COD3 or GOW

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

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.

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


OR

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. 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"

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
