Gears Of War 2 gets 9/10 in OXM

OXM UK has reviewed Gears of War 2 and given it 9/10.

The review is in the latest issue of OXM UK, which has gone on sale today, and they say "we reckon it's the biggest blockbuster you'll see this year." (Gears of War 2, Xbox 360)

Ouch
9/10 from an Xbox magazine for Gears2 isnt looking good.
AngryHippo  +   2128d ago
lol i will remember.....
....to say exactly the same thing when resistance 2 launches. OXM give honest reviews in my book, and 9/10 is an excellent score. I dont know what your idea of a good score is.
Sony Rep  +   2128d ago
@AngryHippo
I recall people saying that Resistance 2 wasn't sh!t compared to Gears 2, and that Gears will pwn all this holiday. A 9/10 for Resistance is just proving you Xbutz wrong.

For such a big title, the flagship title for the 360, this score is disappointing.

Not even a 9.5,9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4?? LOL LMAO

X-butz, assed out, again. Gears 1.5 confirmed.

Note: I am in the Resistance 2 beta, and it rocks! Fun competitive online and co-op. The campaign will be the iceing on the cake, baby. Can't wait!! Bigger improvement over Resistance 1. The weapons and gameplay are much more refined and FUN.

@dro: Nah. Eurogamer gave the first one an 8/10. So, Gears 2 will probably get the same score or a 7. LMAO.

@Sena Kobayakawa: Do you remember all the 10's Halo got? I sure do. Anything less is a disappointment, especially for a flagship title. Don't forget, this is also the OFFICIAL XBOX MAGAZINE.

Even a 9 is actually inflated for this overhyped POS
Shiatass ending. Honestly who the hell does cliffy turd now thinks that he is. He was biatchslapping how MGS4 is slow and all but his game is even slower. MGS4 gave us the most epic 2 hour ending of the current gen. GeOW2 has a shiatas ending which is the exact same as GeOW1.

The game is ridiculously glitchy and its clear that the game is not DONE. They pushed this game in November release so they could benefit from the holiday sales but what they are doing is actually screwing consumers.

And then the multi player. Damn, ridiculously slow. I cant see how anyone can play that and enjoy themselves after COD4.

Its just not hectic, intense, chaotic and warlike enough. Should have known when its 5v5.

Joejoefhosho  +   2127d ago
Nah, YOU GUYS don't get it...
The whole point is that Gears1.5 SUPPOSED to be XBOX360 SAVIOR this year since all they have is "FLOPS" arcoss the board, ZERO AAA - NOT EVEN FABLE2

Add to that, LBP getting 10s and 95/96 meta-critic arcoss the board

9/10 FOR A FLAGSHIP GAME = HORRIBLE, get it?

You lose, bots.

You can rub all the flops PS3 has but REMEMBER, XBOX360 has FLOPS too

Flops don't define a console, GREAT AAA games DOES!!!!!!!!!!

And what do you know?

PS3 this year has MGS4 and LBP already, all way above 90%

FABLE didn't relieved (<90% meta critic, NOT AAA) and Gears1.5 received a 90% EXACT in the XBOT MAGAZINE, it's pretty much NOT GONNA GET AAA STATUS with more REVIEWS (LBP received 6 perfect 10s before the first none perfect score, btw). Of course, BOTS will still buy this game BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE DUHHHHH all great EXCLUSIVES (highest scores) BELONG TO THE ps3 this year.

You lose, BOTS.

No game is perfect. That doesn't mean no game deserves a 10.
A 10 is for a game being the best it can be at this point in time.
The year later than might only be worth a 9.5.

If the gaming experience is a 10 out of 10, then the game is a 10, even if there are minor things you would like to see changed.

I agree with OXM's score. The game is a 9/10. Doesn't deserve any less, but unfortunately doesn't deserve more.

Great gameplay, graphics are excellent, characters as crazy as ever, but storyline is good not amazing.

OXM is pretty HARSH on them 360 games these days man...

I aint no fanboy but i am glad i chose the xbox360 this holiday.. Fable, Gears, Banjo..

And I own a ps3 ;) .. i have the Resistance beta.. but that looked pretty ugly (same as part 1) and is pretty boring..

Though imma get LBP maiin.. i would at least like tot try that game .. cuz my ps3 has been eating dust for a year now xD becuz i hate MGS xD sooo no much choise

mikeslemonade  +   2128d ago
It's a 9 because they expected to see a bigger jump. Epic kind of outdone themselves with Gears 1 visuals and now the 2nd comes out with the same Unreal Engine 3 it isn't all that groundbreaking or different compared to the 1st one.

