Anyone here not like Gears?

I enjoyed the games. But then again I did not spend hundreds of hours on each title.

I spent much time on the first games multiplayer but not the other two.

After playing resident evil 4 I was kinda hoping gears would be the same minus the hiding.

It seems like hiding is a major part of the game.

Killed it for me.

I found it boring and the characters were very grating.

It's not just a rumor, I heard it on Gamefaqs.

I don't really like it to be honest.

It's not so much that I didn't like it, in fact I enjoyed GoW 1 , but it got old & repetitive afterwards. That being said, I feel the same about any sequel that goes past 2 if they don't do something innovative to keep it fresh. This goes for Halo, GoW, CoD, etc. I'm sure I'd feel the same way about quite a few PS3 titles as well. I just feel there comes a point where a series starts to lose something about itself and just gets stale after awhile. This is my biggest grievence w/ the 360. It's just becoming a rehash machine that is supported by XBLA , Kinect & Apps.

I just think it's an okay series. Gears was great, gears 2 was okay, gears 3 was better than 2 but not as good as the first.

I did not like the pacing of the SP and hated the mechanics of the MP , this series was completely dead to me after the first game.

I like Gears but I don't love it like some do. It has great graphics and its got a pretty cool story but the gameplay gets repetitive quickly. Its a good exclusive but I don't think its the system seller some make it out to be.

I like GoW though co-op definitely has a different feel to it than solo. I doubt I would like the series as much as I do if i went through the trilogy solo you don't notice the repetitive nature in co-op. Also I don't know what it was but 3 felt kinda off to me I think it was the open world and landscapes compared to the enclosed feel off the first two. Then again the change of scenery was story driven.

I don't like Gears of War. And I have a XBOX 360, bought Gears 2 when it was on sale (not long after its release) but only played about 20 minutes. I still have the game but not playing it.

I just don't like the war zone setting and the typical macho soldier kind of protagonist.
