Quantum Theory Vs Gears Of War

As we patiently await the anticipated PS3 exclusive, Quantum Theory... which will soon to be released early next year. (PS3)

Update At the end of the story the developer EPIC is ment to be stated instead of capcom.....but most of you probably knew that...

I swear, this is so stupid to be honest.
Dread  +   2215d ago
I agree

this is unnecessary.

It only creates undue pressure and expectations, and gives fuels to the fanboys.

If the game ends up being worse than Gears then people will say its sucks. Even if the game is amazing in its own rights.

similar to what happened to Killzone 1 and Halo 2.

too bad.

please no.. no more comparisons.. this generation of gaming will be remembered less for people playing game but more for people comparing them..

comparisonitis disease seems to have afflicted the majority of gaming journalists this generation

God! How lazy are these articles getting? We had the two part farce of the ODST/MAG comparison last week and this time round we're comparing another unreleased game though, at least, with one we've played!

There's a palette similarity and the bylky lead looks a bit Gearsy but that's where it, and Yecmo's admitted inspration from Gears ends, imo.

We have NO idea how this plays beyond being aware that both games have a cover susyem and are third person shooters(so why no Kill/Switch or MGS comparisons?). We don't know what mopdes, what the story's like or if there are any real areas where the games overlap.

Can't we just judge QT on it's own merits rather than insisting Tecmo's first ever game in the genre(and one which promises female NPC sidekicks, bladed weapon attacks and more melee fighting than Gears)be more original than the game we're comparing it to? There's also a distinct Art Nouveau flavour to QT's backgrounds not present in Gears and as Gears wears it's influences so very well itself maybe that could end up the biggest similarity when QT is released.

Right this minute, however, we have NOTHING bar screenshots to base our comparison upon so why bother? In the end they aren't even in direct competition as they exist on different latforms and aren't releasing anywhere near one another so the only people needing to choose would be late Gears adopting dual console owners! How many folk with a 360 haven't bught Gears yet-if they like the game anyway?

Pointless, fruitless article-just as bad as the last Halo/MAG one.

lets just play the game why keep pairing it!i was tired of all the prototype vs infamous crap too

Poopface the 2nd  +   2215d ago
Im not reading this trash site
I remember an article from them which said something like halo 3 only sells because a lack of games on 360. If that was the case it still wouldnt explain the over 9 million sales. This site is fanboy trash, and shouldnt be getting through this "N4G crap filter" that supposedly exists.

Its bad enough to compare games constantly. But comparing a game taht they have never played to gears(which they probably never played either) is stupid and desperate.

Why not just do a preview of the game instead of trying to make it some sort of competition. THE GAME ISNT OUT YET, DONT COMPARE IT WITH ONES THAT ARE> it makes you look like a complete moron.

They even wrote CAPCOM INSTEAD OF EPIC. Shows you how clueless they are about games, and gaming journalism.

if ninja blade was considered a "rip off" of ninja gaiden (in which any case they don't even play like each other)



then i don't see why quantum theory shouldn't be seen as a copy of gears. (at least those two games share the same camera and battle mechanics)
ThanatosDMC  +   2215d ago
I bet this game will suck. A copycat is never as good as the original. Just like every game that copied Devil May Cry... they try too hard. Also, it's Tecmo. Shooter game + Tecmo = ???

Five bucks there'll be some ninja moves or a ninja enemy or something ninja on here.

Quantum is obviously a Gears clone but...

What Quantum Theory needs is co-op. I;d be shocked and disappointed if Tecmo leave it as a solo single player campaign only, especially when the game utilizes two characters working together.
kaveti6616  +   2215d ago
I saw in an interview where one of the devs was talking about the two characters working together and the interviewer asked if there was going to be co-op and the developer got all nervous and said the girl was a AI or something.

Ju  +   2215d ago
What's so special about Gears? Have to force myself to finish that on the PC and its certainly not enough to convince me to look for the second part. So, what's so special about Gears ? I don't get it. Quantum can only be better. ...
dirthurts  +   2215d ago
Gears is amazing
I still play it a few times a week (the only multiplayer I play). Big fan of it myself.
Most people like it, but not for everyone.
This game looks fun too. We'll see. : )
HammockGames  +   2215d ago
To each his own
Personally, I love the shooting mechanics and overall feel of Gears, and I also like the graphics (perhaps not the very best around, but pretty nifty looking nevertheless). I dig it so much I played Gears 1 on both PC and 360 and I'm going through Gears 2 again (lost track of how many times now).

Quantum will have a high standard to live up to as far as measuring up to Gears. I hope it does, but it won't be easy.

nice try, but...no

the logic is not the same because we have actually played killswitch and gears.

So, how can this be a bad copy if no one has played it?

i bet you HAVEN'T played kill.switch,i bet most of the people on N4G haven't either
KionicWarlord222  +   2215d ago
Gears of war was inspired by kill switch cover system . But gears of war 2 ` s works better .
Dread  +   2215d ago

i have played kill.switch and it was fun, but not impressive.

Gears was fun and impressive.
Veneno  +   2215d ago
Nice pwn, Pirate.
pixelsword  +   2215d ago
@ KionicWarlord222-
Sorry Kionic, from what I've remember from both games the cover system for Gears of War and Kill.Switch works exactly the same and not inspired; granted I played Kill.Switch a long time ago, so I'm not 100% on that. Do you have specific examples of how the cover system is different? Thanks.

Now since you can take a hostage, I'll agree that the second one is better.

