You must be out of your mind to give this game a 10, or 12 years old.
This game has almost no positives. The only positive I can think of is Kevin Spacey. Without him, this game truly would be a zero. The graphics on next gen are great.
Multiplayer still has the same issues. I get 10 hit markers, but the guy doesn't die. I die after two shots. Spawn kills are out of control. I have at least 100 spawn deaths since 11/3. Spawn, someone behind me, I die.
There is nothing new to this game except guns and maps, and the AWFUL boost jump, which ruins gameplay. THIS ISN'T TITANFALL, but Sledgehammer sure did their best to copy it. At least Titanfall remains playable.
All in all 4/10. Same CoD. Same angry children who don't deserve an Xbox One. Same old crap. Don't listen to the fanboys and don't spend $60 on this trash
Edit/Update: Another day in and still the same garbage. 10 hit markers on a guy, yet I die in two shots. The multiplayer maps are way too wide open. Spawn kills are getting even worse. Literally spawned when a teammate was running by with a guy chasing him and died instantly. Spawned, started running and got shot in the back isntanteously. Multiplayer is utter garbage in this game. Even Ghosts was better.
Part 2: Finally experienced all the multiplayer maps. Outside of the campaign, which I just beat on veteran, the game just isn't fun. Spawning and getting instantly killed more than 20% of the time, a nd going negative almost every game because of that fact is rediculous. Shooting someone first and shooting them more, getting killed. It's just not fun. The game is not fun. After two days, I will be returning this piece of garbage. Do not waste your time. And do not waste your money.… Expand

It makes even rerunning missions a bitFirst off, this game is quite a masterpiece. The free roam ability and loot finding is awesome. It makes even rerunning missions a bit different. The score is absolutely amazing. I'm going to dissect many people's complaints here. Let's take a look at the reasons for negative comments:
1. Over 50% of the reviewers are people who just log on to post negative reviews regarding things. Click on some of their names and see.
2. People expected a Halo clone. Hellllloooo? Bungie left Halo because they were done with it. They said from the start that this would be more similar to an MMOFPS than Halo.
3. "Voice chat is limited/people don't talk." Then why did you get it on PS4 and not XBOX? Having both a PS3 and an Xbox 360 for years, Xbox is far noisier when it comes to people talking. Granted it's mostly kids but... Also, voice is in the game. That's all Bungie needed to do. The fact that it's limited does not matter.
4. "It doesn't have an offline mode." This shouldn't even be a complaint. You knew this was coming from day one.
5. "We have to shoot the same enemies, all the time." This complaint is coming from the same people who expected a Halo clone...where all you do is shoot the same enemies...all the time....on different little maps...talk about finding fault with everything...
6. "I've played for 15 hours and I'm bored." No you haven't. When these complaints came out this morning, the game had been released for literally 6 hours. Plus, this is geared toward an MMO. Have you ever played an MMO for 6 hours and quit because it was a bump and grind? I don't think so. There's a leveling process. In every RPG type game. If you played WoW for 6 hours at launch, every quest was fetch and kill, and you'd barely hit level 10 in that time (Cap was 60). How about you actually play the game and see?
Seriously...put in some time and effort...even Bungie said be weary of day one reviews. Sigh, sucks to be impatient I guess.
This game is worth the money...pick it up.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.1Sep 4, 2013All the 0 reviews are laughable. None of them have valid information on the game. It's all "SERVERS WON'T LAUNCH LOL BAD." Or "LOL I DON'TAll the 0 reviews are laughable. None of them have valid information on the game. It's all "SERVERS WON'T LAUNCH LOL BAD." Or "LOL I DON'T LIKE THE UI SO THAT MAKES IT BAD." Get a grip. Have none of you ever played MMOs before? Diablo 3 on pc launch was worse than this and people are praising the crap out of this game...were you around at WoW launch? That was a freaking ordeal. Just shut up and wait to play like everyone else. They're giving you the week you lost free time. And BTW you could log on I've been on every day since launch. You fools have no idea what you're talking about.
