I just revisited campaign again after 11 months or so since last properly playing it. I tried two weeks ago but kept getting disconnects though now it seems to be ok. But, I was shocked and appalled at how clunk and jerky the gameplay is. Please tell me - has the game had a downgrade at some point? Has a bug crept in with OP4 that has a negative effect on campaign? Or, am I just used to playing 10+ months of smooth 60fps multiplayer and now my eyes can’t cope with the slow janky 30fps in campagin?
If the latter, it is crazy how our eyes adapt to something!
According to dana the campaign and PVE modes use older movement than the MP. On the topic of that, I noticed some things are in the campaign while others got cut from the PVE. Like if you get melee’d by an imago in the campaign there’ll be a short animation of you and the imago getting into a push fight.
So do you reckon it’s because I’ve played about 10 months of PvP since I last played the campaign, and it’s just that my eyes are struggling to adjust back to 30fps for campaign? It’s weird, I don’t remember feeling such a difference between campaign and PvP on Gears 4, but maybe I was playing more of both, at the same time then.
The difference between the two is night and day. I’ve tried playing Gears at 30FPS before and it’s just not enjoyable for my eyes. Hell, going from 144fps to 60fps is an eye sore (PC). When you cut the frame rate in half (or more) it’s going to be a bad experience.
