    Default Gears and Halo

    After reviewing much upcoming information about, probably the best game in the world, Gears of War 2, I'm starting to realise that some of the similarities between Gears and Halo are becoming more and more greater the more I learn about it. For instance:

    - The Derrick similar to Halo's Elephant

    - Grenade Sticking

    - Matchmaking in Multiplayer

    - No Clan system

    - No dedicated Servers

    Just to name a few. Some of these are unavoidable which is understandable, and many will probably think this thread is pointless. There may be other threads posted about this and if so I'm sorry for repeating myself. I just think if these are deliberate, I don't want Gears to turn into another Halo game.

    If you agree with what I'm saying or have anything to add, please do.

    its basically halo with cover and more violence...don't deny the new pistol looking like a spiker or the health system... anyways stopping power is going to either make or break gow2 multiplayer... I don't think a lot of people will be happy i think it should be an option to turn on and off cause I bet a lot of mlg ***gots will whine

    not something that you can just throw out there and it drains your opponents sheilds.... in gears, there a penalty for holding said "equipment" (you can only use your pistol) in halo, you can hold a rokkit lawnchair, a spartan laser, and then throw out equipment

    Lol! Nice. Ima use that from now on. But, getting back on topic, games may tend to be inspired by other games. The Derrick may look like the elephant in some areas, but its not usable in multiplayer. Grenade sticking was already in Gears 1 and besides you cant throw grenades at people and they stick to them like in Halo. People in Gears actually die from a headshot, the health system is similar as in most games now, Halo gets boring and Gears doesnt, you can use cover in gears while in halo you must run around.
    Gears was released without a clan system. It was released before halo 3. How did it copy?

    ok, but i didnt make that up... rokkit comes from warhammer 40k (the orks), and lawnchair comes from arby and the cheif (google it, its kinda dumb, but funny at te same time)

    You can die from a headshot in halo... lolz. Even though, the Hammerburst is compared to Halo's Carbine in reviews (Not saying it's based off it or anything) but just simple, little things that make gears, now seem Haloishh.

    Why do you care about the colour of a Boomshot? Does it really matter if it has "similar" things to Halo, Because I don't care, Gears will be better than Halo 3 and we all know this so why complain?. (especially about colour and design about a pistol)

    No. Im trying to get across the problem that halo has with the sniper. Many headshots dont register as headshots. Many of the bullets hit, but all you see is a small splatter of blood that comes from their head and they dont get hurt.

    Just face it, both Gears and Halo are copies of Space Invaders specificlly because they have guns in them and you can defeat enemies. I asume Carmine is a copy of Master Chief because they both wear helmats. Gears copied the Halo snipe, by allowing it to zoom in. Both have lasers in. Um, youcan aim in both to that's another copy.

    Seriously, you could go on forever.

    Oh god I knew this was going to turn into a a 'f*** halo lol!' fest.

    I doubt anything was intentionally copied, and if it was inspired by something from halo, they would probably have a word with bungie.

    Are you serious grenade sticking wasn't in gow 1. Another similar thing between halo and gears is the flamethrowers.
