    GoW2 or CoD5?

    Which game are you more excited about, Gears of War 2 out today or Call of Duty: World at War due next week? PS3 fanboys need not apply.

    cod5...

    cod 5, I'll wait a few months for gow2, roll on 14th nov!

    both via dual layer disk

    If i was an xbox owner i would be more excited about GOW2. Im not excited about either as COD5 is just a re-skin of cod 4, should be an expansion pack.

    Agreed played the demo last night now available to all, the MP is the exactly same at COD4 with WW2 skin lame.......

    same perks and dogs replace the helicopter etc etc

    not worthy of 40 quid within a year of COD4

    GOW2 should be GoW1.5

    GOW doesn't do it for me.

    CoD5 might be good I'm still on the fence. LittleBigPlanet now there's a great game :giggle: (serious I can't wait to get my hands on it again after the beta).

    Neither GOW was never for me.
    COD5 - isn't as good as i thought it would be.

    agreed, i dont see what the hype is about, both pretty boring

    I thought the same at first but "Don't fix what aint broke" springs to mind.

    I'm looking forward to see what other maps there are, and also single player/co-op should be awesome

    If CoD WaW is at least as good as CoD4, is that a good enough reason to get it if they're bored of CoD4? I prefer the modern setting myself

    Just found out that CoD WaW has been leaked for 360!

    As I love COD4 I would have normally said COD WAW, but since buying GOW2, I think Gears 2 wins hands down! I wasn't going to buy GOW2 as I only played the original a handful of times and didn't bother finishing due to boredom (+ I was rubbish at playing online). Now I'm glad I decided to purchase GOW2 - the singleplayer is much more captivating than the original and the multiplayer has more enjoyable options (Horde). After playing the beta of CODWAW, it seems like a makeover of COD4 and not particularly offering anything new, so I recon if I purchased it, I would only end up going back to COD4 again.

    having played them both i'd say cod5 is the better game of the two and before i played either i was really looking forward to gears 2 and not so bothered about cod5.

    gears 2 is just the same thing all the way through, at least cod has a bit of variety. I was really surprised just how good cod5 is.

    Basically my opinion is the same as souljacker, but the games reversed :p:-D

    I imagine that based on past experience COD will last longer for me personally but I have bought both. COD WAW is no more a re-skinning of previous game than any sequel is. What do you think they did with Gears - recode it from the ground up? The multiplayer is very similar in gameplay but with vastly different maps but the single player is a complete new story so how is that a re-skin? COD WAW has been much maligned by muppets going on about how COD3 was much worse than COD2 (it wasn't but it was different and the maps were too big) and if rather than commenting on something they hadn't actually seen, they had given it a chance they might have been surprised. After all it is getting very good reviews if you check Metacritic or gamesrankings.

    Gears is fantastic but the gameplay isn't as instantly accessable as COD and will appeal more to a hardcore gamer than a casual/occasional one (especially the multiplayer).

    In answer to the actual question though. I'd say that I ended up more 'excited' about Gears which I found really odd as I pretty much hated Gears 1 (despite trying really hard to like it and even buying it and selling it twice) and I've played COD4 practically non stop since the first day if it's beta release. Like I say though - bet I'll play COD WAW more in the long run.
