I'd imagine this game would be hard if you don't use the cover system whenever fighting...you did use cover right?

i think the game is cheaper now because theres a newer GOTY/Classics or whatever it is version with extra content out but i think the price for that version is a lot more than this.

whats cover fighting? im stuck on the bit where ur trying not to get bumped off the road while shooting each other

Wow you ARE a casual. Its where you use cover to protect yourself from fire. You press A to snap into cover (I think its A I forget thanks to Red Dead). Then you use LT to pop up and shoot, then duck back down before you get shot again.
Also make sure you reload quickly by watching the white bar just below the icon for your weapon. If you press RB when the slider hits the white line then you reload quicker and apparently your gun does more damage.

Not to brag but I don't find Gears campaign mode difficult at all, so maybe you aren't playing the way its meant to be played. If your doing it the Halo run-n-gun way then change tactics. It's all about patience.

Excellent deal by the way. Meaty campaign mode, the best co-op around. Also online Horde mode is much more fun that the brainless Call Of Duty deathmatches. If only it had host migration it would be perfect.

insane price and an awesome game, new update fixes the multiplayer side of things that put people off,especially with horde(you can now join a social game in progress) so if someone leaves other people join HOT! ;-)

If you're on the truck part its easiest to use the fixed gun on the elevated platform, you can cower up there picking off enemies until right near the end of the section where you'll have to run down to shoot the enemy driver.

Its tricky but do-able.

we're all rooting for you!

Picked one up thanks!

great great game. once you get used to it it is dead easy on normal imo, but still hard on insane.

stick with it.

you will lose out a little getting this, ie chances are flashback map codes will be used BUT you could get the all fronts pack for 800 ponts which gives you all the dlc for this game ever made (BUT bear in mind you can get the GOTY for 10 quid new if you look around, with that in mind i will not vote either way)

PS social mode is only available to those with GOTY or all fronts pack. social mode imo is essential for a quick game as you do not have to wait for a full team etc.

This is instore too seen it sunday in kirkcaldy

This has just convinced me to go back on this game! I bought it on release day and haven't played it for ages, I used to be awesome online!

What mode do you have it on? I've completed Gears 1 on Insane on my own and just finished Gears 2 on normal (about to do an Insane run now since I only picked this up last week for £4.99)
As others have said just use the gun at the front to kill off most things then run down and shoot the driver of the other truck.
If you still get stuck I'm sure someone can help you through co-op.

Voted cold.

Posted this last week, I actually picked the 'Game of the Year' edition from Game in Middlesbrough and get this...the code for all the extra maps HAD NOT been used! And I had £2.50 on my Game Reward card so I ended up paying £2.49!!

Bargain of the year!!!

Still stuck on casual at Desperation:Pale horse on Gears 1. I've literally emptied all my ammo on General Raam. Tried all kinds of tactics. Looked at youtube for clues but my Ramm isn't like theirs..they manage to get the krill off him and use the longshot. I don't even manage to get all my torq bow shots away before he's walking around my shelter (the one you start at) to mince me pdq.

But I'm still learning.

oh and voted cold because I got this as a present.

It was £3.99 the other night. They put the price of a load of the pre owned stuf up as it was obviously way too cheap, I picked up quite a few games at £1.99 @ £2.99.

erm..

i was walking down the street and a tramp offered me the limited game of the year edition for 99p....voted cold.

Foxxes..bargain of the year!! that's a hot deal! (_;)

Note your quotes are not in the correct time sequence (quite important that!). Reverse them and then consider there may have been someone earlier than you to be sarcastic (_;)

bought this on saturday from the game in manchester, looked through like 4 games though, loads had scratches or laser burn

finished on insane the other day. Both games are worth playing through once, online wasnt for me

Just paid £7.50 for this on ebay, should always check here first, heat added

My dad bought me a porsche which means this game costs £4.99 more than a car!! Obviously gonna vote cold for this reason.

Should I play the FIRST GOW first before I play this?

Should I play the FIRST GOW first before I play this?


i dont think its really necessary too if im honest. on another note, you can get the the first one of it pre owned at the same place for only £2.99. so £7.98 for both cannot be sneezed at

Yeah there is some retarded cold voting going on! Co-Op is a blast though, get this game bought!

And as if by magic I killed Raam last night. I didn't realise he was the so-called end boss.
For whoever it was above still on this game this is how I did it: Torq bows first then close up I managed to get 2 hits with grenades then when he rounded my cover I stood up and shotgunned him to the head real quick. Looked like he couldn't open up on me because of my fire.

One last thing to those quoting me about the 'present' I was just a parody of the previous poster having a better deal and voting this cold because they covered 50% of their deal costs with a rewards card.
