For those of you who aren't IGN insiders, Yahoo has posted the same grudge match comparison video of Resistance 2 vs. Gears of War 2 for public viewing.
As many of us would agree, IGN puts Resistance 2 as the better shooter to buy this year, providing a meatier multiplayer and co-op experience for gamers. Still, if you have the money, Gears of War 2 is still worth picking up all the same. Watch the grudge match video comparison below.

This is retarded, i'm not a Xbox fanboy but I think the undisputed winner is Gears in terms of graphics. Sure R2 has depth but c'mon, its gears, its what it's know for. How aout a comparison of Gears VS KillZone. That's worth watching.

I AGREE GRAPHX ARE BETTER :d ON GEARS BUT STILL I LOVE MY R2 :d

Odd video comparison really. I mean GOW2 is far superior graphically to R2, but is it a better game (I look forward to finding out).

Aha, the Gears frachise is known for it's graphics, so all future Gears games has to be the best graphic wise. How about: No, the graphics aren't THAT great, or: This is not a graphics comparison.

Everyone seems to have got this all wrong. It's Gears of War 1.5, at least Insomniac has made a huge effort on this game. Gears has just had a graphics tweak.

Dont forget that r2 is first person and gow is 3rd. The distance in 3rd person shooters allow lower quality graphics to look much better

well when you only get 1-2 wuality titles a year for your system of course you're going to hype the crap out of it

i completely agree gears 2 is a tight game but R2 tops it
but R2 absolutley does not seem like "an empty push from kill room to kill room" that's absurd the intel simply adds backstory and extra little hints if you pay attention when you're playing and listen to what the people are talking about in game then you would get the story

Argh, S*** quality! Wow...just look at all of those sad little Xbox 36 fanboys trash mouthing Resistance 2 just because this person ejoyed the game more then Gears 2.

kind of surprised to be honest. good to see it getting there vote. ill be picking it up soon.

I gotta say, I bought R2 and Gears 2 on midnight launches and yes the graphics are better on Gears, but graphics arent everything. I was really let down by a lot of choices and changes in gears this time around. The multiplayer seems to be somewhat broken as well, and all of the glitches from the first one and more are back. Also of note, my 360 scratched the h.ell out of my gears 2 :)

well both games are amazing that's why i got both
- 3:07am EST - November 27th, 2008
didn't think R2 would come out on top. But that's good to hear. I already pre-ordered R2 and it should be here tomorrow, I can't wait! :D
Still I do think Gears 2 has better graphics, but gameplaywise I definitely think R2 is better.

@ 2 you're an idiot, this is a comparison of games not graphics, and as a whole R2 is better. The single player is whack on R2 he got that right but the MP is yrs better than GOW 2. As far as Gears going up against forget no contest everything about KillZone 2 is better.

Both games are fantastic! R2's story is really good. I think R2 coop is really repetitive and I didn't like the MP. I still play Resistance 1 online though. As for Gears 2, I really enjoyed the game, I think the boss fights are better than R2. I think Gears 2 and R2 are currently the best TPS and FPS respectively. I encourage everybody to play both.

it's fun but i think they should've kept the weapon wheel

Both games are absolutely amazing, but I gotta agree 100% with the insider comparison.
