I'm planning on it but I'm going to let my friend GameFly it first so I know how good it is

I don't recall. IGN has articles on all hat stuff though(at least as much as anyone else) I'd look there if no one else knew here.

I thought I read that you would just be able to join in progress and take the place of one of the team members...I may be crossing up may games though

I'm getting this game for sure... this along with assasin's creed seem like two next gen masterpieces... hopefully i'm correct because I will be copping both... and a feel.

I'm actually not planning on getting it... It just looks too generic. When I play if it wows me, I'll get it. But it looks like you standard shooter (except pretty as hell) to me.

What about the Cover? Its not a run in gun you have to acutally use cover. The brutes acutally take alot of bullets. Plus you get a freaking CHAINSAW!

I would have to agree with mor it does look good graphically but I have a big feeling it will turn out to be a standard shooter that was overhyped. Like most games that are hyped that happens.

How is it a normal shooter? Do you know how its played? I suggest you watch the Videos.

I don't think it looks too generic, all FPS are generic in the fact that they are first person view and that's it. I think the cover, destructable environments, and intellegent AI will make this game pretty good... of course I've been wrong about games before (and I still think PDZ is a fun game)

I think Half Life 2: Episode 2 is a much better looking shooter.

Oh, and the reason I thing Gears of War looks generic is because it reminds me of a game that came out a few years back... Called Kill Switch (http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/action/killswitch/index.html). It blew chunks.

It's a 3rd person shooter, and the big whoopty doo of the game is... tada! You can cover behind stuff.

If Gears of War is a polished up Kill Switch, it's going to be horrible.

i was going to, but idk anymore. It just seems too short to warrant $60 plus, i think i have too many shooters. At this point i'm more interested in Mass Effect

I heard its only 8 hours of storyline. Though the game looks really hard. Plus the Chain saw!

$60 game / 8 Hours of gameplay = $7.50 per hour

$7.50 per hour to play Killswitch 2? :lol:

I may be wrong, this game might be the next greatest thing. I just do't see me liking it.

Ok watched... now what does gow do that no other games do? All I see is a normal shooter with high graphics. Not once in that video set was one thing that wowed me. Like mor said episode 2 will probably be a better shooter overall than this and me personally I dont even like hl2 all that much but gow is just a pretty shooter. Hey it may be really good but right now I see no reason to buy it.

I fail to see how its a "normal shooter"
