uhhh... I don't.

The fact that the guy gave gears of war, a game which possesses what might just be the shittiest story in gaming, the point for story-line completely diminishes the rest of the video.

Honestly, the characters introduced in gears 2 did not help to "propel the story." They were terrible characters that had no development and ended up feeling like wastes of time.

On the side of graphics, while Unreal Engine 3 may be more powerful, halo definitely has better visuals. Still, in terms of power, Gears wins the graphics points.

Gears 2 is a few years older though so the graphics would be better.





Gears 2 is pretty much the same thing as Gears 1 with new maps and a few different weapons.


More than a few people got bored with this game fast.

The only thing that was shit was the story, the campaign itself wasn't even that bad...

I didn't like it. It was poorly paced and repetitive.

I have to say GOW2 beats halo 3. Maybe not storywise but better in everything else.

Like COD4 to WaW, GOW2 is just GOW with an awesome survival game thrown in (something that would have been better off as DLC for the first game). Halo had a better storyline... and I think the gameplay is better (especially with the ability to use so many custom games on forged maps). Plus, the control scheme is much more comfortable. In the end, I choose Halo.

Gears has a few ups...
The ability to plant grenades, and just the grenades themselves are better.
The fact that you have to take cover is much better, as it makes you have to think strategy.
Also, it takes much more skill with a lot more of the weapons than the point-and-shoot Halo system.
They're both fun-games, I'm not even going to think of either Campaign.

Halo isn't point and shoot unless you're playing on normal/easy

Halo 3's wasn't that good either

I'd probably give that point to Gears as well.

I thought Halo's story was better than Gears'.

Halo's story was far more nonsensical than Gears.

Gears had some epic moment, Halo....tried to....

halo had some pretty epic moments... although most of them were already shown in vids Razz

I'm gonna go with Halo on account that I couldn't subject myself to Gears long enough to complete it. Very repetitive gameplay, with no sense of progression in the story (in one or two, though one is forgiven because it was fun when new).
