Which one is better, I cant decide I only have enough money for one. Which one has better single-player, and multi-player

ya i agree alittle but but i must admit cod3 is great and the single player is a blast

Don't choose; rob a bank right now and get both. If you get busted though, get GoW.

Gears of War. COD3 is boring if you've played COD2 as much as I have.

11-11-2006, 04:48 AM
I think CoD3 multiplayer will have more replay value then GoW... that's just my opinion though.

Pick from these 2 choices instead

Call of Duty 3
Rated 8.8 on IGN which gave COD2 a 9.0
A game on more than just the xbox 360
A game that you just played within the last year, but "new"
A game with not very different weapons than the original
Even the case is similar in design! I couldn't tell it was the 3rd one when I saw it until i saw the 3!"

Quote from IGN "If you want a near perfect descriptor of the gameplay in COD3 just pop in last year's hit Call of Duty 2" = repetition x 2


Gears Of War
The first official next gen game
Rated 9.4 on IGN
New weapons never seen before

Quotes from IGN

"Gears of War more than lives up to the impossible hype."

"It's here that you truly realize what a masterpiece Epic has created in Gears of War (http://xbox360.ign.com/objects/747/747891.html). Yes, it's the most gorgeous looking game on the Xbox 360, period. Yes, the sound design is worthy of awards. Yes, the game is fun as hell"

This is a no-brainer - GoW for sure.

I'd get Gears of War but they're both great games.

One word: GOW

11-11-2006, 10:22 PM

having now played both i have this to say:
cod3 is a HUGE step forward and is soooo much better than cod2.
Gears is fantastic. and the single player is very challening. i suggest bringing a friend along your adventure..havent gotten a chance to try out the multi yet as my live is on suspension right now.

GOW, I'm really disappointed with COD3. It looks alot better then the second, but it seems as if the A.I is as stupid and annoying as ever.

11-13-2006, 05:02 PM
Definately need to go for Gears of War. Great action, graphics, and audio! Not a 10...but damn close!!!

11-13-2006, 06:56 PM

Get GoW

Cod3 is an extremely fun game, fantastic multiplayer. Havent played GoW yet but I heard it wasnt very good from someone. I can obviously see that he is wrong now lol. Il definitley be picking up GoW when I've finished COD, shouldnt be long :)

Go get Gears of War.

11-14-2006, 07:20 AM
Gears of War hands down. Call of Duty 3 doesn't even get up to the level of CoD2, and Gears has both of them beat.

No. Call of Duty 2 is actually better than Gears of War. I found it alot more fun to play...

11-15-2006, 05:05 AM
Gears of War hands down buddy. Then again, I havn't played CoD3 yet, lol.

11-17-2006, 07:35 PM
I'm a COD2 Veteran so what I say goes. lol. GOW and COD3 are both great games. I'd honestly hate to pick one or the other, but I must admit. GOW is overhyped. It really is. I think COD3 will get much more single player playtime out of me.

cod3 is a HUGE step forward and is soooo much better than cod2.

That's funny that you say that because everyone I've talked to said that CoD2 was a lot better than CoD3. A lot of people hate how big the multiplayer maps are and feel that the single player isn't as smooth.

I love both games but of your only going to get one, get Gears. Call of Duty 3 is great, but after playing gears having no cover system just doesn't seem right.

You gotta get GoW because the first play will have you giggling like a schoolgirl!...it really is that good.

Saying that...there isn't much replay value and multiplayer is very repetitive. If money is tight...get CoD3 cos you'll get a longer, more varied gaming experience. If not buy both...finish GoW in a few hours and then play CoD3! Once that's finished, go play GoW online for a bit and HOPEFULLY Treyarch will have patched CoD by then. ;)

gow is the best game eva untill halo 3 of course but cod 3 is really fun but i dont like it cause it takes 4eva to get a online match i waited 4 an houre to get in a online match then i lagged out nd i have a 3.0 conection soo ya

Its strange, quite a lot of people say COD3 is great but some critics have reallly had a swipe at it. Like the pointless minigames that you always win and ofcourse the problems with online ranked games. But once they get it all patched up COD3 will be a great to play.
