I actually like the fact that people are finding it by themselves as well, shows they are searching! :) Like all Gear Heads do! :)

sorry, guys whenever i see those faces i got to laugh. i mean i love gears of war but those characters are sooo poor.
they look all like porn actors. they are so over exclamated, they wear a 200kilo suit.
i have that image in my head, where marcus says: "Peter North and I are making pr0n together!".
I mean their chins are twice as big as every normal persons chin.

ahh, sorry, i love gears, unreal engine 3 and epic... the characters are the only thing i dislike.

I may not be down with the latest "pr0n" put when do people ever wear 200 kilo suits.?

ANd the characters will grow on you, they wil grow on you so much you will wake up one day and look around your house for Gus.

The only thing I don't like about the characters is how EVERY DANG game company is trying overboard to apply diversity to their games... white.. check... black... check... chinese... check... Mexican... check.. Overempowered strong woman... check...

All we need is for one of them to be gay, and it won't be band of brothers but a season of the REAL WORLD: SERA

now i could live with the last one ;)

seriosly, they won't grow on me. another thing i don't like is that uberpornactorvoice (i should stop with that porn ****^^).

i would have prefered some kind of real person... even that kind of loserboy in the team, the blondie, looks stronger than everybody i know (he looks a little bit like 2times brad pitt).

btw: augustus cole - "the cole train"...porn?

Apparently you didnt know this was made by EPIC (unreal tournament series) Having a character over-exaggerated adds to the overal badassness of the game. And also, a real person wouldnt survive what these guys do...

Also, this is a videogame. Reality isnt always best. And have you seen the movie predator? The characters arent over-exaggerated after you watch that movie. Oh, and look at Jay leno for the chin thing.

I am at opposite sides of the table from you, i think the characters are the coolest ive ever seen in a game.

EDIT: How do you not like the voices? Are you nuts?

I don't agree, i think thats its good that they finnaly put some diversity into these games. its about time that we had a little more variety in the gamer world i think that the differnt character races will help the game. I know that the gamer comunity is mostly young white males, but there are alot of black, hispanic, aisan, and women that play video games also, and they want to be represented in this ever growing community.

I don't mind all the different "races" that they put in video games. What bothers me is when people bring it up like it's the biggest thing of the year. The only time racial discrimination is going to dissapear is when people quit treating it like it's a huge issue, and I'm talking about all "races". Just because a game developer or movie producer doesn't put a million different races in their production doesn't mean they're not representing everyone. Maybe they just put people in to put people in, not to cover all the races. I kinda wish everyone would quit thinking there's a racial agenda everytime something like this happens. Sorry if I'm ranting, but this is kind of a sensative subject for me.

thats all im sayin, a African American COG with a chainsaw is the same as a White COG with a chainsaw, the the important thing is that they all have chainsaws (and know how to use em).......:D

I completely agree..... but one thing i would bet money on is that Gus dies first in the story line. And for whoever posted the cole train thing before, i think that it's a reference to the terry tate commercials, with the pain train. After all, the voice actor was terry tate in those commercials and what do you expect it to sound like, some average voice? What's the point in getting voice actors then. "Yeah we're hiring and we're looking for a guy with a normal voice." Sorry if it seems like i'm flameing, but this is a video game, not real life.

I do believe one day racial issues won't exist. Although it won't be in my lifetime or my childrens childrens lifetime. It seems to have been engraned in the human brain....like sex...it's horrible.
