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.
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.
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.
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.
a lot like gears of war
great gameif you like gears of war this game is alot like it very fun game ..would recommend ......
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.
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.
Here's my theory
I very much enjoyed this title don't know why there is so much hate out for this game I would put this game in my top ten for this year hands down I would MUCH rather play this game then beat gof all over again for the 3rd time now its 29 bucks go buy this I promise u will enjoy
I loved Gears of War and I was excited that this game was just like it. We finally have a game just like it on the PS3. People don't know what they are talking about when they say its a bad game.
Dont Buy It
Horrible storyline, HUGE LET DOWN! go play pokemon instead :)
