    Default How Will You First Play the Campaign?

    What i mean is- what difficulty. i have heard of there being casual, ?NORMAL?, hardcore, and then insane (which we all know must be unlocked by beating it on another dif) so that leaves with three (not sure) choices. i personally like to at first, being that i have been playing Gears 1 since release, not start on casual, but instead like either the normal? or hardcore setting. then i'll probably beat insane and maybe when i'm bored later casual- now that i think about i don't believe there are achievements for beating it on each difficulty setting so i probs won't bother with casual if the case. another reason for normal/hardcore is because i will first go straight to campaign, so i want to beat it fairly fast this time around, so i can get to multiplayer and insane mode later on... yea this topic is a little random i know, don't get on my balls about it.

    Playing on Hardcore first, whether it's with my friend in Co-op or not I don't know. After Hardcore, I'll play it on Insane of course.

    Normal, and I'm going to take my sweet time. Theres no need to rush a game like this, becuase I know i'm going to beat it on Insane at least twice, just like what I did for the first Gears.

    (I still play the Gears 1 single player at least a few times a month)

    Hardcore. If Normal is just a notch above Casual, it won't be that challenging, so I'd like to start on something that will give me a hard time.
    Gears 2 and Fable 2.

    A very good holiday season.

    Don't forget you can play on Normal while your buddy plays on Casual.

    I'll be playing on Hardcore first.

    playing on INSANE first, then i could play Sp the longest, i never want it to end, plus it would be challenging, its not fun when u go threw the Sp in a day, then replay it on insane.

    I usually play games like that on the easiest setting first to finish it quickly, because honestly, I am more excited for the multiplayer because im not much of a campaign person. but once i get used to the multiplayer again, I will go back and replay it on harder difficulties.

    Yeah I can get one for ú149.99, I'm going to get an Elite though for ú249. With the new dashboard update on the way and the option to install games on HDD the extra 100GB might come in useful lol. Going to send my old 360 in for repair and trade it in when I get it back.

    you have to go through the campaign on hardcore, normal or casual,
    you wont be able to pick up insane the first time you start the game..

    I think I will play it with the wife first on casual or hardcore until she gets better which she is then, I"ll play it with my friend on INSANE for the full effect and challenge
    People come for the single player and stay for the multiplayer and co-op. It's as simple as that and a similar thing could be said about graphics. They come for the graphics but they stay for the gameplay.

    Definitely hardcore. Normal is too easy, and casual sounds as if it will be ridiculously easy.

    Maybe Normal, because then when I go through on Hardcore and Insane after that, I'll just be racking up more kills for Seriously 2.0
