The guys at 1UP – along with other big (Ed: are you implying we ain’t big?) gaming sites – got to preview Gears of War 2’s multi-player. After taking a jab at Cliff Blezinski and Epic’s “Bigger, better and more bad-ass” played out motif, they confirm that it is indeed, to an extent, all of the above.

More noteworthy nuggets from the article include:

“A lot of new gameplay changes not only make a visceral game even more visceral (thus the “badder” part of the equation here), but they just plain make sense, too.” and

“Some weapons now have “stopping power,” which the developers put in specifically to stop the silly antics Gears 1 players have resorted to”.

Check it out. A nice read if you’re a fan of the series (hey, it’s a nice read even if you are not). Oh, they have the first multi-player videos up, too!

  • Edit: Lol I see 1UP took heed of Cliffy’s request to be referred to as Cliff Bleszinski and not Cliffy B. Pity.

    @ Gamer: Not really 🙂 . I’m actually typing up a lengthy feature/dissertation on Metal Gear Solid 4 right now for the site. Should be up in the next two days or so.

    @ Ed: Now, now, editor, we’ve never been ones for tooting our own horns, have we? We at Lazygamer are but humble goliaths 😉 .

  • The accompanying video is up on Gamevideos. Some of the new stuff looks wicked. The torque bow execution move is brutal!

  • It is a brilliant video. I really like the lobby view and sweeping camera moves – a major improvement on the over the shoulder view or 4 static camera angles per map in Gears 1.
