Gears of War - Day 1


Just got my copy of the game a couple of hours ago... Installed it (a couple of times due to some later-found error)... Finally got it to work!!! Tweaked some settings so that it ran smoothly... Gawd, this game rawks...

First off, the graphics are awesome (it would be better if I had a better rig). Second, it's super fast-paced unlike Crysis... It's super fun and freaking bloody... The Locus (baddies) look like sh!t for god's sake... zzz

I played till the berserker part... got killed and don't feel like trying anymore till tomorrow... Now is nearly 3am.

First thoughts about the game : It exceeded my expectations. Looks great, feels great... I only have one problem and that is WHY DOESNT THE FRIGGIN GUN HAVE AN ON-SCREEN CROSSHAIR... argh... I hate having to press the right mouse button to aim... Maybe I'll figure something out tomorrow...

Other than that, just great! Can't wait to continue...

PS : 6 days till Crysisssss... XD

Ah! another gears fan is born! Gears is a great game, it does have some flaws...the campaign is too short and there are issues here and there...but for the most part it's a solid game! Especially in multiplayer...that's where Gears' shines...in my opinion it's superior to halo3..in fact, it kicks halo's butt! I hope that the pc servers could merge with the xbox 360 servers so there could be a new influx of players... About the crosshairs...yeah, it is difficult to transition if you come from other 1st person shooters. But I think that as you play you will gain an appreciation for the 3rd person and eventually become a master at the "no-scope" and "blind -shot" techniques of play! Good luck and happy fraggin'! =D