I gotta admit this does not look as good as gears which is the only 360 game I like btw but I'm sure it will be good
TheMART  +   2215d ago
Haha this game looks dull compared to Gears of War. Jees. It certainly borrows some of the Gears stuff, but its not even close.. PS3 users want Gears of War so much they get so happy with a sad clone like Quantum Theory. Funny.


@badbond ps3 fantard (below)

Stupid droid, I own a PS3 and I'll be getting Uncharted 2 the only game for 2009 besides KZ2, and God of War III and GT5 in 2010 (if GT5 isn't further delayed to be a PS4 launch title in 2012). You may keep MAG and Ratchet and clank CIT.

@ mooey the stupid cow

Gears 2 perfected some things that Killswitch did. Uncharted borrowed from Killswitch/Gears also. You can borrow, if one makes it better. This game Quantum Theory makes it worse.

Why didn't you reply lately on a post when you as a cow got pwned that bad as being raped by an elephant by the way mooey?

"This game Quantum Theory makes it worse. "

Clearly, you've played the game. Can I get your full review on it? How was the ending? The gameplay? The multiplayer?

Games copy games. Face the facts. You are just scared because it could potentially be better than the only other game Xbox has besides Halo. Boo hoo more.

As for the elephant comment, I have no clue what you're talking about.

Now that I've read the article, Quantum Theory seems better than Glitches of Snore: 2 out of 5

I'm actually with Mart on this one.

This game looks terrible!

Can you guys get over the fact that it's on PS3 for a second. Don't defend this crapfest. We have Heavy Rain, God of War III, Gran Turismo 5, Uncharted 2, FFVXIII, and various other INCREDIBLE titles coming out. This looks terrible!!!

Also...Mart...UNBLOCK ME!!!
Poopface the 2nd  +   2215d ago
all I have to say is watch the video and look at teh Animations
looks straight out of quake 2. Maybe even quake 1. Look at the enemies and the main character, looks like he crapped his pants.

Games borrow from games all the time, doesnt change that fact that this game looks bad.

Dont believe me? Look at the main character run at the very end of the video. Looks like hes running to catch THE SHORT BUS.
talltony  +   2215d ago
yea mart
hopefully its gears of war without the unbarable lag, latency, and inhaling chainsaw problems.
Still Mart right now it is way to early to tell and I wont be surprised if it actually gets better reviews than gears in the end but right now I have not seen enough gameplay footage and neither have you..

I fail to see how these games can be compared. Is it just because they are both over the shoulder shooters?

Because from what I have seen of the video thats where the similarities end.

Destructible cover? Has this person played Gears of War???
kaveti6616  +   2215d ago
In this case the use of the Unreal Engine 3 has made the two games look similar, although Tecmo is promising to bring some Japanese style to the game.
saimcheeda  +   2215d ago
I dont know which is better
but i like the name Quantum Theory more
Keowrath  +   2215d ago
I'm looking forward to Quantum AS LONG AS the speed increase is enough. I just could not get on with Gears due to the speed of movement. I really tried, I WANTED to enjoy gears when I finally got to play it last christmas but the speed of the game really put me off. I know I'm in the minority on that and I'm not saying Gears is a bad game... It's just not for me.

As long as the speed is increased in Quantum I'll be happy. I'm looking forward to throwing my girlfriend at enemies as a missile =)
Ju  +   2215d ago
Not alone (but, well, I think I belong to that minority, too). Its still Bore of War for me. Anyway, with some fighting action in Quantum, I can imagine your need for speed might be satisfied.

Too bad you dont play gears of war 2 because you would know there was a update .

Notice the title of your video is "December 24" .

Why did you bring up those games ? You were talking about gears of war.

Gears of war 2 is fun still . People found glitches that didn't interrupt my play time , no harm done .

just doesn't look 'right'. i was watching it thinking what was up and then i realised, the guns just don't seem very powerful. like when he's firing it the sound just doesn't sound v gd and when the bullet (or whatever they're firing) hits the enemies, it doesn't seem to register, like theres no blood or any sort of flinch from the enemy, just looks odd.

as u can tell, couldnt really explain it well but watch the video and try to see what i mean about the guns lol

I havent been following this game as I dont have a ps3
but I can see what you mean. Watching that video, it really looked cheap. Maybe because I was expecting it to be more like gears(after hearing all the comparisons), but it looked like the enemies just stood there and all the characters looked stiff.

The animations look like something out of quake 2. The enemies just stand there while you shoot them. Im sure they will improve it before release tho.

Bots are shaking their fear. First, a possibly superior game to gears, and second the possibility of the third gears going mulitplat. They could loose everything.

MS had a 2-game deal. They'll have to pay a lot to keep Gears 3 exclusives as the Gears IP is owned by EPIC and not MS. I said "loose everything" because a lot of the bots seem really tied to their system and sales.

It'll have to do a lot to be better than Gears 2. Gears 1 was...meh.

I'm calling it now, guys.

This game is gonna suck.

If the developers didn't take the time to make the gun "unannoying", what would make them care about making the game fun?

It's the little things that count.

Also, bad guy shooting into the air when you see him the first time...can we NOT do that anymore? What is this? 1997?

It looks wonderfully generic. I can't imagine it having a great storyline either.

It looks pretty darn "ok" right now.

Terrible reviews. Terrible game.

We'll get a demo to confirm it two weeks before release. Don't get your hopes up, kids. Wait for better games. Heavy Rain anyone?
Eiffel  +   2215d ago
QT Looks to dark to me. I mean that by literal terms. Turn the damn light on. Black everywhere. Where is this game taking place in the dark depths of satans asshole?

IMO I'm not a fan of either Gears or QT so consider my opinion humorous and neutral.
