Tecmo’s newly released demo of Gears of W-, err…Quantum Theory was added to the PlayStation Network this past Tuesday. We all know impersonation is a form of flattery, but really Tecmo?
Checked this out on Tuesday. Wow, blatant Gear of War rip. Other than tossing in the chick to help out it is unoriginal.
I wasn't total crap but it is no where close to being as good or looking as good as gears!
...then consider Gears flattered. There's no question what game they tried to emulate here. The downside: it's flattery gone to hell in a handbasket. The difference being that Quantum is just nowhere near the same level of Gears (judging from the demo). Graphically, meh. Gameplay, meh - especially melee combat. Overall, meh. To me, 3 "mehs" = bargain bin. I love me some Gears, but this game doesn't look to be anywhere near the same quality. At least it's fall & there's plenty of other good games coming up to pick from.
...otherwise it's meh. If they can smooth the controls out it could be an average third person shooter nothing more :( The story seemed uninteresting the guns were blah and I was indifferent which one I used. For me for this demo controls just killed this from even being a rental. I deleted it immediately after skipping the little cinema after the boss fight.
Omg, this demo was horrid. It felt like the first time i played gears on my 360. Not saying gears is bad, but I don't like it. Anyways, as I started up the QT demo, and finally able to play, I didn't move. I thought to myself, if I start moving and cant mover 360 degrees I'm not going to like this. I moved the analog in a circle, and he only moved Left, down, right and up. I immediately thought of GeOW. I didn't want to just turn it off and say i didn't play, so I killed my first enemy, got this cool scene when I blew off his head. I moved out of cover feeling like I'm controlling a Hess truck and I died. The game is a re-skinned gears, like it or not. It was a very horrible experience for me.
Wtf? They are still making this game?
Yeah and it's still crap as it always seemed like it was.
Kinda fun, but average across the board (from my impressions of the demo). I thought that they were using the NGS2 engine for this, but I could be wrong. If they were, the game really should have looked better than it did. Oh, and it might just be in the demo, but the compressed vid cut-scenes were awful. Dante's Inferno did that and it looked like $hit. Note to devs: lots of people have HD tvs now and don't want 480p cut-scenes.
Yeah, and I think $20 is being generous. :D
This is something to get when it's 20$. Not a bad game by far, just nothing outstanding.
Whats the point of playing a game this bad even if it was that cheap?
this game is pretty bad. Baroque art concept is interesting, but everything else is crap, it needs MUCH polishing. Nothing to do with Gears of War.
Its like dante's inferno and god of war 3 all over again -_-.
Admirable. So why can't you people appreciate what's going on here knowing western games don't make a DENT in that area? I for one applaud them for doing something that's beyond their scope in their gaming culture and I will support this game even if it's not up to standard this gen. Meanwhile, I'll wait for a western dev to create something like Bayonetta, Biohazard, Okami, Katamari, ICO or Valkyria Chronicles. Good luck with that. -End statement
Seems like a JP developer trying to imitate, a western game, so they can tap into the western audience. Rather than the other way round. Anyway, gave the demo a go and it's really awful. The whole game is like texture hell, gameplay aside - which is exactly the same as Gears of War (which isn't the best in the first place, for sure) but without the cinematic appeal and half decent story.
we all knew this game would be some cheap Gears knock-off and videos prove that
the demo graphics were abit bland and not anything to be in ahhh about,but least it wasnt a jaggiigest,ill deffo pick this up..when its half price lol
if there are 2 phrases i am tired of hearing its "gears of war clone" and "wow clone". gears did not invent the gruff spacemarine trope, its been in existence forever. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/... couldnt you say gears is a clone of unreal which is a clone of quake, which is a clone of doom? im sure alot of you guys never played quake or doom. sure gears added a cover mechanic , but it did not invent it. what if this game tried to deviate from the gruff spacemarine trope and used a voice actor like lance bass from nsync? would you guys like it any better? probably not as it would not be manly enough. this game does plenty to seperate itself from gears. they have added a female companion with an interesting combat mechanic. how many other games do you get to toss a girl about as she cuts the enemy to pieces? where in gears do you find a female anywhere? oh yeah at the base giving lab analysis and probably cooking. the only thing that looks ALOT like gears is elements of the HUD. the rest looks like random space shooter XYZ just like gears does. sure the art style is dark and looks like gears. sure gears art was dark and looked like unreal, sure unreal had marines like the alien movie which had a dark art style. sure aliens was based of geigers art that was dark. this goes on forever.
