The camera person gets their act together after a minute or so, but the person playing REALLY sucks.  Try to enjoy anyway.

I'm really looking forward to Horde mode and it's one of the things that has started to get my excited for Gears 2. Too bad this video isn't that great in quality, but at least it gives some idea to how things will play out. Reminds me a bit of the challenge mode or whatever it was called from the Timesplitters games...

It was pretty frustrating to watch him play. Still though, it looks sooo good!

I could see it getting real tense after the first few waves, with locust after locust coming at you.

This mode looks awesome. I can see me and my buddies playing this for a long time. Even the bad quality of the video and the actual player didn't deter me.

Why do people who get to play new demos suck so bad at them? Remember the MGS4 demo videos? We could never get a good player until Kojima came out and played it himself.

I think the mode itself looks really fun,however it would be nice if all those score calculations weren't coming up on the screen after every way,and instead only at the end when you finally die. Kind of slows down everything 10 seconds everytime you get through a wave.

Awesome video, thanks. This mode will likely be one of my favourites, consistently trying to beat my score with friends. But I wonder, can you play Horde solo? Or does it have to be 2-5 players? Of course it'll be better with more than one player, but it's nice to have a quick warm-up before matches sometimes.

Gah, sometimes I think a license should be required to hold a camera. -_-

A snowy environment? Nice. [*Waits for someone to compare it to Lost Planet*]  Horde mode looks like it will be tons of fun! :D

The mode looks awesome, but damn... I had to quit seeing the clip halfway through because of the horrible camera and lack of skills had by the player. Still I gotta ditto what everyone else said about being stoked about this game. Really looking forward to GoW2. This is the first time EVER I have been looking forward to a shooter and the E3 demo didnt make it any better :D
