The latest Famitsu reviews include a near-perfect Gears of War score and the first Phantasy Star Online 2 and Muramasa Rebirth scores.
Damn gears look like its good
I get mine tomarrow.
"Damn gears look like its good" *clicks disagree 10 times and yells WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!*
because everyone must hail sony and bash microsoft and nintendo. Your ignorance hurts my brain
@nintendoland - What you call ignorance I call experience. You joined 6 months ago, I joined 7 years ago. Hang around a little more before you accuse someone of being ignorant.
InMyOpinion, "You joined 6 months ago, I joined 7 years ago. Hang around a little more before you accuse someone of being ignorant." What does time have to do with your earlier comment? Are you suggesting that anyone who has been here for 7 years they too should all be typing *clicks disagree 10 times and yells WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!* Nah, I've got better things to do than to troll articles on Gears of War.
@MikeMyers - I'm suggesting that most of those disagrees probably comes from PS fanboys. They tend to jump on anything that involves Halo, Gears or Forza.
It does look good
Makes me feel good about my NFS preorder. I don't have a 360 but I will be stopping by my friend's house to play Gears. Also glad Muramasa did well. I enjoyed it on Wii.
I have shrugged off Famitsu reviews ever since FFXIII got a perfect score. They just aren't reliable anymore.
All reviewers have a bad score. Show me one reviewer who has never had anyone disagree with every score they have given?
Was all ready to congratulate Gears on scoring so high...Then i visited metacritic. YIKES!! Now, i sincerely appoligize for this somewhat off topic rant, but there are just a few things i have to say about the gears series. ive personally played through every single entry and i must say that i just cant bring myself to like it. It leaves me clueless to think that so many critics think so highly of what i feel is such an average game. I know im going to sound like a total fanboy here, but i just feel as if the gears series is incredibly overrated as a whole. My personal "most overrated series" for this gen, without a doubt. perhaps there was always some kind of appeal i just wasnt seeing, idk. for whatever reason, i just couldnt see much out of the game aside from a short, tacked-on story mode with one of the most corny scripts and cliche storylines ive ever seen. it barely surpasses the killzone series, but surpasses it nonetheless. the multiplayer, being the games main component, is nothing special in my eyes. In a world of oh so many COD clones, I RESPECT gears greatly for doing multiplayer so drastically different from whats out there. However I just cannot detect the level of supposed "depth" gears MP has. In my time with the multiplayer, what i have witnessed (from rather high-ranking players) is a shotgun fest, with the addition of overpowered weaponry scattered across the map. Again, Im not trying to turn this into an argument over opinions. It's just that ive been longing to express my feelings on the series for quite sometime now. It doesnt necessarily feel "good" or "bad" to see judgement to perform lower than its predecessors. However i cant deny that for me personally, there is something strangely settling to finally see a gears game average a score that i feel the series has deserved for far too long, even if it is for largely different reasons.
Haha, even the Japanese love Gears. 37/40 is great score. Can't wait to pick up mine tomorrow.
But its a shame that they don't like the Xbox otherwise Gears would sell extremely well in japan. But like I always said the Japanese have a very different culture than the west which is why their preferences for games are different then ours. Best example just compare handhelds to consoles and you will see what I mean. Motorola RAZR i
Japanese people don't care about Famitsu reviews. http://www.gamerevolution.c... http://aya.shii.org/2011/11...
And PSP games. Hopefully some of those end up getting translated and coming to Aus...
