I'm barley into the game as it is (2nd or 3rd checkpoint) and already it has surpassed Gears Of War 2. The cut scenes are kick ass awesome! Love it. I'm sucked into the story.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! :)

That Tapeworm Mission was gnarly....or nasty. I haven't decided yet. But getting swallowed by a worm and then having to fight your way out was fun.  ;D

Pretty cool cut scene with Dom and Maria. Sad, but cool. Very cinematic.

If your at the crane part.... you aren't even in the same ball park as being done.

I'm actually happy that I'm nowhere close to being finished. I want this game to go on forever and ever, truth be told.  ;D

I actually don't remember the final boss fight but do remember its not as iratatingly difficult as the Raam fight from Gears 1.

Oh ok my mistake. Closure IS the last chapter. Brumak ride isn't the end though. Very close though

That Brumak ride was hella fun, taking down the 3 pillars inside the cave. Now, I'm bummed that it's getting close to the end of the game. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/HTL_frown.gif)

And done.

I will say that the final boss fight was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to easy using the Hammer Of Dawn. It's like I didn't even have to try at all in order to kill the beast. As for the game itself, that was one hell of a ride. Looking forward to trying my hand on **** level. Also, the story, especially the cut scenes are amazing. Love it.

Bring on Gears Or War 3!!!

And now...I can finally go and watch the game reviews for this one because I have avoided them for spoiler reasons.

Replaying the game at the 2nd level. Can anyone confirm if I am indeed seeing additional content now that it's a harder level? And if I play thru each additional level will their be even more content? Right now, just playing thru this level I'm seeing stuff I didn't see on Casual Level.

Define "stuff". The game on each difficulty level is exactly the same except the enemies are tougher.

Extended game play that didn't exist my first go around. Because there is no doubt in my mind of a handful of "stuff" that was not there on Casual Level. It was so in my face new, that I couldn't help but notice it wasn't there the first time.

Hmmm maybe it was stuff you just missed in the first go round because theres nothing new in each additional difficulty level that I'm aware of. Just much tougher enemies.

Well my reaction was like "Oh, they cut stuff out of Casual Level to make it quicker, i.e. easier to get through". That was my thought.

I jumped back onto GoW2 so that I could finish the campaign on Normal Difficulty for 50 Achievement Points. Now heading back over to GoW3 for some Horde 2.0.
