I dont know why everyone seems to hate this game so much. yeah the gunplay could use some tweaks(i swear ill be aiming on the enemy and the freakin reticule will move on its own) but other than that its a great game. the story is kinda weird i say im about halfway through the game and they still havent explained the charachters background and the girl is almost like always seperated from you. the graphics are fine though i think they are really good. i just rented the game 2 days ago and every time i get home i just put the game in and keep playing. one thing though that really ticks me off though is the checkpoints(ill be fighting for like 30 minutes just to die by something stupid and have to start all over) i dont know what it is about this game but its just fun to play i recommend at least a rent.
This game is what everyone on here is saying, only not quite as bad. It is a slightly worse version of gears as far as gameplay is concerned. But it does have a better selection of weaponry. The story is decent, but the end is TERRIBLE! I won't ruin anything other than expect disappointment. Almost as terrible as the end for Borderlands.....maybe worse! Seems like it could have been a good game, but got rushed and the developers never got the chance to play it the whole way through before shipping it out. Also the difficulty settings seem to be outlandish at some points. Easy can be really easy but sometimes it can still be unbelievably frustrating, and I can DESTROY Gears of War on the hardest difficulty and yet I still died repeatedly on certain parts on EASY mode like I was trying to beat Sigma from Mega Man X using only Terd Pellet Mans attack!
If you liked Gears of War, and you like story mode style third person shooters, then rent it. If you liked Gears of War mainly for its multiplayer then forget it. And if you like Paris Hilton then go kill yourself.
