The impossible 6 star rating?

The E3 demo looked really damned good. So I'm expecting GOTY material out of this.

#3 Posted by Bladefire (214 posts) -

I don't think they give half stars, so my guess is 5.

#4 Posted by Jensonb (1769 posts) -

A fair, justified score.

#5 Posted by Hulk (428 posts) -

Hulk expect Giant Bomb give Gears 2 what Gears 2 deserve.

#6 Posted by BiggerBomb (6944 posts) -

I don't like to speculate about how a game will be rated before it has been released.

P.S. Kudos to Hulk for his commitment.

I think Gears 2 can get a perfect rating.

#8 Posted by steve316 (102 posts) -

they gave bad company a 5/5, im sure gears 2 will be better

#9 Posted by JibaaJabba (78 posts) -

What it deserves!

#10 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

I bet it will be five stars.

They don't give half-star ratings.

If the game is as good as the original, it will be in the five-star range.

Could be, since it's a 5/5

I think 3/5 is more likely though
#13 Posted by poser (452 posts) -

I'm sure it will get a prefect score... all mindless "fun" games do, regardlessly of quality or substance.

OMFG CHAINSAWS!!!11

Prove me wrong, I dare ya...

#14 Posted by sdodd02 (722 posts) -

5/5

#15 Posted by Froghourt (111 posts) -

Well, Gears 2 looks to be even better than Gears 1, and that game was awesome, so.

To answer your question, probably 5/5.

Ya they dont give half stars. That would totally defeat the purpose of their rating system. Because its supposed to be simple. Live and learn though

I think their going to give it 5 stars. They all seemed to be really excited about it at E3. And Im sure if its better then the first one then they will be able to classify it as a "must buy"
#17 Posted by Spiritof (2092 posts) -

Right now? At this very moment?

Hopefully a zero seeing as it's not out yet. Or perhaps a 15.257 zebras out of 225 maple leaves. That would make me happy.

#18 Posted by gameshark5 (248 posts) -

i expect they'll give it 5 stars

#19 Posted by Conner (88 posts) -

I think they will give it 5 stars. They gave Battlefield a 5 and I believe Gears 1 was better than Battlefield.

#20 Posted by LuffyUzumaki (453 posts) -

5/5

That's a good point. 5/5, but I hope Jeff gives a well rounded review.  I like this rating system better, because it is more general. It is like a hotel. A 4-star game is like a 4-star hotel almost, but not quite
#22 Posted by roofy (1005 posts) -

hahaha

you can tell how long the OP has been on Giantbomb

they dont give out half stars

#23 Posted by Ma7moud (805 posts) -

5/5

#24 Posted by joshuapohl (43 posts) -

Probably 5 stars because it is even better than the original which was five star quality.

#25 Posted by epic_pets (1339 posts) -

a 6 star.
5/5

#26 Posted by xplodedd (1316 posts) -
#27 Posted by OblivionGuy07 (161 posts) -

#28 Posted by Charles (90 posts) -

Seriously? :O

I like GiantBomb's style of reviewing, if it's a really good game, it'll get  5 stars. They know the written review tells more then a number. And I'm 100% sure GiantBomb will give Gears 2 5 stars.
#32 Posted by Vlademir (1029 posts) -

Gamespot, IGN, and Gametrailers will give it an 11/10 and Giant Bomb will give it a 6/5.

It will be that good. :P

I'm saying 5/5

#35 Posted by Ossi (1229 posts) -

5/5 - this game is gunna kick ass.

#36 Posted by SSbabel (1141 posts) -

Yeh im going with 4-5 stars some where round there.

#37 Posted by Rowr (5824 posts) -

umm whatever the games worth. Its kind of not out yet, hard to make an assumption.

Being a fan I obviously hope for a 5 star.

#38 Posted by Whisperkill (2969 posts) -

If they gave Bad Company a 5, then Gears 2 already has a 5 even before it comes out

#39 Posted by John_FN_Seiler (11 posts) -

I think there going to give it 5 Old Matches out of 7 Tomato Cans

#40 Posted by Colin (707 posts) -

Depends how good it actually is :P

Me too =)
#42 Posted by Subway (971 posts) -

I'm going to guess 5/5 since 5/5 is pretty much saying the game is worth trying for anyone, and it can be a great experience, not that the games perfect.

#43 Posted by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

An easy 5 stars.

#44 Posted by Hughes (399 posts) -

Probably 5

#45 Posted by Shinedown220 (148 posts) -

considerring they only use a 5 point scale, my guess is a 5/5

Resistance 2 5/5
killzone 2 5/5
LBP 5/5
Fable 2 5/5
Fallout 3 5/5
Resident Evil 5 5/5

#46 Posted by Couse (68 posts) -

5..

#47 Edited by AndrewB (7689 posts) -

It's a tough call.  My own impressions of the game lead me to believe it to be a 5 star. It won't be perfect, but it will be more of the same with a whole lot of tweaks and new hitches. Considering how great the first game was, that is pretty much what I want the game to be in the first place though. I think Giant Bomb staff will rate it the same. That or a 4.5 for the above mentioned reasons, if seen as a flaw.

Although I don't see much of a point in trying to guess what someone else will think of the game. All that matters in the end is what you think of the game.

#48 Posted by FleaFive (20 posts) -

5/5 I think.

#49 Posted by n1ck (35 posts) -

they will give it a 5/5 rating

#50 Posted by Bluemouth (36 posts) -

If Gerstmann reviews it, then a 5.

One of the others, which won't happen, then you never know.
