Gears of War 2 Bad Points

Posted by boko52 (36 posts) -

Well overall the game was pretty good, the graphics are amazing, very realistec and very detailed. The Ai are much more smarter than in the old game. The storyline in my opinion was brilliant and very well done, i had a lot of mixed emotions through the game. The only thing is the game is quite glitchy which i hope will be fixed in a patch. I sometimes roll and i get stuck on top of a wall or in a wall or in mid air unable to move at all.

In multiplayer the chainsaw is bugged to hell and way overpowered, they seem to be able to reach someone who rolls out of the way or even is meters away from the chainsawer, also the stopping power is pretty bugged and most of the time doesnt work, mostly on people using the chainsaw.

The shotgun has been nerfed to hell, people didn't like the people running in circles with a shotgun but i thought it was pretty fun and when you got good at it, it was easy to do and it wasnt just luck as lots of people say. many times i have stood right behind someone shotgunning them about 2 - 3 times and they havent died in one, which is pretty messed up.

Also the maps seem a lot more complicated than before. Before you would have spawns on each side of the map and weapons would be easy to find now oyu spawn all around in random places weapon spawns are pretty complicated and half of the maps i still cant find my way around.

Yes also the matchmaking im sure i dont have to go into that.

The weapons also seem to bug sometimes, i sometimes shoot people with a torque or boom shot and it  hits them or in the boomshots case lands right next to them but doesnt do anything.

The cover system can mess up easily now many times ive tried to climb over somthing to find myself being launched one direction into (most of the time) Razor Hail.

Finally im still pissed of the Theron Palace Guards werent playable in multiplayer --.--


thats all for now :/

I enjoyed the game as well.  I only wish there was a little more to the story.  Yes, they plan on making more Gears of War games, but I feel like GoW 2 didn't really tell you much more than the first game.  They embellished maybe a few things and hinted at the origins of the Locust, but not much beyond that.  I thought the gameplay was solid and fun.  Unfortunately I haven't experienced online play yet as my college network will not allow me to connect to other people, so my complaints are pointed towards single player.

The major problem that I have with the game is the ending of the single player campaign, it was very underwhelming.  For me it was like Halo 2 all over again, you beat the final "boss" and you didn't even realize it.  I easily hit the Brumak with the Hammer of Dawn three times and it was over.  I expected a little more of an "epic" ending, or at least some sort of challenge.

Overall I am a big fan of the Gears of War franchise and I am in no way saying that GoW 2 is mediocre.  It is a great game that is very exciting and fun to play and a game that I recommend everyone play.

Yeah i totally agree with you, it slightly told a bit of the story but mostly a lot of things went unanswered again, i thought that the whole brumak fight was not really a satisfying last boss as you would expect a big skirmish with Skorge again or maybe someone else like you did with raam in number one. Also on insane the brumak fight is random i hit it perfectly everytime but randomly died lol next attempt did it again n i killed it wtf?
