I personally dislike Gears of Wars graphical style. Just my personal opinion. Oddly enough, I like UT3 (have it on my laptop) and it's incredibly similar. Not sure what the difference is, but I don't like it. I played the first one quite a bit and I'll undoubtedly play the sequel, but let's not start the "if only NG looked like this" trash. Gears isn't locked at 60 fps, last I checked. Wink

Im not familiar with technical requirements in terms of graphics. So do you wanna say that games with 60 fps cannot have graphics that games with 30 fps have??? Do I get you???

Generally, the lower the framerate, the more taxing the engine is. Unreal Engine 3 can spit out some nice looking graphics and run fairly smooth, but there is a trade off. Also, there's a ton going on in NG2 and it stays nice and steady at 60 fps. It's hard to explain without being too technical.

Ninja Gaiden II looks good but the only thing lacking is a great lighting technique like the one in Gears 2

True, but NG2 has awesome colours, where as GoW stays to 1 blue, 1 red and a million different whites, greys and blacks. Razz

I never really got into the Gears craze. Although i thought it was a great game. I can't wait for the 2nd though, it looks (even at such an early point in it's development) as if they have taken the 1st game and shoved a sh!tload more WIN in there. Fantastic. Cool
