Gears of War = "Zero Innovation"

Gears of War = “Zero Innovation”

EA Montreal’s General Manager, Alain Tascan, has hit out at Gears of War claiming it has no innovation whatsoever. Speaking at the Montreal Games Summit, Tascan stated:

“What is Gears of War? I mean Gears of War brings nothing in terms of innovation to the shooter… Like, zero. Only two very brave UK-based journalists said, ’You know what, Gears of War is a great game but it’s like what Quake was a few years ago.

“Why are people loving it so much? It’s like added production value, incredible cutscenes and the best ever graphics ever. I’m sure it’s going to be a great success, I can’t wait to play it, but let’s face that graphics are still number one.

“I’m not talking about my tastes, I’m just saying, when you go to meta-critic and you see a 96 for Gears of War, then you read the critics saying, ’Okay, storyline – there’s none, gameplay is not innovative…’ Then I say, why did they give this 96? They were blown away by the high quality of the graphics… Myself, I prefer something more creative.”
