It has just come to my attention that the multiplayer for GoW is 4v4. As if that isn't bad enough, based on my past experience with MP games stuck at 4v4, I foresee performance issues on the horizon. Are we in store for another Prey lagfest? Outside of the LAN enabled demo's for GoW, has anyone seen it operate over XBL?

It's all sorts of great and fantastic that the game is pretty, but if it chugs along in MP I am losing interest faster than I would to a hot chick at the VD clinic. I know some of you won't bat an eye at this, but I think I am going to cancel my preorder and rent this first.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I was recently able to play a final build of this game.....I was amazed! Obviously I wasn't able to play online with it so I can only speculate about the performance issues. However, epic games has a looong history of online multiplayer games which worked extremely well. So it would seem as though a game being touted as "The Killer App" for the 360, would receive PLENTY of testing before shipped. I really don't think you have anything to worry about.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Multiplayer isn't really the focus of the game, the developers have said that GoW is a single-player game first and foremost.

I would say that lag online is quite likely since most live games suffer from some lag.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

PAC, i love the hot chick analogy lol. I don't think it will be to much of a problem with the 4x4 online. The multiplayer is being promoted as a stop and pop strategy based team outing. Not a run and gun like HALO. To me this is cool, because 99% of all multiplayer seems to rely solely on that type of gameplay. I love it as much as the next guy, but i look forward to something different.
And if it does suck like you suspect it might, there is always Call of Duty 3. The multiplayer on that looks to be tweaked out like crazy. Check out the newWAR (http://media.xbox360.ign.com/media/801/801849/vids_1.html) mode in action. Saweeet!!!!

Well...I'm a little beyond pre-order. My copy has already been paid for.

Though I must say, I'm a little nervous about how the multiplayer will turn out. I'm hoping even though it's 4 on 4, it will be fun. If it's not...there's always the single player and co-op story (I think). Right?!

I can also really understand people's skepticism about the game. Hopefully there will be some reviews out for it early, so everyone will really know what to expect. If not...I'm sure you'll hear some detailed opinions on it, from some of the community members (myself included).<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

My guess if the limit to 8 players was related to performance it is most likely a rendering\graphics performance issue, and not a networking issue. So if people have played 8 player over lan and it was ok then I imagine over the internet shouldnt be any different that another 8 player MP game.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I honestly don't think it has anything to do with framerate issues. If a next-gen system can't handle more than eight player online action, then is it really next-gen?

If you look at the gametype descriptions, it's obvious that the creators don't want this to be a typical run-n-gun shooter. By limiting the # of players, it helps create more of a tactical shooter, with more emphasis on cooperation. If you have too many players on a team, it does tend to devolve into a free-for-all. Agree or disagree with their methods, but this does appear to be in keeping with their desire to reign in the style of online play.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It's as if they have intentionally run sandpaper over the surfaces so that you won't see how badly they are tearing. Wow, I mean wow. I am beyond disappointed. I'll play it, but it sure feels like all flash and no substance. I'm a bit to pissed at how much this looks like what gets dropped in a toilet, so I'll save my critiques for later. WAY later.

Pac, I'm was wondering what you thought of the graphics in Rainbow Six: Vegas (Not sure if you've played the demo yet or not)?

Since both Gears of War and Vegas are using the same graphics engine (the Unreal 3 Engine from Epic). You'll probably find the overall visuals and feel, is very similar. Though manipulated a little differently.

Then again...it is all personal preference.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

NOOOOOOOOOOO! rephrase that, best online CONSOLE shooter, yes im not gonna lie there but ANY other game....yeah im pretty sure unreal 2004 still holds that, What with its superb graphics (at the time of course and still holds true today) variety of vehicles, modes and weapons, a lot more fast paced,and the fact that you can create your own mods and levels so it never gets old.....Again overall ut2k4 still upholds that fps online "bar" it set when it released. But like i said consoles yes halo2 rains as the game to beat online, even though im sick of it, players and stats dont lie

....O and on the topic of GOW, i enjoy it, i mean its not the greatest game ever(and the matchmaking could be smoother) conceived but im having fun with it, Not big in the single player gaming due to it feels as if it were MEANT for coop but we're just having a blast going through coop and multiplayer wise, me bca, dread, nights and a few others have been playing the past two nights and imo it's fun as hell and i think thats all that matters.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

After having waited a few days, I finally got to play this game last night. And brace yourself - I have to concur with Borfase's opinion. I really wasn't terribly impressed with this game. Sure, the visuals are very nice - even on my non-HDTV set. And I really like the innovative cover-and-fire system. But other than that, it seems like any other linear shooter. Move from point to point, shoot some baddies, then move to the next point. Repeat. And even though the graphics are spectacular, they're also quite drab. I get that it's supposed to be a post-apocalyptical setting.

I did play a little multiplayer with Psyche and a few others. Given the game's elimination style MP, and the fact that I generally suck at shooters, this means that I spent much of the time on the sidelines watching everyone else play. I'll have to spend a little more time getting used to the various maps, and hopefully I'll be able to play a session where I last more than a minute.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

My opinion of this game doesn't really have much to do with the fact that I suck at FPS. Other than the new cover-and-fire system, and the awesome graphics, what does this game add that hasn't been brought before? At its core, it's still a linear-based shooter.

