Default GOW or SD vs. RAW?..

Ok..So I got the 360 for Christmas with Madden and Burnout Revenge..And I have 60 bucks left over...And have narrowed it down to these two games to be the third in my collection. I know Gears has a tremendous amount of hype behind it..And all the reviews I've read seem to live up to the hype. But there was some tidbit about the single player mode being short..And since I don't go online or multiplayer that much..I'm worried about the value..Although the graphics and gameplay look outstanding. SD vs. RAW also looks incredible..But I've had every SD game except SD vs. RAW 2006...And I've been looking for a good knock down drag out shooting game for a while.

So which is the better value?..Which would you get if you had to make the choice?

SvR was very disappointing IMO...and I only rented it.

Gears of War is one of the best games I have ever played. So, Gears of War.

I've only played SVR a little bit, and I like it a lot so far.

I've had Gears of War for almost two months and it barely left my console in that time period. The single player campaign is somewhat short, around 8-10 hours on Casual difficulty. It takes longer on the Hardcore and Insane difficulty levels though. Plus there's different achievements that you can work towards accomplishing which adds longevity and replay value to the game. Also, it isn't really considered online multiplayer, but if you do have Live, you can play through the campaign co-op with friends online. That makes the campaign a lot more fun in my opinion, and that's hard to do considering it's fun as hell as it is.


I would personally say to get Gears. It's fucking awesome

Judging on feedback gathered from others, experience playing the SvR games and the commercial trailers, I'd say go with GOW.

I mean, sure...the acronym is the same as the Best Game Ever...but if you can't rip people/things in half with your bare hands in that game...then I'm sure you can blow them up...

Late.

GoW now officially stands for Gears of War. No other game deserves the acronym

I'd say go with GoW. I didn't find campaign too short, but then again I suck at all non-sport video games.

By far the best game for the 360.

i don't own a 360, but GOW Sounds like the more enjoyable title.

SVR is pretty much the same old, same old. i have the PS2 version, but Graphics aside, there really looks to be no real major diffrences.

Get Gears. You'll enjoy it more. Plus you can get SvR 07 later.

Just played Gear for 2 hours..Took me more than a minute to get into..I haven't played a FPS in years. Graphics are amazing as I expected..I do like that your team knows what the hell they're doing,helps tremendously. Worth it so far..But I haven't even gotten to the bosses and such yet..I'd expect it gets hellaciously intense there.

Yeah the game it self is only 10 hours long. But if it's a shooter your looking for with awesome graphics and length get call of duty 3.
