One of the first published game reviews of Gears Of War brought to you by Yahoo Games. Enjoy!
This is torture! 10 more days....
having to wait 10 days for this is BS!!! some stores in the u.s are selling it now, anyone picked up a copy yet?
I am pretty sure that my local Gamestop is having a midnight release. I am going to call later on to find out. I will let you know.
Got a call from my local Gamestop last night stating that my copy will be available this afternoon. Really looking forward to it.
...that equates to a 9/10. ;)
the game is the real deal
..As you cant really have 1/4 stars, the 4 and a 1/2 rating could be anywhere between 85 and 95%
1.) Who says you can't have a 1/4 star? 2.) If you divide the total # of possible stars (30) into the # given (28.5), you get 95%...which is even better than the average from the 4.5/5 score. Either way, it's 9-9.5...NOT 8.5 :)
Give me a break man! Are you really trying this hard to knock the game?
no! 4 stars equates to 8/10, 4.5 stars to 9/10, and 5 stars to 10/10. So the range that 4stars can be is 7.5-8.5 out of 10. The range the 4.5 stars can be is 8.5-9.5. And the range of 5 stars can only be between 9.5-10 coz you cant get 10.5/10. Trust me! Im not tryin to diss this game, ive had it preoreded for months!! i hate the star system coz its too vague! i reckon this game should be sittin in the 5 star from the averages of all the other stars! but they never seem to do that. Just wish theyd rate it out of 10!
...and I already broke it down for you anyway. The ACTUAL SCORE is 95%...the "rough" average is 9/10. And again, who says you couldn't have a 1/4 star anyway? I've seen NUMEROUS movie/book/game reviews that did so.
This is a great score from Yahoo because they always give low scores from what I've noticed in the past! 9.0 isnt a bad score at all and for those in doubt just check out gamerankings.com!
At gamestop, can't wait. I am leaving work at noon to go home and play it.
Said my copy will be here @ 2:00. =) Good Times!!!!
Nice review! I can't wait to see what GameSpot has to say about GOW. Oops, this just in: 9.6 on GameSpot! Impressive!! Finally, a worthy Killer App. For me it was more of a Bruiser App situation, (personal picks being Dead Rising and Chromehounds), but this thing is sweet.
Now lets see RFOM get this rating! I bet you that it doesn`t! Picking up from EB games today, just called them and they said later today in the afternoon!
Don't ruin the positive thread here with your fanboy crap. Puh-lease.
Stop it! This is great news! Don't feed the trolls!
