now I'm not talking about graphics because gears 2 cleary is better, what i mean is with gears 2 epic increased their colour pallette and went with a destroyed beauty theme and hollywood lighting as they call it as opposed to the more harsh realistic lighting and gritty presentation in gears 1 so i would like to know which one of the two everyone else prefers? personally i prefer gears 1 because it feels more like gears and sometimes in gears 2 due to the lighting/ brighter presentation character models can sometimes have that plastic sheen on them.

I like both I guess but they need a balance. Too many "bright" maps in this game.

It would say there isnt much of a difference.

When playing on Security and you run towards the pistol spawn, the sun glares in background actually bothers my eye. Thats kinda annoying and amazing at the same time.

My biggest complaint is the blood and gibs, they just don't look REAL in GOW 2.
In Gears 1 , the blood looked more realistic.. I think they over did the brightness and shine on the blood and gibs..

Like you said the graphics are better but they should be..

Remember...gears 2 setting is supposed to be more "alive", grass and trees are growing again, its not just brown and black death like gow1. Its progression of the story line...

I liked them both, but both of them have problems. I think that their are to many dark maps on Gears, while some of the maps on Gears 2 are to bright. Over all though I think they did a good job on both, but I would really like to see a little more rain in Gears 2 I loved bullet marsh with the rain and lightning.

I like the Gears 1 style for Gears 1, and the Gears 2 style for 2. I don't think they'd work for each other (Gears 1 style for Gears 2... etc.) but they work well for what each game is.

(Though, the Locust prison area could have been a bit more washed out.)

I want smoke out of Longshot's barrel back! And the gunfire noise too! Gears 2 Longshot is like firing an airsoft gun. PHEW!

QFT I also think that the headshots and bodies were more intense in one. I'm not sure why. Different sounds or something I guess. I liked the dark feel of Gears because every other game is colorful.

I like the darker, grittier style of Gears 1, but the brighter more colorful style of Gears 2 is nice too. It's hard for me to say which I prefer. I would like to see more dark maps in MP though.

Basicly any GoW1 vs GoW2 poll is win always by GoW1
