt last forever, the guy you use will prolly get shot to bits if he gets hit enough, and it might not be in MP

While that's probably true, It just doesn't seem like it fits in with Gears...

Yeah I just don't believe it's in character for the Locusts to even shed a thought for the safety of a fellow grunt. Although I suppose it was act as a semi effective bullet-sponge.

how i see it that its just protection until the other locust shoot him to shreds, i dont think they will cease fire altogheter in fear of harming the shield

Even when I just had bought this game I didn't really enjoy playing it, I didn't want to play it. It was plain boring, well, I got bored after 10 secs. I played through it though since I got it for christmas and I didn't want to be rude, and after I played it through I dissliked it even more. I can't understand how people can praise this game so much.

I'm sure just like anything that a lot of people like it and dislike it. I loved the first one. I spent days and months playing it. I played the single player over and over until I could beat insane in less than 6 hours on co op, then I played the multiplayer for months. But to each his/her own.
On the topic of the human shields, I can see it turning into one of those things that is there but that no one actually uses, like the curbstomp/ chainsaw online. I'm am really hoping that it doesn't work the other way around, though, and that locusts aren't able to pick up your guys, who you have to keep alive.

curbstomp/ chainsaw online.

Don't use chainsaw online? Are you crazy or something? I killed four guys in a row using the chainsaw, with my other three allies already dead in one game for example. Not to mention the countless times I curbstomped a guy to make sure his friend nearby didn't get him up since he was close enough, same thing with ambushing people with the chainsaw for an easy kill that didn't require wasting ammo.