Alright Fable got a 9.5 from the same magazine and only has a metacritic of 8.9 the last time i checked, so if that's any indication Gears 2 is going to get around a 9 as well and maybe even lower.
Cliff Bull-Shit-ski  +   2127d ago
OPM
Official PlayStation Magazine was honest and gave HAZE a 3!

I still don't trust any of the consoles "official magazines" though.

My most trusted are: IGN, EuroGamer, and sometimes XPLAY(I like to hear why they gave something a certain score before I trust their reviews). GameSpot gave R&C Future: ToD a 7.5! Like WOW WTF?! IGN is by far the most trustworthy but still not 100%. The gave GTAIV a 10 overall and a 10 in graphics...are you fvcking kidding me? The pop-in on the 360 version of GTAIV was absurd and even though the PS3 version ran slightly smoother with less pop-in, the graphics were no where near a 10! They gave everything in GTAIV a 10! The sound was not amazing and the story was pretty good but not as good as the reviewer said - "the story is Oscar quality"...wow! GTAIV getting a 10 made MGS4s 10 not look as amazing. IGN was clearly paid a little something under the table.
DISCIPLE111  +   2127d ago
off topic
i cant stop looking at your avatar Deee187 lol

ON TOPIC: as long as its just as entertaining as the 1st one, then its a perfect 10 for me. I mean if gears one kept ppl playing since 2006, then i know this will do the same more than likely. an it may not be a HUGE improvement graphically but it damn sure isn't ugly, add hours of non stop fun online and I say it deserves a 10.

No need to get defensive and bring up socom brotha, 9/10 is a good score and like chuk5 points out, they gave gears1 the same score. Let's just all be happy that it doesn't suck ass and that it is all we expected it to be.
Why o why  +   2128d ago
thats very defensive
but 9 is a good score. It ALWAYS was a good score. Ill let you decide who I personally think started this score crap this gen. Ill give you a hint: they quote a lot of metacritic like its the be all and end all of gaming.

Its not easy to surpass the original WOW factor that new ip's have; that given this is a very very good score and reflectively better than the first because they were up against it this time with so many quality games including its own predecessor to be compared to.

Why the hell would a 9 be a flop! It's massively higher, it's 9/10 of the way to full marks. If I got that kind of percent in my exams I'd be a very very *Gasps for air* very very happy man. People are just overcritical. The only good score anymore is above a 10.

The correct quote is: "biggest blockbuster you'll see this year". Not best, biggest. As for it being the biggest blockbuster of the year there really is no doubt that it will be just that, the best selling exclusive game on consoles. If you disagree with this comment please explain why.

Well, I must admit, I didn't expect less (or more) from Gears 2.

After all the videos I've seen, it looks more or less the same, and since the first game was hit, then the second would be too if they kept the things that made Gears 1 such a popular game.

And this is coming from a "sony boy".

I've only finished the first chapter, but based on that Id say a 9 is pretty fair, it's an excellent game which is only spoilt by it's predecessor, Gears 1 made such an impact it's difficult for the sequel to do the same.

So many great games over the next few month. We're really being spoilt.

I'm with Fishy on this one, I beat the game with my friend's pirated 360. But I'm going to buy the full retail copy. This game deserves it.

And I agree with you Fishy. Gears 1 blew my mind away with it's intense graphics, gameplay, and just overall badassness. But you're right, we're so spoiled from the last one. Gears 2 just didn't have the same impact. It's a lot of the same with different environments.

Nonetheless, as I keep saying again and again to the haters. It's still a must-buy 360 game.

i believe it will get a lot of lower score this time around...
after the first gears, i am expecting more in terms of story,graphic(epic said that they were rushed the first time around and that this is what gears1 shoould have been" and the amount of "enemies that really counting on screen" fighting against you. i seen a lot of videos on this game and it is not the leap of faith that i thought they were going to take with this game in part two..

the horde mode
i watched the horde video. the five cog could stayed in the bacony and reached level 100. all they had to do is drop the shield by the stairs and use the hammer of dawn on all the enemies below with suppressing machine gun fire ect.... i only seen about 5 enemies at a time charging the 5 cog players... the locust queen looks like the ice princess in the movie narnia. there is more to talk about but that is all the time i have right now. okay two more last things.. lol

The faculty monster at the end is just lame!!! epic should wait for the next xboxs or switch consoles because something is wrong here!!!! a quick fix is to make the game and online game only and keep the story mode in the "trash" for the next gears... i just being honest...

Silogon  +   2128d ago
It deserves a 7 and here's why:

1 - No graphical improvment from the 1st. Characters still look like they're made from the same model and then textured differently.

2 - Same stiff gameplay from the 1st. Characters and enemies all move around like they're on wooden sticks behing held by children in a puppet show.

