Sounds like you only have an issue with multiplayer, which, I agree is total ass. The single player, however, is epic and should be experienced by anyone who owns an Xbox 360. It's THAT good.

basically.  Single player is fine.  not generally crazy about FPS single players (but I do like some), but it's fun.  Just hated the boss battle with that staff twirling guy.  he chops down column that will rotate while falling?  Bullshit

wow - there are posts in this thread that are, well, embarassing frankly.  Gears 2 has bugs, so does every console release since they added internet connectivity as standard.  Epic are fixing the bugs that make the game "awful".  It is a good game that has improved on the original in many ways.  Then I don't really enjoy online MP that much so the bugs are irrelevant to me.

I found a solution to all this "can't find games in less than 10 minutes!" thing. I found 4 other people having that problem, and now we just roll as a party of 5 all the time. 2 minutes max searching for another team.

"What are you smoking? In all seriousness, I'm wondering. Because to say that the game is broken because of bugs alludes to one of two things:

so I am guessing that big rigs is still an okay game?
just a few bugs..
dont break a game...
nope.

No joke! I love this game even though it does have some bugs. To me it's not that huge of a deal especially when most of the time it's very playable. Plus, they are patching it this month so all this will be a moot point anyway.
#63 Posted by Darknesszora (41 posts) -

i played the first gears and it was nothing special, very average

so i have no reason to play gears 2

It takes no skill online. It's so damn easy.

Epic went Nintendo like...

i loved gears 2 but after a month i found myself getting back 2 cod4.
it just failed to live up to everyone's expectations a lot like RSV2
 

#68 Posted by avengedxsniper (130 posts) -

Every game has some bugs when it first comes out. Take Halo 2 for example. When it first came out the matchmaking took forever. Im pretty sure Epic is planing to fix the bugs here soon with an update.

#69 Posted by TwoOneFive (9459 posts) -

i agree man, i mean, the SP is great, but online stinks. can't believe people inlude gears 2 online in their online games of the year awards. hell even world at war is practically broken to me. fuckin AWEFUL spawning.

But there's a huge difference.  Halo 2 was much faster and was rather constant and once you got into a game it was great.  It was also the very beggining for xbox live (basically).  This is the 360, xbl isn't anything new, and they already did gears 1 which worked better.

gears 2 MP is like, highly awesome

all it needs is a team doubles playlist!!! (2vs2). I can't imagine how great that would be in gears 2 with specially adapted wepaon placement (

#73 Edited by Pibo47 (3166 posts) -

Gears 2 is fucking awesome. And i dont get what all the MP complaints are about, always been great for me. Gears 2 in everyway is better than gears 1, and most others game for that matter.

#74 Posted by jNerd (2008 posts) -

I've been saying that since that mofo came out. Fuck Geow2

#75 Posted by destro (248 posts) -

Yeah that first sentence made no sense at all. "It's a pretty decent game, but seriously, gears 2 is awful." You=retarded

#76 Posted by TeflonBilly (4713 posts) -

I liked Gears 2, but have absolutely no interest in going back for the MP. Which was either impossible to get a match in or just not fun when I finally got to play.
I should give Horde mode another chance though, it was fun the two times I played it, but backlog's got me swamped and now FEAR2 and Killzone 2 are around the corner. I don't need to shoot even more things.

SmugDarkloser has a point. I was hooked on gears1 mp and couldnt get off of it for months. I was over gears2 mp in a matter of weeks. It fucking sucks, there are so many small annoying things wrong with it, that I cant even bring myself to waste time with it. You dont have to be a dick just because you dont agree with someones opinion.

I know the MP just isn't the same. They seem to have carried over everything that made the first one a success and somehow made it worse and buggier. I actually plan to sell Gears 2 this week. But just because of some minor flaws doesn't mean it should be the category of "awful." There are a lot of things that Gears 2 does better artistically, graphically, and the campaign. The story sure is mediocre, and you don't really feel like you have done anything.

Gears 2 shipped before it was ready... The MP bugs wreck that part of the game. What I find most insulting about the whole thing, is that MS had the edacity to release a map pack before they fixed all the bugs.

#84 Posted by Verdugo (2001 posts) -

Awful?

mmmm, nah. Gears 2 is fun as hell in my opinion.

#85 Posted by crunchUK (5963 posts) -

i luv what they did with the hammerbust SO MUCH it's like an extension of my mind...

Very beginning of live? come on kid Live was launching November of 2002 and Halo 2 came out in November 2004.

I hate GeoW and GeoW 2, such dissapointments. Stupid story, stupid characters, stupid dialogue, somewhat clunky controls, unimaginative weapons, and generic environments with all the typical apocalyptic color spectrum.

It's no better or more original than Resistance or Killzone, just another apocalyptic/war shooter.

I don't know whether to respond to this or not. Seems like bait to me.

Think what you will, I have no need for attention, I just said GeoW pales in comparison to what I expected it to be and what the reviewers said. It's simply generic.

i wouldnt say GOW2 is awful.
Its not very good thats for sure.

I did not like it much at all.

You completely contradicted yourself with that statement.
#94 Posted by grundel (22 posts) -

the game is fine, I loved it.  The roommate and I went back to replay GoW1 after we had beaten 2 and I felt like GoW2 played smoother and was overall more fun.  The online aspect, though it has a few bugs does not ruin the entire game, I never really have problems finding games though, maybe I have just been lucky in the past, who knows.

Damn, I barely even talk about that on these forums much.  Why do people hang onto single threads?  I swear, there was a thread that stayed on the front page for like a month and a whole bunch of people thought I kept on making these threads.  Same goes with this one, it's kind of old

Your whiny attitude is "kind of old". You should turn your suck knob down there Smug. It looks as if you got it cranked all the way to 10......wait, you somehow made it go to 11. Props to you sir. You broke the suck knob with your inane suck.
