OXM UK will have the world first review of Gears of War 2 tomorrow. The review will be in Issue 40 of Official Xbox 360 Magazine UK, which goes on sale and will be sent out to subscribers tomorrow.
OXM UK? Meh. I'll wait for a credible source.
Credible isnt the word Id use, perhaps "unaffiliated" is better suited.
OXM UK and OXM US are not in anyway related to Microsoft. The magazine is part of the Future company. They publish Nintendo Power, Playstation: The Official Magazine, PC Gamer, Games Radar, etc... http://www.futureus-inc.com...
Bubbles for doing your research. Just because it has Xbox in its name doesn't mean it's owned by Microsoft.
not the worlds first coming from a xbox mag hmm come on. i'll wait for the independent sites. xbox360 mag oh 10/10 yay ign where see but i think it be a good game, as long as they make the multiplayer aspects more fun. i'm guessing it will be a solid 9 overal.
Nah, I dont think the official mag for 360 rig their scores.. I mean they rated Fable 2 9.5 and not 10, now doesnt that say something? unlike sony, i bet they rated Haze and Lair around 8-10 LOL
let the check cashing begin
I didnt get owned, its your crappy excluisve lmao
wow. 10/10 confirmed
But not 10/10 I'd give it 8.5
alright, i'll admit it, that was good.
Lame, we already know this idiots are going to give it a 10/10, inspite of the $#*TTY final boss battle and ending.
we all know this.....it'll get a 10 while the story plot commits suicide but hate lbp cuz they don't have the brain cells to control how to move between the 3 planes in lbp.(top middle and back........morons.)
Yeah, people tend to not think before they speak here. LBP has less story than Gears, but that doesn't mean it's not fun nonetheless. Story is nice, but games can be fun without it.
especially since lbp is a fps and needs a story to make sure its good.
i think i know what that's gonna look like...............more anxious for the resistance2 reviews.
10/10 With "GOTY AWARD" already.
:DDDDDD 8/10 with bigflop
"GOTY AWARD" i lol'd He even used all caps to try and reassure himself lol Poor scumbag.
Y'know it's going to be funny if it does indeed get GOTY and he has every right to shove it in your face endlessly.
The keyword there is "if" and that's a BIG "IF" MGS4 GTAIV LBP R2 Geow2 All contenders for GOTY. This isn't 2006-2007 anymore..360 has competition this time
i wonder if it will do as well as fable 2, in review scores I mean, personally I don't think it will.
If the first game is any indication, I think it'll do better than Fable 2.
-1 point for the ending, overall story (unless you have 12 or less) -1 for being the same old game -1 for not having purple power rangers No GOTY kiddies ;_;
Are we supposed to expect anything less than a 9 from their review of Tears of Bore?
go play your childish garbage,you mad gears 2 will outsell any george foreman grill 3 game.
Motorstorm 2: 8/10 more of the same. Gears of war 2: 10/10 more of the same. The review sites reviewing the games: more of the same. I rest my case.
This whole platform bias thing has to stop. Review sites should be objective when reviewing games and not put too much emphasis on personal. For example, I played Gears of War for like an I hour and I was bored out of my mind but I'd still give it a good score if I reviewed because it did a lot of things right. Motorstorm 2 got bad scores because it was more of "the same" and these same sites give Halo 3 perfect scores. The worst of those site is gamespot. They gave Ratchet and Clank a 7.5. I'm not mad because they gave it a 7.5 but I'm mad that they gave it a 7.5 for no reason. Their review was singing its praises the whole time and then they gave it a 7.5 for having " too much variety". If you don't believe watch or read the review for yourselves. Ratchet and Clank is the best looking 3D platformer EVER released. It literally looks like a pixar movie. If it was on the 360, it would have at least a 92 on metacritic. Another example is WipeOut HD. The game runs cost 1/3 less than the average game and it's the best looking racing game ever released (excluding GT prologue). The game is extremely fun. I just can't wait for the bias against the PS3 to end. So many people want it to fail for no apparent reason. As soon as the PS3 install base surpasses the 360's then it should be a little better.
It will be interesting to see, as games such as motorstorm 2 (whilst a different genre) have been penalised for not really doing much new, whilst having better graphics and more features, its lost points for lack of innovation...lets see if the same applies....
If you think about it, almost every game is just more of the same from its predecessors with improvements. That's just how video games are. Every once in a while you get a truly innovative gem, but most games are just improvements of old formulas.
Let's wait for the reviews of non-official_(insert_console_h ere)_site/mag.
