Gameplayer are reporting on the exact time that the Gears of War 2 review embargo lifts for all the major sites. And have looked to get the excitement building with a range of Gears related reads.
7 hours. No matter what happens, I predict massive amounts of tears, calls of bribery and fanboyism from one side or the other. LET THE GAMES BEGIN! For kicks, we should post predicted reviews from IGN, Eurogamer, 1Up and Shamespot. Whoever is spot on, or closest for all 4 wins the respect of their peers.
IGN: 9.4 1up: A Eurogamer: 10 Gamespot: 9.5 Gametrailers: 9.7 There you go, added gametrailers aswell
haha thats exactly what I would expect from these sites :)
SuperM... you were scarily damn close to actual... IGN: 9.5 1up: A Eurogamer: 90 only one you weren't remotely close to, surprising too. Gamespot: N/A Gametrailers: 95
dunno..what to expect ..but straight from Ncroal's (sony lover) twitter account: "Credits just rolled on Gears 2. This bromantic action title could be the "Top Gun" of videogames." lol
Unless you hate Top Gun, like I do. :-/ Heh, "bromantic".
hahaa i hate it too..but Its freakign Dom and Marcus ..its accepted
Yeah, I guess, and they don't walk around wearing only towels, which is always a bonus.
"but Its freakign Dom and Marcus ..its accepted" Who cares? Their storyline is about as interesting as that of Hulk Hogan and the undertaker. You have to be a fanboy to really just "accept" a storyline even before you have played the game.
Finished the game yesterday. I give it a 9/10. Graphics . . . AWESOME. Gameplay . . . AWESOME. Story . . . mediocre. . . . Ending . . . HORRIBLE I almost considered giving it a 8.9 due to the fact the end is so bad.
Excuse me! Make sure to edit your post.I'm sure SPOILER ALERT needs to be included in your post
"Story . . . mediocre. . . . Ending . . . HORRIBLE " Why is that a spoiler ? That is his Opinion.
I'm looking forward to all those perfect scores to come in soon and the sound of all the droids crying in the background.
http://www.metacritic.com/g... 89% for Fable 2 ..no longer AAA check MGS4 and LBP ---both got most amount of perfect scores LBP is 96% at metacritic > all x360 exclusive games as for Gears 2 --90 from OXM 91 from XBOX WORLD and 5/5 from Gamepro( Resistance 2 will also get that) GOTY 08?? ROFL even XBW and OXM gave Fallout3/Fable 2 and other games better scores than Gears 2 u mean GOATY since the game is GOAT SH**
Someone is Jealous.
Gears of War 1 was much better than this...
....please enlighten us on how you came to that conclusion?
Robotnik is obviously some kind of pre-attack vanguard. Such a bold statement and not explanation whatsoever. darkequitus: PSN/XBL
Finished gears 2 three days back and loved it more than gears 1 in every sense possible expect the ending was as horrible as first one's
The game is definitely going to be getting 8.5s-9.5s/10. Not looking forward to everyone crying about how good (or bad) it is and make the inevitable comparison to R2. Get over it.
couldn't agree more...I am not looking forward to what will happen when the R2 and Gears 2 reviews start flying around...but the simple truth is, both are great games...and neither will be GOTY from any reputable source... not only do both games have to go up against the groundbreaking MGS4 and LBP...but also the insanely overrated GTAIV (which many sites will give GOTY just to simply back up the perfect score they gave it last April...its almost like they have to in order to keep any integrity)...this isn't a year where a 93-94 average means anything...LOTS of games have recieved that so far... and lastly...sales don't mean anything either...most keep screaming about how Gears 2 will sell more than anything, which automatically makes it the 'best'...I've said it before...shat movies and shat bands/music groups/singers sell tons of copies as well...doesn't mean they are any better in any way whatsoever...
@Kleptic Gears 2 will win the award for best 3rd person shooter. R2 will easily wipe the floor with COD5 and Farcry and win the award for best FPS. Overall, I also think the GOTY award will go to either MGS4 or LBP.
Bubbles for you three ;) I think it's between GTA IV, MGS4 and LBP. Unless Left 4 Dead is insane and changes that, which looks to me incredibly unlikely, I think most main sites will give it to one of those 3. LBP being the most deserving though IMO, because of the insane achievement by Media Molecule, second highest exclusive metacritic score this gen, and their a small and unproven developer from England. Congratulations to them.
I know this is a jerk thing to say, but I can't stand seeing it anymore. I know no one really writes with correct grammar online, but I need to point out one error that I see almost daily that just tears me up everytime I see it. The name of a company or website is a singular noun. "Gameplayer are reporting..." is just awful English. This includes all the statements like, "Microsoft/Sony are jerks." Please change this to something like, "The folks at Gameplayer..." I just can't stand to see it again and again.
Fair enough. I figured people would disagree, which is why I apologized in advanced. I just hate how the mainstream media looks down on gamers, suggesting that we are uneducated and/or not ambitious. I feel that egregious errors in elementary school grammar were not helping the cause. But if no one agrees with me I won't mention it again. I enjoy this site, and will keep my mouth shut, I guess.
I'm Offended eyeh.
IGN: 9.6 1up: A- Eurogamer: 9.5 Gamespot: 9.3 Gametrailers: 9.5
@Kleptic well sales mean a lot to devs.
i would rather GOTY to go to MGS4
