The Beta was awesome....plain and simple. Despite everyone crying about certain weapons,I think they all balance eachother out very nicely. The game runs smooth, the graphics are great (and its only a beta), and after going back to GOW2, I realize what a
great game GOW3 is going to be. My only big complaint is the jumping over cover kick, its way too inconsistent/cheap
I like Gears 3. i agree with Lamp in that the weapons are fine, it just come down to the skill of the player. I have seen players rock with the gnasher and with the SOS. Some players use both lol. There are going to be different opinions especially when
it come to the new and old weapons. I also agree that the mantel kick or whatever it called needs some tweeking, i was so tired of gettin stuck on top of things and not being able to get a constant kick. Also I think that the 'stun' time it too long befor
you reagin your footing lol. I could talk about more but I think that sums it up.
Sorry, these new forums won't let me connect the link (probably because they're terrible). So if you care enough, it's the thread titled "How was YOUR beta experience?", and it has 3 or 4 pages of posts about the opinions of
EDIT: It is indeed a problem with the forums. The provided link creation tool is changing the URL into something that doesn't exist, and it won't allow me to do it manually. So until they fix that, the link (possibly along
with all links created here) is going to be broken.
When I had the beta I thought it was good, definatley and improvement from gow2, still needs some tweeks ( SO / Retro ) but it was shaping up to be a very good game. When the beta ended and I went back to gow2 I realised how good gow3 is. It is a great game
( but I would like some of the weapons tweaked )
The physics are the best improvement from GOW2. Player movement is so fluid. The heavy periods of graphic intensive battle do not lag the box like GOW2 did. The weapons are fairly well balanced and/or will be improved for the production launch. People complain
about the BDS, for example however in GOW2 you had to get fairly close for a shotgun battle so previous players thing the DBS is overpowered. In RL a DBS will annihilate you. The maps and environments were beautiful. They are laid out for tram play and strategy.
It is unfortunate that few people play the team game and work together. Waiting til September will be very painful.
