Gears vs CoD3: Xbox Live Reviews

Xbox Live veterans know that even the greatest of games can be an online failure if the servers are inadequate - the original Live iteration of Call of Duty 2 on Xbox Live was a nightmare until a patch was released that made it one of the 'must play' games on the service.

Gears of War is already one of the biggest and most successful games of the year, but how does it fare on Xbox Live? What about Call of Duty 3 too?

I'll be playing COD3 far more online than GOW.

Das is't fantastik.

"However, Gears longevity is sure to be guaranteed by its multiplayer modes t.."
Yeah, wishfull thinking.. what modes?

"However, those who are expecting a revolution in the shooter genre will be slightly disappointed."
Ok, you understand now.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great game, but seriously, no CTF? And other objective modes?

Marriot VP6450d ago

capt, a Gears patch is already being made. Yah I don't like patches but I can't refuse it.

and this game wouldn't work with CTF. Now slayer where you respawn multiple times is something I'd like to see.

Anything to get the frenzy level up just a tad :->

Personally i don't like capture the flag.
but i want Would multiple spawn setting at least 5 piece since the games can belong. 8 player option and a Rumble pit,And Random playlist like halo. Believe it or not i have yes to experience any lag on GOW. Maybe a Character movement studder but no lag amazingly.

you don't need the multiple spawns cause you have multiple rounds in each match. i never feel like i am waiting to long for a round to be over with either. I don't think having multiple lives or spawns would work with the dynamics of the game, but you never know, it may make it even better. frankly GOW is the most fun i have online, better then halo 2 online in my opinion.

One thing that i would like to have changed is how when you are stuck with a grenade and you blow up the guy who stuck you it counts as a suicide to him. I think that once the grenade is stuck in you, you become the weapon and who ever you get close to and dies should count as your kill, and of course the guy who stuck you get a kill to.

I personally love GOW online, but also will be playing alot of Rainbow Vegas! I'm skipping COD3!

Boink6450d ago

CTF wouldn't work with gears at all.

a slayer version would be awesome, with respawns and a race to say 15-20 kills. also a last man standing type of slayer.

Switch and PS5 owners are gonna love this.

Every article, console fanboy trite, all these years later. Let me explain it AGAIN, in simple terms for the fanboys. Sentient human gamers do have their preferred platform, however they will buy and own multiple platforms so they can enjoy the games they want to enjoy. I own and have owned multiple platforms, Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft and now Valve, simply to enjoy a wide range of games across a broad spectrum of platforms. It's great. You don't have to pick a 'team' and cheer them on through thick and thin, dissing the other 'team'. And for you 'VenomUK' to state 'Switch and PS5 owners are gonna love this', proves that you're a bit behind. Learn, enjoy, live, develop, trust and coexist if you can, life is better that way.

Well said.
This is why i never understand fanboying over hardware. This is not like a sports team, its just hardware. Why some people have this mentality to pick a side and stick with it and refuse to look at other platforms, therefore depriving themselves of games that are only available on those platforms. They are suppose to be gamers after all?

FinalFantasyFanatic185d ago

It's practically guaranteed to come to PC as well, if that's the case, I might pick it up after it gets a discount or two.

Thank goodness for pro gamer companies like Microsoft.... It's about time we unified platforms where now only corporate suits benefit! Pro gamers all the way. Thanks Microsoft!
