Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Playing through a pre-release build of the game, these bugs were rife, which is why we waited until we had the final retail boxed copy in our hands before we reviewed it. But the bugs were almost worse in the final product. If these were infrequent occurrences, I might not even mention it, but I encountered at least one bug or glitch in every mission I played.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Overall, this game improves and fares just as well as the 360 version released a year ago. Despite its flaws, the characters, striking environments, special weapons and the inclusion of a game editor, longer single player campaign, additional achievements and new multiplayer maps makes Gears of War an exciting game that should not be missed. For those eager to experience an interactive and engaging PC shooter, look no further than Gears of War this holiday season.

Gears of War Review

VideoGamer.com
26 June 2008
  • Excerpt: When Gears of War came out as an Xbox 360 exclusive, it blew me away. The graphics were mind blowing, the combat did an amazing job of making you feel like you were bogged down in an intense firefight, and the chainsaw... well, let's just say, the first time I split a locust in half with it, I nearly soiled myself. Xbox 360 owners rejoiced, as did developer Epic and publisher Microsoft - the game has been a phenomenal success. But there were always a few niggles.

Gears of War (PC)

True achievements
18 June 2008
  • Conclusion: The glitches are the "crab walk", "weapon slide", and the worst the "kung fu flip" but these are also glitches that can be very fun to fool around with in private matches and what not. This game was one of the most entertaining games on the Xbox 360 and it dissevers its spot at the top of 3rd person shooters. The only thing that would hurt your gears experience on the PC is a computer not made to run video games other than that you're golden.

Gears of War (PC)

Crispy Gamer
30 January 2008
  • Excerpt: Gears of War isn't just another first-person shooter. Gears tells its story in third-person mode and uses an innovative and intuitive cover system. The game lets you slip behind cover to shoot blindly or position yourself to aim carefully; you can even leap heroically from cover to cover while shooting alien beasties also jumping from, say, a pile of rubble to an alleyway. Players can use a gamepad or the mouse and keyboard, and both control options work well.