3 - Once again the game is only 6 hours long, and to top it off the final boss and ending cenimatic was/is the worst last boss I've seen to date. Even worse than Karnov's ending for the NES, in which it just told you Congratulations: The End.

Gears of War 2 sucks like the 1st one sucks and if you try throwing up sales numbers in my face, well.... those people suck too.

Agree and Disagree. The campaign in the first game was extremely underwhelming. The multiplayer is still a blast to play (glitches and all).

6 hours on campaign for the 2nd time around is extremely short considering that it is supposed to be 'bigger' ...

I think that reviewers this time around will not be as impressed ...

RFOM2 gets an 8?
I heard from somebody that works for Future U.S that Resistance Fall Of Men 2 got an 8 in the next issue of Edge.

Not that this would come as a surprise since Edge Magazine is usually very strict with their scoring system.

Wonder how much Edge is going to score Gears Of War 2.

No matter... I got my hands full on Dead Space, Fable II and Far Cry 2.

And what does Resistance 2 have to do with this?
Cheboury  +   2128d ago
To show that it's very hard to surpase the previous installment.

Every reviewer has an angle from which they approach a sequel with.

SO a 9 or an 8 could still be a 10 in some peoples minds.

How are they biased?

EDIT: I hope your not saying they are biased because they gave your favorite game this gen MGS4 an 8.Well they gave my favorite game this gen MASS EFFECT a 7, but i ain't calling then biased now am i.

Its all a review, sometimes they are right sometimes they are not but we should all remember that it's mostly their own opinion.Example , the gave the highest and most critically acclaimed game of last year BIOSHOCK and 8 and do you know what i agreed with them because BIOSHOCK in my opinion had zero replay value.I bought the game, finished it in 2 days and returned it to my local GAME store 3 days later.

Now they gave GTA4 a 10.I got the game 2 weeks ago because i needed something to play till FABLE 2 arrives, and what better game to buy than the most highest rated title of the year.Well in my 2 weeks of playing GTA4 i don't think that game warrants anything more than an 8.5 max and the more i play the score keeps dropping.

So i hope you can see that they are not biased but what i think the right thing to say is that they are slowly loosing touch of what makes a good game in their quest to be really critical in the face of other credible reviewers like IGN (shakes head because they also gave GTA4 a 10).

Aha the post man just arrives at my door with my copy of FABLE 2.Good by GTA4 and good bye N4G for a few hours.

Good score, not anything special though considering how many games this year have got 10's.

I have high expectations from this game in the campaign department ... anything less than 9 would be considered a blow to Epic and Dude Huge. Don't get me wrong here. I have wasted more time on Gears than any multiplayer game. I don't think they'll screw up the multiplayer and I know a majority of those glitches will get fixed sooner rather than later. Although ... you've got to admit ... seeing the Long Jump glitch and Mounts are just killing me. They should have fixed those issues by now!

*CONFIRMED* you droids must don't know the meaning of a FLOP

GEARS OF WAR 2 WILL KILL RESISTANCE 2 IN ALL REVIEWS AND SELLS
Jock  +   2128d ago
Im a PS3 fanboy but I can agree that Gears will most likely outsell RFOM2 but you'll be just stupid to think that GoW2 will be the better game...

RFOM2 Camapaign mode is twice the length of Gears plus 60 player Online..comapare to "5 VS 5"

8 player Co-op....just to name a few...lol...
LeGenDx  +   2128d ago
resistance 2 beta is fawking amazing
an its just a beta ? wtf dude. best game i played in awhile (besides mgs4 and co4 multi player) and the best thing about it is... ITS LAG FREE !
Why o why  +   2128d ago
the only negative thing ill say
is that this game would of been longer if they'd made it on 2 disks. Sequels are normally longer than their predecessors so it can only lead me to believe that the media size was not enough. Improved graphics visuals, physics and a lack of black hole compression means this game was ALWAYS going to need more space to truly be B,B and more B imo.
Jock  +   2128d ago
LOL
i swear some of these comments are funny as hell....well it looks like Gears didn't Flop like many had hoped , but then again it's just one review and it's from an Xbox magazine so we'll see how it fares in the coming days

but I still think RFOM2 will come out on top this time...

cr33ping_death  +   2128d ago
sweet good score :) but hopefully they patch the game, after seeing all those damn glitches it makes me worry that a bunch of @ssholes are going to ruin the game and boost up the way they did with the first one.
Andras84  +   2128d ago
WHATTTTT???????????
It's not a perfect 10??? what world are we living in????? / sarcasm.
ultimolu  +   2128d ago
My prediction was correct.
It's a good score regardless.
