Got the Gears triple pack, and man are these games bad.
Gears 1 is pretty much a paperweight aside from the story due to the fact there's only a handful still online and the fact that most people are either boosters, glitchers or have been playing for years and are 100% impossible to counter (that and the hideous lag), so that's kinda sucky.
Gears 2 however, is just horrid. The game isn't really laggy, it's just it's so broken. The two **** rifles are absolute trash, so most fights just devolve into a bunch of huge grunting men rolling around each other shooting the shotgun, which brings me to my next complaint. The shotgun. It's basically 100% luck, since you shoot and shoot and shoot, and sometimes your bullets just go right through them, and they can down you in just one from twice the range you were firing, making the game almost 100% based upon luck/connection. The game would be decent if they'd just fix up the weapon balance (IE: Make the make a cover based firefight shooter like it was intended to be instead of HRNG HRNG HRNG CLANK CLANK BOOM acrobatics simulator), But still.
Which brings me to my point, Is Gears 3 going to be good? I hear some people have played Gears 1/2 and hated it, But tried the beta and loved it. Is that true?
(PS: Does anybody else kinda dislike Gears 1/2 like I do? Just wondering if I'm not alone here ;_;)
(PS.2: I can't remember, But didn't that Cliff Blezenski guy admit they f'ed up Gears 2 in an interview or something?)