The game itself is beautiful. Amazing. The quests in the beginning, while tailored to extreme newbies, lay out the plot for a great story down the line all the while offering a tutorial of the game's UI which, by the way translates on to ps3 amazingly. I can do things almost as fluidly as if with a keyboard and mouse (and I haven't even gotten the complete hang of it yet!) the fact that you can switch jobs later as well as combine classes to make more advanced classes is just awesome. Don't see that in too many MMOs these days.
The score OMG. Amazing. I could listen to the music for days. Really. Get on this.
Combat is fun and the main story lines only get better as you go on.
I suggest picking this game up now that server issues have been alleviated and we can actually play.

Average User Score: 5.3Mar 20, 2013First off, I don't believe this game deserves a 10. I'm rating it a 10 to combat the 0's and 1's who can't handle change.
Let me begin byFirst off, I don't believe this game deserves a 10. I'm rating it a 10 to combat the 0's and 1's who can't handle change.
Let me begin by stating that this, in its own right, is a great game. Every battle is unique, I've died on one part and when I retried, it was a completely different set of enemies that attacked. That's a huge plus you need to be able to actually use weapons and their strengths/weaknesses to your advantage instead of spraying and praying (I'm talking hardcore+ not on easy of course). I've seen reviews say that you're not supposed to use cover as much as previous games. I don't know if I necessarily believe this as I've used cover as much if not more than previous games, especially using the sniper rifle. Again, true to the roots.
Secondly, the game is a prequel and designed to be a filler in the Gears series, it's not really a main numbered entry. I get it, I understand how you all don't want things to change, but come on. This was a great filler into the back stories of Cole and Baird, plus two new intriguing characters. There's also a kind of continuation of Gears 3 once you obtain enough stars. Thirdly, the multiplayer is pretty cool. I like the mode overrun and the objective based modes in this game. Once you play the campaign through on Hardcore+, you have a decent understanding of what most weapons do, their strengths/weaknesses, and this definitely helps in multiplayer. Listen, games change, developers change, and ultimately, whether you like it or not, it is all about making that money for the company who produces and releases the game. We, as fans, are lucky they continue to make more entries to our favorite series.
If the company continues to rehash what they've been doing without introducing new elements, everyone is going to complain just as much, probably more. People want shoot-em-up's, people want achievements, people want something to strive for. The company just added that in to maximize market potential. It's life. Halo changed, Metroid changed, Zelda changed, Mario changed, Final Fantasy changed, all franchises change to sell games. It's a part of video game life. The only franchise that hasn't is Call of Duty and everyone complains how that's "THE SAME GAME WITH DIFFERENT GUNS AND MAPS" too. I swear, you all will find something to nitpick and complain about everything.
The only thing that bothers me about this game's campaign is how choppy it is. I hate the storyline being broken up by my accumulation of stars. I hate the declassify thing, albeit I can see why they added it, but it really adds to the arcade-choppy feel of the game. And without them, you barely get one star per. This is the only aspect of the game that I can say made me want to turn and run. The rest is brilliant.
This is a good game. If you liked any of the series and want to learn more about Cole and Baird while getting an action-packed ride, pick this up.
Average User Score: 5.2Jan 15, 2013LOL @ all these people hating on the game because it's different. I've played all the DMC games and this one is one of the best. The combatLOL @ all these people hating on the game because it's different. I've played all the DMC games and this one is one of the best. The combat is fluid, the story is fun - and don't even say it's edgy because of the dialogue. People in the real world don't speak in perfect dialogue all the time, every day. I hear curse, disgusting words around me all the time, every day. So why wouldn't an actual protagonist? Get real. Don't hate on the game just because it's not the old DMC. Give it a shot. Rock it out. Have fun. Don't listen to these haters.… Expand