I didn't say the game sucked. I do like the game. I just don't consider it the Messiah that many people were proclaiming it to be. If I had to give it a score, I'd probably give it a 9 out of 10.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I've been playing this a bit for the last couple of nights. I haven't really noticed any tearing. Though I guess I haven't really been looking for it either. I did notice a little graphic tearing last night, while behind this one column though.

Pac, I'd be glad to play some co-op with you tonight, if you're up for it. Maybe you can point some stuff out and we can hopefully have some fun playing it as well.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Played some MP last night. Not gonna lie, had some serious fun but again after two hours or so I had no problem putting it down and never came back.

The all purpose A button is really annoying online and why in hell do games dont want you to jump. What is so wrong with jumping or crouching. If I see a point on top of a building let me try and jump up there. Could the sniper rifle be more sluggish?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Magiz,

I will play coop, and I am sure it will be super happy fun times because it will be with a human partner. I'm willing to conceed that part of my reaction to this game was it's billing as a killer app. It's average, at best. The demo for Rainbow is enough for me to diem it superior to GoW, and I found SC DA to be better than gears too. I am utterly amazed that this game was billed to be the game of the year.

GoW is wack-a-mole with guns and chainsaws.

I can't end with a better line than that.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I'll agree. It's not the greatest thing out there. Though it has been fun so far (mostly playing with other people). Though, I have still yet to try the multiplayer out. Which is why, I haven't really given my whole opinion of the game yet.

I'm sure it will be MUCH better then Double Agent's was. Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory had a far superior multiplayer. Double Agent's is the worst of the series and the problems/crashes, aren't helping it either. Dumbing down the gameplay was a bad move on their part. To me its multiplayer makes it the Lockdown/Critical Hour of the SC series (though the single player seems alright, still need to finish it).

Alright, I just played MP for the first time. It was fun, outside of the Chainsaw glitch that hung Mister Nutty out to dry. That, and to be fair, I saw some of the more advanced levels at Calyber's tonight. The rain effects in act 3 may have gotten me aroused. I will also conceed that killing the giant spider thingy was fun to spectate too.

I have waited until i played further before putting in my two cents,

Single Player: Rocks! The graphics though not the systems best are spectacular. They get even better as the game goes on. The action is top notch and the way they unvail tougher opponents as the game goes on is great! The cover feature is a bit sensative though. I try to run and end up going into cover sometimes. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Multiplayer: I have only played a few rounds so far. Mostly alot of fun except ROOFTOP That level blows in my opinion. For some reason i seem to get that map whenever i join a game. It would be nice to get a game with a group of people that i know so some teamwork would happen. I seem to get stuck with losers alot. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Just to clear up this bragging thing once and for all for whoever started it, I rock and you suck. So there.

Now, back to GOW.

I shoulda read the booklet because when my roomie and I started Co Op yesterday it erased my single player mode saved game (unless thats just what happens). Whatever. We started yesterday morning and finished it by the end of the day. Keep in mind that we were out of the apartment all freakin day. So I dunno, I was a little let down because I felt like they were all about these huge beasts that you get to fight, yet the one that I was looking forward to gettin it on with, was only in a cut scene near the very end. Guess I'll have to wait for GOW II for that one. Other than that, The online rocked when I was playing with my buddies. I can dig. Oh yes. I can dig.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Let's see which game is #1 on XBL in a month. I'm not a Halo fanboy - I like the game, but I really don't play it very often anymore - but there's no denying its universal appeal. GOW is enjoying a huge initial surge, and deservedly so. However, I think that eventually some people will begin to filter away. Rainbow Six and Lost Planet will be the next online contenders, and each of those games will take away from GOW's staying power.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

i think they had too much fun making them stereotypical macho men.
my dad overheard the dialogue and was like "i want to meet who writes this stuff."
that's when you know it's bad.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

grenade sticking is utter horsesh*t too


shotgunning someone that is rushing at you with a grenade doesn't stun them like when you are stunned with the chainsaw

I just made the realization that summersaulting around like Mary Lou Retton is an excelent way to evade attackers in MP. That is Lame in any language.

I have been planning on getting a Wii, but not until after Christmas. If this piece of dog**** is what MS is going to publish, I am accelerating my Wii timetable to whenever my profit sharing bonus is direct deposited into my account. Andy said (and I agree) that whom ever's team gets to the one good weapon on the screen will probably win the round. At this point, I'm only finishing the game so I can say I finished it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I don't have a World of Warcraft account, do you?
No, I have a life.

I'm glad to hear some different opinions about this game. It has clearly shown, it's not for everyone. Which I had previously expected. I was actually surprised by some people that bought it. Mostly because; I've been gaming with them for so long. It just didn't seem like a game, that they'd be into.

Many titles from Epic have been this way. We all have our tastes in gameplay. I have my fair share of issues with this title but, do have fun playing it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

yes, the MP maps just turn into races for the sniper rifles

the only good one is escalation because it's not symmetrical and has some strategy involved


and dave's phrase "this game has no soul" fits the bill perfectly

I have noticed, that its near impossible to camp in this game. Those who do, usually end up looking like meatloaf.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
