Hulk and friends play through campaign immediately, then we go online to SMASH!

Play through campaign, Share my thought on forums and then start playing online.

#4 Posted by KindGalaxy (429 posts) -

Actually want to see if they can explain the ending in Gears 1 well enough so, campaign first.

#5 Posted by Blu_Magic (2021 posts) -

I'm going to go straight online with a bunch of friends. I'll start the campaign the next day.

Campaign.

#7 Posted by DorianBlack (311 posts) -

Undecided, I don't really care for the story all that much so maybe multiplayer first. Also would like to enjoy the time without 10 year olds for as long as I can.

#8 Posted by PerryVandell (2103 posts) -

I'll play the campaign co-op online with a friend. I played Gears 1 first on co-op with a friend and damn that was awesome!

#9 Posted by Vlademir (1029 posts) -

I'll be going through the campaign at least once before I go online. Once on normal and then maybe again on w/e the hardest difficulty is.

Campaign first

Campaign first because i am sure some little cunt will be spouting spoilers about the story and such the like.
#12 Posted by Zalzargahoughanstine (56 posts) -

I always play through the campaign in a game first it's a good warm up for the multiplayer so you don't look like such a noob.

#13 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

Always have to do some campaign first.

#14 Posted by Subway (971 posts) -

Start with co-op campaign, finish it on hardcore, then insane, then start online. (not all in one day mind you.)

#15 Posted by L (1681 posts) -

Campaign is my priority.

#16 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

It depends on whether I have some friends to run through the campaign with that night. If not, I will jump right into some multiplayer goodness.

I'll probably play through the campaign first.  3 of my roommates have 360's as well so we'll probably all co-op it first.  Then, of course, it's right to online.  The game is probably going to be fairly short, longer than Gears 1 but still short, it shouldn't take long to beat it so I won't be to far behind on the learning curve for online.

campaign, You have to go to that first

#19 Posted by igpx407 (75 posts) -

I just hope I will have someone to do co-op with. :/

Single player only for me. I already had enough with the online of the first game, this one looks too much of the same. I'm not paying for XBLG just to play this online cuz i hardly play my 360. I mostly play on my PS3.

#22 Posted by c1337us (5751 posts) -

I dont play much online at all as it is. I doubt I will go online for this game at all, I think I'll be sticking to the campaign.

#23 Posted by OGCartman (4354 posts) -

Campaign first and try to whore some achievement points

#26 Posted by Sylosis (62 posts) -

I'll complete the campaign twice first with two different people, and with at least one of the play throughs on the hardest difficulty, whether it's 'Insane' or not

#27 Posted by Carmel_Chewy (323 posts) -

Man, Horde mode sounds awesome. With the addition of that and the tweaks made to the multiplayer, I think I'll be spending a lot more time on Gears 2 than the original.(if that's even possible. =p)

That's essentially what I do. On the second play through it'll likely be on the hardest difficulty and with a friend.

Definitely to the campaign mode, I must see the new levels Cliff Bleszinski was discussing in various interviews.
#38 Posted by HoNgKoNgPh0oEy (1481 posts) -

#39 Posted by Shawn (3825 posts) -

This.
#41 Posted by AcidicVision (38 posts) -

Campaign first. Want to get a grasp on the new mechanics before I jump online. I was also left so unsatisfied with the original gears ending that I want to get some bit of a damn story line.

#42 Posted by Leon31 (125 posts) -

Campaign first, I'll try the online but if it's starts turning into what Gears online is now, I doubt it. I'd rather not deal with idiots again.

#43 Posted by suneku (2997 posts) -

I'll play co-op campaign first, because these types of games I'd rather play campaign with someone else.

You could just mute them or better yet, play with people you know.

Campaign by myself, Campaign with my friend afterwards on harder difficulty. Horde 5 player Co op mode. After I am done all that, then I will go online to get my ass kicked.

Ah man I forgot all about Horde mode. I guess I'll play that first.

Campaign on Hardcore with a friend.

#49 Posted by Peacemaker (1104 posts) -

I usually always play the campaign first, I may not finish before playing online but I always play it first.

#50 Posted by ajarbuckle (173 posts) -
