IGN: Gears of War 3 Review

Gears of War 3 knows exactly what it is: a badass simulator.

Developer Epic Games strives to bookend the Gears trilogy with the most definitive third-person shooter gameplay of this generation while attempting to tidy up any and all loose story ends and shoehorn a bro-motional lump in your throat in the process. (Xbox 360) 9/10

And yet MW3 will still get a higher score from IGN.

Ontopic: IDK if i can trust any reviews after GeoW2. I hated that games MP. The SP was good though. It was nothing like the 1st one.

Oh expect a 9.5 for mw3 and a higher score in sound then bf3

On topic it looks like geow3 is gonna be around 90% on meta. Worth lookin into I guess

A 90 is "worth lookin into i guess" ? Sounds to me no matter what the score is ur not interested. Id say a 75 was worth lookin into but 90 sounds like a must buy....i guess

The only thing that leaves me a little baffled is the score on the story. I mean, Gears 1 story was... well... there was no story. At least worth writing home about.

All the other aspects of the game look good. Gameplay, graphics, etc, but the story?! Really?!

I hate how people judge a game only on reviews. For fuck sake, think for yourself!

And then people complain that there is nothing but FPS games this gen - the reason is so many people wont buy a genuinly good and unique game, like Enslaved - because it doesnt have a massive metacritic score. If people did buy into games that some critics dont like very much, they would find there is a ton of games that they enjoy - becuase a review is that reviewers PERSONAL OPINION on the game - and publishers would start taking notice and pay for more of these unique games to get made rather than us having to play the same shit in different skin over and over each year.

Uh, I can't think for myself what a game is like before I purchase it and play it myself. That's why I kind of like reading reviews. So if a game is terrible, I can pass on buying it and playing it, instead of wasting $60. Doesn't mean I trust every review, doesn't mean I only buy 90+ on metacritic games. But, thinking for myself in this scenario only gets me so far. I'm not going to stop reading reviews, but it's just important to take them with a grain of salt, imo.

Since when is "barely breaking the 9's" a bad thing when its 9 outta 10? I swear haters are gunna hate...

It currently sits at 92, which is identical to LBP2 - which if you recall is the only PS3 exclusive in the past year to reach that score.

Actually, to find a PS3 exclusive scoring anything higher then 92 metacritic you'll have to travel almost two years back in time to Uncharted 2. So I guess that comparatively "barely breaking 9's" is not all that bad. You need to get a little perspective for how rare 90+ titles are be it on any console or PC.

personally I can see where the guys coming with the points he brang up, Cheeesy? gears has always been a bit cheesy. As for the gameplay what I deduced from the beta was that there were numerous changes but it never straved away to much from the core mechanics so thats a point. Nevertheless I'll be buying it and enjoy it thorougly. MW3 will not get a rating that good, blacks op didn't get anything spectacualar and given mw3 identical look to mw2 IGN would be stupid to put up with that. MW2 is a good game you know but also signifies the point at which the gameplay began to get stale

Have you played MW3? If so, mind lending me your copy?

I don't like COD fanboys, but if there's one thing I hate more than them it's those that blindly crucify it. I swear half the idiots who do it haven't even played the games, just like you have no experience playing MW3.

Fair is fair, don't praise nor criticize that which you haven't played.

well now I'm not going to base my purchase on someone else's opinion i thoroughly enjoyed its multiplayer and if its story is predictable I'm fine with it as long as its fun after all thats what matter most to me =)
peowpeow  +   1326d ago
The co-op gets me. As long as there's co-op I will enjoy the SP immensely
Apotheosize  +   1326d ago
So Uncharted has to get a 9.5 or else N4G is going to get a lot crazier
Swiggins  +   1326d ago
I'd love for Uncharted to get a 9, that way none of the fanboys would have fucking ANYTHING to talk about....

We all know that Uncharted or Gears, none of it's gonna matter when Mass Effect 3 comes out ;) jk
majiebeast  +   1326d ago
Yeah you cant really hype up me3 after the abysmal Gamescom trailer talk about a stinker plus with dragonage 2 still in my mind i worry for me3.
TheBossMan  +   1326d ago
ME3 will be good, but you back off of my beloved Uncharted.

Metaphorically speaking, "Miranda's ass is spectacular, but Chloe's... yeah."
THC CELL  +   1326d ago
Uncharted will get most 10 apart from gamespot who take back hands and since when is 9 bad lol good one gears not my game but I see its worth a 9
shikamaroooo  +   1326d ago
Ign really like giving 9s
qwertyz  +   1326d ago

Simon_Brezhnev  +   1326d ago

peowpeow  +   1326d ago

At least ONE reviewer knows what he/she is talking about.
KRUSSIDULL  +   1326d ago
Lets see if Modern Warfare 3 gets the "Been there done that"

On topic: 9/10 is a almost perfect score also havent they removed the x.5 reviews on IGN? Remember 5/10 is an average. Looking at the comments it looks like PS3 fans is downplaying the scores after the Xbox 360 fans where downplaying Grand Turismo 5.
whitezagetsu71  +   1326d ago
Gears 3 reviews are looking just as good as LBP2
looks like Im gonna be addicted to another game this year
seriously I just cant stop playing LBP2 its worst than being addicted to meth.....no I dont smoke meth its just a comparison
Sticky__Rice  +   1326d ago
Can't wait to play this and uncharted! I'm tired of first person shooters.
Brownghost  +   1325d ago
a 9 is amazing hope i dont see people say "ah 9, ill wait for it to be in the bargain bin" cant wait for this to come at my doorstep, what a great year:D
