Gears of war two and Mass effect 2 comparison.

well, I've just got a hold of 'Gears of war 2' for the Xbox 360 and it struck me that it's kind of similar to mass effect, here's the run down:

'Gears of war 2' is a game made by Epic games and stars a rather butch crew in a 3rd person shooter.
not played the first gears but i'm guessing that the collectors zerg scrin locust came up from the ground and blew some shit up.
well the colour palette is pretty much every shade of brown.
The only problems with games like this is that combat is never surprising at all the combat zones are filled with knee high walls and pillars.
as you might be able to tell the game play is manly duck and shoot, sometimes run somewhere.
it's pretty fun though, not going to lie.

'Mass effect 2' is a game made by Bioware and stars a rather talkative crew in a 3rd person RPG.
not played the first gears but i'm guessing that the collectors zerg scrin locustcome down from space and steal colonies.
well the colour palette is pretty much every shade of grey.

This game is huge, with loads of different options at almost every point in the game, this makes the game have a high replay value.


The games are pretty similar as they both have weird looking alienistic bad guys that you have to shoot from behind low walls with regenerating health, but I'm going to go ahead and say I liked 'Mass effect 2' more.
