Dunno..

Single player is decent but multiplayer lacks hard. 4v4 is all they could come up with?

the long term playability of the game is none...as opposed to R6 which has almost endless playability and offers i dont know how many online multiplayer modes.

This shows you what marketing can do because everything I've seen from RB6 kicks it's ***.

Been playing for a few days now and I like the game. It gets frustrating sometimes b/c some of the stuff you have to do is hard, but it's still fun nonetheless.

Hitman Blood Money is the next game I'm trying

i have rainbow six vegas and gears... and personally 1 player mode i like gears more... its just an addicting game, story keeps me and its dope... rainbow six is good too... i haven't played it as much as i played gears but im kinda moving along in the game... they're both fun, but gears tops it... online i only tried gears once or twice and hated it... haven't even played RB6 online yet

I agree completely. I know I'll get flamed for this, but I have both COD 3 and GoW, and I almost never touch Gears anymore. I can play COD 3 online all day.

12 on 12, 7 on 7, whatever you want. Maps are big, small, whatever you want, and the guns are realistic. I can't get enough of it.

Edit: I never played Ghost Recon, but I just downloaded the Demo for part II and it seems real cool. 16 players Online sounds fun, and I don't know what it is, but I hate futuristic shooters with Fake guns. I was never into the Halos because of this, and I can't get into that Lost Planet either.

I think 5 on 5 would have been better but its perfect. BTW I'm a effing BEAST at gears.

Just after christmas i picked up gears, rb6, and cod3... cod3 i played through right away, i didnt enjoy the single player as much as cod2 when you consider the "storyline", but the graphics and game play i enjoyed more... then i switched to gears of war... because of all that ive heard about it... i played it for a bit... while its nice to look at... going from human combat, with real weapons, to whatever gears is... just didnt work for me.. so i went over to rb6... and i was hooked.. offline, online, whatever. Im still not all the way through the single player, in fact i think im only about half way. It keeps me coming back, cuz i keep dying at spots, and have to... take breaks really because i get frustrated haha i just need to break, and think about it... if i still feel like playin 360... i go back to gears again... but i just cant get into it. i find myself playing it really only to look at it... the storyline... does nothign for me, really i have no clue whats going on... the "boss battles" really ruin it for me too... and the fakeness of it. the weapons, the enemies.. i dont know, other than the halo series, these like... fantasy shooters are pretty difficult for me to enjoy. i like a bit of realism. and rb6 is full of that. whenever i turn on my 360, and decide now between gears and rb6... its always rb6 first it seems, then gears second... oh! and as for gears online... never been, dont really intend to either. just my 2 cents

I honestly can't figure out why GoW only did 4v4. It's not like the graphics are that outstanding and are going to bog multiplayer down or anything.

I thought most multiplayer shooters were atleast 8v8.

honestly, I though GOW is a good game, but as i've stated before, RB6 is my fav 360 game. I don't even play GOW now because of RB6.

You know what it is, it's the the type and style of gamer you are. GOW is for people that like to just run and shoot all over the place. Personally, I'm not that type of gamer. I like tactical games better. I'm assuming th vast majority of gamers are run and gun type of gamers and that is what all the hoopla is about.

Gears of War is a beautiful action game (played in high def on a 42" plasma is amazing). It's frenetic from beginning to end and sets the basis for some pretty good sequels. Of course the multiplayer was pretty weak but they focus multiplayer on UT. It's a very well made, easily accessible blow em up which makes it easy for the average person to get into. Long term play not really, but it's fun to go through in co-op with a friend on the couch.

Sure it's not for everyone, but for 360 fans just be happy to see any game getting really good coverage cause it just brings more people to the 360.

GOW is a tactical game....if you run and gun...you die...and has the best graphics i've seen in a long time.

i also have rainbow 6...its multiplayer is more fun because its like 4 player co-op.


GOW's 2 player co-op is awesome though.

I personally think 8v8 or 12v12 is perfect. Anymore then that and it get's confusing and any less it get's gay.

COD 2 you're talking about.

COD 3 you can get up to 24 players online at once. You can do 12 v 12 with COD 3.

Edit: I gotta give Rainbow Six a shot. It gets nothing but great reviews from everyone, and I love the concept of the game and firing realistic weapons.

It's a fun game to kick back and play with your boys, or go online and whatnot. However, IMO, very similar to Resistance, the single player sucks. The only games aside from sports games with great single player = GTA types, and the COD series. Also, games with actual stories behind them (good ones). I can't wait for Stranglehold in March!

How is it Similar to RFoM? It came out before RFoM, not to mention RFoM doesnt even compare to Gears overall.
