firstly let me just say how much i enjoyed gow1, campaign-wise and especially multiplayer.. as in 300hrs+. so it was a huge surprise when i started playing gow2 and not to 'dig it'/'feel it' or even 'enjoy it'!

here's my main gripes:-

(1) the lobby system sucks ie too slow and bulky, reminds me of Halo lobby system which I didnt like at all. Inventive? nah huge step back for me, i can truely say the gow1 lobby system is better.

(2) the movement of the characters seem def abit slow and don't have the same 'feel' to them. it's like they all have a huge 'dump' inside them.

(3) do you realise you can 'roll' quicker than road road? thats comical.

(4) the weapons seems imbalanced.

to cap off it's was with amazement how gow2 failed to meet expectations, i personally believe it's a step back from GOW1. my multiplayer time spent is now in LEFT 4 DEAD which really is the best multiplayer game on 360.

considering how gow2 is currently 4th on time most spent on 360 worldwide it shows clearly the masses are in agreement, you've messed the game up.

i even opened this account to express my disappointment with gow2, going from 'must have-epic game' to maybe a trade-in. oh how the mighty fall....

You obviously dont unerstand that the first gears wasn't exactly great when it first came out.

Games ALWAYS improve as the developers get critique from their fans and thus patch the game to improve it. And IMO the weapons are MORE balanced.

_____I can agree with you here, honestly all the menus seem a little forced, surely they could have done better. Seems like they were trying so hard to ONLY use Red & Black. I mean, I don't have a problem with grunge graphics, but there IS a limit on how many scratches you should use. As for the actual matchmaking process, yeah it's a hassle. It's made worse for me by the horrible visuals. At least have some sort of a "Current News" update box, or SOMETHING we can read while waiting. That's really the only solution, they're probably not going to rewrite the code to change how it works with only a ~10M budget unfortunately.

_____I like the change to character movement. Interviews with the Devs have shown their intent to make the game feel "heavier, bigger, and more epic." It's a bit more realistic as well, I mean, just imagine carrying that kind of weight. You're not winning any marathons with full body armor, two weapons and a pistol on your back.

_____Yeah it doesn't really make sense from a physics view, but you have to understand this is the lesser of two evils. The shotgun fest of Gears 1 was obviously NOT how the game was intended to be played. If Stopping Power had been implemented in Gears 1, and you tried to roll while being shot at, you'd actually go slower than if you were just running - so they boosted the run speed in the sequel.

_____I disagree with this almost completely. Every weapon in the game falls into a class, and these classes are extremely situational in terms of use. (There is one exception I'll get to in a sec) Hammerburst/Lancer, Torque/Sniper, Boomshot/Hammer of Dawn, Boltlok/Gorgon, Frag Grenade/Ink Grenade, Mortar/Mulcher, Gnasher/Snub/Lancer. For killing someone quickly running around at mid range, the Hammerburst is your best bet. If you've got a group of three people crowding around a dumpster, pull out the Boomshot or Hammer of Dawn. Also, every weapon has advantages and disadvantages against all others.

Hammerburst vs. Lancer: Hammerburst will win.
Hammerburst vs. Torque: Torque will win.
Hammerburst vs. Gnasher: it's a tossup - comes down to player skill.


_____The one exception to this is the chainsaw. OH HEY LOOK I'M WITHIN 10 FEET OF THAT GUY I THINK I'LL PUSH B AND KILL HIM IN 2 SECONDS. Bullshit. Facing a chainsaw is almost always a roll of the dice, unless you're expecting it and are in a much better position.


_____P.S. 300+ hours? Pfft. Back when I was into World of Warcraft I had 2200+ hours logged on a single character. Also to answer the impending question, yes, my social life suffered.
