Will you jump into the campaign (at what difficulty) or go into the multiplayer? For me, it will be the campaign. As much as I love the multiplayer, I feel I would get a better grip of the title by going through the campaign at least once.

I would play the campaign for a couple of hours and then try some multiplayer with my friends.

#3 Posted by sdodd02 (722 posts) -

play through the campaign then straight to multiplayer.

Co-op story, then i'll check out horde, then multiplayer.

#5 Posted by Frostmane (56 posts) -

Maybe start the campaign solo but most likely Coop on Hardcore. Or just do Insane first this time. Though I may have to play through twice to get the Dom achievements (if there are any). Yeah. Campaign for life.

I'll jump into co-op with my brother on hardcore.

After we beat the game [probably the next day or the day after], we'll most likely try the campaign again on insane.

I have to start the campaign first, then I'll jump online and start roasting some asses.

PS... The Flamethrower is going to dominate all!

#10 Posted by Roybot (34 posts) -

Probably co-op campaign on "casual" then move on to try out "horde" then a second run of the campaign but on a harder difficulty.

#11 Posted by Why_So_Serious (803 posts) -

First priority. Beat campaign twice so I get a feel for controls and know the story.

#12 Posted by Wolverine (4281 posts) -

You have to unlock insane, by playing hardcore I think. If I remember right you do.

I will probably load it up and play it. Probably won't stop playing it for the first couple of hours. Then bed.

#16 Posted by Zaxex (586 posts) -

Co-op campaign on their equivilent of medium most likely. Or solo if my friend can't get the game day 1 lol. Then most likely the lure of online will rear it's head.

co-op with my friend and then we go own in multiplayer

#18 Posted by Bennyishere (1685 posts) -

Do the campaign on Hardcore, then do it on the hardest setting over co-op with my best friend. I'm not a fan of competitive multiplayer besides racers, but I might try it out if I get some buddies along with me.

#21 Posted by darthzew (304 posts) -

I'll probably play through the campaign in one sitting with only potty and potato chip breaks. 

#22 Posted by Aaron_G (1615 posts) -

Cry at its site, and then start playing ;)

#23 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

I'll play campaign on the hardest setting, and then move to multiplayer.

#24 Edited by VerizonWarrior (9 posts) -

I'll try the codes first so I get through the story, then play at my leisure to really soak the game in!

#25 Posted by ThumbsUpMaster (6 posts) -

I'll start out by playing single player but knowing my friends, I'll be invited to a multiplayer match a few minutes after I start campaign.

#26 Posted by Bladefire (214 posts) -

Co op on insane with my friend, we beat Gears 1 on insane in like 7 maybe 8 hours.

#27 Posted by Blu_Magic (2021 posts) -

I'll jump straight into multiplayer with a bunch of friends. I'll start the campaign the next day.

#28 Posted by Batman (1016 posts) -

#31 Posted by optimusprime223 (399 posts) -

always the campaign first, I love the story in alot of games so I complete that first then move into multiplayer, if i do at all...

#32 Posted by Xeros606 (545 posts) -

somewhere between "jizz all over the case" and  "brush my teeth".

#33 Posted by DorianBlack (311 posts) -

If my friends all get it on launch then probably multiplayer, if not then I'll go solo with campaign. I hate playing GOW multiplayer by myself, worst community in gaming.

#34 Posted by nezze00 (144 posts) -

I would either play Singleplayer Co-op with a friend, or I would jump into an AI Bot match and shoot some dudes. I <3 Bots! :]

#35 Posted by joshuapohl (43 posts) -

I always go through the campaign first before I start the multiplayer. I will probably play it on whatever setting is medium or normal. Hopefully Gears 2 will be a little more challenging than Gears 1.

Injure Myself In Multiplayer So I Can Crawl Around And Have A Criple Fight With Someone

#41 Posted by Peacemaker (1104 posts) -

I usually always play the story mode a game before multiplayer so I will probably do that. 

#42 Posted by Brickz187 (6 posts) -

I would probally jump str8 into the multiplayer with all my friends. I usually play the campaign firdt, but this is Gears 2, multiplayer is where it's at.

#43 Posted by epic_pets (1339 posts) -

Ill play online first now

#44 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

Well first off, I would find someway to steady my breathing and calm myself from the extreme excitement. Then I will flip through all of the menus and screens, as well as watching the idle trailer at least once. Then I will hop straight into the campaign and I refuse to touch multiplayer until I beat the campaign.

#45 Posted by Psynapse (1064 posts) -

Possibly take a few days off work and play through the campaign with a mate. Then off to multiplayer ;)

#46 Posted by BlackSuitAndTie9 (289 posts) -
