    I'm gonna take heat for this one ...

    ... I just don't find Gears all that fun, so please those of you who do enlighten me ...


    I played all the way through the first one and thought it was too short, repetitive, and all around "so-so". So I said to myself, "Yossarian, you're probably not giving this game a fair shake, why don't you try the much talked up multiplayer "Ok I said". So I jumped on Xbox Live and played for 2 hours all the time trying to figure out why everyone thought the online experience was the reason this game had "staying power". IDK I guess for one I've never cared much for third person shooters (stupid I know, I hated Lost Planet as well) and maybe I was too infatuated with Halo 2 at the time. I'm writing all this because I'm trying to figure out whether I should rent Gears 2 and see if I was just being a douche.

    Eh...probably need to. I know a lot of Halo 'nerds' that bashed gears for a while, so I played Halo and it was complete crap vs gears as far as multiplayer goes. Halo is the most over rated game ever IMO though. Never understood what people liked about it other than the music and theatrics.

    I enjoy Gears (so far). The controls take a little to get used to (probably being X-Box controller as well vs PS3 I am used too.

    If you didnt like Gears 1, dont waste your time. The multiplayer has expanded a little and went a little more the HALO way with Rank, ect ect. BUT honestly, your one of the first few who didnt find the online experince great. There are people I know, who played Gears 1 ONLINE alot all the way up until Gears 2 came out. Halo was fun, but seemed to "kiddy" to me. Gears is more adult....

    ^yeah, thats me. The little plastic looking guys, silly looking bad guys, and no damage seen when you shoot someone. Just too cartoonish for me.
    You should probably rent gears 2 Yos, and just see if you were being too hard on it at first. Never know, you may enjoy it more now.

    I love it....this is pointless. I am glad I have a PS3, Wii, and 360. I am still playing multiplayer online pretty much daily.
