Cliffy B Mad At Eurogamer For Scoring Gears Of War 3 8/10

For any other game, 8/10 would be a wonderful score, but Epic Games’ Cliff Bleszinski, sees things differently. He’s now calling Eurogamer’s review of Gears of War 3 “hateful”, in that anyone who rates the TPS 8 is hateful towards it.

“Doing great, apart from a couple of haters,” Cliffy told VG247, while speaking to the site about review scores. When asked to elaborate on the haters in question, he pointed to Eurogamer’s 8/10 review.

“You know, I didn’t quite gather it. I don’t want to come across as defensive,” he defensively said. “How do I phrase this properly? When people rated Gear 2 higher than Gears 3, it kind of upset me because I know Gears 3 is a better game on every level.”

You know Cliffy B, Ernice Gilbert don’t quite get your attitude either. Any other game would have been cool, right? But because it’s the almighty Gears of War 3, it’s an abomination to give it anything lower than a 10?

Get off your high horse, dude, come back to reality. This is sickening.

    dude hes not serious he likes to poke the fire a bit.
    you should know that by now.
    though hes got a point, how can gears 3 get lower scores then 2?
    its like giving uncharted a 10 and giving uncharted 2 a 8!
    im sorry, but it does not take a brain surgeon to figure out uncharted 2s a far better game then the original.

    What do you mean how can Gears 3 get a lower score than Gears 2? So you’re saying once it’s a sequel it must score higher? Come on! Cliff was serious about his comments, that’s why he was going on mental on twitter. He really needs to stop this.

    “In my heart I believe this is the best game this studio has ever produced in its 20 year history. Taking jokes out of context is not “news.”

    Don’t be fooled Nick, Cliffy was not joking. He’s backpedaling.

    he was joking.
    no im saying how can a game thats better score lower?
    hes not saying 8 is too low a score for gears 3 hes saying that gears 3 is a far better game so how can it score worse.
    im really starting to get tired with these it does not do anything new reviews and i know he is too because hes hit out on that so many times.
    every single review i have read only bad thing they have had to say about gears 3 is that it does not do anything new, then deduct 1 or 2 points just because of that!
    what, so for a game to deserve a 10 it has to be dramatically new?
    how much you want to bet if they did change things up reviewers would be deducting the same points simply because it no longer feels like a gears game?
    its a sequel for crying out loud, sequels are not suppose to drastically change the gameplay there suppose to improve on it!
    as the saying goes if it aint broke dont fix it!
    you cant fix whats not broken.
