I sadly traded my copy of Gears in a while back and am super hyped for gears 2. Does anyone know if the Refresh version is really worth it or should i just buy pre owned-game. I would really like to play it again to catch up on the story(laugh).
Gears Refresh worth it?
Depends on the price disparity between a used copy and the refresh. New is always nice, but the actual game content is the same for both, since you can download the map packs that are on the refresh free off Live. If buying used is any substantial savings, go with that.
I'm still playing Gears to this day, although admittedly I see less of my Xbox 360 nower days, so every time I load it up it feels fresh. Well... maybe not so much now but it's still cool. I'm sure a lot of people will be playing the first Gears in the run up to Gears 2 so they're all prepared to jump right into multi-player and earn some points. I know I will. Perhaps with a gold plated Lancer!
"Thanks for the replies guys. Do people still play online."It's still one of the most played games on Live -- Just wait for Gears 2 though... since they're improving and enhancing the multiplayer a ton and there's no real deep story in the single-player I see no reason to buy it..
Isn't the new Gears 1 just the original game and all of the maps you can get for free over live for 10$ more btw?
Its still a very popular game online, Friday night 'Beers and Gears' in Australia is still a fairly popular time to jump on and get some easy frags against the other players which may have just had a few too many to aim their Torque Bow properly ;).
I still love getting on and having a stuff around with my mates. Its worth a buy in my opinion, it was the first game that I bought when I got my 360 and until G2 comes out it will still be the most played one, although i'm having abit of fun with Burnout: Paradise at the moment. :P
