    We're all eagerly anticipating Gears of War, but reviews from gamers at a recent event weren't entirely complimentary.

    i have read that it was fantastic from a lot of people on gamespot. Some even saying it was a perfect ten so i take both with a pinch of salt.

    also i have read on many accounts that it was the game to play at just about every show lately with the stop and pop gameplay being a breath of fresh air. Sounds to me like a couple of gamers that couldnt get the hang of the controls.

    Im also suprised that you didnt include the other quotes saying

    One enthusiastic fan said he “loved the gore and blood and.” His buddy Sepher played in the same match and said that Gears of War “plays really well. It’s going to require a lot of team tactics.” After playing one of the first matches another gamer claimed that Gears of War was “kick ass” and while the general tone of the audience was positive we spoke to another gamer who was more critical of the game."

    im not having a moan by the way, just seemed a bit overly negative to me

    Very true, I take your point. I know it's had lots of great praise as well ( I did mention that many people were blown away by it) but we've already mentioned the positive loads, so the story was about the negative press. Perhaps I should have balanced it out a bit though like you said. I'm still looking forward to it!

    Gears of War is just a must have game, I'm really looking forward to it. I've got a bucket ready in preparation of the drooling I may do when I first see it on the big screen.

    I think much of the hype surronding stuff nowadays can be polarized and this seems to be what happens.

    The usual people love it and its "like the best thing in the world ever, ever and your life will never be the same again"

    And a few who don't shout it to whoever will listen for some geek fame points and geek respect points.

    People like me go, wow its just another game you either like it or you don't.

    Hopefully I'll be playing this tomorrow, so I'll be totally honest if I think it's not living up to the hype.

    The game looks fairly complex, so I'd imagine the control system is also quite complex to suit the gameplay (much in the same way GRAW's control system is). If that's the case then I'd imagine it's hard to get used to when you only get 10-15 minutes of play...not enough to give a bad review if you ask me.

    Got three letters to say about this: OMG!

    Me and Nick are still shaking our heads in disbelief at what we've been playing today. The dodgy control system moaning is total rubbish.

    More soon in a preview.
