Rated 9 out of 10 by PsychoQwirk420 Like Gears of War, but NOT Gears of War!
I've played Gears of War 1 & 2 with a friend, and loved it! I don't own an Xbox 360, so I was psyched to play this one. I read a couple reviews and everyone says it played a lot like Gears of War. Well, YES it does, BUT it's not Gears. By that I mean if your looking for Gears, then play that. If your looking for a good third person shooter/action game LIKE Gears, then this is your game! In my opinion, it's pretty sweet. Haven't played any of the online yet cause the Playstation Network is still down, but I can't wait to try it. My only complaint is that some if not most of the trophies are semi-easy. They're hidden too, which I can't really figure out why, but overall...I recommend at least giving this game a shot. My advice would be to rent it for a night and see how you like it before buying it, or just keep renting it till you're done. Whatever your poison is.
Rated 8 out of 10 by LT77 A lot like Gears.. not bad at all though.
This is not a bad game at all. I've read so many negative reviews about this game that i waited until the price went down to under $29 to buy it. The reason that I still want to buy this game regardless of the negative reviews? thats' because I tried the demo and it wasn't bad at all. It's so sad that most of the reviews about this game were so biased. If Gears of War didnt exist, this game probably would get a rating of 7.5 or 8 in all fairness because most reviewers compare this game to Gears of War. Yes the gameplay is very much like Gears but so what it's just like Dante's Inferno is to God of War but Dante's Inferno is still a fun game on its own. This game certainly can't beat Gears of War but it does have some likable differences. So if you're into shooters you definitely should give this one a try. Can't wait til I get my hands on Gears 3.
Rated 4 out of 10 by PoketheMind Not all attempts end in Success
I hear that this game is compared to Gears of War. And yes I thought about that when I first played it as well even before reading others saying the same. But what I ALWAYS said was this was "Playstation's attempt at trying to make a GEARS OF WAR."
The graphics are very nice and similar style to a Gears of War. The controls are easy to figure out and easy to hop right in. My problem with this title is the repetitiveness and the linearity. This game does look very good and I would recommend this title ONLY to a Casual Gamer....Because it is the same nonsense over and over again ....the enemies are not challenging ....you follow a set path and just Duck and Shoot over and over again.....I lost interest with this title almost immediately.
Rated 0 out of 10 by emerio aka, drake anthony It will be great but...
Because of Gears of War it will be hated on. I have been following this game since it's announcement. I'm psyched and am pre-ordering. I just hope KOEI doesn't release the game and forget about it. I hope they show appreciation to this title and release DLC / Patches. People will grow to like it. It happens in games. I love the Idea of a Fantasy Action Shooter. I hope this games hype grows near release. Kinda sucks they went multi-platform but I guess it's expected with the acceptance it got from fans of the Gears franchise. Still sucks though, this was Gears for the PS3... And since GoW didn't go multi-platform this game shouldn't have either.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Demayor The demo ruined it for me
After playing the demo over the weekend, I don't feel as excited as I was about this game. It just didn't hold my interest through the demo. The weapons felt weak and other than the reticule and the rate of fire, they didn't feel much different. It was also hard to see their difference visually. The artisitc style of the game is also something don't like. The modern gothic theme seems like it was trying too hard to look cool. The environments in the demo were too simple. Pretty much large room with crystal or rock looking walls and a few places to take cover.
Rated 0 out of 10 by TD_ThA_mOnStA_609 Proceed with caution?
I'm not sure really on what I could say about Quantum Theory. It'll be interesting to see on how the whole "living tower" aspect will come into play in this game, and the art style is remnant of that of Gears of War. The only thing that's got me a bit worried about this title is that it's made by Tecmo and KOEI, and neither one of those developers (I believe) have made any shooter titles. Mostly, I'd proceed with caution if you're thinking of getting this because of KOEI. Their track record is pretty sketchy when it comes to games in general.
Rated 0 out of 10 by wargod217 Gears of War...
I played gears of war though I don't own an xbox. And I have to be honest, I'm bias when it comes to game systems. So the fact that I'm getting a GoW type game for my Ps3 is awesome news. I gave Dantes Inferno a try, and yes it is a God of War wanna be, but it has something God of War don't have, and thats multiplayer online coming in April. Gears of War had multiplayer, and that made the game that much more fun. Let's hope the games online is as awesome as Uncharted 2 was when they went multi. I'm keeping an open mind on this one.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Mushu Good Enough
The first few chapters (VERY first few) were cool. Then, it got really old because all you do is progress, shoot hordes of enemies, and then move on again. I like the whole duck and cover, but with so much action and many enemies shooting at you...I expect the controls to react faster. I'll press reload or change guns mid-battle, only to find out my gun hasn't reloaded or it hasn't switch. If you die, you will have to start right AT the checkpoint! So....try not to die, or you'll watch the scene and do everything over..and over..
Rated 0 out of 10 by Benx918 My Opinion
Quantum Theory is to Gears of War as Dante's Inferno is to God of War. That doesn't mean it will be a bad game. Dante's Inferno is pretty cool but is nowhere near God of War's level. I feel like Quantum Theory will be the same. It'll be a pretty good game but nowhere near as good as Gears of War.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Nymphilis This game is horrible
I'm sorry i played this for a couple hours, got thru plenty of the levels...the game is choppy and poorly executed, i wouldnt recomend this if u enjoy third person shooters...it kills the feel and is not fun at all...so i would recommend u save your money and not even buy this game
