Last night I finished the co-op campaign on the Epic title Gears of War 2 and I have to say it was quite a wild ride.
The challenge with most co-op games I've played is making sure there is enough for both the players to do simultaneously throughout the game. This was something Gears2 had no difficulty doing with many challenges having one player manning large weaponry while the other responsible for the perfunctory hitting of switches etc. At times though the most challenging tasks weren't related the A.I. or the enemies but the communication going on with the person sitting right next to you. Obstacles that require coordinated moves for instance seemed to give my friend and I a lot of difficulty. Even after talking about what needed to be done we ended up doing something that lead to our untimely demise yet again.
So all in all I give the co-op mode of Gears of War 2 a hearty four thumbs up! For a interesting story-line, stunning character design (some of the bosses in the game look amazing), decent gameplay and the Soundtrack was good too!
While I liked the voice-over acting done in the game, at times I thought there was just too much of it that seemed the same making the characters seem somewhat one dimensional. Though I'm sure my take is skewed due to the fact that the number of cut scenes in this game (there are a ton of them) made the plot less like a video game and more like a movie experience.
I was a bit surprised that the game ended where and when it did. But now Im just gonna have to go back and play it on Insane difficulty mode!
so Im in the market for a headset and was wondering if any of the good people who read dtoid might be able to give me some advice......ok so the rest of you can give me advice as well.
I initially thought the wired headset was the way to go, as its been established and typically tried and true technology is cheaper. But several knowledgeable folks have claimed the wireless headset is heralding a new age for online gaming connectivity without the braided constraints.
So I ask you! Have you every used the wireless headsets? what the advantages/disadvantages? Since I'm thinking about brain cancer avoidance as well, are there any bluetooth enabled wireless headsets that I could use with my cellphone as well?
