video review of gears of war 2 is now live at 1up and they have awarded the game an 'A'. 1up awarded the first game an 'A+'
Poor droids are hiding in shame.
Still much weaker than LBP. It looks like a tie with Resistance 2, though.
r2 is b better besuese of its scale dont be silly. i feel sad for you
looks like they stepped the gore up did anybody see the river of blood
R2 is no flop. I enjoyed the Beta. But to be on topic. Gears 2 will dominate holiday
Yeah I think that too.i dont see which game can go against Gears 2 to dominate this Xmas. Now lets see if it actually beats Gears 1 first week sales. I bet it will.
Concidering the install base is alot bigger this time it should be way higher first week sales then gears 1
GoW2 deserves it A. But so does R2.
It should surpass the first week sells of the original easily...I mean given all the pre-order incentives this time around. You got gift cards galore, radio controlled cars, map packs, golden weapons, cheaper 360s, and of course the fan base of the original.
definition of Next-Gen gaming.
LBP is a much better definition. Gaming 2.0. User generated content is nowhere to be seen in gears 2.
Can't wait to play it. A few things about the Gears 2 reviews going around have surprised me, but it's possible the gaming media has finally grown out of some bad habits.
Looks like Gears is what it is... Stellar, baby.
why am i not surpised about this review. 1up thats all i have to say.
It's simply BADASS!!!
Go cry to your mommy maybe she'll get you a xbox360.
I already have a heater, thanks. Congrats on your only AAA exclusive of the year (Fable 2 is 89%, sorry) (while we had MGS4, LBP, Wipeout, Bioshock, Resistance 2...) Even Wii fans got more AAA exclusives than Xbox fans this year.
Do you constantly view Metacritic just to point out when a game gets 1% lower score?
LittleBigPlanet got an A+ from 1UP. LBP=GOTY, wait and see ;)
shut up ps3 bots go to hell with ur sackboys
Those reaver segments remind me of the Pegasus segments from "the" GOW2.
interpret the 1up score as 100? Isn't that A+? (Confused) Nice metacritic though. Its at 96.
http://www.nouvelordremondi... !!!! Lol i just had to add that. I dont know why it reads it like 100.
The first game too me was boring.I just don't understand whats with this game....
and the good reviews keep on pouring in
I'm a little confused. R2 has the same things as Gears2 but they get a B+. Gears2 up'd the multiplayer but so did R2. They said Gears2 has a big improvement as said by 1up but so did R2. So I don't get the big difference in score. Don't get me wrong I'll be getting both, but I think both of them should have gotten a pretty similar score.
They are fan boys.....Honestly R2 deserved a much better score but insomniac wouldn't pay for it..nor Sony....but MS would
But that's been the standard this generation. Really, just watch the video reviews and judge for yourself. Don't pay too much attention to the final score. According to review scores, Halo 3 is still a better game than Resistance 2. But that's just one example. It's important to remember that 360, PS3, and Wii exclusives really can't be compared properly. There's just too much of a tech divide between the three systems. Gears 2 is a great game for the 360; just don't try comparing it directly to say something like Resistance 2, or The Conduit.
yea I will be judging it for myself thats why im getting both. I love R2 and Gears2, but a lot of other people judge by scores, and if your gonna judge someone judge fairly, especially if your getting paid to man. I know everyone has their own preference/biased opinion on the game, and people only like it when it is in favor with what they want, but if 1up is going to give pros to Gears2 for the same thing R2 did but give R2 lower marks. Totally wrong and unfair.
I never said i was not getting the game. I just don't think its gods gift to gaming..(fable2 is) I found the first one to be boring but I still want to play the second...I just don't like how bias the media is when it comes to PlayStation exclusives and its just a known fact it isn't because games aren't up the par...for example MGS4 should have gotten a perfect score but it was plagued with just under perfect....what kinda BS is that ...I honestly believe its because its one the PlayStation only it gets disenfranchised
Maybe Gears2 is more fun than res2.
True, if not the R2 co-op (8 player) is better then gears horde. Both games almost offer the same thing (other then FPS and TPS)
Is a boring game...why would the second one be less boring
There is a 'bug' in metacritic, they show 1UP rated gears 2 as 100, which they didn't since they gave A / A+. If A is 100, A+ is 120 ? I guess MS money is good for metacritic ?
They don't understand the context of all the review scores they account for, and they don't account for all reviews. The fact that Microsoft uses Metacritic in order to delete XBL content is funny. If the score is below a certain range, downloadable games get taken off automatically.
Thats the same exact thing i realized right now! LBP got an A+ and it was converted to a hundred... Ok... But an A is definitely not a hundred, i think it is in the range of a 93-96! Plus a B+ is not an eighty three more like an 86-88! Very unprofessional from Metacritics!
1up gave RESISTANCE2 a B+/A+ and meta translated that to 83, not 89. 1up gave gears an A/A+ and they gave it a 100. Not to mention they didnt count R2 highest reviews. Metacritic cant be used as a factual source.
