9.2/10

Not bad at all.  Seems the Bulletstorm team did a superb job :)  My wallet is hurting this month :(

Obviously fake since IGN are Sony fanboys.

Meh, I might rent it some day for the campaign but the multiplayer doesnt interest me at all so that keeps me from buying it.

Sitting at 79 on metacritic. Seems like a solid addition to the series.

I think most people who discredit IGN point to specific reviewers, and not the site as a whole.

Sony and Microsoft are saving God of War 4 and Gears of War 4 for next gen.

Hence the prequels.

Should be a good rental though.

Wow only 9 comments in and cows are already pressed flatter than a pancake. The amount of butt hurt in this thread is at dangerous levels.

amazing. looks like judgement just replaced halo 4 as the new console graphics king. :shock:

BulletStorm was an extremely fun game, so I had faith in the PeopleCanFly team; however, I'm a little burnt out on Gears, and I haven't even played 3 yet.

I am going to pick it up for that new mode inspired by MOBA and DOTA

I have read most of the reviews. I think we all knew it was gonna be more of the same and that seems to be what it is. Even though they like the single player more than the 2nd and 3rd, it just feels like more of the same in the long run. Same thing happened with New Mario on the Wii and God Of War. It will end up in the low 80's it looks like evn though it is a better game than the last one.
But at least the campaign is a nice 10 hours long (according to IGN anyways). If Gamespot gives it a 7 or a 9, it is still Gears. So that is a good thing.

lulz, i wish greg miller or collin would have reviewed god of war. it probably would have gotten a 10

:lol: It would have gotten an 11/10. 'When I rant about why GoW: Ascension is better than just about anything on the market -- about why I think it's my new favorite game of all time -- I don't talk about the fights, the new ability to throw weapons back at enemies or collecting the game's well-hidden treasures. I talk about the heart-wrenching section where Kratos is by himself and completely lost. He's on his last legs, he's desperate, and I'm right there with him. I'm pushing him through the journey at hand and it's clear that it's a game, but as he stumbles, seeks shelter and loses hope, my heart breaks.'

I think they are doing what strongdeadlift did even after the score changed. I don't think they realize that strongdeadlift is a troll.

That was from his Uncharted 3 review. I changed a few key words to turn it into his God of War review.

Its embarrassing for everyone that Greg Miller allowed to review games for a major website. Good lord. :lol:

Almost everyone realizes he's a troll. They are just mocking him for how bad his trolling is.

Straight from the IGN Review. How many gears releases will it take to fix these problems? " Judgment is the fourth Gears of War game in a row to personify its villain poorly. " " Also, the A.I. allies, while fine combatants, tend to forget about human-controlled characters. Teammates are as likely to revive your down-but-not-out self as they are to watch you bleed out. It's nothing new to Gears, certainly, and that makes their occasional incompetence even more irritating."

and it still scored better than god of war :lol:
#38 Posted by timbers_WSU (5753 posts) -

Gamespot's pre-review looks good. He is probably giving it an 8.5 or 9. Actually if it gets below an 8 the review will count. If not the Cows will rely on the Meta-critic score. I think that is how it works these days.

Speaking of Painkiller the new one stinks. Don't waste the time. It is no where near the original in quality.

A lot of critics are slamming it with scores in the 60s and 70s. C'mon, it's undoubtedly better than that. But there's a lot of people out there of the opinion that if you release so many installments of a game in a given time period then they absolutely must score the newer ones lower even if they are better than the older ones they loved. Usually goes something like this for games in a given great franchise: 95, then 90, then 85, then 75, etc. And most of the time the one that got 75 will be just as good if not better than the ones that got 95 or 90. Seems the only way to avoid this treatment is to put an enormous amount of time between your installments, like perhaps the way Valve does it with Half Life. In situations like that you might be permitted to get a 95 or so for every game in the series. Yeah, that'll drive fans of the franchise nuts waiting for it but at least you won't get screwed by the critics. If something is good it's good. This crap that says that something that was good isn't anymore after just two years or so is nonsense. And don't give me this silliness about "It's too much like the last one therefor I must deduct 10-20 percentage points from the score despite it being fun." If something ain't broke it don't need fixing.
