GOW VS GOW- Which Game will be More Impressive?

Gears of War: Judgment and God of War: Ascension share more in common than the same initials. With great similarities, as well as, vast differences these game are actually a subject to be compared. Gears of War: Judgment is of course exclusive to Xbox, as God of War: Ascension is to PS3, which makes these game all the more competitive towards one another. While as these games play for different teams, they are both a new direction for a beloved series. Both titles are set to release within a week of the other so the stakes are high. Putting all else aside, what the comparison really comes down to is which game will be more impressive than the other. (Gears of War Judgment, God of War: Ascension, PS3, Xbox 360)

Holy shit.More useless drivel ending in question marks.
You're on a roll today, eh?

Gamerbliss is almost as bad as Gamingbolt!

The only similarity these games have is their initials. Nothing more. You can't judge one by comparing it to the other.

There is only one GOW and it features a man-god that has been extracting vengeance since 2005.

And I agree with ThatKansasGuy, it's another useless site writing flamebait because the talent to construct insightful, thought provoking articles is beyond their mentality and means.

Hopefully they will soon follow in 1Up's footsteps.

I'm not not expert or something, but I think GOW is better than GOW in pretty much every aspect

Nah. GOW trumps GOW everytime imo.

I am looking forward to GodOW more than GOW, but both games will be solid.

God of War is the OG GOW...gears of war was LTTP
joab777  +   780d ago
Is it me, or do games seem less weighty today. Maybe its the next gen or the industry is so saturated with triple a titles. Maybe its because i love rpgs and the last year has seen so many good ones. I remember a time when if a dead space, DmC, crysis, tombraider, God of War, and Gears of War all released within a month, it would be insane...like the greatest 3 months in gaming ever! But thats not reality. Maybe we are sequeled out. I will be honest. I picked up ni no kuni and i love it. The only game i am actually looking forward to is bioshock. If i have time, i will either grab far cry 3, tomb raider or God of War. Its seems blasphemous not to get God of War day 1. I have played them all, love them, and the demo for Ascencion is phenomonal. For the furst time though, i have so many unfinished games on my shelf and so many that at one time, i would never miss. I guess i will have time in may to go back, but then there is the last of us. WTF!!!!!
DaPrintz  +   780d ago
Far Cry 3 was awesome. Both GoW games are day ones for me. God of War will always be my favorite franchise though. Gears is my favorite 360 franchise though.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   780d ago
This inevitable opnion piece had to pop up. People can't wait till March at least to write crap like this?

There 2 different games! One can't out do the other if they are different genre's doing completely opposite things.
El_Assenso  +   779d ago
Stupid flamebait article. Both games are awesome. End of! These authors need to be shot and websites shut down!

Back on topic why don't you compare 2 like minded games from the same genre instead of the obvious bullshit!
isa_scout  +   779d ago
I always find it funny when the very first comment on the article is the person that submitted the article. You probably wrote this, didn't you? Way to play it off like you didn't, bravo... Way to get the ball rolling.NOT!!!These games are far to dissimilar to compare. So I wont add to the trolling by even responding to the question.

Comparing a shooter to a beat-em up makes no sense. Shooters will prefer Gears and others will choose GOW.

Well, in this case we compare which one does it's best.
DigitalRaptor  +   779d ago
Yeah, it's like comparing a meticulously crafted campaign with a game known for its amazing multiplayer. Both in different genres. No point in comparing.

But yeah... it's better to compare studios: Santa Monica vs. People Can Fly? Yeah.....

I think GOW will be more impressive. ;)
smashcrashbash  +   780d ago
Well I am not sure which will be most impressive seeing that I haven't played either but I am almost certain I can depend on God of War for large scale adventure type encounters and more engaging dialogue and story.

"Which Game will be More Impressive?"

If you are speaking about graphics, I'd be willing to bet the one with the fixed camera will win. Always.

Honestly have no clue which will be more impressive overall, I suppose that comes down to how the stories are told and the MP aspects.

This is a pointless question. That is like arguing what is better, a FIFA game with a 90 on metacritic, or a shooting game with a 90 on metacritic. Just simply stupid, only to create another unnecessary fanboy war with little kids screaming art the top of their lungs. SMH.
Tontus  +   779d ago
God of War DOESN'T have a fixed camera, it has an automated camera. There's a big difference. The Resident Evil games on PS1 had fixed camera angles, in God of War they're completely dynamic and make for a much more enjoyable and cinematic experience thanks to not having the burden of constantly adjusting the camera view.

God of War: Ascension will be much better than Gears of War: Judgment. I loved Gears 1 & 2 but 3 sucked and Gears: J looks worse in every way and it's being made by a B-level developer. Every God of War has been a masterpiece and God of War: Ascension is very likely to be the best in the series yet, it also has an amazing genre-defining new MP component which is just the cherry on top of the delicious cake.

Wow i think its really boring there??? Go out and get a new job

GOW was GOW before GOW

I believe the proper abbreviation for GOW was GeOW.
dee-ecks  +   780d ago
Exactly, God has alwasy been GOW where as Gears has been GeOW.
xursz  +   780d ago
Or just "Gears". That's how I've always called it.
konnerbllb  +   780d ago
It has never been GeOW. That was made up by God of War fans. Gears fans have always wrote it as GoW.
MysticStrummer  +   779d ago
I guess in their village, Gears fans stop on green and go on red. Doesn't mean they're right to do it that way.
Hicken  +   779d ago
Who cares how "Gears fans" wrote it?

God of War was first, and was thus first to be abbreviated GOW. You don't get to just decide you're going to use the same abbreviation.

GeOW was created to differentiate between the ORIGINAL and the newcomer.
listenkids  +   780d ago
GOW wins.
Captain Qwark 9  +   780d ago
both will be more of the same without any real significant changes. both will be solid but the god of war games have been the better experience for me. i also prefer action to shooters though.
Tontus  +   779d ago
God of War: Ascension has changed A LOT. The combat and platforming has been overhauled, the art-style and sound is drastically different, it's got a much more in-depth story and varied locations and there's a genre-defining new MP component which I consider a significant change.

I can't think of a single AAA game that has changed as much as God of War: Ascension has from its predecessor.

I think GOW will be more impressive, I like how you can rip monster bodies apart. I also like the visuals, big boss battles, and multiplayer. War is at hand;)
kenshiro100  +   780d ago
...Poor journalism yet again. One game is a third person shooter, the other is a third person brawler. Why are we comparing the two again?

How about everyone buy both (or buy whatever game is for your system) and just stop it?
clintagious650  +   780d ago
Stupid comparison. Both will be great games for their fans. Only thing similar about both these games are the initials & their both gory as fu*k.

YodaCracker  +   780d ago
I'll play God of War for the single player and Gears of War for the multiplayer.

Gears is pretty much the only game I play online regularly because it's such a unique MP experience. There's more to it than whoever sees the other player first gets the kill like just about every other online shooter. There's truly an art to the way you combine rolls, roadie runs, and cover bouncing to maneuver around the map and evade your enemies. This is a game where a lone guy can take on an entire team all at once if he's skilled enough. There is a sharper learning curve, but when you have mastered the movement and gunplay in Gears, there is simply no other MP experience as satisfying.

Deputydon  +   779d ago
I don't own an Xbox anymore, but having played Gears 2 for quite a long time, as well as watching friends play it, its true. The MP is nothing like many other game. Uncharted is the closest and that is nothing like it. There is a weight and overall feel of your characters is part of what makes it so unique.

Love both series but I have to go with GOW, I will get the other GOW at a later time.
