Default Lower PC GoW scores is Bullshi*

“I think it’s bull****,” he told MundoRare. “Because what we did was take a great game, Gears of War 1 for Xbox 360, made it run at higher resolutions and added three new hours of really good gameplay and it got lower reviews. I think that’s bull****, and I don’t understand it. I can’t figure out what it is.

“Like, ‘It’s an old game.’ Well, yeah, but it’s new on that platform, so I was really surprised to see lower reviews for what I think a much better game. It had new multiplayer modes, new levels, three hours of gameplay you never saw on 360 that the 360 guys are still upset we haven’t given them, right? So to get lower reviews for more game that’s good? It just doesn’t make any sense.”
Epic cries a lot.

To put it simply... the quality of a PC game is higher than the one of a console. The PC platform is with us for all those years and we've seen amazing AAA titles. GoW for the PC had to top them all to get higher scores, whereas in X360 it didn't have any real competition. Finally, the PC reviewers are generally more demanding and don't give easily high scores (for instance, check the multiplatform games which are way better on the PC. You'll see that their scores are lower than the ones of the consoles versions or check the console games that didn't impress the PC gamers at all with their graphics but still got a 9/10 in the graphics area).

Exactly. Why is Halo royalty on the Xbox, but average on the PC? it's because of changes in standards when coming to PC. It's not BS, it's just, in general, impressing PC gamers is tougher than console gamers.

Plus, hype should never be under estimated for review scores and impressions, and it's hard to hype a console port released a while afterwards. He's overlooking the fact most reviews of GoW on the 360 were done around or even before release time and are probably inflated due to the hype around the title.

Agree with JohnDio, however Gears of War PC has been one of the best games I enjoyed last year, for me it deserves 9/10, even more if you play in coop with a friend. Sure it needed a couple of patches, but once they arrived the game works great, at least for me.

BTW I have checked Metacritic and the game averages 87%, with half of the reviews giving at least a 9/10, so I'm not sure why he's complaining about the reviews

Is this game finally stable? How is the performance? I enjoyed it on the 360 but I always hoped a proper PC version would be relased, some very nice visuals that a proper PC could make even nicer.

GoW was not special...i don't know what he is ****ting about...

It might also help if you release it across all platforms at the same time...without the live royalty bull****.

I think it would have gotten a lot more respect if we didn't get it as sloppy seconds. It was M$'s cash cow though and were I in the position to make as much money as possible, I'd have done what they did.

Epic President Mike Capps was a little frustrated at the lack of love the PC version of Gears of Wars got:

“I think it’s bull****,” he told MundoRare. “Because what we did was take a great game, Gears of War 1 for Xbox 360, made it run at higher resolutions and added three new hours of really good gameplay and it got lower reviews. I think that’s bull****, and I don’t understand it. I can’t figure out what it is.

“Like, ‘It’s an old game.’ Well, yeah, but it’s new on that platform, so I was really surprised to see lower reviews for what I think a much better game. It had new multiplayer modes, new levels, three hours of gameplay you never saw on 360 that the 360 guys are still upset we haven’t given them, right? So to get lower reviews for more game that’s good? It just doesn’t make any sense.”

Here was the problem(s):

1) It used Windows Live for multiplayer -- However you want to spin it, unless you were a paying member, GFWL made for an ass-sucking experience trying to set up matches and finding games. Windows Live is now free, so assuming all of the "Gold" crap is now unlocked for everyone to use, might be decent now.

2) Bugs & Crashes - I don't know how well they eventually patched Gears of War on the PC, but at the time of its release, you were lucky to even be able to load the game much less play the new chapters.

If the matchmaking stuff has been unlocked and the game is all patched up, GoW PC might be worth another look. It's pretty cheap now as well -- check your local bargin bin -- so that's a plus too.

I still get the same stuttering problem(s) even after several driver updates, OS updates, a clean system format, a hardware re-seating session and a video card upgrade.

I've learned to live with it, though I don't think it will ever be resolved.
