Check out metacritic. 105 reviews, only one below 89. Thats how many how love it. Or just google GOTY awards 2009 to see who won most of those ^_^.

 

Now who can like Gears, I hate it! (Personally preference but its true..) had Gears 2 and I despised its online play.. oh god the horrors. Horde was fun though, didn't fancy the macho campaign with its story, seriously locusts?



I've never played Uncharted series and my friend refused to buy it, so I didn't get to experience it yet, so can't really comment. Besides neither of the games are out for a good solid 6 plus months period, so the comparison, at the present is void. The question should have been "Which one do you think will be better?" or perform better sales wise etc. Imo.



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

so what if its won loads of rewards and metacritic like it. I DONT! and this is my opinion which i am standing by. im not going to let a fanboy sway my perfectly understandable opinion that Uncharted is rubbish.

I got my 360 in 2007 and got Gears a few months later.  It really blew me away.  I got my PS3 in 2008 and got Uncharted a short while later.  Graphically impressive but not as good as I hoped.  I got Gears 2 in 2008 and was blown away again by the campaign.  I got U2 in 2009 and was also blown away by the improvements and graphics.  The series I foind myself enjoying the most was Gears, though.  I'm a bit of a sci-fi fan and I just enjoy the Gears world a bit more.

I'm definitely getting both on day one but I suspect I'll enjoy Gears 3 moore and play the campaign more, too.  I haven't given online a fair chance in either series.

There are 32 votes for Uncharted 3 in the poll; I wouldn't have guessed there were that many people here who OWNED a 360 (as you were to have both to post, right)?  HAHA, just kidding.

The Gears universe and it's inhabitants resonated with me in a larger than life way (probably because they are in a larger than life struggle).  Additionally I have personally found no other multiplayer game that has the same visceral appeal of Gears. 

The two together make Gears the choice for me, though I will be lucky enough to play both.

SEE, you CAN state a preference for a game without insulting the other - it IS possible!



I think Uncharted 3 to be a massively better game. My reasons:

1) Uncharted has characters I can care about far more, they show more personality and trigger emotion. Gears of War centers around some empthy headed testosteroned Space Marines. Awesome acting performances in the Uncharted series, IMO quite horrible in Gears of War.

2) Story telling. IMO Uncharted is worthy of hollywood in this regard, Gears of War's story is forgetable to say the least. Actually after completing Gears of War 1, I forgot the plot, actually even before that... Something about the fate of human kind on some foreign planet being in the hands in some peanut brained bodybuilders during some strange alien invasion. From what I have seen from Gears of War 2 it's more of the same and I think Gears of War 3 will be more of the same too.

3) Graphically Uncharted 2 looks way beyond anything achieved in Gears of War for example with regard to fluid animations/progress, details, lighting, special effects and physics. Even Uncharted 1 performed anti-aliasing combined with great HDR in high definition which no 360 game has been able to match.

4) Audio wise, the Uncharted series comes in multiple languages. So when I play through the campaign a few more times (on a higher difficulty level), I switch to another language like my native language Dutch and maybe German after completing the campaign in English. This actually keeps the story feel fresher to me.

5) Online mulitplayer. Uncharted 2's online mulit-player is a lot more varied and it's also available for free to anyone who buys the game! On the XBox 360 you need to pay extra each month/year to be able to play the game online and what's even worse you will have to bug your gaming buddies to do the same...

6) Gameplay mechanics. Drake is a lot more flexible with regard to movement than Marcus. Drake can roll dive, hang from the edge of a building while aiming and shooting. You can perform various pushes and kicks. Marcus can unrealistically crouch run (I'm a physiotherapist) but is unable to jump 10 centimeters.

7) Art design. The Uncharted series takes a picturesque approach with lots of epic moments and amazing views. Gears of War takes a dull alien scenery approach and lacks for instance arty death scenes and amazing lighting as seen in the Killzone or God of War series on the PS3. In the Uncharted series there are also interesting females (also in terms of character design/development), Gears of War 3 looks to take the shemale approach instead...

8) Lastability. The Uncharted series include lots of hidden treasures, which make it more interesting to replay the campaign again. Also see my comments with regard to online play above.

9) Sense of humour. Gears of War tries to be funny like some aliens crushing some tiny mammels under their boots or boomers saying boom like a 3 year old when they fire upon you with a rocket launcher. The Uncharted series takes much more clever and well thought "Indy" kind of approach IMO adults (and for example females around watching) will find a far more enjoyable approach.

10) Killing the bad guys. In Gears of War many enemies could only be killed by some remote satelite laser. You can't hurt those bigger guys in any other way. IMO this was used too often. In the Uncharted series you actually have to make plans when in cover. For example, first I am going to sneak kill that guy from behind, get his gun and hide behind the table and wait for the second guy when he comes examining. Then I am going to blow up the fuel cannister to kill the 2 guys there and then.. You get the point. Not nearly as much the case in Gears of War.

I could go on and on, but it's already a 10 - 0 victory for Uncharted! IMO the Uncharted series is way beyond Gears of War's league!

IMO Gears of War voters give Uncharted a try!

Hey! i tried to write a comment not insulting the game I didn't vote for and you tried to write a comment doing nothing BUT insulting the game you didn't choose.

I'm sensing a pattern in your posting here...



well althopugh i loved uncharted 2 i voted gears 3 because as a whole gears 3 seem slike itll offer alot more: 4 player co-op campain, multiplayer fixed by beta, and both horde and beast modes.

Although uncharted will still have much better graphics and both are still day 1 buys for me

Which points you agree and don't agree with?

I think that would be a more constructive approach.
