This, or Assassins Creed 2 will be Game of the Year IMO.

not a chance........MW 2 and uncharted 2 got it locked.......probably mw2.........game reviewers wont risk having an exclusive as GOTY.....even though theyve shown tremendous love for U2 so far(even xbox websites, lol)


batman is cools as **** though.............i have my doubts about that 9.3 though.....i need to see the trophy list to see if the 9.5 in lasting appeal is justified...if the joker is free then this game desevres a 10, though :alcoholic

^ True Story.

It's between MW2 and Uncharted 2.

This getting a 9.3 is beyond me, I didn't really like the demo.

The demos are really misleading though. I just saw the video review and it looks pretty damn good. i'll definitely be getting this.

cosign the peeps calling MW 2 or Uncharted 2 GOTY...

as far as this game goes, i wasnt impressed, i actually didnt finish the demo...

is it just me or have single player games **** the bed this gen?!?!

i like AC and Uncharted... also Resistance I and II were decent campaigns, but other than that they are WAY TOO LINEAR.... its "do this in this exact order, and THIS only"

i dont know, the graphics were solid (Unreal Engine) but the gameplay was lacking IMO

Have you ever played it? The first one completely immerses you in the experience, its one of the only games where the relationships between characters felt real. The shooting elements are good as well as the puzzle elements/climbing, it's a game which misses what more games miss now, it's downright FUN. It' storytelling is far beyond what the usual aliens vs space marines war type story, it's really story heavy and you actually look forward to watching the cutscenes as oppose to skipping through them.

I actually ran through the game 5-6 times, it's proberbly one of my favourite games this gen. I actually prefered it to the original Gears even though both are excellent

Very good game. Been playing it for a few days now and I gotta say I keep getting nice surprises. I haven't played the maps as Joker yet but will soon.

Sounds to me like you should get your hands on Fallout 3 or Oblivion. Games where you aren't bound by this. Those games are total freedom to do whatever you're pleased in a major world. You can't get it wrong (well.. Unless you die)

Great game. On my 3rd play-through right now, and looking to get all trophies and 100% the game.

this game deserves a 9.3. Insane. best I could manage was a 40 hit combo.
